A local artist of note tells an amusinjj
Btory of his visit to an insane asylum in
this state. Spending as much time as he
could visiting an inmate, he started down
the stairs on his way to catch the train
back in the city.
At the foot of the stairs stood a large
clock. Taking out his own watch to com
pare the time, he found there was a dif
ference of several minutes. Turning to the
doorkeeper, a young Irishman, he in
quired if the clock was right.
"Right!" said the doorkeeper." "Do you
think it would be here if it was right'"

A NATIONAL PROBLEM.
Solatlon of the Road Qaeatlon Should
Encage the Attention of
Our Beat Men.
It Is claimed by some that the build
ing of roads is strictly a local matter,
that the benefits are entirely local,
and that the whole expense should be
borne by the local committees. This is
not the view taken by the most pro
gressive countries of Europe. There
the building and maintenance of roads
is one of the important functions of
government. France, Germany and
Switzerland' are covered by a network
of the finest roads in the world. As a
result, the western half of Europe is
the pleasure ground of the world. The
revenue derived from tourists is one
of the principal sources of income for
people of nearly all classes. But with
out these good roads this revenue
could never be secured.
The aim of the people in those coun
tries is to make their grand moun
tains, their beautiful lakes, their love
ly valleys, their castles and monu
ments easily accessible by means of
fine, hard, smooth roads.
What a contrast appears when we
turn to our own country. We have
the finest scenery in the world in the
great mountains of the west, but it is
practically inaccessible. Except as
they get glimpses of it from car win
dows, the grandeur of our mountains
and canyons, and the beauty of our
mountain lakes, streams and valleys
are a sealed book to the general trav
eling public. And this will always be
the case so long as steep, stony moun
tain trails are the only means of
travel beyond the railway lines. In
deed, much of our finest scenery can
not be reached, even by such trails
If the United States government, in
cooperation with the states and local
communities, would build great, smooth
highways, making the wonders and
beauties of our great west easily ac
cessible to tourists, in a few years the
tide of travel would be turned west
ward. Not only would millions of dol
lars spent annually by Americans in
Europe be kept at home, but other
millions would be brought to our
shores by tourists from foreign lands.
But the natural attractions of our
country are not the only things which
are made inaccessible by the lack ot
good roads. Our places of historic
interest are mostly in the same cate
gory. Take, for instance, Monticello
home and tomb of the immortal Jef
ferson. Few Americans even know
where it Is, much less visit it. Mon
ticello is only three miles from the
city of Charlottesville, Va., which is
on two great trunk lines. Why, then,
is it so little known? Because three
miles of about as bad road as can be
imagined lie between It and the rail
way station. One cannot travel over
that narrow, steep, rough, muddy
country road without a feeling ol
shame. At present an effort is being
made by a small band of patriotic
men and women to build what is
known as the Jefferson Memorial road,
to make Monticello accessible to the
public, but only a beginning has been
made, and they are finding it up-hill
work to raise funds to complete the
But, after all, the encouragement ol
travel is not the most important rea
son for the building of good roads.
They are absolutely necessary for the
prosperity and happiness of the peo
ple. The era of railroad building on a
large scale is practically at an end.
In the course of commercial and in
dustrial development we have reached
a point where the great problem of
Improving the common roads must be
faced. We can no longer treat it as a
local question. We have tried that for
three-quarters of a century, and in
nearly every section of the country
the miserable results are apparent
The good roads problem will never be
solved locally. It is too vast It can
be solved only by the genius, the
wealth, the labor and the patriotism
of the whole people. A great national
movement is necessary. In coopera
tion of the nation, the states, the coun
ties and the local communities lies the
solution of the problem.

