DISTRICT ROAD ITEMS
The Yankton road from Howard's
place to the Yankton school bouse was
completed last Monday. The total cost
of the Improvement was as follows ;
Clearing road f 108.00
Blasting rock for road 248 30
Crushing, Hauling and rolling 1425.40
Total 3424 50
We were able tocrn -'i 101 yards of
rock foi several days and averaged 90
yards for the entire settlor The grad
took nineteen days and the crashing
eighteen, Including the macadamizing.
About bOOO yards of dirt was moved,
and 1020 yards of rock used In the ma
cadamizing. The road bed It 24 leet
wide with 16 feet of macadam, with an
average depth of ten inches, and with a
crown of one inch to the foot.
We find that the ranchers buy more
ro' k for concrete purposes every year, as
we told lust year at the Yankton Betting
4!iyards, aud this year over 100 yards.
We can save them about $2.50 per yard
on their rock and not loose anything.
After doing a little repair work, the
crudier will be moved to Goble, also the
roller, to build some 2 miles of macadam
road, after which we expect to be back
aud set op in the City Square at Lott-
ville by the brst of October. The crus
her will leave Houlton August 21t.
At piesent we are figuring on setting
op the crusher and housing it in so that
we will be able to do the repair work on
the roads in the winter time, as it has
been found that they are so hard in dry
weather that it is impossible to make
the dressing stick without using oil,
which we sre not prepared to do this
year, but think that it would I advis
able for the district to get ready for next
year. We will also be ready to furnii-li
rock to private parties at any time dur
ing the winter.
The district hasf!032of it special fnnd
to collect yet, which w ill probably come in
in October, and furnish enough capital
for the repairing of most of the macadam
roads, in the winter time, which could
be done to a great deal better advantage
by uaiiig oil for rediesing purpose in
the summer time.
We think that thecouuty court is en
titled to a great deal a( credit for buy
ing a crusher and crushing their own
rock, as they saved the dihtrict on the
Yankton piece of road alone $ 1000.00, as
KiJO yards of rock st St. Helens would
cot them f 1 00 per yard, with an ad.
ditional coal of $2 50 for hauling. The
saving amounts to about the cost of the
crusher plant, which is in fust class con
dition, and good for the making of
many roads yet. Besides this, we saved
the farmers that bought rock enough to
nay their road taxes.

Rainier won from Kalama Sunday in
one of the hardest lought game ol the
season, by a score ol 2 to 0. Winter-

and struck out ten of them. Taylor was
almost as effective holding Rainier to
four hits and stricking oat 13, but was
unfortunate in having a base on balls

third, Colvin got the first of his three
walks, Joe Thompson doubled to the

CLATSKANIE DEFEATS CHINOOK
With Joe Haggin on the mound Ihe
Clafksnie team again came through
with a victory last Sunday, when they
downed the Chinook aggregation by a
score of 9 to 1, eight of the home teams
tallies coming in the second tinning,
after which the visitors put npavery
pretty game of ball. The lone tally of
the boys from the town with the fisby
name was made in the last inning,' and
so there wss no time when the Indians
were in any danger o' loosing the con
test. Next Sunday Clatskanie tangles
with Catblamet, for the fourth time
this year, this time at the Cat h lame t
grounds. The boys across the river
have been scalped so many times by the
Indians that they are always spoiling for
a chance to get a little of the good
money back that is now circulating in
Clatskanie, but they will have to import
some husky hunch of players to take a
game with a Columbia County team.
TWO GAMES SUNDAY.
There will be two ball games at this
place Sunday, and there will be some
thing doing il St. Helens gets away
with them. The first will be the big
event ol the teason, when the Rainier
team and the locals tangle lor their third
game, each team having won one. The
second game will be with the Felida
aggregation, and that means playing the
best that can be found in Vancouver
and elsewhere in Clark County.

Oregon WUI Exhibit.
Oregon will show from 150,000 to 200,
000 people a big exhibit of her nroducts
at the land show in St. Paul December
12 to 23.
Governor West has received word from
the officers of the Northwestern Develop
ment League that the business interests
of St. Paul, Minneapolis and Doluth
have agreed to a deal whereby this state
will be furnished exhibit space without
cost at the land show. The show to be
given under the auspices of the league
is the only one in the country which
not a private enterprise and will be man
aged in such a way ss to furnish space
for official exhibits.
Ata cost of ten thousand dollars the
business interests ol the three Minnesota
cities have booght from the league 3,500
square feet of preferred space at the
show. Each of the seven states will
have a space ot fifty feet long and ten
feet wide'for their official exhibit.
The governor has been asked to con-
fer with officers of the league in this
state and secure the interests of those
necessary to pot in an exhibit which
will be a credit to the state. Under this
plan no one community or city will have
an advantage over others in ths state.
Any city, county or land company de
siring to make an independent exhibit
w ill be able to secure a limited amount
of space near the state exhibit on reas
onable terms, but It is the desire of the
league officers for this state that the best
possible exhibit be made in the name of
the state as it is from such an ex
hibit that results are to be obtained.
The seven states which are to be thnt
represented are Washington, Oregon,
Idaho, Montana, North and South
Dakota and Minnesota. No other states
will have exhibits and Canadian exhi
bits will be barred, the whole idea of
the show being "an exposition by the
seven states Ir the benefit ol the seven
Oregon officeis ol the League are C.
C. Chapman of Portland and William
Hanley ol Burns. Inquiries about the
Oregon exhibit should be addressed to
them while information about the show
and space herein should be addressed
to Will A. Campbell, St. Taul, Minn.

valuable addition to the local pay roll.
