TJ. S. Collects Data Showing
Value Added to Land More
Than Pays Cost.
What the direct effect of changing
bad roads into good roads has upon
land value -and the general economic
welfare of a community is shown in
several concrete illustrations gathered
by the United States department of ag
riculture. The department has just
issued " a statement on the subject,
based upon a mass of . information
gathered by the office of public roads.
which is making a special study of
the economic effect of road improve
ment In the country. According to
data, gathered, where good roads re
place bad ones, the values of farm
lands bordering on the roads increase
to such an extent that the cost of road
improvement is equalized, if not ex
ceeded. The general land- values, as
well as farm "values, show marked ad
vances, following the improvement of
Among the illustrations cited by the
department are the following:
In Lee county, Virginia, a farmer
owned 100 acres between Ben. Hur and
Jonesville, which he offered to sell for
$1,800. In 1908 this road ws improv
ed, and, although the farmer fought
the Improvement, he has since refused
$3,000 for his farm. Along this same
road a tract of 188 acres was supposed
to have been sold for $G,000. The pur
chaser refused the contract, however,
and the owner threatened to sue him.
After the road improvement, and with
out any improvement upon the land
the same farm was sold to the orig
inal purchaser for $9,000.
In Jackson county, Alabama, the
people voted a bond issue of $250,000
for road improvement, and improved
24 per cent of the roads. The census
of 1900 gives the value of all farm
lands in Jackson county at $4. 90 . per
acre. The selling value at that time
was from $6 to $15 per acre. The cen
sub of 1910 places the value of all
farm lands in Jackson county at $9.79
per acre, and the. selling price is now
from $15 to $25 per acre. Actual fig
ures of increased value following road
improvement are shown. -
As the roads in no way affect soil
fertility or quality of the farm, ad
vahces are due essentially to the de
crease in the cost of hauling produce
to market or shipping point. Farms
are now regarded as plants for the bus
iness of farming, and any reduction In
th?ir profits through unnecessarily
heavy costs for hauling on bad roads
naturally reduces their capitalization
into values. Witji reduced costs for
hauling, profits are increased, with
the result that the farm plant shows
satisfactury earnings on a higher cap
The automobile also has begun to
be an important factor in -increasing
rural values where good roads are in
'Immigration is particularly marked
where road conditions are favorable
in fact, the figures of the department
seem to Indicate that good roads indl
rectlv increase the demand for rural
