The total amount ns submitted to the voters at tin1 election on September lfith will he for $300,00(1.. Q. If the liontl issue should currv when is it proposed that the bonds will he issued? A. As needed to cover the cost of construction of hard surface road work. Q. Where and how will this money he used ! A. The Fiscal Court will make an order showing just how the money will he spent and where, nnd this order is not subject to change bv Court. It has any subsequent. the force and effect of a contract and has been so adjudged by tin; Court of Appeals. The first order will he for bonds to cover the county's share of construction work on. the Midland Trail nnd will probably be for $150,000. Q. Will the county get financial help from other sources? A. On roads npproved for Federal and State aid the county will put up one fourth "E the total cost. On the Midland Trail the Federal will put up $2, the State $1 and the county $1. Thus you see the Federal and State government will put up 3 to our 1. In other words 011 the total Midland Trail project through Bath county which is about '20 miles and will cost about $30,000 a mile or a total of about $000,000, the Federal and State gov. eminent pay about $450,000 of the entire cost and then maintain them henceforth. Q. When do we pay for our part of the work? A. The1 work will probably be done in sections nnd when a. section is completed nnd approved by the State Highway Engineer, they will pay their part and we will pay our. Bonds will he issued only as ncces-ar- y to pay this indebtedness. Fi-c- ul nt and ANSWERS Q. Do I pay any kind of road tax at present for which I get nothing? A. You do. Look at your tax receipt and you will find that you arc paying taxes into the State road fund that is being paid out for work in other counties. If you are an auto owner you are paying for a. license to the tune of about $13.50 to $50 depending on the kind of ear and this is being spent on State aid road work throughout the State- and you are getting none of it. Q. What will become of the present road fund in the event that the road bond issue should carry? A. It will be spent on the balance of the roads of the county. With this main artery out of the way and maintained by the government there will be a large road fund to be used on the other roads of the county, bringing them up to a higher standard of efficiency. There is no reason why Bath county should not then have a system of rondway:-- . second to none. THE BIG QUESTIONS. Q. What is this going to cost me? A. If you only pay poll tax it will cost you nothing? If the bonds were all issued at once it would cost you more than the figure here named, or if it were not for the fact that the payment is made over a period of thirty years it would also cost yon more. A conservative estimate is that it will increase your taxes about The law does, not allow nn increase of over 20c on the hundred assessed valuation anil- it will not likely take over 10c on. the-hundred at the most in any one year. Q. Can the Midland Trail ih,uy event be built through any other section of Bath county? A. It positively cannot. The National government will not approve for Federal aid any road that does not run through a County Seat. one-sixth. ABOUT THE f v f PROPOSED ROAD BOND ISSUE Q. Can this Federal and State aid be gotten in any other way except by putting up our fourth? A. According to Mr. Hoggs, State Highway Kngincer, and Mr. Green I Snrret t, Chairman of the State Highway Commission, it positively cannot. They will probably be here during this campaign and will tell you the same. A letter to either of them would probably bring you niuc, useful information. They said in n recent speech hcYe that there was more calls for this money than they could possibly take care of. Some counties are bidding for it on a fifty-fift- y basis. Mr. Green Garrett said that the completion of the Midland Trail through the Sate was one of his pet projects nnd he would likj to see Us fix the matter up so that he could contract with us before 'his term of office expires, dan. 1st, 1023. Q. Wdiy do this now? Why not put it oil till some other time! A. We have no assurance that we can again get State and Federal aid. Mr. Garrett is our friend in the matter and wants Us to help ourselves. His successor will be a man from Cnnnel City in Morgan county on the Ky. and Va. Trail, a new project extending from Winchester to Pound Gap. And perlmps ho would not be interested in this road project of ours. Q. Is it a fact that more money ' will be spent in the county than is taken from it? A. It is. On the Midland Trail project, the taxpayers of Bath county 'will 'pay in thirty years about $150,000 nnd interestwnthe!- - out-".- ' standing bonds during that time retiring them as rapidly asi possible. The Federal anil State government will spend in the county at the time the work is done about GO per cent, of the total or approximately $3(50,-00TJiis money is paid for labor of men and teams and will be put in circulation in this county at once. 0. t i 1 T f: f: fi i V V x, v I I I X X X . x 1 X X X i I X x X , ' x I X X X f .rfi X r I x x x adv." :1 OWINGSVILLE OUTLOOK. olr fnmUtes mice.

