This place is not only near the geo
graphical center of the o unty, but Is
also much nearer tho center of popula

from all directions are of tho best in
the county, and are roads over which
hefjvy loads can ba hauled at any
season of the year.

whole state. The resident of the
northern part of the county can reach
this town by roads which are shorter
and better than thoe leading to either
the present county seat or the would
be county seat down i n the corner.

the race next Juno it, will get the
support of almost every voter iu .the
