Gay Hill, June 17.—The Brushy riv-
er was on a rampage again the past
week end. Most every farmer who had
a crop in th, bottoms, lost it, as the
water was higher than it has been in
a good many years. The grass is grow-
ing as fast as the crops. The rains
which fell the past three days will keep
the farmers from a few- days’ work.

THE MONUMENT MAN
you’re safe on CONCRETE
night the superiority of con-
crete becomes most apparent
because of its visibility. Its light
gray surface with sharply defined
edges reflects Light but is not glossy.
Concrete conforms precisely to
the formula for the ideal pavement
set up by the International Illumi-
nation Congress of 1928 and by
the Illuminating Engineering
Society in 1934. The importance
of this is emphasized by the fact that
the rate of death peraccidentis 43%
higher during hours of darkness.
Concrete, smooth but non-skid,
insures a quick, certain stop e>en
in the rain. Blow-outs, spring
breakage, steering gear failurej,
accidents of all kinds are less apt
to happen on concrete.
Yet concrete is not only safe—it is
more comfortable—it savesindriv.
ing costs—it costs less for upkeep
—and cost of construction is less
than that of any other pavement of
equal load-carrying capacity.
