News of American Hardwood Industry . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Merrill, Wis . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . The Stange Lumber Co. will close its camp No. 2 in about a week or ten days. It has established a new camp, No. 6, which will accommodate eighty men. Two camps are now in operation and four will be operating in early fall. The company's sawmill will close down in October for repairs. During the summer, one side of the sawmill was in operation. Pine has dropped $5 to $10 a thousand in various grades since early in the year, but decreased production has diminished stocks. This fall, 75 percent of its cut will be hardwood, so the supply of pine will be very much curtailed. The company's timber north of Star Lake is about evenly divided in hemlock, hardwood and pine. During last year its hardwood cut of logs bought from farmers was 2,000,000 feet
