among the weekly papers of the county
for the pie that Is annually dispensed
when the board comes to deidgnato tho
papern that arc to publish tho board pro

son that about all of the papers In the
county were officially designated, the
court decisions having sustained tho con
tention that In a county such as Potta
wattamie with two county seats, tho limi
tation of the pie to thrco papers did not
go. The board designated five of the
county publications as official organs.

been most satisfactory.
