Get Fiamre* Wrong.
In the Herald's leading local story
of Wednesday the statement was
made in the article dealing with the
county road situation that the county
owns “twenty-four teams” and fur-
ther that the value of the teams was
about $1,800. Judge Temple corrects
us: “The county owns twenty-four
teams of two mules each, or forty-
eight mules. These mules cost more
than $200 each, some of them costing
$500 a pair. They are easily worth
$200 a head, at a low estimation of
value. The forty-eight mules are
worth all of $9,600. There are four
outfit of twelve head each; one outfit
in each of the four districts of the
county.” * , *
