MONEY FOR GOOD ROADS.
Less government money for
battleships and useless political
nqvy yards, and more for improve

Every day the wisdom of this
proposal is appealing more

the farmers in all parts of the

short time until agitation of the
subject will find expression in
The champions of road im
provements do not want, and do
not demand that any pew expense
be saddled on the. government
treasury. Their program is the
essen;e of simplicity and reason
ableness, lor all they ask is that
the government use money which
is being wasted to give the nation
The federal government of this
country has never taken much in
terest in road building, and in
this respect is behind all foreign
nations, everyone of which has
roads which put us to shame.
Wagon roads, like waterways and
railways are the commercial
arteries of a nation. They must
be in good condition if the com
mercial health of the country is
to be good. Improved loads, as
compared to unimproved roads,
Jessen the distance from Farm to
railway station more than one half.
Land ten miles from a shipping
station on bad roads, will rent
and sell for an almost double
amount if the roads aie made
good in every way.
Tne Good Roads idea is gradu
ally becoming of greater political
significance, and therein lies the
hope of the friends of the move
ment, because whatever action is
is taken must have its source in

A GOOD ROADS G ATHKftlNG.
Paducah is arranging for a good
roads day celebration to be held
on Tuesday, May 14 and will set
a barb icue dinner and invite al'
Western Kentucky "to join in the
festivities as well as in the more
solid exercises of the occasion.
Arrangements have been made
for a lecture and roadbuilding dem

different parts of the . oui t v.
Besides stimulating the good roads
movement generally in Western
Kentucky it is planned to make
the gathering a starting point for
the renewal of operations on the
Jefferson Davis highway.
Western Kentucky is coming to
the front handsomely for good
roads. In nearly every county in
that section of the State highway
improvement is a live issue and
the people, in increasing numbers
are demanding better thoroughfares
In most of the couuties there is
plenty of first class road-making
material, and the cost of con
struction is smaller than is the
case where such material is lack
ing and must be transported lor
The Jefferson Davis highway
project is one of the most ambitious
plans that have been evolved in
Kentucky for a throughfare of
more than'local importance. The
preliminary surveys have been"
made and all the counties inter
ested have shown a commendable
disposition 10 aid in the enter
prise. It has been largely respon
sible for the general awakening
on the subject of good coads in
the "Pennyrile" region and in
Jackson's Purchase. The Paducah
convention should give it such an
impetus as to leave no doubt of
it? splendid materialization.

Richmoud Virginia: Admitting
Roosevelt's power of brutal appeal
we shall await with confidence
the verdict of the great American
jury concerning two public men
who, did they attempt privately
what they do politically, would
be ostracised on the streets of
any self-respecting community.
Mobile Register: The President
lowers the office when he goes
scrambling for his retention of it.
Some things are not worth having
Life, for example, where honor is
lost, or office that must be obtained
by a sacrifice of self respect.
New York Post: Fancy giving
the Democrats such a campaign
document as would be the speech
ot a Republican President de
nouncing the Republican nominee
as a man without a shied of
character! This, in the political
aspect, is the extraordinary, even
appalling, plight into which the
Republican party has been plunged
by the bad faith and the mad am
bition and the perilous Obsessions
of Theodore Roosevelt.
Pittsburgh Post: The contest
between President Taft and Theo
dore Roosevelt has reached the
acute stage. They are facing the
crucial test, each with a deter
mination to destroy the other, and
at the same time the old party is
crumbling at both extremes. It is
like a race for the distinction of
winning credit as .chief scuttler
of the ship; and. no matter who
wins, the 'ship will be scuttled,
just the same.
Cleveland Plain Dealer: It
marks a breaking down of tra
dition, a new deal in politics; it sets
a precedent in forcing a President
seeking reno.mination to go forth
strenuously into the fight to show
by what right he demands the
honor. Whatever may happen,
this is better than for the people
to allow steam roller to do.
their thinking for them.
New York Globe: Whatever
the result of the Chicago convent
ion, it is evident the Presiaent
has lessened the likelihood oi his
reflection. His latest venture is
another political blunder. - Abuse
of Roosevelt by any one. does not
help Taft; abuse of Roosevelt by
Taft himself certainly does not
help Taft. '

Dont Deny Yourself The Pleasure of Having
Goob Piano Music in Your -Own Horne
The piano is the greatest of all pleasure instruments for the home
and it is no longer necessary to be an accomplished musician in order
to play it.
Human Ingenuity has made it possible for anyone to play a piano
by means of perforated music rolls thus eliminating years of tedious
practice--and placing the responsibility of correct playing on the piano
rather than on the pianist.
Has every device necessary to make the piand "human," butvou will
realize this only when you hear it played. -That is why we want you to
