The Mound City Journal, in speaking
of the road leading from Cairo to Mound
City says: "Thewutcr Is now off the
Cairo and Mound City wngon road, nnd
It is safe to calculate tliat It will not be
overflowed again tor six months, and it
may be free from such lutcrtuptton for a
much longer period. This being the
case, all interested hi securing a good
drive between tho two places should com
bine to put the road in proper order. But
little work is required, the road being in
good order, we believe, this side of Cache
bridge. The other side there is some
drift to remove nnd one or two ditches
to bridge. When the road Is in order,
much travel and trade will be attracted
to Cairo that has been unknown to that
locality for a lopg period."
