While the people are very
properly giving much thought
to what it is costing them to
use the great railroad lines in
the country, it will be wise on
their part to give some serious
consideration to what it is coat
ing to use the common roads
that lead from their farms to the
railroad stations. It would be
a good idea for every farmer to
consult his actual outlays and
find' out definitely what it U
costing him to move a ton of
freight from his farm to the
railroad station where the , pro
ducts of his farm 'begin their
journey to market.
The Hon. WD Vandiver of
Ohio in a speech ,in Congress
published in' the . Congressional
Record of March 8, 1905, advo
cating national aid in building
common roads said: "It costs
the American farmer an average
of twenty five cents per mile to
transport a ton of produce from
the field to the railroad . station.
It only costs eight cents in
Europe. The difference is in
the character of the roads."
. A little figuring may demon
strate that bad roads are costing
you a much larger sum yearly
than yon suspect t . ... ,
A fool and his money is soon
parted. This applies to news
papers as welt as other lines
Just as soon as the officers
can get their suits made we will
have a uniformed police. We
are getting there.
Senator Mitchell had better
not; break with the newspapers
of the state just yet. He may
need their support before he
straightens but his matters with
the government and his constituents.
Oouncilmen Qardineir is of
the opinion that "by the placing
of two or three hose carts in
different portions of the city
with bells it mav cive a better
seryice and might possibly be
less expensive than a fire alarm
system, v He will doubtless "ore-
sent it for consideration "at the
next council meeting, which will
be next Monday: r .
The school board is doing the
proper thing in preparing for a
neat lawn in front or tbe High
school building. There is an
abundance of room and aside
from the general appearance in
a public way, the "beautiful" is
no small part in a complete education.
Keep your eye on the Com
mercial Club. Belter still join
it. - Tlure . are (or were two
weeks ago) over sixty of the bus
iness men of this eity who were
not members. Let us all get in
the harness and , pull. This is
the year to accomplish much
and this organization is the me
dium to work through.
This city has a' complete and
up-to-date plan of house num
bers and the . ordinance provid
ing a penalty for net complying
with the provisions is in effect
and should be enforced: There
is less than nne half of the city
pntrumbered and Until the city is
numbered there will be no at
tempt towards establishing the
free delivery system which
are entitled to. '
