As will be noted in another column of this paper the fight is on for better roads and it is up to All who really want them to fall in line and if they cannot concur in the resolutions adopted at the meeting held at Onley on monday to suggest something better. Honest criticism in fact is invited to the end that the defects in the resolutions presented May be eliminated. It is not True As some urge that Quot what was Good enough for our daddies is Good enough for we live in an age of Progress with greater responsibilities and multiplied opportunities that they knew nothing of and Road improvement is surely too important a Factor in our Progress to be neglected if we would Bear our burdens Well and Avail ourselves of the privileges open to .

There is no doubt of the proposition that certainly in the country districts this class of workers is All inadequately paid at the present time. The existence of the condition suggests the unassailable Force of the truth that in enlarging and improving Virginia a scheme of educational dispensation we must first have a care As to the foundation upon which rests the entire system and thus regard As of primal importance the widening and expansion of advantages offered by schools comprehending the grammar grades. If at the expense of this first step in education the higher institutions of learning Are the subjects of preferential consideration Virginia is building unwisely is rearing a top heavy and hence a most unsatisfactory and ill proportioned Structure. In education As in All the affairs of government the Extension of the greatest Good to the greatest number should be an inflexible and unvarying Desideratum. And when it is considered How Small appears the number of Young people of the state who Are so situated As to be Able to enjoy the benefits of a College education As compared with the great mass of them who attend or desire to attend the grammar grades in the Public schools it seems to us that longer terms for Rural schools equipped with first class teachers paid at least a living salary ought to be one of the most impelling concerns of our state government for Sale a tract of Timber containing from 50 to 60 acres to 3 Miles East of Legato station.
