COST OF ROAD IMPROVEMENT
feretiiry Wilson 8h1w Thit 800,000
Miles ef Public Thorftughfar
According to Information Just mada
public by tho director of tho offlco ot
public roads, Indiana leads oil thp
Btatcs of thr Union In mllengo qt im-'
proved roads, iftost of tho Improved
roads of Indiana and Ohio arc com
posed of gravel and word, for the
most part, built by farmers in worklm?
out tho taxes. The eight loading good
roads states are: Indiana, Ohio, Now
York, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Illinois,
California and Massachusetts.
Tho states which aro loading in pro
grosslvo road building aro: Now
York,- Georgia, Washington, Missouri,
South Carolina, Alabama, Pennsyl
vania, Tennessee,' New Jersoy, Florida
.That tho natlon-wldo movement
for tho Improvomont of tho public
roads Involves a largo undertaking is
Indicated by information Just made
public by the U. S. department ol
agriculture. Secretary Wilson shows
that 300,000 miles of roads must bo
Improved beforo tho public road sys-
tem can bo considered really offlclent. j
It Is only within recent years that
tho movement for better roadB has
gained force. The, consequences of
delay are shown in tho fact that there
aro now but 190,476 miles of improved j
roads In this country. Theso Improved
roads constitute S.6C per cent of tho
total mileage cf nil public roads, Im
proved and unlmprovod. It fs flgurod
thnt tho percentage will havo to be lu
.creased to 20 before traffic can bo
moved throughout tho country with
tho minimum of wear and toar on
horse, wagons and automobiles.
Tho French system of roads, long
considered the best in tho world, was
bonded by Napolootf III. for $6,000,-
000, and something In tho neighbor
hood of $612,775,000 has already been
spent on that system. In this country,
owing to the great distances, it . Is
probable that closo to $2,000,000,000
will have to be spent beforo a proper
road system Is developed.
While tho amount necessary to per
fect a great road system seems fabu
lously large, it does not seem too largo
when it Is divided among tho various
states and spread over a period of
five, ten or fifteen years. When It
Is considered that New York state
has bonded itself for $50,000,000
and that $5,000,000 a year is now
being expended by that state, it will
bo seen that a natlon-wldo system
might soon be perfected were all
states to progress as rapidly.
South Carolina, Alabama and Flor
ida have also made great gains by
building sand-clay roads, and this Is a
very cheap and satisfactory type o'
The Window Garden Season.
The window gardener's year begins
in September, because that is the
time to bring tender plants Indoors
and because, bulbs begin to arrive
The ideal Is to have flowers indoors
every day from tho first frost of au
tnmn until the last frost of spring,
Bulbs alone will glye flowers from
Christmas to EaBter. A lltle ?2 col
lection of bulbs will give a spot of
color dally if carefuly selected and
managed, but It Is pleasant to have a
roomful of bulbs about 250 pots.
Tho most practical bulbs for Christ
mas bloom are Roman hyacinths and
the paper white ncrclssuB. Chinese
sacred HUes will also bloom then If
protected from drafts.

Asparagus Doubly Useful.
Asparagus plant is nardy. It re
quires six weeks for the seed to ger
minate arid come up. Tho young
plants may bo cultivated In rows as
other garden vegetables, and set in
permanent rows or beds this fall or
The plants are very hardy, will
stand all kinds of treatment, but will
respond liberally to good treatment,
and thrive in one place ror ten or
twenty years. The asparagus plant Is
doubly useful. -The young shoots can
bo used for food, and tho foliage
branches for decoration. Sprays of
asparagus are equaled by few other
plants for their pleasing effect ir
" Good roads aro essential to the suc
cess of tho farmer the world over,
Poor roadB are very costly; they cause
the speedy wearing out of wagons,-the
loss of animals and the failure to
market crops profitably. Good roads
mean a greater ease In marketing,
longer wear of farm wagons, more
profit and mor comfort Good roads
are not expeaalve; all roads eau be
Improved at small cost In money,, tlmf
Aveld Weed Growth.
If there any part of your garden
or fields that you do not wish to grow
vegetables or staple crops on do not
allow Jt to grow up In weeds. Weeds
are obnoxious, do not afford any profit
or pleasure to the land owner anfl rob
the soil ot Its fortuity. Sow any un
occupied parts of your land in cow
peas or other legumes. It will pay
iPoor Fall Work.
Whore the road Is plowed and
scraped up till it is so late in the fall,
tho dirt does not havo time to pack
and settle bofore it freezes, with the
result that these newly-workod spots
aro not only rough throughout the en
tire winter, but they will be soft and
difficult ot travel all next spring.
