GOOD ROADS MOVEMENT.
Lively Rivalry In Congress For The
Honor of Having Been The
Father Of It.
There is the liveliest sort of rivalry
among several statesmen, says the
Washington Post, to be known as the
father of the good roads movement in
congress. Undisputed possession of
the title would mean thousands of
votes and uninterrupted tenure for
some men, just as the distinction of
fathering the irrigation law has been
a high feather in the cap of more than
one Western congressman.
Senator Latimer of South Carolina
has been seeking to "get in on the
ground floor" of the movement. It
makes no difference that Federal leg
islation for good roads, accompanied
with a fat appropriation, is years off.
The thing is immensely popular in
South Carolina. His friends in the
Palmetto State are already christen
ing him the Daddy of Good Roads.
But if Mr. Latimer should claim
that title in some places, outside of
his own State. there would be blood
on the moon. Over in the house
there is a Tennesseean of stock build
and powerful muscles, Mr. W. P.
Brownlow. who clains the good roads
movement as his child. Mr. Brown
low has been willing a long time to
fight and die for good roads. In
more than one campaign throughout
the mountains of his region, Mr.
Brownlow's powerfrl voice has been
heard in behalf of the cause. He does
not propose to surrender his laurels.
How the Army and Navy of Nation

The Japanese 'army and navy are

time of war or other emergency."

3. Second reserv'e term of five

number than the Government could

is simply to record the facts of history
as made by our fathers. We believe
the formation of camps in all our

institution where organized and to
the order itself. fany of the pro
fessors themselves will be eligible for
membership, while many are survi
vors of that grand body of Southern
soldiers, that made their fame immor
tal, to the perpetuation of whose glory
our order is dedicated. and thus may
may be established a bond of sym
pathy between teacher and taught. the
two elements of the college commun
ity, and the institution itself thus uni
fied, is strengthened. Again it can
be but an ennobling and inspiring in

them to take the leaders of the South

It is said that seeds have been
found in Egyptian tombs which,
though thousands of years old, still
preserved their vitality. However,
in planting for profit, it is wiser to
demand seeds of a later crop.
Seeds can't be too fresh, which
means that you must have those
grown last year. There is one
grower you can depend upon to
supply them, this is i
