A VERY I.I VE QUESTION1. (From the Enosburs Standard.) It Is certainly most prratlfyln? to not that tho State press shows no Inclina tion to let up on tho Rood roads agi tntlon. but on the contrary embraces every opportunity to present the sub ject in Its various phases to Its readers nnd to unre its Importance. It Is a sub ject resardlnir which there Is practical unanimity and the concerted activity and earnestness of tho "moulders of public tpnon" surely ought to be pro ductive of substantial results. The Burllncton Free Press concludes a sound editorial nrRument relatlntr to tin subject of autoe travel, good roads and home market for Vermont farmers, a follows: "Tho most effective wny to secure this auto travel nnd the consequent demand for hotel accomodations nnd the conse. quent demand for Rood, fresli meats and ! fresh vegetables and fresh fruit, is tc ! make the roads In the vicinity ns Rood i UH possible, Tho owners of mil r cars nave wireless communication '4- each other nnd when they are mapp'cs out - tour thej- naturally select th r-.

Plans for butldinp; summer b. tels on n larso scale and wnlttnir far atrels's to come to them over Vermont's pre sent highways Is simply putting the eart before the horse.
