As the afternoon train on the M. R. & B. T. railroad out of St. Louis, rolled into Desloge Tuesday, a for eigner started to get off with a heavy suit case.

No source of pow er is visible to account for the mo tion, which continues indefinitely.

'STATE ROADS" UNDER CONSTRUCTION State road construction in Taney and Montgomery counties has aroused an interest inmany other counties throughout the State, and the State Highway Engineer has been called upon to visit practically every sec tion of Missouri to officially designate "state roads." The United States De partment of Public Roads has ap proved the project for the Webb City Joplin-Galena road in Jasper county, and the work of construction will be commenced as soon as bids can be ob tained. The Cole county project, which provides for the construction of 25.8 miles of road emending east and west through the State Capital, is now in the hands of the Federal Gov ernment with the promise that its ap proval will be announced in the im mediate future. The work of sur veying the road connecting Jefferson City and Columbia has been started, and projects will be made both in Callaway and Boone counties. Per haps the greatest road development planned in any section of the State is in Southeast Missouri, where three counties have voted approximately two million dollars worth of road and bridge bonds. It is noticeable that the greatest road activity is south of the Missouri River.
