TIMBER GETTING IN NOllTII CARO
Few persons are probably aware of
the quantities of pine timber that is annu
ally taken from the forest in the lower
portion ol the State and sent to foreign
and home markets either in sieizis-or al
ter being sawed into lumber. Besides
the numerous steam and water mills that
are constantly fed by large rafts rough
timber from our piney woods, there are
individuals and companies which make
it a regular business to get out timber and
carry it to more distant markets. As an
instance. Ihe firm of Messrs. Tat urn &
Hubbard from Virginia, have been engag
ed in timber getting for more than 20
years. Their establishment is at present
located on Pnntego Creek, in Beaufort
County. They supply the Navy Y'Srd at
Norfolk with timber for. Ship building.
