Pulaski to Mul- berry Grove extends when a very enthusiastic )oster meeting was held in th circuit court More than 300 boosters were in at- tendance and tho who the meeting were of theopinion that a hard road shoulA extend through the country and serve the farmer rather than parallel a railroad. A resolution was passed at the meeting supporting the proposition to extend the road from Mulberry Grve south to Keyesport, a distance of 15 miles more then was comtem- plated in earlier plans. The towns to be served on the pro- posed road which will be known as the 'North and South Highway ', are Keyesport, north through Mulber Grove, Nokomis, Taylorville, Mt.
