the postal service, in which he has served for more than twent.v years.
Mr. Higgins disposed of the plant about 1881 to Arthur G. Randall
(later county commissioner of schools), and Thomas P. Robinson, who
is now publisher of the Union City Register, weekly. The plant was
operated by them until 1885, when they removed to Union city, where
they pulilislied four newspapers, namely the Cnion Cifij Luceil, Tekonsha
News, Biirlinijton Echo and Shencejoel Press. A printer wast then kept
at both Tekonsha and Slierwood, to gather news and set the t.vpe, which
was then locked in a wooden case and carried to Union city every press
day. Early in the nineties these publications were leased to Justin A.
Harsh, but a destructive fire soon occurred, which seriously crippled the

plant. Finding it impraetiL-al to continue all of the publications. Jlr.
Harsh moved the plant back to Tekonsha, and thereafter published only
the News and the Burlington Echo. In 1897 he was appointed post-
master, which position he held for twelve years before removing to his
present home in Deary, Idaho. Mr. Randall resumed control of the
paper on Mr. Harsh 's appointment to the postmastership, later leasing
it to his son, Fred. A. Randall, now of Detroit, who was associated for
a time with Claude Phelps, later of Three Rivers, in its management. In
May, 1905, Mr. Harsh bought the paper of the heirs of A. G. Randall,
and for nearly two years it was operated under lease by Ben F. McIMillen,
one of the present proprietors. In April, 1907, it pased into the hands
of B. F. and Lillian C. JMcMillen, who have since published it. Mr.
McMillen was also appointed postmaster, .January 15, 1909. The paper
has a circulation of 700, and enjoys an excellent job and advertising
patronage, which seems to become better with each succeeding year.
Circulating, as it does, in an unusually thrifty and populous farming
community, it is recognized as a power and influence in its own par-
ticular field.
