Orders Issued for Purchase of Wagons
and Oil.

The county court yesterday ordered the purchase of two regulation oiling wagons and crude oil by the carload to oil all of the macadam roads in the county. It is estimated that the roads can be oiled at a cost of $100 a mile and that the expense wil be less than the regular repairs now required after rains and freshets. The new roads and those recently repaired will be oiled first. The two wagons will enable the surveyor to oil a mile of road a day.
