their intention of making their

will be of benefit to those who

they shall hay.eliad time to dry

must bo obeyed, and under our
present system of road building
is the only way to protect the
roads from being cut axle deep
in places by the hauling of logs
and other heavy materials. The

one man who is paying his levy.
Then the conuumor who bus t"

What we need is a regular

enough money spent on the roads
of Knox County in the past to
have piked it in its entirety,
and yet with a few exceptions
our roads are tho same as years

this money now all in a Inmp

twenty years and have perman

only way to do this and we hope

have the opportunity of voting
upon this same issue just as they
