Nothing helps a farming community |
more than better roads. A road over
which a farmer can haul 100 bushels of
grain at a load is worth much to the
farmer. It adds value to his land,
you don't believe it go out and talk with
the man whose farm lies along one of
the fine macadam roads and see if he
docs not regard his land as worth from
$10 to $20 per acre more than land lying
several miles from such a road.
Idaho needs better roads more than
any other state in the Union. The great
"North and South Highway" will be of
great Jjenefit to the state from a scenic
and sentimental standpoint, but it will
not be of nearly as proportionately much
value as good roads through the farm
ing sections. The highways which it is
proposed to build to connect northern
with southern Idaho will be of conveni
ence to the faw who have occasion to
visit the state capitol or the southern
part o f the state by automobile, but
they are comparatively few.
The good road that reaches the farms
where the wealth of the state is pro
duced will benefit more people, per mile,
than any such highway as that to be
built from here to Boise. If we can help
the farmers to market their crops at
WE NEED BETTER ROADS.
less expense and make it easier for them
to reach the towns where they do their
trading we will have gone a long way
toward increasing the production of farm
produce and toward making life more
pleasant on the farms.
Of course we need trunk lines,
need better roads between here and Spo
Jtane, which is the natural market for
this section. We will have such roads
in the very near future. We already
•ave much of the road built and only
need connection with the Palouse and
the state highways across the line in
Washington. When this is provided our
farmers here can take truck loads of
farm produce directly to Spokane.

There is much encouragement in the
report of City Health Officer Adair that
j}j ere were only 26 new and very mild
cases of influenza in Moscow last week,
as compared with 39 the previous week,
and there have been no new cases in
two days. But that is not grounds for
relaxing our vigilance. We must be
more careful than ever and not be like
Spokane and Walla Walla, which towns
raised the quarantine and threw every
thing "wjde open" only to have # second
and worse epidemic which required
"putting the lid on" tighter than ever.
Lives are too precious to be gambled
with in that fashion. Moscow must use
the utmost care and vigilance to stamp
out the disease which has already proved

Six hundred new cases appeared
in Spokane Sunday and Monday and
the increase is blamed onto the peace
celebration lasting three days of the pre
vious week. It may be that the influx of
people from surrounding towns helped to
spread the disease, hut our great fear
is that the people who visited Spokane
from here may have been exposed and
bring the disease here in a new form. It
is more likely that Spokane will spread
the disease throughout the Inland
pire than that neighboring towns
carrying it to Spokane. That city
had more than 7,500 cases and 250 deaths
