Not a single county in West Virginia J has its road matters to as good shape j as Marios, it developed this morning at a meeting of the county court. Marion has retained at home the bonds which the stato purchased and is able to meet this live per cent, interest cu a similar income on the bonds themselves, which are taken as an investment by certain districts of the county. The first road bond issue of the county was made by Mannington and Fairmont districts. Mannington had one for ?300,000 and Fairmont ?500,000. By the levy of taxes a singing fund was created to pay the interest and retire the bands at maturity. At the end of the fiscal year, June. 1917. Mannington district had ?43,550.36 in its sinking fund while Fairmont district with its two bond issues at variQUs times had accumulated a sinking fund; of ?63,365.33 and $7,563.10. respectively. or a total sinking fund of $70,923.43.

The amount of bonds issued were as follows: Lincoln, $650,000; Paw Paw. $330,000; Grant, $130X100?a total of $1,175,000. These were sold to the state .ot West Virginia with the understanding that if the county court desired to invest the sinking funds ot Mannington and Fairmont districts they could purchase a part of the bonds as an investment for the districts. The county court also had an understanding with the state officials whereby the court tould retain the bonds and the state could retain the money until the delivery of the bonds took place. < nrii I mi ? - ? * -aw-- ?Wlr 1 "l~ne muaev uyeaucu iui uio wui? done In Paw Paw and Lincoln districts to date is the funds procured from the sale^of bonds to Mannington and Fairmont districts.
