;. V; A Big: Enterprise.
One oi the biggest enterprises
in Benton county and "biggest"
will stand considerable emphasis
in this instance is the new lum
ber mill recently built by Messrs.
Fly nn and Ewing near the Alsea
mountain, about one mile west
of the old Huffman mill .The
visitor to tne sue ot the new
mill is astonished when coming
upon this flourishing industry in
the very heart " of the Forest.
.Two months ago when the mill
was put in Operation, a wilder
ness formed the surroundings.
Today it Is the center of a thriv
ing little sattlement. The plant
itself is one of the finest in the
state. : Near it . stands the eoin
pany's store, offices and barns
while grouped about are a dozen
residences, occupied by families
'The mill has a 90-horse power
boiler and tarns out 25,000 feet
of the finest kind of yellow fir
lumber per day. It has all mod-;
era equipments and the largest
orders can be filled promptly.
Over 700,000 feet of lumber; has
already been placed on the mar-1
ket. This means that a mine of
wealth lying undeveloped at oar
door, is being converted into a
commodity for whioh the outside
world will gladly exchange coin
of the realm. Nor is this all. Em
ployment is being given t6 farm
ers and their teams in the vicin
ity, and logger::, and mill men
with . their families have been
added to our population. Ten
or a dozen teams are kept haul
ing constantly, and about 20
men find employment about the
camps and mill. About $60 a
day is dibursed in wages. .
This is parely a Benton county
enterprise. ; It is owned by: Ben
ton county men and was built
with Benton county eapital.
Every dollar earned by it remains
in Benton county. It deserves
the ' patronage of Benton county
people. Every person living
along : or using ; the. Alsea road
should support it, fof it is bound
to be a great factor in securing
the improvement of that high

every appearance of having been
discharged. Examination of. a
bole brought - to light a gopher
and Mr. . Sargeant started for
town in high glee. On reaching
the Oren home, some party there
wished to be showa how'the gun
operated. The inventor set the
hammer and pulled the trigger.
The gun was loaded., It went
off. - But any other gun would
have dons the satoe under like
circumstances. Mr. Sargeant' s
