CHANGES TO BE MADE
IN TWO MAIL ROUTES
Del Ash , the mail carrier ou
the Round Valley route , will
hereafter come back through
Swiss Valley and Senate Valley
instead of coming straight to
Broken Bow from Elton. This
will add about thirty more mail
boxes on his route , making a to
tal of eighty families getting
mail delivered by him.
Postmaster Haumout is in re
ceipt of a communication from
the postoflicc department with
reference to the road travel.d by
Henry Clouse on the Georgetown
route. The department asks for
a plot of the route and for other
information concerning it. A
petition is being circulated by
some of the patrons of the route
to get a public road from the.
Buckeye Ranch to the George
town postoffice , and it is quite
probable that nothing will be
done by the department at Wash-
ington until the petition for the
road is accepted or rejected.
The petition will probably be up
for consideration at thj coming
session of the County Board.
