TO BRING COMFORT,
Why City Alen Should Support Local
Cooperation With federal Plan of
Good Roads in Country; United
States .eads World in Motor
If all the automobiles in this coun
try stood evenly distributed over all j
the roads of this country, there would
be five motor cars to every 2 miles of
roadl. And there are 2,457,334 miles
of public road.
If every motor ear in the United
States were loaded to its limit with
people, half the population of the
United States couldl be hauled at one
load. And there are about 110,000,000 1
people in this country: I
Getting down to boot heels and
bitulithic--just to avoid the vulgar
phrase of bedrock anti brass tacks
about 87 per cent of all the motor ve
hieles in the world are on the roads
of the United States. By estimate,
there were 7,000,000 automobiles in 1
the world on .Januarv 1, 1919. B.y
actual count. 6.146M77 of these wert 1
in the United States. Those motor
vehicles paid, in license and other
fees, $51,477,41f;. And this is exclus

priation bill to meet the Federal part
of the program. Oficials of the Bu
reau of Public Roads, United States
Department of Agriculture, point out
that this is the largest appropriation
ever made. by any government for a
:.imilar purpose, and that it will en
able the Federal and State govern
ments to carry on a road-building
program of a magnitude never ap
proached in the history of the world.
This work, it is estimated, will employ
more than 100,000 men in active road
work, in addition to the men engaged
in the production and furnishing of
roa'd-biuding materials. It affords one
of the large opportunities for profit
yb'0 employment for returned sohliers
AutomIobile Owe ers and Road Bonds
The program is a centinuing one.
The recent Federal appropriation is
for three 'years. State, county and
!ocal funds will come largely from
bonl issues. And there is where the
1;,000,000 automobile owners ought to
shine with a tremendous radiance.

Why you should use
Cardun, the ,woman's

have been shown in
thousands of letters from
actual users of this medi
cine, who speak from
personal experience. If
the results obtained by
other women for so many
years have been so uni
give Carduf a trial?
The Woman's Tonic
Mrs. Mary J. Irvin, of
Culler, Va., writes.
"About 11 years ago, I
suffered untold. misery
with female trouble, bear
ing-down pains, head
ache, numbness . . . I
would go for three weeks

to vote for road bonds. His tire and
fuel costs, as before mentioned, are
cut in half by good roads. More im
portant still, if he be a city man, as
a very large proportion of automobile
owners are, it brings what he eats to
his door at less cost. Goo I roads have
always meant something in the way of
reducing living costs, but they mean
more now that the motor truck has
come to stay-anal to expand. One
function of the motor truck is to re
lieve congestion in the neighborhood
of large cities-a congestion that has
increased during the past several
years, and that, if it continues, will
.nd to run up the cost of living.
Those are a few of the main reasons
why, from tha standpoint of self-in
terest, the city aptomobile owner
should vote for road-bond issues.
Good Roads as Military Measure
From the standpoint of duty, the
military element probably takes first
place. When it became necessary two
years ago to concentrate great num
bers of men in canton nents, it was
found that the roadways connecting
he cantonments with the surround
iun' pities were in no sense adequate.
For te most nort new roads had to be
constructed. There is always the pos
:sbility of another such emergency,
and. the only measure of insuring
facile communication is by the con
struction of surfaced roidls over which
motor tricks can oner te.
While the security of the Nation in
such an emergency might depend tnion
goo'l roads for nilitarv uses, their
servie- to the Nation would not he
confined to miltarv matters. For a
great nortion of the time during the
past two years 91) per cent of the
railroad capacity of the country was
re:uired for military purposes. The
transportation of food, fuel and the
like had to ba accomplished largely
hv means other than rail. Some hard-.
ships were entailed. The motor truck,
however, over sne-h roadls as were p~as
sable, r-endered excellent service.
When .the present road-building nro
vram is carried out i-nd the total of
:mproved roads is several times la-rrer
than at aresent, the service nossibili
ti's of the miotor trw~k will be corre-.
soondingly increased and the safety
of the Nation and the comfort of the
pepemor-e fully insured.

ONE HLUNDRED) PER CENT GAMiE,
No doubt there are varioaus kinds
'f bravery. Last summer the country
!alked a gr-eat deal about the Amer
ican soldlier's meeting death "with
smiles on their facs," and we felt
that this diisplaty of - cour-age could
never be overshadowedi. Perhaps it
eannot, but lately there has heen
reason to believe it can he eqlualledl,
at least. Hans enough thought been
given to that other- kind of courage
that bears defomity with cheerful
ness? This true incident is only one
of many that illustrates the moral
fiber that makes the American soldier
100 per cent game anud grit.
A trainload of wounded for a south
ern hospital was met at one of the
ony stations by the Red Cross women,
who, went through it, giving them aid
One, noticing the unusual pallor on
the face of a boy streched out on a
cot, unfastened a rose from her breast
and handed it to him. As the soldier
'nade, ro move to take it, she asked
him if lie did not want it, and an
other who lay near said: "Lady, you
dlon't understand, Hie wants it, but
he can't take, it, for he has no hands."
Tears came to her eyes and she
-hoked when she tried to speak. But
the first b~oy laughed and said: "Never
mind,.lady, it's all right; he hasn't
onvthing on me, for- he hasn't any
No more important work than the
