ter Is tho construction of tho logging
road for which y. J. Ward has a con
tract. According to tho company's plans
the logging road Is to inako connec
tion with tho railroad company lino
at a point on tho north sldo of tho
mill yard In order that supplies and
other mntorlal for the woods may ho
takon right through without transfor
from ono lino to tho other. Until
tho bridge and railroad line woro
definitely settled upon It was Impos
sible for the company to locate Its
own logging rdnd. ,
Tho lOKKlnc rond will bo bIx

near tha old ico houso on tho rlvor.
On tho north side of tha mill slto a
