TURNPIKE SURVEY WILL SOON BE FINISHED Engineer Brown and Assistants At i Meadows Having Located a Per- j manent Route lor the Highway From the Buck Island Bridge Not Much Trouble Over Rights cMVay. Engineer Brown, of the North Carolina Geological and Knocomic Survey, who is locating the route for the sand-clay turnpike from I'.uek Island bridge to the Forsyth county line, is now working in the Meadows section. He will, probably reach Walnut Cove Friday and will doubtless finish the survey at the county line by Saturday, or sooner. The permanent route for the highway has been located as far south from the northern terminus as Meadows. But little trouble has been encountered in the right of way, large landowners like A. .J. Fair, John M. Calloway, .J. Spot Taylor. I >rs. J. Walter Neal, J. William Neal, J. M. Neal, and others offering freely the rftute over their property. It is now believed by every well informed person that the landowner who is damaged most by the turnpike is the one whom the r imsses. Property along a scieni i: c highway is worth from t'.vo to twenty times more than pro; rt\ isolated on a bad road. Kverybody likes t.i li\t on the frc-'it. Bark lots* or land that is (lillieult to reach is great ly less desirable than property which has a frontage on a tho roughfare. It is the policy of the turnpike company to pay no damages to any person, which would be a troublesome preced ent, as to pay one person would mean chat others would have to be paid, and the beginning of this policy would mean a costly un dertaking. The men who are putting their money up for the building of the turnpike are do ing so on the supposition and with the understanding that the people want the road, and not that they would impede its com ing with any stumbling blocks. Should the present route be im possible to be secured, a new route will at once be laid out in a different direction. The Re porter will print next week a list of those who have given the right of way, together with the distance over their lands which the road traverses. It is hoped that the survey may be completed, the charter secur ed, the balance of the money raised and work started by the first of June. Work will begin probably at the county line or at Walnut Cove, in order that the necessary machinery may be transported easily as it may te needed on the road. Wood mowers, rakes, repairs. Keiger's store. New Union Store Opens. The new Farmers' Union store on Mizpah Route 1, located at Mr. W. G. Slate's roller mill, has been completed and opened up with a full stock of goods. This store is branch of the Union store at King and will no doubt, do well. Dr. J. W. Slate is president of the company. Seven Inmates In County Jail —Joe Martin Davis Latest Arrival -loe Martin Davis, a young Walnut Cove negr\ was arrest ed and placed in jail here Satur day by Sheriff C. M. Jones on the charge of stealing a pair of pants. Sheriff Jones now has seven prisoners in the county jail, the largest number for quite awhile, j Three of the inmates are women.
