Contractor Larkin Says Ho IJus
- Work for Fifty Trams to Start
In TonioOon Morning.
Thos. Larkin of the Larkin Con-
struction company this afternoon
stated that if the files will permit
he expects to have a hundred'
trams at work on the good roads in
this district before this week is
over. He stated that he wants fifty
or seventy-ftye teams' to start in
tomorrow at hauling gravel from
the Wilson pit to the work on tlie
road running out by the county
farm. Owners of te.anu may report
to the office, upstairs corner Crock-
ett and Houston streets. He said
that he prefers to give Grayson
county teams the benefit or the
work and as nearly as possible
teams in roads improvement district
No. 2, because these are the people
that must pay the tax.
There have been many inquiries
at the office recently as to when
the teams would be put to work.
Arrangements for work have pro-
gressed steadily and along substan-
tial lines. The company is thor-
oughly responsible and partly for
the reason of its sound financial
standing it secured this contract.
Today a thirty horsepower Ohio
tractor roller was moved out to
the work on the road by the county
farm. It is a gigantic piece of ma-
chinery, weighing ten tons. It trav-
els about 2 % nii'es per hour and
will do twenty miles per day easily.
Of course in actual work on the
road, where the same roadbed is
gone over severa’ times, the finish-
ed road is not so great.
B. B. Mead of San Antonio is the
export here to install the roller in
use and H. H. Stone is to be the
engineer with the company during
the road construction. ‘
Everything is getting along nice-
ly. A considerable portion of road
has be< n graded. C. M. Fo'ey, who
has the contract for concrete work,
is getting along a'l right with the
bridges. However, he is being
slightly delayed oil account ef steel
to reinforce the concrete. The only
tiling that seems to be working in
opposition to progress now is the

The bacteriologist lias discovered a
