The Sequatchie Vallev is beauti ful provided one had wings to view it by, but you positively cunnot eeo Uio coi'nty for the dreadful roads, A go-cnrl, a carriage, a wagon or an automobile are out of ilie ques tion. Only a mule and a man who Iihs lout all serine of feeling, physi cal, moral. political and religious, can travel such roads, I was going to say, but I will dihiigo it and say only a man wlm lots infinite pa tience, unending endurance, and who has vowed never to break the second commandment should risk his life or bin reputation upon them. Nature gave to the valley beauti ful scenery, a fertile yielding soil, and such environments should pro duce progressive, public-spirited men, Every man in the county whu- opposes any measure whatso ever that assures us good roads should bo buried alive to the tune of Tom Hood's 'Hattle his bones over the stones, Only a poor pauper whom nobody owns " When Rome ot old conquered the then known world, she hewed her way into every country by the building of the famous Roman toads, and civilization followed fast in the way of every Roman road. There is nothing else under the sun so civilizing as well kept roads wherever you find them tor you can count on good schools, thrilty churches, and prosperous people. The man who hauls his produce to market over a fine road holds his head more erect, carries himself were proudly than the mat) who hag all the style thumped out of him jolting over the stones and in to the ruts. Progress and prosper ity go hand in hand with good roads. Let us all join bands and girdle the county with u system of fine roads. A WOMAN. , CURTISVILLE. Special to the News.
