"The territory it is proposed to take in will give the new city a pop ulation of 3.000 which is a very tidy population to start v 1th. "We heartily congratulate our neighbors. They are making no mis take.. Even now they will reap bene fits that will fully offset the expense. But with au eye to the future, the move Is a wise one, for we believe there is a prosperous future ahead for East Jordan, ly reason of the magnif icent area of country that surrounds it, and Its present and prospective railroad facilites, and advantages of navigation. "The writer of this was on the spot where East Jordan now stands in bf fore there was a hulidlng of any sort.'
