a paid in capital stock of $00,000, with
$50,000 surplus. The new bank will

The new position to which Mr. Hoyt

business opportunities here. Mr. Hoyt
has been vice president of the Home

operated on the Morris plan, since its
organization and has been an import

cerning his resignation Mr. Hoyt said:
"I have tendered my resignation as

of which are in splendid condition.

New Worm in Lexington.
Lexington.-William F. Tayldr, a
farmer of the Priceville section of the
county, brought to Lexington speci
ments of corn, cotton and vetch which,
he said, had been attacked and almost
completely eaten up by a peculiar
worm which had appeared on his
place. Mr. Taylor stated that the
worms were first discovered in his
vetch, corn and cotton patches and
had attacked only a small area in each
fleld. Through one night the ivorms
had covered an area of about three
acres in each of the fields and na're
making rapid strides.
The worms resemble the common
caterpillar, being of the same color
and of about the same size. The
stalks of, corn, about two feet high,
cotton leaves wvere eaten completely
Iup, while the vetch was robbed of its
seed and leaves.
Cherokee Crops Improve..
Gaffnoy. -Reports from different
sections of Cherokee county are to the
effect that the crop prospects have
greatly improved within the last few
days. In many sections where the
cotton has been planted over a good

a good crop may be expected. Corn
is looking well, although the small
grain crop is not at all good.

Poor Economy to Replace Worn-Out
Floors With Wood, Says Minne
nesota Highway Commission. ,
It is poor economy to build bridges c
with wooden floors or to replace k]
worn-out floors with wood, the Mimnne- t
sota State Highway commission says
in a late bulletin issued to county
boards and district engineers.
"The department is frequently re
quested to inspect old bridges and de
termine whether it is feasible to re
place a wooden floor, because in a ma
jority of cases the old bridge is found
to be dangerous when carrying trac
tion engines," says the bulletin. "It

heavier steel, and ay further expense
is a clear waste of money."
BAD ROADS VERY EXPENSIVE
Estimated Cost of 23 Cents a Ton Per
Mile on Average Highway-13
Cents on Improved.
There is no need of discussing the
importance of good roads. They are
essential to comfortable travel, to tho
economic production and distribution
of farm products, to the development
especially of satisfactory rural schools,
and to the improvement of the social
life of the nation. Bad roads are
very expensive possessions. It is es
timated that it costs 23 cents under ex- .
isting conditions to haul a ton a mile
on the average oountry road and only
but this is not all the story. The di
rect cost is very great and the indi
rect costs are possibly greater. WVith
bad roads the farmer is compelled to C
haul when lhe should be engaged in
other activities, while with good roads ~
he can plan his operations without b
referenice to the weather. The states b
