said First I would have the govern ment make good road maps of each county in the United States showing all the public highways I would have bad roads printed in red fairly gocd ones in blue and the improved roads in black Those would be published in pocket form and sold at5 cents each at all postoffices This would in effect compel every farmer to see to It that his road was improved for he would soon see the advantage of having his farm located on one of the improved roadsSecond I would levy a tax of 50 cents on every vehicle In the land This alone would yield a revenue of several millions It would furnish all the funds necessary for tbe purpose Thetax would be a trifle and would be cheerfully paid by most people so long as it was to be devoted to the betterment of highways Geo W Thurston

let their broad acres in crease In production and value They feel that they must work and make their land work for them and they ton and sweat a whole year and make their land suffer and yet do not produce a net gain of one half as much as they would by simply lounging in the shade The lower the price of tobacco the more you plant and the harder you work ifou expend double the amount of la bor and tax your land to the utter most aud get poorer every day You havent got as much souse as aI hen i You think you couldnt live unless you keep producing more tobacco to make up for the reduced market price The American hen knows better In the balmy spring time she works over time to fill the demand for eggs When the price gets down near the zero markless than ten above noth ing she literally sits down on the whole business and It she is not allow ed to raise a family she at least spoils the dough and makes the question of egg eatlug a matter of guesswork whether the plate before you contains eggs or chickens When cold weather comes on and the demand is good she lays oil and sas hays around and cackles and eats three square meals a day until the price of eggs goes up to ninety In the shade or until five eggs would pay one hundred per cent on the value of her whole self When the old fool rooster remonstrates she tells him that he hasnt any more sense than a tobacco grower That she can parade the barn yard and make more money than she could by working sixteen hours and laying two eggs a day Now if the farmers of the White Burley district would gain alittle wIs- dom from

statesmen have made speeches of welcome German societies have marched German veterans have pas raded and the German editors have given him a big banquet From the time he landed In New York he has had every form of German except saur kraut and weinerwurst We are glad to see this demonstration on the part of our German Amerltans It Is right and proper that they should show hon or to a Prince of the Fatherland for it Is a poor man who forgets the coun try of his nativity but the Prince should not draw from this wonderful German demonstration any false de duction He should avoid falling into the error that Spain did that In case of war our foreign element would be against the United States There are no more loyal American citizens than the Germans who have been naturalized in this country They left Ger many on account of military service that was compulsory and despotism which held their lives and property In jeopardy In one respect they appre elate the freedom of their adopted country more even than the native born Americans Having lived under a monarchy they know better the privileges of liberty than those who have always enjoyed it They love the flag of freedom Many of them bave

secretary in his speech the other day in the House of Commons admitted a war had never before been waged on such a scale as the South African and with this statement for his justi fication introduced army estimates of 8346550000 The war is now in its third year and the war office is feeding 300000 men and 243000 horses in South Africa A large part of the estimate for the current year must go to tne same purpose It is estimated that at the close of the fiscal year on March 31 the cost of the war will have reach ed 844000000 The cost in life and in suffering has been still more extraordl nary The Boer loss is not accurate known but the mortality in the prison camps added to that in the field has been large The total loss to the BrIt- Ish in killed and wounded has been 100701 men and 5240 officers Recruiting for the regular army has reached its limits and now the volunteer force must be drawn upon to keep the colonial garrisons from sinking below the ordinary strength An enormous debt has been piled up British prestige has been impaired and good feeling with some other countries has bee weakened And when the war isove and the last Boer subjugated the must follow years of difficult and ex pensive administration before South Africa can recover from the ravages of war and enjoy even a remarkable degree of prosperity President Kru ger was not far out of the way when h said that
