Thk highway surveyors thronghout the

lnst fall. The planks on the bridge near Ira
Marshall's are laid longthwlso and there aro
two boles ln them, in the wheel trnck, two
Inches wide and extending over two or thrce
of the cross timbers long enough to admlt a
carriage wheel as far as the timbers wlll re
celve it. Hard by the stage road to the
Centre, beyond Mr Edward Moody's, there Is
a precipitoua descent c lieer down f ull a hun
dred feet. A part of thls road Is proteoted by
a sultnblo guard rnil, but for sereral rods it is
pTWSically unguarded. The shyiug of a horae,
auch aa proved fatal to Mr. IIowo in Cabot last
fall, would send vehlcle and ridera down the
fearful descent. The law stlll relleves towna
from liabllity for InjuriDs receired at such
places, but care should bo taken to guard them
just the samo.
