We believe this telegraph line is of great value to the farming comraunity and all concerned. It saves farmers inany trips to the city in busy seasons, enables them to cali a physïcian on a momentos notice when needed, and is a benefit in various other ways. We would be glad to see the line extended to Washtenaw county or a similar line constructed here, with headquarters at Aun Albor.
