Fine Country Roads.
In driving along the country roads
one sees many water-tanks with wind

set get as much dust as you would In
one hour on some Oregon country
road. This has been the dryest

there Is not dust enough to make It
necessary to brush a black hat after
riding all day. You can tell how
smooth tho roads are when I tell you
that several of my letters wero written
on my knees as we rode nlong over
the oountry highways.
The best oil roads are graded

Many varieties, like beans, beets, cab
