He believes that the route up the railroad track will make a fine highway end will be of benfit to a great many more people than .the road as now planned. Just what action, if any, the com missioners will take regarding these complaints is problematical. Natur al!, they expected a certain amount Of objections, for it would be Impos sible to so lay out the roads that a would be suited, but it iwaa their in tention to designate such roads as would be of the most benefit to the people as a whole, and If it can be shown to their satisfaction that a mistake has been made in the mat ter we have no doubt but what the proposition will be reconsidered and readjusted.

Mr. HaU came to this country in the year 1875 and home- steaded the place now owned and oc cupied by hds Bon-1p4aw, Mr. Perry Nairn, several miles south of town. It was here that a family of ten children was reared, and where Mr. and Mrs. Hall resided until about ten years ago when they removed to Ok lahoma. Mr. Hal was a man who did hia full share toward the better ment and advancement of this com munity by uniting sound sense with strong convictions. His candid, out spoken temper eminently fitted him to mold the rude elements of pioneer society into form and consistency, and aid in raising a high standard of citizenship in our young and grow ing state. How much this community owes htm and such as he, it te im possible to estimate, though) It would be a grateful task to trace his in fluence through more direct channels, to hold him up in these days in his various characters of husband, father, neighbor and friend; to speak of the sons and daughters he has reared to perpetuuate his name and emulate hia virtues. But it comes not within the scope of this brief article to do so. Suffice It to say he lived nobry and died peacefully. The Stem reap er found him as a shock of wheat ful ly ripe for the harvest.
