I do not believe Adair county, filled as it is, with the best people on earth, will stand idle much longer, but will go to work to better conditions. Enterprise, energy and industry is all that is needed to start the ball rolling. For the working people, the poor people, it would be a money making issuebonds or any other plan to furnish that class with work through the off seasons; and as the men who own property and have money would have the most to pay, let them pay it, then ride it out in automobiles and rubber tier buggies. The working people could then haul their produce over good roads. I am now over three score and five, and do not expect to make many more trips to Adair county, but to show you that I feel an interest in my native county, I make this proposition: If you will undertake to build five first-clas- s pikes toward the five ad joining county seats, Liberty, Jamestown, Edmonton and Greens- burg, to the Adair county line, for the ones you finish I will contribute $100 or S500 for the five roads.

The implication from the Berlin dispatch carrying these reports is that the British army of 20,000 men is now virtually cooped up in Aden, near the entrance to the Red Sea, which must be held if the southern approach to the Suez canal is to be protected. A situation quite similar to this was reported through German agencies several weeks ago, but London then announced officially that no apprehensions were entertained of the outcome of the operations, which had been merely in the nature of skirmishes.
