JFor Good Roads.
By accident we got to Ar&rlsaS
Pass some five years ago, when
buildings were being moved away,
but owing to the good climate and
;a chance to own a small home we
agreed to stay and lend a hand in
tj,ie upbuilding of a truck farming
Since the “Deep water boom”
started, we are more than glad we
are still here and always eager to
see the Progress, because we are
looking for more of the good news.
A few days ago a party travel-
ing in an automobile from Dallas
remarked, the worst roads on the
trip are near Aransas Pass, and
since we come to think of it not a
word for good roads has been
written or spoken that we know of.
bought feed 10 cents less per sack
and the third has a lot of wood he
would sell at Aransas Pass this
winter, but the roads are so bad,
still another had sold a load of
melons but failed to realize a very
great profit as it is worth so much
to haul them.
We are told that the people of
Tarpon would be pleased to see
their mail by the way of Aransas
Pass, if Aransas Pass had a general
store, yet prospective general
merchants don’t think it will pay
yet. Build good roads so the
farmers for ten miles around can
come to buy the cheap bacon,
feed, etc., and sell his products
and your merchants will put in a
stock that Tarpon people will be
glad to paronize.
Last summer we petitioned the
Some counties up the state spend department for a rural mail route
more money for bridges than it
would cost to build good roads all
over Live Oak peninsular. Dallas
county has over 200 miles of
piked roads, at a cost of $1,400 to
$2,500 per mile, is still building
more and voting a tax for Itill
more road money. The reason
their roads cost them so much
is because all their materials have
to be bought and shipped in at a
great expense. The road machin-
, ery is- another heavy expense and
then as already said the bridge
fund there alone, costs enough to
build our roads. Here we have
the material for the asking, no
~. road machinery required, no
bridge fund needed, no mountains
to climb, just a smothe sandy soil
, with the shell nearly costing abso-
lutely nothing except the expense
> of hauling, still there’s nothing be-
i ing done ip this direction.
Some four or five farmers were
> talking about Aransas Pass the
, other day, as a. trading point; one
said he bought bacon 2 cents
cheaper, thanelsewhere, another

out of Aransas Pass and when the
inspector camee he said, “you
have the people, but no roads,
help yourselves a little and the
government will help you. He
agred if we would work on the
roads and re-open our petition

What the Hens do
The cackles of the American
hens are swelling into a mighty
chorus. Sixteen billion times a
year these small citizens announce
the arrival of a 'fresh laid, and
the sound of their bragging is wax-
ing loud in the land. According to
the latest census there are 283,598,
000 chickens of laying age in the
United States. These are valued at
$70,000,000. The eggs they lay
would, if divided, allow 203 eggs
annually to every person—man,
woman and child in the United
States. The value of the fowls-
$85,800,00 would ,entitle every
person in the United States to
$1.12, if they were sold and the
proceeds divided. All the weight
of the products exported, the pork
beef, tallow, ham, bacon and
sausage, 846,860 tons, while the
weight af the eggs laid yearly tips
the scales at 970,363 tons.—Tech
Hereafter, the young men and
women of the State of Washington
who wish to get married must pre-
sent themselves before a minister
or justice armed with a physician’s
certificate that they are physically
and mentally fit for the state of
wedlock. As usual, it is one of
the newer communities which has
taken A step in legislation which
seems radical, although there is
abundant scientific logical justifi-
cation for the new Jaw. The con-
venient situation of British Colum-
bia, however,—to say nothing of
Oregon,—makes it probable that
love will now and then have his
laugh at lawmakers as well as at
