The board was beset "fora and aft," as an old settler used to say, at its meeting last Week, having LuVerne at one side on the grade question and Bancroft at the other on the doctor bill question. The latter got the right- of-way and occupied the most attention. Drs. Cutler and Walters presented big bills, and as our correspondent said lust week, the understanding was that the "fun would begin" if they were not allowed. The board laid them over till the adjourned meeting for further investigation. Dr. Cutler wants $156.10 for attendance and medicine for Stude Campbell's family. Dr. Walters wants $43 for attending Mrs. Joe Weston, $125 for an operation on Mrs. Weston and -visits, and $125 for an operation and visits on Ed. Colson. The surgical operations were cutting tumors from the neck. The total of the four bills is $449.10, and the reason the board feels inclined to cut them is that Dr. Walters put .in a bid for doctoring the poor of the north end of the county a year for $100, and then withdrew it, and that was the sum paid last year. Drl Kinney withdrew his bid of $200 for the south end and Dr. McCormack was given the job at that figure. AN ADJOURNED MEETING. The board will come together again June 25 to attend to unfinished business. TO HAVE ARTIFICIAL RAIN. A hydrant from the city water works was ordered in on the court yards, and Mat. will sprinkle the grass during the summer and get a hay crop whatever happens elsewhere. A diagonal sidewalk from the well to the southeast corner of the courtyard was also ordered. It is a good thing and will keep the people of! the lawn and allow all hands to get a drink without going a half block out of the way. COMMITTEE TO SETTLE. This year the county will settle with all the officers, treasurer^ auditor, sheriff, clerk, and superintendent. John. G. Smith and W. H. Nycum are the committee to examine the books. Heretofore the treasurer and auditor have been the ones to stand an investigation. A BIG DITCH. The board have the six-foot ditcher running down the channel of Four Mile creek from the line of Fenton and Lotts Creek townships to where the channel is a sufficient drain, about five miles in all. It drains a lot of the worst places on the roads the county has. ON ACCOUNT OF THE BANCROFT FIRE. The assessments of the men burned out up at Bancroft were reduced, John Duckmanton $75, A. Ward and Wm. Dletz $250 each, Campbell and Reynolds $300, and Nemmers Bros. $400. ANOTHER BRIDGE IN LUVERNE.
