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. Judge John K. Thompson , of Grand Island , was in the city a few days the first of the week looking after probate matters in County Court. Mr. and Mrs. W.
