so men say who have seen the work.
Mecklenburg needs a change in the
township system. The writer does not
claim to Know what is best but ho can,
as others do, see J the need of a better
system. The' public roads need to be
carried from Charlotte out to the boun
daries of tho county. The time is coming
when that point will be reached, but it
is ratber slow. The far off townships
suffer for the lack of good roads while
they are coming.
