We have received the following circular
which we publish because of the several
weighty facts it presents with reference to
state road improvement in the past:
Permanent State Road Association,
HiADQCARTERS AGITATION COMMITTEE,
DANVILLE, III., UC. lOOO.
Tn tha K (11 tor:
Hoping that you noticed favorably the
successful inauguration last Thursday at
Springfield of the Permanent Road as
sociation, its executive committee has in
structed me to ask your favorable co-opera
tion in this, certainly the most essential, re
form now demanded of the approaching
ceneral assembly. The pross of the coun
try has stood god-father to every reform
heretofore secured. Could it now be en
gaged in a better cause than that of secur
ing permanent roads throughout tho length
and breadth of our glorious state!
Since the adoption of the constitution of
1848 the taxpayers have charged themselves
directly on account of roads with the ex
penditure of $13,200,000; have givon as a
bonus to railroads 122.000,000; have ex
pended on internal improvements f 21,000,.
000. For this outUyuf f 50,200,000 wo
have not to-day one hundred miles of per
manent state roads.
Add to this the yearly outlay of every
township aud the total reaches up to stag
gering millions. Sangamon county ex
pending this year $51,227, Edgar county
$22,643, Vermilion county $33,138, Adams
county $48,806, McLau lounty 53,000
and like extravagant suras for every coun
ty in the state. And uuder the present
law every dollar of this money (except the
few hundred expended by cities) is thrown
The machinery of the present law is also
wholly dishonest. It costs a grand total ot
$850,000 per annum to superintend the ex
penditure of the township assessments.
' This association respectfully asks you to
investigate the workings of tho prcsopt
law in your county and publish (lis results,
torwa ding the same to this address so that
by general understanding we rany all ar
rive at a just bill for submission to the
next general assembly. We must have per
manent state roads sometime, Why not
begin the work now when our people are
prosperous and happy and the state free
Awaiting a favorable reply, I am, sir,
The association in whose name tho above
circular is issued, is composed oi some of
the prominent men from all pain of the
state, and will, we doubt not, do some good.
The officers and committees appointed
at its organization are as follows:

Whore to Put a Kiss.
An eateerued young friend of the Phil
ndelphia Times "asks a funuy question.
Ho wants to know where ho shall put
his kisses. Probably any num! or of
people, without much thought, would
rush rashly forward - to tell him all
about it and consider tho conundrum a
perfectly easy ono. The problem, how
evor, is really very difficult, aud anyone
who has had experience enough to know
what kissing is will shrink from quick
or direct advice on the subject
As a matter of course tho young man
who has kisses to give away will give
them to his girl if she is willing; if she
isn't willing but that is so improbable
that it would be a waste of timo to 6ay
anything about it. If a young man has
no girl of his own ho will natnrally
such is tho waywardness of human na
turefind some one else's girl or girls,
aud to some a good many girls are not
auy too much of a good thing. Thoy
say it isn't such a bad thing sornetlraos
when you find you hare- kissed the
wrong girl, If there can be any wrong
girl in a matter like that.
But the trouble ou the young man's
mind seems to be regarding the proper
place for the kiss. He does not feel
certain whether he should kiss his girl
on the lips, or the forehead, or theuhin,
or the cheek, or the hand. There are
(some young men who would rogard the
poorest of all these ohances as the ex
treme of bliss, But suoh young men
lack the snap and enterprise which a
wide-awake and desirable girl rather
likes. The young man who hesitates
and trifles with uncertaintv about the
proper site upon which to build his kiss
will los" the dolight of kissing. If there
were a v; se fate be would deserve it.
There is. however, no worso fate.
Kiting the hand is a very neat bnt
colorloss sort of compliment. It is un
satisfactory to both parties, they say.
We are also reliably informed that kiss
ing the forehead or the chin is a cold
sort of thing and notlargolv indulged in
by people ot good tasto. The check, if
not too hnrd Fa understood to be very
fair kissing ground but good Judges
have very generally agreed upon the
lips as oiieriDg superior iudueeniont.
It his mouth is not too large or his
girl's mouth too small, or if hTs giiTa
mouth is not too large and histoontuall,
perhaps tho young man who wants the
Times' advice hail better stick to the
lips. If there is anything sweet in a
kiss and doubtless there is he will
find it there.
The American Girl Abroad
We were calling on "The Fuchsia"
the other day, says the London Truth,
and, apropos of gowns fitting, she told
us that in Now York some celebrated
milliner has entire lay figures or dum
mies which by means of innumerable
springs or wires, are made to expand
or contract until they become tho idoal
ized figure of the lady to be fitted.
Plense note tho word "idealized," or it
sometimes means a groat dBl. The
good people who coustruotod Hercules
from the size and shape of his foot per
formed a simple feat as oompared with
the miracle constantly worked (accord
ing to "The Fuchsia'1) by this milliner,
who erects tho dress , upon one of those
dummies, developing stop by step each
fold and point and turn. Fancy a dum
my that could be expanded to the dimen
sions of a Fanny Davenport, or con
tracted to tho sizo of a Nollle Farron!
I know sevcral-glrls who have wire
dress-stands of the exact size of their
own figures, aud precisely of their own
measurements in every renpoct. They
are delightful things, sinco they obviate
the necessity for the excessively tiring
process of trying on, and they are of
immense assistance loono's maid. "The
Fuohsla" complains bitterly of the
necessity of having a chaperon "in
town," as she calls it, when she gons
out "Girls can do as they like in Ameri
ca," she sayn, aud I inwardly wondered
why lu the world so mauyof them came
so constautly to London and Paris,
when their own country is so much
more to thoir tasto. "If I must have n
sheepdog," aald "The Fuchsia." I'll
take care to have her muzzled. Mind,
girls, that you look out a picturesque
ruin for me who won't be ugly enough
to scare nwoy my friends, nor band,
some enough to distract my admirers."
Do you know anyone who would suit,
my doarP It is rumored that "Tho Fu
chsia" means to buy a duko. She says
she thought there were fur more dukos
aud earls In England than there really
are. I sunposu that is why there are
always suoh swarms of them In Ameri
can novels and plnys.

mnn, who has been lately employed at
Soule's barber shop, uniior the' Mas
s:soit house, hns recently fallen heir to
a property in the Fatherland amounting
to .7o,000 to $100,000. Herman's fath
er was a major iu tho German army,
and he, whon quiUi young, ontorod the
army, being placed in tiio hospital de
partment, his eyesight preventing him
from doing field duty. At the age of 18
he deserted, and helped by an uncle,
with whom ho was a great favorite, to
reach this country, where, liko so many
other young foreigners, ho expected to
pick up money with very little exertion
on his part, but was sadly disappoiutd.
His unolo gave him cnueiderable money
when he left Germany, but he quickly
went through this, ami was thrown up
on his owo'ivsourecs. Unable to speak
our language, although fairly u ell edu
cated, he was in a bad way. an I tiually
entered a barber shop in No York,
where he learned tho art of manipulat
ing the razor aud shears. Fro'n New
York he drifted to Chicago, and thoo
back to Roclientor nud this city, where
he w as employed at first by Under und
moco then by Soule. By the death of
his father a fcw years ago h3 fell boir to
a portion of his property, amounting to
about $20,000, which ho wan imablo to
got through complications which would
nrino through tho Gorman Government
and his desertion from the army. About
a month ago his uncle, a wealthy bach
elor, whose favorite ho was, and who
helped him to reach this country, died,
kvtving him his property. He h is now
brought about a settlement uith tho
