COLUMBIA'S GOOD ROADS ,
MAKE HIM LEAVE HOME
Some families moe to Columbia to
avail themselves of the excellent
schools, and others for business rea
sons; but Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Maxwell
moed to Columbia because of the
good roads here.
.Mr. 'Maxwell, who lived eight miles
south of Payette in Howard County,
had been a good roads man for years
His struggles for good roads, his vic
issitudes and disappointments, his
partial success in bringing a good
roads bond issue to a vote, and his
final failure by a tote of 3 to 1 show
that the good roads movement has its
heroes as well as other moements.
"Ignorance is the hardest thing
known to go against," Mr. Maxwell
said in explanation of his defeat. "The
farmers in the white-oak region in the
northeast corner of the county anu
those over against the Missouri Ricr
in the hilly region could not be made

nor snsnaeted the farmers in the
central strip of the county of trying
to put some trick over them."
To disabuse them of these fears, Mr.
Maxwell and other good roads men ar
ranged to hae thiee men apponueu
from each township who should hate
th riht tn sav where to spend the
money due their respective townships
according to their assessed aiuaxion.
For years Mr. (Maxwell, with the
help of two or three other enthusiasts,
had talked good roads in and out of
season, making it a ipoint to reach ev
ery voter with a man-to-man talk. Fi
nally, sufficient names on the petition
had been obtained, all the dodges of

nml nil lecal retirements had been
complied with. The court tried at the
last moment to put the oona issue on
the tickets of the regular elestion in
Rpntpmiwr. but the Kood roads men
were advised by the State Highway
Commission that thecounty court was
simply attempting to place the bond
issue on the regular election ticKet in
company with unpopular measures. A
separate election was demanded. So
it was decided to hold the bond elec
tion in August of last year.

of Journalism, among other speakers,

for good roads.
Success was at hand at last, it seem-

ed the benefits of good roads, had rea
soned with hard-headed opponents,
had given his time and had built a
hardsurface road along his faim as
an example to others. His heait was
set on carrying the bond issue. But
he had traveled to the end of his
patience. He swore to himself that

found anywhere, except on tailor
mades, and no matter what the fash
ion papers say the dress that is more
seen in every possible combinations of
color and material is the chemise with
slightly accentuated hips.
The material most in vogue for
garden pai tie's ard the river is fine
handkei chief linen in flower tints. The
latest share is a soft canary or tea
rose yellow. A rose dress niade of
this material is decorated round the
oval neck and short kimona sleeves
with curled petals of the self linen
outlined in palest rose color floss. At
the side where the broad folded gir
dle fastens is a large crushed full
blown rose made of the same petals
with twisted ribbon stems and leaves.
This little fiock was much admired
at the last of the queen's garden parties.
And the last cry is the suede or
glace leather jumper. These have not
appeared in shops yet but one or two
modish dressmakers brought them
over from Paris last week and they
were snapped up by a few women.
Oddly enough they don't cost anything
like as much as you would think they
do judging by the price of gloves and
shoes. They come at about the same
figure as silk jumpers. They are made
just like the silk ones with kimona
sleeves and V necks and are of palest
tinted soft leather. There are small
close fitting hats of the same leather
to go with them and the ho't brim
as well as the neck opening and
sleeve and lower edge of the jumper
are finished with blanket stitch of
