Whether the board will accept if or not is matter of conjecture, bur the we feel assured that the fence was built according to contract and that its present condition is due to a force that as irresistible as it was unforeseen.

He will be here on busi kvs for some time. point a Road Commissioner, and to fix the compensation at a sum not to exceed 75 per month. Th act further provides that the board of supervisors shall divide the roads into two classes to be known as first class roads. The main thoroughfares leading to the principle markets are to be roads of the first class and all other roads are to bo roads of the second class. The road commissioner has general supervision and management of all public roads in the county and makes specifications and plans of all bridges and superintends their erection.

He has the custody of all the tools and road implements and makes his reports to the board of su pervisors. prosecuting delinquents, and reports to the grand jury at every term of circuit court, the condition of the public roads and any dereliction of duty of any road overseer. Whether the law will be a success or not is a matter of specu nation. Our jiresent road law is insufficient to keep good roads in our county and whether this law is an improvement over the old one or not, we wrill have to see it tried before we venture an opinion. A great deal will depend on the man the board may appoint, his salary and the kind of overseers he will have to contend with.

It is left optional with the board whether the law will be enacted or not iu the county and as our board of supervisors is composed of the most level-headed men in the county we are sure if it is a good thing they will en act it here, if not, they will let the old law stand.
