We received a copy of the Killings

and proves that Mrs. Kohrs is sure

feel interested in its success, and
ladly note its blighter columns and

it is no longer edited by a crusty old

enable counties and townships to carry
on these improvements. In other in
stances similar legislation is being advo
cated. Missouri, which state has given to the
world the greatest good road advocate
