During the week the Sail Lako &
I'lnli Railroad company exercised Its
option on tho Flrmago property on
tho south side of Main street and
will use It for depot purposes, thus
settling definitely tho location of the
Interurban station.
Thu property consists of an eight
rod frontage, with n depth of twenty
rods, which gives amplo room for all
necessary purposes. It is not tho In
tention to build u station nt present,
but the company will uso the Dunkley
place In tho Hank building tempor

one will have to bo erected.
