George Bruce, Court House janitor, in view of the fact that he had been at a great deal of extra expense and labor in cleaning the Court House and other work by reason of the late flood, is given the sum of $100 for extra services. “Dick” performed considerable meritorious service during the time mentioned, and was undoubtably entitled to some recognition for the same, and the action of the Board in the matter is commendable. “Dick” was somewhat surprised when the sum was presented to him, as he was not expecting anything of the kind.
