Our boys wanted to interest Watertown in adopting what is known as the Michaels road instead of the one a mile west, which appears to have been decided upon by one or more gentlemen of the county seat. Our committee had assurances of sup port from many of the Watertown autoraobilists to have the Michaels road adopted but the support was not forthcoming at the time it was wanted. Not one outside of Watertown has been invited or consulted as to the laying out of the twenty-four miles of road through the county, but it is not improbable that this feature will be overlooked when men and teams are wanted to do the actual work of getting the road in shape. .Many ut the prominent farmers at the north end of the county are not pleased over the prospect and the attempt of one cr two individuals to monopolize the whole thing. In all fairness the peo ple of the county should be called to gether and officially designate the road which they are going to be asked to build without compensation.
