SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6,
Fine Court House
vs. Good Roads
"It's better to drivo over good roads
to n court houao that coat $25,000 than
over muddy roaus to n couri nouso
that cost $300,000," is an expression
used by Governor Haskell In nn ad
dress to the township meeting at
Oklahoma City tho other day. Thoro
is not n material improvement that
Btands more urgently needful to tho
southwest than tho improvement of
tho public highways, Tho time is
past for academic discussion. Tho
general government has spent vast
sums of money all over tho south and
west for tho purpose of building
"snmplo roads", and not ono of
them has been built amiss; not ono
of them but has radiating from it n
road-building influence that extends
many miles. In all tho southwestern
states thcro is n sentiment highly in
favor of placing convict labor on tho
public highways instead of sending

There is another thing which
tno south has to learn, if ono may
judge from tho indications. There
is no sort of a road under heaven
that will not require the constant
watchfulness and care of n competent
road-maker to maintain it. Thcro
has been all sort of spasmodic road
building dono"nll over tho south and
west, but nno timo has there been
nny sort of organized effort to keep
every bit of work done in constant
repair. Tho idea that a road can bo
built which will stand for somo timo
unattended seems to bo prevalent,
hut thoro is no such road and thcro
never will be. All over Europe
whero good roads aro so common as to
attract tho marked attention of tho
visitor, there (aro keepers on every
section of them whoso duty is to
watch fortho slightest sign of do
teroiration, and to got to work
immediately to stop tho damage.
Here we build a road and uso and
nbuso it until it becomes impassible,
then many commence over and rebuild
it, or else put in a piece of patch
work hero and there that will hold
together in n Bort of way till tho
wholo road is impassible alike. Af
ter that it is rebuilt, while wo won
der why we cannot have such "roads
as they have in Europe ' '
Our wholo difllculty lies in the fact
that wo have not appreciated the im
portance and tho value of good high
ways. When wo get right in tho
matter of a true appreciation of goo
roads, wo will mighty soon work out
the "way to get them." When wo
come to understand that fine court
houses aro of very little importance
to tho people at largo then wo will

Comment and Suggestive Thought.
In Joel (2:28, 20) there Is a
prophecy quoted ln tho Acts (2:17-18,)
that "your daughters shall prophesy,
and your young men shall seo visions,
and your old men shall dream
clrenms." Visions and dreams bring
before us tho Ideals and possibilities
which wo can press forward to mako
ronl nnd true. Tho wholo church

How Solomon Reasoned Out His Do
ds'.on. Vs. G-8. Solomon, beforo de
ciding whnt to choose, carefully con
Rldorcd his circumstances and needs,
thus showing that well-balanced mind
on which It was posslblo to bestow tho
gift of wisdom.
First Consideration. Tho momory
of whnt Cod had dono for his father
was a motive for walking ln tho same
ways, receiving tho samo favor, nnd
carrying out to porfect fulfillment
whnt his father had begun.
Second Consideration. Ills work
was Inld upon him by Cod. Solomon
hnd not sought tho placo as did Absa
lom and Adonljah.
V. 7. "Thou hast made thy serv
ant king." Tho fact that Cod has
put a mnn ln any position of trust or
duty creates an obligation to fulfill
tho trust and perform tho duty.
Third Consideration. His youth
and Inoxporlenco. "And I am but a little
child." Ho was young and Inexpe
rienced compared with his fathor,
who camo to tho throno after a youth
of activity, and ten or twolvo years
of special training, and seven moro ns
king over a small kingdom. "I know
not how to go out or cotno In." This
expression Is provorblal for tho actlvo
conduct of nffalrs. Seo Num. 27:17;
Dout. 28:6; 1 Sam. 18:13. This was
n strong reason for asking of Cod
tho things ho decided to ask.
Fourth Consideration. Tho great
ness of tho work to bo dono. V. 8.
"Thy servant Is In tho midst of thy
people" That Is, Is sot over them as
a king. They woro a turbulent peo
ple, often going astray, often contend
ing with each othor, with strong wills
and nn impulslvo temporamont. Prob
ahl thcro was a strong party opposed
to him, and brothers of full ngo rondy
to lend It. "Which thou hast chosen."
It was not only a great nation, but tho
nation chosen to represent Ood be
foro tho world and carry out his king
dom nnd teach tho world his truths.
All this was a fnr greater responsibil
ity than tho ruling of an ordinary king
dom. "A great people, Unit cannot bo
numbered." This was a common nnd
natural expression for a largo num
ber. Seo Cen. 13:10. From tho num
ber of men given In 2 Sam. 24:9 and
1 Chron. 21:5, C, It is lnforrcd that tho
population was about 6,000,000. It
would havo boen very difficult ln thoso
days to got tho oxact number of tno
Solomon Choosos Wisdom. V. 9.
"Olvo therefore." In vlow of nil tho
nbovo considerations, and becauso God
had tho gifts In vast nbundanco, and
ho nlono was tho source nnd fountnln
theroof. "An understanding heart."
Wisdom for tho administration of his
duties, wise principles, and wisdom in
tho application of them to tho nation.
V. 10. "And tho speech nloaofd tho
Lord." Why 7 (1) It was right,
noble, unselfish, llko God hlmsolf. (2)
It rendered It posslblo for God to glvo
him largo measures of tho best things
In all tho universe. (3) It furnished
an opportunity to glvo many othor
things. Cod loves to give. Ho gives
us all wo can beneficially receive.
Tho moro ho can glvo us, tho better
ho Is pleased.
V. 11. "Because thou hnst ... not
asked for thysolf." Tho Bolflsh man
ennnot recolvo tho gifts God gave to
Solomon, nnd he ought not to re
ceive what ho selfishly asks for him
Bolf. Selfishness Is of hell, not of
heaven, and bears tho blossoms and
fruits of the placo to which It bo
longs. Koto that tho religious, unselfish life
Is tho essential condition on which
tho best earthly gifts can safely bo
bestowed. Tho spiritual city of God
must come beforo It Is possible or
uiifo to have the outward glories and
riches and pleasures which aro tho
fruit of tho perfect spiritual llfo.
Just as fast and as far as society be
comes Christianized throughout, so far
will It bo able to work out tho most
helpful things which the laws of na
ture and tho will of man can produce.
Tho world has been deprived of tho
best worldly conditions posslblo, be
causo It was not safo to ontrust all
thoso forces and powors to solfish men,
and to a community where Ignorance
nnd vice nro unrestrained.
But Just as far as any nation bo
comes Christianized aro all theso
things added unto thorn.
Ho Gained tho Blessing Ho Asked
For. Ho became very wlso in
many directions, his organizations,
commerco, fortifications, temple, pal
aces, waterworks, literature, his wld
