Work the Roads Early.
How about rniul working? The
y Times just cannot help but .keep
harping on our roads. They are
now passable anil but little in
terest seems to be made inani
. test. The old saying "no use to
pray after the devil conies" is ap
plicable to road working. No
use to complain of bad roads af
ter they come round in the win
ter. "Prepare for war in time
of peace", should be our cry.
War on bad roads during the
summer time and as early as pos
sible. Crops will soon be oil"
hand, and as soon after this as
possible work should begin. If
we can work our roads in .July
and have them well drained for
the winter and in a good ovul
shaped condition, and of reason
able width we will find that we
will not have such miserable
mud holes next winter. We will
also find that our roads will get
to their best so much quicker
next Spring too. In working our
roads this fall the road drag
should be brought very promi
nently into use as the road drag
will do so much more work with
the same amount of labor than
can be done in any other way. Un
der any and all conditions what
work is done on our roads should
be done as soon as possible so
they may become well packed
down before the fall rains and
freezes come. One authority on
.,,., . rottd working eay ealtwor
on dirt roads after June is worse
than no work at all but we do
not believe that because we have
seen very efficient and effective
work done to dirt roads in July
and August. However, it is true
enough that the earlier the work
is done the better.
Mrs. Silas llammons continues
very low and it is thought she
cannot last much longer.

We hope to see a full attend
ance at all the country schools
Monday and this attendance be
kept up throughout the. full
term. Hoys and girls should re
member that now is the time for
them to get un education, and an
education connot be gotten by
goinsi to school one day or week
and remain away two. Kvury
day going to school is what
counts. There is no excuse in
Kentucky for a young man or
girl growing up without some
thihgof an education. Hegiu now
to acquire this by beimr at school
every day with uood lessons, and
if you chance to not like your
teacher, be as we once saw one
of our .schoolmates who fancied
his teacher didn't like him, but
said he was coining anyway just
to spite her.
