BREVITIES, A Wilderness Becomes a City—the City a Wilderness. Upon the margin of a sylvan lake, "Where once the timid deer at evening stood, Or in the cooling depths her thirst did slake, There sprang a city in the solitude. ■*(! % *^! % :$e Where once the city's noisy stir arose, The dwelling and the shop stand tenantless; Tlie owlet's _,oot at daylight's dismal close Alone disturbs this second wilderness. * * * The solitude that God himself creates Is full of grace and majesty and power; The solitude that man, the creature, makes, No beauty holds to 'guile the sluggish hour. —B. D. P.. One year ago the 10th of this month the plant and lumber of the Lansing Lumber Co. at Dodge went up in smoke, die loss being about a quarter of a million of dollars. The fire originated in the shingle mill at noon and in brief time was beyond control and cleaued up everything in the yard. The Clare and Harrison fire departments were summoned and responded promptly but little could be done except to save the logs on the bank of ■the lake. Two days after tne fire the ground for 25 or 30 acres was as clean as a house floor, except for the ashes. A small mill was subsequently put in to cut what logs were in the lake, some three or four million*- feet of lumber being now in the yards awaiting shipment. During the past winter cedar business flourished and the ground is pretty well covered with paving stuff and poles. It is now probable that by July the yard will be as clear of any thing of value as it was the day after the great fire, as every thing will be shipped out and the track from Hatton to Dodge taken up. The once flourished lumber town will indeed be a "deserted village." The history of the little burgh is very interesting. The Lansing Lumber Company of whom Dodge & Barns were the leading members of the firm, owned a large tract of pine in the north eastern part of Glare county and in Gladwin. Some of it was as pretty timber as ever stood up. For the cutting of the lumber for this tract they built a mill on the bank of a pretty sheet of water which was known to the early hunters as Blue- gill lake on account of the kind of fish in which it abounded. The scheme of the lumber Company was an ideal one. They built a lumber mill of enormous capacity, also a shingle and lath mill, kept big crews in the woods and in the mills, and the out-put was very large. The company laid out a village, built dwelling houses and rented them to their employes. They had a complete system of water works and electric lights, with an efficient fire department. It was a complete city, the company being the mayor, council, and the entire municipal equipment. The population of the little city was four or five hundred persons. After the first of July next it will be hard to find a score of persons left. After the fire a large number of the familes moved away and when the last board is shipped the remainder will follow. A. Woodmancy,' the genial book-keeper and general manager for the company now lives inLan- sing but comes up often enough to look after business. Much of the success of the great firm has been due to his careful, busines-like methods. Some of the other men who Have been especially prominent in that beehive of industry have beenL.M.Shum- way, F. E. Gleason, Frank Treadwell", and H. Duval. During the past season, which is likely to be the last, operations in cedar have been quite extensive. Mr. Gleason and Mr. Shumway have each gotten out. poles and paving. The former had a crew of about sixty men in the swamps this winter and now has piled up in the Dodge yards to show for it about 7200 poles and at Brinnon dam, a few miles south, 18000 pieces of paving stuff. He will have about 30 men pealing until the shipments are made. The Valentine Clark Company takes the poles and ships di-- ectfrom Dodge. Mr. Shumway had about 40 men during the winter. He has at Dodge 3000 poles and 40 cars of paving. Mr. Treadwell is busy with a crew of men sorting andrepiling theseveral million feet of lumber for shipment. The town will present a busy appearance UDtil mid-summer, and then it will Register Tomorrow. Eegister tomorrow, Saturday. C. S. Chase, Saginaw Monday. Wm. Wolsky spend Sunday in Saginaw.
