Fir & Spruce Will Saw.
The Fir & Spruce Lumber com
pany will begin operating their
sawmill at Toledo on or before the
first of the year. A crew of men
under J. G. Plank is now building
a dyke along the bank of the slouch
to keep the water out of the yard
and mill, and work of putting the
mill in order to begin sawing will
probably begin in a few days.
The extent of the operations of
the company at present we are un
able to learn, but that the mill will
begin sawing there is no question.
This is indeed good news to our
people, as it means that every work

A Scoreless Game.
The football game at Elk City
last Saturday was by far the most
interesting game of the season, as
either side was unable to score.
While Elk City was short on junior
players and played four of the first
team in their lineup, Toledo boys'
superior playing more than equaled
the advantage in weight which the
Elk City boys had. Several times
Toledo came near scoring while Elk
City never became at all dangerous,
excepting once toward the end of
the latter half. In the second hal',
Toledo, by putting up a strong in
terference managed to break through
Elk City's line for a touchdown.
After the shouting had subsided tho
umpire decided that the ball had
been carried over the side line, s
the boys had to bring the ball back
and try it all over again. It is
thought by many that the umpire
became confused and got the man
with the ball and his inteferenco
mixed as they were dressed alike
and the inteference crossed over and
ran on the out side. Any how it
was a very good game and no one
was killed, although Elnjer HornT
ing was hurt and had to be taken
out of the game, Woods was laid
up for a few minutes but was able
to finish the game. We can give
no player especial praise as all
played for all they were worth and
did their parts well.
Following is the lineup.

Three of our enterprising young
sters went down to Rocky Bar to
fish by a bondfire. They failed to
return, and toward the small hours
of the night fathers and mothers
commenced to alarm the town for a
search, when the lads made their
appearance with a large wild cat.
Jack was out after wood and was
run into the camp by the cat, and
reported a bear; Mort made the
attack with an oar and was run into
the river. Lester attacked from the
rear with a club and with the assist
ance of Jack they captured the cat.
It is a large cat and must have put
up a good fight. As the boys don't
like to be interviewed on this battle
we connot give the exact facts.
