No more Important subject has
been presented for discussion at the
Merchants'. Luucheons than was that
presented by Mr. Jesse E. Miller, last
Saturday. Although a few of our citi-
! puntly attempted to pPOCUr
some municipal legislation which
would bate proclaimed to the world
that Cairo no longer cared to culti
vute. tha good will and business re
lationshlp . of her n ral . neighbors,
this was defeated and the" people or
Cairo are oti record as recognizing
the Importance of offertnu the people
of the country every facility to come
lore and do business with them. And
In line with this sentiment Is .Vr.
Miller's suggestion that the move
ment for road building In the county
be stimulated. In Mr. ililler's care
lolly , prepared statement, and com
ments made thereon, it was shown
that the'eounty board is powerless to
raise funds for road purposes under
too new Intel pretation of the state
la; that funds for road building rati
be raised only by a road district tax;
that Cairo as a part of Road res
trict Nt. 7 Is deriving about $"..0OV
anrually for use on Its streets; that
the remainder of the road tax in this
district has been wisely used that
the roads "In this ' district are in
fine condition: that the roads in Dis

kpt away from Cairo because of t'..e
laJ roads: that the money collected
for Road District No. 2 is InsrfTirleiit
to meet the needs of the situation
and that this, can be overcome by
rontolldatlng Districts 7 and 2 into
one, which, would permit the now
surplus fund of District No. 7 to
be used In extending its roads into
what la now District No. 2. Th re

that the senior deacon of his new

he was not entirely prepared for some I

peculiar thrift. "I don't know as 1

surprise. "I had understood so."
"That's uot the point," said the dea
