The child city born and bred has fewer opportunities for acquiring a sound, practical knowledge of the es sentials of life than the child Ixirn in the country. The farmer's boy may not leave the polish of the city Ixn : lie may not 1* able to talk so undcrstandingly of the current events which take place in tow n: his hands may not lx? so soft and smooth, and he may not so often think of how his finger nails look, but of real, useful, practical knowledge he has ten times as much as the city boy. The farmer's l*oy knows the birds, the lieasts. tlie trees, the various plants: he can pretty accurately fore tell the weather, and if lie seesagood horse or cow lie knows it. He is a good judge of character, and later on in life he w ill not lx* readily taken in by sharpers and frauds. Say what you like about the “old hay seeds." they are not half so green as they look. The farmer's 1 >oy is courageous, for his daily life leads him into more or less danger, lie must climb the t rees fur the nuts and apples, and climbing gives him agility and self-confidence. He •breaks" the colt his father gave him.'and lie has a horse it is a pleas ure to ride after, lie raises his own liens and chickens, and when he eats the custard his mother makes for him there is no flavor of antiquity alxiut them. He breathes the purest air that lies out of doors. He feels the sunshine fresh from the eternal fount and not held in solution by clouds of smoke or gases from some poison distilling man ufactory. He is alive and thorough, lie has a jolly good .time in life, and bye and bye when he has made his millions in some stuflycountinghouse lie will look to his life on the farm with a regret that is akin to pain. lie will recall the rocky lulls where the maples yielded their hearts' blood in the glowing spring, and the sugar camp where the luscious sweetness bubbled in the great vats, and the girls from the neighboring farms came up in the moonlit nights to help at the “sugaring off.” The life of a farmer's boy may have restrictions: it may hold its full share of hard work: but work is a glorious tiling when the ability to perform it is given. Work, which so many worth less scions of effete aristocracy affect to lie horrified at. is (iod-ordained. It strengthens and develops a man men tally. morally and physically. The man who can work has a comfort in time of trouble, and a staff upon which to lean in adversity. I.et no living person decry the coun try. To live in a pure atmosphere, to see daily unfolding before the eye won derful problems of the seasons old, but ever new: to watch the sunrise and the sunset tinge the mountain tops with the light no artist's brush can ever imitate: to love the gentle animals and the singing birds which are ever around the child of the coun try why. it is but a step to the per fection which we hope may come to us when the glad new life opens up to us in the Mystical lfeyond. Farmer's Voice. Are You Engaged? Engaged people should remember, that, after marriage, many quarrels can be avoided, by keeping their di gestions in good condition with Elec tric Hitters. S. A. brown, of Ben nettsville. S. ('..says: “For years, my wife suffered intensely from dyspep sia, complicated with a torpid liver, until she lost her strength and vigor, and Uranic a mere wreck of her for mer self. Then she tried Electric Hitters, which helped her at once, and tinally made her entirely well. She I is now st rongand healthy.” All drug* - gists sell and guarantee them, at . one a buttie. Rivers and Harbors and Hood Roads. The advocates of tlie Brownlow Latimer Good Roads bills are not afraid of criticism. In fact, it is ex actly what they desire, as it will aid in getting the matter before the peo ple in discussion that will develop the strength of the question. One of tlie strongest arguments in favor of na tional aid to good roads is that based on the river and harbor appropriations. The only questions seriously discussed when a river and harbor bill comes up in Congress are the amount to lie voted and for what particular im provement the money is to lie. spent, tin general policy lieing already thor oughly established. Congress has in the past fifty years voted more than *tOO.(H\UkH) for this purpose, and now an annual appropriation of #2'»,000,000 is looked upon as quite conservative. The advocates of national aid to road improvement claim that much more ‘‘an Ih* said in favor of their proposi tion than in favor of river and harbor legislation, and much less against it. Both come under tlie general class of "internal improvements." The gen eral argument in favor of river and harlior improvements may tie summed UP as follows: (1) They promote the general welfare. (2) The improve ments entail an expense too heavy to tie borne by the people of the locali ties most directly interested, and Bence would never be made if tlie government refused to foot the bills. 1 lie same arguments apply w ith equal force to tlie improvement of the pub lic highways. Certainly no hind of Improvement would do more to pri» mote the prosperity and the moral and intellectual upbuilding of the masses, it is also equally certain that this great work of internal improve ments will remain undone, to a great extent, if the whole burden of ex pense is left to lie carried by the peo pleof rural neighborhoods. More than a hundred years of experience in most of the older States sufficiently demon strates this fact. In truth, no general progress is being made except in four or five wealthier States which adopted the State aid plan. The policy of voting Federal aid to road improvement has three great ad vantages over that of voting funds for river and harlior improvements, as follows: First - While the mone> voted for the latter purpose is collected from the whole people by taxation, it is necessarily expended in limited locali ties, the Inhabitants of which receive the greater part of the benefits. In fact, a great majority of the people of the i'nitedStates receive no direct and hut little indirect benefit from these improvements. < >n the other hand, a Federal appropriation for road improvement would be available in any section. Every State and county could share in the direct benefits, while large indirect benefits would come to the people of all cities and towns. Second the benefits flowing from an appropriation for rivers and har bors are strictly limited to the amount of money voted, as no help is required from the local communities. Hut the Hrownlow-Latimer plan merely con templates that the government shall help those people who are willing to help themselves. No community could have any part of the government aid until et had raised a share of the funds equal to its quota of the gov ernment fund. Thus a Federal ap propriation for this purpose would produce tx-netits far beyond the limits of the amount voted. Third Nat ional aid to road improve ment would lx; free from the "log rolling" features of river and harbor legislation which so often injuriously affects other important matters in Congress. This is true, because the fund would be equitably distributed according to a general plan, 'i’he gov ernment would simply make available a sum of money, an equitable share of which could be secured by any State or county complying with certain specified conditions. It is difficult to see how any member of Congress can logically vote for a river and harlxir bill and refuse to support an appro priation to aid in improving the high ways of the country.
