FEESE. a WOOTEN of every description the French army won the decisive battle of the Marne, few of us realized that while it was the automobile that made success possible it was the network of good roads north of Paris that made the automobile of any use. Yet those famous roads of France saved the country and the national value of roads was proved. We are now witnessing what troubles lack of good roads causes in our national emergency. We are building sixteen cities, each for the temporary home of 36,000 to 46,000 men of our national army. They must be built in a great hurry, generally some miles from railroads and towns. The railways are building spurs into these camps, but the railroads are congested. Cars used for short hauls to these military cities will stand on sidings much of the time to be loaded or unloaded, when their best national service is in carrying materials long distances. Motor Trucks would permit the delivery of some of the supplies needed in large quantities at these camps but motor trucking is very difficult at many of them because there are no roads suitable for fleets of trucks and the camps must be ready for the army before the right kind of roads can be built.

Miss Winnie Montgomery is visiting at Dunnville. Little Miss Bernice Powell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rollin Powell has been quite sick for several dayt. Mrs. Ben Powell, who was here on an extended visit, was called home suddenly on account the tractor. More tractors the past spring would have made possible a much greater increase in the acreage of spring crops. Whether such an increase was really needed is yet to be seen; but that does not change the fact that a tractor greatly increases the farmer's capacity to do unusual things when the need for doing them arrives. Of course many farmers do not need tractors now and are not likely ever to need them. Still other farmers who are likely to need a tractor in the future are not now prepared to use one to advantage. Of course, too, the buying of a tractor to put in a single big crop would not be good business in most cases. No wholesale rush into tractors is advised, no excitement about increasing crop acreage is called for. Still, this is a good year for farmers seriously to consider the tractor and its possibilities. It is bound to do more and more of our farm work and find a place on a steadily increasing number of farms. Get the tractor catalogues this summer and study them; consult the tractor dealers. Find out just what possibilities the "iron horse" holds for you. Maybe you can find decided profit in using one to put in your fall grain crop. Southern Agriculturist. Adair List of Registration.

The Automobile and Road Build- fog. in 1916 there were 3,513,000 automobiles and 251,000 motor cycles registered in this country, according to the U. S. Office of Public Roads. The revenue they yielded in the form of licenses and registration fees was The revenue had increased 42 per cent., over that for 1915 and the number of cars and motor cycles had increa: d 43 percent. About 92 per cei.t , of the revenue was spent on re ad improvements of some kind. The use of the cars is sho- a by the population per car in the different states. The great a.' state of Iowa star-.!first, with a car for every II p and then follow Calif or n with 12 persons to each car, N braska and South Dakota with 13. Kansas with 16, Montana an' North Dakota with 18, Michigar with 19 and Indiana and Ohio with 20. These are all agricu' ural states, and it is certain, not only from these statistics but a so from common knowledge, u. i1 the automobile has become a val uable part of the farmer's equipment. It is not the great m u ufacturing states, like New York, with a car to every 50 inhabitants, or Pennsylvania with a car to every 97, that show ihu highest popular use of the motor vehicle. The fact is, the farmer, like the rancher in Arizona, where there is a car for every 21 $25,-865,00- 0. - ; I -- The school at this place opened on the 2nd inst., with over 40 enrolled. Prof. Bennett, the teacher, has the reputation of being an excellent teacher, and so we are expecting one of the best schools we have had for some time. There are 89 pupils in the district, and as soon as the farmers get up with their work there will be many others to enter school, and we hope that the county board will allow us an assistant teacher, as it is impossible for any one teacher to handle a school of this size and do the work as well as he could with an assistant. The woods have been full of candidates for the past few days and everyone you talk to claims to have his election already won, but still they must be ,in doubt about it from the way they are hustling, and although there is not half a dozen Republican voters in this immediate vicinity the Republicans appear to predominate in the number of candidates to visit here.

American destroyers convoying the transports proved equal to the occa sion and drove off the underwater boats, with the destruc tion of at least one of them, and probably more. All of the first American division have been landed safely in France without loss of life or even damage to any ship. Twice the transports were attacked by and they were driven off, altwice though Secretary of the Navy Daniels says it was evident that the Germans had knowledge beforehand of the coming of the vessels.

Your only macadam road leading from the railroad or from other public highways should be a free public highway, and kept in the very best condition. The seriousness of this can not be overstated, and conditions will grow worse if the people don't cooperate with one another and with the State Department of Public Roads. Therefore I insist and hope that you will fully understand the importance of good roads and what they mean in this day of prosperity. C. Hoge Hockensmith, State Road Inspector. Next Governor.

We cannot forget the hearty given him by the voters both in the primary and general election, nis record and his actions since he has been in Frankfort stamp him as a man eminently fair, and strong enough to lead the party in any fight. As stated in the beginning, The Herald knows that it is early to discuss such things, but at the same time believes that early discussion will bring better selection.

He was bora Sept., 12, 1916, age 1 year 9 months and 23 days old. He had been sick 2 months and 11 days, first taking whooping cough then measles, and last cholera infantum. His suffering was Intense through all. Every thing was done that loving hands could do, but to no avail. Little Paul will nut only be missed by farther, mother grandparents and little sister, but by all who knew him, for to know him was to love him. His little smiling face and kind and loving ways made love for him whereser he was. But dear ones weep not for little Paul, for he is safe in the arms of Jesus, and is waiting and beckoning with his little baby hands for papa and mama and other dear ones to come and join him where all is peace and happiness. For God said: "Suffer little children io come unto me and forbid them no;, for of such is the Kingdom of heaven. And dear ones put your trust in Jesi , who alone can heal broken hearts.

I promise to give my official income to the various churches in Russell county to be used by them in paying off the indebtedness on church property. In this each denomination (both white and colored) is to share alike in proportion to the amount of indebtedness against them. One representative from each denomination will be asked to help form a committee to assist in the fair and proper distribution of said fund. In case all such church indebtedness shall have been lifted the remaining portion of this fund is to be used on the public highwaysof Russell county. 3. Inasmuch as the county prison is designed to be a house of correction and reform in which all inmates should be given special inducement to proper reflection, and encouraged in every way to set firmer resolutions to live lives as peaceable and citizens of the Commonwealth, it shall be my plan, if elected, to encourage such thought and resolution among the prisoners by supplying them, at my expense, with Bibles and Hymn-book- s and other religious and good secular literature, and in addition to this I propose to secure the services of some minister of the Gospel for at least one service on each Sabbath day.
