A ROAD TO TIE BAYOU . th
MACON HILLS. wi
BAuF.R.D-DEMOCRAT :-There is a an
matter of public interest to the town gih
and parish which I had hoped some an
of you papers would take up, a mat- ca
typr,Wbich I consider now paramount hbl
to any other as concerns our mate
rial development. I refer to a GOOD Pr
[ULT nOAI, to the Bayou Macon Hills.
The writer is reliably informed by
one of the police jurors of West ref
Carroll that they are anxious for a ufi
road to Lake Providence and that de
they, would join with us in building de
a bridge across Bayou Macon and be
build and rnaintain a road. Lake it
Providence is the nearest and best mof
market for our West Carroll friends, on
and now that we are soon to have a ea
railrbad, this will be their nearest R. an
R. depot.. wi
Wit a good road to West Carroll th
we would get 90 per cent. of the pr
trade fror that parish and ship all to
of its cotton. The railroad touching pi
the rije'yhere makes this a compet
ing. point; whereas we have been gi
paying local river rates we will now nE
get through rates-a difference of fa
shbout 33 1.3 per cent. in freight as 51
compared to what we are now pay- Ic
ing. This item alone will cause SI
West Carroll merchants to have their
goods shipped here. Again-here ce
is all our back country, through of
which this road will pass, is being th
rapidly reclaimed, and it will be as
only a question of a few years when.
this road question will co
them. It doeeswt Tiae A et to
tell us that this back country is the
coming country. It is now being g
rapidly cleared up and rehabitated.
Good roads do more for a country
than any other agency. By fall we in
will have a railroad, oil mill, ice to
factory, another bank and perhaps w
other industries. Now we want good di
roads for people who want to buy te
our goods to come to us. We want
good roads throughout the parish,
especially to the Bayou Macon hills. at
Suppose, to get this matter in er
shape, we begin here in Lake Provi- p,
dence and get our town council to at
start the ball, then go to our police di
Jury and ask them for help. All th
these gentlemen are broad gauged SL
lilberal minded men, and let us and s
the town council and the police jury m
and West Carroll and our mgrdhants at
come together and say that we have gi
got to have a good dirt road to bi
the Bayou Macon hills-and we
will get it. fu

The game of ball between the Lake tl

the home team. Providence outplayed c
the visitors all around. They had the
