GOOD ROADS PAY FOR THEMSELVES TJ. S. Collects Data Showing Value Added to Land More Than Pays Cost. What the direct effect of changing bad roads into good roads has upon land value -and the general economic welfare of a community is shown in several concrete illustrations gathered by the United States department of ag riculture. The department has just issued " a statement on the subject, based upon a mass of . information gathered by the office of public roads. which is making a special study of the economic effect of road improve ment In the country. According to data, gathered, where good roads re place bad ones, the values of farm lands bordering on the roads increase to such an extent that the cost of road improvement is equalized, if not ex ceeded. The general land- values, as well as farm "values, show marked ad vances, following the improvement of roads. ' Among the illustrations cited by the department are the following: In Lee county, Virginia, a farmer owned 100 acres between Ben. Hur and Jonesville, which he offered to sell for $1,800. In 1908 this road ws improv ed, and, although the farmer fought the Improvement, he has since refused $3,000 for his farm. Along this same road a tract of 188 acres was supposed to have been sold for $G,000. The pur chaser refused the contract, however, and the owner threatened to sue him. After the road improvement, and with out any improvement upon the land the same farm was sold to the orig inal purchaser for $9,000. In Jackson county, Alabama, the people voted a bond issue of $250,000 for road improvement, and improved 24 per cent of the roads. The census of 1900 gives the value of all farm lands in Jackson county at $4. 90 . per acre. The selling value at that time was from $6 to $15 per acre. The cen sub of 1910 places the value of all farm lands in Jackson county at $9.79 per acre, and the. selling price is now from $15 to $25 per acre. Actual fig ures of increased value following road improvement are shown. - As the roads in no way affect soil fertility or quality of the farm, ad vahces are due essentially to the de crease in the cost of hauling produce to market or shipping point. Farms are now regarded as plants for the bus iness of farming, and any reduction In th?ir profits through unnecessarily heavy costs for hauling on bad roads naturally reduces their capitalization into values. Witji reduced costs for hauling, profits are increased, with the result that the farm plant shows satisfactury earnings on a higher cap ital value. The automobile also has begun to be an important factor in -increasing rural values where good roads are in troduced. 'Immigration is particularly marked where road conditions are favorable in fact, the figures of the department seem to Indicate that good roads indl rectlv increase the demand for rural property; and the price of farm land like that of any commodity, is ruled by the relation between demand and supply, WIRE SPARKS Cincinnati The supreme lodge of the Order of Moose, which will ho; its silver jubilee convention in this city, arrived to prepare for the fete.
