Tick ets on sale at the Paull Drug Store. To The Traveling Public. November 16th, 1916. You are urgently requested to use the entire road and not drive in the same track all the time as such a pro ceed u re will cause the road to rut, and even though it might be only for a small depth, water will run down in the ruts and cause the road to deteri orate. A rut is very hard to repair especially until it gets to be three or four inchestieep. The people should realize the fact that they are paying for the road themselves, fod should try tc preserve same because it is their property. E. Wiley, Bommissioner of Public Roads.
