Tlie necessity of a liounng mill has
been forcing itself upon our people with
increasing weight. A great deal of grain
has been going out of tlie county for
milling purposes and carrying with it a
large amount of other business winch
should lie kept at home. A strong effort
has been made of late to secure a mill
and a man has been found in the east
part of tlie state who is looking for a lo
cation. A meeting of the business men was
held last Thursday evening and after a
discussion of the matter it was decided to
raise a bonus for any one who would
erect and operate a steam roller mill at
this place. Those present agreed to con
tribute and enough was assured so that
it was safe to make a proposition offer
ing one thousand dollars and word was
sent to that ell'ect. A subscription con
tract was drawn up and the greater part
of tlie money subscribed. But there is
still a little lacking so that any who are
willing to help tlie good cause along are
reuuesteU lo mane it kiiowu.

fit not only to the town but to all the
surrounding country, and it will greatly
assist in the efforts to get new people to
come here to locate. A mill can be
erected here at a much less cost than it
could lie where all the lumber had to be
shipped in and can be operated cheaply
because coal can be obtained at a low
rite These facts together with the fine
duality of wheat grown by the farmers
will certainly make a mill a paying in
nortant feature of prosperity will be
idded and will pave the way for other
'important improvements. Tlie enter
prise exhibited by the citizens of Ham