(Oh, how I wish lie was the kind ner of II father you could do that to!) "Charles!" said Aunt Jane again. ped "Surely you aren't going to give In so t. tamely as this to that child and her mother!" RY "I'm not giving in at all, Jane," said Father, very quietly again. "I am conRe- - sulting my own wishes In the matter. I prefer to have her go." 'ay. U : the at the table that noon Aunt Jane read It to Father out loud. So that's how I came to know Just what was In it. She started first to hand it oer to m to read; but as he put nut ills hand to take It I guess he saw 'be handwriting, for he drew back juleMy. looking red and queer. "From Mrs. .ml(rsou to you?" he sked. And when Aunt Jane nodded her head he sat still farther back In his chair and said, with a little wave of his hand. "I newr care to read other people's letters." Aunt Jane said, "Stuff nnd ni'tseiise. Charles, don't be silly!" Hat she pulled back the letter and read It after giving a kind ot an uneasy glance In my direction. Then Aunt Jane cleared her throat and spoke. "You will not let her go. of course, Charles; but naturally I had to read the letter to you. I will write to Mrs. Anderson tonight." Father looked up then. "Yes." he said quietly; "and you may tell her. please, that Mary will go." I In ose ,the we go-1 avy lere nur-pe- at Up- - lient Jwaa I me. jl the 'one f the laud Ann lithe N8 and ed. r BS :h ae e i- - o I 'most cried out then. Some way. It hurt to lime him say It like that, right out that he wanted me to go. You see. I'd begun to think he was getting so he didn't mind so very much having me here. All the last two weeks he'd been different, really dif ferent. Hut more of that anon. I'll go on with what happened nt the table. And, ns I said, I did feel bail to have him speak like that. And I ran remember now Just how the lump came right up In my throat. Then Aunt Jane spoke, stiff and dignified. "Oh, very well, o' course. If you put It that way. I can quite well understand that you would want her to go for your sake. Hut I thought that, under the circumstances, you would manage somehow to put up with the rtolse anil " Jane!" Just like that he Interrupted, nnd he thundered, too, so that Aunt Jane actually Jumped. And I guess I did, too. He had sprung to his feet. "Jane, let us close this mnt-te- r once for nil. I am not letting the child go for my sake. I am letting her go for her own. So far ns I nm concerned. If I consulted no one's wishes hut my own, I should keep her here nlways." With that he turned aim strode from the room, leavlm: Aunt Jane nnd me Just staring after him. Hut only for a minute did I stare. It came to me then what he had said that he would like to keep me here always. For I had heard It. even If he had said the last word very low, and -"wr. Jndlstinct voice. I was wns specially glad mi account of a dreadful time with tint morning. I moan, I was feeling specially louesiimu and homesick, anil like. lie never cmmi spoke at the (He wasn't there hardly long enough to speak, anyway, and he never ate n thine, only his roffee I mean he drank It.) Then he pushed his ehalr hiiek from the table mid stalked nut of the room. lie went to the .station with me; but he didn't tulk there much, only to ask If I was sure I hadn't forgotten anything, anil was 1 warmly clad. Warmly chid. Indeed! And there It was still August, and hot ns It could be! Hut that only goes to show how he was. and how little he was really thinking of me! ilid so hope he wouldn't go Oh. down to the Junction. It's so hard to be taken care of "because It's my duty, you know !" Hut he went. I told him he needn't, when he was getting on the train with me. I told him I Just knew I c.nild do It beautifully all by myself, lady like me. I'.ut he only put his Hps toKcther hard, and said, coitl. like Ice: "Are you then so eager to be rid of me?" Just as If I was the one that was eager to get rid of somebody ! Well, as I said, he went. Hut he wasn't much better on the train than A MONTH LATER he had been In the station. He was as Yes, I know It's been ages since I've nervous ami fidgety as a witch, mid he written here In this book; but there acted as If he did so wish It would be Just hasn't been u minute's time. First, ot course, school begun, nnd I had to attend to that. And, of course, I had to tell the girls all about Anilcrsonvillc except the parts I didn't want to tell, about Stella May-heand my coming out of school. I didn't tell that. And right here let me say how glad I was to get hack to this school a real school so different from that one up In Andersonvllle! For that matter, everything's different here from what It Is In Andersonvllle. I'd so much rather be Marie than Mary. I know I won't ever be Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde here. I'll he the good one all the time. Mother's a dear. And she's so happy ! And, by the wny, I think It Is the violinist. He's here a lot, and she's out with him to concerts nnd plays, And and riding in his automobile. she nlways puts on her prettiest dresses, and she's very particular about her shoes, and her hats, that they're Incoming, and nil that. Oh. I'm s excited! And I'm hnving such n ptiod time watching them ! Oh, I dotCt mean watching them In a disagreeable way, so that they see It ; and, of course, I have to get nil I can for the book, you know; and, of course. If I Just happen to be In the window-sea- t comer In the library nnd hear things accidentally, why, that's nil right. And I have henrd things. There Was Company That Evening. He says her eyes are lovely. He The Violinist likes her best In blue. He's very lonen woman beover, nnd over quick.

And It was so good to have folks around you tressed In something liestdeM don't-carMack alpaca and stiff collars. And I said so. And Mother seemed so pleased. "You did want to come back to me. darling, didn't you?" she cried, giving me u little hug. And she looked so happy when I told her all over again lion- good It seemed to be Marie again, and have her anil Uoston, and automobiles, and pretty dresses and folks and noise ugnln. She didn't say anything about Father then; but later, when we were up In in pretty room alone, and I wns taking off my things, she made me tell her that Father hadn't won my love away from her, and that 1 didn't love him better than I did her; and tlmt I wouldn't rnther stay with him thnn with her. And she asked was he lonesome; and I told her no, I didn't think so; and that, anyway, be could have all the ladles' company he wanted by Just being around when they called. And when she asked what I meant, I told her about Mrs. Darling, and the rest, and how they came evenings nnd and how Father didn't like them, hut would tlee to the observatory. And she laughed and looked funny, for t minute. Hut right away she changed and looked very sober, with the kind of expression she has when she stands up in church and says the Apostles' Creed on Sunday; only this time she said she was cry sorry, she was sure; that she hoped my father would find some estimable woman who would make a good home for him. Then the dinner-gonsounded, and she didn't say any more. There was company that evening. The violinist. He brought his violin, and he and Mother played a whole hour together. He's awfully handsome. I think he's lovely. Oh, I do so hope he's the one! Anjhow, I hope there's some one. I don't want this novel to all lizzie out without there being any one to make it n love story!
