portation, and all (ho numerous advantages (hat follow
in the wake of public improvement. The farmer ought
to jump at the chance to secure paved roads under such
Much is hoard about the increased cost of taxation,
caused by the bond issue. Lot us analyze this cost. Tho
annual interest on $."00.000 at o per cent is $2.3,000. Add
(o this $10,000 a year as sinking fund for the next ten
years, when one-fifth of the principal falls due. This
inakos a total of $ftf,000 to be raised by taxation, or less
than a one mill tax on (he present valuation of .f.'W.OOO.OOO.
Therefore, for each $1000 assessed to a property owner he
pays only $1 per annum.
Tho annual road levy during the past four years has
been from 'J to 4 mills, of which over 12 mills has gone for
iinprovmonts upon tho same highway that will be taken
care of in tho future by the bonds. The $..",.000 annually
can be taken from tho present road levy and still leave a
much larger fund for use on other roads than has ever
been available, without any increase in the taxes.
The bond issue, therefore, provides an economical and
business-like plan of securing a permanent highway, with
its multitudinous benefits, without any increase in taxa
tion, but as the bond interest and sinking fund is less than
half the present cost of maintaining (he road, really ef
fects a material economy and makes possible actual reduc
tion in taxation, or the use of tho money raised at present
MOTIVE POWER FROM ORCHARDS.
ANEW use for cull apples and other waste orchard and
farm products was advocated by Joseph M. Anglada,
mechanical engineer of New York City at the convention
of the National Gas Power show at Convention Hall, Kan
sas City. Friday afternoon.
"Anumber of farmers can get together and form a co
operative plant," Mr. Anglada said. "They can bring
their refuse to ono point and use it to make denatured al
cohol with which to supply the fuel for their farm engines.
This is the solution of the'problem for supplying power on
the farm. f these co-operative associations can be formed
they will be found of inestimable value to all who realize
the importance of the agricultural engine."
Explaining the value of denatured alcohol as a fuel,
Mr. Anglada said that 35-ton trucks had been run in New
York City for a year as an experiment to test its efficacy.
"CSood results were obtained," ho said. " It was found
that denatured alcohol accomplished more work for less
money. Kerosene ma be good for commercial uses, but
the motive power furnished by alcohol is cheaper and
more desirable than that obtained from any other source.
"There, are barrels of apples which go to waste on the
farm. If the fanner could gather up these apples and take
them to a place whore he, with others, 1ms established a
mill, denatured alcohol could be made in large quantities."

Tho Kocord endorses these views.
