HATS OFF TO MISSOURI.
Said the governor of Missouri tc
the governor of Kansas, "It's a shor
time, between bumps." Whereupon
with a resourcefulness not exceedec
by the famed executives of the Caro
linas, tie Western statesmen orderet
a brace of shovels and went to work
There is a breezy, healthy, cheerfu
note to the news that the people o
Missouri pitched in to forward th(
"good roads" movement inaugurate:
by Governor Major. In setting asid<
two days for improving the roads o:
the State and requesting every abli

work on the highways, Governor Ma
jor made an appeal and found a re
sponse which makes the country
proud of Missouri.
When the call came business mer
deserted their offices and clerks drop
ped their pens. Bankers shed theii
disnitv with their coats and day la
borers rose above the necessity o
pay. Politicians ancl statesmen stop
ped figuring on the\r prospects t(
wield a pick, and convicts from th(
State penitentiary worked; side b;
side with clergymen.
At least 250,000 men worked durin;
the two appointed days. Implement
and road mending machines wer<
freely loaned to the State, and citi
zens- of the various counties contrib
uetd more than $200,000 to defray th<
necessary expenses. Governor Majo
estimates that the work accomplishe<
was worth at least $1,500,000 to Mis
This in itself is notewortnv, du
the effect of this exhibition of civi
zeal is worth more than the inone;
saved in taxes or the improvemen
in the condition of Missouri's roads
For it shows that the spirit of thi
pioneers who first brought civiliza
tion into the American wilderness i
What Missouri has done with it:
roads it can do with other and great
er things. The willingness :o forge
private affairs for public good t<
rally at the appeal of the State an:
work shoulder to shoulder for a common
object is a possession more pre
cious to Missouri than good roads
America has become the power tha'
it is today because of this very willingness.
Governor Hodge, of Kansas, swuns
a pick beside Governor Major* until
tee hinds of the two executives became
blistered and they undertood tc
steer road grading machines. Then
may be a deposition to smile at gov
errtors in overalls blistering theii
hands at the head of a road mendin?
gang; but the comoi wealths that ar<
at present praying for lockjaw o:
writers' cramp to attack their execu
tives would be willing to run thi
chance of overalls and blisters.?M
Y. Evening Sun.
The Herald and News called atten
tion to this matter in the last issu'
and suggested that it would be a gooi
thing for Gov. Blease to issue a gooi
roads proclamation and set apar
two or three days for everybody. t<
go out and work the roads.-it-would ncx
only give some good roads in Soutl
Carolina but it would help create th<
good roads spirit and that is the firs
thing we need.
Just think what a great thing i
would be, though, if every man, ol<
and Tonne:, would iust give thre<
days good honest work on the road:
in South Carolina. Suppose we tr:
What say you, governor? It woulc
help to settle a good many questions
if all the people, able to work, ir
South Carolina, could be induced tc
give three days on the public roads
at the same time.
It is a fact well known to every
one that it is a short time between
bumps on most all the roads in South
Carolina. Let us all make the distance

They are not indicative of any decrease
