Ottumwa, Iowa NIMOCKS URGES ROAD DRA66ING POSTMASTER WOULD HAVE OWN ERS OF DRAGS GET OUT ON ROADS AFTER RAIN. "I want to urge on every man who has a drag to get out on the road at the earliest opportunity, said Postmaster Frank NimoCks superintendent of the roads in Center township, when seen relative to dragging the road after the heavy rain of Saturday. "The owners of drags should get on the roads be fore they get too dry, and should drag them thoroughly. The road should be gone over as often as necessary to fllf all of the ruts and give good drainage." When ashed if there is not Work wasted on the roads, the well road booster said, "while it Would seem that a great deal of work has been wasted on account of the rains following the work so quickly, the fact is without the work the roads would now be out of commission. But good, thorough systematic work should follow this rain. "In some townships of this county, good systematic work Is being done under the drag law. In other townships there has been no superintendent ap pointed and the roads are being neglected. The trustees of Center township have allowed two mills in stead of one mill for the dragging hich they have a right to do under fie law. This should be urged on all r.f the trustees in the county. Outside of bridge and culvert work, dragging is the most important and at leasjt two ttjills should be spent in thiB work. The frequent rains have made it diffi cult to get people to drag the roads who have work to do in the fields, but it is hoped that every one will get time to drag after this rain before go ing into their other work. Let us get the roads in order. The rains won't be so frequent from now on." BATAVI A. 4 Mrs. W. I. Campbell visited Wednes day with Mr. and Mrs. Ray Campbell and little daughter of Ottumwa.
