Hard work and dangerous. This river-boy Lyman Frugia, poles the heavy logs into the incline that takes them to the mill. It is not only hard work, but he is exposed to all kinds of weather, and is dangerous too. Said he is fourteen years old and has worked here several months. Gets $1.00 a day. Miller and Vidor Lumber Company. This was the only mill I found around Beaumont that employed boys - likely because they are located some distance from town. Location: Beaumont, Texas.
