Talks and Tales free pdf Excerpt from Talks and Tales I shall in this article attempt to give a description of the village of St. George and the country surrounding it. The town itself is about fourteen miles from Eastport, Maine. Eastport however must be reached by water. The village is situated on the Maguagadavic river about four miles from its mouth. The river empties into Passamaquaddy Bay, or St. Andrews Bay, as the people who dwell along its shore call it. At St. George there is a fall in the river of about fifty feet. The chief industries of the village are granite polishing and milling. At present there are several quarries in operation within a mile or two of the village. There are three granite sheds running where the granite is polished. Granite of rather an excellent quality is produced from these quarries. At present there is only one saw mill in operation. The country all through New Brunswick like that in Maine is covered with dense forests except where the hand of man has cleared it away. Owing to the timidity of the people in speculation lumbering interests are not carried on as successfully as they were formerly. During the Civil War in the United States lumbering was at its height in St. George. The village being so near the American line it furnished a favorite rendezvous for skedaddlers.

Several attempts have been made to establish a pulp mill in the village but thus far they have proven fruitless. Every time the matter is discussed, disputes arise in connection with the rights of water power. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
