Description Stoddard Bros. Lumber Yard. "Established in McEwen about three years ago by George and Joseph Stoddard, it has been running at the full capacity of 30,000 feet per day. While other mills have been forced to reduce or temporarily shut down, the Stoddard mills have continued to increase their orders. This is largely due to the tact that they are thoroughly conversant with eastern methods, and have been enabled to capture trade where others have failed. A year ago last spring they moved their planer and yards to Baker City. The planer is as thoroughly equipped with modern machinery as is possible, including band saws. circular saws, rip saws, surface, matcher, sticker, trimmers, &c. They also have a printing machine for printing fruit boxes, as they do a large business in that line. Their trade is mostly of a wholesale nature, as they ship to Idaho, Utah, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and Nebraska. George Stoddard is a native of Utah, being born in Cache Valley in 1865. He received his education there, and remained at home until of age. He then spent three years in Wyoming, and later three in North Powder, Oregon. He has been in the saw mill business since he was a mere lad. In 888 he married Miss Ellen Izatt, of Logan Utah, and has four sons. Joseph Stoddard is also a native of Utah, and was born in 173. He received his education at Ogden and moving to Oregon became a partner of his brother in 1894. He is married to Miss Maggie Izatt, and has a daughter."
