A New Town
W. B. Agnew has been up the line this week, laying out a new town at Section 83, which has been christened Westboro.
It is on the south branch of Jump River, and as there is a large tract of pine tributary to it, a bright future is anticipated for the young bantling.
It is here that Duncan, Richie & Co. are putting up a large saw mill and shingle mill.
Preparations for the erection of several houses are already being made, including a hotel, which will be put up by W. F. Turner, now proprietor of the Turner House at end of track.
