County Hoad Improvement.
Commi.siiioncr II. K. Anderson in
forms a Pendleton paper that two
more Ill-foot mogul graders will be
added to the county road equipment
before the end of this week. Two
caterpillars and two mogul graders
are already at work on the county
roads. With facilities afforded by
use of the new equipment it will be
possible to smooth off -all graveled unci
dirt roads that have long been in
poor condition. The county court esti
mates the damage done to county
roads during the past winter at $25,-000.
Road dragging is occupying the
attention of numbers of Umatilla
county farmers to greater extent
thon formerly, with the result that
better dirt roads will be afforded for
