Mercer county farmers, through the efforts of J. N. Ellis, highway engineer of the county, have united in a unique plan for improving the dirt roads of the county. The St Joseph Gazette says: I he farmers throughout the en tire county have been taught how to use the D. Ward King road drag and the usefulness ot this simple device lias w:n thoroughly demon straled in tueir locality. The plan now being prompted is to set aside one afternoon in the near future when at the ringing of a bell, every farmer in the county and all the draymen and hucksters and livery men in the - towns will begin drag ging the roads. An agreement has been reached between the farmers aod Mr. Ellis will set the day when the work is to be done. It planned to drag every mile of road in Mercer county on this particular day. Mr. Ellis thinks it can be done in four hours, so that no farm er need Tieglect the work on his farm to any extent, whatever. The plans are now completed, the drags are ready and every farmer is wait ing with enthusiasm for the sound of the bell or the information over the telephone that road-dragging day has come. And there is sense m this unity of action on the road proposition, Much of our road work in the past has been rendered useless by a lack of concerted action, The farmer drags the roads by his farm, but is compelled to travel from the end of his fence into town through the ruts and holes that have been filled up by his neighbor. Through the Mercer county plan all the roads will be dragged, so that, if there be any virtue whatever in the dragging proposition, the Mercer county farm ers will find it. Honor Roll for February.

Everything else was a total loss because the entire home they rushed from it This leaves the families in a bad shape financially, funning time is right here. They have no furni ture, no beds, no clothing and not much to buy it with. John A. and Al Yates, neighbors of the families, have taken on themselves the duty of getting up a subscription for the benefit of the fire sufferers. Any one feeling disposed to help can see either John A. or Al Yates or Elbert Yates at F. & M. Bank. New Things. Yesterday we saw plans lovely office building for wether &, Meriwether.

It has proven a big success in Cal ifornia." Here is our reply to the question and to his statement: First, make a road and then talk crude petroleum. In California they first make and grade a road, then with a heavy road roller they solidi fy it as well as they can and then, a huge sprinkler loaded with crude petroleum passes over the road. The main object in using the petroleum is the same as when used by rail roads on their road beds, to shed the water from the bed and to lay the dust, not to solidify it. As long as the roads are used as drains as the road by the Sam Melson farm is, no system of road building will stand. Go look at that piece of road that should have been as level as a table and hard as a floor and learn a lesson. Then act upon the lesson learned. Mud Puppy. Did you ever see a mud puppy or 8 inches long? To look at it, is a cross between a Lizard, a bull frog and an eel. A disgusting sight, one that would make a Local Optionist think something had gone wrong with his head. And that is just what Dick Redmans hand came in contact with when it went into E. S. Hampton's mail box. Ezra put it there to frighten Dick, but he knew what it was and brought it to the city with him. Having received several ship-, i ments already, my stock of Wall Paners are comnlete. Will ha to show vou through mv Sorind s- t lections. Am sure I can please you in prices. WALTER H, MOSS.
