Very strange to relate, the peach crop has only been frozen once since Christmas. This is a very rare happening for this time of year.
The roads do not seem to b improved much since the Good Roads Meeting. If the committees appointed at that meeting are supposed to work on the roads, why don't they get busy. Now is the time they need fixing, because after the spring opens up right and dried up the mud, they will fix themselves.
There is some talk of standing up a tar an turpentine factory on Tar-Kiln Ridge. It is to be hoped that this infant industry will succeed.

Those Good Roads. Yes, we hear a great deal about them, but we have not seen any of them in the past ten years. We have been talking to quite a number of the farmers and other tax payers in this end of the county on the subject, but they are so narrow minded and such old fogies that we can't get them to see a good thing when it is offered to them. Now as Elk District pays about the same amount of tax that the three eastern districts pay, we have been trying to show our people what a grand thing it would be to make the county the units of taxation and build a few "new-fangled" automobile roads from Keyser out into the eastern position of our county. True these old fogies on the mountain would never see those "Good Roads", for they have no road that they could travel to get there, but if they want to be a large-hearted and benevolent people, this should not deter them from supporting this good cause, but we can't get them to see it in that light. They say they are not looking for a commission of twelve men to go over the road and tell them they are in bad order - nor do they want an "expert engineer" to go over the roads to tell them the grades - their teamsters are pretty well acquainted with that without further expense and trouble and every man that knows as much about grading as an old cow would know, knows that all our main roads are built on the best grades that can be had without making the distance and the expense of building both too great. What the taxpayers throughout all the country portion of the county want so far as we can learn, and they are the people who use the road - is to have just such roads as we had twenty-five years ago.
All the older of our citizens know, that from thirty years down to less than twenty years ago, the roads of Mineral County were the envy of all the eastern portion of the state, and the border counties of other states.
You ask, how did such a condition of road come about? Well, let me tell you; at that time we had a county court, composed of good business men - men who had driven teams on our roads and knew what a road ought to be, just such men as the writer knows a majority of our present court to be. They divided the county into sections and appointed a competent man to take charge of each section and furnished him machinery and tools to work with, and authorized him to hire horses and to do the work. The court then gave each man his commission. It was short and to the point - "put the roads in good order". Then we got a new court and several men outside of the court (who, by the way wanted a feed from the public crib) felt themselves called upon to assist in running things, decided to sell the roads out to the lowest bidder, hence, the present condition of our roads.
we might be more minute in the description of how our roads disappeared, but we forbear. These old fogies in this end of the county say, "give us such roads as Bill Blackburn, Tom Roderick, Zack Arnold and other foremen gave us and they will be satisfied. They would then ask our county court to drive the heavy traction engines off our roads by a license tax and require ever one who wishes to run an automobile in the county to file a bond making them responsible for all damages done by frightened teams caused by their traps. This would give the men who build the roads an opportunity to go upon them with their teams to haul the product of their farms to market and take their families to church on the Sabbath."
