As to Good Roads.
If we have one hobby it is the hob
by of good roads. We are so firmly
convinced that there is no one thing
which can add so much to the com
fort and convenience of those who
live in the country and that will pay
them such good returns as money put
in permanent road works, that maybe ha
we have injured ourself in the
estimation of some people who are an
so narrow as to believe that one who It
advocates a tax for road building is irn
an enemy to the farmer and a high th
tax man. That may be but we are
firmly convinced that no one thing; fe
can benefit the people of this coun- ir
try as money put in permanent road c
building. We shall continue to ad- wi
vocate such measures as will give us Ex
better roads and we are always glad f(i
to quote those who realize the im- he
portance of this question and who TI
are in posit:co; to k-ociw %-10.t they are do
talking ab . No ma i in the south an
travels more or observes closer ba
than the Rev. Sam Jones and we are he
delighted to see him agitating this ad
question and we trust he w'll keep t'
up this agitation until we get some wt
good roads. Here is an extract from be
one of his letter: m<
If ever there was a time when the
south ought to raise the good road sa,
question and pass resolutions un
animously on that subject, it is just
now. I wish that the cotton conven
tion assembled in Atlanta this w -ek
had 'have adopted some resolution to
the effect that they would not only bo
have the acreage cut in cotton, but be
the roads to town improved. Good
roads help the rural districts and en- T
hance values as much as railroads do
for the cities and towns. Cities and a'
towns reach each other over the rail
roads and the rural population reach
es town over .he wagon road. t()
It is just about as uncomfortable
to ride in an old wagon over an old b.
mud road as it is to ride over a ricke- -
ty, dangerous railroad on a slow, un
certain train. North Georgia will
* never reach the limit of her values
and her prosperity until every road
is macadamized and all her highways
are fixed for travel.
The Saving Habit. J.
Have you a bank account? If not,
why not? H
-Your wages are small? Demands
-. are large? Saving is impossible? il
Pardon us, saving is not impossi- H.
ble. The saving may not be large.
It may be beautinfully small at the WX
* first trial but the saving will be a be- Ca
ginning, and it will grow. There are
* several reasons why you should have i'.
a bank account, however modest it
First of all, some day you will need
some ready money. Sickness, lossH
of work, a slight turn in the wheel ofH
fortune-what will you do?
Another reason may be found in wI
content and peace of mind. He who Sv
ha-s some savings feels more secure
.than does the spendthrift. Discon- pe
tent and worries dog the footsteps Jo
of the man who. lives up all his in
But the big reason is this: The Pi
saving habit is reflex in its action. It
is an index of character. It is easy D1
to spend money. It requires effort
to save it. The flabby-minded man t
lets go his money recklessly. The
strong man resists the strong temp- to
tation to spend more than he can af- to
ford and in resisting his temptation, or
Nor need one grow stingy and in:
hard-hearted. There are many in- ta
ducements for a young man, especial- pr
ly, to let go oi his money. He is urg- b(
ed in a hundred ways to squander his to
hard-earned dollars foolishly. He or
who resists is laying the foundation th
.for a strong business character. to
There are thousands, especially in cc
the cities, who, dlrawving good salaries
gauge the outgo by the income. They sh
do not save a cent. And it is usually 19
these viho envy the successful and pe
point to the latter as lucky ones, m
whereas it is true that the foundation to
