THE "WOES OF THE COUNTRY'
An Atchison county farmer,
says a writer in the Atchison
Daily Globe, was "dragging his
mile of road," and at the corner
met a neighbor, who had a bad
piece of road in front of his
farm. "Bad roads are the least
of my troubles," said the second
man, "and" he continued, "did
you ever stop to think that this
is a .one-man country?" The
listener replied that he had been
busy dragging roads lately, and
had not noticed it.
"Well," continued he who
was not worried about bad roads,
"it is a fact that we are little
better off than Russia. lean
get along for the rest of my life,
but I am alarmed for my chil
dren. This one-man country
and the trusts are sapping at
our very vitals."
"It looks like rain," said the
farmer on the road drag, "and
I want to get this ' road finished
but I'll take time to give you a
few of my ideas of things.
"In the first place, good roads
are of more importance to me
than this one-man-country talk
you are putting up. I should
think a lot more of you if you
would get out your drag and fix
up that road along your place.
I believe that bad road is half
responsible for your sour disposi
tion. , I know when I ride over
my good road I fell all right, but
the minute I strike that rotten
piece of road of yours I begin to j
feel just as you talk.
"I have been an American and
a Kansan for fifty years, and I
know there is nothing wrong
with the country. There may
be a few bad spots in it, just as
there are bad spots in your farm,
and in your own disposition, but
those few bad spots are not the
Whole country, by a long shot.
"You say you are alarmed for
the future. ' I should be, too, if
I . talked and thought the way
; "If you will read your Bible
of tener and subscribe for a few
of the best papers, you will see
"If you drag that road of
yours, all of your neighbors will
think a lot more of you, and even
your own sons will take a more
wholesome interest in farm life.
But as it is a mile to the other
- end of the road and I have two
more rounds to make, I must be
getting along before that rain
catches me." t v
Farmer number one moved off.
He looked and saw his neighbor
Still standing, looking intently
at the ground. There was no
indication that his talk had any
effect. s It takes-work to drag a
road, while it is not much trouble
to read a rabid, foolish news-,
paper, and think about the i
"woes of the country." ,'

with a tendency to high winds and consequent squalls
