Notes or transcript:  “This year is the first time in thirteen years that the railroad company has mowed the grass and weeds along the right-of-way. The apperance of the right-of-way is much improved, especially through town. Now if the company will prohibit the depositing on the right-of-way through town, of such things as discarded cats, obsolete dogs, choleraized pigs and William goat hay, the conditions and appearance will be still more improved.”
