Buster Brown THE WASHINGTON ST ANDARD, OLYMPIA, WASH., FKIDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1917 MAY CONDEMN M'KENZIE LAND FOR ROAD AT YELK < s a> Owner Wants IYM> MIIIII for Right-of-Way \< riws Farm Construction of a new county road 'about a quarter of a mile long con necting the district east of Yelm i with that town so that the children of the ranchers may attend the con solidated school, was again asked at a hearing before the county commis sioners Wednesday afternoon by a delegation headed by James L. Mos raan. ! The petitioners told the commis sioners that the children either had to go via a five-mile roundabout route or down a railroad right-of way. to which the parents objected as being dangerous, or else to the school at Rainier. The requested road*would cross the J. A. McKenzie farm and Commissioner Sams point ed out that McKenzie wanted SBOO for the right-of-way, the construc tion would cost $350 more, the road district funds were low, and the road could not be built unless the right of-way could be obtained for a less sum. | He and the other commissioners appeared to favor the petition, and it was suggested that an appropria tion might be made from the general road and bridge fund, and condem nation proceedings instituted against McKenzie. Mossman was also in structed to have the residents of the district sign a petition, to be filed at a later meeting. At the Ray Theatre Next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday It has been suggested by transpor tatiota experts who are with the Food Admlnstration that, after the har vests are laid by, the farmer make an estimate of the fertiliser, seed, ma chinery and the like that he will need for the coming season and then place his order. This will eliminate the failure to receive supplies which resulted last spring on account of car Congestion and priority shipment. Between March 1 and July 15 of this year the railroads operating In the East and Middle West made a saving of 28,000,000 tons of coal per annum. From the farmer's standpoint a like saving may be effected in the coming months. All orders for sup plies should be places early. It is also advisable for several farmers In a community to club together in ordering so that each car may be loaded to its maximum capacity, and In this manner eliminate transpor tation waste. By acting on these suggestions supplies will arrive in season so that time, which is so precious during the spring rush, may be saved; and at the same time the crops will advantage of those things necessary to their suc cessful planting, tending and harvest ing, Cars should be loaded and un loaded promptly when placed on the siding. No stumbling blocks should be left In our path of preparation for a bumper crop in 1918.
