One in the direction of good roads is contained in the following resolution: Resolved, That no grades to bo paid for by tho couuty shall ho commenced until tho sloughs hnvo been thoroughly drained and all surface water run off. This means tho beginning of road reform, for the water which surrounds most of the grades is the sole cause of trouble. If the money that has boon spent already had been put in thorough draining more good would have resulted. BILLS TO BE FILED. Another important resolution was as follows: Resolved, That all county officers purchasing supplies for their ofllcinl use be requested to file with the auditor a copy of tho supplies ordered with tho price agreed upon, and when tho goods are received tho same arc to be checked from tho bill ordered, that the board may know whatgoods they should pay for and at what price.

The committee appointed on jail have decided that the present one is good enough, and altogether too healthy. They have authorized the auditor to have the jail repaired, and it is said that they are thinking of putting dynamite in the walls so that no further digging will occur, at least there was some joking of that kind. Nothing was done with the following report from the grand jury: The grand jury of Kossuth county after making a careful inspection of the jail of said county report as follows: 1. The said jail is not in condition for the confinement of'prisoners by not being properly ventilated or drained. That said jail is needlessly dirty and filthy in the part used by the city for tramps. 3. The doors of the colls or cages have nothing to protect the locks and the prisoner inside can reach the locks and one on the outside can pass through tools. We recommend that the place now used for jail be condemned as not suitable and would recommend that a jail be erected outside. E. McWHORTER, Foreman. Ordered submitted to the board of supervisors.
