Pino is on tho ground which will bo used to convey tho water from the States within tho next flvo years without counting tho $50,000,000 bond Issue proposed to construct the main roads of Pennsylvania. This enormous sum Is greater than the expenditures for that purpose in any decade ln the past, and will probably exceed tho sums to be devoted to similar uso ln tho greater part of Europe in the same space of time. Rapid growth of means of quick transportation by means of railroads and lnter-urban electric systems has stimulated tho demand for better roads brought about by tho Increase of automobile traffic and opening of direct markets for farm produce in the cities and towns. To this has been added tho Insistence upon eli mination of tho profits of the middle man in foodstuffs, which Is prevalent ln every part of tho country and which is affording farmers a way to obtain fair prices for produce by di rect sale. In many of tho agricul tural sections of New York, New Jer sey and Ohio the return to tho farm er has been Increased through the construction of good roads which have enabled him to reach market towns and forwarding stations on railroads and electric Hues, which with tho roads of ten years ago would have been an impossibility. iew York, which has spent $40,- 000,000 in development of one of the best road systems in the world, Is about to ask for a new bond Issue of $50,000,000 to rebuild highways in rural sections and to connect more county towns. State bond Issues are being agitated in other States, and Pennsylvania will this fall elect members of the legislature who will vote finally upon submitting to tho people In 1913, an amendment to the constitution to permit a $50, 000,000 bond Issue for building im proved roads. This sum, which is to be spread over a period of years in order to obtain the best results and hold down the carrying charges, will put .Pennsylvania In the front rank of progressive commonwealths, a position which the condition of Its roads now prevents, to tho great loss of her period. Pennsylvania has developed a road building system which has attracted national attention and Is now work ing out its maintenance problems. If the S50.000.000 bond tssuin In vnt- pdTevery county town in, the State r1?in be -connected 'by means of fine roads, farmers will be enabled to reach markets with ease, and thous ands of automobile tourists, who every summer leave a stream of dol lars behind them, will be attracted from other states Into picturesque Pennsylvania.

Court officials of Sch uylkill have been surprised at the falling off ln the number of licenses for tho sale of liquor ln this county and the Board of Judges Instructed tho clerk of the Court of Quarter Sessions to mako an Investigation and his report to the Judges shows sorao or the most Interesting facts about tho liquor traffic that havo ever been made public In this state. His figures show that of tho 1,200 saloons in Schuylkill only 30 per cent, aro making money. Tho other 70 per cent, are seriously thinking of giving up tho business. Of those who are trying to get out of busi ness 40 per cent, blame the decline to profits to the moving picture theatres. They say that where tho average worklngman used to patronize tho bar he now takes his nickel and goes along with his family to tho motion picture theatres and that in this way many pennies that were spent for liquor havo found, their way in mis country lastnct to a now source, ami tno erection or moro play houses Indicates that the day of tho saloon ln these regions Is doom ed as long as tho moving pictures last.
