ably a mistake to have used tho mac
adam typo of surfacing. Vltxlried pav
Ink- brick, or possibly blocks of rtsji
Ite or ome other hard material,
would have moro nearly suited the
coudlUons. In th latter caae tho field
stones have served their purpose ad
rairaniy. though some of the road
oould and probably would have been
built of gravel had that material been
obtainable at a reasonablo cost.
It was formerly hold that tho mac
adam surface should bo restored an
nually to Its original thickness. Doubt
" praguce was excellent, 10
far as the condition of the roads was
concerned, but such annual restoration
Is costly. The prcsant practice la to
kep the surface always smooth, to
nit any small holes or Incident rut
which may appear, but to do no re
surfacing; until the stonei bare worn

Thank God, tome of ui have, and

mother. Not a woman of the per
iod, enameled and painted, with her
great chiznon, her curls and buttle,
vhose white jeweled fingers have
never felt the clatp of baby fingers,
but a dear, old faihloncd tweet-volc-ed
mother, with eyet in which the
love light thone, and brown hair
threaded with silver, smooth upon
her faded cheek. Thote dear hands
worn with toil gently guided our
tottering stept in childhood and
smoothed our pillow in ticknett;
even reaching out to ut in yearning
tenderness, when bcr sweet spirit
was baptised in tbe pearly spray of
the river. Blessed is the name of
an old fashioned mother. It floatt
to Us now like the beautiful perfume
of tome woodland blossom. Tne
m-Jttc of other blotimi may be lost,
but tbe entrancing memory of hecs
wid echo in our toult forever. Oth
er placet will fado away and be

thall glorify our own. When in the
fitful pause of busy life our feet
wander back to the ol 1 threshold,
standing once more in the low, quaint
room, as hallowed by her presence,
how the feeling of childish
innocence and dependence comet
over ut, and we kneel down in the
sunshine streaming through the wes
tern window jutt where, long years
ago, we knelt by our mother't knee,
lisping "Our Father.1' How many

hours, that mother't words, her
faith and prayers, saved ut from

over oetween her and us, but they
have not bidden from our, sight the
glory of her pure, unselfish love.
