Your petitioners show that there is

nor have your petitioners or their gran

pensation for their land or any part
lying on cr near said section line, nor
lias said section line ever been traveled
by the public so as to give the public
any right to travel said section line,
nor has Webster county through its
ollicers ever exercised any control over
same as a public road, therefore your
petitioner pray that said notice may
be withdrawn and your petitioner be
not required to remove their fences or
