"What are your plans for road
woi kf was asked of Koad Commis
sioner Thos. K. Williams yesterday,
'Our purpose," said Mr. Williams,
'is to go ou with the grading until
all the principal roads iu the town
ship are projierly graded and
straightened to the township line.
All work is being done on a per
manent basis. The work that we
are doing will never be to do over.
The road beds that are uow being
made are expected to be here at
the end of the century. Two more
years will be necessary to complete
this work. Then we expect to go
to macadamizing. Nature has done
much for Union county. You may
say that our roads are good for nine
months of the year. Just as soon
us possible the worst places must
be made good for ail the year."
