Volatile resins, sap and gums, vaporized in burning wood, condense in a cold chimney and form creosote-like tars on the sides of the flue. These can ooze through masonry cracks and stain the chimney. A brisk, leaping fire will heat the flue enough to carry such tars off in the smoke. 104th_. Mrs. Barbara Arnold was feted March 8 on the occasion of her 104th birthday! Mrs. Arnold, Wayland's oldest resident, enjoyed having about fifty callers on her day. i Those Heavenly Carpets by LEES at BJUSTROM FURNITURE N.W.
