ROAD REPAIRING.
Some Points on Putting a -Highway
In Good Condition.
Holes and ruts should never be filled
with stone, brick or coarse gravel, says
a writer in Good Roads Magazine. The
hard material will not wear uniformly
with the rest of the road, but will pro
duce bumps and ridges and usually re
sult in making two holes, each larger
than the original. Any saucerlike de
pressions or ruts should be filled.with
earth like that of the roadbed.
It is a bad practice to cut a gutter
from a hole to drain it to the side of
the road. Filling it is the proper course,
whether the hole Is dry or contains
mud. The holes most requiring atten
tion are found at the end of bridges
and along the sides of small wooden
box culverts.
The side ditches should be examined
in the fall to see that they are free
from dead weeds. and grass, and late
in the winter they should be examined
again to see that they are not clogged
with cornstalks, brush, etc., washed in
from the fields. The mouths of cul
verts should also be cleared of rub
bish and the outlet of tile drains
should be opened. Attention to side
ditches prevents overflow and washing
of the roadbed and will also prevent
formation of ponds at the roadside and
the consequent saturation of the road
bed.
Roads should have plenty of light
and air. Of course a shady road is very
nice on a hot day, but such a road can
not be kept in good condition, since
shade is nearly sure tc :-ause mud
holes. Therefore the road officials
should use all possible diplomacy to
have trees adjoining the road, particu
larly.those on the south side, trimmed
with reference to the needs of the
roads.
AMERICAN ROADS.
Uncle Sam's Canals and His Poor
Highways.
We are appropriating millions of
money for building canals and rail
roads, yet 95 per cent of all the mate
rial that passes over our canals and
railroads must in the first instance
pass over primary roads-namely, the
highways, says E. A. Bond, New York
state engineer. In connection with our
canals we are doing an immense work.
We are still appropriating money and
making them efficient. Our railroad
corporations are expending huge for
tunes in reducing grades and making
their roads straight and smooth.
Steamboat companies are expending
great sums in enlarging the capacity
of their ships and increasing their
speed.
What does all r +his avail if we who
are to be the wsst benefited do not
undertake some sensible system on a
business basis for building and main
taining in a wise manner the common
roads of the country?
When this has been done, and when
that good time comes (and it is as sure
to come as tomorrow's sun is to rise),
then will our boys be willing to stay on
the farm and our daughters be willing
to become farmers' wives. The isola
tion of farm life will then have passed
away and Instead of our boys and
girls leaving the farm to go Into the
crowded cities more will be willing to
go from cities to the farms. Then we
will have free mail delivery and the
telephone, and we will be the happy
and contented people that the Al
mighty intended we should be when he
gave us this rich and beautiful herit
age. ________
The Naming of Roads.
The naming of the roads, says the
Grand Rapids Herald, is something
that should have been attended to long
ago. Every main road and every cross
road in the county ought to have its
olicial title, just as do the streets and
avenues In the city. The roads are all
laid out on the map, but they are un
named, and to attempt to address a
farmer at his home residence except
perhaps in the most general way is im
possible, The board of supervisors
might well appoint a committee or com
mission to name the roads In the coun
ty, and in selecting names it would be
well to honor the sturdy pioneers who
settled In the neighborhood through
which the road passes. With the roads
named a farmer could be as easily ad
dressed by his- street and number as
can those who dwell in cities.
Good Roads In the Philippines.
If General Bell continues the good
work he has begun, the Filipinos will
soon have better roads than are usual
in this country. During the past year
under his direction fifty miles of mac
adamized road in one straight stretch
have been constructed, connecting OA
lanbas and Batangas, at a cost of
abot $2,250 per mile in our money.
The farms within a mile of this road
have doubled In value since Its con
struction.
Rural Delivery Notes
The free rural delivery system is un
der the charge of A. W. Machen. He Is
almost the father of the system. It was
born under the Clevelgad regime. Ten
thousand dollars was appropriated for
the initial experiment,
Since the date -of the permanent es.
tablishment of rural free delivery the
force of carriers has been increased un
til at present it constitutes an army of
about 12,000, who daily travel over
nearly 300,000 miles of highway for the
benefit of a population of about 7,000,
Governor Durbin of Indiana has
signed the bill recently passed compel
ling counties to keep in good repair the
roads on which rural mall routes have
been established. The bill provides that
5 per cent of the road fund shall be set
aside to keep these routes .th goQd cn

Mr. Joseph Pominville. of Stillwater,
Min., after having spent over $2,000
with the best doctors for stomach trouble
without relier, was advised by his drug
gist, Mr. Alex. Richard, to try a box of
Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tab
lets. He did so, and is a well man to
day. If troubled with indigestion, bad
taste in the mouth, lack of appetite or'
constipation, give these Tablets a trial,

