NEW BRIDGE~~The Commissioners of Highways of this town, are building a new wooden bridge across the mill race on State Street near the residence of E. J. Farnum.  The street near the bridge is to be straightened and widened, and the bridge is to be double the width of the old one, with a foot walk on the south side.  The bridge will be completed next week.  This is an improvement that has long been needed, and the Commissioners are entitled to a vote of thanks.
