After praying and petitioning for
over 40 years for a brldgo, the
prayer of the citizens of Palmyra

Witli the railroad on one side and
a high river bank on tho other it
became a dangerous place to drive,
and many merchants were compelled
to refuse to deliver goods to resi
dents on tho West side of the river,
as it was impossible to get to their
homes except by tills roadway.
About ten years ago tho court ap
pointed viewers, who reported in
favor of a bridge to accommodate
tho residents at tills point. The fol
lowing grand Jury also reported
favorable. Tho court alilrmed the
grand Jury's report, but the commis

hoad presented the society by Miss

of beautifying Its cemeteries than

made In self-interest, as Mr. Lutes
could not take up any more work In
the East than he has, as it lias been
a custom to confine his work to the
Mldtllo West. However, Mr. Lutes
would gladly give his reasons, as to
suggestions and Ideas, without any
Iti regard to the public parks, ho
deemed it advisable not to uso so
much muianty in the trimming of
trees and public walks. The advisa
bility of a public playground was
