Some much needed and long delayed street work was done this week on Buffalo Street, between Main and Arkansas streets. The two months of rain had cut it up terribly and the street commissioner began work as soon as the weather would permit. The drains are being laid with stone foundations which makes the work permanent and eliminates the mud. It is a pity the town is not able to lay all the streets and ditches in this manner.
