If they should turn into Main street

ness houses are on Main street and
it Is the street to beautify and Im
prove
It Is all conjecture as to what may
happen in the future The sensible
thing to do is to build the road
through the street which will do the
most good at present
Another reason why it Is best to
keep in thebuslness section of the
town Is that the people are more like
ly to connect with thecement road by
laying cement op each side of tho
road up to the sidowalks Sidewalks
are not yet laid the length of the
blockB on any other street
Peope travelling for miles through
a hot and arid region llke to have
monotony broken now and then by
passing through modern and up-to-date
towns Why pretend you are
going to a town or city and about tho
time you reach the outskirts duck
and pass around i It
What would you think If you were
travelling through Florida and should
see advertisements announcing some
modorn up-to-date town ahead with
Its streets lined with palms and otheT
tropical foliage and when you reached
tho place they would dodge around
and carry you through some back
street where you would see nothing
but back yards and bams
It Is no argument to say tho road
should be on some street because it
would suit particular Individuals or
certain Interests We should be
democratic and consider the greatest
good for the greatest number Ask
yourself If when you visit a tovffa or
city It you do not spend the greater
portion of your time upon tho best
streets and boulevards You know
that you do not hunt out nor go to
streets that are not frequented by the
public
