Junkins of Ashland, chief fire warden for the Aroostook and Big Machias River territory, writes the department as follows: 'The improvements made during the past year include the clearing of the trees off Norway Bluff, with the result that one can see the surrounding country without being obliged to go on the tower. The telephone line at Monsungan Lake has been shifted from the lake shore to the tote road so that it would not get down to the water. The telephone ought to be placed next year on the steel tower on Norway Bluff and a telephone laid from Ashland to Machais Lake." (Daily Kennebec Journal)
