Lyle and Riceville are about the only towns in this part of the State that are enjoying booms at present. Town lots in both places are said to command fancy prices- that is to say fancy prices are being asked for them. Riceville will doubtless develop, during the next two years into a country town of from three hundred to four hundred inhabitants. Lyle is a sort of an unknown quantity. It is hard matter to form an estimate on how many new saloons will be opened in the old slough during the coming summer.
