alouo, together with uu additional poll
tax of 60c.
About 110,000 will bu raised as a re
suit of these taxes, llesldes th'u pro
gressive citizens ot this vicinity have
voluntarily subscribed between $10,000
aud $12,000 to bu used ou the roads
leading out of Hickman. If the cltl-
zeus of FulUm uunio up with a like
amount of mouey there will bo a grav
el road from Hickman to Fulton with
In twelve mouths, and by tho time
(his amount Is used up tho taxes
will have been collected und the work
can go right ahead.
The credit ot this progressive step
belongs to S. L. Dodds, It. A. Tyler,

the position that what they donate
for the roads now will come back to
them la the shape of better facilities
