The method of taxation for the maintenance of good roads is a great thing, but what a pity that so much of it is transformed to a mud tax. Arguing for good roads with some people is like punching a suspended hollow rubber bal—they offer no re sistance but refuse to show that they have been impressed. Our roads should be put in good shape when the ground is in condi tion for the clay to be well placed, and then every one should consider hitbself a special committee to look after and keep it so. The road drag should be more in evidence than it lias been and should be used every day if necessary to keep the roads from being cut Into ruts and gullies. The time that the drag gives the !>est results is when the crown of the road is soft and yielding. It is then tirat the loaded wagons make ruts in which the water accumulates,and tlie purpose of using tlie drag should be to force the soft earth back into the ruts and the water from the road crown. Water is what ruins our roads and by ali means i* should he kept off Happiest Girl in Lincoln.

TWO MORE KILLINGS. \ocona Vlfhborhooil an<l Wheatley, Scenes of fritue Saturday >izht and Sunday Morning. The torrid July weather seems to germinate crime amongst the negroes, wid every summer brings its long list I of killing and shooting scrapes. I»e *pite tlie tact tliat only a short while ago two negroes paid the penalty of their crimes on the gallows, within ten days of that expiation, two more killings had been recorded for ttie county. The coron >r was called to the Yo cona neighborhood Sunday morning by the report that a negro had been killed there during the night, and upon investigation found that during a drunken brawl at a negro frolic the night before, Jim Chalmers was killed by Louis Harnett, another negro, after a oistol duel in which both ne groes engaged. Harnett made ids escape. s t:daj morning also, news reached city that Get' ie Wl It: y an i •John Washington, residents of Wheat ley township, between whom there had been a longstanding feud, met in front of the post office at Wheatley at s :;o o'clock Sunday morning, both being aTrae i and immediately began lighting.
