Electric Power Coming.
The Farcbr Forum published
this interesting item last week:
J. D. Pitt, of Frankford, was
here first of the week visiting his
nephew, W. 0. Hostetter. Mr.
Pitt is interested in the proposi
tion to furnish power and light to
the towns along the Alton from
the water power plant now being
constructed at Keokuk. The pow
er can be transmitted across the
country from Hannibal to Lad
douia. Farber, Vundalia and mi tn
Louisiana at a very small cost. If
the plana materialize farm houses
can be lighted with electricity
ami small towns may enjoy the
luxury of electric light and elcc
t ric power.
