"A few weeks ago when C. C. Chap

tho public a few cold fact relative
to the failure and flagrant audacity
of Samuel Hill In his efforts at build
ing all the automobile roads ot two
states, we thought him a little bit
severe; but new that we are having

Mr. Chapman said: 'It Mr, Hill ovor

"This, desert route goes through
a country that haa alwaya been

cattle, horse and sheep lick up the
