vation and reason that good
roads form primary element
in the material, moral social

any people or country that it
a duty it owes to" the people
of Oregon and especially to
toe people of this county to
urge upon every citizen of this
county to make a serious study
of roads and road making, No

opinionated he or she may be

necessary (o make a good road
