FOR TROY BRIDGE
IS BOON TO ALL RESIDENTS OF
GROUSE AND GARDEN OF
EDEN COUNTRIES. ,
Grouse, Sept. 6. The people of the
Grouse country on both sides of the
slate line between the Grande Uonde
river and the Elue Mountains are
wonderfully pleased over the comple
tion of the new steel bridge at Troy.
They say many congratulations era
due the county commissioners for
the Interest they have taken in .the
welfare of our people, and a num
ber of them met the honorable
county court at Troy Saturday and
served a nice picnic dinner which
was enjoyed by all present.
The foreman of the party putting
up the bridge la spoken of in the
highest terms of respect. The
Dridge crew of nine men have made
many friends here and are highly
esteemed as gentlemen. We are
sorry that two of the party were tak
en sick at the close of the work.
The crew were all served a fine
dinner at Grouse Sunday while en
route to Levvtotan.
The grist mill at Troy is nearlng
completion, and D. A. Silver has a
new dwelling house well on the way.
Troy is a natural center from all
points west and north of the river
and will to: the near future be a
place of note. At present the pub
lic roads are not in a cunidi'tlon to
warrant a rapid Improvement. like
in all other new countries the first
roads opened: up ere made for the
quickest and cheapest route regard
less of the steepness and other in
conveniences. The citizens of the Grouse coun
try don't want to ask any more fa
vors .of the county court 'than are
absolutely necessary, but under the
c ire um stances we can't well avoid
asking a new road to be laid out
from Troy to the top of the hill
Mar E, tUcih&aa'a, vis the present
road la not safe for1" public travel.
If a road can be established the
moat of the work should be done
by subscription . The people are
much more interes-ed than ever be
fore as the bridge is open for trav
el andi the Troy mill will be In op
eration soon which will more than
double the travel.
