At the meeting last night the town council authorized the mayor to have the cemetery fenced all round with a new fence, which includes the new part of the grounds. The addition will be laid off into streets and lanes, and lots will be sold to parties wishing them; the funds will be used to pay for the fencing and other improvement after which they will be used toward keeping the cemetery in good shape. This is an excellent move, and Mayor McCoy is deserving of praise for his liberality by furnishing free the necessary posts. All successful cemeteries that we have ever known worked on the plan of charging a fixed price for lots; thereby a revenue sufficient for the needs is derived and the family lots are undisturbed. Let us at least have neat city of the dead.
