Business and Professional Men Taking
Part in Good Roads Work
In Mineral County
Today is the first day of the Good Roads Days, set apart by the Governor of the State and one would be surprised to see such a crowd of men at work on the road. Early this morning business men could be seen going to the country to help build permanent roads. Lawyers and Merchants are at work on the road leading to the cemetery. They are putting the finishing touches on the road that Street Commissioner A J Keenan started to widen. Dr Furbee is simply throwing the dirt in every direction, as is the very large and representative crowd that is laboring with him. Tomorrow will be the big day on this part of the road and every citizen who is desirous of putting in a day on the road will find a welcome with this bunch of good fellows. Why not go out this evening and see what has been done, and then, too, go a step farther and in the morning take your pick and shovel and hike to the county road and do a faithful days work for yourself and your appreciative friends.
