Mr. Cobb writes: When I read the utterances of those conscientiousless gentlemen who could not be brought to bear the idea of going to war with any nation for any reason, 1 wished with all my soul they might have stood with me in Belgium on that August day, jwhen land the rest of the party to which I belonged saw the Ger man legions come pouring down, a cloud of smoke by day and a pillar of fire by night, with terror riding before them as their her ald, and death and destruction and devastation in the tracks their warshod feet left upon a smiling and a fecund little land. As though it happened yester day instead of thirty months ago, I can recreate in my mind the nhysical and the mental stage settings of that moment. I can shut my eyes and see the German firing squad shooting two Belgium civilians against a brick wall. I can smell the odors of the burning houses. Yes, and the smell of the burning flesh of the dead men who were in those houses. I can hear the sound of the footsteps of the fleeing vil lagers and the rumble of the tread of the invaders going by so countlessly, so confidently-, so triumphantly, so magnificently disciplined and so faultlessly equipped. Most of all, I can see the eyes and the faces of sundry German officers with whom I spoke. And when I do this I see their eyes shining with joy and their faces transfigured as though by a spIendnrvisjJBBC-can hear'them' nHBythe justice of threuxaQSB; not seek ing excuse for the reprisals thev had ordered; not, save a few ex ceptions among them,' deploring the unutterable misery and suffering their invasion of Bel gium had wrougnt; not concern ed with the ethical regrets of helpless and innocent noncom batants but proud and swollen with the thought that, at every onward step, ruthless and deter mination and being ready had brought to them victory, con quest, spoils of war. Why these men were like beings from an- - other world a world of whose existence we, on this side of the water, had never dreamed. I was an eye witness to crimes which, measured by the stand ards of humanity and civiliza tion, impressed me as worse than any individual excess, any indi- j vidual outrage, could ever have ' been or can ever be; .because these crimes indubitably were in stigated on a wholesale basis by order of officers of rank, and must have been carried out .under their personal supervision, di rection and approval. Briefly, what I saw was this: I saw wide- - areas of Belgium and France in -'which not a penny's worth of :" wanton destruction has been per mitted to occur, in which 'System county impossible with the limited funds at their disposal. It, therefore resolves itself into building first the main roads, because they ac commodate the greatest number of people and the people demand that the main roads shall be kept in good condition. When aid for. the building of public roads is given by a state, they usually designate a system of roads upon which to expend the money, the idea being to lay out a system which accommo dates the greatest number of people and can be built in a stated number of years with the funds available. Kentucky adopted the inter-county seat system which comprises about eight thousand miles. Other states have the same svstem or else what is termed a of Roads." The inter seat system usually comprises about twice the mileage of the usual system of roods as outlined in .most states, and consequently serves more people, yet requires longer to build. Statistics show that che inter county seat system will accom modate about ninety per cent., of the traffic of the county, the people living on secondary roads will in most cases travel over one of the inter county seat roads in the transaction of their business affairs. They would at least use the road for a part of its dis tance, because practically all sec ondary roads lead into one of the inter-county seat roads and the" people living in such sections ap preciate "and want the main roads built first. It lies with the fiscal court of the county to select the road or roads to be built- each year and tne public should appreciate the fact, that all the 'main roads can not oe built at one time because of the lack of funds, and that the roads should be built in the order of their imDortance. and when the inter-county seat roads are built the State will extend iid to the building of other roads in a county. Only a part of the regular county road fund is used to take (advantage of State aid, the fiscal court using the remainder to work other roads in the county in whatever manner they deem proper. The highways are a system of transportation, the same as the rivers and railroads. A river is locked and damned, made suit ible for traffic before its tributa r ies, a railroad company always milds their main lines first and then the branch lines, and the ame sh ould apply to the build- I mcr of- roads first construct the main lines and then 'the tributaries.

The folly and extravagance of the American people are exciting thp comment not simoh of preachers, but of ether public men. Recently in the senate of the United States Senator Mc- Cumber of North Dakota, after stating that the American people are spending annually $13,000, 000,000 for liquor, tobacco and amusements, bitterly denounced their profligacy and extrav agance, charging that the high cost of living was due to waste and follv. He said: "This rev elry in extravagant habits, this unquenchable demand for amuse ments, for continuous mental in toxication, is undermining the sturdiness of our younger gener ation. The A.merican people seem obsessed with the idea that the main thing in life is amuse ment, play, entertainment." When the politicians realize the danger, it is high time that we were taking account of the situ ation, lest we become "lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God." Western Methodist. Why People Faint. , When in a place where there is a crowd and the air i3 stale and stuffy .there is almostalways some one who will fall over in a faint. It is plainly seen that some thing has happened to stop the tissue works. Perhaps you for get that your vitality must work all the time, and that if it stop ped for a' moment you would topple over. That is what happens when a person faints. The switchboard brain centers which control the balance of the body and the nerves which carry orders from the senses to the muscles of the legs refuse to act. You can guess the reason of this if you remember that "the f ce of the person who succumbs to this state is always pale. This gives you the hint that the I t t put IT OFF . '," .
