They appear to be anxious now to carry on their invasion, but are meeting with strenuous opposition from Austria, where the people and the � government spent, be not really spent, but only well invested'.' But the dollars side is not the only side of the question. Good roads have a moral, educational and civic value that cannot be measured in dollars and cent's. Where good roads are found, there also are found the prosperous communities with good schools well attended, good teachers, and a public spirited and enlightened population. Poor roads mean illiteracy much opposed to resuming war Good roads education, and enlighten- ere with Russia. They to the proposal. are even iiostile A JOB FOR MRS. McK'NNEY There is a good explanation for the infant mortality charge of Mrs. Mc-Kinney against Lethbridge. Mrs. Mc Kinney can aid in remedying matters by having the vital statistics act amended so as to enable reliable figures to be obtained. The fault is .with the Alberta system of statistics. In fact there isn't any system: it is merely a hit and miss plan. That doesn't en- nient: for the children of today are to be the men of tomorrow. Electors! Legislators.' Judges! Good roads help to solve all the great social and economic problems of today--the cost of living-the overcrowding of cities- the social evil, crime, disease. To maintain such a system of roads �-and by maintenance I do not mean patching but I mean allowing no depreciation after construction -would probably cost three or four million dollars annually. Under normal conditions the interest on the original investment would be four or five million dollars. Altogether, eight million dollars annually would probably take care of it all. Of that eight million dollars, let us dream that two million courage accuracy and complete Inior- � dollars were taken care of by the '.cities and towns, and the remaining mation. _ . I six million dollars had to be met by , -"---"  taxation on the lands.

But with such a system of roads, would not everj quarter section as a matter cf fact be increased in1 value an average of four or five hundred dollars, or perhaps more? And would not his alone justily the S2o' "Drought about by the absence of good ; per year, regardless of the other in-_n..,ia I estimable benefits? Is it a beautiful , ., ,, . ... . , dream? As a matter of fact, in those Recently Mr. Charlesworth, Alberta s ; part3 of tha continent where such deputy minister of public works, gave ; dreams have come true, the people are some facts and figures about good I t;o convinced, that, if necessary, thoy roads are a great asset to a country. No matter from what .angle you con-; sidor them, there are prime factors in the development of a country. Little , do we realize, however, the los3 ; would do the whole thing over again ; and be willing to pay the whole co3t i in one year. Now, after reading these splendid arguments for good roads the average' person will observe "Fine, fine but impossible." Probably so at present j but it is something that we should aim j to eventually possess in Alberta-and j we will undoubtedly have good roads up j to Mr. Charlesworth's idea, in the  years to coma. As Mr. Charlesworth i said: "Dream about this, and don't j forget to tell your dream to every far-; mer in this country." When the farm-1 ers fully realize the great value of j good roads they will not complain ab-i out paying a tax to create and main-) tain them. Good roads of the higlttr' type must come, and It is a good time; to educate the people to their value. ! roads, that we are sure have never been realized by our people. The roads which have been so far Improved in the province have cost all the way from $50 per mile up to as high as fTOO or fbOO per mile. Mr. Charlesworth considers a road system costing $5,000 a mile and what it means. Such a road would be thoroughly drained with grades below two per cent, and surfaced so that at any eeason of the year they would be a pleasure to travel upon, and where probably three tons could be hauled where one is at present. Considering whether money so spent wo'uld be well spent or not Mr. Charlesworth made these observations which are worth seriously considering: The weight of farm products alone in Alberta last year was over five million tons. The greater part.of this Is hauled over our roads, and, With coal, lumber and merchandise nd products of all kinds; I think it is afe to estimate that a total of ten million tons of freight annually passes over our roads. The average haul is probably a shade under ten miles. The cost of hauling, which has been estimated for the United States, and which is probably applicable here, is twenty-five cents per ton per mile. With a sufficient mileage of good surfaced roads, this could doubtless . , be reduced to ten cents per ton per | Tlle naturaI resources for the west-raile, or,, in other words, one dollar ' ern provinces is not yet a deferred Isanti fifty cents could be saved upon each ton hauled over our roads each year-a total annual saving of: 10,-000,000 tons at $1.50 equals $15,000,000.

It would appear that there was I a prospect of an early settlement of : the matter. operating expense of 12Vb cents per mile, this costs. $15,000,000. Good roads could undoubtedly reduce this cost by ten per cent., an annual saving of $1,500,000. The value of horses, horse-drawn Tehicles, autos, etc., in the province at Alberta Is doubtless not less than $100,000,000.
