What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Congressman William Sulser of New York delivered the following speech in the house of reprTa the. June 9, 18TO. Affrellffilne `thsepesier. he said: •-14.• try districts, and congested popu- lated cities. where the poor are destined to become poorer. Good roads mean more cultivated farms and cheaper food products for the toilers in the towns; bad roads mean poor transportation, lack of communication, high prices for the necessaries of life, the loss of untold millions of wealth, and idle workmen seeking employment. Good roads will help those who cultivate the soil and feed the mut- emiltsbaterer aids the pre - t _ -Ann LAMM-of our coon- Ndiris idg-ttstresinrossrealfli`1712A' One of the greatest and most important conventions ever held in this country will be the Third National Good Roads Congress, which has been called by the Na- tional Good Roads association to meet at Niagara Falle,N. Y., July 28, 29 and 80, 1910. The appoint- ment of delegates is invited by the officials of ;every state, county and city in the United States, and by every agricultural, automobile, commercial, educational, good roads, industrial, labor, traneport- ation and woman's organization in tch..nusgber as each may deter- mine. For years, Mr. Speaker, I have been an earnest advocate of postal savings,' parcels posts, and good road building. They are sure to come, and I shall briefly discuss some of their advantages. Good roads mean progress and prosper- ity, a benefit to the people elm live in. the cities, an advantage to the people who live in the country. and it wiLl help every monition in our vast domain, Good roads, like good streets. make habitation along them most desirable; they enhance the value of farm lands, facilitate transportation, and add untold wealth to the prodeeers and consumers of the country; they are the milestones marking the ad - ranee of civilization; they econo-! ruize time, give labor a lift, and! make millions in money; they save wear and tear and worry and waste; they beautify the country -bring it in touch with the city; they aid the social and the religious and the educational and the industrial progress of the people; they make . better homes and happier hearth - sides; they are the avenues of trade, the highways of commerce, the mail routes of information, and the agencies of speedy communi- cation; they mean the economical transportation of marketable prod- ucts -the maximum burden at the minimum cost; they are the liga- ments that bind the country to- gether in thrift and industry and intelligence and patriotism; they promote social intercourse, pre- vent intellectual stagnation, and increase the happiness and the pros- perity of our producing messes; they contribute to the glory of the ntry, give empityynrent to our idle workmen, distribute the nec- essaries of life -the products of the fields and the forests and the fitetories-enconrage energy and husbandry, inculcate love for our scenic wonders,and , make mankind better and broader and greater and grander. The plain people of the land are familiar with Vie truths of history. They know the past. They realize that often the difference between good roads and had roads is the difference between profit and loss. Good roads have a money value far beyond our ordinary concep- tion. Bad roads constitute our greatest drawback to internal de- velopment and material progress. Good roads mean prosperout farmers; bad roads mean aban- doned farms, sparsely settled Conn - our greatness and benefit all the people. We cannot destroy our farms without final decaY. They are today the heart of our national life and the chiefeource of our ma- terial greatness. Tear down every edefice in our cities and labor will rebuild them, but abandon the farms and our cities will disappear forever. One of the crying needs in this country, especiaily in the south and west, is good roads. The es- tablishment of good roads would in a great measure solve the ques- tion of the high price of food and the increasing cost of living. By reducing the cost of transporta- tion it would enable the farmer to market his produce at a lower price and a larger profit - a -- same time. It would bring com- munities closer together and in touch with the centers of popula- tion, thereby facilitating the com- merce of ideas as well as of mate- rial products. When the rigriienlaursi praiseu tion alone of the United States for the past eleven years totals $70,- o00.000.000, a sum to stagger the immagination, and it cost more to take this product from the farm to the railway station than from such station to the American nnd European marketa. and when the saving in cost of moving this prod- uct of ngriculture over good high ways instead of had would have built a million miles of good roads, the incalculable waste of bad roads in this country is shown to be of such enormous proportions as to demand immediate reformation and the wisest and best statesmanship; but great us is the loss to trans- portation, mercantile, industrial and farming interests. incompara- bly greater is the, material loss to the women and children and the social life, a matter as important as civilization itself. The truth of the declaration of Charles Sumner fifty years ago. that \the two greatest forces for the advance- ment of civilization are the school- master and good roads,\ is empha- sized by the experiehce of inter- vening years and points to the wisdom of a union of the educa- tional, commercial, transportation. and industrial interest' of our country in aggressive action for permanent good roads.

A well known advertising expert responding to the toast \Sartori- al Progress\ at the banquet of the recent convention of the Maori' National association, spoke some - 'viva as follows: \I am glad that you clothiers who advertise nowadays print pie-- tures of men's and boys' fashions. Thus you smarten op the country and tend to abolish the dreadful custom of cutting down dad'e suit to boys' size. I remember how, in the distant past, my little broth- er rushedwhimpering into the -sits. ting room one night. \What is the matter?\ I asked sympathetically. \Oh he murmured, \pa's had his beard shaved off, and now 1 guess I've got to weer those old red whiskers!\ - ppincott'a.

Dr. Knowles stated today that there were ire clinical cases and further \ that the diseemo was determined beyoud peradventure by means of the mallein test. The owner of the animals objected to their destruction and secured an injunction, which will be argued on August 5. Mr. Poe, however, oonsented to the slaughter of one of the animals and the autopsy in- dicated the existence of the di, - ease. The tet wits made by the state bacteriologist. Another ma mete was rent to an eastern hae. tairiologiet as well, but upon which no report lies been made. -Daily rd. JOIS last week the Democrat made mention of the fact that the Drake and Swartz mining property had been bonded for 11195.000, but did not state the names of the parties. The property is situated is short distance west of Dixon snd two _Tilessrgd half from the Northern Pacific. It eas taken tinder lease and bond by the Henry Elling es- tate of NlitOison county. Horace Elling and Henry Punkey were over from Virginia ('ity and com- pleted the deal, which was made through Messrs. riunInp and Rose of Dixon. It is the intention - M - ina on a sufficient force within a week to demonstrate the value of the claims before the expiration of four months. The lessees are con- servative mining men and, coin- ing from one of the oldest mining counties in the state. their opin- ions are worth something. This limper is plowed to note that such men are getting interested in the mineral resources of Sanders county. -Sanders Co. Democrat, Bozeman. July 8. --CIA in steel armor and heavily armed.

Ross was seen by an officer early in the day, end alien he approached Ross covered him with the revolver. Inasmuch as the deputy sheriff was in swim- ming and unernied he was unable to do anything and Ross backed away. Evidently he thought the sheriff wits about to arrest him.
