Advertising is to the merchant
what plowing and sowing is to the
farmer. Imagine a farmer trying
to raise a crop by sitting on the
fence as he looks over a ten-acre
field wishing that a nice crop of
wheat or corn would spring up in it.
Ridiculous, isn't it? But not more
so than a merchant who hides a
stock of goods away in a storeroom
and then sits on the counter, hoping
that people will come in and buy.

Report of Road Commissioner.
To the Houorable County Court of
Hardeman County:
I hereby submit this, my Fourth
Quarterly report of the public high
ways and bridges of the County for
the year 1900. I have traveled
over a large portion of the County
since my last report and have an
swered every call that was made on
me when my services were needed,
have answered four petitions for
opening and changing roads, as will
be seen from my reports on same
which are in the possession of the
Clerk, to be acted upon by your
ourt. During the last quarter I
ave endeavored to impress upon
each district contractor to do all
necessary work on roads, to patch
and repair them when needed. In
some districts the work has been
somewhat satisfactory when we take
into account the limited amount of
road lax to be used in same. Roads
in other parts of the County, are
not what they ought to be, having
been neglected by the contractors
and hands. There are several dis
tricts in the County that need more
road funds, 5 cts. tax not being suf
ficient to keep the roads and dis
trict bridges as they should be kept,
while other districts can make out
to get along as they have in the
past with 5 cts. tax, but we need to
have better roads aud could have
with an additional ." cts. tax. I
therefore would most respectfully
recommend to your IlonorableCourt
that you assess eight days labor to
be used on the roads when needed
and levy a highway tax of 10 cts.
The public roads of the County cer
tainly need more grading and bet
ter . attention than we have given
them in the past. After this year
we midht reduce the time and tax.
The roads being in better corrdition
than now, with the experience of
the past year, I hope to manage the
public highways in a more system
atic way and that the people will
lake more interest in having better
roads and bridges throughout the
County. While I am your Road
Commissioner I earnestly desire that
the members of your Court and the
public generally will notice more
closely after defective bridges and
report them to me or to the Chair
man of your Honorable Court. I
have worked in the interest of the
roads in different parts of the Coun
ty 45 days. Thanking you for your
past favorable consideration and so
liciting your cooperation during this
year, I am your servant,
S. F. Nuckolls,
County Road Com.
