History of Green County.                245, 
eighty-two.    J. W. Haseltine acted as clerk of the, 
meeting and made the first returns to the county. The 
county clerk hesitated about receiving the returns be- 
cause the clerk elected for the year had' not brought 
them, but finally took them because they were "in better 
shape than those from     half the towns."     At a town 
meeting held at Attica, April 7, I874, it was found that 
twenty-three men were present who had voted at the 
first meeting twenty-five years before. By order of the 
meeting the clerk recorded their names as follows:
