one end of the sack and I'll cat ry
it too. My children are no better
than I am and I have made out
w th these roads aud so can they.
But listen your children are not
going to make out with such roads
They will have goods roads and if
you live long enough you may get
to travel over them. I'm glad to
see any article on good roads. I
know peopl- are still becoming
interested more and Rockcastle
will in the near future not be
ashamed to have strangers pass
over her roads. I am spending
the winter in Florida where they
have fine roads. One horse can
more than do the work of two on
bad roads. The climate here is
fine and the people are lovely.
The country level, people have a
good easy time in general. Plenty
of oranges cheap, winter gardens
all green with mustard, lettuce,
onions, beets, turnips, cabbages
and kale. Farmers are plowing
and getting ready to plant vege
tables for early marketing. We
have no mud at any time, all sand.
You would say and lots ot negroes.
Yes there are a good many but
are the real ones. No mulatoe and
they certainlv do know their place.
They are like I use to know' them
when I was a child. A 'servant
in a servants place. They are a
real necessity here. They are
honest. People tell me I need
never lock a door at night or on
leaving home. They all work and
earn their living and they know
they must do the right thing,
otherwise they know the cor se
quence. I like Florida and
especially the people I have mot.
We live within two miles of the
largest orange grove in the world.
The lumber and turpentine busi
nesses are good here and truck
gardening s carried on extensively
aU over he. state, giving is pretty
high- Board from 18 to 25 and 30
dollars per month. Strange to say
no one Ukes to 'keep boarders.
Every thing is higher here than
at home. Any one can do their
own work and live as cheap here
as anywhere. Very truly,

We are getting ready for the greatest

a result of these preparations, we must
clean out all winter goods It is our
rule not to permit goods to remain
from season to season. At the. close
of the season the goods must go. . Prices

our stock. You cannot afford to miss

will hurry the organization. We
want it understood that Brodhead
