the rnral districts the in by driving upon will be made to appreciate their advantages and the result will be a revolution of popular feeling in favor of good country Said one of the enthusiasts who lives near spend on an average nearly twentyfour hours a week iu working for reform in the country roads of this do you know that within twentyfive miles of the beautiful city of Utica there are public roads over which it is dangerous to drive an ordinary lightly construct ed buggy And they are not by ways iu sparsely inhabited districts They are the main thorough fares in one of the most prosperous and richest aricnlturiil regions in the And yet for the biggest part of the year these roads are in a frightful A rain will make them almost impass able from mud in dry seasons the wagons have to be dragged through six inches of yielding sand and the dust is enough to suffocate a Arent they repaired occasionally of course they and therein lies the greatest Its an actual fact that the roads are not made better by the so called bat are really made Load after load of gravel is dragged into their center by the farm ers who are working oat their taxes and dumped And there it stays ngly heap of little stones and which is seldom leveled by anything but It not only males the roads un comfortable to ride but it makes them absolutely no matter how good a driver he may is apt to be overturned by it and perhaps have his neck broken on some dark No one will drive on it until increased tiaffic at the sides has rendered them im I have known one of these irregular mountains of gravel to lay on a much traveled occupying the center of the thoroughfare and practically un marked by for two And the number of loads of which I have known to have been upset by such attempts at repairing I couldnt count an my fingers and The root of the opposition to road improvement in the rnral ac cording to my lies The fanner sees that if the country roads were to bemacadamized or telford ized he would have to pay his road taxes in money instead of working them I dont know howmanystateshaveadopt ed this pernicious plan of working out road but I presume it is I believe that it has done the farmers more real damage in this state than all the storms that ever were known here put The thing that the farm er wont believe is that if the roads in his county were good his farm would be enoughmoreprontablesothathecould af ford to pay hisroad taxes in money a dozen times if And yet ita as plain as the nose on his face that if the roads were good his horses could pull more ovr and that if each horse could more he wouldnt have to keep so many and if he had few er horses he would need fewer men to care for there would be a saving in a thousand setting aside the fact that life would be more beara ble in the country if communication be tween different parts ruadu And then again suppose he wants to sell his farm some time Do yon sup pose that a sensible man will pay as much for a farm that is separated from the city and the markets by five miles of mud and misery as he would if those five miles were smoothly paved with broken stone or even traversed by good dirt roads I guess not Take the caseof New for There are many miles of Telford roads iu that state and what do the farmers say of it they say that it has in creased the profits of their farms by 23 and thej say that it has in creased the cash value of their farms by 35 per and they say that it has made life on a farm pleasant instead of I propose to keep hammering away on the subject until something May be it will be my pocketbook and may ifit will be the wall of intolerance and nonsense which so many otherwise sensible men have built around them I hope and believe that it will be the There are a good many men like
