into the old route af*a point west
where the highway returns to the
north of the track. Here the viaduct
will be built to eliminate the cross
ing. The change will be the means of
shortening the distance between Dy

mile, and at the same .time it will
eliminate the dangerous crossing at
the Tegeler farm where iuite a num
ber of accidents have occurred in re

The supervisors of Delaware coun
ty have let contracts tor the installa
tion of numerous permanent culverts
along the route of the.Hawkeye, thru

improved across the county, federal
aid having been secured.
Traffic over the Hawkeye, this year
is heavier than ever and is increasing
daily. Farmers are using trucks to
bring their stock and produce to mar
kets and good roads are becoming
more in demand each day.
Grading on the new stretch of road
will begin- within a few weeks. With
the permanent culverts in, the work
can be continued without delay. •.v
THE PLACE TO LITE.
(From The Mt Vernon Hawkeye.)
Its getting better to live in the
country and the smaller towns all the
time. The pace may not be so stren
uous and the excitement at such high
pitch, but the going is steady in the
right direction.' Down to brass tacks,
since the better class of country
towns have adopted paving and erect
ed modern theatre buildings for the
^motion film, there is little left for
the cities to offer. Paved roads will
do the same for the country. We look
-to see in a very near future, an en
tirely new general condition of drift
ing from country and town to city.
Each has its own place to fill, but
with modern improvement, invention
and enterprise aa^the force, the dis
tinction between the two that has
marked the past, grows constantly

Because of the odd interest date and
to avoid delay in the issuance of the
interest checks a coupon was at
tached to the Victory Notes for the
interest- from May 20 to December 15.
The interest for all succeeding periods
are paid, br check. So the Federal
Reserve Bank has called attention to
the fact of the odd interest period
coupon, which may not be understood
by the owners of Victory Notes. It
is possible for unscrupulous persons,
it was pointed oat, to cut off this
coupon and the bolder of the bond
jnight not discover the loss of the
first interest on his bond until he
bad received the checks for the ojther
"We think this warning is due the
public," said an official of the Fed
eral'Reserve. Bank. "The Treasury
Department found it, necessary Qfl
account of the odd interest period Jf
the Victory1 Motes to attach- a coupon
covering the interest' from ^ay 20
to December 15. Another reason for
this was to avoid delay in the is
suance of checks for the interest per
iods. All but the first interest Is
paid by checks. But as no other is
sues of the Liberty bonds have had
such a coupon attached, owners of
Victory Notes, might overlook it and
there is a chance if it being cut off
by unscrupulous persons, fchiis de
priving the rightful owner of the in
terest of the first period. This cou
pon, of course, is only attached to
registered bonds. Thape Is no way
of preventing payment on these cou
pons, so for that reason the bank
feels the public should be acquainted
with the facts."
