The friends Of good roads through- j

America. Fruits of this announce

Already there is a revival ci the
agitation for broad tires, which, it is
asserted by those who have studied
the matter, will materially aid in the

California had previously passed a
law which will take effect January 1,
1900. regulating the width of tires to
be used on all vehicles, according to
the size of the axles, and providing a
heavy money penalty for infractions.
Thus ample time is given by the
statute for the farmers and others to
have their tires changed.
It is demonstrated that whereas
the narrow tires are road destroyers,
cutting ruts into the best surf ices and
breaking into the foundations, the
broad tires are load makers, rolling j wblch promises to be one of the long

size affects a double gain.
It is a curious fact that country
blacksmiths as a rule advise their
patrons to stick to the narrow tires,
urging that the draft is lighter with
them than with the broader ones.
This is untrue, as has been shown by
actual experiments, except in certain
infrequent conditions of the rorch
With good roads even these excep
tions would be impossible. In the
long run the broad tire will save the
stock of the farmer hundreds of
thousands of pounds of hauling. It
would seem to be to the interest of
the smith to fall in with the march of
progress and advise the setting ol
broad tires, for that would bring a
great rush of business.
The remedy appears to lie is the

Editor Home and Farm :
.1 see by some of the recent papeis
that the5 subject of using cotton bag--ging
for baling our present year's crop
of cotton is being agitated. And why
not, brother fhrmers ? Beyond
doubt it is to our interest to have ev
ery pound of cotton consumed that
we possibly can, even if we are una
ble to buy to satisfy our own needs.
There is one thing we can do. We
can w rap our grow ing crop of cotton
in bagging made of cotton, and it will
be no experiment, either. It has
be in tried and found to be a success.
It will help to swallow up the great
surplus caused from over production
that the speculators claim. It will
hep to break down some trusts ar.d
monopolies that now feast at the ex
pense of the cotton growers.
It will- help to weaken combined
capital arid bring us m closer touch
As I said, it will be no experiment,
but we all can pact our shoulder to the
wheel, knowing a success was made
of it before and will r.e again it tried.
With cotton bagging we surely can
be independent ol - iute trusts and
high tariff on jute bagging can not
hurt us Mr. Editor, I do not want
to claim any more space in your pa
per at present, but hope what I have
written will cause others to give their
views and will cause other papers
that posses a friendly feeling toward
the cotton growers to speak out on this
. V. FWnnino.
Few medicines have held their
ground so successfully as Ayer's. Cher
rv Pectoral. During the past llfty
years, it has keen the most popular of
all cough cures and the demand for it
to-day is greater than ever before.
