Government authorities have prepared exhibits to
different types of road construction in the United States.

Rural districts especially are apt to submit to bad:
roads as a sort of necessary evil; but if this display can'
be given wide enough prominence, almost any rural dis-j

The human nervous system is a battery. Sunlight is
a force that will charge that battery. Fresh air helps,
but the main thing is sunlight. Nerve specialists know
this: tuburculosis specialists know it; but a perverse pub
lic gives too little heed to their teachings.
It is the simple, unvarnished truth that men, women
and children can .derive physical and mental energy direc1,

an electric automobile.
Some people cannot stand this sort of treatment quite
bo well as others, because they are sensative to sunlight,
and more easily over-stimulated. But it seems to lie only
a question of degree. Everybody can stand some direct

TRADE IN YOUR OLD GOODS
Cy Walt Mason
No matter what goes wrong, no odds what wires are
crossed, you'd better heave a song, than see your temper
lost. If cussing things would help, I'd say, "By all means
rass; put up a howl and yelp, and raise a beastly fuss."
But this course doesn't chase the shades of gloom away;
just wear a cheerful face, and things will be 0. K. I drove
dght hundred miles, this spring, in my tin car; the rain
in fifty styles, came down, from clouds ajar. The road
way was a flood, and my old faithful boat just foundered
in the mud, and there gave up its goat
I d have reared and pawed around and wept, and torn
, my sorrel beard, while watch and ward I kept. But years
have made me wise; I know that patience wins; and forty
thousand sighs aivnt worth a brace of grins. And so I
, waited there and whistled half a day; then saw a granger
fare with horses down that way. lie hauled me from the

h'etsed my goodly luck. The mudhoks dot life's way, and
there we ofl are mired; and some stand up and bray, and

that should be canned, until some fellow comes and hauls
