We have a very large county, covering an area of nearly 800 square miles, with Aberdeen, the county seat, located nearly ii the center.

Wholesale merchants are also using these highways to transport in. heavy truckloadg their goods from their city warehouses to-towns - and vil lages throughout this territory. A 2-horse team can now deliver more tonnage in a day than six teams used to deliver over former roads, in the same length of time.

It appeals to j local self-government, and promotes rival ry among the various road districts of the county, as to the best and most durable roads to be construct ed.
