A FARMER WRITES
OF GOOD ROADS
Intimates of Agreement The!
Grants Pass Do tha Talking
and County the Work.
Editor Courier We have read many
articles of late in the papers, on the
Rood roada qnestion. Siime of them
hare been very interesting and con
tained many plaosibl'. theories and
good suggestions. This is a subject
in which all thoold be equally inter
ested. Cioo I coDuty.rot.di are as much
of a benefit to the merchant or busi
ness man as to the farther. I snppose
a certain aniouut of agitation is
necessary ou all poblic questions be
fore much action will be taken. Bnt
in this case, like many others, it
seems that there has be n more talk
than action, although there has been
some splendid improvements made of
late on onr putlio roads in this
county. While I do not condemn the
new road law, I do not see as it has
mach advantage for the majority of
farmers, over the old system, in which
each road district had its own super
visor and each one worked ont his
road tax instead of paying the mouey.
It seems that most all the money is
expended on the main thorooghfares
while some of the ontlying districts
are sadly neglected. I have been in
formed that the people of Grants Pass
do not pay any county road tax. If
thisbe true there is certainly a screw
loose somewhere, onless there is a
mutual agTfement to thai effect, that
the town people are to do the talking,
aud the farmerB aie to pay the taxes
to make the reads. We farmers are
certainly willing to pay oar share of
the taxes it the money is justly
and wisely expended and the burden
falls equally on all classes. Some
writer has goue so far as to attribute
all the sins that were ever oommitted
from Adm down to the present time
to the one cause of had roads. While
we think the picture is a little over
drawn, we do believe that good roads
are a very important factor in the
prosperity of a eouutry. As to the
ways and means, they have been
pretty thoroughly discussed in the
columns of the Courier. So we
think farther suggestions on that line
would te unnecessary. We think our
road supervisors are competent men,
aud are discharging their duty the
best they can with tin means at hand.

7? ViM by Dnieif and Dr. Mom
We are glad that at the recent con
vention at Los Angeles, Mrs. L. M.
N. Stevens, (Our Lillian) was again
re-elected prosideut of the National
W. C. T. and MiBS Anna Gordon,
vice-president. Mrs. Htevens, noble
and self-sacrificing, was the oue se
lected hy Miss Willard as her success
or and Mils Gordon was an almost
constant coniibuiou for uoarly 20
After Mrs. Htevens' election she
Btcpped forward with the gifts of
love about her, and flowers in her
hands, and raid in tunes thrilling
with emotion, quoting from the union
Signal of Nov. 28: "I cannot ade
quately express my thanks to yon for
this expression of your confidence in
me as President of the National W.
C T. U. I re consecrate myself to
the blessed service, not as your
leader, but rather as yum servant.
I am thinking just now of the d'ar
old home ou the other side of the
continent that home from which I
have gone frtely out and iu for the
laht 30 years, for my husband's heart
is like my own iu rilatiou to the W.
C. T. V. Inasmuch as iu me lies,
aud as high as my prayers may reach,
I pledge myself to carry out your
plans and wishes, to be what you de
sire n:e to be, to go wherever I may
be called to go in the interest of the
organization. I will endeavor ill all
things to deal justly, and as side hy
side we go forward, may we strive
above all things else to walk humbly
with God. "
Mrs Frances W. Graham of New
York, National musical director, sang
sweetly aud clearly the verse written
ou the occasion of Mm. Htevens elect
iou last year:
Hhe hath led through days of darkuewi,
She hath led through days of light;
Hhe hath led iu love and ialience,
.She hath led in strength and might
Aud we'll follow where she leads us
In our great, tnumphtnt light,
As we go marching on.
The congregation rose iu a body and
sang the chorus, "Glory, Glory,
Hallelujah," keeping time to Mrs.
Graham's white rihlion d'eked baton
with silken flags aud handkerchiefs.
The cne was an inspiring oue, aud
it gave to the visitors present a great
appreciation of the inviucibility of
the Woman's Chrisiian Temperance
Uuion. whose members are bouud
together by such strong ties of love
and consecration iu a common cause.
Mrs. Htevens nominated Miss Anua
Gordou of Illluois vice-prenideut at
large. Miss Gordou has been wjrk
ing in the W. U. T. U. fur nearly 30
years and unselfishly devotes the time
and all that she has and is to Its in
terests. Her nomination was re
ceived with great enthusiasm, the
delegates rising spontaneously uud
waving flags and banners in all parts
of the house. The nomination was
ratified by a rising vote ami Miss
Gordon unanimously elected.
Most of the other officers were re
elected aud one of the plcassntcst con
ventions ever held passed Into his
tory. There Is more Catarrh In this fen
tino of the country than all other di
seases put together, aud until lie last
few years was supposed to be incur
able. For a great many years doctors
pronounced it a local disease and I re
scrilied local remedies, and by con
stantly failing to cure with local
treatment, pronounced it Incurable.
Kcience has proven catarrh to be a
conslitiil ional disease and therefore
requires constitutional treatment.
Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured hy
F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledci, O., is
the ouly constitutional cure on the
market. It is taken Internally in
doses from 10 drops to a teasiaionfull.
It acts directly on the blood and

Editoi Courier Please allow me a
few words In regard to dancing. It is
one of the most healthful amusements
there is for tho young people. Even
the church members in many places
have their dances. Our noble pri si
deuta are usherid in o office with the
inaugural hall. Then vhy should
anyone complain about dancing ami
It has come under our observation
many times that those who ecun lain
in jit about dancing are the unea v ho
were not present, and were ready to
believe the hearsays. We believe,
aud it has been often proved, that
keepL.g young ieipl too much under
restriction, has caused as many heart
aches as the ballroom. We find too,
that the tame H-ople who go to dances
attend the play pur lies, spelling
school and church. We cnu't see why
they are not under the same iu
fluent el. We believe in letting young
people have their freedom to a cer
tain extent, if they enjoy the leas
ures of the ballroom allow them to
go, go with them and help them to
have a pleasant tune. They will
bliss you, aud if tney have the good
spirit iu them they will never be led
astray. The u riptiiirrt says there is a
time to dance and we believe the
acred writers knew what they were
talking about. M. M.

about Its being the best. No other

is so sure a preventive of pneumonia.
No other is so pleasant and safe to
