1 will tell you why 1 Imvo
changed about the good roads
bond issu. At lirst I was op
posed to it. beeaust I thought it
scheme for the auto owners.
Later I find that a number of
people in Sturkville who are op
posed to the bond issue for good
roods, say: “Why build good
roads for the fanner when ho pays
only one-third of the expense,”
aid these same gentlemen say to
the former: “Why le your lands
be taxed just to let Sturkville get
good roads.” They sing a song
just to suit the people they are
talking to.
But tlii.s is not my main reason.
This year’s crop is short. I have
several teams and several hoys
that will have nothing to do be
fore spring, because the tie busi
ness has closed down and leaves
us all idle. Cotton is short owing
to drouth and boll weevil, and
what wo have cannot bo sold ex
cept at a loss, owing to the war.
livery tning wo eat is high and I
hardly see.how we cun live another
year. We will not make enough
to pay running expenses and it in
only at the mercy of the banks
that wo expect to pull through,
but suppose the Beat spuuus
SIBO,OOO.Uu on good roads the
coming year. That will give
work lor our idle teams, our idle
hands and put more money in Hie
country than we have had for
years. If the roads are built 1
expect to take off $2,000.00 of the
money, and don’t you forgot it.
Me and my boys can haul rock,
grade roads and work our teams us
ns well. If we can’t got more out
of this good road business than it
cost it will l>e only because we do
not try. You can’t tell mo that
any people cun spend $180,000.00
in Beat 1 and me not get my share
of it, and it you cannot get yours,
brother farmer, it is your own
fault. We are the people it will
help when it is being built, be
cause we will have public works at
our doors. We are the pdoplo it
will .help when the roads are
completed because we use them
allthe time.
I was in the sheriff’s office the
other day and asked to see how
much the lawn of Starkville would
pay and how much the rest of the
Beat would pay. 1 found to my
surprise that fStarkvillo will pay
twice as much us the remainder of
the Beat. Htarkville pays on
shout $1,000,000.00, and the re
mainder of the beat, all told, pays
only about half that much. Then
the railroads pay almost as much
as all the farmers of he Beat.
You can’t tel me the farmer won’t
gain by .this. Ifdont|you think so,
go to the trouble to go to the sher
iff’s office and Jask Mr. Kickels to
show you who pays the money.
Hurrah tor good roods. Let ’em
come. Pkavini; Bill,.
