JilTliNT CI..AY ROADS.
The utilization of burnt clays as a
road material is mentioned in the last
Missouri Geological Uepoit as a subject
that should be' fully discussed. Some of
the railroads are already using burnt
clay for ballast in preference to rock,
sand r gravel, with good results, so
that the extension of the use of this
material for roadways is in reality be
yon'd the experimental stage. Profes
sor Wheeler says in his report on clays
that while it is not so good as tough
rock fr th- heavy traffic of cities, it
would be d :si ruble for country roads,
where the teams are few and the loads
light. It can be prepared wherever the
clay is, and often by the roadside, and
as the heaviest roads are those in claysj
sous tnese may be made to furnish the
material for their own improvement.
PEN PICTURE OF SETH LOW.

ent, who delights to pose as a mental
fop and a moral exquisite, and who was
simply "born rich." Here is Lewis' cli
jnax: "Politically, he is an Ishmael
and an ingrate, and his hand has ever
been against his party, while his lips
craved favors from it. Lastly, mental
ly, phyrically and politically, he is as
near like G rover Cleveland as the Lord
will let him be, and if you want him
for your mayor, take him. B'or myself,
