A course of leotures on geology and minerology ought to interest the natives in this section. The next best thing will be the Press' special mining edition. The volcano in South Africa has ceased eruption; now if we could slip a lid over the crater of ours in the Philippines, the silence would bo demonstrative, but not oppressive. There are thousands of good Democrats over in the glorious old First district, but no better ones than Ollie James, who was this week nominated by his people for Representative in Congress. Elk-ton Times. Over in the Second congressional district the candidates are referring to each other as "aristocrats" and "pumpkin heads." This kind of a campaign gives evidence also of the presence of "mutton-heads." In Crittenden county, the home county of Ollie James, he received 14S7 votes and Sam Crossland only 8. When a man stands that well among the Democrats of his own county he ought to go to congress or anywhere else he wants to go. Clinton Demoorat. Public Roads. Now that one of our hopes is about to be realized the going of Ollie James to Congress, we will have time to look after another that has long been delayed the building of good roads in Crittenden county. A county that has a United States senator, a prospect ive congressman, and the richest zinc mines in the world should havo as good public roads, as it is able to seoure. The people may be divided on some questions, but on this proposition all ought to get together. Before, however, we get good roads, or get a clear conception of any suggestion looking to this end, there is one error that must be dug up and cast out, root and branch, and that iB the idea that good roads can or will be had without money or price. An expenditure of money or its equivalent, muscle, must be made for food and raiment, and the same proposition is equally applicable to road building. Thejraanner of collecting the money or expending it is the only phase of the problem effected by law, and the discussion of the law feature of the matter comes properly after the money lias beon located. The money expended for tho necessities of lifo comes from the pockets of those who provide themselves with these necessities, excepting thoso unfortunates who aro at the poor house, or those depraved who steal. Now, tho moans for building roads must come from tho pockets of those who provide themselves with roads. There is no ovasion of tho truth of this statement Are you willing to contributo your quota of the moans for securing good roads? If you nro not, then you are not to any roasonablo proposal for good roads, This gets tho down to n good foundation, a fair and squaro understanding of tho question, and yougare in a po sition to lot yourself know whothor or not you aro for an improvement of our public roads. Talk tho mat- tor over with yourself. fl Caldwell county will have tho first complote Joplin typo of ore separating mill oreoted in this district. The capacity will bo 100 tons daily, which can be largely increased when greater develop ments of tho ore bodies make it necessary.
