Pis, prospective logger^ that
have been out, ^rom two,to five
days looking over the blown down
timber have reported that the
down timber which was caused to
fall by the heavy wind which play
ed havoc throughout the northern
states early last fall, is nearly cor
rect. The most thickly pine sec
tions seemed to have been selected
by the wind in its course, hence
the pine blown is of the richest,
and the los in its proportion would
have been great had not a way
been found to save this down tim
We learn that the greater por
tion of this pine to be sa ed, is
underway by the efforts of, Agent
Michelet, and although final in
structions have not yet been for
warded by the department, it is
understod the pine will be handled
by local logging opereators and
the season promises to be unusual
1 good by reason of the present
heavy snow falls. The only draw
back will be that of hay, thoae
that made hay while the "sun
shone" may now reap their harv
It is further rumored that the,sale
will be made by advertisement,
to be sold to the highest bidder
under cempetitive sealed bids on
bank scale, and the contracts will
be entered into with Indians who
are able to furnish themselves
and to cut a specified amount of
logs etc., etc.
We do not know what the view

and for other purposes*.
The reserved sections held should
be comeniently located so the
hauling of lumber can be acces
sible from and to Pine Point, Wild
Rice Ri\er or Beaulieu, White
Earth ami other points. A few
of the prominent members ha\e
suggested as to location and the
alinohl coiiclush point was men- \JW*
tioned as wan located the old
Johnson .saw mill.
Ofcouse, nothing should obstruct

The foregoing is only a sugges
