The members of Congress are di
vided into two classes, first the
gentlemen who represent country
districts, made up mostly of far
mers, the lumbermen and miners,
and second, representatives from
city districts. The members from
the country districts and especially
those from the south have been
working quite a while to try to get
the government to furnish some fi
nancial aid in maintaining and re
pairing the roads over which the
mail riders pass.
Thomas Jefferson long since rec
ognized the propriety of this as is
found in his writings with refer
ence to internal improvements of
the country roads. Henry Clay said,
"Of all the modes in which the
country can employ its surplus reve
nue, none is more permanent and
beneficial than that of internal
improvements. Fixed to the soil it
becomes a durable part of the land
itself diffusing comfort and activity
and animation on all sides," and
John C. Calhoun while secretary of
war said' "Let it not be said that
internal improvements should be
left wholly to the enterprise of the
state and individuals." A very im
portant bill is now up before con
gress, which we think will pass, in
fact it has already, we understand,
passed the h^use, in which it is pro
posed to spend irom fifteen to twen
ty-five dollars per mile per annum

Helps a Judge in a Bad Fix.
Justice Eli Cherry, of Gillis
Wills, Tenn., was plainly worried.
A bad sore on his leg had baffled
several doctors and long resisted all
remedies. I thought it was a cancer,
he wrote. "At last I used Bucklen's !
Arnica Salve, and was completely
cured." Cures burns, boils, ulcers,
cuts, bruises and piles. i'5cts at

states .transporting rural mails. We
hope that the state legislature will
also follow the example and supple
ment this amount with a like sum
and in this way, let the money act
as a sort of bait to toll the people
into having good roads. Some of
the gentlemen in the* city districts
oppose this on the grounds of what
I they call legislation in favor of one
; class against another class, and say
? further that the government has no
right to pay the state and local
communities for the use of their
property, but as was ably illustrat
ed by Mr. Lever, from this state,
they seem to forget the millions of
dollars that the government is an
nually paying to railroads, electric
and> cable cars, steamships and for
the rent of post office buildings and
j for pneumatic tube service and
house to house delivery in cities, of
mails by carriers, and they do not
seem to realize as Mr. Lever says,
that "Prosperity for the farm spells
prosperity for the cities, rural hap
piness means city contentment, the
town and country are interdepen
dent, one cannot prosper while the
other fails to do so. Secretary Wilson
estimates that it costs each person
in the United States annually three
dollars and a half on account of the
bad conditions of the roads" AND
