Cun1ectiCut s high\way conis1lJI
er, James Ii. .1acdoiald, who is one
of the best informed good roads men
in the country, pledges the support
of the American Road Makers to any
feasible plan for improving the roads
of the nation. 1In his address, read
before the recent convention, held
by the New York and Chicago Road
association and the Erie chamber of
commerce, at Eric, Pa., he said:
Perhaps there is no section of
highways in the United States that is
quite so much an important tactor as
the road proposed from New York
city up to and through Poughkeepsie,
folowing the Hudson, with all its
historic interests on through the
southern tier of New York and out
through the Panhandle of Pennsyl
vania, thence through to Chicago,
Ill. Towns, cities and counties are
all traversed in a very interesting
way; the town and the county are
each passed through in their turn.
Five states and thirty-three counties,
with a total population of nearly
twelve million of people, are assist
ed into pleasant travel, thus making
a great moving panorama of inter
est when this road has been improv
ed as it is proposed.
The great lakes of Illinois and
Michigan, this great necklace of
pearls, the millions of tons of freight
moving upon their broad and expan
sive bosoms, represent in no uncer
tain way the largest commercial in
terests in the United States. With
the introduction and the building of
this great $Ioo,ooo,ooo canal, which
has just been successally inaugura
ted under the able direction of E. A.
Bond, there will be an added impetus
to the question of waterways and
For quite a number of years th
trend of the popular mind has been
the improvement of railroads, so that
it is quite possible today to find your
self comfortably seated in a Pullman
vestibuled car carried along at the
rate of a mile a minute. Indeed, we
find on the other side a train recently
run at the rate of 140 miles an hour,
and it is quite frequent that we hear
of the ioo-mile an hour train. This
will satisfy, I think, the most active
business mind. We have our ocean
steamners crossing the Atlantic in less
than six days. With the introduction
of this canal, which was superseded
orig:aally by railroads, we are now,
turning our attention to this question
of improving the main arteries of our
highna~ys throughout the country.
It seemis to me that our country oc
cupies one of the most prominent po
sitions today of any country in the
world. and we only need improved
highways to stand first among the
'nations of the earth. In making an
analogy I have in mind the time
when I was quite a young man, that
grandma was not only herself very
busily engaged, but she had also the
children of the household busy, mak
ing patches and putting those patches
into blocks and after she had got to
gether a large number of blo:ks, then
-,she put in the strips which united and
made a perfect whole or outside cov
ering for the quilt. This country has
been sewing together for the last 284
years and making the blocks for all
lines of business enterprise. Now a
perfect connection of all our large
interests would be the putting in of
man's highway. We have the very
best public service in steam and elec
irc roads and we have no peer on the
-waters of lake, river or ocean, and I
think we are ready to take up this
question of the improvement of the
main arteries of the land, the roads
of our country.
*Care of Horses' Neck.
Most farm horses suffer from abra
sions oif the skin on the necck (luring
the summer work. and this is so se
vere in many cases as to keep the
horse from doing a full day's work.
Try this plant of treating the farm
horse during the season of hard
work: After feeding the horse.,
rshf alln perspiration with a soft
)rush, or, betted still, wipe it off with
i large cloth. Then with tepid water,
ponge the head. neck and shoulders
md wipe dry with a clean cloth. If
he shoulders show indications of
reness. rub over them a little vase
1e and let it remain over night. See
:t the collar worn tits well. an(l af
takng it off wipe it thoroughli
th a damp cloth-I am! hang it where
will be thoroughly dry in t1h
It would be impossible for a law

In order to reduce stock be
fore making our annual inven
tory we have decided to inaug
urate a clearpnce sale, begin
Thursday, January 12th,
at 9 o'clock a. m., and contin
uing until we have disposed of
our surplus stock at prices
that will give all the profits to
our trade while the sale lasts.
On all Shoes, H ats, Caps,
Pants, Clothing, Win
ter Underwear and
Gloves we will allow a dis
e count of twenty-five per cent.
(25 per cent.) This will en
able the retail buyers in these
lines to supply themselves at
less than they could buy them
from the manufacturers of
these goodsTby the dozen or
.case; and farmers who have
their hands to supply during
.the summer will find it a great
saving in buying their supplies
of these goods before this sale
closes. The slump in cotton
has left us with too many goods
and this is the chance you
'have to save part of the price
Come early and get the
choice of all o fthem.
