company which has bt-en figuring on
huihling an electric line from this lo
cality west, with the other terminus
either Cedar Itapids of Iowa City, Ihe
line for which was surveyed as far as
Moscow by a party under William
Kimball. The Cedar Kapids line
seems the most in favor, although
Iowa City is professing 'itself willing
to do most anything to have the line
turn that way. All along the route
of the 35-mile survey to Moscow the
advance party met with an enthusi
astic reception, ami there is no doubt
of the road getting the glad hand

no trouble making arrangements for
coming into the tri-cities over the

things to be done yet lie fore it is
necessary to close a contract cover

Finding teachers for the country

in this part of the state, says a dis

last thirt yyears has so great difficult y

from any other cause. There are still
districts th.it are trying to get teach
