News: Colby - Possible Lumber Shortage (9 Mar 1916)

While a banner season in the lumber industry was recently predicted, the present indications are that the cut will fall considerable short of the amount estimated, owing to the heavy snowfalls experienced recently in Northern Wisconsin.

The indications are that they will have to break camps within the next few weeks, as the warm weather will soften the snow and cause water enough to make it impossible for men to work, With the market still brisk, this shortage may mean a serious thing to the builders before next season’s cut is harvested.
