The Public Roads.
As the time of' year has arrived
when it is customary to work out the
public roads of thme County, the atten,
tion of the County Coinmissioners is
earnostly requested to this important
matter. If there in one duty of said
officials, more importan t than another,
or mcro important than ail, others, it
is that of' giving due attention to the
working of the public roads. Once, a
long time ago, under the adminmisra.
tion or ono-of the most enorg'atic men
of the County, Col. J. J. Groeham, tbo
fino public.rokdo of Pickons County
elioitel the commendation of overy.
body. It is remembered, however,
that in the potformanco of this ardu
ous duty, by the aforesaid gentleman,
he becumo the object of much person
al abuso, for requiring the faithfuil per
formanco of road daty on tho pal of
41l the road hands tinder his imno
diate jurisdiction, but h sw0rv0d not
from tho.path of duty until ho had
accomplished his purposo of put,
ting the public roads under his con
trol, in tho best possiblo crder for
travelling. And for this faithful per
formnance of duty on his part, as Cuni
misioner, he had the quiet approval
:>f his own conscience and tho hearty
, pproval of the community. But wvo
havo had but few Col. Greshams t3ince
his time. A "lick" and a "promise" is
the p)olicy uow. a-days until, in some
pLortions of the County, the public
roads have become almost imn,passablE
for a vehicl( of ainy kivd. A4 the
prosent CommIiissioners are a now sot
of Imlen, young and onergetic, we trust
thatt a'll entirely new kind of poficy will
bo at oico inaugurated in the impor
tant delrtinent of rond wvorking.
Requiro the hands to put their several
roads in the bctt )ossiblo condition
and have each road inspected af tor be
ing worked, to know that it las been
dono. Tl'o special attention of 1he
Commissioners is called to the dread
ful condition of the public road lead%
ing from 8. . McW hlorter's to Picks
0nsvillo, on the Pondloton road. For
soveral years past tho work on that
road hIs been slightly dono, and, as a
necessary consequenco, it has becomo
worse and worso until it has beecome
almotst impassablo for a loaded toam.
The crossing at the branch at Mc
Whorter's should be bridged, and the
hill on both sidee of the branch should
bo thoroughly worked. There is no
oxcuseo for scarcity of hands, as they
have a fine body of mcin, and can
make a splendid road if requtire'd by
the propor auuthiority. "A word to the
wviso is suftlicient." Let the Comimis
sionecrs see to it.

SALunITY TownshIr, Aug. 4.
Mu. EDIToR : As the election for
fenco or no foznco around the crop~s is
now being discussed. I will try to
give some of my views ini favor of
foncing the cropst I have carefully
studied this subject, and I1 havo con..
eluded it will not do this high up the
eodntr'y, it might do ini the lower part
of the Stato, but here we have rails
aind plenty of timber to make more
when wo nIeedl thoem, and we have a
good range for our stock to run in
and keep fat, otherwise, if they woreI
enclosed in an old sedge pasture, if they
lived, it would require some meal and
other food to keep them, even during
the summer season. We can, in some
time fix our pastures, 'tis true, by
sowing grass seeds, but it takes.tim'o
to prepare our lands for pasturing,
and it will take a groat deal of labor
to get them ready. Now, suppose
we make. a calculation-the time we
loose in moving the fence from around
our farms, and the attention we give
our p)astures be devoted to mak
ing mnanuro to go under our corn,
wheat and other vegetables, it will
pay us a great deal more in the spring
of the year (if we pasture our stock),
we would have to bo fixing our pastures
when we ought to be fixing our crop.
Again suppose we have no place to
fix a pasture only at the back side of
our farm-we want our stock at home
some time, especially the milch cow;
it would be a great deal of trouble to
muzzle the cow to take her home
otherwise, how could we drive her
through the crop. Again, we would
be obliged to have different pastures,
for it wvould not do to turn the cow
and calf together-so the so~m and
substance is, that the expense over,
runs the profit. So we are doing
very well now, and I think we had
better Jet very wecll stand, and let us
try to pay our taxes and get out of
insolvency beforo we expose our crop~s
to the world to make public roads
though thorn. Again, suppose Mr. A.
2I. and C. are all close neighbors?-.
Supposo Mr. A's pigs gets out of the
pasture and gets into Mr. C's potatoo
patoh anid plows them alt up-Mr. C.
gets very angry about Mr. A's pigs,
and Mr. C. privately goos and turns
Mr. A's cow out on Mr. B's crop, which
will cause Mr. B3. t.o got angry also.
Mr. B. wants damages mrade good, so
ho pens A's cows, advertises and sells
losr) 66 we find hat if this law is
carried out it will create rmaliCe, OnVy
and strife between neighbors that
ba,e always before boon noigbbors of
a congenial fooling. So, I say lot
the foncos stand. as they are, and if
possible, put more rails on top; and I
say to the boys of Salubrity Town
phip, rally and spread yourselves, and
meet at Liberty tbo 18th Instant, and
knock it all in the head, t>eonuse if
such a law as that passos in this
County we are ruined, for ever and
etornally. low have we made out
thus far? How did our grandfathers
and our great grandfathore make
out with their crops fenced. I again
sayt,that I am willing to cling to the
old fence law, it has dono for ages
past, and will do for ages to como with
a small exponse. I hope the people
of Salubrity Township will bo of one
mind and come out on the 18th and
vote to fence the crops. There is no
uso of ono raying any more now about
the fenco law. I hopo tho good poo-,
P10 of this County can see for thom,,
solvos the interest of their own w0ll
furo in tho futuro. J. A. II.
A Result of Obstructed Digestion.
Among the hurtful consequences of obstrue
ted digestion, is the impoverishment of the
blood, and since a deteriative condition of the
vital fluid not only produces dangerous organ
ic weakness, but, according to the best medi
cal authorities, sometimes causes asphyxia. it
is apparent that to improve the quality of the
blood by promoting digestion and assimila.
tion, is a wise precaution. Hostetter's Stom
ach Bitters is precisely the remedy for this
purpose, sinco it stimuilat es the gastric j uices,
conquers those bilious and vacuative irregu
larities which interfere with the digestive
processes, promotes assimilation of the food
by the blood, andi purifies as well as enriches
it. The signs of improvement in healtl in
consequence of using the bitters are speedily
apparent in an accession of vigor, a gain in
bodily substance, and a regular and active per
formance of cvery physical function

came so bad that two physicians came to am
putate the limb, though upon consultation
concluded not to do so, as my whole body
was full of scrofula; they deemed it advisable
to cut the sore, which was painful beyond
description, and there was a quart of matt er
run from this one sore.
The physicians all gave mo up to die, and
said they could do no more for ime. both of
my legs were drawn up to my seat, and it wasi
thought if I did get up again I would be a
cripple for life.

and followed on with it. until I had used six,

In conclusion I will add, when I wn en
