"Long May It Wave."
Just a few words about our " Sol
diers' Monument. We have thought
of suggesting three exact life-size
khaki-clad boys (in bronze) those
that fell on the battle field, (perhaps
their parents have photos of each in
uniform, perhaps with-a smiling sa
lute) placed, one at each of the three
corners of the court house square, not
much higher than the boys, just a
square of mountain granite for base
and a granite slab with the names,
date, company, division, etc., of all
Polk county boys that went to the
war, and company, on the other cor
ner of square. We admit this will
take a whopping big pocket, but what

The Board of Road Commissioners
met in regular session on Monday,
March 1, and some import ,nt matters
were acted upon.
A County Supervisor of roads and
bridges was appointed, whose duty it
shall be to keep himself thoroughly
familiar with all public roads and
Driages oi the county,-and have gen
eral charge of all road and bridge
work. Instead of the old system of
having local road foremen, who could
not repair roads till they had finish
ed working their crops, there will be
three ! section gangs working contin
uously all over the county. These
gangs are now being organized and
win start worK as soon as spring
weather permits efficient work. Each
gang 'will consist of about two teams
and four men and a foreman. A
gang ! will be furnished with a road
machine, a drag, a plow, and other
necessary tools. lour commission
believes that with three section forces
of traineed workers it will be possi
ble to keep the roads of the county in
much better condition than they have
Upon petition from White Oak and
Columbus townships, an election was
ordered to take place on April 20th,
to authorize the issue of bonds, to co
operate with the Federal Government
or State, in building the road from
the Tryon townshipi line through Co
lumbus and Mill Spring to the Ruth
erford county line; and also the road
from Columbus south to Sandy Plains.
Ihese roads would be surfaced with
sand clay, which with proper mainte
nance makes a very satisf actory road.
Your Commission appeals for the
earnest cooperation of all good citi-
zens of Polk county in the work they
are undertaking for the upbuilding
oi the county. ' i
