. Origin of Aunt Flat
The proposal to change the route VI
Aunt Flat road' has caused num. re
marks about the queer name, and some
have said it should be spelled Ant Hut.
Surveyor A. II. Rudd says Aunt is
right and backs it up with the following
account of the origin of the name.
East of the flat' is a hill the outline of
which resembles the bust of a woman. It
used to be called Maiden Hill, and later
in joke it was nicknamed Aunt Maryf
In course of time the flat from which
Aunt Mary" was viewed become
known locally as Aunt flat.

1) per cent, while no grade on the pro
posed route will, be over 8 per cent.-
It is supposed Mr. Bookoot will vigor
