ofnrettv ladles and bandsomegentlemen lent
tbe pleasure of tbe^r presence to me occasion
and all were glad to meet tbe beloved kins
women of tbe honored hosts.
Tbe visiting young ladles came from the
snow>capped hills of Virginia. They came
from a colder atmosphere to tbe more genial
rays of a more Southern sun. They came
among warm hearts, where they are welcomed
Into hospitable homes and we hope
* that they may In return love both oar warm
hearts and oar bospltable homes.
A lew ye?ri? ago one ol our prettiest yonng
ladles captured t"elr brother. Mr. Frederick

The husbaud is the pastor of a

never had debt?, and their boys and

Uses of the Foot-Bath.
Have you ever tried treating a cold
by means of a foot-bath ? Take a thorough
foot-bath, to which mustard has
added. By " thorough " ia meant tnat
the feet shall be placed in water which
will come high up the calves of the
legs, and the water as hot as the feet
can bear. Then, by continually adding
hot water, the foot-bath should be
kept as hot as can bo borne for twenty
minutes. At the same time hot water
should be drunk freely. The patient
is ready for bed, after drying the feet
thoroughly. Cover up warmly with
extra clothing, and place something
warm to the feet. If there is a cough
and pain i.n the chest a hot application
may be given to the chest after the
T? monn <*aooa thin frpufmpnt. Will
suffice to break the cold. If not, repeat
at least every day. Should the
cold not yield to one or two treatments
try fasting. Not necessarily entire
abstinence from food, but the eating of
a limited amount of very simple food.
Headaches will yield to a foot-bath
without other treatment. Try it. If
the head is hot wring a towl from cold
water and wrap around the bead.
Habitually cold feet are treated by
the alternate hot and cold foot-baths.
Persist in the treatment every night,
or both night and morning.
Some people suffer with difficulty in
going to sleep. The brain is active,
and because of the multitude of
.thoughts sleep will not come. A
warm foot-bath may be all that is
A tepid foot-bath will be found very
restful and quieting to the tired nerves
of a busy housewife. She will resume

The warm foot-bath is found helpful
to the weak heart.

a short time in a moderately warm

UNCLE SAM'S BOADS.
AMERICA BEHIND OTHER NATIONS IN
Annual Expenditures Here and In
Enropean Countries For Good
Roads?Cost of Building Highways
In Some of Oar States.
The United States does not begin to
spend the amount of money upon Its
public highways that it costs to construct
and maintain the public roads
of England and European countries.
While this country leads the world in
Its railroads and street railways, it Is
far behind most countries across the
Atlantic In its system of public highways.
England and Wales spend annually
$20,000,000 on their roads, Ireland
$3,000,000, France $37,500,000,
while the United States, the pioneer of
all nations in public improvements, the
leader of the world in devising and
perfecting plans to add to the comfort
and welfare of mankind, lags in the
'nro with thf> disgraceful record of
spending $40,000 upon its federal plan
of public road Improvement
This does not include, of course, the
annual expenditures of the various
states of the Union, says the Buffalo
Express. If these sums were included,
the comparison would not be so unfavorable,
for there will be expended this
year close on to $10,000,000 throughout
the country for the betterment of public
highways. Moreover, the outlook
for the future is exceedingly bright
The possibilities are that by the end of
another decade the combined expenditures
of the federal government and
the various states will equal $50,000,000
a year for the construction and
maintenance of public highways.
There are fully 200 good roads organizations,
national, state and county,
in the United States.' The association
that Is doing the most work for
the betterment of highways throughout
the country is that known as the
American Roadmakers. The membership
of this association Is limited to
ten Influential men in each state, one
of the provisions of Its constitution being
that there shall not be more than
ten members from each state.
When New Jersey, which was the
pioneer state in the good roads movement,
first began to improve its roads,
It cost $10,000 per mile. They are now

being constructed for $2,000 to $5,000
per mile, most of them costing only
$2,500. This Is due to the greater knowledge
and practical experience gained
by the road builders as well as by the
use of improved machinery and methods.
In Michigan, Ohio and other western
states roads are being constructed
at a much less figure, some of them
costing not more than $1,000. As might
be expected, these roads are not as
durable as those upon which a greater
amount of money is expended.
New York pays about $5,000 to $7,000
a mile and builds a very thoroughly
constructed road out of crushed stone
under the direction of the state engineer
and in accordance with the state
aid plan, which provides that the state
shall pay 50 per cent of the cost of construction
of the roads, 35 per cent lfl
paid by the county and 15 per cent by
the town in which the road is improved.

proving their highways and have long
been recognized as among the most
progressive states of the Union in this
regard, each expending $500,000 a year
on the improvement of its roads.
The state of Georgia is, perhaps, the
most progressive among the southern
states. For a number of years it has
employed a large amount of prison labor
in the construction of its roads,
using prisoners, both black and white,
in crushing stone and in constructing
the roads. The system of employing
prison labor has been so successfully
carried out that it has been adopted
in other states.
A most interesting good roads campaign

Michigan by Senator Earle. The senV?

Advice From an Authority on the
