It has now been three weeks nearly
since we beard anything of Major Gor
don or anything about the building of
the railroad. We suppose tlhogh as
soon as the rights of way have been
secured along the entire line. which no
doubt is necessary, then we will know
more detinitely as to the titme when
work will actually begin. We have
no doubt but the road will be built,
and at an early date at' that, but
we are anxiouns to see a real start made.
We were inlormted a few weeks ago
that the Fischer Lumber Co., had shut
down their nmill on account of havitng
a large amount of lumber on the yards,
which was a mistake. The mill has a
contract for all the cypress lumber
that it can saw, besida having e large
contract for several hundred thousand
feet of gum lumber, which is now be
ing sawed and stacked, so as to dry it
out for shipment.
