They see the nation headed for the j bow-wows on a wave of extravagant public expenditures, not realizing that for many of our superior advantages we pay far less—pairtly because there lire more of us—than our ancestors paid for ways that were far from be ing as pleasant or contributing as J ruch to tiie happiness and fullness of ife. take our public roads, for example, in the first years after the colonies ,became a republic, funds were so Vieager and the peopfle so ixior that tile commonwealth could, not assume i the burden of road building. Instead private companies were formed to liulld and maintain tnrnpCkes for V/lilcli service they were authorized fo charge a toll for the use of the foad, says the Maine Motorist. On June 14, 179(1, the first turnpike company In New Hampshire was or ganized. A schedule of tolls running Jrom one cent per indie for every ten cheep or hogs up to three cents per Jnile for wagons, stages, private car riages and like conveyances drawn by liorses was legally permitted the com pany. These old roads were very poor. 3 Cuts were left unsmoothed, bridges tagged and fell In; vehicles were >aired in the mud holes. Vet the toll Companies elaijued their, returns were so small they could not afford repairs. Imagine a present-day motorist traveling over one of these roads and being stopped every two or three miles by a gate which he could not pass without paying a toll. Compare this with the cost of trav eling on a modern, paved highway. I.t will surprise many to learn that our modern highway is the cheaper of the two—far cheaper. A hard surfaced pavement today costs about $27,000 per mile. Grading, draining, fencing, etc., bring the cost of the whole improved road lo about $35,000 per mile, the actual cost de pending upon the locality where it Is built and the amount of grading re-* tfulred. At 0 per cent the yearly in terest on this total cost is $2,100. The sum which must he put aside each year to replace the pavement at the end of 20 years is $900. .Main ace may be estimated at $200 a ye... file total yearly cost of a mile of modern pavement is then $3,207. If an average of only 500 vehicles per day passes over the mile of im proved pavement the cost then is only 1.7.'i cents per vehicle per mile. This is hut little more tlntn half what our ancestors used to pay to travel the mud and dust and ruts of the “good old days.” Great Road Planned in Cuba for Automobiles Provision for construction of a cen tral highway system to extend the length of the island of Cuba is looked upon us the beginning of an automo bile boom' there. The new highway is to be 500 miles long, running from I’inaro del Itlo at the western end of the island, through Havana to Santiago, at the other end. It will form a veritable backbone from which will radiate branch roads to other important centers. The cost of the project is estimated at more Ilian $380.000,00<X if fg ex pected that the work will he coni ploted in four years. The hotter highway system, dealers believe, will bring an increase of at least 2.10.000 motor car owners and raise the motoring ratio to an auto mobile for every 10 persons. Transportation and gasoline taxes are to he imposed to defray part of the expenses of construction and fu ture maintenance of the highways. Other taxes will bring up the revenue for this purpose to about $10,000,000 a year, and it is expected the cost of the on1 ire project will be covered in this way in 12 years. >0000000OOOOOOOOOO Kansas will have 8,0-10 miles of paved highways in 1040, according to Walter Van Buck, state highway engi neer. Center-Road Hog Menace to Traffic on Highways One uf tlie greatest menaces to traffic on the streets, the boulevards and even on the country highways Is the slow driver cruising down the center of the thoroughfare. That this is the case is attested by hundreds of letters to the American Automobile association. “The rules of the road" require all slow-movingtraffie—whether passenger automobile, truck or bus—to keep to tlie right near the curb. Tills rule is violated every day, and all the time. Everywhere may be found the slow traveler, creeping down the middle of Hie driveway, blocking traffic and actually endangering the lives of others. “Can't you do anything about the man who lias the ‘middle of the road complex?’ ” is the complaint of so many letters reaching us that it looks as if tlie road hog will never learn.

The best workmen can1, not build a good-looking home With a poorly manufactured product. For that reason it is only good business when building a home to rely upon some known lumber that Is man ufactured by a reliable firm. And the best security is in a trade-marked brand of lumber, for here the manu facturer must .depend upon hls lumber; to make his easily Ulstingulshabie product acceptable -to the bulldiijg world. V* There are many frame homes stand- - ing today that were built when the United States was confined to the east coast. This, coupled with the fuct that lumber now is prepared much more scientifically and more carefully than when those houses were built” Indicates the homes built soundly to day will last as long as those of the' past. When Floors Shrink It frequently happens that floor boards shrink badly, particularly on pine floors, showing wide and un sightly cracks which should be filled In before refinishing. Of course, they are always filled with dirt which must be carefully removed and the cracks dusted out.

American Colleges of Today Training Youth \<j Become Submissive Slaves By DR. DONALD J. COWLING, President Carleton College. If our forefathers had been trained in the colleges of today tl.e)j would have remained submissive subjects to the king of England instead’ of becoming freemen. This dodging of the liberalizing cultural subjects; this pursuit 6t the so-called practical studies by the majority of students, is taking all the spunk out of the younger generation. Our forefathers were able to fight for ideals of liberty in the Revolution only :becau& the colleges of the day were liberal enough to foster such ideals. In the colleges of today the students are taught to be submissive slaves to those who tyrannize over our personal freedom. When- the young people study only practical subjects they 'forget' that thgre'aje standards of personal liberty that must be maintained. o • THE ^ DICKENSON CO.
