GUIDE-EOARD QUITE USEFUL
Diagrammatic Illustration of District
With Township Sections Indicated
by Different Lines.
The Scientific American, in describ
ing a guide-board invented by W. A.
Fusch of Decatur, 111., says:
This invention is a guide-board
bearing a diagrammatic illustration of
a district with township sections and
roads indicated by differentiated lines,
and having a movable device adapted
to be set in the guide-board e| any
desired point which serves to indicate
the location of said guiciu-board in
the particular district or township de
lineated by the map on its face. The
guide-board has a border on which are
inscribed names of towns and other
locations lying outside the one in
which the guide-board itself is lo
cated, and also the distances of such
towns and locations from points indi
cated on the map proper.
PREPARE ROADS FOR WINTER
Before Ground Freezes Smooth, Drag 1
and Pack Center of Road to Pro
vide Needed Drainage.
See that all drain ditches along the
road are opened before the ground
freezes; then smooth, drag and pack
the center of the road, and you will
have provided for the essential drain
age, without which we cannot expect
to have good highways. All rocks
should be picked out of the track be
fore they freeze to the ground, harass
ing both man and beast when they
pass over them during the winter
months. Low places at bridges and
culverts should be filled and leveled
up to make winter travel more endur
able. Repair holes in bridges, to guard
against serious accidents by some
horse getting his foot fast-perhaps
breaking his leg.
TO MAKE CONCRETE CULVERT
Directions Given for Making Small
Bridge Strong Enough to Stand
Travel of Heavy Teams.
Our borough construction force
builds a very good concrete culvert in
the manner shown in the sketch,
writes James M. Kane in Popular Me
chanics. The sides A are first built,
and the forms removed before the con
crete is completely set. Benchlike
wood forms are then placed at Inter
vals between the sides A and boards
laid on them, then paper spread over
the surface of the boards. The con
crete is then put on top of the paper.
Short pieces of railroad iron are laid
in the concrete to re-enforce it.
After the top has properly set, the
supports are driven out, or broken
down with a long iron rod. The boards
are then easily withdrawn. This cul
vert is strong enough to stand the
travel of heavy teams as well as auto

Miss Markham scarcely tasted the
dainty flipper Freda served, but she
drank every drop of the black cof
fee. Freda gave her mistress many
an anxious side glance as she re
moved the dishes. She set the tray
down on the kitchen table and shook
her head slowly.
"Ah, something's wrong," she
mused. "She ain't been like herself
since she come home from the moun
tains. I'll just wager there's a man
back of all these blue spells. Well,
I wish he'd turn out to be the right
man, for she ought to be married
and took care of."
Freda kept Mis:s Markham's bun
galow immaculate and served whole
some meals, but felt that she ought
to give additional service in lessen
ing her mistress's indifference toward
matrimony. She felt justified in us
ing strategy if it led to her mistress'
happiness. She walked rather noisily
to the door of the living room, which
was lighted only by the blitze from
"Miss Markham, if I'm too bother
some, just say so; but this drizzly
November day has Kept me all shut
in till I've got to thinking again
about something i thought I'd for
"Why, Freda, is it anything I can
1 help you to s?ttle?" Miss Markham's
tone was sympathetic.
"Oh, I knew you'd be ready to
help; you're always doing things for
everybody but yourself."
"Well, that is the right way, Freda.
I'm less important than a great many
people." The short silence which fol
lowed this remark was bluntly broken
"What I wanted to talk to you
about," she said, "was a man I couldn't
seem to forget."
"What! You, too, Freda?" exclaimed
Miss Markham, quite unconscious of
all that her words implied.
"Yes'm; you see it was this way:
He was gardener and I was cook for
the same family. He was a good
lookin' Irishman and a whole year
younger than me. He'd melt his blue
eyes and tell me he'd never liked any
other girl as he did me, but when
I wasn't a bit sure about my feelings
for him how could I be sure about
his for me?" Freda gazed straight
into the fire as she concluded part
one of the plan, and Miss Markham
was leaning out from the big chair
looking hard at her.
"How strange, Freda, that you
should have told me all this tonight."
Then, catching herself, Miss Markham
added, "that is, I mean it is strange
you never mentioned it before."
"Well, you see," Freda answered,
still looking at the fire, "I used to
think I did right, but sometimes now
I wonder if I did."
"What did you do, Freda?"
"I just came away without saying
good-by or letting him know where
I'd gone. I felt mighty smart about
it till I got good and lonesome, and
sometimes I thought he might be lone
some, too. More than once I've
thought"-and here Freda introduced
a heavy sigh-"that having my own
way is not so good for me as learning
to live for other folks and taking care
of a husband and babies would have
Miss Markham laid a sympathetic
hand on Freda's shoulder. The other
hand carried her handkerchief to her
Having finished her story, Freda
hurried out, but she did not go too
far to hear every sound from the liv
ing room. Miss Markham turned on
the light and opened her desk. There
was a rustle of paper, a scratching of
a pen, another rustle of paper, and
immediately Miss Markham, in her
water-proof and her collie by her side,
took a walk in the drizzly darkness
down toward the mail box. When
they came back they had an old
time romp on the veranda. The next
day Miss Markham sang about the
house and brought a cheerful face and
good appetite to her meals.
The morning following was a beau
tiful Indian summer day and she went
for a ride, wearing her khaki suit,
tan boots and soft brown hat. While
she was gone a tall, distinguished
looking stranger came walking up the
hill from the railway station and
asked for her. Freda, who thought
he had some relation to that hurriedly
written note, determined to keep him
waiting until her mistress returned.
He showed no disposition to be manip
ulated by Freda, but questioned her
about Miss Markham's usual riding
route, and announced that he would
walk in the direction that lady was
expected to return. As ne walked
away, Freda decided that she ap
proved of him from his dark, well
shaped head to his well-shod feet,
with their determined way of setting
themselves down. Especially she ap
proved of the fashionable cut of his
He met Miss Markham a short dis
tance away, and in plain view ot the
dining room window where Freda had
stationed herself. Her keen eyes
sparkled as she saw the stranger
take Miss Markham's right hand in
both of his. Miss Markham said little
but smiled much. Presently he lifted
ber from the horse and, arm in arm,
they started toward the house.
"I never had a pardoner for a lover
in my life,' chuckled Freda as she
hurried into the kiiciien, "but I raked
up the r'?ht Rind of a story to make
Miss Markham s love affair grow."
