'SyfSI I f !f t '-'J-'w\ ••/// r- ■ IF YOU think you can do better by having your clothes,made to measure than we'll do it for you here in clothes ready made, you've got a chance to think again. Hart, Schaffner & Marx use better fabrics than you find in most clothes; put better linings, trimmings, tailoring into them than you get in most clothes.

With or without spring trip This will not be much trouble and only the expense of postage, and may earn good returns for you in adding to your knowl- edge of Cultivators and Planters, of which there are a considerable variety, and they are not all of them "The Best." POST YOURSELF on the DIFFERENCE. and so get rid of doubt, and become an enthusiastic booster for the Emerson Stan- dard Implements.

Home Course In Road Making III.—Method of Financing Improved Roads. By LOGAN WALLER PAGE. Director Office of Public Roads, United States Department of Agr.culture. Copyright by American Press Asso- ciation. 191- 1T is m mutter of sound business policy to require that nil road tuxes be paid In cash In the past the collection of labor for road building has been compulsory and the collection of money voluntary, but experience has shown that this system must be reversed. A tax which is levied for the purpose of developing resources hitherto undeveloped, which development would add to the people's wealth, cannot be considered a burden in any respect. It is an investment. As to the methods of raising: money for road building purposes, there are two systems which have been employ- ed in different parts of the country, both with considerable success. One plan may be called the "pay as you go" system. Under this plan a small an nunl tax is levied, the proceeds of which may be used partly for...

The Home Circle Revenge is the only debt whioh it is wrong to pay. It is nice to be handsome but it is a good deal handsomer to be nice. To make home happy is an art —an art a good many people have either lost or never found. Success does not crown the ef- fort of a youth who stands around the street corners smoking ciga- rettes and expectorating on the sidewalks. Let us take time to speak sweet, foolish words to those we love. By-and-by, when they can no longer hear us, our fool- ishness will seem more wise than our best wisdom. The street corners is the be6t place in the world for teaching vice, profligacy and crime nearly all the bad language and idle, vicious habits of boys are taught on the stree*- at late hours of the night. No one wants an impertinent swaggering, cigarette smoking boy about an office, or as a olerk, bookkeeper or stenographer. Girls do not acquire the detesta- ble habits and are, therefore, get- ting the places. Boys, as well as girls, should be taught to hel...
