The Champion Fibre Company, manufacturers primarily of all kinds of chemical wood pulp, and also makers on a large scale of paper, container board, and tannin extract, operates the largest mill of its kind in the world. The daily consumption of raw material is 650 cords elf wood, and 70,000 board feet of saw-timber, which is equivalent to the yield of an average 70* acres of the section from which it draws its supplies. The location of the plant is such that it can tap a wide territory, heavily limbered and within reasonable freight haul.
