Lumber Mill

Tacoma Lumber almost shut down for the first time in three years when Jack, a thick Indian of one tribe or another, got mad at his Chinaman partner’s silence, slapped him with scrap wood, and sent him unconscious up the conveyor, tangled up in miscut boards and sawdust and into the wigwam.        

Maybe another crewman saw the incident. About the time fish-smoke jokes started around, the boss sauntered over to see if he couldn’t see what the rumor was about. Of course, Jack was long gone, and the wigwam burner glowed hot as ever, firing out smoke at the seams.
