Attorney O S Blanclmrd thinks that the Courier's court reporter was a bit misinformed regarding the statue of the liquor license application of Wise man & Light, to dispense liquid re freshments to the people of Leland. He asserts that the said ptruiit was granted for a period of six months, al though the minutes of ths court only state that f 100 was paid, for a period of three months. Aod as to the saloon keepers having to close up their place of business, he emphatic ally declarts that no such understand ing win expressed or implied, Jwht-a the county court granted the license. The reporter states that he obtained his information from persons oho were iu attendance upon the court, when the matter was np for consider-! - - atlon and that lie had every reason to believe that his Informant was telling liim the truth about 'he mat ter. Ou the contrary, Mr. Blanrhard affirms thst bis clients will continue to'dtal iu booze, after the six nn nibs are up, as lie avers that they have hv tl. mnmi WrH In r 'CT!, 1 the ronrthouse doings, tbe Courier endeavors t" five the farts uiul to confine iUelf to the tiuth in all hucTi matters. Jtut what ' were the actual facts in this controversy seem to be"a matter nptn which leteral persons fail to agree. Some Minor Mentions Daniel W.

Monday morning Sheriff Rnsaell wa called up on the 'phone from Meilin aud informed' that the even ing before the afe of the Merliq Mer cantile Co., had been blowu open by burglars aud something like 3i0 in casli extricated therefrom. There was no oloe, whatevsr, as to who was the perpetrator of the deed. How ever, mauy hoboes have been seen around the place and it is thought that some one of the gentty has had a hand in the matter. Sheriff Russell dispatched a depot? to "the scene of the robbery, at once, while officers from Merlin cams np to the county seat, hoping to get some clue from the hobo crowd that usually congre gates in this city. A T Lewis was before the County Clerk. Monday, having papers made out for his new patent for the manu facture ef concrete building blocks.

Engineers. There has recently been completed in Rock county.' Wla.. the first strip of road built under the supervision of United States engineers since Wiscon sin emerged from a territory Into the dignity of statehood, says a Janesvlllu (Wis.) correspondent of the Milwaukee Sentinel. Incidentally it is tbe first model road to be constructed In Wis consin on rural roads with proper ma chinery on rules laid down by the government This strip of road is three-quarters of a mile iu length and lies a hulf mile east of Clinton, In Uie township of that name. When the county board met last spring tbe towns of Clinton, Plymouth, Center, Fulton, Bradford. Belolt and lllltou all appropriated sums ranging from $400 to $1,000 for the construc tion of good roads. According to the state law, the county board was of ne cessity forced to appropriate from county funds nn equal sum for each town equal to their appropriation. Just nt this time Samuel C. Lancas ter of the bureau of good roads at Wnshlngtou spoke ln-fore the state legislature, and Mr. Ilotcbklsa. secre tary of the state good roads move ment, prevailed upon him to visit Itock county as the ouly county In the state which hud appropriations for tbe pur pose. Ills visit resultcnl In the good roads bureau at Washington being pre vailed upon to send a complete set of road building machinery aud engineers to construct three-quarters of a mile of model road as an examplo for the rest of the county to follow. While the cost of the road rau over the $2,000 appropriated, this was due to high prices of material and long hauls aud can be easily overcome In future roads. Tbe road is built with a twelve foot crown or macadam center. The rock bed is eight inches deep, tbe stone be ing crushed from a thickness of four teen to eight luches. Tbe regular mac adam process was used. A layer of coarse rock four Inches thick was first laid, then a layer of thinner rock plac ed in the cracks and rolled down thor OBJBCT LCKflON ouusia. ROAD 1M WIS oughly, these latter being stones thai would pass through a one and a half Inch space and were laid three Incbe deep. A surface dressing of screen lngs one Inch thick was then laid and the whole watered and rolled bard and firm. , Tbe crown or surfsce of the road has a curvature of three-fourths of an Inch, to the foot, giving good drainage. The question of drainage for the road was carefully looked to. Side drtches and culverts were placed where water was liable to do serious dam age by washing, and attention was paid to the formation of the land fb rough which the road runs. Tbe government outfit nsed consist ed of a portable stone crusher, a re volving sieve, which separates ths rock after being crushed; bins, a steam roller, a sprinkler wagon, Bcrapers and dumping wagons. The type of wag ons used bus an adjustable box allow ing the rear end to lie tilted dowu cloeo to the ground so that an even distribution of the crushed stone Is ob talned.
