RESOLUTIONS OF RESPECT At a meeting of the citizens of Monterey in mass meeting assem? bled for the purpose of adopting resolutions in memory of Mr Er? nest H McClintic whose death on February 25, 1908 is a shock to us all the following tribute of respect embodies the sentiments of his friends and associates. While we recognize in hi? death the Hand of God and humbly submit to His will, we can not refrain from ex pressing our tender sympathy for those who knew him best, his mother and relatives, in their sor? row over tbe loss of one who has stood among us as a respected citi? zen, a man of many good qualities and a lawyer of ability recognized as such by the citizens of the en tire county. In his death our coun? ty has lost a useful citizen, the pro? fession has lost a strong advocate and Monterey has lost a man of whom she has been justly proud. Therefore be it resolved, First; That we submit to his death as the act of One who does all things well and commend his sorrowing relatives and triends to Him whose mercy endureth for? ever and Second; That these resolutions be published in the Highland Re? corder and in the Bath Enterprise, that they be copied in the minutes of the council of the town of Mon? terey and that a copy be sent to hi* mother and her relatives.

Respectfully, Mre?S A Hansel Supervisors.' Meeting Ort Monday, Match 2nd* Was a regular meeting4ay of the Board of Supervisors, and it met. Much of the dav.was taken up in discussing wjjyi the prospective Superintendent of the Poor, L. B. Waybright, the prosy but very im? portant subject of how the Parish farm should be conducted, when along toward the last as the viUl subject of renumeration to the Su? perintendent and the keeper of the poor came up" Supt. Waybrignt failed to stand pat. The Board thought that in as much as the Parish farm was in a better condi? tion and therefore more profitable to it.i manipulator than it ever had been, and that its burden of pau? pers was light, there being only four at the farm, that it should be a source of revenue to the county over and above the keeping of the county's poor, but Mr Waybright thought thu*, in addition to the use of the farm he should have $50.00 in cash from the couuty per year. So that's the way the matter stands ?open. The Graham?Bradshaw private road matter came up for hearing, but owing to technicalities in the report, was recommitted to the same commission with the cxcep tion of C S Peterson, Surveyor J J Hiner being substituted in his stead. * Accounts to the amount of $69.32 for shoveling snow on the S. & P. road, were allowed, and it was presented to the Board that vet there was not ? wagon trail open to the state lin?, there were a few places yet needed some scutch? ing off. The Board is very much inclined to fitay hy the road till the way is clear and have directed that these little irregularties in the shape of an 8 foot drift or so, be moved. But while struggling with the drifts of the Alleghanies the Board was hit in the "solar plexus" with a double-barrel bridge propo? sition, and the Board had to stop a bit to get its wind. Two enthusias tic delegations appeared as if by magic one wanting an iron bridge at Stony Run, gallently led by A. G McGuffip, Propr. Bolar Sprng?, and the other wanted equally bad n bridge at Corbett's ford. This del egation was represented br attor ney J M Colaw. and conies befon the Board with a large petition ant a private subscription of $400.00 Whether the Board will built either one of these bridges or both or if ono which one, is yet to h decided and the Board has though it best to take a daY off to receiy more light on the-knotty problem and the day it has set upon is Sat turd*y, March 14th, 1908, D.
