     This week we continue with more selected data listed under place names in the 9(?) June 1917 (Vol. 22, No. 23) issue of The Haskell Free Press, published in Haskell, TX. Like the date, a few spots on this particular copy of the page are difficult to read. (Surnames are capitalized for emphasis; researchers will notice surnames or given names may have different spellings, some due to typographical errors. For clarity, some punctuation and capitalization of place names have been added.)
