If thev had collie We suppose they would have proceeded to christen Uhe route as the "St. I, oitis-Arcadia proei ttve highway lias a larger significance, if fully carried out, ami eventually it will he, it will really be an Inter state Highway from St. Louis to Little ltock, Ark. Hut there was a hichway dedica tion just the same, ull to the credit, enterprise ami progressive spirit of j St. Francois county, through which a splendid stretch of good rock and; gravel road bus prat tloally h 1 1 completed from the Jefferson county Hue to Bo Terra, and through Flat River 10 Farwinaton and thence ! vin Doe Kun ami Iron Mountain to the Iron Bounty line. Judges Mar shall and Kinaer ol the County Court authorised the dedication of the St. Kranooil county purt of the "St. Louis to Little ltock'' highway, and it was one of the feature events of the Drummers' Convention. Hon Bdward A. Roaler, preeldenl of the Parmlngtou Bualneea Men's club, was chosen as master of oere monies. A large ami interested crowd gathered around the stand 111 tin-Court House yard and entered freely into the spirit ol tbeorcaslou.

It be- unged to the great Interstate highway from St. Louis to Little Rock, apeak ing for the traveling men in seta nun thev were not onlv interested ill road development, but also cn- pledged to help ill the movement in every way ios sible. He closed with 11 story showing that grass growing in the -mall towns meant permanent smi irreparable ruin to the cities, ami the country gem-ram. end that without good roads Em imall towns would not cvisi. The chairman in introducing Col, Robert Sellors, of the St. Francois County Automobile Club, stated thai autos had only a limited right on the roads. Their principal influence in the good roads' development was to call at tention to the needs of them. No one. 111 nis judgment, had done more c biing SUOttl the road development of count v than Col. Id. belt Sellors. whom he introduced, Mr. Sellors gracefully scknowledged the compliment paid 03 the chairman and disclaimed any such honor. He smphssiaed that the road being dedi cated under DO cirCOVIStenCCS should be called an automobile highway. It was for bueeiea and pedestrians; it was for I he betterment ol facilities fur the farm er to market hi- produce, ami fur the closer communication between towns. Although lln-rc were present rrprc-.c n latives of the treadle Clnbhe sapresssd Ins regret that thev would lint accede to the request i" take part iii the eaei Cls.-s. rio lar a- Hie piesem ueiiie.iiion was concerned, they were therefore out of the rnnolag. He added that in or der to biiug anottt 11 successful roadway system the ladies must lie interested. Mr. Koicr in introducing Judge John Marshall. Presiding Justice of thcCoUC ly Court, -aid that wind did not build roads. Talking much of dedicating highways ami doing nothing more dia not accomplish results. Such things take money and execuli-c ability. St. Francois county in the past H or to vi-urs had been blessed by having goisl executive officials, and the present road SyebM was due to the County Court, and its immediate predecessors.
