Let the Good Times Roll
Eureka, April 6, 1916 The annual log drive of the Eureka lumber company was started last week and is now on in full blast, the camps having all been organized, and logs are now coming through from the rear. The company is fortunate in securing plenty of help and water conditions are ideal with a prospect that there will be plenty of water during the season. Driving camps are strung along the river for a distance of over thirty miles and several hundred men are employed in the operations. The starting of the drive always means added prosperity for the people living in the neighborhood and especially the towns of Eureka, Fortine and Trego.
