-A Suggestion For
Better City Roads
How that we have our streets grad
ed, would it not be benellcial to drag
them regularly? This takes money.
"but it pays, to keep them dragged. If
lha Commercial Club of our city, or
the City Council would buy about a
dozen light drags and distribute them
aver the town, would not the owners
of automobiles hitch them to their
oara, after rains, aud drive over the
Streets. TheBe drags could be left at
certain places and owners of cars could
lako their turn at using them over cor
tain districts. 'Hie cutting of weeds
and dragging of our streets is u great
ielp to tho appearand) of u town, Is
this suggestion worth investigating?
