broad tiro helps to keep roads in
order, lessens the load to the horses,
and preserves the wagon. In the
earlv periods of this country when
there were practically no roads, the
broad tires were common, and after
nike roads were established the val
ue of a broad tire to the roads was
recognized in the reduction of tolls
to the wagon with a broad tire below
those charged wagons with a nar

For many years-in fact ever since
our food fishes have become scarcer
every year it has been the general
talk that somo nioaus ouuht to be

could bo replenished with fish that
are known to havo inhabited them
years ago, and such other specios as
are adapted to our streams. Our
State board of Fish CoimmHsionir

and, particularly in furnishing brook
trout and black bass, (cam not ex
cepted but by experience not foun
desirable) but other varieties so
much dosirod by our people, such as
Hock Uass, White B.iss. Perch, etc..
