From White River precinct it is re

somewhat reduced, Trie farmers appear
to have come to the conclusion that
small grain is the best paying crop for
7 For some time it has been noticed
that the cut stone as well as some of the
foundation of the court house was not
withstanding the weather as well as it
was thought it should and on examina
tion it was found to be crumbling in
many places'. The fact that lead pipes
jhave never been provided to carry off
the water from the roof left it so that
the foundation was liable io become un
dermined. It will be necessary to have
the stone work pointed tip and a coat of
cement put on and also to have lead
pipes to carrj the water away from the
foundation. The repairs needed will not
cost to exceed two hundred dollars, and
perhaps not more than half that sum,
but at ail events, it is necessary to have
it fixed in order to prevent a
much larger bill of expense. The regu
lar meeting of the commissioners will
occur in a few weeks, at which time the
matter will be looked into, without
doubt, for Commissioner Green was ex
amining it on Tuesday. It is a case
where the old saw "a stich in time saves
nine"' will apply very nicely.
The work of surveying the new road
from the valley has progressed far
enough so that the grade slakes are set
from the top of the hill to the point
where the road reaches the water at a
point about half a mile below W. R.
Smith's house. Judge Barker informs
us that the distance staked out is four
teen thousand, nine hundred feet. Starts
ing at the point w.here the line reaches
the water level and coming up the grade
for the first fifteen hundred feet is five
feet to each one hundred; the next eight
hundred feet is a dead level, and from
there to the top of the hill there is no
grade which exceeds 4 feet to the hundred
and much of it is less than three feet in a
hundred. The new survey has a number
of advantages. It does away with a
number of bridged which are always a
source of trouble and expense, it gets the
road out of the creek bottom so that it
will not be continually washing out, and
it makes an easy grade and is so located
that when a foot of elevatiori is gained it
is not lost by going down a hill, but
keeps working toward the top all the
time. A littla more work must be done
in running Hie level and then the line
will be ready for work. With that road
completed it will make it so that the
farmers in the valley can get the east
and west roads leading to it fixed up and
so have good roads on which to travel
all the way to the county seat. The
plan of established one good road to the
trade center and then fix side roads lead
ing to it in being advocated in the east by
thoM who have investigated the matter,
for it in found to be equally convenient

Commissioner John A. Green was in
town Monday and informed us that for
more than a year he has not been able to
hear from his son, John D. Green, who
left Shelby, Iowa, in February, 1891,
riding one pony and leading another.
He probably had cpuite a sum of money
with him as he had sold a lot of horses
which he took from here. The horses lie
started to return with were branded K
bar on left shoulder, and C on left jaw.
Mr. Green would like to learu of bis son's
whereaboiUs. He was 23 years old,
about 5 feet 10 inches tall and would
weigh about 200 pounds. One of the
ponies he had was a sort of blue-mouse
color and the other a bay', and he used
a large cowboy saddle.
