Daily Sun and Semi-Weekly Light: While discussing tlie great benefits to be derived from the building, opening and improving of roads and rendering them passible every day in the year, and the cost of same, it might not be out of place to examine the other side of the proposition, or Roads Taxes." N'o one who has lived in Texas for any length of time will deny the proposition that since our lands have been fgnced and consequently our highways limited to narrow that Texas, and especilly the great portion, has the worst roads in the South; of course, I mean where they have not as yet been drained, dumped and im proved. If it were possible to arrive at the actual cost of the wear and tear of wagons, buggies, cars and vehicles of all kinds, and harness, not to speak of the great injury done to stock, it would stagger imagination. There is not a farmer or owner of any kind of vehicle hut who has paid out a great deal of monay in the way of repairs caused by bad roads in this country. In this you are not considering many other factors, such as the rapidity with which vehicles wear out and new ones have to be bought outright, nor the great inconvenience in getting from place to place, not only in the rainy seasons, but in dry as well, for even in summer time many of our roads become almost impassable on account of wasliouts and bad bridges, culverts, etc. Any road, like a fence, is good in propor tion to its bad places.

We all admit that our present system is a complete failure. Men will not work for is needs no proof and will admit of none. How many road overseers Itave ever done their full duty? Or how many hands have done the same? The county road gangs do what they can. hut to keep up the roads as they should be kei)t would require fifty times the force that we have and after all, on account of the character of our soil and the topography of our county, that system is a downright fail-' tire. The big $4,000 road engine own ed by the county has been standing on the side of the road near Frost for several months and besides they get it anywhere if it i.s cloudy or strikes an ordinary bridge.

So that we are up against the proposl tion and it must be solved as a matter of absolute and prime necessity and as a matter of self-defense. Flllis, Tarrant, Collin, Hill, Harris and Bexar counties have solved the problem and we are forced to do the same. I am reliably informed that you cap scarcely find a man in either of these progressive counties who for any sum of money, would go back to old conditions. No county has, or can. or ever will progress without passable highw'ays.

The great sounded the keynote back in 1805 when he recom mended that Congress build with fed eral funds, the great Cumberland highw'ays. The ('aezars, before the birth of our Savior, built splendid public highways throughout the Ital ian empire and a part of the great still stands as a silent and dumb monument to the public spirit of the dark ages. The great Napoleon built splendid highways throughout vineclad France and whenever a city or country was conquer ed by him, he at once went diligently to work laying out and building high ways and good roads throughout the conqtiered domains. Long before our Savior came the. ancients in the dark ages built splendid roads and highways throughout the holy land, iio to the north and middle west and you will find evidences of the thrift and public enter prise of those great people.

Our people now, by special enactment of our legislature, have the power and opportunity to better our condition. Will they do it? We will E. O. CALL. STECHER TO HOUSTON.

Johnson. the Unthinking Consider Photography But as a Handmaid of THE ART of the photographer joins the science of the laboratory with sentiment in the heart, ppi- ducing that which makes universal picture with a meaning. Photography preserves for us the youth of our children. It jogs a fading memory of days gone by and brings vividly before us loveti faces out of the past. It holds for us imperishably the friendly greetings of those who have Kone ahead, acts as a standard bearer for Dan Cupid, and assuages the pain of absence.

The smile of the child, the shy confession of a girl beloved, the eyes of a husband or the heart of a wife live, unmarred by time, only through the magic of lens and plate. In this, the age of commerce, gold will purchase most that the heart holds dear; but not everything. It is a thought worth YOUR FRIENDS CAN BUY ANYTHING YOU CAN GIVE THEM PHOTOGRAPH. STUDIO N.

Many of these traders are collecting old copper cash, tlie Chinese, coins which have a hole in the center and are carried on strings, and are melting the coins down and selling the copjier at a hl.g profiL Traffic In tlie Chinese copper eash is going on in many parts of Cliina, regardless of tlie central government's regulations forbidding the exportation of rash. Seventy thousand pieces of copper (ash were recently seized by Ctiinese officials on a train Changcliun in Central Manchuria.

In Peking and the more important commercial centers on the railways in China, cash is used only by the Chinese. The rate of exchange varies greatly in different places. Ordinari ly ten cash are worth one copper cent. The cent Is a coin without a hole in it, and the ratio of the cent values to tlie Mexican dollar Is at about ono hundred and tlilrty- 11 ve to one. Consequently one Mexican dollar will one thousand three hundred and fifty copper cash in the larger centers.
