Iew phase oi- work.
How Agricultural Department Will
I'se Collection of Lantern Slides.
There Is a phase of the roiul work of
the department of agriculture that from
now ou will receive more attention
thai ever and will be of the greatest
interest to every community In the
United States that expects to build a
road, and especially to the agricultural
colleges that are helping in this work,
:eays the Washington Star. It 'is thp
lantern slide department of object lea
fcous and missionary work. The road
fcfflce since its establishment has ac
cumulated one of the most unique col
lections of lantern slides on the road
fquestion that have ever come together.
jThere are pictures from all over the
United States, und many from abroad,
showing roads of all sorts, good, bad
md indifferent. Some of th bad roads
at the United States, by the way, are
about the worst In the world. There
are pictures of roads In all stages of
construction, showing the material used
find how it is put togetlKr and the ma
chinery used in the work. There is ev
ery phase of material getting, from the
,work of the convicts blasting out rock
'at the Folsam pcnltpravry to the lat
jest Improvement of rock crushing ma
chinery. f There are enough of these slides to
furnish a dozen series of pictures, each
a lecture in itself on road building, the
Seed of roads, the difference in trans
portation that the coming of good roads
las made and the history of roads and
transportation all over the country,
fliese pictures are being arranged in
series and will form an illustrated circulating-
library for the agricultural col
leges of the country that want them.
They nre to be loaned out to the col-
A BAD EOAD IN VEBMONT.
Jeges, with or without lectures accom
'panying them, and will form a valu
able auxiliary to any school that Is
teaching roadmnklng, besides making
an interesting lecture for the communi
ty at large, and the smaller towns espe
cially are very much alive to this sort
of entertainment and education. The
set of slides Is a collection that none
( of the smaller colleges could ever get
for themselves, both on account of the
prohibitive cost and the difficulty of
finding just what they wanted to illus
trate a particular phase of the work at
a given time. It is the sort of thing
that the government, with agents ev
erywhere, can get together at compara
tively little trouble and expense, and
it will be made available for use in a
score of colleges year after year at
practically no expense to the govern
ment and none at all to the school.
Value of Good Roads to Property.
The question "Do good roads pay?"
Is being continually demonstrated by
such facta as this, taken from a Flori
da paper: J. C. Sloth, the real estate
broker, could have bought a certain
tract of land a few months ago at 1000.
An "object lesson" road was bnflt In
the locality, and he was authorized by
a client to pay $3,200 for It, but found
when be made his tender that It had
Jost been sold for $2,700. The value
had been enhanced by an amount suffi
cient to pay for half a mile of im
proved road, and the gain on value of
half a mile of abutting property at the
same rate would pay for ten miles of
good roads at the same cost.
Rural Delivery Notes
England has a rural mall delivery
daily except to very distant farm
houses, which are served triweekly.
The states in the northern part of the
Mississippi valley are the ones In
which the rural free delivery business
has been extended the most Illinois
leads all other states with 2,003 routes
in operation. Ohio Is second with 2,392.
"Rural free delivery has made a
considerable difference In the amount
of memorizing that postal clerks on
Indiana routes hav to do," said one
of the number, according to the In-
fdlanapolls News. "Five years ago
'there were 2,202 poatofflces In Indiana
Iwhose names we had to remember,
land now there are only 1,604. The re
duction of over 500 offices Is due to
Ithe rural free delivery."
Miss Susie M. Stoltz Is the only wo
,man rural mall carrier In Illinois or In
iWabash county, says the St Louis
Post-Dispatch. Miss Stoltz is nineteen
"years old. Her borne is at Card's
Point, ten miles northwest of Mount
.Carmel, in Wabash county. She has
had a route out of Mount Carmel
for the past eighteen months and
In all that time has only missed one
day. That was when she went to a
convention of rural carriers at Olney.
Miss Stoltz's route Is twenty-six miles
long. She drives that distance In a
buggy every weekday of the year, in
sunshine and rain, through flood and
nnd and snow and let.
