Why snould these other towns benefit
to a greater extent than Stewart by these
sales? Again comes the answer, because
we are not inoorporated. These figures
are almost an argument in themselves for
incorporation. When the profits are portioned out to the various communities it

chimney fires have already been  noticed.    These, '
