Every county should have a
demonstration farm. In fact,
the county that does not have
one in a short time is going to
find itself in the rear end of the
procession of agricultural prog
ress. The thirty-second legisla-
ture passed a bill that permits th
Commissioner's Court of each
county to appropriate as much
as One TliQUsand Dollars for de-
monstration farm work. In a
number of counties in Texas ap-
propriations have been made and
a like sum in each case has been
donated by the Department of
Agriculture of the National Gov-
ejnmenit, The Department not
only furnishes half the money
for conducting demonstrations
but supplies one of its eJcperts
to take charge of the work. This
expert is a practical farmer who

Calvert, Texas, Nov. 20. ■—A
great deal of interest is being
manifested in this county in the
good roads movement. Citizens
both of the towns and county
are discussing the subject with
an activity that presages success
for the various bond issues that
will be voted on in the near fu-
ture, The Good Roads Associa-
tion of Franklin and the Calvert.
Business League are co-operating
in carrying on this campaign.
Franklin precinct, with a val-J
nation of $2,000,000, will vote on
an issue of $100,000, while Cal-
vert precinct with a valuation of,
$11,000,000, will vote on the issue
! 1' $150,000.
No one is no narrow-minded as
to deny the value of education.
Tiiefe is not the slightest possi-
bility of our reaching our ideals
in public education until all of
our rural school can he reached
by good roads.
l.rfft thosee who are not willing
to vote a bond issue for the pur-
pose of building good roads read
the following extract from a
'"Bradley county, with a popu-
lation. of 16,000, issued $90,000
in bonds in 190Q. There was bit -
tcrr opposition, but before the
money was half spent the amount
was increased to $11.6,fKM), selling
for $120,000. Before toads were
lurlt land went begging art from
$8 to $10 nn acre and now easily
sells for from $15 to $30 per
This seems to us to be an ar-
gument for building good roads
that is hard to refute when we
consider that farms in ten years
increased over a hundred per
cent. The remarkkahle rise in
value cannot be attributed to in-
When the crops are in and the
profits!|of the farm can be 'counted
in money the time to start a bank account is ripe;
by doing so you may conduct your^farm as every
good business is conducted.
