V. G. Cozad, limberger expert,

and economical solution of a here
tofore complex and confusing pro
blem. After a ropast on the
oderiforous yet pleasant and
palatable limberger, tho patient
is advised to mix a tablespoon of
said, tablo or stock, inn cut glass
goblet of ice wnter. There being
many a slip between tho cup and
tho lip, the goblet must bo raised
to tho faco with great dexterity
and celerity and tho salted H-2-0

dashing billows of tho storm

High Value of Good Road
No one questions the state
ment that good roads have a
high monoy value to the farmers
of the nntlon. nnd it may be said
that this alone is sufficient to
justify the cost of their cbnsruc
tion as rapidly as practiblc under
an efficient, economicol equitable
system of highway improvement.
Tho big point in favor of this
expenditure is the economy of
time nnd force in transporation
between farm and market, en
abling the growers to Uikc ad
vantage of fluctuations in buying
nnd Belling as well as enhancing
tho value of real estate. It is
estimated that the average an
nual loss from poor roads is 76
cents an acre, while tho estimat
ed average increase resulting
from improving all the public
roads is $9.
