Pauper Practice Let
The commissioners have let the pauper practice for the coming year in Commissioner Districts 2 and 3 as follows:
District 2—Drs. Coffman and Marner for $125. This district includes the following townships: Lost Springs, Clear Creek, Clark, Centre, Fairplay, Doyle and Grant, and also the practice at the jail.
District 3—To Drs. Johnson and Mayer of Peabody for $140. This district includes the Poor Farm and townships of Liberty, West Branch, Catlin, Peabody, Summit, and Milton.
The County Commissioners spent several days this week making their annual checking-up of the County Treasurer’s office. Every cent accounted for and all the books at a balance.
All the telephone poles on the “White Pole Road” have been given a belt of white since the Winkley Good Roads Social and the fellows interested in that project are going at it as though they meant business. The road is the one north from Peabody to the Canada corner and east from there to Marion and west to Hillsboro. The promoters hope to make this the main traveled road between Peabody, Marion, and Hillsboro. And, there is just one way to beat this kind of a movement and that is to get busy and get a better road. It is a friendly sort of rivalry and is a kind of rivalry that helps everybody. It is not possible to do too much to improve the roads.
Don’t forget to see the Suit and Cloak man at The Grand Saturday, October 21.
