Dead Trees on Public Roads.
Ma. EDITOR: As the road work
ing season is at hand, I would like
to make a suggestion. Ought we
not to have every dead tree cut
down within reach of the road?
For at least two good reasons: 1st
the law requires it. 2nd It is just
like setting a dead-fall on the pub
lic highway to catch and kill. all
passing by. It would be very
wrong .to kill a human in this way,
or even a horse or ox.
If this will not touch the heart
of the overseers and hands,there is
something in connection that will
touch the most tender, cord, i. e.
we would have to pay the damage
thus inflicted if the County should
be sued. It is posible for 20 or
more persois to be killelI within a
vearl. From five to ten thousand
dollars damage per head would go
a little below the bottom of the
heart, and purse too. A jury gave
a family $6,500 for a member kill
edl on the Air Line Ri. R., a few
d.ays ago& Let us remember this.
Some of the gullies andl bridges
aire almost as dangerous as the
trees. T1he scientist tells us if we
cut down the timber we will have
no rain, but I am willing to risk
falling a few (lead ones at least,
ada little brush or limbs cut
from over the roads.
