Coneress. this winter will be flooded with itood roads bills, but It ha re mained for CoiiRTossman Stephens of California to prepare n measure of u comprehonsle character In which is involved the Idea of a (treat military highway: the Rood ronds Idea; a plan of Riling military training to the men emploed: and tho purpose of helping to provide against unemployment. Mr. Stephens will present at tho out set of tho session a bill carrying n authorization of 1100,000.000 to defruy the cost of constructing a great, im proved national highway, practically en circling tho United States. It would be over 10,000 miles In length and would, aaMr. Stephens describes It. start from Los Angeles, rurt acrosa the. southern part of the country through Arizona. New Mexico, Texas and the Gulf State to tho Atlantic coast; thence north, skirting the Atlantic to Port land, Maine; west through New York, Ponpsylvanla and olher States to Chi cago; thenco to St. Paul and Seattle and down along the Pacific coast.

Improve, construct, and maintain it. Tho work will be conducted under army engineers. Just as tnai ai ine Panama canal has been done. Put the men employed on the highway are to be citizens of the United States who are mentally and pnysicauy quaunen. for military duty and not oniy are tney to bo paid fair wages for their work, but they are to receive dally two hours of military drill under army officers. Mr. Stephens estimates that 100,000 men can be employed In the work of Im provement and construction, covering a period of some years. Moreover, a large force will be required later on for maintenance. Plan For Defense. Back of the plan is tho purpose to alve the utmost mobility to tho military forces of this country and to make it practicable to defend the nation from attempted Invasion. "It would bo a. great military high way encircling the United States," I said Mr. Stephens. "Proper defense of the country will not be possible until ome such plan has been worked out. It would be Impossible to throw troops and supplies to distant points within anr reasonable time under the present system. Tho railroads havo not the facilities. It Is absolutely necessary to construct a road of this kind If the military forces of tho country re to be given their needed mobility. Such a road would bo usable for nutomoblles, trucks, heavy wagons, artlllerv and the like. . Would Employ 100,000. "Primarily, as I say. It would be a military highway, hut In addition to this It would provide employment for a large number of men of military age who would be reaulrcd to take military training for two hours each dav. At least lOO.OOf) could be so employed. In hard times, a larger number of men could bo given work at good wages. It has beoiv proposed at times to have thn armv build roads. This is out of tho question. "But roads can be built by tho plan I propose and the defenses of tho coun try at tho samo time can 1o much strengthened. Under such a system, tha coast derenses would becomo something more than a string uf disconnected forts. Tho physical betterment to the men who did the work would also bo valuable and would mean the making of better citizens and better heads of fam ilies. I believe the States would gladly co-opernie wiin mo gcnorai Government In providing the route, 4vhlcli would l.o made up In large part of existing roads. Improved bv the Federal Government to meet the requirements." Dr. Pratt Addresses -Common Counsel Club Development In Foreign wns line subject of an no- "Itecent Commerce' dress by Dr. K. B.

Arrears Payments of $50,000 Madi In Belief, November 30 Was Last Day. Approximately JM.000 was added to the revenues of the District yesterday by the collection of real estate tax bills which have been In arrears since May. Notices recently sent out by the as sessor stating thnt the property of thoso In arrears would bo listed In the delinquent tax book were taken to mean, it Is believed, until January, and will not be printed before February 1. Tho tax salo Is held in March. Yesterdav's collections, It was stated, wero the largest of any one day since May. Thn amount of unpaid personal taxes, according to Collector Ben I.. Prince, is smaller than at any similar period in several years. AS WE GROW OLDER; our minds are quite as active, as in former years but our strength does not respond when we need it most; perhaps the kidneys are weak, the liver torpid, rheumatic pains or stiffened joints beset us.'and we cannot easily throw oU'the colds that winter brings. What we need is the rich cod liver oil in Scott's Emulsion to renew the blood . that November 30 andcirrystrength to every organ oljhe would bo the last dav on which the ac- K4t, iMtj(trU'r.r!njrwttiatnr. counts could bo paid.
