Such roads u we will be able to
construct will not be of u datable a
character aa those constructed by
the wealthier counties, and latra-atate
travel originating la other portions
of the state whore bettor roods have

den on our people. The wear and

they are sgpectod to stand.
It behooves u. tor every reason,
to get together aad devise some plan,

Counties having large taxable
nations with grant rsqouroae have no
doubt nuteftatly housfttted by the do-
tout of the state bond tssu. They
can raise sufficient tends to construct
their roads with Federal and state
aid. This will out them less than
they would have, paid In taxes to re-
tire a state bond Issue.
Not so'WIth our county. We would
have gotten much more road than
are would have paid for. due to the fact
that our county Is one wltg small
taxable values and we can never raise
• by bond Issue or other means enough
toads to build as much road of the
right kind as we need.
It naturally follows, therefore, that
we will be unable to avail ourselvhs
of federal and state aid. and what
roads we do get we will' have to pay
for altogether out of our own pock-
ets. ' _
