It is the misfortune of QttOwni that it is neither country nor

THE ROMANCE OF ROADS.
WHEN an economic argument collides with a sentiment, the
former gets the worst of it. Canada proved this when it
rejected reciprocity in a flag-waving campaign. But when
sentiment and economics unite the one gives the other edge. '11ns
is ahown in the good roads movement, now thome of a national con
graaa at Richmond.
It has not altogether availed to cite such cases as that in Meek
looburg County, North Carolina, whore land sold for $8 an aero before
rood roads were bnilt and sells for $50 now; or that farm in Hall
County, Georgia which sold for $1,800 before a macadam road was
jWt through, and for $4,500 afterward. In a general way people knew
;heae thinga, but their effectual devotion to road betterment was not
iroused until the romance of the old trails was realized, until the
rivalry of States and sections was awakened, and until the plensure
Mtctting automobile widened the horizons of communities.
The good roads movement declares itself in such projects as the
nonunion ting of the Wilderness and Cumberland roads, the making
over of the Santa Fo trail into a noble thoroughfare with every miss
ng link restored, the marking of the Oregon trail, tho restoration of
;h Royal Road joining the old missiona of California, the proposed
Lincoln highway from Washington to Richmond or Gettysburg, the

the construction by the farmers in a single day of a practicable dirt
rend across Iowa. The movement has the solid merit of a budget
ahow and the interest of a street fair.

DANGER IN THE WOODS.
ONfc of the fictions of the time is that all men shot in the wood
were "miataken" for deer. Moat of them were, no doubt.
But how comes it that farmers so frequently fire at balloons f
Do they "mistake them for clouds and seek to precipitate a shower F
How comes it that so many hunters run away after winging a sports
man? Did that New Jersey sheriff who reported that everywhere in
the woods drunken hunters took aim at him wear horns?
An imp of deetructivenesg tenants the human frame, and its
boat ia not always proof against the temptations of a living target and
a fair one. It leads boys to throw pebbles at passing trains, and men
to join in pursuit of a fugitive figure, and men and boys in the woods
to take aim at moving objects regardless, and rustics to pot-shot aero
plane, and captains of racing river steamboats to pepper each other
When a man carries a walking stick he decapitates weeds and raps
tree trunks and smashes wayside bottles. When the police were or
dered during the ashcan war to leave their belts at home it was
shrewdly calculated that if their clubs wore in their hands ute would
be found for them.
IT is the cheerful service of District-Attorney Whitman to how
1 that the law has teeth against Black Hand malefactor, bank
looters and men who sell impure food or forestall the market. A
good work well done.

No. 23. The "Slaverg Shadow" Appear:

Thus wrote Thomas Jefferson, owner of a horde of slavaa

of alavory. So did thousands of men whose fortunes depended upon slave
(This article may be skipped by those who care only for the telling of
a dramatic story. For It deals with "conditions" rather than with eidtlng
"happenings." But the "conditions" were an all-Important feature In our
Slavery was one of the oldest Institutions In the world. It dated back
to early Bible days. For many centuries the buying and selling of human
beings was deemed as Justifiable aa the trade In cattle. Mule by little the
various cations found slavery unprofitable, and It had practically died out
In Europe by the time It started In America,
The first Western Hemisphere settlements were In Central nnd South Amer
ica, where the climate was often too hot to allow white men to do much outdoor
work. So the Spaniards forced the Indians Into slavery. In l.vu a Portuguese
hip (the Portuguese were the first race to hunt negroes In the African Jungles
for slave use) brought a cargo of negro elavwe to Santo Domingo.
These negroee had been raptured In their native forest like so many wild
animals. They brought good prices In Santo Domingo, for It was found they
could toll all day In the broiling sun nnd could live In
wamps where the etrungeit Kpanlarda
hove died. And aa tlie population Increased
ind for slaves bocame greater nnd greater.
rhen North America was settled, slavery
spread over nlmoat the whole continent. KVr nearly S00 years the liuytng or
stealing of slaves In Africa end the sulllna of them In America was n lesal and
recognised Industry. Kven wlcn the law at Inet forb.ide sucn importations the
trade went on by stealth. It Is told lhat when a Government vesrel once chased
slave ship the negroes were slinekled and thrown ovrloord In order to des
troy all evidence against the smugglers.
Hut though the Importing of slaves was largely chocked, the buying and sell
ing of them In America went on as before. Nearly every colony-nnd later
nearly every State from Maine to Georgia contained negro slaves. The Con
stitution of the Itnlted States sanctioned the custom. In the North It gradually
became more profitable to employ white labor than ro keep negro slaves, who
could not always stand the bitter winters Hut In the South, on the big planta
tions, slavery was still considered a necessity.
As the North had no further need for slaves the "Abolitionists" (a party that
demanded the ebollshln of alave-y) grew yearly stronger there. An "under
ground route" was established whereby negroes could he smuggled North to
freedom. William I-toyd Oarrlson and otlier statesmen lent all f-.clr energies
and genius to the liberating of the slaves. This Infuriated UM South. In Georgia
s reward of IS.fJOO was offered for Garrison's death. Kven In the North there
were so many and so rabid pro-slavery men that Uarrlson was once dragged
through the streets y a mob with a rope about his neck. A Western clergyman
who edited an Abolition paper was killed. On the other hand, mobs In Boston
and Syracuse forcibly rescued negroes from capture by their masters.
Between North and South the lines dally grew more tense. There had always
been rivalry between the two se-tlons. even before the elsvery question arose.
(So strong was this feeling during the Revolution that Washington's utmost
efforts were needed to hold It la check). Now, with the admission of each new
State to the Vnlnn the quarrel waed hotter. Pro-slavery and antl -slavery
factions clamored for control In every border State.
When Missouri applied for admission to the Union a climax came. After
hot srgument Henry Clay temporarily averted more serious trouble by formulat
ing what was known as the "Missouri Compromise." By the terms of This com
promise Missouri was to be .admitted as a slave
piArmAnwvirjvvw state; but slavery wss henceforth prohibited In any

Compromise." $ tine. South of Missouri the Sutos oould legs Use
,'""'''s- slavery or not, aa they might choose.
I The Missouri Compromise was weak and Indecisive, like most compromises
It did not at sll settle the slavery question; but merely postponed for a while
the Inevitable Day of Reckoning. Thanks to Clay's brilliant move, the struggle
to wrench the Union asunder was delayed. But far-seeing men knew the con
flict must some time come. Meanwhile the III feeling between North and South
grew yearly more Intense.
An event was at hand that was momentarily to weld the warring- factions
Into a solid front against a foreign foe. For the United States found Itself with
another war on Ita hands.
"Did they eat their oatmeal?" asked
Mrs. Jarr, noting In the dining room
tho uni'icared-iiwuy breakfast dishes.
"I couldn't get 'em to touch It; they
made ne cut the cake for them."
"Did Willie eat his soup last night,
then?" a-tked Mrs. Jarr.
"He won't never eat no soup when
you are out," declared Gertrude, "and
little Emma WOUIsD have the cat on
the table and feed 1t cream In eplte of
everything 1 could do. That's what
broke the dishes."
"Hut they were .good otherwise?"
asked Mrs. Jarr.
"Welti yes," confessed Gertrude.
"Only when my gentleman friend, the
fireman, called, Willie took his cap and
ran down through the hall and out into
the street hollering 'Fire" and Mr.
Hluvlnaky, who was passing, t a big
