ed in start the trip on Sunday August

of making a tour of that country was
emphasized by Commissioner ft. K
Bean of f'maplne and approved by C.

tors from other parts of the county.
II was claimed, however, that the fed

load needs, among them the improve
ment of a road to the Toll Gate from
Milton, the road down Butter creek, a
mountain road out from Weston and

It is desirable that tbe trip be made ,
