Hooper, a seventeen-yea- r old boy of Union county, rained 145 bushels of corn on one acre of ground which was rated at 65 cents per bushel and at this rate ho made wages for his work and a clear profit of $00 51 above all expenses. Besides this money young Hooper won a $50 00 silver cup at the corn show at Lexington last. week. No Powell county boy did so well last, year as this but we guess no boys of Powell tried so hard as young Hooper, consequently not so much could be expected. We hope to see the Powell County Boys' Corn Club kept, alive and a yield made by some of them that will gain some prominence for the county. The Times would like to see the boys of Powell county take also to the growing of other crops ,Buch as wheat, rye, clover cow peas and etc. These crops do not impoverish the land as does corn, they are on the whole about as profitable to grow, and require much less work. We hope to see the boys of the county take up these crops this year ami make a success of them as well as to the corn crop. n n o o pro-pose- d WALDRON & JOHNSON, Waltersville, Ky.

Utrded by miserable highways the country over, and realizes what a burden this handicap places upon the people, it Is surprising that the whole population does not rise as one man and demand that the highway conditions shall be Improved to the standard required for the twentieth century. Road advocates have shown for years and yoars how much more it costs to haul produce over bad roads than it does over cood ones; how with ;ood roads the farmer can market his produce nt any tlmo he desires to do so and take advantage of market conditions and get the most for what he act to sell. Bad roads are a serious handicap to social conditions, and sometimes for weeks at a time dwellers in the farm home are marooned by stretches of impassable roads. They cannot get out to see anybody and nobody can pet to see them.i The town that is five miles away might as well be twice that. We know that man Is a sociable thing It is part of his nature he can only crow and' develop by meeting his fellow men touching elbows and by soelal and business intercourse. We know that bad roads have been responsible in a very large degree for driving the young people from the farms to the cities. The census for the last thirty years has shown an ever increasing drift of the best brains and blood of the farm to the city. This is true notwithstanding' that there is no better businses .in the. world than farming, if it is done along progressiva lines. It renders a surer and larger return thaar anything else in the world's work, yet the fact remains that the boy is not satisfied with farm life. With good roads, so he could get out, wheaevsr he desired to with his best buggy and girl, or perhaps) aa automobile, aountry life would take on aa .entirely different aspect. The handicap of the bad road is certainly a heavy one and Is farreaching. Kducatloa has suffered greatly by reason of it. The country schools are little, If any, better than they were forty years ago. It Is an open question whether they are as good. The' wages paid the teachers are small. The number of pupils is very limited sometimes three er four often not over a dozen or fifteen. There is no school spirit; there is no anything but dreariness and drudgery with little progress toward education. When the boy and girl get old enough to realize this condition and the parents see It, there Is nothing to do but send Johnny or Lizzie to the nearby town or city, where the schools are better and where there Is an opportunity getting the rudiments of an education, and while Johnny and Lizzie are picking up an education under town condition they are getting the town microbt along with the education. They form friendships and become part of the so clal life of the school; they are not willing to go back upon the farm wltl its dreariness and Isolation. No one ought to blame them for this, in fact 'hey are to be commended In many Instances. The country lass and youth must have the social life that nature lcmand. This sociological fact must be reckoned with. The National Educational commls .lion, made up of eminent educators thoroughly familiar with our condi tltns, has been studying this subject for a long time, and it says that the solution 1h only to be found in th consolidated township school, where Instead of eight or ten Isolated school liouRe8, placed at Intervals at the crossroads throughout the township bleak, lrery acd uninviting there should be one central graded school at the uoa convenient central point, and provisions made to take the children to and from the school. Good roads are decennary If this Is to be done. The school ought to have at least five acres of giound to serve as a miniature experiment station for the study of agriculture, the cultivation of which will fticreato Interest in agriculture and show that farming requires brains a well as tmtsclo. In such a school th boy and girl would be able to get i u!nh school ducutlon and live at bom tit on llw farm. i hi would be the, social as the cd tlonal center of the owi;h'p the ra. ylsg point where tbi Itlzcns could go and hold meetings t would develop the social Ufa, would e strong and he'nful, and the young ppr-iv onlf find "n the central scboo tnd the associations that go with it nu the school spirit that would be cvrloped, a an! lying condition that ould it tl:o life up in the farm Instead of otherwise. Another ham'.ic p to progress and a ins.ee to our whole country, that Is .ery Irr ;y traceable to bad roads, t so many thousands of s the f ct rms'nre rr 'tis from the hands of In o tlfc hands of tenants. The )vn .ve.mng of the children from farm sarrles the r atenta away when advancing years makes it necessary for tbcm to lay the burdens down. Wo are building up a peasantry (It sounds hard to call It that) which promises i tj,e future and raises the uestlon whether we are not establishing here in the central west the conditions that have been the curse ot Ireland tor three hundred years. The result of this condition Is that tho soil Is losing Its fertility; the farm is becoming foul; noxious weeds are growing; the landlord squeezes the tonant for all the rent that is in sight and the tenant takes It out of the