The Elizabethan era gave vogue to
the button and buttonhole, two inven
tions which may fairly be regarded as
im portant, since they did much to rev
olutionize dress The original button
was wholly a product of needlework,
which w as soon improved by the use
of a wooden mold. The brass button
Is said to have been introduced by a
Birmingham m erchant in 1G80. It took
200 years to improve on the method
of sewing the cloth upon the covered
button. Then an ingenious Dane hit
upon the idea of m aking the button in
two parts and clamping them together
with the cloth between.

the advantages of a community, with
its educational, social and religious ties.
There are only two ways of raising
money for such work—direct taxation
and the sale of bonds. A small am ount
of public road work is done annually
by private subscription, but it is too
insignificant to be considered in the
The annual sum that can be raised
In any limited district by direct taxa
tion is too small, as a rule, for the
m aintenance of existing roads ajid any
extensive perm anent reconstruction.
On the other hand, the annual road
taxes of a whole state yield a very
large sum, which ought to furnish far
better results than it does. The trou
ble witli the work doue with those
taxes is th at it is not carried out with
the knowledge, energy and economy
necessary to achieve the largest meas
ure of success. A recent report by the
state highway commission of Arkansas
explains the trouble in th at state,
which is also the trouble In most
states, as follows:
“Under our present lack of system
the enormous sum of $ 1 , 200,000 per
year Is being spent from the general
3 mill tax alone, with no great im
provem ent over conditions of the past.
Our present lnw provides th at each
county be divided Into numbers of
road districts and that the tuxes col
lected In any district be spent only in
that district. Pulaski county is divid
ed into twenty-six road districts, sev
eral of which do not have more than
$200 per year. These small districts
are each In charge of a road overseer.
I venture tlie assertion th at 5 per cent
of our road overseers have never spent
an hour in reading up on road m atters.
I do not blam e the road overseers; it
is the system which is to blame. Their
term of office Is indeterm inate in some
cases, their pay is small and, lastly,
their labor, known ns free labor (fur
nished in place of a money tax), is
very unsatisfactory in most cases be
cause of the ever changing organiza
tion. By the time a man gets in shape
to do som ething his time is up.”
It is really no wonder th at a farm er
who knows no other system of road
construction than th at outlined hi tills
quotation or an equivalent is not in
clined toward real road improvement,
lie knows that his taxes, or ills labor
given in place of taxes, yield an insig
nificant return. lie does not know
that the same money and labor spent
at the right time and in the right way
would accomplish far more. One of
the great problems In paying for roads
is how to stop the w aste of large sums
through ignorance. A great Improve
ment can be made by placing the work
under overseers who are intelligent,
energetic and faithful and then placing
those overseers under competent tech
nically trained men who cannot only
guide the overseers, but also have suffi
cient personal Influence to educate the
people to nil appreciation of how much
can be accomplished If the available
means are used properly Finally, the
whole work should be guided by a
suite hhrhwav commission.
