intendents and Overseers.
In another column, County Com
missioner Dobey warns all highway
superintendents and overseers in his
Division to at once call out road
hands and begin work. In the pres
ent condition of our highways, small
and nice work ia/'detail would be al
most thrown away, but now is the
very time for certain preliminary
hard work and heavy ditching. There
fore Commissioner Dobey?s call "is
wise and opportune.
And uow is also the time for us to
say in a general way that our County
Commissioners need not be afraid to
spend time, labor and money on the
roads. The peopb will cheerfully
sanction outlay in that direction; for
our bad roads are an evil which they
feel seriously, and see the necessity
for correcting every day and hour.
Many steep grades which are now a
terror to farmers can be avoided by
slight deflections in thc present lines
of the roads; an i hundreds of holes
and gullies and rocks which will cost
a wheel apiece can be filled, removed,
rendered permanently sale, by wise
work and the avoidance of temporary
makeshifts and slovenly patching.
And as regards the roads near our
town, we might say to our merchants
that it is probably the most import
ant matter that can now receive their
attention. Good dirt roads are worth
more to us now than any railroad or
other improvement, for many dollars
at or near the edge of our trading
territory can be brought here by
smooth and easy thoroughfares.
Let the people think about this
important matter, talk-about it, stim
ulate the Commissioners to vigorous
action, and vigorously fid them.
