Since the settlement o f the dif

logging have begun in earnest.
The rebuilding of the large shay
was commenced last week and
parts were shipped to the machine

a week at the shops and three or
four days to re-assemble. They
have room to deck between six
and seven million feet o f logs
for the day when the mountains
are filled with snow and the log
