Tho teaching of road building In tho
schools of tho state as a means to

In later years take moro Interest In
UiIb than- has tho present generation,
was advocated to tho State Automo
bllo association In Lincoln by C. H.
Epperson of Falrtleld, former state
"Otir future road overseers, county
offldalB, legislators and governors are
growing up within our reach," said
Mr. Epperson, "and why should wo
not begin by teaching them the things
that will help them solve tho prob.
lems of the future.' The present gen
eration has only opened up tho way
moro remalnB to bo learned and Btlll
more to bo done. Improvement can
only begin where entire communities
are united In the work and where they
are desirous of nldlng other commun
ities In completing good roads, with
Bvery other section to accomplish
lasting results, Thero can bo no bet
ter way toward partially solving' tho
problem than by rearing children who
aro In sympathy with tho move nnd
who understand most of Its phases."

IN POULTRY VALUES.
The Great State of Nebraska Is Near
Tho cackle of tho Nebraska hen haa
beon immortalized In verse nnd her'
doods of performance havo been made
bubject matter for loglslatlvo reports
in yeara gono by and well it might.'
For, according to a statement Just is-,
sued by tho Ncbraaka department of
agriculture tho valuo of poultry prod-,
uctB for tho year 1911 exceeded $43,
000,000, an exceptionally 'strong show-,
ing when it is taken Into considera
tion that tho valuo of all such prod
ucts In the entire United States was
$750,000,000. Whiio exact statistics
tiro difTlcult to obtain from all tho
states It is bolioved Nebraska ranks
well up toward tho top. Says the agri
cultural department's report:
"That tho poultry of Nebraska 1b of
some Importance Is verified by tho
fact that tho assessment of hens re
turned by tho county assessors In
1910 Is over four times aB much as
all tho diamonds found in tho state,
half as much as all tho pianos, ten
times as much as as all the cash re-,
glstcrs, nlno times as much as all the
safes, and $112,000 moro than all the
."Tho helpful hon is ono of tho
prlmo factors In reducing tho high
cost of living; tho family with a fow
dozen lions well kept, need not worry
about tho meat problem. The busy
biddies of Nebraska aro hustling her
great herds of swlno for first place
In importance of. the marketable
products of tho stato.
"Nebraska hens laid bo many moro
eggB last year than tho hens of Kan
sas that a Nebraska hen could lay
ono egg a day until sho had enough to.
hatch a brood of chickens, sit on the
eggs, hatch tho chickens and then
ovortako the Kansas hen with a sec
ond brood before tho Kansas biddy
had dono clucking over her first brood
"But Nebraska hens do hot havo to
hatch eggs; they can put In their
timo laying, for Nebraska factories
mnko annually ono-half of all tho in-,
cubatora manufactured in tho United
States and Canada. Thoso incubators
aro sent by carloads all over the civil
ized world, and fluffy chicks by the
millions belt tho globo as a tribute to,
tho Inaternal Industry which has its
headquarters In Nebraska.
"While NebraBkn la selling its vast
amount of poultry products annually,
tho great state of Oregon Is buying
three million dollars worth from Ne
braska and other states. The Btato
superintendent of public instruction In
Oregon Is endeavoring to enlist tho
Bchool children In tho problem of can
celling this deficit by having every
child In tho schools of Oregon be
tween tho nges of G and 16 keep a
dozen hens." If Nebraska school' chil
dren wero to do that they would make
Nebraska tho greatest poultry market
In tho world."
State Highway Commission.
Tho Stato Automobile association,
which held tho opening session of Its
annual meeting here, went on record
as favoring tho creation of a state
highway commission and tho appro
priation of such money as would ac
crue from half a mill levy to aid in
tho movement for better roads. Mr. G.
E. Farisoo of Mlnden declared that
Nebraska farmers now pay1 an average
of sixteen cents per ton per mllo to
transport thoir goodB In and out of
Requisition for Cheeks.
Governor Aldrlch has issued a re

Tho board of public lands and

the advisability of creating a deficit
by furnishing tlio two now buildings

of $24,000 must bo entnlled to connect
