ls lessing strange. The thing io do
Is to show him it ls to his interest

Interest to build road?.
I remember once where a township
proposed to vote bonds for roads and
BO rue of the citizens opposed lt on tow
saltish ground that they did no; pro
pose to build good roads for the peo
ple ot soother township to drive over.

Any maa la Anderson County, for
instance, would be willing to pay four

?mount If tho hoads are ttsutd. Thea
why oppos? it. Prom a selfish stand

that your county may remain in the
