tnbuted an article on the "road
question .' ' We reproduce the ar
ticle as follows :
The subject of good roads has
become the par mount , issue and
is' being agitated throughout the
farming districts.. The rural peo
ple are beginning to realize- the
tact that it pays to have its high
ways properly built and main
tained. In considering this sub
ject we, sometimes hear the ques
tion, Do good roads pay ? Let us
ask, Do bad roads pay ? Does it
pay the farmer ' who has kept at
home a large amount of his oats,
wheat, potatoes, and when the
market quotations are high to lose
sale of his products simply be
cause the roads are in such a con
dition that it is impossible for him
to 'get his product to market?
Does it pay for the extra wear
and tear cn team, harness and
vehicle? Does it pay for the ex
tra time arid trouble taken in
freighting products over poor
roads? These are facts to be con
sidered. In many communities
farm property is depreciating in
value on account of the road be
ing almost impassible for several
months of 'the year. That these
conditions do exist none will deny ;
but how to better them is the
question of the hour.
We have many men of many
minds and it is as noticeable in
road work as many other . things.
One has only to compare the work
of different road districts , to sub
stantiate this fact. Those who
have to furnish the money do not
object to contributing their. hard
earned money to build permanent
roads; but what they do object to
is to be heavily taxed for road
purposes and then see their mon
ey spent for work that in many
cases is worse than thrown away.
Many questions arise in consid
ering a system or road improve
ment but the most important one
is: How shall the funds be raised
for conducting the work?.
Very few farmers feel able to
carry the whole burden of per
manent road ' building and how
shall the emergency be met? The
press has done much towards
bringing the ' subject before the
public, while other agencies have
been at work until the movement
is beginning to find expression in
legislation by the states and we
find many of them making an-
Supt. Denman has issued a cir
cular letter to. the various teachers
of Benton county notifiying them
that there no annual coun
ty institute in our county this
year.. Benton has united with
other counties of , the valley for
the purpose of holding an educa
tional congress at the Lewis and
Clark Fair. The exact date of
this congress will be given out
later. . .
. Those in charge have arranged
to have some of the leading edu
cational men of the county pres
ent' on this occasion. Neither
time nor money is to be spared in
making Jhis meeting, a success in
every way. According to law
teachers in counties where'the an
nual county institute, has been
dispensed with are not compelled to
atteud'the congress. At the same
time the district will not receive
the $5 premium.'-
In all probability no better' op
portunity will ever be given our
teachers to get in touch with the
leading educational lights of our
land, and it is hoped that7 for the
glory of old Benton a large num
ber of .our teachers will arrange
to attend this congress, go to
Portland in a special car, and re
main a week. . '

would cure it. Z. T. Gray, of Calhoun,

Notice to Creditors..
We can never have good roads
until we have a uniform system
of road building. A most excel
lent system has been adopted bv
one state, which places the road
improvement under tne supervis
ion of the state engineer and sur
veyor. . When better roads are
desired a petition-is presented to
the board of supervisors by the:
property" owners along whose
premises .the highway passes.
The supervisor in turn' petitions
the state engineer ;who after
satisfactory investigation ; draws
from the fund : appropriated by
the state for the work. Half the
expense is borne by,the state, 55
per cent by the county and 15 per
cent by the property owners along
whose premises the road shall
pass. . v ;; ;
Aside from tne convenience
and comfort to ' be derived from
good roads, there is also the fac
tor of economy. 1 .
Permanent road building is i
common enterprise and is so far
reaching, that we can hardly esti
mate its merits. It is a well
known fact that the value of fiijn
land is greatly enhanced where
the roads are well cared 'for. The
