Every Intelligent Voter Has Given the Matter Some Thought and Here is a Persuasive Answer for the How and When.

As to labor being scarce and mated d high, this is true, but not in proportion to all other prices. On the other hand there was never a time in the history of this , county when the people had more mou-oypay and would were more able to feel the burden less. Now is the lime of all times in the past and perhaps for the future for our people to begin to contribute towards the building of pikes and permanent roads. Others complain that the road taxes they already pay do not do much, or any good, and for this reason they object to paying more. Now it is true that the small sum of six or seven thousand dollars per annum, raised for the maintenance of our thousand miles of dirt roads is not sufficient to make a great showing, but it does do good and ufif-- r vear. even used in the hoc haphazard and unscientific way that it has bten used. But this is aside from the question. It is proposed that every dollar that is raised from this special tax shall be expended in the building of permanent roads, under the immediate direction and supervision of txperienced road engineers and the Commissioner of Public Roads of the State. Breckiniidge county will this year pay into the State Road fund, throughauto-mobil- e licenses and state road tax about $3,500 and this amount will increase year by year. So long as we are limited to a road tund for the entire county of about $71)00 and all of Ibis is required to maintain our dirt roads, we will never get a dollar of this amount back. As heretofore said, we now have a law whereby the State will pay 7O per cent of the cost of construction of state-airoads in this county. In other words it gives us $7 for every $.1 we put up. If we put up either by taxation or private subscription or both together $.0, 000, t. e State will add to that and make us a present of $70 000; makiug a grand total of 1100,000, This at $5,000 a mile d That of Late Mrs. Eliza Launder Webb of Hawesville and Late F.

Juliau Brown, of will build 'i0 miles of splendid pike. The 20 cent tax will produce annually from 10,000 to $12,000. We believe that the farmers and tax payers, who live on and are interested in the construct'on of any 20 miles of a proposed pike in this county would contribute not less than $20,000 to secure and guarantee such a road passing their way. This then when supplemented by one year's revenues of 10, 000 produces the Mid turn of $30,000 to which the Stale will add the said $70, 000 making the total of the 100,000 to build the proposed TWENTY MILKS OF PIKE. There will be no additional poll tax, so that the man who does not pay on real estate or tangible property will not pay on cent of it. The man who lives on or near a proposed pike, who pays taxes on a thou sand dollar farm, would pay $2 a year for ten years. Thing of it, for tht sum of 20 witt) ten years to pay it in that mau will secure a splendid road which will make his fat in worth 2000, and easier to sell even at that price than it is now.

Then came the orchestra, well filled with soldier musicians, a few chairs for the "honored guests" and after that rows of benches. It was a full house. The singing and acting were all done by the soldiers, and it was extraordinary how much talent and ability they displayed. Warm Praise for Americans.

Uncle Sam is not asking you tc do nate one ce.it, but lie is pleading Ih.U you lend him youi money to help make the world Wfg for democracy. He ofi'ers you a Liberty Bond with a high rate of interest. A Liberty Bond is the safest investment in the world. When a farmer buys a Liberty Bond he not only helps to finance the war, but he becomes a lifesaver for American boys fighting tile most heartless, cruel, lelentle.ss toe that civilization ever has been called upon to face. Last year the great cry was conservation. This year it is thrift. The nation last year was urged to conserve the natural resources and the products of the farms and fields and factories. Greater crops were pleaded for, and canning clubs and city gardens were urged. This year the country is being taught the lesson of spending its money wisely. The government la showing Hie farmer aa well as every other citizen the importance of putting every dollar where it will do the most good. The fact thut the farmer is being told this year to be thrifty does not mean he is not to plant every acre available and till his crops carefully and harvest them when they are ready for the reaper. But n means he is to invest wisely the money he gets for the splendid crops he has demonstrated he is able to raise. Conservation and thrift go hand in hand,. The farmer, as a rule, can find something for which to spend almost every dollar he receives. There always is something to buy. Machinery Is needed, notes must be met, fertilizer purchased, harness, clotiiing, oil and groceries paid for. With the high prices he will receive for his products he will have money left after he has met his expenses. The patriotic citizen will Invest this surplus in Liberty Bonds, the safest investment In the world, and one that will not only brng In a fair return but will help to make America a safe place to live in years to come.
