This is especially of streets, otc. true of our stock. When Mr. Eldrldgo was hero (sent by Road Department, Washington, D. HELM & ELLISON C) I took him to Fulton up State Itoad and back via Stato Line. He assured mo that we could build a good road up the Stato Road for threo or four miles from Hickman for $3,500 per mile. In tho samo way ho said we could build three or four miles out from Fulton at about the samo prlco per mile. But when wo got near Cayce, ho said there would bo moro work and moro hauling so the cost would bo greater. He also said that It would cost much more to build a good road on State Line than on Stato Road. In addition to this, I doubt tho people on Stato Line subscribing as liberally as some on Stato Road. I am told there aro three men who will gtvo six thousand dollars to niako a good road out from Hickman on 8tato Road. Others will glvo seven hundred and fifty, tlvo hundred and smaller amounts so that I think thcro could be funds raised to build a good road out threo or four miles from Hickman, say to He-zDell School Houso. Now Is tho tlwo to get up tho subscription, whllo tho roads aro bod. Ralso the money now and send to Washington next spring as soon as tho frost Is out of tho ground and tho government will send ono good man, perhaps two, to superintend tho work freo of chargo. Tho railroads, no doubt, will glvo cut rates to haul gravel to build roads. .Mr. Kldrldgo says they ore doing this all over tho country wherever tho peoplu will build good roads. You say there will be a bill Introduced to work convicts In stono quarries to get out stono for farmers, roads, etc. Why not put them In gravel pits on public rouds as well? Mr. Eldrldgo says that ho has worked on roads for ulne years, and has used ull kinds of labor, but says that convicts aro tho cheapest hands wo can got to build roads. A gentleman at JackBon, Tenn., where they aro building excellent roads, told mo tho samo thing, If you can work up a friendly rivalry with Kultou nnd have her people build throo or four miles out west to meet us it will bo much better thau to havo tho two towns fighting each other as they havo beou for so many X mas "Undo" Perfumes and was walking through the yard3 when the train, In charge of Conductor J.

Get six or eight miles of road built by subscription and let the people seo what they are tho difference be tween good roads and tho ones wo have, the difference In the prlco of farms on these good roads and other farms and then tho people will bo ready to tako up tho matter of better roads.

The comparison between the prices quoted for the test bill of goods in IM9S and those furnished by the same dealers from the same localities for 1909 shows that tha aggregate price of the same has increased 37.13 per cent during the last eleven years.
