one authority the advance of pineC lands
in Michigan, during the past year even, is
thirty three per cent.  liu Wicinisin andi

has not been so great, but et: r-spiniidingly

gard to the lumber and tiiiidr lands of
Maine'. The advance there during th(
past ye-ir is ascribld largely to tihe-
Spragues, who nave purchltsed nearly all
the timber lands on  the Kennelec,    ii-
though the Boston fire has stinitilated the
confidence of luniberrmeu as to the future
high prices.
