Truthfully has it been said of
Judge Galloway, 'He has in more
than one instance
shown that he has
of his convictions in difficult posi

record for honesty and courage. '
He always does his duty as he

The damages of the recent fire
in this city are fast disappearing
in the new buildings going up
and the repairs of those damag

that showed the effects of the
fire have been put in better shape
than before with new fronts.

new plate glass and paint the
street puts on a better appearance.
Among the fronts that have
been renewed are N. Brown &

Reed Grocery. Burns Hotel and
others. These places are improv
ed in appearance.
The Levens block, is rising
very rapidly and with the hand
some pink stone makes one of
the most imposing structures in
the entire town. The stone cut
ters are doing some fine work on
this building and the rapidity
with which they are progressing
it will be ready for occupancy
within the time designated. The
fine weather we have been hav
ing the past month has been to
the advantage of the contractors
on the building.
The Fry office building is also
being placed in shape for tenants
rapidly and will be completed
soon. The post office changes
have been completed and is now
very convenient for the purpose.
In addition to this work there
is much improvement going on
in the residence districts, with
new houses and additions to
those already constructed. The
new addition to the Blott home
is quite well along and is going
to be one of the nice homes in
that part of town. Other im
provements in that section are
going on also that will make it
more attractive and desirable as
a residence section, one thing of
this character being a new side
walk built the entire length of
the lane leading to the river.
The lack of a walk has made it
very inconvenient to the resi
dents of that section during the
winter and spring months.
The Times-Herald is pleased to
note these improvements as it
shows progress upon the part of
the property owners and that
they are making homes as rapidly
