A party of iivo or six wero fishing

negro. According to tho story, John
Medlin was sitting on tho bank next

Medlin moved ovor closer and -put
his hook at tho saino place Fullor
had his. Fuller cursed Modlin, us
ing tho vilest kind of epithets and
Medlin picked up a clod or tuft of
grass to strike.
lloro is where tho stories disagree.
Medlin says ho raised his hand as if
to hit Fuller, when tho latter, not
hoing over courageous, jumped into
the pond to avoid getting into ft
fight. Ile waded out beyond bis
depth, and oithor couldn't swim or
hoing frightened, lost his senses. At
any rate, ho began to sink, and Med
lin says ho rushed in to savo him, if
possible Fullor. however, went
down before Medlin could get to
him and novor appeared again.
Othello Fullor. the father of the
drowned boy, anya that Medlin de
liberately struck his son on the
hoad, pushed bim into tho water,
and that ho nover oamo up again.
Medlin surrendered to tho sheriff
and was lodged in jail.

To Teach Rode Construction.
A reform, the importance of whioh
is steadily impressing itself moro and
moro upon tho publio mind, is the
demand for prplio roads. The bioy
oles hos hv? u a great faotor hi pro
ducing inls publio sentiment. The
man who rides a w.hoel conies very
quiokly to notice and' to approoiatoa
tho difference botwoon good and
bad roads. After perspiring and
jolting over a bad road, and com
paring tho labor expended with what
would have been required to pedal
tho same distance over a good road,
bo bogins to realize that tho samo
difference is folt by tho horse, and
that good roads would gratoly facili
tate travel and lighton tho burdon
of hauling. A bioyole rider is in
variably a ohampion of good roads.
Gunton's magiziuo oalls attontion
to tho fact that Columbia University
has takon a stop in the right direc
tion by establishing a department
in prnoticol road-making in conneo- .
tion with tho engineering and mo
ohanicnl work of tho university. It
"Soiontifio road-making has rcaohed
a point of such importance, especially
here in thc cast, that tho necessity of ,
adequntoly testing the road materials
available in different looalitios has
suggested tho ostablislunont of do
partmonts devoted to this purpose in
connection with educational institu
tions. Harvard, howover, is tho
only oth'U* university so far that does
work of this sort. It is understood
that students taking tho engineering
course nt Columbia will horooftor
have an opportunity to rocoivo in
struction in praotioal road-making,
which is a linc of eduoution that has
not horotoforo been offered. Crodit
is due, by tho way, to thoofforts that
havo boon mado hy tho organized
wheelmen of thc country in promo
ting tho oauso of good roads. It is
said that thc establishment of this
dopartmont at Columbia was first
suggestod and urged by tho Longue
of American Wheelmen."
If it bo important to hove good
roads, it is plain that it is important
to know how to coustruot thom, and
it is practical and valuable knowl
odgo that will bo imparted by this
branch of instruction. Tho public
is loaming that it is not only impor
tant to know how to build a road,
but that it is wiso to make it os for
os procticoblo a permanent improve
ment. Roods oro being mado with
a viow to their durability, and tho
economical lesson is hoing loarnod
that it is bettor to go to more ox
ponsc and build a good road than
continually to bo working a bad ono.
Build a good road and koop it good
