Twenty one bridges in the county

Three weeKs a?o the county court
advertised for bids for the improve-
ment of 10 miles of road over what is
known as Butler Hill, saving nine
nules in connecting with the main Til
lamook roal. Not a single .bid was re
ceived for the work, which would re-
quire the greater part of the summer j
to perform. The same is true regard-
ing the operation of the County's two
rock quarries. Notwithstanding that
the court has made a liberal wage
scale for workmen, it has thus far
been unable to find even a small crew.
Usually at this season of the year
the county has about 150 men engaged
in road work, while at present there
is only local patch operations under
insects, which drop on the platform.
The plants spring back just as the
second section comes along, and re

completely knocks the remaining pests

gency will pcrsuauo Uenerat focn to
exhaust tho Americans for defensive
nurnoses. Tlwero is no other force of
fighters left in the world that contains
such splendid offensive material as the
Americans. This is because America is
tho only first class power left that still
has its young men intact; and it is
the youths in tlib twenties who man.',
tho best offensive soldiers. It is iin
nrobable, too, that General Toch, would
consent under normal circumstances to
the nermnnent employment of these
virile, actiw, young Americans for de
fensive trench warfare. Nor is it likely
he will be agreeable to th.'ir employ
ment for a major ofensive until there
arc enough Americans in France to give
a reasonable Burety of success. The bri
gading of Americans during the pr.csent
scries of combats is an admirable pro
cedure for completing their training.
It is futile for soldiers to enter upon
offensive operations with simply a
trnuiine in the theory of warfare. Ac
tual practice is absolutely necessary for
the Americans and this they can get
wjth maximum results through the bri
gading nicthod. But, the brigading is
only preliminary to the real thing, and
the real thing will come when there are
sufficient Americans in irancfl lor an
