Wi 'Some of the Other itPash s Are Bolng. To show our people how far we are behind many if not most of the parishes of this State in the nmatter of good.roads, in spite of our recent one hundred thousand dollars appropriation for that purpose; we clip the following from a recent issue of the N. 0. States: h: e letter to the Plaquemine Champion Mr. Charles E. Seh wing points out that since last April provision has been made in the parishes of Ascension, A5 s!.mption. Lafourehe, St. James and Iberville for the construction of 149 miles of graveled Woad, the mileage thus divided: As sumption, 50; Ascention, 26; Iberville, 36; Lafourche, 7 and St. James 30. Within another year all these roads will be completed and in use and there will be a highway extending from the West Baton Rouge parish line to Thibodeaux and from the Ascension line to St. John. Jefferson parish has already voted some $200,000 for roads. But here comes Calcasieu I(what is left of it) with a bond issue for good roads, just ratified by its people, of Nine Hundred Thousand Diolars! Just think of it, ye mossbacks in and out of the Police Jury of St. Landry! Commenting on this magnifi cent stride forward, the same far-sighted paper of a later date 1 said: We congratulate our south. western neighbors on their pub lie spirit, May their example I encourage other parishes to ad. dress themselves to this most im. portant of all public improve ments. Louisiana is seeking iT ;igra tidio from the Middle West and Northwest. When the farmer of these sections send heir: emissaries hemrerto look over t e conditions, what they willn p si+er of equal imunortance ith the fertility of the soil and `'ie geniality of the climate athe means of transportation. . t home they are used to goci% roads. They have long swe learned that bad roads constitute the highest tax they have toPay. and that the primary asset of - successful farming is means·l of easy access to the markets with their products. The best advertisement Cal casieu could possibly make of her': resources is. this $900,000 bond tax, for the immigrant who is worth while will choose his :rew home in that parish which offers the most and the best highways, other conditions being fairly equal.
