It per tains to a very perslsteut rumor which has leen repeatedly heard In these parts, that the Lower Valley Is about to be discontim'KD A HOL ISM FI. And this on the ground that it is In the way In getting to and from the I'pper Valley. You would confer a very great personal favor to the writer If you would ad vise if this rumor has foundation In fact, and. If It has, to use your best efforts to preclude any such unfortu nate consummation. For though I appreciate that the accomplishment of such a plan would very greatly In crease our convenience In getting to and from Hood Klver, however, I am sure that we would all more than willingly sacrifice any such con venience on consideration of the evil which such a drastic measure would work to many good friends In the Lower Valley.
