A tonm of liorsos struggling along n mud rontl in the endeavor to draw half a load affords a striking object loasou of road improvement when com-lrcto a team drawing a heavily loaded wagon at a comfortable trot along a stone surfaced road. This example must bo multiplied by 8,000.000 in order to obtain the cumulative effect of bud roads upon tratllc in the United States. Not less than 230,000.000 Is the useless tribute annually levied upon the people of the United States by its bad roads. in 1SJK! a widespread inquiry made by the olllce of public roads indicated tlmt the average cost of hauling on roads In the United States was 1T cents per ton per mile. It: 1JKK5 the bureau of statistics ascertained from Its Lis00 county correspondents that the average cost per ton per mile was cents and the average length about of haul OA miles. Thu high cost of hauling Is not the only burden which the American people arc carrying by reason of th!r Iwd roads. In traversing a region of country isolated from markets by of bad roads one Is struck by the wastes of untitled land and by the lack of variety in the products. This Is a condition more frequently due to lack of adequate transportation facilie ties titan to lack of industry and of the inhabitants. The point may be illustrated by assuming a series of concentric circles to be drawn about a market town or railroad station. constituting zones of production in all of which "the roads are uniformly bad. Within the first houc all products can lie delivered to market at a prollt. Within the second none certain products must be eliminated because of the length of haul. Mill;, small fruits and certain kinds "W" vegelahlSi TJni'.TlrtTiprTltiiek-tlollve- ry nrtll careful transportation' might be cited as examples. In the third zone still other products must be eliminated berausc of the prohibitive cost of hauling. The fourth zone will Include only those jiroduets which can be held until the roads are passable and then hauled Inng distances and sold at a profit. Ituyond this zone the laud must be loft unproductive or utilized for grazing and timber. Kvcry improvement In the roads leading from this market widens these zones, makes unproductive land productive and enables the farmer to exercise a wider discretion in determining the character of ids crops. The prosperity of the individual farmer becomes far greater, the tratllc of the railroad Increases, the consumer receives better supplies at lower prices, and thus the beneficial effects continue in an ever widening circle. While it is Impossible to assign an arbitrary percentage or amount to represent the increase in land values by reason of road Improvement, it is generally believed that the average in- ' d d rea-ho- u Intel-licenc-- will be practically dust less, and i'.w bituminous and other binders which will be used in t lie construction of such roads will not only minimize the danger of disease by reducing the dust nuisance, but they arc in a measure possessed of antiseptic properties. There is no phase of life iu tite country, social or economic, which is not affected by good roads. There Is a direct relation between improved highways and the value of land, the attendance of children at school, the health of the community and everything else that tends to make life in the country ellicieut. And litis, in turn, affects the people in t he cities who live on the country products. It is a task the maintenance of good roads which affects every jwrson in tlte country, no matter where he lives or what his profession. Koad building is an art based upon a science. In this age of specialists it almost surpasses belief that the American people, so ir:iot I in all other lines of endeavor, should permit their golden millions to be frittered away TUB SAM K ROAD MACADAMIZED. by men who for the most part know little or nothing about either tlte science or tlte art of road building. There are today more than 1,000 petty road qlllcials in tlte United States, each and all receiving compensation. Very few of these men devote more than a fraction of their time to road work, because their interests lie elsewhere" and their compensation is too small to enable them to devote their entire time to tlte work. It is not surprising that a century and a quarter of this kind of supervision has resulted In lire TTrcsetltr chaotic condition of our public roads. Tlte reforms titat should take place will provide a comparatively small body of trained, competent road builders devoting their entire time to continuous road work. Not only must the roads be built by trained men, but they must be kept In repair. The road building era has already begun. Already great strides have been made in recent years toward bringing about these needed reforms in tlte road laws and administration, In providing more adequate revenues and in devising methods' of construction and maintenance adapted to tlte requirements of modern tratllc Logan W.

This Is not only a beautiful but a very useful plant Tho root of this plant when treated properly with glycerir.o to extract Its medicinal virtues is "valuable In all cases of nervous excitability or Irritability," says Prof. John M.

Another plant which is frequently found in our American forests 13 lWonias, or Unicorn root.

Hence, it Is much used in catarrhal, pelvic drains. Irregularities and painful periods. Prof. King further says, of Unicorn root: "A particular phaso removed by it Is tho Irritability and despondency that often attends theso troubles (referring to tho ailments just mentioned). It has leen found especially adapted to thoso cases in which pelvic fullness, and tho aching, bearing-dow- n organs feel as if they would fall out of the boau."

Black Cohosh and Bluo Cohosh roots wh.cn extracted by tho use of pure, giycerino of proper strength (which is used Instead of alcohol), will almost invariably euro thoso peculiar weaknesses and maladies incident to womon.
