doing a splendid job. W. M.
Preston has returned from
Louisville. J. A. Oliver was in
Mt. Vernon Tuesday. We see
in the columns of the Signal a
letter from Mr. W. J. Sparks
and we note that he asked that a
pike be buili from Mt. Vernon to
Pine Hill. This is all right but
he stoped five miles too soon and
we had a talk with Judge Lewis
and he said it was certain that a
pike would be Built to Pine Hill
in the near future and eventually
to Livingston. We are not so
much interested in the pike as
we are in a bridge. Give us a
bridge across the river and we
will not name the pike. So you
will find us camping on your
trail until this is done. Miss
Nettie Rice has returned- from
J. P. E. Drummondsisin Knox

The Panama-Pacific International ex
position was first proposed by Mr. It.
D. Ilale, a merchant of Sap Francisco,
:n 1901. Mr. Hale wrote a letter to the

took Hko wildfire. At that time it was
anticipated that the canal would bo

set for the exposition. An organiza

Tho-reconstruction of San Francisco
Is one of the greatest miracles within
the history of American municipalities.
Five hundred nnd eight city block",
embracing the principal business and
residential portions of the city, wero

streets were covered in some places
with debris forty feet deep, yet today
a stranger to the city would never
know from its appearance that a fire
had occurred. -
The loss through the fire Is estimated
by insurance underwriters at 400,000.
