We are taxed twice as much by our idleness, three times as much by our pride, and four times as much by our folly. sss $. Don’t spend them all.

We are being treated to a demon stration of what happens when the arteries of commeree become dis eased, congested and run down. The lack of adequate transportation facili ties on the railroads of this country mounts into the millions of dollars in the delays that are occasioned. Our railway system, like our agricultural methods, have grown up so gradually, keeping abreast, even ahead of the de mands of commerce, we have come to look upon them as a matter of course. But the even balance between trans portation facilities and demands of commerce Is easily upset, as the ex perience of the past few months has demonstrated. Our railroad system needs rehabili tation. But along with the improve •• ■ < ■■ •; H errTjll rtivdi * jy* Better Roads Would Permit Increase In Tonnage by Motor Vehicles. ments of the railroads there is great need for a material improvement throughout the land. Over the coun try roads move the raw materials that go to make up a vast proportion of the tonnage carried by the railroads. The present freight congestion has emphasized the importance of the country road. It has proved the value of hard surface roads as passageways for freight carried in motortrucks and automobiles. Much relief for the railroads has come through the Immense tonnage that has moved this summer on motor trucks. A greater tonnage would un doubtedly have moved in the same manner if our highway system had been fit. The time has come when the mileage of concrete, brick or other hard-surfaced roads must extend in an ever-increasing network until the re motest parts of the country can have the advantage of quick transportation every day of the year in a motor ve hicle. —Arrierican Fruit Grower. ROCK FOR HIGHWAY BUILDING First Systematic Efforts to Determine Value Were Made in French Laboratory in 1878. The first systematic attempts to de termine the value of rock for road building purposes by means of labor atory tests were made in France, where In 1878 a road materials lab oratory was founded in the French School of Bridges and Roads. Here the Deval abrasion test was adopted, and this test with slight modifica tion has been accepted as standard throughout the United States. The test is named from its inventor. It was first used in connection'with con tract work in the city of Paris. Many valuable data were collected in this laboratory on the hardness and tough ness of rock, and tests for these prop erties were developed which were, in principle, the same as those in use today. ARGUMENT FOR GOOD ROADS Judgment Rendered Against County Because Culvert Was Obscured . by Weed Patch. An argument for good roads that carries with It a sharp punch in the way of a substantial judgment for damages is disclosed in a recent de cision of the supreme court of Wis consin. In this case it appears that when a machine went out of the traf fic path of an old-fashioned country road for the purpose of letting a tractor pass it struck the cement curbing at the end of a culvert which crossed the road at this point. Be ing covered with weeds the obstruc tion was not seen until the accident occurred. The county was held liable In damages for the accident. USING CONCRETE FOR ROADS Building Going on at Rate of Mile a Week With Equipment of Mich igan Contractor. With the ever-increasing interest in the necessity of building good roads there comes the effort to build them good and fast. With the special equip ment that a Michigan contractor is using concrete roads are constructed at the rate of a mile a week. r 1 "" " ■' —— ” - ——' Farm Live Stock AID BOYS TO OWN PUREBREDS Eighty Hampshire Gilts Distributed Among Club Members of Tipton County, Tennessee. “A pig in a poke,” generally signi fies a bad bargain, but not to the mem bers of the boys’ club of Tipton coun ty, Tennessee. These*young busines men are quite satisfied with the pigs they drew by lot one cjay last June at Covington, Tenn. Through the initia tive of County Agent G. S. Hollings worth. who has been untiring in his efforts is perfect the pig-club work, and with the assistance of the Ameri can Hampshire Breeders’ association, each of the eight banks in Tipton county imported ten purebred Hamp shire gilts from Illinois. Then the boy members of the pig club gathered in Covington to draw lots for their pigs. The process is simple, but its effect upon impressionable boys is whole some and far-reaching. The boy actu ally establishes a regular credit at hid bank, a real business proposition wherein pigs replace the customary notes. In this case each member of the club was given a number which entitled him to the pig with the cor responding number among the 80 in (he pen. Reports indicate that every boy seemed absolutely sure that ho bad drawn the one best Hampshire In the lot, though a neutral person who examined the 80 pigs asserted that there was really very little difference among all the animals. All weighed about 50 pounds, and all were pure bred Hampshire gilts, beautifully narked In biack and white and of ex cellent build and conformation. Each boy agreed to follow certain approved instructions in feeding and taring for the gilt and promised to exhibit his selection at a contest to be given in the county next fall.

The sow, the remaining pigs of her first litter and all the pigs of future litters be come the property of the boy. Economists argue that there is no good bargain—that one party or the other is always the loser—but it Is hard to find that fault in the pig club boys’ bargain. The banks get two pigs for one; the boys get a purebred sow and all her potential .litters in return for the care and food given the pig, and the county of Tipton is richer in one short year by two or three hun dred purebred pigs. Uncle Sam arid the county agent, who jointly form a sort of third party to the transaction, have the satisfaction of knowing that 80 farm boys have been given a financial interest in agriculture and a primary business education which will mean success in later years. HOW TO KEEP HOGS HEALTHY Among Other Things, Provide Animals With Sanitary Quarters and a Clean Wallow. To keep swine healthy and thrifty, provide them with sanitary quarters and, a clean wallow, in addition to proper food. But when external para sites affect hogs an effective remedy must be used if losses are to be avoid ed. Lite and mange mites are the two principal kinds of external para sites occurring sizing swine. The mites are particularly injurious in pigs and poorly nourished hogs. “Hog Lice and Hog Mange” is the title of a new farmers’ bulletin recently issued by the United States Department of Agriculture, telling specifically how to identify the parasites and describing effective and economical remedies. Flans of hog wallows .and dipping vats, together with directions for building them, are given. For informa tion on this important subject, ask the Department of Agriculture, Washing ton, D. C., for Farmers’ Bulletin No. 1085. SKUNK HIDES ARE VALUABLE Circular Gives Suggestions for Making This Supposed Pest Into Profit able Friend. Skunks yielded $1,000,000 worth of hides to New York state farmers and trappers in one year. The United States Department of Agriculture, in a new circular on the fur industry, gives suggestions for making this supposed pest into a profitable friend of the farmer. Grain With Blue Grass. Pteity of grain fed to pigs on blue grass pasture will bring more dollars und require less labor in the end.
