Two Miles Of Kew Road !

Two miles or more of the
new road between Dan
bury and Meadows postoflice
has now been graded, with

be completed in twenty or thirty j
days, after which the road will;
be rounded up and the top soil
placed upon it. i
In order to secure a four ardj

road for the first two miles out,

in it as it winds through the |
hills, but these add to its beauty

when the steel arrives it can i
soon be put in place.

I that science has been able to
i cure in all its stages, and that
!is Catarrh. Hall's Cattarh
Cure is the only positive cure
now known to the medical

Cattarrh Cure is taken internally,
acting directly upon the blood
and mucous surfacss of th e
system, thereby destroying the

i giving the patient strength by
i building up the constitution and
assisting nature in doing its
work. The proprietors have so

that it fails to cure. Send for

A gentleman here from the j
Westfield section this week,
stated that the citizens were j
taking stoe'e liberally in the) 1

A newspaper correspondent at i
j King recently stated in one of
;his letters that the rails and,
I other material for the railway
had already been purchased and
that the survey for the road had
been completed some time since. 1
It is hoped that these reports
are true and that the project;
will go through all right. A

would open up a territory rich

AIECGIMM! HOUSE j
| IS OF GIEAT iMPORIAHCE.
Washington. D. C. The im- j
portance to the farmer of having |
an economical farm house has
'oeen emphasized by the faim
architect of the Department of
, Agriculture, who slates that the
mental and physicial fitness of
; the laborers both within the
| house and in the fields are vitally i
i affected by the building that af-J
I fords the family shelter. The!
average American farm has failed I
'to share in the improvements j
| that are every day being made j
l in agricultural conditions and, ;
; according to the architect, is a
j rebuke to our boasted civilization, j
Relatively, he says the house- i
wife of a century ago with her,
| fireplace cooking and the log
1 cabin was better provided for
j than is the housewife today.
The most important building on
a farm is the home. The health,
| com fort and happiness of the
family are dependent upon its
construction and equipment, and
, unless these matters are looked
after the sanitary dairy barn or
the economically constructed
buildings f>v stock are of little
value. Happiness and content
ment in the family are as essen
tial to efficient service as im
proved tools and outbuildings.
Although the housewife spends,
in many cases, a life time in her
: "workshop," the kitchen and
| the family rooms, she is not, as a
i rule, capable of planning a house
j in the highest degree serviceable
land comfortable without assis
j tance. Her help, however, is
'essential to the farm architect,
las the result of his plans most
! vitally concerns her.
In 1910 a western farm paper,
'at the suggestion of the Depart-
I ment of Agriculture, conducted
|a competition for farm house
plans. About (W0 plans of farm
houses were submitted, not one
of which was fully satifactory.
The larger number insisted on
some particular pet notion and
emphasized a single feature to
the neglect of o f her important
, ones. The men and women who
