Federal Aid to Good Roads.
Senator lloko 8mlth of Georgia is
sponsor for a now bill for fedoral aid
to good roads, tho distinctive feature
ot-which Is to hcjp in road improve
ment generally rathor than the build
ing of new nntlonal highways. Tho
bill provides that thq secretary of
agriculture co-opersto with state offi
cials in "the construction nnd maln
tonanco of poet roads; that tho
amount of money which may bo ex
pended on bohalf of tho United States
for that purposo In any fiscal year"
shall not exceed $2,000,000.

movement such a measure mny count
on' strong support, and yot it Is sure
to oncountor serious opposition on
tho ground that It may servo aa tho
opening wedge for never-ending ap
propriations by eongross. A similar
proposition by Congressman Shackle
ford of Missouri had passed tho house
and was defeated In tho senate at tho
last session. It Is apt to bo urged
with renewed -vigor as th good roads
propaganda has gained new Impetus
in the national highway project since
then. It Is being argued that as tho
government has given ita moral sup
port to tho good roads movement, to

a thing in Florida. The real intent
ot the law Is aimed tho other way.
It is said to be the closing of mis-
n schools conducted for negroes by
whlto people. Evidently Florida, un.
like Georgia and some of tho pro

for the education of the negro, means

Here Is a situation that will vitally

agencies that arc sending their teach

OMAHA, Nov. 2S.-TO the Editor ot The
Beer Every well regulated family- must
have -Its laws and rulen ot government,
and thes must be upheld either by per.
suasion 6r by force, and either the father
or tho mother, or both jointly, must gov
ern, and neither should interfero with
the authority of the other. A child In
open rebellion against the lawa of the
family stands In the same relation to
Its parents as the criminal to the Judge,
and such rebellion must be punished, for
rebellion Is contagious and If not put
down with a high hand It spreads and
plunges the family Into the whirlpools of
anarchy. Before a child attains the use
of reason It must be compelled to obey
through fear as those "cltlicm who never
make a proper use of their reason must
be made to submit to the state laws by
being threatened, and If necessary,
severely punished, When a child begins
to reason concerning right and wrong
acts, It must not be allowed to imbibe
notions of right and wrong which arc
peculiar, extraordinary or different from
those held by the parents, for "a house
divided against Itself cannot stand," and
where there are two standards of right
and wrong In a family there will ba war
In the air continually.
The government of a family should be
autocratic, and the parent should de
mand obedience and enforce this demand
by kindness If possible, and when kind
ness falls to make the proper Impression,
the whip, or some other form of pun
ishment should be applied In order to
teach the child to obey. A nation or a
family may adopt some unjust laws; a
parent, a teacher or a judge may err In
their decisions, yet the poorest form of
government and tho most unreasonable
rules are better than no government, and
To say that a parent should uso no
other means with a child than persuasion
Is equal to saying that a Judgo should
discharge all violators of the law with
a word of good advice. A rule or a law
tliat provides no penalty tor Its trans
gression Is worthless, and a command
that can be disobeyed without suffering
any punishment la not a command, hut
a request not a law, but only a recom
Whether an act committed by a child
Is punishable or not depends mainly upon
whether or not it hits disobeyed a com
mand knowingly, and It It has, It ouht
to be punished reasonably for Us own
good and for tho good ot the family and
the state. Without laws and penalties
there can be neither peace nor safety in
the world, and Blackstone defines law as
a rule of action, dictated by a superior,
Which the Inferior Is bound to obey."
