that Livingston is by no means a dead burg as was predicted that she would be when the railroad shops were removed to Corbin fewyears ago In fact Livingston impresses us as being a very live little town and in no danger of dropping down either in point of population or in the matter of business It is surprising to tind so many active con cerns engaged in trade in a mountain town of this size in times of depression as at present With her stores saw mills lumber yards coal minesand other enterprises located on a river and at a railroad junction there is no resson whv Livingston should not continue to grow There is not a village or town in the mountains with be Her streets and sidewalks and her hotels churches and schools ap pear to be in a prosperous condition She needs electric lights and it seems that a banking institution and a nine months graded school ought to be maintained easily enough Her secret organizations are in good growing condition and the citizens of the town seem to
