Grading is still In progress north
of Hums, ono contractor now at

er s finishing up grading In tho
vicinity of Jnp McKlnnott'a plnco on
Toinon crook. With tho ro.mplotloti
of thcno two stretches the grado will
be finished a distance of somo 12
mllon or moro toward tho timber.
It Is understood that tho work
from this point on for n dlstanco of
several mllon Is through sumo hard
country where a steam shovel can
bo usd,to an advantage. However,
this will not stop the letting of con
tracts at other points on tho line
nnd It is qulto likely this will bo tho
case and contractors will bo busy
along tho lino in Silvio valley nnd
on stretches whoro they can work to
on advantage with tho equipment
they have at hand.
With tho completion of a short
dlptanco beyond tho present graded
portion the line will reach tho tract
of timber recently asked to ho cruis
ed and plncud nn tho inarkot. It Is
probable tho rnlls will be laid to that
point and tho timber be cut.
