accompanied by a pack of dogs, walked
their legs weary hunting the sly coon

FAVORS $500,000 BOND ISSUE
Garfield county is waking up on the
subject of good roads. Articles in the
Morning News pointing out tne import
ance of mad building have attracted at-
tention and aroused interest.
The subject has not been formally
taken up by the board of county com-
missioners but they have discussed it
privately arno.ig themselves. Mr. H
C. Jayne, a member of the board, is en-
thusiastic in his advocacy of some plan
provements. Of course all of this $60,-
000 bond has not gone into roads.
Much of it has been used for bridges.
The county has good bridges and we
will not have to make much more ex
penditure on this account.

can be used to the best advantage for

caiity and it will be necessary to make
