A series of fineetings have been held in Winslow beginning Saturday night by patrons of the Pike County Telephone Company. The company served If the board of county commissioners have their way, Petersburg will have a pretty nice memorial building. The only thing in the way now of getting $20,000 out of the county treasury for the erection of a memorial building for Petersburg is the county council appopriating the money. The commissioners at a special meeting Saturday passed a resolution ordering the erection of a memozHal building in Petersburg and naming €he trustees for the building. Dr. Ben G. Ornbaun, James S. ^oonshot and John K. Chappell were named as trustees. The county Auditor was ordered to place the $20,000 they propose to donate toward the erection of the building in thf ap-Itfopriation budget 'and the county council will be called upon to appropti-ate the money for the ereetidn of the bttildingé After it is erected the lioard proposes that the county maintain it. 'This mesms. while nothing was said in| the ¿he order at tb¿ Saturday meeting, that tlv» buildinff will be erected on the present court bouse grounds and be llilliBiiilliiiiil by the county* This will be a nice memonal building for Petersburg.

The notice to the' patons contnned the information that “all free service from one exchange to another in the county will be abandoned and a toll charge of 10c on each message will be charged.’’ A hurried call was sent out and several hundred people*met in Winslow Saturday night to bold a meeting regard ing the mbtter. Dr George B. DeTar was elected to preside over the meeting and Carl Klusmeier made secretary. A committee was appointed to confer with the company which reported at a meeting held Monday night. Tbia committee reported that the company signified a'willingness to take off the toll charge but that the rates as outlined would bave to stand. Another committee was appointed to confer with tbe company Tuesday regarding a schedule of rates. To this committee no satisfaction was given. The patrons of the company claim that they have had no service and are not 'willing to pay an increased charge until tbe service is made to correspond with the charge. Patrona threaten to order phones out and organize a new company. A , numioer , of committees bava been appointiid to go into tbe matter.. These will ieport|,at a meeting to be held at the A jlxlome ia Winslow next Monday evening. Patrona are very much worked up over tbe heavy increase without ilmprovinff tfae-aer-viee.- The compaiq^ pvemiaec that it will rebuild the Winkieiw exetenife and Winslow citizens who are not using the electricity will find this a good time to install it as the $7.50 service charge that was put on during the war has been removed. Unless your home is too far from the transformers there is no charge for the connection. During the war the charge for connection was made but was removed a few days ago. Mr. Elmer Wilhelm can tell you whether there would be any charge at all at your home. There ia no convenience that equals electricity in the home. Winslow is extremel.v fortunate in being able to have a twenty-four hour current and it should be well patronized. Now is the time to wire your home. - A r«color dinner was home of Rome Richardson and wife Sunday in honor of Fioyd Miller and wife of Missouri. A large dinner waa spread in the yard.

All departed for home late in the evening after a very pleasant day spent together.    * give tbe aervi claim that tb« •ervice eboukl time. bat oatppna tha ifliptéafd m We had the pleasure last week of a visit to Turkey Run, tbe state park purchased only a few years ago by the state. ^ The place comprises 288 acres and was owned by a hermit, Jqhn. Lusk. At his death an effort waa made to get the state to buy it and preserve it for its natural-bbeauty and virgin woods but without slaccess until a Crawfordsville man bought it for the timber.. Later he turned the place over to the state for the same money he paid for it. It is Indiana as ahe was originally, the forest never having been touched. There is not to exceed fi'fteen'acres of the land that has ever been cleared, tbe balance being purely virgin Indiana woods. Sugar Creek runs through the place which affords some of as wonderful scenery as one cares to see, Tbe place is being improved now, a fine brick hotel having just been completed with all modern conveniences attacbebd to it. A log bouse from the old houses on the farm has been erected that exactly imitates the original Indiana log houses. Every Indiana citizen sbquld see this wonderful state park. Mr. R. P. Luke is the 8ux>erintendent of the place and be makes every effort to show visitors about. Daring our trip ws also visited The Shades. Turkey Run is in Parke county but the Shades is in Montgom* ery. This is a privatóty owned resort of natural beauty that exceeds ^rkey Run. It it <u>t so large but It a wonder-ful place for one to'visit who has that tired feeling and a desire to get back to nature. During the few days we were out we found ideal improved roade in Vigo, Vermillion, Parke, Fooaiatir and Montgomery counties.
