Every road ih a county leads to
the county seat at some time in
the course of a citizen's lifetime,
and for many citizens the condi-
tion exists on several, occasions
during the course of each year.
For this reason, ns well as for sev-
eral others, The Farmer endorses
the idea of issuing bonds and
building two county roads, one
running directly from line to line
of the county north and south,
through Stillwater, and another
in like manner east and west.
We can never have good roads in
Payne county without raising a
lump sum of money and building
them outright. The ordinary in-
come for road purposes is little
more than sufficient to keep good
roads in repair, and it is a a fact
that we have very little good road
in the county, but with two such
county highways properly built,
lateral roads leading into them
can be established and maintained
with the ordinary revenue availa-
ble for that purpose. A system
of lateral roads radiating front
such highways can lie made to re-
sult in. good roajds for every part
of the county within a very lew
Lincoln county voted $150,000
road bonds recently, Pawnee coun-
ty votes on $175,600 bond issue,
which appears certain to carry,
on Aug. 10- Payne county farm-
ers need good roads as badly as do
the people of these counties, and
we of the towns cannot afford to
hang back on a proposition calcu-
lated more especially for their
This good roads proposition
must be tackled ere long, and
right, now is the time to lie doing
go (I deeds. The public highways
nre growing worse year by year
under our present frittering and
futile system of road work, and
we cannot ignore the existing con-
dition much longer. Neighbor-
ing counties are up and doing,
anil we call upon the Payne coun-
ty commissioners to take this
proposition up and give the people
a chance to pass on it.
