Genesee News: Work of shaping tip the new state road between ». Genesee and Moscow is in shape lor acceptance by^the state. All has been completed for the past several days, but there were several places where the road had been pretty badly worn by the heavy trucks hauilng gravel for surfacing. The "missing link" is now in fair conidtion tor all-weather travel and it is now possible to make the entire trip from Moscow to Lewiston on a graveled road and the people of this section of the country are duly ap preciativeof this fact. There are those who think good roads are a detriment to a com munity; that thev cause trade to go to other points that rightfully be longs at home. This is perhaps true in a measure, but it is hardly prob able that anyone is going to drive to Moscow or Lewiston to trade if they can get the same grade ot goods at the same price at home.

Build Roads and Bridges Tribune: With the sale of $400,000 worth of road and bridge bonds of Nez Perce county by the county commissioners, Tuesday, which money will become available at once, road and bridge work in Nez Perce county will now go on with swing. Following the opening of (he bids fur the bond issue the board opened bids for the construc tion of two bridges across the Clear water river which, when completed, will open up to the city ot Lewiston as well as adjacent places, the trade and travel from one ot the richest sections in the northwest, a country that has all this time been hamper ed in many ways by circuitous routes being necessarily taken in order to reach cities, towns and points ot shipping. The Security Bridge Co. of this city was awarded the contract for botn bridges. The plans and specifications of •County Engineer Burns, approved by the board of commissioners, call ed for the erection of bridges of steel and concrete at Cheery lanes and at Myrtle, the latter at a point called Dead Man s eddy. The successful bidder will' be giv en 15 days in which to sign the con tracts and furnish bonds to the county, and work will start im mediately after that period. The construction of these bridges opens up a vast territory to this city and section. Orofino, Peck, Caven dish, Lenore, Myrtle, Agatha, Gif ford and other Clearwater towns, all famous for their agricultural interests, will now be provided with river highways with a roadway width of 18 feet. To both bridges well made roads lead from all direc tions, but in the past owing to the many insurmountable bluffs and other natural inconveniences, much of the travel has been made twice longer through the necessity of making detours to aviod impassable points. The bridges will remedy this to the fullest extent. The bridge at Myrtle will consist of one 80 toot span, two of 240 teet each and two of 108 feet each. The total length, including approaches, will be 783 feet. The Cheervlanes bridge will con sist ot five spans of 160 feet each, and approaches to the extent of 30 feet.
