DeJerrey, of the firm of DeJersey & Barnard, was in town last Monday, investigating the needs of Winnfield in the line of concrete sid(ewalks. This frm h*..' enmpleted eleven miles of .. . fr RI-t ,,... :;i ll n s p -e, aion of which they carnestly in vite. The contract with the resi (entR of Rustoa was, first for cash at the option of the owner, or second, twenty per cent of the cost in cash, and the balance in certificatee of 1, 2. 3. 4 ar.d 5 years bearing 6 per cent interest. They build these sidewalks for 12 1-2 cents per square foot and give a bond of $10,000 guarantee. ing the maintenance of the work for a period of two years. There is an extended area in Winnfield in the residence dis tricta that should be paved for the convenience of the people and there is no question that the pavr ing of the sidewalks will greatly enhance the value of property. As the town as at present, outside of the paving already laid, there are virtually no sidewalks, only paths leading to the residences. Nothing adds to the attractaons of a town more than neatly paved idlewalks and the comfort and immunity from mud and water in stormy periods. It is bhped that the property owners will give this subject care ful attention. The terms of payv ing give all an opportunity to havre their sidewalks neatly paved, as well as mase the terms of pay meet within the reach of every man who cae afford to own lots within the town limits. Mr. I) Jersey is now building some houses on his own lots in Buston, made of concrete bricks. It is hoped that this matter will he actively agitated and the sidewalk pavilng extended to the limits of the town. It i , a step i', progree sion that is not orly needed, but in time will become an imperative necessity. Mr. DeJersey will visit Winnfield next Monday to disouss this matter with the people and town council to see if some ar raanement cannot be reached to beg.I andl complete this work. This is a matter of too much importance to Se negleoted. Head & Dubose.
