! BIG TIMBER TRANSFER ;
Mrs. M. E. Hailock Sells Two Thous
and Acres of Land to Eastern
' A deal has been consummated
whereby Mrs. M. E. Hailock has
sold to Minnesota parties 2000 acres .
of timber land on the LaCreole
river about six miles above Dallas. :
Rumors of a possible sale of the
Hailock lands, which comprise one
of the largest tracts of standing
timber held by a single owner in
Polk county, have been in the air
for many months, and it was known
that many Eastern capitalists had
been negotiating for their purchase.
The men who have purchased this
land are experienced sawmill men,;
and have capital sufficient to enable
them to carry out any enterprise
they may undertake.
Messrs. Fuller & Lacey, who
were instrumental in making this
sale, are not at present prepared to
say what the company will con
clude to do in the way 'of putting
in a milling plant, but it is hoped
that the purchasers will be able to
secure a sufficient amount of the
first-clas timber tt jbutary to, the
LaCreole river to justify them in
putting in one of the largest mills
on the Pacific Coast at Dallas.
