"I hope to furnish you State con
victs for work on the Hickory Nut
Gap road within thirty days," Gov
ernor Locke Craig told State Engineer
W. S. Fallis of the state highway com
mission yesterday. "Just now the
prisoners are all busy on the state
farms planting the fall crops, a work
which ia absolutely necessary. As
soon as this hag been completed tho
men will be sent Into the gorge."
The '- state engineer spent a few
hours in Asheville yesterday and in
company with a board of trade ofll
ciai called on Governor Craig. Mr.
Fallis. who is very much interested
in the opening of the Hickory Nut
road reminded the gov - -nor that
Rutherford county had now made its
appropriation for the maintenance of,
the highway, in common with Bun
combe and Henderson. He also in
formed Governor Craig that the Du-J
Pont Powder company had given
him dynamite and blasting powder to
the value of $1,000 and still another
$1,000 worth of tools and equipment
for road work.
Cnvlcts on Road.
This statement of Governor Craig's
to the effect that the convicts from
the state farms would be transferred
to rebuilding the road in the gorge in
the first official information to that
effect and means a very great deal to
j the people in the Heart of the Blue
Ridge. Mr. Fallis declares. It has
been repeatedly pointed out that the
task is one requiring the resources of
the state if the road is to be opened
within any reasonable time. Even as
it is now the farmers in the Bat
Cave and Chimney Rock sections will
be isolated for many weeks and pos
sibly months, to come, it is said.
Governor Craig also 'agreed to fur
nish an engineer to make survey and
estimates of the proposed short-route
to - Marshall. As soon ag the county
commissioners of. Madison and Bun
come have formally made application
for the services of the engineer ho
will come here and this will mark
definite steps toward the construction
of the highway and the "unbottling''
of Asheville' to the west.

had just closed at Lexington. Ky., a
resolution was adopted urging that all

English Naval Critic Hector Bywater,
Writes Interestingly of Men
on Our Ships.
"We have it on the word of an En
glishman," says the Philadelphia
Press, "that the personnel of our navy
is better by far than that of Ger
many's sea force. . Indeed, he waxci
so enthusiastic as to say that the
American bluejacket of the present
day is a revelation to any one who
knew the old timer of ten or fifteen
years ago.
The Englishman is Hector Bywater,
one of England's leading naval writ
ers, who discusses the naval problems
of the United States in a recent issue
of the London Naval and Military re
cord. It is to be regretted that Mr.
Bywater did not compare, the efficiency
of our bluejackets to that of the Royal
Navy, but perhaps modesty forbid
him, or it may have been the censor,
who did not care to make public the
slightest whisper from an English
man that the British s sailors have
equals or even who knows ? supe
riors. Lest it be thought that this latter
supposition is an expression of pa
triotic pride, Mr. Bywater may be
summoned as a witness. According
to him the American bluejacket is
' ted, berthed and cared for. in a way
that astonishes those Who are ac
quainted with the best 'European
standards. Extraordinary pains are
taken with his general and profession
al education. The amount of head
work he is called upon to get through
may seem exaggerated and unneces
sary to European critics, but the re
sult certainly appears to Justify the
Men are not "astonished" nor do
they consider "extraordinary" what is
common to their perceptions. It is
fair to assume that Mr. Bywater is so
well acquainted with the British navy
that though he looks upon it with pride
it does not represent to him uncom-a,
mon achievement, but merely what is
to be expected from the British navy.
Therefore his use of superlatives in
regard to. our bluejackets may b5
taken as an opinion that he believes
our jackets are as good if not better
than the British.
Referring to the claim of Germany,
and the United States that they have
each solved the problem of converting
the land-lubber into an efficient man-o'-war's-man
within the three years,
Mr. Bywater writes that no 'unbiased
observer who . has seen the finished
article in both countries will hesitate
to award the palm to' the American
The mental machinery of the yokel

inferior to that ,of the average Ameri
can youth from the inland State;
but this fact does not of itself ex
plain why the latter, make the
better seamen. The advantage of the
volunteer system in naval recruiting
is that only youth are enrolled who
have, a natural inclination toward the
sea; whereas under conscription largo
numbers of young men are taken for
the naval service who have no inborn
aptitude or temperamental disposition
for the life."-
This is strong evidence from com
petent authority. But it only confirms
the opinion Americans have held for
a long time. We knew it, but we are
glad to have Mr. Bywater confirm
what we think of the men in the navy,
though they are few. There will soon
be more New York Herafld.

Vaccination , for typhoid fever is
not a fad, -as "some' people think, and
its disappearance or disuses may not
soon be expected. According to the
State Board of Health, typhoid vaccine
has come to stay and will do this on
its own merits. Wherever its value
has been intelligently . pursued, the
results have been a large number of
immunes, a small number of cases
and a much smaller number of deaths.
Wherever its use has been made com
pulsory, the disease has practically
disappeared. In other words, typhoid
vaccine is' no longer an experiment,
but one of the age's greatest discov
eries for , preventing sickness and
death. r
The question, how long does vacci
nation remain good, is yet to be answ
ered definitely. . People freshly vacci
nated with vaccine rarely get typhoid
and they very rarely die of typhoid.
But vaccination against typhoid offers
a measure of protection that is nearly
absolute. Its use is practically devoid
of danger and it offers protection, pro
bably, for much longer than three
t years. ; '- ... ; ;
J The vaccines are easy to get and not
difficult to give. ,The reaction attend
ing them are not severe; not more
than one or two per cent, react at all
severely. Even this, it may be said,
can be prevented by splitting the ini
tial dose, giving it in two instead of
one. ,
"On a recent visit to a typical rural
school in one of our Georgia coun
ties," says a writer in the Wesleyan
Christian Advocate, "I inquired from
the two-score children present how
many lived on the farm and received
the reply that over two-thirds of tie
children in this school came from
farm homes. I then inquired how
many wished to remain on the farm.
Not one single hand went up. Tin
next inquiry directed to the children
was, Why do you not wish to remain
on the farm when you grow up?" And
the girls and boys were frank in their
answers: "Too much work and and too
little money. Too much work and too
little play. We must go to town to
do the big things. Only the stupid
children and those who cannot gc;
away remain on the farm.'
'I then asked how many of the
boys and girls owned chickens, pigs,
calves, , gardens, flowers, playhouses,
books, and other good things on the
farm that one cannot get in the town.
Only one or two hands responded t
this inquiry. Around the scnooi
house there were mud and gullies
with no flowers, no walks, no im
Movements, n gardens. The teacher
was nointine the children away from
