The comlitlnns of the highways In

to smooth, hard roads throughout hla

of the btiildinps ond the gigantic cc ile

" This splendid road fai near t Grande, Oregon. It Is built of Trap Rock and has
proVrn of Inestimable benefit to a tin stretch of country. Nine such road3 are to be
built, rttoto upplled by the United States Oflia of 1'ubllo lloda.
from the railway window be can ae
roads thai are practically bottomless
and teams struggling through the
mlrc that Is nearly knee deep. Ho Is
perfectly pmszed that such conditions
should obtain. -II cannot understand
why It should be so in a country that
has such marvelous resources. The
fact Is that America Is the only coun
try In the world thnt Is rich enough to
etaiul the .drain, handicap and the
resets th3t bid roads impose. .
Again. t?ir wc ask, why Is It that
In tfcjj land, wtere eo many great
f-ncc-Ms have been rpred In so
niany Peida that we have utterly
failed In denting with the highways T
In the writer's opinion the reason will
b (mind la certain fundamental mis
conceptions. They date baek to co
lonial timet. In the early days the
people settled along the watercourses.
In the valleys. Farming wss done In
a primitive way. It was tU day pf
tfcf homespun. The hand loom and
ralng wheel were found every
where. Tbe people lived very simply;
what t'ney wore, they made; what
ihey ate. tfcey raised. The community
was self-centered and bad very little
to do with the settlement over the
Mils le the next valley. The spirit cf
home raid was everywhere domiiutnt.
The roads wjre regarded purely as of
Iocs I concern. They were Just such
roads os the people cared to build,
and whether good or bad It was no
one's bufince but their own.
! Thus tbe ceM-ept that the highways
were purely & local flatter and did
not cfnci'rn any one outelde cf tho
immediate vicinity became firmly es
tablished and beU undisputed sway
until atimit 20 years ago. when a New
jersey man made a discovery that
was far more Important than finding
the north pole, and that wns that tho
roads were public property they be
longed to all the people and as such
it was the etate's duty to take up the
question of highway improvement and
not leave the whole burden upon the i
township where the amount of taxable i a wide belt, suspenled from ar. over
property was limited. It was shown j bend rrll. while tbe feet are attached
"in.: the world's food supply had to I to a pair of ropes running over ru!-paaa-'er
these roads and that bad . 1ts ar.d adjustablo to various re
roads Increased the cost of delivery j quiremi nts.
made tbe uflo" supply intermlttant In- j The pupils thus suspended are then
ctead of constant and that bad roads j taught hov: to perform the movements
produced a nwry burden to everyone of the breast stroke until the ncti m
surf was a serious economic error. A
movement was started for state aid .
In road building. It met great oppo- j
sitlon. and principally from those who
would most greatly benefit from It 1
the farmers. Tfcey feared it was a
scheme to take the roads out of their
hands, and no telling where they
would land or what taxation would be
put upon them, but the iuov?uient
crew because It was right In two or
three years after the people had had
the experience of building roajs un
der the plan, had used and paid for
them they found it was a splendid In
vestment and that instead of adding
to their burdens the good roads too'k
many burdens off. The plan became
so popular opposition died out ami
those who at first were troniyl
nc.ilnst the plan were soon nrtionR Us
foremost advocates.
New Jersey began state siM with an
api roiM iai inn f $".ii.ntM per t;r, this
sum vas :(ion increased to i-io times
the amount. Tho titate iii.; plan of
road buil.liur: spread from : late to
Mr.to. until now fully half of the states
l:ae adoptt l it, and it has everywhere
proved popular and Mieeessfiil. It is
the plan that gets the ma.!:; mil so
distributee the burden that l!n taxa
tion Is not. appreciably biirb' r than it
was before. State aid v.m:!d have
le n impractical in the early .lays of
tile republic, but now under llio country-!.
le pia.i of distribution of food
products and tlie factory output and
1 ho enormous amount of city and cor
porate property, nil of which is
benefitted by Rood roads. The plan re
moves a heavy burden from tho farm-
n. by requiring all classes of property
to ht;in,l Its just proportion of (lie cost.
N. w York presents a striM-i.j exam

sentiment and the possibilities of road

S.Vi.Otin, but in five years by a heavy

building. Thus tho wave of progress
goes on with Increasing momentum,
and It will eventually sweep the wholo
When one looks back over the cam
paign for good roads In any community
be finds that when the subject was
first brought up scores of good peo
ple, became frightened at tho ex
pense, and they were loud iu denuncia
tion of the proposal, saying and be
lieving, that It meant the confiscation
of their property. That they never

could stand the tax and that good
roads spelled ruin. In every case, how
ever, where the plan was proceeded
with by state aid, the people were sur
prised that they had the roads and
that they did not feel the tax,
that, in fact, more and more roads
were demanded, up to tho lawful limit.
:Thus It has ever been, and probably
will bo, for years to come.
Good roads mean more social life,
more pleasure, less drudgery. Tliey
mean better rchools, a more enlight
ened and Intelligent citizenship, they
mean progress and civilization.
Utilization of Waste.
' A distinguished chemist once ob
served that "My lady writes tender
sentiments to her lord with ink made
.frcra an eld copper coffee pot. on paper
mada from old collars." Tho uUliza
tlou of waste products, which is add
ing bo enormously to the wcalih of
t)ie world, furnishes many such fan
tasti tulautptions.
"Cite m," Ir. Long said, "the sew
age of New York, and, f will relurn
you yearly the superior milk of 100,000
cows." The waste soapsuds from
woolen factories which used to pol
lute hundreds of rivers. Is now precip
itated and the ccagulum Is pressed
into bricks and converted Into supe
rior illuminating gas. These are only
examples of the ingenuity of man.
That the field Is far from exhausted Is
instanced in the estimate that from
COO to 1,000 tons of fine coal are
thrown away every day in the ashes of
New York. It is not Impossible that
some one will shortly invent a pro
ro for reclaiming thi3 wasted ma
terial. Teaching School Girls to 6wim.
