DRAGGING OF THE
ROADS IS IN ORDER
Heavy Rains Have Placed the High
ways in Fine Condition for
Dragging for Winter.
From Friday Dally.
The heavy rain yesterday through
out Cass county has placed the high
ways in an ideal condition lor urag
ging and a little work at this time
will do wonders in putting the roads
in a shape where they will be open
for travel all winter and be a pleas
ure to travel over.
The dragging will not require a
great deal of time with the soil in
the shape it is now and will do away
with the rough condition that has
been complained of so much by the
auto owners and residents of the
county in general. It will require
the co-operation of the persons liv
ing along the roads to get out and
help in the work, but the result se
cured will more than repay any ef
fort that may be made. A number
of the streets of the city are in poor
condition and can be improved by
the liberal use of a drag. One of
these is North Third street, which
is quite rough.
The soil is fast drying and is in
such shape now that it can lie easily
handled and without much effort
the roads can be placed In first class
shape. It will soon be winter and
to. leave the roads in the shape they
are at present means there will be
rough traveling all winter, when a
little time anil work now will do
awav with the nuisance 01 me rougn
thoroughfares. The roads are a iyat

It is expected that inside of two
weeks the plant will be in full run

is certainly to be hoped that this

RAINY SEASON IS ON.
Frem Thursday's Daily.
Commencing yesterday with scat
tering showers throughout the day
the rainy season seems to be with
us in real earnest judging from the
extent of the downpour which oc
curred today from early morning
and lasting through the day. The
amount of water running through
the Main street made one think of
the old days when the creeks and
water courses flowing from the
hills would overflow and the occu
pants of the business houses on
Main street would get ready for a
big flood sale if there was anything
left. The improvements that have
been made in recent years has car
ed for the disposal of the surface
water in fine shape and .while the
rain yesterday was very heavy it
was an easy matter for 'the surface
water to be cared for. The lowering
of the Main street pavement,
the extension of the sewer system
and tlie paving of the avenues sure
were worth all they cost to the city
in the way of preventing the. costly
floods that used to raise cain in the
city on tjie occasion of each heavy
rain. The rain was a mighty good
thing for the farmers and the only
kick we have is than it was a damp
poor day for news.
PLANNING PROPERTY RETURN.
Steps prelminary to the return of
the railroads to private control are
under way. On the face of the an
nouncement of Direotor-General
nines' order to begin inventory of
supplies on hand as of December 31
next, it might be taken that the pre
liminary steps are to be followed on
the date named by culminating
ones. More likely, however, ' we
shall witness the spectacle of con
gress suddenly rushing through a,
resolution depriving the president
of the right to return the roads at
all. Their owners it is no secret,
do not want them returned until
some real assurance can be given of
their future status. Springfield Republican.

TRULY A HARD LIFE.
From Friday's Daily.
The duties that a member of the
board of education in a small town
is called upon to perform are at all
times numerous but about the new
est phase of his work was the re
quest made a short time ago by one
of the mothers of the city, who,
calling up one of the members of
the board inquired as to what to do
about her young son. whom she
stated, had been picked on by a
number of his schoolmates, who had
worked on him in a rough manner.
The member not being able to offer
any solution of the problem to guar
antee the safety of the young lad,
the mother then suggested that the
member of the board hie himself out
each morning as the lad was en
route to school and guard him from
the fistic atacks of his playmates. It
is needless to say this proposition
was turned down.
