A Decatur man left Decatur at 4:46 S u n d a y afternoon, drove to Cerro Gordo and was back home at 6 o'clock. He spent some time at Cerro Gordo. His time on the road may be put at approximately one hour. Two boys in his party carefully counted the automobiles which they met both going going and coming. Here is the count. (Joins, from Decatur city l i m i t s to Cerro Gordo, 231. Returning:, Cerro Gordo to Decatur c i t y limits, 146. Total, 377. 3,770 IN TEN HOURS. At t h a t late per hour In ten hours 3,770 cars would pass over that road on Sunday.Of course that rate would not hold for ten hours but it probably probably would hold for five hours, say from 1 p. in. to 6. But It is also true t h a t it was a pretty busy road for much more t h a n ten hours, say from 6 a. m. t i l ! 10 o'clock at night. That would be sixteen hours. It is also probably true that at no hour between between 10 p. m. and 6 a, m. was that road without traffic. Therefore the total approximated nbove for ten hour.-, may be accepted as somewhere near the real total for t w e n t y - f o u r h o u r s on Sunday. 4000 IN DAY. And t h i s p u t s the t r a f f i c on the road at about 4,000..ears for every plei'.sant Sunday. And the road has not cDnie into its own yet so far as t r a f f i c is concerned. As the intersecting intersecting and side roads get better the t t - a f i i c on the paved road will increase. increase. When the paved road is connected connected up w i t h Springfield and Jacksonville Jacksonville that will bring another tide havo charge of t h e work here. DISTRIBUTE LITERATURE. This committee had w i t h tham Sunday. A. E. Wolf, a representative from the Chicago-district, who assisted assisted in planning the campaign. The p u b l i c schools and parochial schools will assist t h r o u g h the co-operation of S u p e r i n t e n d e n t Richeson and Father J.

Only durable clothing is de- sircu, as it must be made over In many cases.
