A progressive farmer will expend
money on building good fences, tile bis
land, erect wind mills, barns, sheds,
covers for his machinery, plant trees,
and do many things to make bis farm

monoy spent Is an expense that yields

of hard roads begun without the strong

A bard beaded German farmer at
Sheboygan, In a very graphic and com-
preherjblve way, told of the value ot
good roads as it appeared to him.
He said: "My farm is ten miles
from market, If It was only five
miles from market It would bo worth
$15 an acre more. I cannot mov my
farm In, but if we can build a good
road to my farm I can come in the ten
miles with my produce easier than I
could come ia five miles with bad
roads. Therefore to build a good road
moves my farm in half way to town.'
ltie writer caa traveled in many
states and foreign countries and stud
ied the road problem. In every local
ity where good road have-been built
the people are enthusiastic; they say
they do net see bow they ever could
bave gotten along so many years with
out them, for they have better schools,
more social advantages, that the peo
ple live better, dies better, and the
people in town are strongly attracted to
rural life; that where there waa an op
portunity to sell a farm once with the
bad roads, there were several opportu
nltles with the good ones.
If aay state or community will take
up th building of good road upon thf
right basis, and spread th payment
over a eerlts of year, they will find
it Is the best Investment tbey could
possibly mske. More than one hall

tion to form toed Judgment, will ay
that first class roads will psy for them
selves every five years, or In other
words, that their us la worti 20 per
cent, of the cost each year.
One sometimes hears a farmer, who
Is opposed to the building of hard
roads, say that he can raise no more
grain or gt a larger return from the
farm by reason of having good roads.
Such a one will attemot to sustain bis
position by stating only part of the
whole proposition. Of course it Is true
'hat the road ha no Influence upon
the productivity of the farm along which
t passes, but it does not follow that
the net results are the same, whether
the roads are good or bad.
Only a few days agj the writer was
il'wn In the corn belt of Illinois and
sw four hores hauling a load of cora
Into town. It was all the horses could
to to handle the load, although the
country was comparatively level. Th
tnud la the road wad nearly a foot
deep. No lair minded man will say
that, a crop can be marketed tinder
such conditions as cheaply as when tht
roads are good, and a single team caa
handle the same at twice the speed.
The value cf th farm does not de
pend alone upon what the soli will pro
duce, but upon its accessahlllty to
market, th environment and wbethel
the farm la In every way desirable a
a place to live. We spend money foi
pleasure and for comfort, and it It
right that we should do so. Probably
as a rul too little 1 spent foi
this. Whenever good roads have bees
built, in any community, there hai
been a sharp advance la the price ol

county In northern Indiana, when
about tea years ago a system of 2f
miles of hard roads were bulit, cover
insr, the main highways of the town
ship. About JS5.009 were spent upoc
the improvements, the payment spread
over ten years. Within a year aftei
the roads were built the farmers wer
asking and getting 115 to $25 an acr
more for their farms than they could
have gotten before the roads wer j
built In some cases the advance wa
even more. The Increase in taxation
was hardly felt
One fJ th prominent residents of
the township. In commenting upon the
Improvement said that the building of
the roads exerted a powerful Influence
upon the lives of the people of the
township everybody began to slick
up. a new picket feuce replaced the old
tumble down board fence, the bouse
wa painted, walks laid out, and au air
of thrift was apparent everywhere.
Also following the good roads, a town
ship high school was built and ar
rangements made to carry the children
to and from school. This was a great
relief to the isolation the young
people were placed under before Ice
roads were built. The new school be
came tbe social center and they found
in that township that the building of a
systeat of roads wa the best Invest
ment they bad ever made, and under
no circumstance could they be in
duced to go back to the old way. It
Is the same story everywhere; ta every
locality ahere any community ever be
gan to build good highway, aad had
the experience cf building, using and
Paying fur them, the community was
not only satisfied but kept oa build
ing more and more roads.,
Ia the last analysis It will be found
that the building cf highways adds to
the value of the farm strved by them
several timet the cost and this . In
crease In farm values is only one of
-he many advantages that grow out of
splendid highways.
Good roads will effect economies la
many ways; they will make life more
enjoyable; they mean better schools,
more social life and more profit, they
mean progress and clviilxatlun.

Hoehea'a imprisonment Is a fair
sample of tbe result of dependence
upon men rather than God. Trust In
Egypt was Israel's snare from the
first. Tbe prophet compared It to
trusting In a shadow or making a staff
out of a bruised reed. "The bankrupt
who asks a bankrupt to set him up In
