'The replacing of the burned build

The matter of getting the plans
arranged has been somewhat delayed
owing to the settlement of tfee in

hoped will be definitely settled in a
short time and then enable Mr. War
ga to go ahead with the work.
It is expected to have a modern
two story structure erected on the
site of the building that was burned
early Sunday morning, and which
will be as near fire proof as possible
to make It.
Mr. Warga and Mr. Sattler. the
occupants of the burned store build
ing are busily engaged in cleaning
up the ruins and sorting out what is
possible to save of the stock of goods
that they carried but the greater
part of the stocks were losses and
what has been salvaged is more or
less affected by the fire and water
so that their loss will be quite heavy
even under the best of circumstanc
es. The stock of Mr. "Warga has been
placed in one of the store rooms of
the Hotel Wagner block while Mr.
Sattler has his stock of caskets that
were saved from the fire in the old
McDaniel building at the corner of
4th and Main streets and they will
remain in these locations until it i3
possible to get the new store read

require several monfhs at least.

Julius A. Pitz of the First District
and Win. Atchison of the Third
Retire From County Board.
From Thursday's Dally.
This morning the services of Jul
ius A Pitz of this city ami William
Atchison of Elm wood as members of
the board of county commissioners
terminated and these gentlemen will
enjoy a well deserved rest from their
long labors in the interests of the
people of the county.
Mr. Pitz in particular will appre
ciate the privilege of being once
more a private citizen as he has oc
cupied this office of commissioner for
the past eight years and it has been
during years when it was necessary
to bring out many programs of pro
gressive measures especially in re
garding the road work of the county
that involved many radical changes
from the methods of years gone by
and which is destined to give the
county in time a great system of
highways. Mr. Pitz was first elected
county commissioner in the fall of
1912 and has served continuously
since that time and was re-elected to
the office in and in completing
eight years of hard service.
Mr. Atchison has been an occu
pant of the office of the commissioner
for the past year, having been ap
pointed to that office at the time of
the resignation of Henry Miller ot
Alvo, and has during the months cf
his service been a very faithful public
servant and one devoted to the best
interests of the people of the coun
ty and it is with regret that his as
sociates part with him although his
successor. F. H. Gorder of Weeping
Water, brings to the county boa id
an experience in practical business j
life that will be found a great asset
in handling the countv affairs. (
The office of county commissioner
is one of the most important in the
county and one that is hard to till.
and the county has been fortunate
in having the services j such high
class men as tney nave nau ana in j Anna Heafev and is popular among a
the excellent gentlemen who willihost of fr;ends in this community,
constitute the coming board of com- she is a graduate of St. Bernard's

cupant is criticism and those who

receive words of commendation for

MENT VISIT CITY.
From FriOays Dally.
This morning A. S. Merrick, state
divisional engineer and F. M. Stuart,
assistant engineer, were in the city
talking over the good roads question
w'ith the board of county commis
sioners and arranging to prepare the
budget for the state aid highway
work in the county for the coming
year and to prepare the estimate to
be uc-ted upon by the state engineer
and the department of public works
in order thai the work for the year
can bo handled in a systematic man
ner. The representatives of the state de
partment and the county board spent
some time in the discussion of a res
olution covering work on twenty
miles of the "O" street road from
I'nion west to Elm wood and which
had been prepared for the approval
of the board of commissioners, re
questing that a portion of the funds
available be used on this project.
The county board was greatly in
terested in the matter and from the
expressions made by the members
were anxious to see that justice in
the good roads proposition was done
to every section of the county, in
cluding the full completion of the
road from Murray west through the
center of the county as well as open
ing up the road from Louisville to
riattsmouth and placing it in the
line of road work for the year to
make it a permanent maintained
highway that would rank with the
other roads of the county.
The resolution which had been
prepared was laid over until the next
session of the board of commission
ers on January 11th in order that
they might have more time for its
consideration and the general desire
seemed to be to include in the reso
lution application for the Louisville
road as well as that of the "O" street
precincts is not possessed of as good
a system of maintained highways as
is the southern portion of the coun
ty was pointed out, travelers thru
that section being able to reach
points by either the Murray-Mur-
dock road or that of the "O" street
road, which is generalH kept up in
the best shape possible.
The matter is one of importance
and the commissioners will exercise
their best judgment to see that all
sections of the county are given as
much advantage as possible of the
provisions of the state aid road laws
