Dr. McCaskey began to drag a road Iti

work, but he carried the case to court
and had the copy of the proceedings
published and circulated all over the
township. This stimulated a great
deal of interest in dragged roads.
Dr. McCaskey became a candidate
for supervisor and was elected. Witty
the co operation of farmers in his lo
cality he began a systematic use of the
Voad drag on the roads under his juris'
diction". Farmers were employed to
drag the rpads contiguous to their 0W41
land, payment liehg made at the rate
of 40 cents per hour. -
The result of this effort is 'that East
