In fact, the storekeeper might think, and rightly, too, that the fellow who would make such a propo sition a fit subject to send to Mendota; if he were to go into a hardware store and ask for a gift of a lawn mower because he had been trading there for the past year the chances are that he would not get the lawn mower unless he paid the price for it; if he were to go into a bank and say he thought he should have a present of $5 or $10 because he had a small deposit there the past year it is hardly likely his wish would be gratified; if he were to get on a passenger train without a ticket and tell the conductor the rail road company should take him to Chi cago free because he had continually bragged of the company to his friends he would be put off at the next sta tion. "Absurd as the above suppositious pucpq nrp thev are no more so than the idea of working a newspaper for free advertising. A newspaper man's space is as much his stock in trade as are the merchant's goods, a bank er's money or the transportation of a railroad company. Yet if an adver tising agency places a contract for $50 worth of advertising in the course of a year, it is very often the case that the newspaper man is asked to give from $5 to $10 worth of free ad vertising, sometimes more. "Newspaper men are largely to blame for this state of affairs. They hnvp nprmitted such a state of af The State Highway Department is receiving many inquiries in regard to the law which requires that advertis ing signs shall be removed from all fruit, shade and ornamental trees along the public highways. In order that there may be no misunderstand ing of this provision of the law, sec tion 64, page 4(14, Sessions Laws 1917, is here quoted in tun: "The County Highway Engineer and overseers shall protect all fruit, shade and ornamental trees along the sides of the public roads, and shall forthwith remove all signs and advertisements what soever that may have been nailed or fastened to any of said trees.

DRAINAGE ON COUNTRY ROADS A had mud-hole in a dirt road isn't so easy to remedy, and it often hap pens that when a load of rock is thrown into a mud-hole it results in two holes where there was but one. It is suggested by the State Highway Department that sometimes the worst mud-hole can be remedied by drilling down four or five feet and putting in a shot of dynamite, which loosens up the sub-soil and provides under drainage. In a number of counties it is nossible to put in vertical drains along the side of the road reaching ifou-n into the first strata of sand or gravel, which, will permit the water to be carried away, water is tne en emy of earth roads, and too much at tention cannot be given to the matter of drainage.
