havo boon In to Inspect the
Council Put Mud Rakers to Work.
Tho heavy rains of tho past few
days put the principal stroots of
San Angolo iu a very bad condi
tion. At some crossings there
was no crossing. Slushy, thick
miro a half foot deop. grooted
dainty Blippers and coarso brogans
alike ovorywhoro. Monday morn
ing tho city council put a large
forco of lnborors tt work shovol
iug mud from tho crossings, and
later tho big grador and mules
scraped Ohadbourno streot to tho
gravel foundation, heaping tho
mud in the center. Following tho
scraper were men and wagons
literally 'wading" into tho mud.
Hauling olT this superfluous
miro is tho only feasible plan.
Leaving it upon tho stroots to dry
and then become a nuisance at 1
tho next rain, doesn't work liko
taking it away ontiroly.
