SHALL WE Kl'ILD THE BRIDGE? . --ir
The Tribune present.- on this pa !e;:.-r -rem Mr. Pressky Hop-
per in opposition to the bond Issue for the destruction of a bridge over
the drainage d.tehes. Some u the statements iniule by Mr. Hopper are no
doubt true, and we are glad to gi. e "vis vor.-icn of the project, even
though, it les not coincide with the- stand of The Tribune.
It has been more than half a century since the raiboad bonds were
voted, and since that time Cape Gir uWvn has grown from a coal oi!
lamp village into a city with electric :?? aid all modern d nvenlenc-e.-.
In those, days land .-old for ?5 an ace, and the hoed issue of 130,00
Til? farmer of today sills oee bu-'i-' of wheat for the price of a calf
hack in tho.-c days Conditio!! have cnangod materially since then. Cape
Girardeau is now the metropolis of S ihas.l Missouri and is bidding for
business from this entire section of! if Cap? Girardeau is pros
perous, propeity values in this city :u d the entire township will con
tinue to increase. Hut if the city i i-o.apo'.led to go bf-ck where it was
when the railroad bond was voted, pr.-r.nty would be without value.
If we do not. bridge the Hock Road Levee, Tape Girardeau will go
back; business in this city, no matte;- w':at it would be, would be ruined.
That is the condition now confrotuii.tr u IT the propo.-x-d bridge were
intended only for the benefit of the f .-.v. we v uu!d oppose it, but it will
save the town.
Cape Girardeau's future is bligh ! if it must divorce itself from the
natronnge of the people who live in the counties bHow us. We can see no
u-.iv to build this bridge except by th
11 o us together ana serve as a benell

I would not have wo:::an ttsttrji man's place in world a.Tnirs, but I

I would have them divide the rigid. Ami by tliviiitig ihe ri.Iit tl.ey would

It would efface from g;ovc nimetit many, if net all, cf ihe evils that pre

woman-made laws be, if she were allowed to build thctn alone.
Woman's entrance into public life is in -t .hj' etiur,able as it once

into business affairs, while I am sorry she must p out from her home,
conditions today decree she must, and there n mains not'timr for her io
do but to go ht.
But before sdie makes her move into public life I believe a woman
should have some sort of training to
bilities with which she intends to burden herself. There should be a
Echool for the studv of government, and io this institution I would not
only send woman but man as well. '

TRANSPORTATION OF FARM PRODUCTS "
MADE QUICKLY AND
MOTORTRUCK USED FOR CARRYING MILK.
Ih fruit and truck growing ami in dairying the motortruck lias peculiar
advantages. Perishable products .deteriorate rapidly with handling und'iime.
Kail shipments are subject to many and long delays, particularly now when
there is such freight congestion and when preference- is given by the curriers
to munitions and oilier ldgli-fiviqht-r.ite jdiipmcnt m, when priority of sh!--meiit
is being given to fuel, steel and army supplies, and embargoes on vari
ous kinds of freight are being ordered by the railroads. Motortrucks are
used in California, Michigan, Ohio, Ni vv Jersey and various other states to
haul fruit and garden truck lmg distances di:vetiy to market in the large
cities or to direct fhipping points, thereby saving several handling and much
delay. The fruit or produce arrives in market in a few hours Instead of a
few days, is fresher and in better condition and consequently commands
There are many places in the country within tifiy miles of great markets
where farm produce is allowed to rot on the ground or is fed to live stock,
because it does not pay the fanner to shin it, the Christian Herald states.
Yet consumers in the city have to pay high juices for the same kind of
produce. Numerous oflii;d investigations have shown ihat the consumer
pays anywhere from two to live thins as much for the vegetal les and fruit
lie oats as the prodm-or re t Ims for lium. Th difference goes to the rail-,
roads, commission i:erc!..:i.: and n il"rs.

LOCSE RIM CAUSES TROUBLE
Generally Makes It-. Presence Known
by Squeaking Scund When Oat
It is generally nndersiod nowadays
that wheels which are out of align
ment cause undue tire wear. Few
owners, however, realize that rims
which are loose or otherwise improp
erly mounted will have the same ef
fect of causing excessively rapid tread
wear. A loose rini generally makes its
presence known by a clinking or
squeaking sound. This is not always
so; for occasionally a small stone or
sonic sand may ?. t in between the
rim and felloe so as to prevent noise.
The rim appears to be tight, but in
. 1 nlrt nnr of aumnient
reality is runniifg out of alignment
and wearing out the tire.
