Ycry shortsighted then Is the farmer or any other man who does not labor for the Improve- ment of the public highway. Good roads have always been regard- ed as an evidence of n high Btate of civilization, and per contra poor roads just as strongly demonstrate a lowr state of civilization or at least u de- plorable condition of public sentiment, says a writer In Good Roads Magazine.

The paved streets of our cities are said ta be no bettor than many of the country roads Iu Europe. Fancy the convenience and happiness of the fann- er or the country gentleman who can go from one point to another on a smooth, well kept road! His ways are ways of pleasantness, and his paths
