SPENDING MILLIONS FOR ROADS.
While the calamity howlers are enjoying themselves in other parts of i
the country, the South is making strides in seven-league boots, laying the
surface foundation for future development-good roads.
North Carolina has voted $75,000,000, Alabama $5,000,000.
South Carolina is trying to get through an expenditure of $50,000,000
for road work.
Florida tackled the job by counties. Hillsboro county voted $3,000,000.
Duval county voted $3,000,000, and now enterprising business men are
asking $5,000,000 to build roads and link up the county system.
Tennessee is voting on a $75,000,000 bond issue, and has spent $883,000 t
In the last few months. I
Georgia has increased its funds $780,000. Kentucky has contracts I
estimated at $900,000, Louisiana $932,000, and Mississippi $844,000. 1
Good roads spell prosperity in capital letters. The trivial amount of C
extra taxation involved is not worthy of consideration spread out as it c
always is over so many years. I
It would be well itf the town and village officials in every community b
were to get an inspiration from what sections are doing, and begin work
ot local road improvement. a
Certainly wisdom calls for local authorities to ask a half dozen of t
the most intelligent and interested citizens to act as d Planning Com- I
mission whose duty it shall be to study the local situation and to lay plans 2
and make recommendations' for road development. Once the people see 9
what improved streets will do for them and learn how they can be financed a
with slight burden they will get behind the movement. Every toot ot im- a
proved street is an insurance policy guaranteelng the increased value of '
farms, real estate and business.
There, little girl, don't cry,
They have lengthened your skirt, I know,
And the dimpled knees and the calves ope sees
Are things that you mustn't show.
But longer styles will soon pas by,
There, little girl, don't cry.

The "Decline and Fall of the Roman

knowledged to be one of the greatest
masterpieces of historical compoeition.
The first volume was published In 177t,
and had an Immediate saccess. The
second and third volumes appeared In
1781. and the anal publication of the
entire work in six volumes took place

ROADSIDE TREES IN PERIL
Milwaukee Newspaper Condemns the
Vandalism Which Threatens
Beauty of Highways.
Here and there the natural beauty
a- of Wisconsin is in constant danger,
laments the Milwaukee Journal. In
ion particular trees growing along coun
try highways are frequently cut down
or at least disfigured. Billboards, for
nez example, line the roads and mar the
landscape and only recently a magnifi
cent maple tree that adorned a trunk
wn- highway, which extends westward
rfrom Milwaukee, was cut down In or
der that one of these blatant messages
of crass commercialism might attract
still more attention.
Billboards, however, are only one
of the things that mar the beauty of
the highways. An electric power com
pany Is planning to despoll or destroy
trees along a country roadside east
of Waukesha In order to extend a
power line. There are few of these
tree-lined roads in Wisconsin and their I
