All, IWHTH OK COUNTY.
To i lie Editor Will yoti pleate
altoW me I HttlO !PCe in your paper
to .iv ;i few worts regarding tho
good roads movement'.'
I notice In the county papers an
article annoanctng the approprtotloa
of $i2n.ooo to finance the building ol
the Hums crane Highway,
Willie we iiilmit that the above
highway Is n much needed Improve
ment la the county, still we fall to
see why all the funds should I x
ponded on one particular road.
We feel that there are other coun
ty roads which are badly lu need Of
work and these are the varloua ntnge
routes. Some of these in the south
em part of the count v are ll almowt
Impassable condition during the ear
ly spring and late full rains ami as
these roads havo to be used, no mat
ter what the weather Is, we think It
Is up to the county commissioners to
expend a few dollars on them as well
as to expend so much fin one road
and neglect the others.
There are some parts of theso roads
that could be made good In all season
by a little grading and UBlng nome
Kravel, which can be had within a
dlstanceof from one to throe miles.
Other places could he made very good
by putting In fine sage brush while
the mud holes are soft and spongy.
The Stage road from Crane to Denlo
especially that part In the flats, are
in had shape during early HprliiR nnd
fall, as are the Diamond and Coon
Also the road from Princeton to
Narrows and from Voltage down Into
the Cation Valley.
And over these roads hundreds of
tons of freight and parcel p.'st has
to be hauled.no matter what the SS
son or the condition of the roads.
Just now. for instance, thousands
of pounds of parcel post are piled up ;
at the a r i. ii s poii offices because of I
the Inability of the carrier.; to get
over lome Of the roads uml these
roadl will Ml worse as soon as the

Why can't some of tho worst places

PRECIPITATION HEAVY. IV
.month or FEBRUARY
The record kept at the court
bouse whh h shows weather condi
tions together with the measurement
of the precipitation, shows to great
advantage for February. The total
wus ;J 89 inches. The gauge at the
Experiment station shows a precip
Itatlon for the month of 1.46 Inches.
This difference hi because of locality
the Itormi follow around the hills
