Whole No, SM). 29 PROPOSED ROAOJS k WINNER Many Inquiries and Much Dis cussion of Proposed last At Huron on Tuesday of last week a rousing meeting was held and $1,000 raised withm a few minutes to be expended on the Beadle county section. The five members of the board of commissioners of Pennington county met at Wast a Friday, wit! State Engineer Lea, and select ed the site for the bridge across the Cheyenne river. The bridge will be built early in the spring, and so remove one of the great obstacles to the touring of the state from east to west. Pen nington county has already forme an organization to take cares of their section of the road. A blue print showing the Min nesota and South Dakota links of the highway is exhibited in the window of the Security Bank Secretary Herrick, of the state association, Maid in an interview a few days ago: "Years ago the eeiiag e# t!ie railroad was the signal for a great boom for a town. The won der work of the locomotive con tinues to bring larger develop ment more intense commercial life to each community it reaches The problem of transportation both of passengers and freight grows increasingly complex with the development of community life. The automobile has come in to the situation as a factor in traffic whose importance the hu man mind cannot grasp at the present time. There is a fancied objection in certain quarters on the part of the farmers to automc biles. They say that automobile roads should follow good roads for the transportation of the farm ere crop to the farmer's market. There is reason in such a claim as this, of course. The broader view however is that whatever brings into existence a road good enougl to be sought for by the automo bilist produces such a road as is satisfactory to the most exacting demands of agriculture. All these things interlock and work together. "The automobilist introduces new life into a community, creat es a line of business which is now apart from every other line in tht community. Automobile acces sories are a business of them selves and when we come to a further question of the manu facture of these devices and a' pliances which makes roada bet ter and keeps them good, we touch upon an industry that ie sure to follow the construction and maintenance of fine roada.

Everywhere the people are awake to the tremendous im portance of the movement. The president and secretary of the organization formed at Deadwood the fore part of the month have received leters from every part of the United States, from Bos ton to San Francisco, and as far south as Mobile, asking for road maps and for routes and inquiring about various features of the South Dakota link in this great highway. Inquiries are already so voluminous that a large quan tity of printed matter, covering the subject in detail, will be is sued within a short while. its duty and the officers at present ia akargs of the affair make it their privilege to extend good roads in every direction like the spokes of a wheel where there is a main central highway and to that end, upon request, will fur nish speakers for public meetings desired to arrange for good roads in a community at present not alive to their possibilities.

SAVED BY TELEPHONE But For the Aid of a Farmer, Milwaukee Might Have Had a Bad Wreck Aberdeen, Feb. 21.—The tele phone facilities of South Dakota tarmers averted what might have been a disastrous wreck on the Milwaukee railroad between Web iter and Waubay.

But she slipped and fell and the wheels of the engine caught the projecting portion of the sole of one of her shoes and cut it off as neatly as could have been done with a knife. Beyond hav ing her toes pinched when the leather was contracted by the cutting off of the front portion of the sole she escaped without injury. COMISSION IDEA EXTENDED Pierre,Feb. 21.—County govern ment by commission is evidently one of the propositions which will come before the next legislature session. The proposition has worked so well in cities where it is being tried out, that it is be ing considered as a good plan to follow for county as well as city government. The agitation has reached the point where local or ganizations are being formed in some of the counties of the state for the purpose of securing legis lation in that direction, *"d they promise to make a start for suck legislation at the next session, and get as far as they can with it.