GAVE UP DER POSITION.
Rather Than Make Up Booker T. Wash- a
Ington's Bed at an Indlanapois a
Hotel.
Lula Spence, the chambermaid
who refused to make up a room at
the English hotel in Indianapolis,
Ind., that had been occupied by
Booker T. Washington, and who
was discharged from the hotel, will
a
go to Houston, Texas, to accept a
position in a hotel, says the At
t
lanta Journal. She is still being
deluged with complimentary letters
from the South and offers of em
ployment. Some of the letters
have enclosed money, one a
check for $10. In an interview
with the Atlanta Journal cores
pondent she said: I Y
"I have about made up my mind
to go into the South and take the
position at Houston. I regret very b
much the notoriety that has come
out of my refusal to wait on a col
ored man. Great and small color.
ed men are all the same to me. My
people were slave owners in the
South, and my grandfather was
Joshua Morris, who was either a
state or a United States judge in
Alabama. I have no fault to find a
with Prof. Washington, and no
doubt he is doing a great deal of
good among his people, but I
could not bring myself to clean up e
his room."
"Well what do you think about C
President Roosevelt receiving a
WashinA ton at his table?"
"I would not have made up the
bed after Roosevelt if he had been
black. I think that was outrage- h
ons, and that as president, he should
have been impeached."
Have you any political views?" g
"Very strong views. I am out
and out Repablican in everything
from tariff to other questions in
government. Straugi as it may
seem, too, my father was a ution V
01
soldier, a member of the 18th Illi-.
nois, and I am proud of his part in
freeing the negroes. He was born
in the South, however, and so was
my mother and they both were
raised in the slave-owning class.
Later they moved to Ann, Ill., my ti
present home, and my father was a V
union volunteer from that place. c4
My mother was burn in Nashville, q
two squares east of the state house,
and was raised at Florence, Ala. d
My father was a native of Ken- W
tucky. There is nothing more to a
say about the incident. I simply ti
stood on principle. I am very P
thankful to the friends in the ei
South, and a few in the North, n
who have complimented me on my U
stand. I shall rest a week or ten P
days before I go to Houston to take h:

Railug Mules.
"Twenty reasons whly the farmer
bould raise mules," is the title of
folder published by the Baker's
ack Farm of Lawrence, Kan. It
3 worth reproducing in full, as fol
ows:
I. They can be raised cheaper
ban any other stock.
II. Will go into the market
ooner than horses.
III. They are marketable any
ime from weaning time (four
nonths old) until incapacitated by
ld age.
IV. Are less liable to contract
lisease than the hcrse.
V. Pasture a number of colts
brough the grazing season and
on will find plenty of blemishes
t feeding time. Mules prove the
ontrary and have few, if any,
lemislies, and their value is not
ecreased by blemishes, as a horse.
VI. They are easy to raise, easy
1 sell and hard to blemish.
VII. They instinctly avoid holes
nd dangerous places. A team of
unaway mules seem to run more
)r sport than frighr, and usually
:op before damage is done, while
horse never stops until he is com
letly freed.
VIII. The mule is more steady
hen at work than the horse, leis
ervous and is not so liable to be
>me exhausted, and often be
mes so well instructed and trusty
to need no driver or line!.
IX. Can Etand heat better

X. Can stand more abuse and
ardhip than a horse, but will re

XI. The profit in mule.raising

XIII. There is .always a steady
mnand for good mules. A -buyer
ill always handle them. If there
e plenty cf mules raised in a sec
on oif a country there will be
lenty of mule buyer's. Mule buy
s are not going where there are
>mules to buy. In time of war
Sany country mules are always'
icked up at a high price and very
ghly prized. Why? Because
iv must have them. They eu

XVI. Feed the same amount to

Thelfortune of an extremely rich
man is alway~ an interesting sub
ject of speculation, when if comes
to considering the fortune of the
richest man in the world, every
body is interested in it, probably
more in a spirit of curiosity than
anything else. It is usually the
case that when a fortune passed
$1,000,000 it is apt to be magnified
in the p.ublic mind. One million
dollars is a sum so enormous that
it is difficult for the average mind
to grasp its sigifificance, hence,
generally speaking, ten millions
expressed in figures are no more
impressive than one million. That
is why. so many nillioiiaire?, after
death, are fonnd to have left es
tates smaller than they were cred
ited with possessing during life.
It is probable that, in like man.
ner, the wealth of John D. Rocke
feller has been estimated at too
high a figure; still, the fact re
mains that by calculating from the
size of the dividends he receives
from the corporations in which he
is interested it is possible to arrive
at an approximately correct esti
mate of his fortune. A business
man closely associated with. Mr.
Rockefeller and said to be in a po
sition to know, is quoted in the
New York correspondence of the
Philadelphia Press as asserting that
Mr. Rockefeller is now by far the
richest man in the world, worth
more than twice as nrer -a.
other American citizen. His Stand
ard Oil stock, at the market rates,
is.worth $500A00,000, from which
alone for several years he has re
ceived dividends of $40,000,000 per
anium, or a little less than $1,000,
000 a week. Besides. this he aus
other sources of income that bring
him about $36,000,000 a year, so
that his total income from all
sources is not less than $75,000,000
a year, as it has been for several
years, and there is no suggestion
of a check to the enormous infbw.
That is to say, Mr. Rockefeller's
income~for a single year is more
than the enormous fortune left by
William H. Vanderbilt to his sons.
In ten years Mr. Rockefeller's
wealth will be nearly $1,000,000
from his annnal income alone. At
the moment, it is said, he can lay
his hand on more ready cash than
any ten men in New York, in
luding Russell Sage and the Van.

