Local Men Interested in Roads
in Vicinity Big Pro
jects Later.
The National Hignway asswia
tion is agitating the question t
National Highways at present, uni
even though thev are particularly
sanguine in r gard to this form
road building mey ihernseives ad
tail that it is necessarily a slo
proposition. Local men interested
in good roads are of the same opin
ion, and a number of them who be
lieve that the National Highway
proposion is a good one are at pre
sent more interested in attending t
the roads in their own vicinity ami
letting the National H ghway pro
positions come afterwards.
There is no doubt that the Nat
ional Congress is takii y more inter
est Hi good roads than i: did several
years ago. Road bil.s were soon
turned down in Congress a few
seasons ago but nuw there are
nearly a hundred bills before Con
gress dealing with r ai building in
one form or another.
This idea of good roads has been
gathering force for years and the
people are divided into classes in
regard to it. Some road associa
tions want State Highways without
our National aid. Still others want
good roads paid for by the county
throuph which they pass, without
any aid. And yet others are adva.

but by the nation.
Newspaper Errors.
Newspaper readers are sometimes
astonished by mistakes on the part
of reporters. Consider, for lnstanoa,
the surprise of the readers of a cer
tain staid daily so tie years ago when
they learned that a public man had
the night before solemnly announces!
that "AH reforms In this country have
been brought about by Prussia." The
word the great man had really used
was "pressure." not "Prussia." 80, too,
considerable astonishment was caused
when "curaUa" Instead of "pew rates"
were reported to be "the greatest en
miss of the church."
One of His Stuck-Up City Ways.
"Since Joe Doe's got back here
again, after llvln' a year in Kansas
City, he's too blame' swell-headed for
any use!" hyperciitlcally remarked
Pip Maudlin of Skeedee. "Why, when
he's at work and the fire bell rings
he says he's too busy to go, and Just
lets 'er ring. Something mighty queer
about such actions; nobody Is ever
too busy to go to a fire!"
For a Rubbir Plant.
When the leaves turn yellow and
fall off the plant is dying. Feed it a
tablespoonful of olive oil every two
weeks. Also wash the plant once a
week with warm soapsuds, letting ths
warm suds moisten the earth thor

This same treatment should be used
on ferns.

Nloaraguan "Capote."
Instead of raincoats, the Nlcaraguan
wears a "capote." which is a piece of

While waiting for the arrival of
