The heirs of the late Wm. Myers, Sr., met a few days ago and agreed upon a division of the property of the estate. They estimated the property to be worth $18,500, consisting principally of lands in this township. Of the five shares, George, Douglas and William Myers take theirs in farm lands, Mrs. Thos. E. Gorton gets the town property and a tract of land, and Cell Harvey's daughters get theirs in cash. The deeds have not passed yet, but the settlement has been agreed upon and will be consummated, no doubt, upon the basis named. And by the way it is a very sensible and inexpensive way of settling the estate.
