H-A- Summit Editor Says "At last" At last the long hoped for road i from Summit east thru the hills is to be a reality. This week surveyors and cement men arrived and began work and three crews of graders are evpect- i cd in a few days. The grading firm which has the contract is said to be one of the best in the northwest and it is said to be their infection to finish the project before winter. This pro ject begins at the Grant county line and runs east to the Yellowstone trail to a point about 2 miles east of Mar vin. This stretch of road is nearly all in the hills and ever since the ad vent of the automobile and the es tablishment of the Trail it has been the worst stretch between the Twin Cities and Aberdeen. The improve ment of this road will give the west part of Grant county a decent road to their county seat, a thing they have long needed. Tt is to be hoped a con tract will soon be let from the east end oi this project to Milbank. When this stretch is built we believe there will be a continuous state highw i\ from the state line to AberdMR«*« Summit Independent. —H-A At The Churches EVANGELICAL ASSOCIATION Preaching Service Saturday—8 Q0 p. m. vice.
