The governor’s party will also take due notice that this is dry territory and is a good season for snakes.—Batesville Guard. The county macadam road .from the city limits to the old fair ground site is fast becoming a bad piece of roadway, all for lack of necessary repairing in the way of a surface coating of fine rock. In many cities maca dm roadways are repaired and :made new by running over a heavy roller set with spikes that tear loose the whole surface of the roadway and thus allow an additional coat of fine rock or screenings to form a binding top. __i t_ I that will be in condition through out the winter to meet the de i rnands of the heavy travel which ( enters Newport over this road. If the bridge is to be repaired it ought to be done now. i i If Governor Hays becomes known as the “Good Roads Gov ernor,” an honor he bids fair to j«attain, it will be more to his cred jit than to have built the state capitol or to have accomplished | any other of the meritorious acts of his predecessors. The governor who turns the state’s attention and work to the im provement of her highways, brings blessings to her people that future historians will not ignore.

Had the money due from St. Francis County been paid, the per cent of allowance would j have been about 73. _ I Annual Meeting Postponed. Special to Independent.

Five bales of cotton were mar keted on the street here Thurs-! day and about as many more Fri day. The ruling price was 12^ cents per pound. A great deal of cotton has opened by reason of the drouth and the first pick ing is getting half the yield.
