MILL MAY START MARCH 1st
From reports, more or less re

the mill at this place will resume
operations the first o f March.
The report is that the Falls City
Lumber company will put men to
work in the woods in February
and that the mill will be ready
the first ot March. While there
is nothing absolutely certain that
the report is correct, it is fairly
reliable and from the reported
revival in the lumber industry on
