Little Rock, Dec. 19.—That the era of good road building ha.' dawned in Arkansas, is shown by the biennial report of W. B. Owen, State highway commissioner. It has followt 1 a c ... paign of education and agitation ex tending over a long period * ye. Following the creation oi a state de partment charged with the oversight and the propagation of improve! roads, there has been a wonderful im petus to the movement which was not possible formerly. Saluta'ry laws have also been a great aid, and im provements and extensions of the present statutory provisions are con templated in the session of the Gen eral Assembly to convene in Jan uary. During the two years now' closing, the department has made prelimin ary surveys, plans and estimates of cost tor 2,232.73 miles of improved road, of which 2,109.02 miles are sure of construction. It is estimated that the cost of these roads will be $8,651, 161.61. The total cost of this pre liminary work was $15,761.62, an average cost per mile of $7.50. Re ports received from sixteen other states show the average cost per mile for the same preliminary work is $41.75, ranging from $8 in Wisconsin to $123.78 in Maryland. There si now in the state highway commission fund, and payable Jan. 1, 1917, a total of $88,900.47. This, with the state’s share of $5 from each au tomobile license issued in the state, will according to the plans of the commissioner, make a nucleus of the annual appropriation to be made by the state to enable Arkansas to par ticipate in the federal good road fund. There is now under actual con struction a total of 429.14 miles in 25 counties, being built at an actual cost of $1,941,895.47. Of the total amount of improved road being built, the greater part of it, costing a total of $1,113,172.22, is being constructed under the Alexander Road Law, which was passed by the Legislature of 1915, and has since been sustained in various phases by the Supreme Court. It has proven one of the most progressive pieces of road legislation ever enacted in Arkansas, and when supplemented by additional law’s will make this one of the leading states of the Union in good roads.

I reached here very weak and exhausted and with scarcely enough strength to walk to the door. This trouble, from which 1 had suffered so long, had reduced me to almost a shadow, as 1 only weighed GO pounds. “My brother-in-law, Mr. Battle, said, ‘Well, oyu have tried everything with no relief, now I want you 11 lay aside your “drug shop" and take Tanlac.’ Of course I was willing to try it, for the medicine is the talk of the whole country. Well, he got it for me and I started on my first bottle that day. “When I had taken about half of the first bottle 1 began to feel strong er and encouraged. I continued to take it and it is nothing short of mar velous how 1 improved day by day T felt myself further and further from the grave. My appetite returned and my food seemed to nourish me and agree with me. My skin and eomplex ; • gon e! . i fng up and 1 improved in every way possible until I am now a wel' woman, and when I say well, I mean absolutely wjmt 1 ay. 1 want to tell the whole world that 1 than' : nd Tanlac. “I weigh 1)5 pounds now and feel a well as I ever felt in my life. I am going back to my husband and home on the 'ittle farm five miles fr mi Ae rth tomorrow, and won’t it be a joy ful meeting, returning to my husband and home absolutely well and happy— and won’t I tell everybody about what Tanlac has done for me?” “Yes, it’s just like she says,” chim ed in Mr. Battle about this time.
