obliged to haul 30 or 40 miles. They should show that they appreciate these

advantages by rendering all the aid in their power to advance the interest of

the new firm and thus benefit themselves.
The roads are now in a very bad

condition. They must be made good by the people sooner or later and it will cost

no more to do it now than at some future time. The trail leading from the north

branch road to the main river bridge is hardly passable for footmen, still it is

the only route to the town of How. There is a direct road cut through all but

three-quarters of a mile, which would shorten the route by some three miles. The

citizens should finish this road. The road on the How side of the river could

also be greatly improved and a town which contains so much fine farming land

should have good roads. It would attract settlers.

There were no How columns during 1881
