History and Good Roads.
History reveals that the most
enlightened and successful nations
of ancient times recognized the
value of good roads. It is said
that it was the good roads system
ef the Romans that eoabled their em-
pire to broaden in to the then
greatest nation on earth, and it
is said that but for its system of
good roads it never could have
been held together as long as it
had, and yet from a commercial
and industrial standpoint, the
Romans did not have as much
need of good roads as the farmers
of Oklahoma, for in those days
there was no great exchange in
farm and commercial products as
there is today. Yet the Romans
spent vast sums out of the public
treasury in constructing 'good
roads while we modern folks are
trying to supply our greater need
for good roads by private dena
tions of work and subscriptions
of money. But it matters not
how we get taem,' the fact that
we finally awoke to the fact that
good roads are an economic ne-
cessity is the r..ost important
phase of the proposition, for when
the American people make up
their minds they need a thing
they generally devise ways and
means for procuring it.
Wear Carnation On Mother's
Oklahoma City, April, 19 —
Governor Williams has issued a
proclamation asking that the peo-
ple of the state observe Sunday,
May 9, as Mother's day, and
suggests that as many as can
wear a white carnation in memory
of mother. Referring to the oc-
cassion, the proclamation says:
"At this season of the year,
when the birds sing their sweetest
notes, wh;n hilltop, valley and
plain are profuse with the bloom
of nature, we approach this sa-
cred day set apart in recogntion
of our mothers. With reverence
we come to pay our tribute of
love and honor to the memory of
that sweetest friend of man, a
tower of strength and inspiration
in time of every need, a ray of
light in every shadow, and a
sweet benediction in every joy or
v.ctory, a divine relationship, or-
dained and blessed by our Heav-
Now that the days are becom-
ing longer and the early garden
stuff is on, we are waiting for
some of the brethren to start the
discussion of which is the best
kind for bait.
Too Many Women Drift.
Although many women would
indignantly deny the statement,
too many today might be classed
as nothing more or less than
"drifters" on the sea of life.
For they have no plan, no pur-
pose, no guiding principle beyond
the gr at goal of Pleasure. There
is a certain thrill, a certain glow
of anticipation connected with
drifting, too, though it be ephem-
eral and short-lived, which is very
interesting and delightful while
it lasts. The pity is that it lasts
for such a short time -and then
come the rocks and undercurrents
and the storms and the care and
There are hundreds of differ-
ent ways of drifting. One small
boat may be drifting in a very
safe and pleasant haven, where no
possibility of mishap could occur.
Another may look calm and lovely
and that yet hold treacherous
currents and w,ives undern ath.
A third may be drifting in the
open sea. but with rudder and
oars ready at a moment's notice to
combat any sudden emergency.
And the unfortunate fourth may be
drifting because there is no other
alternative, for the rudder is brok-
en and the oars gone; and God
help that poor lonely boat out
there in the open !
A life without a purpose never
can be a happy one. For, after
all, the enthusiasms of life are
what bring happiness to us—
provided, of course, that the en-
thusiasms tend toward the right
direction. Yet the saving clause
is unnecessary, for no wrongly
directed enthusiam more than
a brief space. For then it ceases
to bj an enthusiasm and becomes
merely a failing and a handicap.
Try This Puzzle.
Here is a puzzle that comes
from an exchange in the "Show
me" state; Take the number of
your iiving brothers, double the
amount, and add to it three
multiply by five, add to it the
number of your living sisters,
multiply the result by ten, add
the number of brothers, and sub-
tract 150 from the result. The
right hand figure will be the
deaths, the middle the number of
living sisters and the left will
shiow the number of living broth-
ers. Try it and see.
When a man is in love he should
be excused from all his obligations.
There is no doubt but that the
Lord will forgive all the lies he
tells while in love.
We Should Smile.
The thing that goes the farthest
toward making life worth while,
That costs the least and does the
most, is just a pleasant smile.
The smile that bubbles from the
heart that loves its fellowmen
Will drive away the cloud of gloom
and coax the sun again.
It s full of worth and goodness,
too, with manly kindness blent;
It s worth a million dollars and it
doesn't cost a cent.
There is no room for sadness when
we see a cheery smile.
It always has the same good look-
it's never out of style ;
It nerves us on to try again when
failure makes us blue.
Such dimples of encouragement
are good for me and you.
So smile awjy; folks understand
by what a smile is meant,
It's worth a million dollars and it
deesn't cost a cent.
"Now, boys." said the school-
master, "suppose in a family
there are five children, and the
mother has only four potatoes to
divide among them. She wants to
give each child an equal share.
What is she to do?" Silence
reigned in the room. Everybody
was calculate diligently. Fi-
nally one little boy put up his
hand. "Well, Johny, ^hat would
you do? asked the teacher.
"Mash the potatoes, sir."
