More Money Than Was Needed.
In another column will be found a statement of the receipts and disbursements of the fund raised to cover the expense of replacing that part of the river bridge that fell just after the high waters subsided. By reading this statement it will be seen that only 61 per cent of the amount subscribed was used and the remaining 39 per cent is being turned back to the subscribers.

There are several who donated work whose names do not appear on the list. These omitted because it is impossible to tell just how much time was spent by each individual, and it is possible the names of some might be omitted thereby leaving room for hard feelings.
