Bolivar Breeze, July 5, 1906


         30 Cars of Bark 


First Hemlock Shipped From  Bolivar in Many Years.


 Comes From the Pike Lands.


    Thirty cars of hemlock bark are being loaded in the Shawmut yards in Bolivar, the first bark shipped from Bolivar in a good many years. The bark comes from the Pike lands in Alma, where the timber was purchased last year by Elliott & Henry.  This firm has a large mill in the Hog Brook woods, cutting hemlock and sap pine.

    The bark is shipped to a tannery at Olean and about half a dozen teams are hauling it to Bolivar. The distance is so long that the teams make only one trip a day. The timber is large and the bark of fine quality. Elliott & Henry will cut several million feet of timber from the tract.
