Business & Professional Notices from 1911

KLAMATH FALLS, Or., April 13. — (Special.) — Marion F. Loosley, a pioneer of the Wood River Valley at the north end of Upper Klamath Lake, has just closed a deal with M.L. Erickson, supervisor of the Crater National Forest, for the purchase of 30,000,000 feet of fine timber on that forest reserve. The land lies on Seven-Mile Creek and embraces 2500 acres heavily timbered with yellow and sugar pine, Douglas and white fir. The price paid for the timber is: Yellow and sugar pine, $3.25 per thousand; Douglas fir, $2.25, and white fir, $1.35. Mr. Loosley was formerly in the sawmill business on a small scale in the Wood River Valley, but for several years devoted his attention to cattle raising. It is understood that he has ordered machinery to establish a mill on Seven-Mile Creek to cut up the timber he has purchased. The mill is to be within a short distance of the edge of the lake, where water transportation can be had near the Oregon Trunk road, which is surveyed through from Medford to tap the big timber belt north of here.

TILLAMOOK, Or., July 29 — (Special.) — The port of Tillamook has contracted with Spitzer Rorick & Company, of Ohio, to float $150,000 worth of six per cent bonds at par.

Atlanta Bridge Completed—Bert Butler and J.C. Durant have returned to the city after completing the new bridge over the Boise river, on the Atlanta road. The new bridge is an 80-foot span, and was built to replace the one washed out by the high water of last spring. Considering the difficulties encountered, the men are said to have made remarkable time in the construction of the bridge, the work having been completed in 18 days.
