Withdrawal of Rural Frse Delivery
Service Where Highways Are Bad.
Kive rural frit- delivery routes in
Michigan have Ikhmi discontinued, aud
It Is announced that the government
will look more carefully to the enforce
ment of its rule regarding the roads
over which rural free delivery is es
tablished, says the Motor News. The
present requirement Is: "Honds trav
ersed shall be kept iu good condition
and unobstructed by gates. There must
be no unbridged creeks or Btreaina not
fordable at auy season of the year."
In many cases the residents along
troposed routes have made Improve
ments that enable tbem to obtuln rural
delivery service, but sometimes the
efforts to keep up the roads are re
laxed. But the government has de
cided that unless the roada traversed
by the carriers are properly maintained
the service will lie withdrawn.
The poHtoIlice department now calls
on the carriers for reports on the roads
and will atop the service where the
highways In questlou are bad. The
SP.973 rural delivery carriers now em
ployed cover 8153,3(13 miles dally, and
It Is unreasonable to expect them to
contend with neglected roads or to
work for communities lacking the en
terprise to keep their common high
ways In deceut shape.
If a route Is discontinued the lnhah
ltnnts themselves will be to blame, for
If alive to their own Interests and
their duty to the public they would
give their roads vigorous and constant
attention. The Idea that a route once
authorized Is nocessurlly permanent Is
a mistake. Advice on the liest rood
methods Is supplied by the agricultural
departments, and a nelghliorhood that
loses Its rural delivery must Itself bear
the discredit for so unpleasant and hu
miliating an event.

Illinois Farmers For Better Roadwiy.
A movement is on foot among the
farmers of southern Illinois to thi
year begin tlie building of hard rocit
roads, something after the style 0
highway adamautlzing used In parts
of Kentucky aud Tennessee, says a
special dispatch from Cnrml, IU., to
the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Under
a state provision made feasible by the
hard roads commission the penal Insti
tutions of the state are required to
furnish rock to all township comml.
sloners who Apply. By having the con
victs crush the rock, which abounds
In many parts of the state, the hard
roads commission hopes to facilitate
and hasten the Improvement of the
highways of the state, particularly Id
Town Beauty Soheme.
The first move in the plan to make
Y'ork, I'a.. the "city beautiful" was
made recently when under tlie auspiees
of the York assembly of the Dauphin
Institute, assisted by public spirited
citbens. Processor Zuebliu of Chicago
i;;:i rerslt.v delivered his lecture oa
"Vhe Twentieth Century City, or the
City York Ought to lie," says the
Municipal Journal aud Engineer. Pro
fessor Zuebliu would have the city by
Its regularly constituted bodies or
through its public spirited citizens lay
out a definite plan of action, a plan
that would provide for parks, sewers,
the elimination of poles, the beautify
ing of the lawns, the prevention of cor
porations from doing as they please in
tearing up streets, street car conges
tion In the public square aud a hundred
and one everyday common sense rem
edies Unit most citizens have loug been
aware of, yet fall to get at the founda
tion of, for luck of a general plan of
action. Trofessor Zueblln would havs
the city fathers, ollicial or real, decide
on what they want In the years to
come nnd then "go after It," so that the
future generations may take up the
work that has been started and carry
It to completion.
