Creek road ' a mile or two from
town. This is not the portion ! of
Oak Creek road between this city
and Philomath, but a piece of road
between Corvallis and the P. A.

road, cutting it out badly. The
soil is such that it is hard to do
anything in the way of road build

location 01 a certain section and
make some repairs "of a permanent
