AOREATBEK TO BE HELD BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, JULY 11., 3 897, %*- SUUUUiUUUUiUUiaUUUifMUUUUUUUUUUUUiUUIUIUU^ Thinks and reads, he has time for both; it is true that the hardest task and the one most poorly done is the sharpening of knives and tools. Without sharp knives the best machine does poor work, while with knives sharp, the poor machine does good work. Tliesandy roads north and northeast) of the city have long been an eye-sore, in fact,.something a pood deal worse than that, and the need of better and more permanent roads has always been apparent. Clare county is fast developing into an A No. 1 agricultural district, and with that development, civilization and progress comes the necessity for good, cheap' and rapid transportation facilities. The farmers north are very willing to do all in their power to bring about better roads, in facC,' during the past year have made more noted advancement in road improving than ever before during the same length of time, and now, while none of the roads are one- quarter as good as they should be, the roads in the immediate vicinity of town are in the poorest condition of any. Yesterday morning a large number of the leading business men and heaviest taxpayers held a rather impromptu gathering over J, F. Tatman's store and formed the line of aqtion. Mr, Tatman was made chairman and explained the obji ct of the meeting. It was not necessary to explain why the object should be carried out. That is apparent to everyone. Inasmuch as the road improvement will be a direct benefit to all, it was agreed that the citv council be asked to appropriate $100 towards the improvement, and tbe following gentlemen vvere selected to Uy the matter before that body.* Wm. "Wolsey, J. W. Calkins and A. J. Doherty. S. 0. Kirkbride and R. M. Mussell were chosen to call upon the farmers northeast of town to ask for donation of labor a id teams, while 0. S. Derby and J. A Jackson will visit the farmers north. L. E. Davy, J. S. Boyd and J. IT. Schilling were appointed to wait upon the ladies regarding the furnishing of dinner on the days of the bee. j D. R. Rorison, 0. H. Sutherland and J. F. Tatman will solicit funds and 1 labor. I The following committee of five was 1 appointed whose duty will be to plan | and mauage the road work and they ■ are to meet at once, formulate their plans and lay them before the meeting which will be held over Tatman's store next week Thursday at 10 o'clock ia the morning: Carl Bellimr, F. Mc- Creary, C. W. Perry, E. H. Waller and J. A. Jackson. V Good roads afford pleasure. * * * Good roads facilitate travel. * Good roads decrease taxation, * * ANEW STATE LAW.
