Being distinctly agricultural it is All the More important that it should have a system of Good hard roads to facilitate and cheapen the marketing of its enormous products. Its people Are intelligent progressive and far sighted. When a Small mountainous county like Wise does not hesitate to tax its credit to the amount of seven Hundred thousand dollars for Road construction purposes it is inconceivable that a Large and prosperous county like Accomac would balk at issuing two or three Hundred a thousand dollars Worth of Bonds for a like purpose if the question were submitted to the vote of the people. Our suggestion to the supervisors of Accomac is to act upon the advice of the Enterprise and to act promptly. If they do we Are confident they will have no reason to regret their action nor any cause to be disappointed at the the supervisors of Accomac at their meeting on monday discussed the matter and one of their number approved the views of the Enterprise but no action was taken. The Light will Dawn upon them though at a Day not very Remote it is to be hoped that we Are living in an age of Progress and that they must get out of the Quot old ruts and take a broader View of the things pertaining to the present Day.
