The Times man made a run out to Greenwood, Clark County, one day last week over the "branch" and was surprised to find a beautiful little city nestling on a hill in the midst of a grand farming country. The city contains about 600 inhabitants, has four hotels, a bakery, churches, and a number first-class business houses, among the latter that of A. M. White, is considered the best. The bank of Greenwood is organized
under the state banking law, has elegant quarters and fixtures and plenty of deposits. The Gleaner, a five column quarto, gathers up all the local news and is doing a good business. The people were all doing their best to arrange for the soldiers reunion which is now being held in the city, by the Clark County Association.

On the way up the "branch," the first to attract our attention was a remark from Bert Griffin, "See those Holstein cattle" and later on, "there are some Aldermen cattle." At Spokeville, we found the mayor, J. C. Marsh busy with his extensive stave and lumber business and guessing on the nominee.

Further up, Loyal loomed up like a city of considerable proportions. Quite an extensive lumber, stave and heading business is done at Loyal. It is also located in a good hardwood and farming section. Greenwood being the terminal of the "branch" is just booming and expects to become quite an important point at no distant day.
