ing. When tti house was torn down,
each log was marked and they are
still in such good condition, after
73 years of service a3 a place of
abode for numerous families, that
they are goirg back into p'ace very
leady, to provide a perfect eiupliate
of the original building. When the

to the eaves and it is expected to be

conceived the idea and will stand as
a memorial t the olden days when

cabins and there were none of the
picscnt day conveniences.
