GOOD ROADS PROVE BENEFIT
Improved Plghwrys Increase Attend
ance at Rural Schools States Ma
king Grectest Prosres.
Whilp It fs true that various factors
contribute to increase or decrease the
iiltfiidar.ee nt schools In given Fc-etions
cf tbe country, it Is worthy of com
ment that l:i Ji states h'vinn a high
percentage or lnipnmd roads a much
larger percentage of the etud.-nts en
rolled regularly atteid the schools
than in the states having a small per
centage of Imiiroved road.. In live
eastern and western states, which
have a large rnile,t;i of improved
roads, the averasa attendance of en-
rolled pupil la 1908-9 was t0 per cent,
while In fotfr southern states m.d cue
northwestern state, which ape noted
for bad reads, the average attendance
for the san e year was 34 per cent

imp'oved, while in the latter group of
states there are only lVs per cent ot
the roads Improved.
That improved roads would benefit
our country school system there would
seem to be no doubt Improved roads
make It possible to consolidate or cen
tralize the schools and to establish
graded scbcols In the rural districts.
Such schools centrally located will ao
commodate all of the children withlu a
radius of from four to five miles. In
many communities having the advan
tage of improved roads commodious
buildings have been provided. Aore
competent teachers have been em
ployed, and modern facilities for teach
ing have been supplied at a minimum
cosL For Instance, since the Improve
ment of the main highways in Durham
county. North Carolina, the number of
school houses has been reduced from-
. C5 to 42, of which 17 are graded and
have two or more rooms and employ
two or more teachers.
- There are at the present time about
two thousand consolidated rural
schools In the United States. It ap
pears that Massachusetts, Ohio and
Indiana have made the greatest prog
ress alang these lines, and it is rather
significant to note that in these states
about one-third of the roads have been
improved. According to statistics of
the agricultural department thero was
expended In 1S99, $22.11$ in Massachu
setts for the conveyance of pupils to
consolidated schools, but ia 190S the
expenditure for this purpose amounted
to (292,213. In Indiana the expendi
ture for this purpose in 1904 amounted
to S5,000, while In 1908, $290,000 was
expended. This expenditure for trans
portation rcCectS, in a general way,
the extent and progress of this new
educational movement. It must not bo
understood that this Is an additional
burden, aa the expenditure thus mado
is saved in other directions.
BENEFIT OF IMPROVED ROAD
Among Many Other Things It Attracts
Investors Looking for Advan
A long stretch of Improved road la
one of the t?tt advertisements a state
can have. It attracts a class of tour
lets who arc able and willing to pay
for entertainment. It brings investors
who are looking for advantageous lo
cations. It Includes agricultural inves
tigation and consequent immigration
and investment, not only along the lino
of the road, but In other accessible
sections. It changes, by the sheer
force of publicity, backward localities
into progressive ones; erhances val
ues, and brings into general notice re
sources .whlca had only been known
locally;' or, If known, not appreciated.
The advantages which such stretches
of main roads cause to accrue are ad
vantages which affect the entire state,
as well as the localities themselves.
It should, therefore, be assumed as a
principle that such main roads should
be built. In v.holo or In part, by the
Ctate; that their management and
maintenance tbould be iu tho bauds
or tho ctate cut Verities.

ADVAWTA3E CF THE AKuC
Goat Is Much Hardier Than Cheep. Not
So Liable to Di:c.Kc and Eats
Greater Variety o' Feed.
In the moui.taiuuus rogions of Asi
atic 1'urkey U the ancient city of An
gora, rtl.'braled for ihu lons-!i..ii-1
goats brd iu that vicinity. Ilera Au

of goats, roaches its pcrfKciiuu. '1 Uo
liiicness of Us hair and tlis remark
able fact tliat niafly oihr-r antui.il:i iu
that region pocstsa long, silky huirlns
been a--;cribed by some authorities to
tome peculiarity in the atmosphere,
the altitude, or roll.
At the iriTbi nt time there are iu tho
Vnited Siatts between 3U0.0O0 end
400.000 angoras of pure blood or high
strain, and yet the domestic product
of uiohnir does not equal the home
demand by a largo amount. Many dol
lars' worth of mohair Is Imported an
nually into the I'nited States, and still
in Texas alone there is sufficient moun
tain land to raise not only all tho mo
hair now imported, but enough to ex
port several million dollars' worth an
nually, says Farm and Ranch.
There arc four profits to the Angora
the mohair, the increase, tho fertil
izer and tbe land they free from brush
and weeds. There is a wide difference
between the shearing weight and the
shearing value of goats. Some will
bhear as much cs lu pounds of mohair
per year, but tho average lor tho
Uuitrd States is about two end ouc
half pounds. Seme mohair brings aa
much as $'1.00 per pound, but the av
erage is cbaut Zi cents per pound. Mo
hair ransicg from 12 inches V 20
inches in length brings from $3 to
J6.E0 per pourd, and Is used to make
doll's hair anJ :lzn.
Mohair under 12 inchc in lcusUi

ter, and rauj'.cs from 35 to r,!f ".Ulnar 1
;-ei- h. .4, bt't there Is ne-ie ii.o-u,
an Angora shearing $1 per head than
iu a sheep shearing $1.50 per head, be
cause the goat la longer lived, is much
hardier, is not liubla to disease; the
goat eats a greater variety of feed, will
come to the sheds at night, and has
many advantages over the sheep.
MACHINE FOR MIXING FEEDS
Effective Device Invented by Canadian
In Form of Semi-Cylindrical Cas
ing Cover Is Removable.
An effective feed mixer has been de
vised by Robert II. Drlpcoll of Ayl
uier, Quebec, Canada. The Inventor
provides a hopper in the form cf a
seml-cylindriccl casing having a re
movable cover end an outlet through
the bottom opposite the opan top and
closed by a sliding door. A shaft Is
journaked In the euds of the rasing,
which may be driven by a crank or
belt. Through this bhaft are fastened
rods pointed at the ends! These rod3

them. An endless feed carrier is jjur
naled to one side of the feed-mixer
for the rapid transportation of feed
ingredients to the mixer.
Good Ration for Sows.
A good ration for brood sows U
corn or maize, 80 per cent., and good
raltalfa hay, 20 per cent by weight.
Sometimes sows will eat enough al
falfa hay if it Is placed in racks in
the pens. Ifthey will not cat enough
In this way, it Is a geed plan to grind
it finely and feed it with cornmcnl
in the form cf a thick slop. Tho man
gels or sugar beets had better not
bo made a part of the regular raticn,
but fed as a conditioner;, for such
purposes they are excellent.' Tho
amount does not make so much dif
ference. If you have plenty of them,
throw over what the sows will clean
up readily after they have had other
feed. It will not be necessary to cut
the beets or mangels.