J AM feeling sick and sad. An
other friend has gone and lef
me. Jim Warren was my col
lege mater and I loved him foi
near sixty years. He was ouly
two months my junior and I some:
times wondered who would 1/e
called away first. What an awful
death was that: Crushed and
mangled ano. his poor old body
torn and dragged for a quar ter of a
mile and his dismembered limbs
strewing the track and his brains
larding the rails, Alas, how little
do we know about life or death!
Sometimes I watch the cattle going
to the slaughter pen and am thank
ful that Providence conceals from
them their impending fate, but we
do not know much more about our
own. How shall we die and when?
James Warren was one c.f my true
friends. I loved to love him and
it gave me comfort that he. loved
me and always called me Charley
as tenderly as brother. His body
was killed and that was all. His
pure soul went back immediately to
its Creator -and is now resting in
the bosom of God. That is my
faith and I hope it is the faith of
all those who loved him, for my
heart bleeds with them.
aiStr Yypoqraltars ar;d your
fires,
Strike for the green gra our
sires,
Strike until the last armed fue ex
pires."
I used to speak that speech, and
when I got to that part which said,
"They come-they come-the
Greek-the Greek!" I put on mar
ial agony ar.d elevated my voice
add shook the floor. I thought of
all this the other day when I read
about the strikers in Atlanta going
to Mr. Byrd's publishing house
and trying to seduce his non-union
printers to leave him. His part
ner, Tom Lyon, showed fight and
sed some css words and drove
them off, and they had him arrest
ed and the recorder fined him for
listurbing the public tranquility,
>ut if I had been the recorder I
iould have excused Tom.
This thing has come home to me
t last, for Mr. Byrd is printing a
ook for me and I cant get a -copy,
ond am fighting mad about it.
[he striking interlopers get all his
>rmter~s away, but two or three
ascals hung around the back door
nd all that Tonm could do was to
watch them and exclaim, "They
~ome-they come-the Greek-the
areek." But Tom is ga1m3 and
ays he will whin the fight and
ave some books for me by the last
f the week. The first edition has
til been. sold and the second is in
he press and has been delayed
mnd enfllated and barricaded and
aralyzed by these contemptible
trikers, and if there ever was a jus
ifable excuse for using cuss words
iman ought to be hired to stand
t the back door and cuss 'em by
he day as fast as they came. I've
2o patience with these strikers and:
oss with their leaders. One of
my boys has just est'ablished a
elephone plant in Houston, Tex.,
and had about forty girls employed
t good wages, when suddenly
some interlopers came and made
them all strike and he hired others
to take their places and the inter
lopers went round-to all his pat
ons and tried to get up a boycott,
but failed. The rich Mr. Hunt
ington is the chief owner and he
telegraphed my boy to whip that
fight regard less of expense and he
as whipped it. Last year at Day
on, Ohio, a big nlearted rich man
stablished a cash register plant
nd had two hundred girls employ
d and he care] for them just like
hey were his children and had
>ath rooms on every floor and hot
~nd cold water, and mirrors and
oap and towels, so that they could1
athe and clean up before they
went home and the girls were con
ented and happy, for all this was
o part of the contract, but some
nterlopers came along and ordered
a strike biecause some poor old
women who did not belong to the
uion had the job of washing the
owels that the girls used in their
ath rooms.
Well, now, that is one side of
he case, but it is said every case
as two sides. The war between
cpital and labor still goes on, but
labor has but little to complain of
in this blessed land. We see by
te papers that these union strik
er ini A tlanta have plenty of mon
ey in their treasury t ,
while they are idle nd sin f
them have gotten a :
club and are havinga gobA itime
generally. There is u6 uffeing
here like therp was in London se
enty-five years agb when Tom Hood
wrote the song of the shirt an<Lthe
lay of the'laborer. It would make
an angel weep to read that poor
woman's song;,
"For its work, work, work--my
labor never flags,
And wbat are -As wages-a d
of straw,
A crust of bread and rags, z
This shattered rcof, this iraked
floor, a table, a broken hat
And a wall so blank, my shadow I
thank
For sometimes falling there."
Her sad song aroused all London
but there was no strike. Our ownL 7z
George Peabody- was there in the
banking business and it aroused
him. Immediately be bought the
ground in the suburbs and spent
$2.000,000 iii building cottages for
the poor. Nice cottages,
bath rooms and hot and cold water
and flowers in the front yard and
vines over the door and paid th
taxes and charged only a little,
nominal sum for rent, just enough
to keep up the repairs, and in less
than a - year be had comfortable
homes for over 20,000 - people.
That's the kind of philahthrophy.
Our wisest statesmen ask for an
income tax as they have in Eng

great honor to a man to. give a
good part of his profits to charity.
It is a surprise and that is all.
