Kirksville and the Kentucky river
is progressing very slowly, ac
cording to County Judge W. K.
Price, who was at the scene of
operations today, ?he reporting
that the force of : workmen was
entirely too small, and that addi
tional wQrkmen,were in great de
mand. It. is expected that a num
ber of addifional men will-be put
to work 'with- Henry- 'Hamlin's
crew within a few days. This im
portant piece of work, it is hoped
by the officials, will. be finished in
a short time. . '
There are many other pieces of
county roads receiving attention
but progress is -hampered by a
lack of men, as" in this case.
County Road . Engineer : Baxter
is co-operating with the foremen
on the various jobs, ' adding all
available men, in'order to expedite
matters in the way of road build

paid by the county, the scarcity
of men for road work is more in
evidence every week.
