December 15, 1888 Saturday  The DSS and A has issued the following:  "The DSS and A will buy, on and after December 1, 1888, hemlock railroad cross ties delivered on the line of the road, until further notice and will pay 16 [*cents] each."  Truly the South Shore must be getting hard up when they have the gall to ask honest labor to furnish hemlock timber, cut up into ties and pay a team $4 a day to deliver it, at such rates.  Why it's a disgrace to the company and a slur to the laboring man.  They didn't make wages at 22 [*cents] last year.  Wonder if the railroad expects the homesteaders to give away their stumpage?  Not much.
