RURAL ROUTES AND ROADS.
Postal Department Has Become Strong
Agency of Highway Improvement.
The marvelous development of the
rural mail service shows how greatly
the people prize this daily blessing and
indicates that they would lie extreme
ly reluctant to give it up Mr be de
prived of it for any cause. This being
so, the postal department lias in its
power ro become a stronger agency
for highway improvement.
There are certainly few communities
thai would give up their mail service
rather than Improve their roads, and
if the department should see tit to put
H up t<> the people where the roads
are bad. give them the choice of mak
ing better r<>a.!s or doing without mail,
it seeiiis that they would, in common
parlance. "get busy." The department
has sent out a number of bulletins
containing a warning, and these are
said to have been partially effective.
I 'a it Of the last bulletin issued to post
masters contained this:
"You are directed to inform yourself
with reference to the condition of
roads and bridges on the rural routes
out of your office, and if you find that
they require improvements you should
present the matter in the strongest and
most positive way to the patrons and
road officials, informing them that im
provements must be made as soon as
practicable. If. after a reasonable
time has elapsed, the improvements
have not been made or started, you
will report the fact to this oflice in or
der that action may be taken looking
to the discontinuance of the service.
"The department is not immediately
concerned in elaborate road improve
ments, but in the interest of the best
service to the largest number of pa
trons it must insist upon roads being
kept in good repair, the lack of which
is usually due to improper drainage
and unsuitable grading and surface
work, which can be easily and cheaply
accomplished by timely work and the
regular use of the split log drag or
TO TEACH ROAD BUILDING.
Colleges In Three States Establish
Chairs of Good Roads.
The board <>f directors of the Texas
Agricultural and Mechanical college
lias decided tt> establish a chair of good
roads. The state of Washington and
the stale of Virginia have done the
same. The Little Rock (Ark.) Gazette,
nothing this, hopes that the next Ar
kansas legislature will do the same
"Jf we had all over this state men
who have been taught to build roads
we should soon have better roads," it
says. ".Some of the graduates in road
building would devote themselves to
the engineering profession of highway
constructiun and maintenance.
"Others, in various lines of business
and especially in farming, would be
useful to their communities In the mat
ter of highways. How fortunate, for
Instance, would a township be to have

cost her $625,000,000.
Scientific road builders are concen
trating attention on securing a road
surface that will withstand the tre

Nothing damages an improved road
as much as a heavy machine driven at
a high rate of speed. Little or no
damage is inflicted by automobiles
moving at any rate up to twenty miles
an hour. Beyond that the damage la
It is claimed that nine-tenths of the
dust produced by man comes from his
streets and highways. The roads.
therefore, have been dubbed the "•na
tional dust factory." The dustless
road is an ideal of builders. Dust not
only means that the improved road is
wearing away, but it is highly injuri
ous to public health, to stock and to
crops iilun;.: the way.
Bill Nye's Good Roads Sermon.
"Our wagon roads throughout the ,
country," said Bill Nye, "are a dis
grace to civilization, ami before we
undertake to supply underwear and
sealskin covered Bibles witb liexible
backs to the Africans it might be well
to put a few dollars into the relief of
galled and broken down horses that ,
have lost their health on our miserable j
highways." — Extract From "State's
What It Means to Farmers
It is essential that farmers know
how and what crops to produce most
profitably, but what is the use of
knowing that unless the fanner has a
road over which he can haul bis bar
vest? Why save money by practicing
farming methods and lose ui< nej in
hauling produce to market?
