Staves Await Transport in 1909

(09/25/2001)

Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 12/14/1909.

Bud Johnson, the genial superintendent of the Withers and Vandevender stave yard below town was in to see us Saturday.  He says there are now over a million staves in the yard, besides several hundred thousand feet of lumber.  Bill Stump will move these out as soon as possible after the first water.
