It includes tho elevator, lumber yard, coal sheds,. office, scales dud everything. 'The consideration, aside from tho lumber which is to bo in voiced at cost, is '$4,600. Possession is given tho 15th of this month. The sale inay be accounted for on the grounds that there is not room for three lumber yards and a desire cm the part of McDonald & Nafus to got'hold of additional business. They will occupy the Wightman, Richards & Co's old stand and will move all theii lumber down there. J. R. Wightman also disposes of his fine property to E. J. Murtagh for §3,000.
