Good Roads Campaign
Good roads in Missouri suffered a
distanct loss when Col. Frank Buf
fum was no longer at the head of
the Missouri State Highway Board
No one ever brought to this office
such aggressive interest and action
Col. Buffum not only knows the
construction of good roads: he em
inently realizes that they are the
greatest commercial asset a state or
community can have. So interest
ed was he in good highways in this
section of the State that at one
time he offered to give gravel free
to people of this community, they
to pay carriage, if it would be used
in the construction of good roads.
Some few availed themselves of the
opportunity of road repair. But the
highways out of Vaudalia are stiil
in an unreinforced condition, fine in
good weather, but practically im
passable at certain seasons and only
saved by the drag. The American
soldier with bis first hand know
ledge of good road3 as they contri
buted to the expeditious movement
of troops and supplies, will come
home with a new vision, that is go
ing to have a tremendous effect on
roadways all over the United States.
A young woman named Stella
Tolland, dressed in boys' clothes
was arrested in Kansas City the
other day at her own request. She
says she is hunting for her husband
whom she accuses of deserting her
and avers that when she meets him
she is going to kiss him, and then
"bust him in the nose."
One of the best things that could
possibly happen in Missouri would
be to vote $60,000,000 bond issue
for good roads. Every county in
the state would profit by that bond
issue. Illinois will spend a billion
dollars on her roads

Business Ater the War
Business after the "war will be
good if we are all on the job iu the
proper spirit, and The Saturday
Evening Post says:
A very able business man recent
ly gave his associates his opinion of
economic conditions after - the war.
He saw swollen prices, billoLS of in
flated currenency, heavy taxes, mil
lions of soldiers looking for jobs
when war's enormous demands for
g.cds bad ceased; strikes, turmoil,
idle munition plants. He believed
that looking back over war's vast
senseless destruction - men would
feel a profound disillusionment.
Times would be bad. :
Within a week,' as it happened,
another business man, as able and
of as great reputation as the first,
gave his views of after-war condi
tions. He saw a far more abundant
supply of money for industrial ex
pansion tban before, war financing
having disclosed unknown possibili
ties in that direction. ' He saw in
dustry, thanks to war, much better
organized than ever before; an
ample labor supply and a better
equipment tban ever " before . for
maintaining the stable relations be
tween capitol and labor. Taxes
would be high, but production
would be greater, giving a bigger
fund to pay taxes out. of. . Recon
struction and deferred improve
ments would create tremendous de
mands for materials and labor.
Manufacturers and merchants
would have a new idea of the world's
buyer. Plans that would have look
ed too big in 1914 would look small
after the war. Coming of peace
after this war nightmare would
stimulate men, and as they looked
on the tremendous things accomp
lished since 1914 they would look
to the future with higher hope and
greater confidence than ever before.
Times would be good.
Both of these men one an Eng
lishman, and the the other .an
American were equally right
II we look at it in the fit way
times will be bad. If we look at it
in the second way times will be
good What business conditions
an.- after the war will depnd first
of all upon the state of our minds.
If we keep our courage, our. punch,
our common sense, try hard to
harmonize our difference and pull
together, we shall have good times.

The Regular Army
One of the prohleias no, co ning
up beLre Cxur-:- i t:;e question
of rec.msiituiinj the K- jii'r Army.
The American people dislii: mili
tarism, bjt an nrmv somewhat
larger tnan its strength before the
war will be euer-.illy ilpsired. The
country will nevvr ('rift men to
serve in pe ice times. Ir is then a
question of makin4 service popular,
so there will be enough voluntary
Even for the relatively small
army as it existed before the war it
was hard to get tueu enough Ev
ery post office in the tountrv was
placarded with posters urging men
to enlist, and dwelling on tha com
forts and pleasures of army life.
The pay of $1500 a month tiven a
private at the beginning of his ser
vice was not attractive Of course
this pay was better tli jo it looked
A man was provided with about
everything he needed. The $15.00
was practically for spending money.
Now the lowest rate of pay is $3000
a month, with increases every three
or four years, and final retirement
in SO years with three quarters pay
and some allowances
A fellow who goes through the
30 years will be better off than
many others that have earned very
much more. But whether enough
men can see it is a question. The
pay will have to be made enough
to get the men. It is reported from
the cantonments that a good many'
drafted soldiers would be willing to
stay on as regulars. The life does
look attractive to men of a certain
type. Itehould be made as plea
sant as possible, with all the home
comforts that can be supplied.
Uncle Sara is going to want a
sizable army for the troublous and
uncertain days now ahead. A good
class of men is wanted, who will
bear themselves with dignity worthy
of their government, and keep up
American repute wherever they
are sent. .
