"I've just simply made my peace with God, and the balance or my days I just want to live a qulgt, simple, Chrlstllke life," said the former bandit yesterday In Lees Summit.

AUTOMOBILE TRAFFIC HARD ON ALL MACADAM ROADS Repairs, Needed Ones a Year, Are Dif ficult and Short Lived. I Highway engineers long ago dlscov- ; ered that the ordinary nuieadam road has no ehaiu-e under automobile traf- , tic. The b"st of them, well founded and crowned and surfaced, hardly last n season. "Spotty" rep.jlrs are dllli ctilt and short lived, :iud a highway nine-tenths of whose surface Is In good condition soon has to be entirely nuide over because Of the ruined olie-telllh. says the New York Lvenlng Post. The 1 various forms of surface bound macadams-tarred, oiled, etc.-have given heller service than the plain macad ams, but they. too. are comparatively short lived under heavy motor trallle and similarly defective In requiring complete renewal when but a small pari of the mad is worn out. ! The result of this new situation Is that the mie-ailam road, which fur nished a comp'iratlvely cheap and "sat isfactory highway for horse trallle. has become one of the most expensive forms of road surface.
