on the Molalla road. The Howard hill

is progressing slowly on the Spangler
hill. On account of the continued
rains and heavy traffic, the mud is very
deep in the latter piece of road. They
are now putting down large rock in the
bottom of the roadway, which will be
pressed into solid position with a roller
weighing several tons. A layer of
crushed rock will be put on top of this,

more economical tor the county to have
paid more for the lumber, and secured
it earlier in the season. -Go
