new property is-completed, Mr.
and Mrs. Will will board in the

BOARD OF

A regular meeting of the Board
of Supervisors of Claiborne Coun
ty, Miss., was begun and held at
the court house on Monday, Oct.
2nd, 1916. Present— L. B. Allen,
president; A. C Callender, <J. M.

members; Jos. Davenport, sheriff;
B. H. Morehead, clerk.
The following orders and entries
were had, towit:
SUPERVISORS' ROAD RE
PORTS
To the Hon. Board of Supervisors
of Claiborne County:
Beg to make this my third quar
terly report on the public roads of
District i.
I have inspected all
the roads of District 1 and find
The
them in excellent condition,
new contractor has had only part
of the roads up to this time, bnt
from now on will bave charge of
the whole district.
I am recora
mending that my contractors be
paid in full, as all old contractors
have roads in acceptable condition,
and the new contractor has all
roads up that be has had sixty
days, and is entitled to pay. Beg
to report that the small bridges in
my district are 1 m very bad condi
tion and that I <ra now in position
to secure the necessary lumber to
repair the balance of them. How
ever some of the small iron bridges
are in really dangerous condition.
I will have these repaired at once
and the balance as soon as I can
get them done.
Respectfully submitted,
L. B. ALLEN.
To the Hon. Board of Supervisors
of Claiborne Comity:
I file this as my report on con
dition of roads and bridges in Dist.^
3 of said conniy as follows:
I have inspected my roads and
( bridges and l r find all roads worked
under the g M
condition, and rectfffMiend that the
contractors be paid in full for past
quarter.
I find the roads worked under
the new contracts op to specifica
tions. I would recommend that in
cases of new contracts that the
contractors be paid for the work
done np to October ist, 1916, so
that all quarters will come at the
same time in the future and I will
not have to inspect my roads (.or
some of them) every month. I
think that by paying these new
contractors for the work done by
them to October ist, 1916, and
fhen beginning all roads on an
even basis that it will be best for
contractors and for the comity.

I find some of the nrHyes in

having these repairs made as fast
as I can get the lumber.

Member Board of Supervisors of
Dist. No. 3.
To the Hon. Board of Supervisors
of Claiborne County:
I make this my third quarterly

Dist. No. 4.
of same and report all of my roads
up to specifications except Link 10
and 13 and recommend payment
except for said links. I find my
bridges in good condition except a
few small bridges. I have been 1
unable to have Carlisle bridge fixed
on account, of not being able to get
lumber.
Respectfully submitted,
W. R. TRIM.
To the Hon. Board of Supervisors
of Claiborne County;
I beg to make my third quarter
ly report: On all roads the con
tractor bas en* right of way and is
in passable condition. $ome parts
of the road that he hasn't worked
yet are in very bad shape All the
roads are very narrow and have
grown up and will take some time
to put them up- All bridges and
culverts that I haven't built or
repaired are needing repair more
or less. The work is slow on ac
count of not being able to get lum
ber. Lumber that we get now for
bridge work is very bad grade,
generally very badly- sawed and
only lasts three or four years. I
do think where the Board could
get suitable gravel conveniently all
small bridges and culverts should
be built of concrete. It would be
money well spent in years to come.

How^o Give Good Advice.
