' What a Difference.
In round numbers the country
spends a quarter of a billion dol
lars every year son its army and
navy, the biennial appropriations
carrying almost two dollars for
fhilitary and naval purposes for
each dollar devoted to other ex
penditures. If, in round numbers,
the country spends $300,000,000
every year on its army and navy,
it is terrifyingto contemplate the
expenditure of $6,000,000 (the
amount prayed for by a congress
man) on-good roads-2 cents for
good roads and 98 cents for sol
diers,forts;sailors and battleships.

to the everlasting disgrace of this
country: that in the ten.years from
1903 to 1912, ihclusive, a total of
39,808 people-the equivalent of
nearly forty regiments-were
killed or injured in the celebra

year was America's sanest Fourth
with the lowest record of casuali

Let's Get Busy.
Road building is becoming a
science, and instead of having the
work done under the competitent
direction of country or town of
ficials, the states are assuming
the responsibility of control, with
excellent results. In Massachu
settes road making under the
supervision of state officials has
become an art, and, as~a conse
quence the old Bay state is creat
ing a system of highways which
has few equals anywhere. Inci
dentally, as a direct result of the
construction of good roads, the
value of country property in
Massachusettes has considerably
increased. If good roads will so
increase the value of farm prop
erty in the old eastern states,
what may we not expect in this
country? Weare all equally in
terested in good roads. Let's get
