Bad Midways Prevent Regular
Attendance at School.
National Grange 1« Urged to Work
Tor Bettor Highways as a Help to
Youngsters and Greater Interest In
Church and Civic Improvement.
On«* of the ti<lvantages that good
roads are ton community that are oftcu
lost sight of Is the prevention of chil­
dren attending school regularly, thus
furthering the ambition qf every pur­
ent that his or her child shall be well
educated. anil another is the preven­
tion of social Intercourse, which la
only fully developed when the ••going”
is easy over well cared for highways.
In an article written for the national
grange by Logan Waller Page he says:
"The advantages of good roads ex­
tend to every citizen, whether he lives
in city or country, and to every enter-
prise, whether it be agricultural, man­
ufacturing or mining. Al) are more or
less dependent on the common high­
ways as au avenue of the commercial
transportation, and in priqiortion as
these highways are improved so as to
facilitate transportation are they bene­
fited thereby. These benefits have
been carefully computed and estimated
in dollars and cents, and so enormous
have they been thus demonstrated to
lie that they present a convincing ar­
gument to any thinking man of the
Importance and necessity for road im­
"But there are other elements of ad­
vantage which more urgently recom­
mend the Improvement of our roads,
advantages which deserve far more
serious consideration titan tiny tintin
clal advantages which we may gain
and which cannot be measured accord­
ing to any monetary standard, but
must be looked for In the elevation of
our citizenship and the moral and in­
tellectual advancement of our people.
"Most of our cities.and towns have
good streets and driveways, which fa­
cilitate business and recreation. The
people live close together, anti social
and friendly intercourse is easy. The
schools and churches are within easy
reach of all. So our urban population
has ample facilities for business, for
recreation, for social intercourse and
for attendance upon church and school.
"It is different. however, with the
two thirds of our people who are en­
gaged in agricultural pursuits and live
away from the centers of business and
population They have not the paved
streets and good roads of the cities
nud towns. They live apart from each
other and hnve no roads such as afford
easy and convenient means of trans­
acting business, of social intercourse
and regular attendance u | h > ii church
and school. To them will flow the
maximum of benefits from Improved
mails. Improved roads will bring them
in closer touch with the centers of
It will give them enlarged
ideas and assist them to adopt the
new methods which are so necessary
for them to keep pace with the march
of progress along other Hites, and as
they advance so will our civilization.
As they advance so will our entire
country and in equal ratio.
“Good roads would revolutionize our
country schools. Contrast the lot of
the country child on Ills way to school
in winter with flint of the city child
with only a few blocks of paved streets
to walk. Our country child, with
satchel over shoulders and lunch bas­
ket In hand, must leave the cheerful
fireside of home from half an hour to
nil hour before school opens in order
to Is« there on lime. The roads are wet
and muddy many months of the year
The country Is open and the cold
w inds are unmerciful In their attacks

reaches the schoolhouse, which is of

tlistriefs the opjrosito is true, if all
of tire roads were in good condition ho
as to remain higii and dry it would be
possible to successfully enforce such
a law even in the rural districts, but
with the present condition of most of
tile roads it is ir practicable. And the
states in their efforts to thus bestow a
blessing upon their children would lie
attemptiug au unkind benefaction for
which they would pay by a resultant
loss in the physique and mental vigor
of our future generations.
“Church attendance would also be
siimtilnted by road improvement.
When one has a nice smooth road to
travel over he doesn’t mind driving
tlp-ee or four miles to church. Small
congregations would thus lie augment­
ed. Tite people would become inter­
ested in and take a pride in their
churches. Larger and more comfort­
able churches would tie built, and lroth
ehildrr it and grown people would at­
tend church more regularly than they
do now with our bad roads and distant
and uncomfortable churches, for church­
going is not only beneficial from tite
religious atmosphere which pervades
churches, iritt there itralsoan attractive
social feature connected witli them
which is a benefit and a blessing to tite
“The schools and churches of a com­
munity are its greatest moral and edu­
cational forces. Next to them per­
haps stands rural mail delivery, which
brings tite |>eople of the rural districts
In daily touch with the cities and busi­
ness world. It places in their hands
tite dally papers, magazines and all of
the current literature of the country,
so that they may be as well informed
as to what is transpiring in tlic politi­
cal. literary and commercial world as
their brothers in the city. Tite Itenefi-
cial effects of tills service upon the
happiness and home comforts of our
rural population are immeasurable, and
nothing contributes to its etliclency
and regularity more titan improved

Necessity of Replacing Plank Culverts
With Proper Pipes.
To Show Their Work.
I .>ua»y Judge.
C uiriisu. j
Pennsylvania's state highway com­
missioner gives the following advice
on the question of road drainage:
"Where water must, be diverteil from
one side to the other of a road It
should be enrried beneath the surface
by means of pipes or culverts of ca­
pacity adequate to carry the maximum
amount of water which ever will de­
mand passage. I’lpes of suitable ma­
terial when properly laid cost little
or nothing to maintain beyond an oc­
casional cleaning out. Water breaks
riM|uire constant attention and are fre­
quently Inadequate to prevent the flood
water from overflowing down the sur­
face of the road. They are also seri­
ous obstacles to travel, increasing very
materially the steepness of the hills
where they are used and making nec­
essary the hauling of proportionately
smaller loads.
"in tlic majority of the townships in
which any attempt is made to carry
water across below instead of above
the road surface It is done by means
of plank culverts, usually constructed
in tile most primitive manner, while
the large water courses are spanned
by structures consisting It: part, if not
wholly, of wood. In some instances
stone lias been used in a very com­
mendable manner, but it is found that
many'of fire bridges, culverts and
drains which have been built of stone
have been laid up tn an inefficient
manner, which has Ini in n few years
to tlic necessity of exi»ensive repairs.
For the smaller culverts and drains in
Which smoothness of interior surface
Is desirable four kinds of pipe arc
available vitrified clay, cast iron, cor
ruga toil iron and concrete. The use of
wood for such purposes is to lie dis­
couraged. ami nil existing plank cul­
verts should tie replaced l>y some oth­
er material ns rapidly as practicable.
Vitrified clay irtpes are much cheap­
er than Iron, but unless very carefully
protected are very liable to breakage.
Except In rare cases this material is
not recommended by the department."
