RSillions of Gross Ties Pur
chased by Railroads in
Washington, Juno 10 During the
year 1008, the steam and electric rail
roads of the United States piirehnsod
more than U'J.OOO.OOO cross-ties costing
at the point of purohase, over $5,U0O,
000 an average of fifty cunts per tie, ac
cording to statistics just mado public
by the Itureau of the Census in co
operation with the United States forest
Service. Tilts was some 10,000,000 ties
less than the quantity purchased iti
19o7, when the total was approxmatoly
1011,700,000, the highest over recorded.
The decreased purchased in 1908 were,
of course, chiefly due to the business
depression which ollected every lino
of industry. This forced most of tho
roads to purchase only tho ties which
were absolutely essential for renewals,
and heavily cut down tho purchase foe
new track. In 100S only 7,4Hl,)00 cross
ties were reported as purchased for
new track as against 2:i,.r).'.7,000 in 1907.
Of the total number of ties purchased
for all purposes, tho steam roads took
approximately ninety-four per cent,
leaving about six per cent for the elec
It is very interesting to note the
wide range of woods used for cross
ties Tho preliminary report by the
Census Bureau lists separately tiftcen
classes or species. Of these tho oaks
are now and have always been by far
the most Important. Tho oak tics
ununited in moro. than 18,0(10,000. or
forty-three per cont of tho total quan
tity purchased. Next to these ranked
tho southern yellow pines, with 21, .100
000. or nineteen per cent of tho total.
It will bo seen that the oaks and. sontli
orn pines combined furnished nearly
three fourths of all the ties bought by
the rail-roads companies last year.
Cedar and chestnut supplied more than
8,000,000,000 ties each, and Douglas (li
nearly as much. About 1,000,000 tam
arack ties wore purchased, nearly
:i,r,00,0o0 cypress ties, and, In round
numbers, 11,000,000 each of western
pine nnd hemlock. Redwood, white
pine, lodgepolo pino, gum, beech,
spruce, and several other woods were
used In smaller quantities
While tho oaks, and particularly tho
white oaks, have always been tho pre
ferred woods for cross-tlos and still
form a large proportion of the total,
tho Increasing prices which the roads
have had to pay for satisfactory oak
ties are forcing them to look moro and
more for substitutes. This accounts
in part for tho groat variety of wood
reported. White oak untreated, makes
a tie which gives oxcollont scrvico for
many years, but it has been found
possible to take woods which naturally
are not durable, give them a treat
ment with oltheroreosoto or zlnoohlo
rulo, which vs ill pro vent decay, and
thus get much longer service from
them can bo scoured from untreated
oak tics. Amoiig the woods which

have been most largely treated far
are the yellow pines, paraieularly lob
lolly pine, Douglas fir. western pine,
and ludgepole pine.
This year's statistics adds to the list
two kinds of cross-ties which previously
had not been reported in sutlieient
quantity to justify listing them sepa
rately. These are gum and beech.
Tho purchases of gum ties in 190H ex
ceeded 2(!().()0o. while but slightly more
than iri.oOO of them were roported in
the previous year. Of beech ties, tho
purchases in 190S amounted to nearly
l9:i,0()0, against but little more than
51,000 in 1907. These are woods which
are distinctly not suitable for utoss
ties unless thoy tiro given preservative
treatment. Their increased use, there
fore, is ono of tho many results of tho
progress of wood preservation in the
Unted stutes. For many years beech
lias been ono of tho principal eros
tlo woods in Ktiropo, where Its value
when given chemical treatment was
long ago rccogul.cd. It is not un
common for European roads to socuro
from twenty to thirty years service
from beech i toss-ties, t'ntrcated they
would not last long enough to warrant
their us-e at all.
Corn (iroHcrs Have Chance
Any farmer will have a chance to
win prizes since tho winners of t hit
1907 and I9JS sweepstakes have been
eliminated from entering tho regular
classes at tint next corn show
In addition to this the exposition
will give no cash prize of ?u.uiiO to the
winner of tho grand champion sweep
stakes the grand premier trophy be
ing considered sullleiunt reward to
gether with tho honor of winning Hie
Instead of the $1,090 cash prize for
the champion sweepstakes, three
sweepstakes prize shave boon arranged,
giving ono to each of tho best ton ears
of yellow, white and other than yellow
or white, which Includes flint, red and
Tlieso changes woro decided on at a
mooting of the exocutivo committee of
tho oxposition and vice presidents of
the National Corn Association, held
in Omaha last week.
Tho management has also decided
that all exhibits must be in Omaha at
tho oflice of a transportation company
or on tho oxposition grounds by No
