The figure representing this item, however, -was $4.660,00, and llgurlng this amount as the probable amount when tho bid for this work shall bo lot, the total amount of the contracts will bo $81,468.04. A delay in the work may be occa sioned by reason of tho fact that cer tain rights-o?-way toHhe water sup ply, which the Commissioners anti cipated no trouble In obtaining, will probably hi ve to he obtained through condemnation proceedings. It ls hoped, however, that this unforeseen obstacle will not interfere with com pletion of tho entire plant within tho specilled time-six months. KEOWEE SCROLL HAS CLOSED.
