said when the monkey grabbed a hand
full of her tail feathers. Then you'd ought
to have seen the fight which followed;
and the monkey sits up on top of a pole,

take a drop if the Boss gets after him like
he does after high paices!

stiortly commence the erection of
a neat colonial bungalow on the
site he has secured. The new
bungalow will have live rooms
ami a bath on the ground floor
and on the second floor two good
sized rooms will be made. A
feature of the house that will ap

the porch, which will extend
across the north end of the
huiiding and which will be ten
feet deep and make one of the
neatest appearing houses in the
city, and.it is located in easy ten

when erected by Mr. Uay

for rental as soon as completed,
and it will make a splendid home

Baylor shows the proper spirit
and is very commendable in him
in showing his confidence in the
future of tlie city.

These ent erprpies in the

of the general movement in that
direction and several others in
our city are soon to get into the
procession by the erection of

add not only to the appearance of

good financial move on the part
of the parties putting up the

GOOD ROADS Ai
WASTE OF FUNDS Just-as-Good
The general agitation over Ihe
country in favor of belter country
roads ha quite naturally raised
the cry from various sources that
a great part of the funds spent
on road improvement is wasted.
The truth of l!i!s indictment. i
apparent to anyone who is
familiar with tlie general practice
in road improvement, so-called.
Plenty of money is spent in prati
ing roads and considerable in
putting in bridges, but the
amount spent in maintenance
work is neg Usable.
The usual theory of precinct,
and even county, road builders is
to think that a l'oa.l once graded
or a bridge once put in needs no
attention again until it is impas
sible. Then the work is done all
over again, and the new work left
to deteriorate at the same rate
as Ihe former.
Road buibb rs and farmers are
beginning- to realize that a dirt
road is not a permanent impioe
ment, a pile bridge is no better,
and even a concrete culvert can
not be called indestructible if
subject to constant abuse. The
spread of this idea means to us
the beginning of a time of real
good road progress.
Nowhere more than on a dirt
road or country bridge does "a
stitch in time save nine." The
farmer who drags his road when
it needs it after every rain is do
ing a bigger thing than the
grader outfit can do. In the
course of a few draggings tie will
have established a real road that
will shed most of the water fall
ing on it and offer a firm, even
track for vehicles. If he is bat
tling with a load in which sand
predominates, h. has a lugger
task in dry weather than in. wet.
Then it is that a few loads of solid
dirt in the "chuck holes" as I bey
begin to form will do inestimable
good. At the ends of the bridges
and culverts, where the dirt be
gins to settle away and leaves a
jump-off that means slow-driving
or broken springs a few minutes
work with a shovel now and then
will make every traveler over
the road sing the praises of the
unknown friend who made the
crossing of that particular bridge
or culvert, smooth and safe. A
little attention in keeping the dirt
on lop of the concrete culverts
will mean much longer life for
them, for even concrete needs al
ien t ion to prevent wear.
Road maintenance ought not to
cost the county or precinct so
much, but the will to see that it
is done ought to be stirred up in
the farmers who are on the job
and have the time and means to
easily take the "stitch" in lime.

ARTHUR TROOP FRACTURES
COLLAR BONE IN ACCIDENT
From Tuesday's Dally.
Arthur Troop, who re
south of this city about
miles, was the victim of a
painful accident, last Saturday as
the result of which tie is nursing
a fractured collar-bone. He was
driving along with a load of fod
der and in some manner slipped
and fell off of the load onto the
load and thence into a deep
creek, alighting on his head and
shoulders. with tlie result of
causing the fracture as noted
above. It is really fortunate
however, that the fall did not
have' even more serious results
as the distance he fell was some
eighteen feet. As soon as pos
sible after the accident Mr. Troop
was brought to this city and the
ininred member dressed bv a
surgeon and he was made as
comfortable as possible, although
he will be compelled to take a
rest from his farm .duties for a

From Tuesday's Daiiy.
Last evening James Aull ar
rived home on No. 2 from Caspar,
Wyoming, where lie had been for
the past few months engaged in
bridge work for the Burlington.
James met with a very painful
accident a few days ago that will
force him to take a layoff of a
week or two. He was working
around some timbers, and while
tepping over a large one his
foot came in contact with a large
pike sticking out of one of tlie
boards and the nail penetrated
liis foot clear to the bone. The
men in charge at Caspar wanted
him to go to the hospital with
the injured foot, but he concluded
to come home to have it attended
