COURIER MRS GEO WARREN l V3S MAGGIE ELLISONProprss GEO W WILSON Lessee and Editor Y PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY O WOOD ROADS r We would again urge upon the farmers and business men of ytiie county the necessity for some action regarding thebetter ing of the condition of our coun try roads Just now it is true there is no necessity for any im inpravementI first class condition except per haps the bottom road but this shouldnot deter the good roafls i enthusiasts from agitating the question and keeping it upper most 111 the mindsof the farmers We should not follow the exam pIe of the Arkansas Traveler who had a large hole in the roof of his house and which in film weather needed no repairing and in rainy weather could not be repairee because of the bad weather While the roads are now1n good condition we must not forget that the season is ap p paching when they are more than likely to become impassi ble No man who has lived in this county for any length of time and who has ever had oc casion to traverse our roads dur f ing the bad seasons but who knows the necessity of a change inthe system of keeping them in repair There are some who unable to see beyond the end of their noses endeavor to decry the good roads movement but we are happy to say that these form a very small pertion of thei population and generally they have no inrerest whatever in time matter except to be knock ting They are small potatoes auti few in a hill As to the means to be adoptedl for bringing about the desiredI end honest differences of opin ion exist and each and everyone of these are entitled to tin same consideration that is askedI for the scheme that has found1 publicity through the columns of the Courier The plan is notI V ours rwe wish we could truth fully say it wasbpt is the result of concentrated thought andlI experiment of men who have given the subject their closestt attention and study for years and are acknowledged authorities on it We sincerely believe- th t the direct taxation plan off keeping up the voids is the best that has so far been proposed I and are consequently heartily in favor of it Should another plan be proposed which promised bet ter results for the amount f mo ney expended and which would1 give more satisfaction to those directly interested we would have no hesitancy in advocatin it as strongly as we have the di rect taxation plan That something needs to be done there is hardly a man to dispute The question is7 how 4Shall it be done Upon this question some sort of an agree meet could be arrived at by a series of mass meetings held iin the different precincts of tin county By tills j means delegates could bechpsen to speak for the people fit the next ses sion of the Fiscal courVajid this body wo11l E toE merit if it was so inclined to
