of his faithfulness and capability. On the 1st of January, 1907, he was
appointed county road superintendent of Pueblo county and in that capacity has
served continuously to the present time, being widely recognized as a most able
and trustworthy official. During the period of his incumbency rough prairie
roads have been converted into splendidly improved highways, many bridges have
