ciaL) Work on state road pavijig
in this section is progressing sat
isfactorily. There are two contracts

of the pavement laid on the job
near Grand- Mound, which Is an ex
tension over into Thurston county
from the Lewis county pavemen,t,
which ends at the county line.
This particular piece of povemnt
will gladden the hearts of - probably
as many -persons as any that will be
laid in the state this year. It will
cover a tretcb of road that is the
connecting link between Lewis and
Thurston counties, and also the main
road to Grays Harbor county from
this section as well.
Thurston county authorities never
apparently paid any attention to
maintaining the macadam road and
this piece always was the roughest
spot between Chehalls and Tacoma.
Tw o other . hard-surface jobs in
Lewis county also are well under
way. On Boistfort prairie work is
being done on the last- stretch of a
three-quarters of a mile extension
of the hard-surface road that ex
tends up the Chehalis valley. This
road Is eight feet in Width with a
macadam road alongside. As soon
as Albers & Son. the contractors.
complete this job they will go to
J'aclflc county, where they have con
tracts for about six miles of paving,
part near Raymond, some near
i.Dam ana some near Holcomb .
Contractor Hendricks is well started
on the first harcT-surface work to
be done in Lewis county under the
Donahoe road law. This road wfll
cover the distance between Winlock
and Cowlitz prairie and is five miles
