The Economy of Good Road?.
Nothing brings out the benefits
of good roads more clearly than a
comparison between the cost of
transporting farm products on well
constructoed roads and on poor
roads. This comparison is often
made by good roads aUdvocates and
the truth of their statements has
never been denied, the farmers
evidently acquiescing in the mani
fest advantages of good roads,
though they are slow to support
the movement to bring about a
general and thorough improve
ment of the highways. The latest
demonstration of the saving effect
ed by good roads is made in the
annual report of the road com
missioner of New Jersey. He puts
the case in the following convinc
"It costs 9- cents per bushel to
ship wheat from Chicago to New
York, a distance of 900 miles; it
cots 3 cents a bushel to haul wheat
on a level road a distance of five
miles, and on a sandy road it would
cost 9 cents per mile to haul it.
The saving on a bushel of wheat
with good roads for a distance of
five miles would be equivalent to
that of 600 miles of transporta
tion by steamer or canal boat, or
375 miles by railroad. One mile
of good roads would make a say
ing equal to seventy-five miles by
rail rearer to the markets. It is
estimated that the cost of hauling
500,000,000 tons of farm produce
to market is $2 per ton, or just
about $1,000,000,000; it is estima
ted that about 60 per cent of this
last amount, or $600,000,000, would
be saved each year if farmers were
able to do this hauling over good
New Jersey is the most progreos
sive state in the Union in the build
ing of good roads, which is all the
more reason for making her road
commissioners estimate an accu

tunitiesior observing the difference
in the utility of an improved andt
a neglected road. His figures should
give Wisconsin farmers something
to think about.

We have reason to believe that
the movement in favor of better
roads in Louisiana, too long delay
ed, is at last to begin earnestly and
energetically. Louisiana has one
advantage from delay-that it will
profit by the experience of other
States, that it will be able to mea
sure exactly the value of good
highways and to know how they
should he constructed.
There has been a great deal of
literature on the subject of good
roads of late, and a great deal of
experience with them, and we
know their positive value, that they
are a paying investment, even when
extensively constructed, saving in
the hauling, and, consequently, in
the value of farm products mnany
times their original cost.
In a late address Prof. \\. C.
Latta, of Purdue University, gave
in brief the leading arguments in
favor of better roads, as follows:
First, good roads economize time
and force in the labor of tran: -
porting products from the farm
to the market; second, they ena
ble the farmer to take advantage
of market fluctuations in buying
and selling; third, they permit
transportation of farm products
and purchased commodities during
times of comparative leisure:
fourth, they reduce the wear and
tear on horses, harness and vehi
cles; and fifth, they enhance the
market value of real estate.
The South has suffered more
from a lack of good roads than
any other part of the country, for
the reason that it is more deficient
in railroads than other sections,
and that farm produce anti sup
plies have to he hauled a long dis
tance; and it is more backward in
good roads partly because of the
losses of the Civil War, but really
because the agaitation for better
highways has been less marked and
vigorous here than in the North

If the Democrats, Populists and
Silver Republicans were agreed
upon but one question, that ques
tion might be important enough to
justify co-operation, although the
parties differed on all other sub
jects; but those who advocate the
union of the principal reform forc
es against the common enemy,
can point not to one, but to a num
ber of reforms which are demand
ed with equal emphasis by Demo
crats, Populists and Silver Repub
First-They are unalterably op
posed to Gold mono-metalism.
Second-They demand the im
mediate restoration of bimetalism
at the present ratio by the indo
pendtnt action of this country.
Third-They oppose the retire
ment of the greenbacks.
Fourth-They oppose the issue
of paper money by National b1anks.
Fifth--They oppose the issue of
interest bearing bonds in timle of
Sikth---They favor the income
tax as a means of raising a part of
the revenue necessary to adminis

Seventh---hey favor the aboli
tion of trusts.
Eighth-They are opposed to
government by injunction.
Ninth-They are in faver of ar
bitration as a means of setthng dis
putes between labor and capital.
Here are nine issues which are
not only important in themselves,
but are now prominently before
the people. Are these reforms
worth securing? These questions

"Never stoops the soaring vulture
On his quarry in the desert,
On the sick or wounded bison,
But another vulture, watching
From his high aerial lookout,
Sees thl downward plung, and follows:
And the third pursues the second,
Coming from the invisible ether
kirst a speck and then a vulture,
Till the air is dark with pinions."
So sang the sweet poet Long
fellow in his iummortal "Song of
Hiawatha." We can't keep the
picture out of our mind as we read
in the daily paqpers that "Secreta
ry Gage is ready to issue $250,
000,000 gold bonds;" "that Hanna
was inYWall Street visiting mon
ey lmen; it is thought in regard to
an issue of bonds," "that New
York hankers have offered to loan
the government "$100,000,000 in
case of war with Spain," etc.
No sooner is a natio:1 in trouble
than the money-loaning vultures
pounce upon it. "It is first a
speck and then a vulture, till the
air is dark with pinions." Poor
Uncle Sanm, how he will be pluck
ed and plundered if there should
happen to be a tussle with Spain.
The man who will speculate off
the necessities of his government
when it is in distress is as much of
a traitor to his country as if he
were in the ranks of the enemy
with a musket on his shoulder.-

supper, as you will find enclosed.
I could have made greater vatriety
as you know, but I claim that eve
rything on my lists except tea,
coffee, spices and flavoring, have
been raised here in DeSoto parish,
Louisiana. A man near here rais
ed thirty-five bushbls of wheat to
the acre last year. I know anoth
er who makes all the sugar he
uses, and many make their own
cane syrup. My father has kept
sweet and Irish potatoes for daily
use from one crop to another. My
mother made cheese when she was
young and healthy, and she used
to halo frying sized chickens the
year round. My father liked Tex
as Farm and Ranch, and I want to
renew his subscription when the
time is out. He died Dec. 2, 1897,
and my mother and I are much be
reavd and sorrowful.
