Rock Road Promised
The county court has pur­
chased o f H. G. Luck four acres
obout a half mile above the
Meachem school for a quarry.
The stone appears to be o f excel­
lent quality and will he used on
the roads in the northern part of
the country. It is a volcanic for­
mation and little blasting will be
necessary, as much o f the rock is
broken and all ready for the
crusher. Judge Reasoner figures
that rock from this quarry will
cost the county 25 cents a yard
against 90 cents a yard at the
county quarry at Goodin station.
On figuring up avalable funds it
has been found that there is
money enough to rock the gap
in the Base Line road left after
present district work is done and
the work will be completed dur­
ing the present season. This
will mean a solid stretch o f rock
road between Hillsboro and For­
est Grove.
