The third annual banquet of the Win

for the betterment of the conditions in
that section in which it is located, was
recently held in Somervllle, says the
A short business meeting was first
on the programme, after which the of
ficers elect were installed. These ex
ercises were followed by an address,
and the banquet was the last feature
of the evening.
The report of the secretary, Mrs. A.
M. Smith, who has held the office ever j
Blnce the association was formed three i
years ago, was full of interest to the j
members. In it she reviewed the his-;
tory of the body and complimented the
members on the proportion of Improve-1
ments they had succeeded in obtaining
out of the number deslreD.
Speaking of the membership, she said j
the roll contained 118 names, 91 of i

been attended by a number who had j
given the work of the association their
Mrs. Smith commeuted on the fact

BENEFITS IN GOOD ROADS.

1 Organize good road clubs. Get every
association of business men, farmers,
every newspaper, to push along the
good roads movement. There are few
other things more Important to the peo
ple of agricultural communities and
rural towns than the good roads prop
osition, says D. M. Carr In Home Trade
Advocate. It is something that every
good citizen should be interested In.
It Is a question of the greatest elements
of economy. Good roads throughout
the fanning districts of the country
mean millions upon millions of dol
lars yearly saved to the farmers. They
mean millions more In benefits to the
rural towns. Every citizen should ap
point himself a committee of one to
work for the end to be attained by the
co-operation of the national with state
governments In the road Improvement
Don't be afraid to write to your mem
ber of congress, Individually and col
lectively, and urge his support of the
proposed measure for governmental ap
propriation for the needed improve
ment. Talk good roads to your neigh
bor, join the people of your town In
booming local Improvement and urge
your representative In the state legis
lature to give support 'to any legislation
that has for Its aim better roads for
the farming districts.

German Care of Landscapes.
Most German states have laws to
prevent the disfigurement of landscapes
by advertisements. The district au
thorities, like our county boards, are
authorized to determine what land
scapes, buildings or monuments of a
historical or artistic value should be
protected, says the Xew York World.
.Violations of the statute are made pun
ishable by fine, with or without im
prisonment. The statute provides
against the display of pictures, adver
tisements or other things calculated to
mar or disfigure any especially attrac
tive landscape or detract from the
artistic or aesthetic effect of any build
ing or other structure of special im
portance or be highly prejudicial to any
street or part of a town. The altera
tion of buildings of historical or artis
tic value may be prohibited by the
local authorities, as may v construc
tion of other buildings calculated to In
terfere with such historical monuments.

For the Pnbllc'a Information.
It would be a good idea for every
town, village and bamlet along the
line of any railroad to put up a sign
or two somewhere In proximity to the
railroad station setting forth the name
of the town and whatever claim it
has for historic, residential and Indus
trial interest, says Four Track News.
Travelers often wonder when a train
comes to a stop what the town is that
spreads out before them and wherein
lies its excuse for being. True, the
railroads are doing a great deal to ex
ploit and advertise the attractions,
cenic and commercial, of most of the
more important places, but It wouldn't
be an altogether bad idea for the
towns to do a little something them
selves, If only to set up a bulletin of
