We are a nice bunch of people over

we do little very bad. We
have been awfully good lately and have
built a nice sidewalk from thcsteamboat
docks to the state line, so that we might
get over to the new town and do our
trading. Now there is an awful bad
piece cf ground from the end of our walk
to the walk on Washington avenue, and
we wish that you would put enough
lumber in the new town sock 9 to build
that walk. Be sure and bring it Christ
mas, so that we may have it right quick.
Leave it with Mr. Harris, of the Com
mercial Clnb. Old Town Kids.
