wonderfully well. If we had under
taken to build a concrete road we
wouldn't have any road at all. And even
now a concrete road is beyond us, it
costs too much money. And even a
concrete road needs constant atten
tion or it will go to pieces. It must
have a top dressing to take the traffic,
and that wears off and must be renew
ed, and that top dressing costs as
much as as our macadam road. Our
roads would have lasted better than
they have, in some sections, if they
could have been oiled or asphalted.
But there was such a great popular
outcry against oiling because it made
them slippery, that we had to give it
Must Take Care of Them
" Our macadam roads are quite all
right for our present needs, if they are
built right and taken care of. They
must be asphalted after the first few
months of wear, and then as fast as
they show signs of ravelling out they
must be patched and kept up. In
some places they have been allowed
to go too long, and have worn thru,
there is little or no rock left. These
sections will have to be rebuilt.
Must limit Load and Speed
A load limit should be set, and a
speed limit too, if necessary. About
t tons should be the limit of weight
and perhaps 10 or 12 miles speed.
Some one asked what about steam
plows? Are they to be debarred from
the use of the roads?
Must stay Home During Heat of
In reply, Mr. Moragne said that
their travel on the roads was so in
frequent and so very leisurely, that he
didn't think they did them much harm.
The time they damaged the roads was
when they travelled over them In the
heat of the day, when the asphalt was
soft, and tore It up with their weight.
The same was true of caterpillars. The
plantations should be requested to
keep them off the roads during the
heat of the day.
Stick to Macadam And
Take Care of it
Mr. Broadbent thought that this was
a very Important matter, and he was
glad that it had come up for discus
sion. We have our belt road which is
sufficient for our needs. We must take
care of it. We don't want to talk
about concrete roads, or any other de
novo, expensive, reconstruction. We
haven't got the money to spend that
way. We have plenty of other de
mands which we must meet with our
money. We must meet the needs of
the outer districts where they have no
roads, or are wallowing in the mud.
We must take care of the roads we

The exclusive island agency for this
famous battery has just been taken by us and
we take pleasure in making the announce
ment. We fully believe that the Exide storage
battery is best adapted for the climate here.
Exide engineers have been working for
years to perfect a battery that will give
maximum service with minimum expense.
Recently the specific gravity of the acid
in an Exide was changed permitting the
battery to remain at a lower temperature
while in operation, This alone adds several
months to the life of a battery.
In the past year our battery department
has handled repairs on practically every
make of battery on the island and have
found that the Exide batteries required less
attention than any other make.
It was because of these favorable reports
on Exide Batteries that the agency was
