The chain gang is gone, so now
we will have good roads. It seems
that we are to have a scrape gang
in every district. Now a scrape is
a good thing to build a dry weather
road, when you don't especially need
it. But the scrape on a clay road
is a waste of money. Just as soon
as you have a week's rain with heavy
traffic, the road goes all to pieces
and you can't tell that the scrape
has even been there. Then the scrape
must go back, waste more money,
shape up the road again, to go all
to pieces with the next wet spell.

The tendency of medical science is
toward prevefiative measures. It is
easier and better to prevent
t h a n t o cure. Pneumonia.
one pf the most - dangerous diseases
that medical men have to contend
with, often follows a cold or att-ack,
of the grip. The cold prepares the
system for the recention and d!eveloo
meret of the pneumonia germ. The
longer the cold hangs on, the greater
the danger. Tak . Chamnbe/-:in's
Cough Remedy as s n as the first in
dication of a cold appears so as to
get rid of it with the least possible
delay. It is folly to risk an attack
of pneumonia when this remedy may
be obtained for a trifle.
