One Driver May Die.
Two accidents cut into the even
ness of the day, leaving Jack Lecain,
a Delage substitute driver, possibly
fatally injured; Tom Rooney, who
was driving brilliantly in one of the
three green Premiers, wfith a broken
leg, and Rooney’s mechanician, Jim
McAllister, badly bruised.
Lecain’s car flopped over suddenly
on the north stretch. His mechani
cian jumped and was able to get out
from under the hood so that he rolled
along unhurt.
Rooney’s car swung into the wall
at the top of the rail at the south
end of the field. McAllister was
thrown over the rail into the outfield
and Rooney was caught when the car
rolled back.
Speculators Grow Weary.
A fair-sized crowd saw the race
and cheered the drivers when the
latter would save their speed stunts
for display before the grand stand,
but toward the end an apathy settled
down over the watchers w T hen it was
seen that the speed being made was
nothing phenomenal.
Some Quit Early.
One by one the drivers dropped;
beginning at the fifth lap and continu
ing until the eighty-third. One after
another dropped into the pits for tire
changes, spark plugs, gas and oil.
It was only after the hundredth
lap had marked the end of 250 miles
that a definite conclusion might be
drawn as to the winner. Resta’s pace
fell off then and he never tried to bet
ter it, so that his final time for the
300 miles w T as 3:36:10.8, a speed of
only <83.26 miles an hour, which is
nearly seven miles an hour less than
the speed at this period of last year’s
500 mile race.

Economic Benefits Easily Recognized—
Improve Social Conditions in
Rural Sections
(Prepared by the U. S. Department of Agriculture)
Use of Split-Log Drag, Arlington Farm, Virginia.
It is estimated that the people of
this country annually waste $250,000,-
000 because of bad roads. Investiga
tions have shown that the average
cost of hauling on roads in the United
States is 23 cents per ton per mile.
It costs the farmer more to haul a
bushel of wheat 9.4 miles, the average
distance from farm to shipping point,
than it ordinarily costs to ship it
from New York to Liverpool. In
France, England and Germany, consu
lar reports show instances where the
cost of hauling agricultural products
is as low as 10 cents per ton per
mile. If the farmers of this country
could reduce the cost of hauling to 13
cents per ton mile, they would save
about $250,000,000 which now repre
sents their ‘‘mud tax.”
The benefits of good roads are nu
merous and far-reaching. They are a
powerful factor in promoting better
farm conditions throughout the coun
try. They make the farmer more in
dependent of seasonal and weather
conditions and permit him to take bet
ter advantage of favorable market and
prices. They increase the value of his
farm and so enhance his material
wealth. They promote better agricul
tural methods and are necessary for
an efficient rural delivery and parcel
post. They have a profound effect on
our country schools and the home life
on the farm. There are indeed few
investments which the farmer can

country, .it is a well-known fact that
in our rural schools the attendance
almost invariably shows a marked de
crease during the periods when the
roads are bad. Another point worthy
of consideration is that the one-room
school is being supplanted by larger
consolidated schools throughout those
portions of the country where condi
tions make it practicable to convey
children to school at the public ex
pense. Roads passable at all times
are most necessary for successful
school consolidation. There is abun
dant evidence to prove that any ex
tensive road improvement is followed
by better schools and better school
attendance. In some of these schools,
advanced courses have been intro
duced, and it has been possible to
employ teachers having special quali
fications and training.
With good roads, some of the ad
vantages of the city can be brought
to the country. Social gatherings be
come more frequent, and improved
social conditions exert a decided ef
fect upon the principal objections to
life in a rural community—loneliness
and isolation.
This is due partly to the decreased
cost of hauling and partly to the fact
that a good road makes the farm a
more desirable place to live.
Moreover, improved roads have a
market effect on both the amount and
character of production. For exam
ple, around the typical small town,
when the roads are not improved,
truck gardening, dairying and other
forms of intensive farming are con
fined to a small zone, immediately
surrounding the town, which is usu
ally scarcely sufficient to supply the
local demand. Without good roads
the production of perishable goods at
any considerable distance from mar
ket or shipping point is too hazard
ous an undertaking to be profitable.
With good roads the produce can be
brought to market with regularity and
in prime condition, two essentials in
successful marketing.
The parcel post makes possible di
rect marketing between producer and
consumer regardless of distance. But
here again the public roads play no
small part, affecting not only possible
extensions of the system, but also the
cost of its operation.
The condition of our rural schools
is closely connected with the condi
tion of the public roads. While it is
true that various factors contribute
to increase or decrease the attendance
at schools in given sections of the
from which he is so sure to re
ceive generous dividends as from good
A reduction in the cost of hauling
is one of the most immediate benefits
of a good road. A striking instance
of this is shown by investigations
conducted in Virginia where the av
erage distance from the farm to the
market is 7-8.10 miles, and the aver
age load for the staple crops is about
one ton. Assuming that the wages of
a two-horse team and driver are $3.00
per day, it costs the farmer in Vir
ginia an average of 26 cents per ton
mile to market his crops. If the roads
were graded and improved with a sur
facing suitable for the particular road
and region, the load could be in
creased at least 50 per cent and the
round trip made in the same or less
time without any additional hardship
on the team. This would represent
a clear saving of $1.50 per day to each
farmer in the state for every day in
the year in which he was engaged in
hauling to or from the market.
The increase in land values is an
other benefit that is noticeable wher
ever road improvement takes place.
After Eight Years
Edgerton Testimony] Remains
Time is the best test of truth. Here
is an Edgerton story that has stood the
test of time. It is a story with a point
which will come straight homo to many
of us.
Mrs. A. D. Humphrey, Blaine Street,
Edgerton, Wis., says: “I suffered
from w T eak kidneys for several years.
I had a dull ache through my kidneys
and often felt weak and worn out. In
a snort time after I began using Doan’s
Kidney .Pills, I felt better and I
steadily improved until I was well.”
(Statement given July 22, 1907.)
After a lapse of more than six years
Mrs. Humphrey said: ‘‘l seldom have
any kidney trouble now, but when I
do. a few' doses of Doan’s Kidney
Pills fix me up all right again.”
Price 50c at all dealers. Don’t sim

Dangers of Draft.
Drafts feel best when we are hot and
perspiring, just when they are most dan
gerous, and the result is Neuralgia,
Stiff Neck, Sore Muscles, or perhaps
an attack of Rheumatism. In such
cases apply Sloan’s Liniment. It stim
ulates circulation to the sore and pain
ful part. The blood flows freely and in
a short time the stiffness and pain
leaves. Those suffering from Neural
gia or Neuralgic Headache will find one
or two applications of Sloan’s Lini
ment will give grateful relief. The
agonizing pain gives way to a tingling
sensation of comfort and warmth and
quiet rest and sleep is possible. Good
for Neuritis too. Price 25c at your
