Wc notice that the lute heavy rains lure
suggested to our fumicrs tlio necessity of
doing up their hauling before tlio rainy
star.on seta in. 1 here will moot likely be
several recti yet of pretty weather for
business, am all who can do no ought to
lay in their supplies while the ruuds are
good. We would also (nicest to a few
ni'Mi who k.' ferries, that it would be to
their credit if they would dig down the
banks an J make their ferries a little cadet
of access. There are some ferries whero,
through the shiftleKsiiens of their keeper, it
in almost iiujiosiiMc to pull a load from the
boats up the blinks. Itepiiblirans of course
ore too enterprising to need such advice.
Mr. Taylor, who keeps a furry on the roud
leading from Puylou to I'ortland through
the gap of the Chuliulem inoiiiituin, has not
only worked down the batiks at hid f.rry,
but ha kept a hired hand working tho roads
for mili-H each way fiowi his f rry, till the
Taylui's furry road is now considered much
the best way leuiling to I'ortland on that
side of the river. .Mr. Taylor is of course
a sound Uepublican. .Sectionalism seldom
bother their heads about roads.
