Here are some interesting figures, compiled 'at the request of the Register by Lea Noflzger, county engineer, shov/Ing-I'he cost .of maintaining the various types- of public road here in Allen county. The figurpa are for the cobt per i mile per year, not inc'udin^ shouV dtrs or ditches. ! Concrete. $ 122.50 Bituminouu macadam 78.00 Gravei liG3.0« Earth ^ 210:00 The special signlficuhce of these •flgur*? would seem to lie | In the wide difference between tlie cost of maintaining concrete and earth ruada, and the narrow difference between the cost of maintaining Kruvel and earth roads. In the first case a difference of $187.50 a 7uiie, and in 1 the second a difference nf only |47 a mile. "IJiur Weeps once; but cheap AveepH iill tiie time." There never was a case to wMch this qld say^ iug .applies with greater force and ucturacy than in the mactar of roadk ^he concrete roaijs cost the most in the beginning'^and so ."Uear" Weeps once. But the dirt roads cost every tii^ it rains, so "Cheap" weeps all the tto4, or kt least a lot of the time. * 'M And there ia this big diiferc&|Ce that' never must be lost /Sight of: AVhile the concrete roads j cost a lot of money to start, wltb, tlte small amount of money spent in. inu'ntainin^. them is virtually negligible because they are gond roads in all weather; whereas while the dirt roads are cheap to begin witli, their upkeep is heavy anct m spite , ^)f all the money spent' on them lijcy remain dirt roads just the . Bame! ' I ; The difference is a good deal like the difference between paying rent and buying your house throngh the ; Building and Loan. You may sRve a few dollars of actual puUay by paying rent. But you can pay rent for a thousand years and stiil not own your home, wh^r^as it you .pay a few dollars more through the Building and lioan in the course of ten years'jou will own your house. ] ; The cost of maintaining a gravel road is niore, nearly that ol maintaining a dirt road than'one would suspect. The . big difference • is that a good and,;'well maintained gravel road is an' all-weather road while a dirt roadjgoes; but ot commission as- soon as it r^ins. ' 'But the heayy cost of maintaining dirt roads is only the beginning of what they actually do cost. That is .xine of the facts that should be always borne in;jnind.'' It is the tax they levy upon the people who tre forced to travel them .that Is the prin'cipai cost. Everi.when they are In as perfect condition as It is possible for dirt roads-to be if is . more expensive, as careful Govefn- nient tests l^ve shown, both in gasoline and tires, to use- them .than it is to use concrete roads, . but when they are either qluddy or rough it is/easily twice as costly tp drive over them ps if is to drive ttver a good hard'i'oad. It is a fallacy, therefore, to sticlr to' dirt rioads on the .theopy that they are cheap.

I" It is gratifying to learn that ^as soon as our War Department heard of the tragedy it sent a telegram to Comuidnder De Pinedo offering him. the use of an American army 'plan^ with all the equipment. and pbrsouiel necessary to fulfill that part of the Comnmndeij's program which has been laid out for the United'states. That was a courteous and gracious thing to do and every American will be glad: the offer was made. But why j would it not be a fine and Xiiting thing, when Congress meets :again, to make au appropriation of a sufficient sum to rebuild the big Italian plane, or constrtlct a duplicate of it, and present it jto the Government of Italy? Of i ourse there - is no legal re-spons bilily resting upon the Governmeritipf the Unitttl Slates in the matter. ' But it was! through the carelessness of one of our citizens that this great machine was; destroyed while ;it was in our waters and while its aviator was our guast. Would lit not be a friendly and gracious ai.t to assui^e reHponsJbility and make the lossj good? ' SOFT BEDS rOR MULES. \ Softer beds for' Army mules, as authorized just now by the Wir Departmjent, will pay for themselves by lopping off a pound',of grain a'day fi;om the animals' justly famed appetites, according ' l|o mule experts. ' : It was found in experiments, on which the War Department bases Its 'new forage ration that mules not only eat less wliun given warm and comfortable bedding but Ihey actually..grow fatter. 'Und^r the new ration each mule will receive eight' pounds of grdi 1 a day and four pounds of stran- for bedding. Instead of nine poundjs of grain and three dnd a third df straw. On field service, ^he ney grain allowance will he ten pound So that's that! , I T:" NEWSNOtES OF MILDRED Blake Takes (?harK» of (lenient Plant In Lima, Peru. lObltuarr, D. Vt'. Kuxton. IN THE DAY'S XEW.S. Lord Denbigh, who is on his wa^ ccross the Atlantic for a pleasure lOur of America, is the holder oif an ancient and i historic English til tie,.the first' Earl of Denbigh havj- ing "been killed while fighting for Charles I. in 1622. The present Earl, w-ho is the ninth of his line Was born in 1859 and was onc^ lord in waiting to Queen Victoriii and to Kin^ Edward VII. For lhirt>| years, since he succeeded to^ his title in 1892, he has been colonel commandant of the famous Hon-^ oiirable Artillery Company of Lon4 don. During the 'same period he has been president of the Koman{ Catholic Association in England •In ,1923, his first wife having died iio;ne years previous, the Earl -of Denbigh was married to Miss Kathleen Emmet, danghter: of the late iir. Thomas Addis £hnmet of New lyiork, who died in 1919, leaving an [estate of more than 11,000,000. In China the joke Is decidedly] on the Russiains. The Soviet made! a grand gesture three or fburj years ago of withdrawing all claims to,the right of extraterritoriality in China, as a result of which no diploniutie Immunity attaches to Russiai| property there 'Taking advantage, of which situa-j tion Marshal Chang Tso Lin, in control at Peking, ordered a raid upon certain Russian buildings,; arrested and took to prison thirty or forty Russian and Chinese Reds, gathered Sn bunillcH ot red flags, seven car loads of Red propaganda leafletig, tliousands of Kuomintang flags, a machine gun, a trench mqrfar, a lot of rifles and ar quantity of ammunition. "Those arrested will be tried and dealt with according to their deserts," announced Marshal Chang, which means doubtless that by this time they have all been shot or beheaded. An^ Russia cannot complain^ tie- cause by her own act she left her subjects in China to the tender mercies of the Chinese. TWO GOOD JiPORTS. Two of the closest friends among Kansas newspaper publishers rare­ lyever agree on any public question. They are C. F. Scott, ot the iola Register, and William Allen •White, of the Emporia Gazette,! Mr. jScott is a stand-pattJer and ': Mr. White a progressive. Mr. Scott, in i'eliglon, is Jnclined jto be a fnn- AamentaIi8t ,>Mr. White a rank mod- tmist. : MrJ Scott is against the primary, Mr. White is the daddy of it. Their latest disagreement is on the subject of (Mexico. Mr. Scott feels that the govemitient should be more exacting in Its protection -of Americans who have invested in Mexico. Mr. White is sure American business men and other Interests are scheming to In­ volve this country in war with that country to gain selfish ends. Kt. Scott Tribune. But both these newspaper, men are good sport.s; both are "square shooters"; each recognizes that the,other lias as good right to differ with hint as he has to differ \Vith the otiier. And that is what makes good Americans. That Is what makes this Itepublic of ours strong and abiding. And it is this Republic of ours—this democracy, which makes big, strong characters like Charley !^cott and Bill White. —LeaVeri worth Times.
