THOSE GOOD ROADS.
There is one sure way to have good
roads in this section of the country.
That is to build them.
You can't mako them by adopting
long-winded resolutions, as some
overconfident friends com to think.
Talk is a good thing in its place,
and it sometimes leads to resultR, but,
talk alono never did accomplish any
thing of prime importanco.
It is a lamentablo fact that we are
badly in need of good roads, and it is
likewise a laientable fact that most
people are content to do the taldkin
and lot the other follows do the worl,
and foot the bills.
But that is a poor way to accom
-l . ,t anthing.
If tho country roads are poor the
farmer and his wife and his (auiglitil
atid his son and his hired imtin co<i(
to town simply wheni they ari, c01m
They often miss a good market foi
their pr'oduts because the road1s airt
too poor to get to towvn. This is a
lo~s to the farmor and likewise a lose
to the merchiant. It ;s lsoi to a cer'
tain extent a loss to every bjusines:
and professional mnan in towni.
You ask why?
Thle reason is very3 simlel.
What will prevecnt one farme1i
from marketing his~ produce will like
wise prevent hiund~reds of others, an
the money they are thus deprived ol
is kept from circulation in our midst
Then again, if tihe roads are b'at
and the farmer does not feel lik
wading through the mud to gut, ti
town, he often uses theo111 mai to som
to the city mail order house f .r whai
lhe wvants, while if' the roads wer
go'>d ho would take a few hIour 18
and ride intuo town for them. Is thi

Here it is.
Let coer,' aba-bod(1ied man in th
county take a day off each month am~
spend it onl the roads, unde(lr comjpe
tent instructors. If necessary, Ie
every man close uip his buisiniess foi
that day. Take your hoe or' youri ax
or your spade or any road implemnii
y ou may have, and use it that day luo
the p~ublic good-and your own gooc
-and1 soe what t he result will be.
This may scmi to you1 like a go'o
(1eal of "talk," but we are willing t
back up this "talk" bay be ig the fir's
