Sllvls Pay Roll $36,000. The pay roll
for the -next pay day at the Rock Is
land shops at Silvia has been complet
ed and it totals $86,000, a decided in
crease over the last. The fact that
most of the employes will get the ben

the larger sum. The increase went
into effect the first of last March, but

RIVALRY OF STERLING
ROAD STIRS CLINTON
Stirred by the rivalry of the promot
ers of the auto road from Sterling to
the tri-clties Clinton county, Iowa,
proposes to do some heavy road build
ing this season in order to keep, if pos
sible, its place on the transcontinental
line. The road to be improved ex
tends through the county from Clinton
to DeWitt and already is partially sur
faced with gravel, it is now proposed
to use a great deal more gravel on it
and make it virtually a "hard" road.
At a conference between the county
supervisors and the Clinton Commer
cial club co-operation of all , parties
interested was asked. The Commer
cial club is ready to expend $5,000 in
cash, while farmers and residents of
villages along the way are expected
to contribute liberally in the shape of
teams and wagons for hauling the ma
terial. A tour across the county by
auto on this road will be made some
day next week and then plans of a
more definite nature will be made.
