ROAD COMPLETED TO CARTHAGE
The road from Coleridge has been
completed from there to High Falls
and thence to Carthajre. Asheboro
now connects with Carthage, a road 46
miles in length going direct from
Asheboro to Coleridge and from there
to Bennett to High Falls and on to
Carthaire. The road is gravel prac
tically all the way except in parts of
Moore county that is sand clay. Those
making the trip- can go by .Franklin
ville and Ramseur if they prefer to go
direct to Carthage. There still re
mains two other roads under the
schedule laid out by former board of
commissioners, and one of these is the
road from Asheboro to B rowers Mills
and the other is the road from Ulah to
Montgomery county line. This road
has been completed to Pisgah, but is
not as well constructed road as it
Bhould be. There remains 4 Or 5 miles
of this road which should be complet
ed to the Montgomery county line, and
effort should be made to get to the
Montcromerv countv line ' and from
there to Troy, for. that yny it i only
28, miles to Troy. That road and the
road to B rowers Mills are tne two
roads of most importance to the
business men of 'Asheboro, and the
roads that have been neglected . the
longest Inb sliding.
