They Arc Road Makers, While Narrow Tires
Arc Road Destroyers A Pointer
For City and County.
The Market Basket J
It is frequently claimed that roads in
the United States, instead of getting bet
ter are constantly getting worse, and
when the reason is asked the explana
tion is made that the damage done to ex
isting highways by the use of narrow
tires is far greater than the improvement
made by the semi-annual effort at fixing
Without entering into a discussion of
this, there is no denying that a heavily
loaded wagon with narrow tires leaves its
tracks on the highway, and the depth of
these tracks depends upon the character
of material of which the road is built, the
width of the tires and the weight of the
load. Whenever a loaded wagon be
comes stuck it is due to the fact that the
road is too soft and the tires too narrow
for the load on the wheels. Water and
narrow tires are the two causes which
contribute to ruin the best roads. They
aid each other in the work of destruc
tion. The rut formed by a passing wagon
forms a trough for the rain, which, in
stead of running off to the side, as it
would do on a hard, smooth surface,
sinks into the ground. The next wagon,
finding the ground softened, digs its
wheels deeper into the surface, and so
the demoralization and destruction con
tinues. This suggests one of the strongest ar
guments in favor of the use of wide tires.
Wide tires are road makers; narrow tires
are road destroyers. Wide tires roll and
harden the road surface, and by their
use every loaded wagon can he turned
into an effective road roller. Every wagon
which to-day helps to cut up the roads
could be utilized for their improvement,
for nothing So much tends to the mak
ing of good roads as continual rolling of

AGAINST GOLD STANDARD.
Ex-Governor Eskridge, a Kansas Republi
can, Denounces the Policy That
Mokes Trusts. No Ilopo
Under That Policy.
Former Governor O. V. Eskridge, of
Kansas, editor of the Emporia, (Kan.)
Republican, heretofore a strong partisan
paper, in Fridayls issue takes a radical
stand against the gold standard, and haB
aroused much discussion among the lead
ing Republicans of that State. He says :
- "Trusts are the legitimate offspring of
the gold standard. If you will get rid of
the eflect you must removo the cause.
Trusts have been formed, are being form
ed and will be formed. Nothing will
stop them but a change in the financial
policy of the country. All the small in
dustries of the land are being closed out.
Competition is being destroyed, men are
being thrown out of employment in the
shop, factory and on the road. The
country is rapidly becoming impover
ished, wealth is concentrating in the
hands of the few. Interior cities are
struck with the dry rot, and. there is no
hope for the people under a gold standard
money policy. It is the parent of trusts.
It is a money policy which paralyzes in
dustry and drives the larger fish to eat
up the smaller one. The gold standard
is commercial cannibalism. It is serfdom
for the masses. It is a head wind against
all transportation lines,. It is the under
mining rat of our Republican institutions.
Don't stop to argue the question with jugglers
of figures, but tote to down it, in (he parly if
you can, out of it if you must. Country first,
Referring to the wealth of the Rocke
fellers, Vanderbilts, Goulds, Astora and
others, he says: "If there is anything
that shows the incapacity of the people
for self-government it is a system of leg
islation under which the accumulation
of such vast sums by individuals is pos
sible." Governor Eskridge has been a prom
inent factor in the Republican party since
Lincoln's time, and this revolt has created
a sensation in Kansas politics.

WEEKLY CROP BULLETIN.
Conditions Last Week Favorable For Farm
Work Weather BureaH's Report
as to the Outlook.
The weather was very favprable for the
advancement of farm work, the first of
the week being cool and very little rain
to interfere with work at anv time. The
first two or three days were too cool for
growing crops to do well, but the latter
part was warmer and everything im
proved rapidly. Crops would be bene
fited by more rain ; this is especially true
of the northern and eastern portion of
the State. v
Wheat has done fairly well, but the
prospect is not flattering for this crop.
Complaint is made that it has headed too
low, and in some localities the Hessian
fly is doing Eome damage and in some
places rust is injuring it to a limited ex
teat. Oats are doing well. Clover, grass
and pastures are excellent.
Corn ia mostly planted, except on bot
tom land that has been too wet to work
until now; that already up is doing fairly
well. The cool weather during the early
part of the week checked its growth and
turned it yellow, but the present warm
weather is bringing it out all right.
There is some complaint of cut worms,
but no serious injury baa resulted so far.
In the western and central portions of
the State quite a part of the tobacco crop
has been set out and ia generally doing
well. In the eastern part the plants and
ground are ready and favorable, showery
weather only is needed to complete the
work. Some damage to the young plants
by grasshoppers is reported.
Gardens are in good condition. The
prospect for fruit is not very encouraging.
Apples and pears are dropping badly.
Early cherries and strawberries are ripe.
Strawberries are very fine and a big crop
is being marketed. Irish potatoea are
promising and sweet potatoes are doing
well. Hemp is growing very slowly.
Prizes For Neat Lawns.
Springfield, O., May 29. The organi
zation of the' City Improvement League
recently has had a good effect in one
way at least. The Board of Public Af
fairs has put a gang of men to work on
the streets with large brooms, and the
condition of the city is being greatly im
proved. Prizes have been offered by the
improvement League for the best kept
lawn and for the planting of trees and

To Stop Hiccough.
All you have to do is to lie down,
stretch your headjback as far as possible,
then open your mouth widely, then hold
ing two fingers above the head, well back,
so that you have to strain the eyes to see
them, gaze intently upon them and take
long full breaths. In a short time vnu
will be relieved of that troublesome hic
cough. I have tried the cure on all sorts
of cases, from the simple form to the
chronic, and it works well with all. I
remember it was given to a man on the
way to New York to consult a specialist
on his case one of six months' standing
and it cured him in a few minutes. He
turned around and said, "What do you
charge for that?" "Nothing," was the
reply, "except that you publish it to suf
ferers." 1 1
