The Bernice-Lillie Road Districts have received a new caterpillar and road machine with which to build and maintain the roads of the two districts.

In this machinery is power enough to grade up and build roads almost in first class condition in one of two trips over a piece of road. The machine is one of the Adams make and has a twelve foot blade, with the latest attachments, making it very easy to operate and at the same time do fine work. The caterpillar is of horse power, making plenty power to take care of the work expected of it.