farm; he cannot afford for the short lease of one or two years to buy fertilizers; he must simply rob the soil for all he can get and turn It over to his successor in worse condition than be found It He cannot go into stock farming on short land tenures, so he must be what is known as a grain farmer, and this takes the life out of soli. The greatest economic menace of the world today, bar nothing. Is the depletion of soil fertility, and this will go on as tenantry Increases. Thus we see a few of the very many drawbacks that are directly and In directly due to bad roads, and we may add to the list, as stated by the de partment ot agriculture, that the cost of moving farm product to the market and getting supplies back to the farm over bad highways causes an extra expense of at least f 3.50 per person at Its best. This hurrying of product to market swamps the railroad companies and they are unable to move the freight and enables the shrewd dealers in the city to manipulate prices, pushing them up or down, and to reap a rich harvest out of the farmer on the one hand and the consumer on the other. Colossal fortunes have been built up through the grain exchanges. The principal factor that enables them to do this Is bad and at times impassable roads. If good roads advocates will confine their talk and recommendations to the highways that will serve the people, and such highways as the people can afford to build, much greater progress will be made. In some Instances good roads can be built with gravel at hand at from 570(1 to 11,000 a mile. Where the gravel must be shipped some distance the cost will be double. When crushed stone Is used and muet be shipped by train, the expense will be anywhere from J3.000 to $5,000 a iriile Even at $3,OC0 a mile It would pt.y U to build good roads upon th highways, it it is done by the state aid plan! Those 'who are objecting to the building of good roads advance objections that are found to be fallacious, upon a little consideration The writer remembers one man who Interrupted him during an address, and remarked that In some parts of the country they were building hard roads at cost of from $8,000 to $10,000 a mile, and then said that their township bad about 72 miles ot highways and proceeded to show that the expense would be at $8,000 a mile to cover all the highways with this type of road. Upon a little Inquiry it was disclosed that the roads in question were brick roads, built upon a concrete foundation an excellent road to be sure, and such as it may pay to build where the train c is very beavy and there is a large amount of taxable property to pay the bill but these are not the roads that It is usual ly practicable to build. No townshir needs anything like 71 miles. Tin 'acts ara that of the traffic pusses over about ot tht oad mileage, and it has been fount1 he country over, at home and abroad ... i l . I- - t lj found tn'al'tEoie 'opposing he building ot good roads overestimate both the cost of the' roads and the amount of mileage necessary, and It is apparently done with the studied purpose ot trying to convince people that It Is impossible to build good roads on account of the expense Involved. It has been demonstrated tlmo without number that well built roads upon the main highways will pay for themselves every five or six years, treated from an economic' standpoint alone, to say nothing of the educational and social advantages, and the pleasure and satisfaction of using ,a good road Instead of a poor one., The good road boomers should keep In rr.lnd some certain things that are fundamental. First, that under our system of government no large amount of good reads can be built unless the farmers are ready to move in the matter, hence the farmer and not the automobile manufacturer or user must be first considered. Next, that the question of road necessity has the economic, social and educational welfare involved in it 9 Next, that good roads the country over need not cost $$',000 to $10,000 a mile, but through the central west they can easily be built at costs ranging from $1,000 U $5,000 a mile, depending upon local conditions. This price may be sometimes reduced by the use of convict labor in the preparation of material. The farmer should remember that the building of good roads adds to the cash value of his farm more than twice as much and sometimes Ave times as much as the tax he will be called upon to pay to help build them. He should also remember that If the roads were uniformly good it would be much easier to 'get help upon the farm. The farm laborer could provide himself with a bicycle, which can be had a very small cost, and upon rainy days or Sunday he could ge out and see his friends instead of being marooned by impassable roads. The farmer should also remember that over good roads can bo hauled two or 'three times ns much produce as ever bad roads. Taking average road conditions the year round, It is safe to say that if one were hauling over them every day In the year with the same expenditure ot power, at d least morcicould be delivered and possibly twice as much over good roads as over the unimproved highways that are often In good condition, but very1 often bad and sometimes Impassable, i f In a magazine article tho writer ' noted the following. "A prominent southern farmer paid $400 for a pair of mules. Ho refused to pay $300 for a pair of smaller mules because the larger ones could pull 150 pounds more because of their increased size. He refused to vote a bond Issue for good roads that would have enabled the smaller mules to pull 1,000 pounds more." Thus in practice 'we often save at 'he spigot and waste at the bung. The need of the hour Is fo take up the good roads question 'In a big, broad way with a liberal spirit, and realize 'that the roads are a permanent asset to the nation, the state and the township, and that if they are well built iml properly cared for, they wi'l last for many years, and (he expense of building the roadB ought to be ipreai over 20 or 80 years, bq as 'to let thosr who come after us and share In th help pay a part of the "ex pense of building ttam. , Valuable information upon highway construction snd good roads general! ran be had by applying to the office o' public roads.
