Personal comfort importantIICommercei a reason that ap more eloquently to the modern mind Commerce is ab solutely dependent upon the pub lic roads The farmer must haul his crop to the railroad The miner must get his products to the carriers Ample facilities add to the producers wealth for they not only make his cost of hauling low and spur him to re newed efforts year by year but they increase the values of land They help the individual and the CommonwealthGive a splendid system of highwaysand put down the night ridersand landvalues will rise inevitably It has been a subject of consideration and discussion whether the socalled pauper counties of the State that is the counties which draw from the State treasury more than they pay inare poor be cause their roads are wellnigh impassible or whether their roads remain wellnigh impassable be cause the counties are poor The weight of the argument is in fa vor of the theory that the counties are pauper communities for the reason that they do not build roads that they might develop their commerce increase the values x f their Jands and so add to their productivity in general The BosworthWyatt act aims to remedy existing conditions in Kentucky by making possible the construction of additional roads and the improvement of those which now more closely resemble bogs than thoroughfares It plans for those counties which are able to help themselves means whereby they may help them selves and for those which are not so fortunate a way whereby they may be helped What the State advances must be repaid but with good roads in the place I of bogs the counties increased prosperity will make the obliga tion an easy one Courier Jour nal II VGLENSFORK VV Dr Hammond and E A Strange were in Burksville a few days ago Rev JF

enroute having sojourned in Illinois and Missouri during that time His wife having died he came here in 1901 and has since made his home with his sister Mrs Theressa Dudley While here he made many
