The good roads meetings, dinners
and celebrations which are being held
in every section of the country al
most daily, while they seem all-important
pod almost exclusive in each
place upon which they have a direct
bearing, are only part or a great or
ganization which has grown wonder
fully within a little over a year.
The major organization, which has
been iu existence only about twelve
months, was formed primarily for the
mirnose of trying to bring together
the more or less disconnected efforts
jeing made all over the United States,
and was known as the American Asso-
ciat on for Highway Improvement.
Originally it was not intended to try
to do more than this or to attempt to
become a big organization witlirin it
self, but so many big men have taken
interest in the movement and express
ed a desire to become identified with
.t that the plans of the organizers
Mai from all departments of life
are listed as active and enthusiastic
members. President Tal't is a mem
ber, and one who takes more interest
than would be expected or a man bur
dened with so many cares. Andrew
Carnegie is another member, as ar

known to g;ow unexpectedly rich
from accidental holdings ot on
lands. A Beaumont oil man who
has been operating in the Eloctra
field and has come to Ardmore, told
the story of a man at F.lectra who
had acidentally made more money
than he had ever dreamed he would
own. This man operated a saloon
in Electra. The town w-jnt dry in
a prohibition election and the saloon
keeper was thrown out of employ
ment. He owned same land, but no
one would make him an offer on it.
The an went from bad to worse un
til his children did not have suffi

cf the man took up his children,
bought apparel lor them and sent
them to school. One day oil was
found, a purse of gold v.as offered
the former saloon man for his hold

to grow and a new school house was
needed. A few odnterpris'lig citizens
began a subscription list, to obtain
funds with which to erect a school
building in keeping with the growth
f tii a town. The former saloon
keeper was approached. He asked
to see tho list and when he had fin
ished asked .how much they expected
to raise. The reply was made that
J3.000 was needed. The- man tor
to shreds the subscription list and
gave his own check for the full
amount needed." A people who is

who first picked up the children and
