It is a blind people which fixes
its eves on the railroad and con
siders it the sum of all transpor
tation. Only second to it are the
wasron roads, and intelligent
farming communities ought to
appreciate the tremendous yearly
loss to the whole community in
bad roads. Not only that smaller
loads must be hauled, more trips
made, more time taken on a trm,
and greater wear and tear and
breakage. Not only this, but
the community with good solid
roads the year round will outstrip
its rivals in settlement and in
creased values. The Romans,
for military purposes, built
through sparsely settled districts
which endure today, and
the ever-accompanying result
was the rapid settlement of those
districts. The railroad is not the
whole thing. ! Get together, my
