350F00T BRIDGE ON
Commissioners Court Joins
Hamlin People in Bridg-
A contract was made and
entered into between Austin
Bros., of Dallas and the Commis-
sioners Court of Stonewall county
last week whereby the aforesaid
Austin Bros, are to build a bridge
on Double Mountain river be-
tween Aspermont and Hamlin.
The citizens of Hamlin have
entered into a contract to pay
one-half of the expense of erect-
ing said bridge. We believe this
to be a wise move on the part of
our court, as the river has always
been a great bug-a-boo to traffic
in general. The contract calls
for the completion of the bridge
by December 2Sth. Besides con-
tracting for this bridge the court
also purchased two road graders
which will be used on our pub-
lic highways. We are indeed
glad to see our court taking so
much interest in the improve-
ment of our roads, as good roads
are one of (be most essential ele-
ments to the upbuilding of a