NEWSPAPERS IN THE SOUTH.
An Era of Consolidation Has Set la
Araonff Them Why There
Are So Few.
There are 2,250 daily newspapers in
the United States. They increase in
number slowly. Pennsylvania has the
largest, Wyoming has the smallest
number. New York has only eight
more newspapers than Illinois.
In the south, where daily newspa
pers are least numerous, an obstacle to
their increase in number, because it
hinders their more extensive circula
tion. Is the absence in use of small
coins. A five-cent piece is the smallest
coin in ordinary use and five-cent daily
papers in the south have not, general
ly, according to the northern stand
ard, been "worth the price."
Recently there has been a clearly
marked period of newspaper consoli
dation in the south. Richmond, one of
the oldest southern capitals, has con
solidated four dailies into two one
morning and one evening paper. At
lanta has only one morning paper, as
have Charleston and Columbia . in
South Carolina; Savanah, Macon and
Augusta in Georgia; Montgomery, Mo
bile and Birmingham in Alabama, and
Memphis and Nashville in Tennessee.
In Memphis there were two morning
papers. These were consolidated. Then
a new one was started. It was ab
sorbed and there is a sole successor of
three morning papers in that city.
Tennessee had, prior to this consoli
dation, fifteen dairy newspapers. Ken
tucky has 15, Mississippi 15 and Ala
bama 21. A state which has a dispro
portionately large number of daily
newspapers is Texas. It has 91. Cali
fornia has 112.
The increase in the population of
southern cities in the last ten years
has been favorable to southern dailies
published in them. In the ten years
preceding 1900 Louisville increased in
population 27 per cent., Memphis 58,

The I'nlversity of ihe Sonth Has

The direct and immediate advan
tages of careful lumbering when com
bined with the practice of forestry
have seldom been so forcibly shown
as in the case of the University of the
south at Sewanee, Tenn., vhose timber
lands have been managed since 190C
under the direction of the bureau of
Although $3,000 for all of its timber
was considered a fair offer by the uni
versity in 1S99, the bureau, by its plan
of management, has already secured a
net profit for the university of $3,200.
Four more years of lumbering remain
to te done, tnd for tl.iee years, at
least, there is an assured annual profit
of $1,500. In a word, timber formerly
valued at $3,000 will hae been made
to yield a profit of over $" .000.
Sewanee is on the top of a spur of
the Cumberland plateau, and is a not
ed summer resort. Every summer
when the university opons hundreds
of persons from all over 1he south take
cottages in the town to enjoy for the
season the fine climate and the beau
ties of the woodland scenery. The
work of the bureau of forestry is thus
brought to the attention of a large
number of people, many cf them own
ers of southern timber lands, who see
for themselves the ereat practical ad
Vantages of forestry and careful lum
bering and the surprisingly large profit!
and improved appearance of the forest.
A detailed account of how the results
in the Sewanee forest have been
achieved has just been published by
the bureau of forestry in bulletin 39,
entitled "Conservative Lumbering at
Sewanee," by John Foley. The bulle
tin does not furnish sucn specific in
structions for the m.'inagement of tim
ber lands like those at Sewanee that
can be applied to them without expert
assistance. It illustrates, however
what may be done with such timber
lands, anl especially does it emphasize
that lumbering and forestry may be
practiced in the south, i s elsewhere,
with profit. Boston Idea?
A Remarkable Texas Yearling;.
The Amarillo Star contains this re
"It is seldom that a newspaper can
furnish its readers with novel matter
gathered from natural history or a like
source. The Star begs leave to an
nounce that a yearling calf crawled un
der the large building of Mr. J. J. Holt
cn Polk street, near the Denver road.
Saturday night Messrs. Holt and Sin
gleton were in the office of the building
and heard a scrambling, thnrovln'
noise beneath. Upon investigation
they discovered 6. yearling calf under
the building near the front entrance.
From the position of the calf it seem:
to have crawled about 140 feet to have
reached the eastern end of the build
ing. No place between the ground and
building is more than twenty inches
high. The exit to Mr. Calf was some
what trying, owing to the small place
at which he tried to crawl out. It was
assisted by a rope in the hands of
Messrs. Holt and Singleton, whe
vouch for the truth of this story, and
in addition thera is calf hair the en
tire length of the building."
The gentlemen mentioned in the ar
ticle will be credited by the average
man in Amarillo. Because to doubt
what they say brings with the doubt
the duty crawling under the house to
look at the calf hair. Most men would
rather agree to the truth of the whole
story than make the exploration men
tioned. If there is a doubt, justice re

The Bible and the Empire State
A Bible student has recently been figur

people to make the journey from Dan to
Beersheba if they could have had the
benefit in the olden times of the Empire
State Express. He figured that the train
would have made this journey in less than
three hour, although from a reading of the
account in the Bible one would think it was a
long journey, and ifcwas for those days with
their limited means of transportation.
