Yesterday, however; matters were straightened out to the staisfac tion of the highway district commis sioners and to tihe board. Under the agreement reached yesterday the district will use the money for the construction of the Pine Creek road from Leland to about Fir Bluff, a distance of about six miles.

Five thousand dollars of the money allowed the Pot latch highway district is from the Lewiston highway district fund, the commissioners making the transfer with thc approval of all concerned. The $12,000 will not be sufficient for the construction of the road for the entire distance, and it is expected that funds will be raised in and labor do nated from the Leland section.

Griuolds, it being ol the open-front type. He also keeps White 1-eghorns, which are now lay ing fifty per cent. He expects not only to increase his flock in the present house but intends to build another house of similar size, thus giving a total capacity of about 1,000 fowls. The size built, 20 by 120 feet gives, he claims, four square feet of floor space for each of 500 fowls. By means of wooden shutters he closes the lower half of the open front at night, this coming above the roosting level. The feed boxes are on shelved platforms thus leaving the entire floor space for scratching. The cost was about $">00 for material alone." Thomas Gets Limit W. Thomas returned Monday from Kendrick.
