I ic n ESS 1HEAMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION MIDLAND TRAIL ROUTE AGAIN In Tuesday's Issue wo undertook to sound an alarm, concerning the Midland Trail hard-surfaced road route. For the reasons given then this road would be only a partial benefit to ML Sterling. We would have our people to understand this matter accurately, for, as we see It, ML Ster ling as a whole, should the route bo down Main street to Mays title street, thence with Maysville stteet north to the intersection of Mays TiMe street and the Hlnkston pike, and thence to the towns cast to Cat- Irttaburg and the seacoasL ft would be from Cincinnati and other cities and states of that direction to travel by way of the Dixie route; thence to a connection with the Midland Trail at Hrnkston pike, nearly a mile away from the business center of ML Sterling, sad travelers would know our city only as a dot on the map. Such a coarse' would impede ML Sterling's growth to the extent of our failure to impress the public that we aro "the best business city to the square foot in the! nonth." Will we invite such ,a route with such conditions? Can we afford I ft. Again, the traveling public from New York City, Philadelphia and other! cities passing through the celebrated Bluegrass section would enter Ken-j tucky at Catlettsburg and, reaching the junction, would view the country by way of Sldeview, Jorth Middletown and Paris, again leaving ML Sterling a mile away without even a view of "our new hotel." Of the hotel we are proud; we contended for it for more than two and one-half jwfli lumvoi otuuc! uuu no mo jjiuuu space tor tnia greatly needed. Hotel, but we would not be so selfish as to have the growth of our city, the best in many ways, hampered just to have the citizens of Lexington, Winchester, Hedges Station and Thompson's Sta tion to view the Hotel Montgomery This hotel will be a credit to ML Sterling, but remember it is only an infinitesimal investment as compared wfth the combined interests of our city, and hence we repeat, our people should devise a plan and put It into effect so that we would avoid such an error as is talked of now.' To hurt the business Interests of ML Ster ling hurts the money earning capacities of our hotel. We should have the Iople to view ML Sterling, to see her on her busiest days, to register at our hotels, not to pass by. However, the matter is now In the hands of federal and state enginers and the local county Authorities and while we sincerely hope a way may be devised whereby a change will bo averted, we feel confident those In authority will not overlook the best Interests of ML Sterling, as what bene Bts ML Sterling benefits the entire county.

"ODORLESS DRY CLEANING" MORE TELEGRAPHIC WEATHER STATIONS IMPOSSIBLE NOW Methods of weather forecasting used In Norway have been of consid erable interest to the weather bureau of the United States Department of Agriculture.

While radio teleg raphy may some day make this possi ble, practical consideration at pres ent makes it impossible to cafry out the suggestion. The number of telegraphic stations now reporting twice daily to the fore caster at Washington. D. C, is slight ly more than 200. The proposed in crease to make the distribution of sta tions in this country proportionate to those In Norway would require about 4,500 additional stations. Under tho most favorable conditions the data from the 200 stations now reporting can oe charted in 35 minutes, and, al lowing 15 minutes additional for gen eralizing the data, the forecaster is able to begin issuing forecasts with in an hour from the time of observa tion. If tho number of telegraphic stations should be Increased moro twan twenty-fold It would be physical ly Impossible to chart and generalize the data within a reasonable time af ter the observing hour, even If the present dlbtrlct forecast centers, of which there are five, should utilize reports from only such additional sta tions as would He within their respec tive geographic districts. LENGTH OF WORKING SEASON BIG 'FACTOR IN ROAD BUILDING The length of tho working season Is a most Important element In rood construction and one In which there Is considerable variation, accordlngto the Bureau of Public Roads of the United Statea Department of Agricul ture, which has collected data from all of tho states. Deducting Sundays only there are 313 working days In the year in Ala bama, Mississippi and New Mexico report that grading is possible on 300 of them. Neighboring states report as follows: Florida, 265; Louisiana, 260;' Texas. 275. Contrasted with these aro Maine with 110; New York, ICO; Wisconsin, J53; western Oregon, 100. In 14 Btates grading will prob ably be Impractical after the middle of November, and In some of them at ah earlier daje. Gravel surfacing can be placed in most of the statos on from 120 to 200 working days, although io of tbem re port a greater number. In 26 states concrete surfacing can be placed on from 100 to 160 days, and In 1G states on from 160 to 200 days.

BOUNTY vs. POISON In 15 years an Oregon farmer paid out $2,500 in bounties on pocket go phers, at 25 cents a piece, to get 750' acres of land cleared of these pests. His private opinion was that the boun ty men always left a fow anlmls so that they could come back again. A demonstrator of the Biological Sur vey of the United States Department of Agricultural visited this man's farm and showed him how to use poi son. The cost of the first application was $1.50 for poison and $21 for la bor for seven days' time. A socond application is yet to be made to com plete eradication, but after tho first application only one fresh gopher mound could bo found. RICHARDSON BROS.' SPECIALS Fruits of all kinds.
