The importance of facilities for
both external and iuterual commuu
icalion to national and state wealth
and prosperity arc universally ac
knowledged. The same principle ap
plies to towns and cities. Other things
being equal, the town or city which
is best provided in these respects w ill
outstrip its neighliors who are not,
and the portion of that town which
has the best streets and pavements
with surpass in busincs and social ad
vantages as will all other portions.
This is seen, and recognized by all live
business men, and the chief problem
will all real estate men aud merchants
as well, Is to secure the accessibility
of their property and business. In
Cape (iirardcau we have a vivid pic
ture of the truth of the foregoing.
Yet, strange as it may seem, we have
just as striking an example of ignor
ing the whole principle. In a town
of over five thousand people mid oi
magnificent possibilities, besides the
l?vee there are only three streets
with more than an occasional pave-
ni -lit, ami until recently only five of
them had solid road-beds. Those
having these.thougli widely separated,
have almost monopolized values aud
buildings and arc the only tolerably
welMiuilt portions of the town: and
those which have sidewalks have de
cidedly utstriped all others. It
anyone will watch Uroadway when a
crowd surges along it. he will observe
that the bulk of the crowd crosses
and re-crosses the street. If he will
observe further he will see that this
crossing is to avoid patches of rough
paviug'to be foil ml too often on the
sidewalk. Doubtless those who do
business on the neglected part have
wondered at the reason of their losses
in trade, a wise expenditure of a
small portiou of which would have
removed the cause and turned a por
tion at least ot the tide to them.
A marked illustration of the truth
presented is shown in the case ot
Themis street and the portion of
l.orimier street West of the court
house. This neighborhood possesses
every natural element necessary to
make it far the in -a desirable resi
lience location ill 1 lie city. It is high,
yet level, of ea-y access to every por
tion and especially to the business
portion of the tow n, vet so secluded
that bu-iness ran never cm-roach up
on it. II it had good sidewalks to
Main street iin;liina could hinder il
from soon becoming decidedly the
foremost place for dwellings. Yet
with the exception of a few hand
some residences erected by gentlemen
who see its possibilities it gives little
evidence of its attractive future. Let
the city order good sidewalks aud
the necessary grading and let each
property holder heartily co-operate in
making a good sidewalk immediately
and it needs no prophet to predict
that each will be more than repaid
the c!t . lv the assessable values and
the o (tiers of property both iu sub
stantial comfort and iu the financial
appreciation of their r;-al estate. J
Ixt the policy be followed through
out the t 'ape. Ia-i brick or equiva
lent walks be ordered where the
grade will admit and they arc needed.1
a:ii! plank jes elsewhere, :(n-l it is
ea.-y to see that the substantial com
fort and business prosperity of the
place will be advanced.

The First Flection of Washington

active factor. In 17-17 Washington
was one of the three candidates to
represent Frederick county, Ya- in

he had recently achieved the distinc

ItradJock's army from aunihilatioii
Washington was not able to overcome
the revengeful opposition of one
Lindley. whose licence to keep nil or
iiuary had been opposed by the
voting Colonel. Washington was
badly 1 eaten, receiving only 4" votes
to the 271 and 270 votes cast for his
opponents. Xevcrthcless, the next
vear Wa-liiwrton again essayed to
serve his countrymen at ltichmond.
The election came oil July 24, and
Washington got 310 votes, or 70 more
than were cast for the next highest
candidate. It is related that the
future Father of his Country iu this
campaigu had to foot a bill of election
expenses ot 1 '... the chief items of
which were "a hogshead and a barrel

A novel way of . promoting the
fertilization of laud by the utilization
of its weed growth is adopted iu a
new laud cleaning machine. The
principle of the machine is to root up
all the weeds, scrub, cte and pass
them at once through a double blast
lire by means of a traveling engine.
The frame is mounted on four travel
ing wheels aud carries a small fleam
engine ou the right of which is a
blower. On its left is a brick hearth,
fitted iu au iron frame, which forms
a fire retainer. The Weeds are con
ducted to the tire by a gradual incline
aud after they have passed through
a lire retainer, which is kept at an in
tense heal by the blast of the blower,
they arc deposited on the soil. The
engine, with which it is claimed from
four to eight acres a day, can be
cleaned, can be had from six to eight
horse-power, and, with the macniue.
requires two men when in operation.

The newspapers which a week
aL" were worrying about MrKiuh y
and the President, f earful that the
latter was displeased because some
of .McKiuIey's friends persisted in
voting for him at Minneapolis, can
now breathe a sigh of relief. Mc-
Kinley did uot shirk the responsibility
of his position as chairmaii ol Ihe
committee to notify President 1 Inn-i
on of his nomination. He was it
the head ot the committee when it
cutcted the While House; he was the
first to take the President's hand, and
he did deliver the speech just as other
chairmen of such committees had
done iu the past. The president was
as gracious to McKiulcy as he was to
Chairman Estcc four years ago, and
even took occasion to refer to the
McKiulcy bill as the greatest aid to
him iu this coming campaign.

uot even Serjetary Foster, who was
reported to be diiisted with Ohio,

In municipal bonds. I is plan is this:
He has divided his bonds into three
eqnal parts, after providing for his wife,
and put them into three separate boxes
at the safe deposit vaults; the keys ho
has put into envelopes marked for each
one of his Bons, to be delivered to them
after his death. For the daughter bo
has deposited with a trust company
certain sect: cities which will yield her
one hundred dollars per month as long
as she lives, the principal to revert to
the sons equally, share and share alike,
at her death. On his manufacturing
and mercantile interests he has like
wise arranged a very clever scheme.
Be Las given outright to his thrco tons
all the mercantile and manufacturing
property, sliarj and share aliko, but
they have in tnm executed to him a
lease of the sr.tnc daring his life for a

Ti:r; servant girls mostly the Swedish
ones, of Chicago, have formed a union,
the object of which is to reiro their
verges. They say that during the
wrld's fair" times they are going tc
have ten dollars a week or nothing.
Already the rcrvsnt girls of Chicago are
mistresses of the situation. Even the
ni'-.t i;tnoraiit mil incompetent scorn to
look at anything less than f' ur diJlars
a week. And ai the demand for serv
ants largely exceeds the supply, they
have thiuRS their own way.
Tnrnn h a fr.iit grower In Kentucky
who noticed that in three out of five
years his bcr.t apples and peaches were
killed by March fn st. After trying va
rious experiments he hit npon the idea
v.t digging a circular trench around the
roots of each tree, filling it with pound
ed snow anil ice and then coverieff up
with a thick stratum of clny. The
budding was thus prolonged until
April, when nil dargerof frost was past.

' Chance Discoveries.
It Is a curious f set that some of the
very greatest of human achievements
ha vo been ly chance. Many amonj the
most important discoveries In the his
tory of mankind, says Century, have
been made by men who were not seek
ing the great truth they found. Science
is the result not only of study, but of
precious accidents; and this is true of
the deed3 told of in history. It is an
intervstlnj study in itself the influ
ence which happy blunders and unin
tended happenings have had npon civ
ilization. In exploration accident has
played its Important part as in inven
tion. Some of the most valuable ex
plorations have been made by men who
had no more idea of beinir explorers
than they had of inventing a railroad
to the moon, end it ia a striking fact
that the first inland exploration of
America and the two most wonderful
journeys in it were not only accidents,
bat the crowning misfortunes and dis
appointments of the men who bad hoped
tor very cui-ereai wings.
