Lincoln Township
Lincoln is Township 97, Range 45, and the north half of 96, 45, The Rock Valley crosses the extreme northwestern corner, while Butt Oak creek drains the northern, and the heads of several streams running to the Sioux the southern. It must not be supposed however that there is any marsh or wet land in Lincoln any ore that other portions of our county. Lincoln has 5 schoolhouses equaling any in the county in structures and equipment. Regular religious services are held in most or all of them in addition to schools. The former locust raids were severe on Lincoln, but last season and particularly this spring new life and hope seem to have beer aroused and farms are being vigorously improved. Athol and Maybell are the post offices. Much good land and a few improved farms, may yet be had at reasonable figures.
