HisIoby o/ Green County. 
Brooklyn have dispelled the brightest of Albany's vis- 
ions, at least for a time; but they can not destroy her 
good water power, which is even now persuading 
Messrs. J. H. and E. F. Warren, and S. A. Pond to 
build a large woolen mill there; nor can they entirely 
destroy her hope of a railroad, the realization of which 
would, she thinks, restore to her all her old life and 
activity. 
At the present time Albany ranks first among the 
unincorporated villages of the county. In I876 the vil- 
lage lots in the town of Albany were appraised at 
$43,o65. Thoge of other towns followed in this order: 
Jefferson $30,270; New Glarus $20,495; Mount Pleas- 
ant $i8,oo6; Brooklyn $i6,oio; Exeter $8,573; Cadiz 
$3,285; while lots in Monroe and Brodhead were valued 
at $696,075, and $253,826.
