St. Helens Mist:
I would like to sav a few words
in the columns of your valuable
paper in regard to bonding and
good roads. I notice an article in
in the Mist of Sept. 5, where repre
sentatives of different counties met
to talk over the road question and
arrange for better roads. Now I,
for one, as a tax payer, am not
in favor of bonding for an auto
road along the river until we get
roads n the country that we
farmers can get to market on with
our produce, without bumping over
old broken puncheon and logs that
the good old homesteader put in 30
or 40 years ago. I say open up the
farming country first and give the

market witn a uozen eggs wimoui

gets there. I see in your article
that Mr. Samuel Hill has made 38
trira across the ocean for the pur
pose of studying road conditions
He should be an expert by this
time. I have -.-.ever made a trip

announces that she has come to St.
Helens to make her home and is
prepared to do all kinds of nursing.
During the coming week, Sept.
29th to Oct. 4th, I expect to attend
a special course of lectures and
clinics which will necessitate my
being away during the greater part
of the week. However, I will make
an effort to be in my office between
the hours of 9 and 11 on Monday,
Wednesday and Friday of the
above week, but only for such work
as requires immediate attention.
Dr. R. L. Jeffcott.
Dr. Cliff and Kenneth motored
down from Portland last Tuesday
evening to attend the K. of r.
festivities. Dr. Cliff recently had
his automobile stolen and after a
trip through Washington County on
the trail of the robbers came back
to Portland and found his car
alongside the road in South Port
land, where it had been left after
runnintr out of gasoline. The car
would one want than to ride
through a good prosperous farm
ing country? Give us ranchers good
roads and we will furnish the sight
seer with grand scenery. I cannot
see wherein an auto road from
Portland to Astoria via the Colum
bia river route would materially
benefit the farmer. There can be
a uniform grade from the foot of
the hill, or what is known as the j
Wallace place, to the summit, not
to exceed a 6 per cent grade in any
place. If the cities along the pro
posed Columbia river route see fit
to raise money to build an auto
road I don't believe the farmers
will object. I believe by bonding
and building our roads at once we
will get more miles of roads and
better roads for the same amount
of money. At the present way we
are building roads we necessarily
eave to spend a great deal of money
for patching and repairing where it
