Total 20 cars. Another Factory. In a conversation with several business men we find them favora ble to the organization of a factory which would give employment to a number of hands. The line of goods to be manufactured is staple and as there is no one manufactur ing this line in this vicinity there would be a large field in which to sell the products. It would also keep thousands of dollars here which now goes to other towns for tnet,e goods. The plan proposed should interest all our people as the factory in addition to -giving us an other factory with a good weekly pay roll would pay a good dividend and therefore would help all lines of business in Monroe City. There are some things to overcome before the factory could be started but that can easily be done and in over coming these obstacles for the new factory many people who might not be interested in the factory would receive a benefit. Let us secure this factory and thus help all lines of business in Monroe City. A Booster. The Democrat boosts everything which it considers for the best in terests of this section. We can't help it as we are built that way We are for progress. We can see great possibilities in a Water Works and Sewerage System for Monroe City. It will greatly benefit all of us - even the knockers, and they will find it out after while. They owe the boosters a debt which they can never pay. ; Teachers' Review Term. The Madison Review Term will begin May 22 and continue five weeks, school holding six days each week. All subjects required for county certificates will be included. Pupils should bring text books. Tui tion for the term is Five Dollars Board may be secured at reason able rates. C. E. Stephens, Prin. A party composed of Wallace Bond, Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Conway, 1 Henry Smith and Will Longmire went to Centralia, Sunday in an auto to attend the dedication of the new Christian Church in that city. Mr. Bond erected this building and is being highly complimented by the people of Centralia upon the superior construction and fine ap pearance of this building. We just received a big shipment of Lawn Swings which we ore sell- ing at reduced prices. A. Jaeger. BETTER ROADS. Law Makes Provision For Bonding County to Build Good Roads -Pay For Them While Using The Best Way. Section 10520 of the Revised Statutes of 1909 provides that when ing when you are expected to par ever any 100 tax paying citizens of j ticipate in the graduating Exercises any county may petition the County which will be held here Saturday, court asking that a proposition be jun6i 10th. I desire to call your submitted to the qualified voters to - attention to this, the most impor bond the county for the purpose of tant day 0f your sch00i career. You making good roads, it shall be the are expected to be present at the duty of said county court to order opera house at 9:30. The program an election be held within forty-five 0f tne day will be both entertaining days after making said order to de- j and instructive. The program will termine whether or not the bonds j be varied and will include address of the county shall be issued for es Dy men prominent in schoo the purpose of building better roads. The mbnpy spent on the roads in the past is largely wasted as the ' roads are very unsatisfactory and j the cost of maintainance is very large. However, there is no criti cism to be placed on any one as there is not enough money raised under the present system to main tain the roads, to say nothing of t building good roads. As ii now is about $35,000 is spent annually on maintainance of roads which are never satisfactory. Suppose the county is bonded for $500,000 and 20 yeai bonds issued therefor. Then place a tax suffici ent to pay one-twentieth of the principal each year. The first year there will have to be paid $25,00tt on bonds and $20,000 interest, making- a rotal of $45,000 on only $10,000 for more than we now pay' for maintainance and while now for a considerable part of the year we only have long strips of mud where we would have goods under the bonding sys tem and then we get the good roads for only $10,000 more the first yean Every year after this we pay $1000 less as we have paid off $25,000 of the bonds and at the end of ten years would only be paying what ve now pay for the excuse for roads At the end of 15 years we would be paying only $30,000 or $5000 less than at present and would all the time have good roads which would save the farmers thousands of dol lars every year. If we borrow this $500,000 we will get the money and the good roads as practically all the $500,000 would be spent for labor and materi al in Monroe County. This added to the money here would greatly stimulate business, and aid prosper ity. There is much complaint about freight rates but freight rates are nothing compared to the toll we are now paying for roads as statis tics show that it costs Missouri farmers more to haul their produce to the railroads than than the cost of freight charges. The saving in cost of hauling; freight over the roads alone would be more than we have to pay to get the good roads over which it would be a pleasure to travel at any time, 'oods roads would make our land more valuable. It would! Paris, Mo., May 9, 1911. then be divided into smaller farms, j there would be fewer acres of idle We have the most beautiful line innH thP would he more fnrnurs!of Hammocks ever shown in the and more prosperity, our population would increase as would our taxa ble wealth. This kind of improvement will benefit all of us. Much more could be written on this proposition and the Democrat will continue to boost for good roads. This plan of a c . : ity bond issue looks goodsto us II does it strike you? We want to li.'jr from you. Get in line and help us boost for good roads.
