Dead Trees on Public Roads.
MR. EDITOR: As the road work
ing season is at hand, I would like
to make a suggestion. Ought we
not to have every (lead tree cut
down within reach of the road?
For at least two good reasons: 1stI
the law requires it. 2nd It is just
like setting a dead-fall on the pub
lie 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
soniething in connection that will
toich the most tender cord, i. e.
we would have to pay the damage
thus inflicted if the County should
be sued. It is possible for 20 or
more persons to be kille:1 within a
year. From five to ten thousand
dollars damage per head would go I
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 fewv
dlays agoA Let us remember this.
Some of the gullies andl bridges
are almost as dangerous as the
trees. The scientist tells us if we
cut dlown the timber we will have
no rain, but I am willing to risk
falling:', few dleadi ones at least,
and a little brush or limbs cut
from over the roads.
