Installing Rock Crusher
The Murphy Township Highway |
Commission has purchased a rock
crusher from the Federal Construction
Company and are installing it
on the rock bluff just beyond the
Wm. p. Pnyug store. The stone will

of the township roads. This is a
1 good grade of stone and with the
aid of the crusher the Commissioners
will be able to build some roads ,
thai will withstand the traffic and
rainy season through the winter
months. It has been demonstrated
again and again that dirt roads will
not stand up in this country in the
j winter months and the Commission|
