The reports of James Hartwell and F. P. Ake, the viewers, were read. Mr. Hartwell's report des cribes the proposed route as prac ticable but shows no estimate of cost of construction. Mr. Ake's re port estimates the cost of the road, based on a rough calculation, to be from $6<XX) to $7(XX), of which sum, all except $999, responsible persons agree to pay. Taking this into con sideration, the probable cost on the county to complete the road would be as follows: Grading road, $999;. bridge to bo built, $2000; inciden-j tal expenses, $500; total, $3,499.00. j County surveyor Rhoades and Mr. Ake were then sworn and ex amined as witnesses regarding the j reports.
