And heneo I love tho pathway so That leads mo to her love. And oft my heart before me goes To read the love sign of the rose. Thongh fairer bloom for lovers' tryst. To me it seems as fair As if on angers lips had kissed And blessod it, blooming there. For heaven its sweetest pmilo bestows On tho gear love sign of the rose. The pattering of little feet. When shadows blur the light. And rosy twining arms that moet And necklace me at night? These my glad heart enraptured knows At tho dear love sign of the rose. Not far away love's steps shall stray In thorny paths to roam, "While o'er tho meadows of life's May Shine signals sweet of home. When night falls drear, one heart still knows Rest at tho love sign of tho rose. ?Prank L. Stanton in Atlanta Constitution. MIRIAM'S DREAM. "Yon won't really go at this time of tho year, will you 1" "Rather. I'd go in December if Dick were at the end of the journey." "Well, I wonld not cross the Atlantic in the middle of November for a dozen sweethearts.'' Miriam laughed gleefully. Sho and her Dick had been separated for three years, and now ho had fallen into a j good berth at Toronto and had written to lier to decide whether they should both spend their winter in loneliness or whether slie wonld go to him and sot tlo down at once as his wife. Miriam did not hesitate a moment. Sho set asidn the shortest time possible for winding up her affairs in England and arranged to sail in the Sivonian from Liverpool to Halifax. "But you'll have a dreadful overland jonrney after that. It must be a long way to Toronto,'' said her friend Nora. "I don't know how you'll get through all by yourself." "Ah, but I'm net going to. Dick has been sent by his firm to New York on some business, and ho intends to take a berth in the Meldrnm, n coasting steamer, which will bring him to Hali fax about tho samo time that I get there.'' Miriam was in a fever cf joy and was altogether oblivions of stich small mat ters as intense cold, a pitching, rolling ship and battened down hatches. Tho good ship fought gayly through a stormy, ice threatened sea, and at last a morning broke when tho sun shone fair and the waves sank into a com parative calm. Passengers swarmed on deck, congratulating each other on their escape from prison, and the anxious captain sighed with relief to think that tho worst was pver. Ho was upon his bridge, stamping up and down to keep 1 the blood circulating in his feet, when ahead of them he saw u strange speck dancing on tho waves. As ho drew nearer ho found it an ap parently empty boat, and ho sent off one of his boats to tow the stranger to the steamer. When it reached the side, however, the limp form of II sailor was lifted from it. Dnder care and good treatment the blood began to run again through his stiff veins, and he was ablo to tell what had befallen him. But be fore that happened his boat had been landed on deck, and tho name upon it? Melilrum?made known. "How fnnny!" cried Miriam. "A steamer sailing from New York to Hal ifax iB named Meldrnm." "Aye, missie," said a sailor omi nously, "and this is ono of her boats." "But how can it be? How could it have got loose out here?" "If that poor chap lives ho can tell ns that, end no ono else perhaps." After somo timo the sailor's words ' began to beat into Miriam's stupefied brain. She tried to speak to some one standing near, but her tongue would not move, only her knees shook so much that she nearly fell. Her neighbor drew her to a seat. "Is the Meldrum wrecked?" Miriam asked, with tragic eyes. "I do not know, but I hope not. That poor fellow will tell us, if ho lives." That evening it was known that the Meldrum had collided with another vessel in the storm, and that, although all tho boats had been lowered, they had one after another been swamped. The rescued sailor had just jumped into ' one when its rcpes snapped, and he was therefore the only person saved. i The stewardess took the tidings with a cup of tea to Miriam as she lay inert and despairing on her sofa, and she let the woman gossip out her news without uttering a sound. At last tho stewardess went away, and Miriam lay still, not thinking, only suffering. Later she crawled into her bed, where, through the night, visions of Dick, as a boy, as a youth, as a man, rushed through her mind. Sometimes sho saw his face shining through the darkness, but when she clasped him round the neck he was cold as ice and wet with salt water. Then she was out on the upper deck and not alone. By her side stood some one?a huge man, a giant, who seemed to reach to the sky. His clothes changed their color from light to dark, from black to brown. His great body undu lated all the time, and when he put his arm round her he seemed to be sur rounded with a dry,suffocating warmth. Then he pointed a long arm to the northeast, and seemed to slip farther and farther away, though he still stood by her side; the monster lengthened into miles; Miriam followed him with straining eyes, when a flash of light ning lit up the sky and sea. It played for a moment round a distant spot, which the giant was touching, and in that moment she saw a picture which she never forgot. In the little circle of light a boat rock-': ed helplessly upon the waters. Under a sail were crouched some dozen people, trying, by huddling together, to keep the warmth in their bodies. She knew I that Dick was there, and called his name shrilly. There was a sudden, movement in the human heap, a white face peeped ont, and then the vision Mvriftm lay in her berth, the new dawn already lightening the sky, Then feverishly she got np and went on deck, to see nothing but the gray sky and grayer sea, to hear nothing but the throbbing of the engines and the sough of the wind and waves. Breakfast time came, bnt she heeded it not. For hours she stood immovable, gazing to the northeast over the bulwarks. What did that dream of hers meant Was Dick floating somewhere helplessly, with oth er passengers? It was noon when the wind, veering, sent a cloud of smoke over her head end a shower of black smudges upon her hands. With them came a passing sensation of warmth. This slight inci dent awoke some vague memory con nected with her dream. Tho black col umn of smoke, changing at its edges to brown, thinning out until she could see tho gray sky through it, starting ever from hcrside and yet reaching far into the distance, caught her eye. Inspiration followed quickly. The smoke was the giant of the night be fore, and where it pointed lay Dick and his companions! Sight danced into her eyes, hope beat strongly in her heart. She turned a glorified face to tho ship. What could sho dof How save them? She saw a foot surmounted by blue cloth moving methodically on tho deck above, and in a moment flow up^ the stairs leading to tho captain's bridge. The captain turned round sharply at the sound of strango footsteps, and per emptorily ordered her down. Clutching his arm she cried: "Captain I They are out thero, under the line of smoke! A dozen survivors of the Meldrnm are drifting helplessly and nearly dead!" The captain glanced in the direction indicated. How should this frantic young woman have seen what his prac tised eye could not discern? Then ho guessed that she was the person who, they said, had lost her lover in the wreck. "My dear," he cried, patting her hand, "go to your berth and lie down. You are in great trouble." But tho haggard, hopeful eyes stared brightly at him. "For tho love of humanity, captain, uso your glass. You will see them# I know you will." To liumor her he took a careful sur vey of the horizon, upon which the sun was shining. At first he shook his head, then he stood for a long time ex amining the spot under tho thin edge of tho line of smoke. Ho rubbed his glasses well and looked again, then said quietly: ? "Something is there. Sit down in that corner and wait." Tho course of tho steamer was altered slightly and a boat was lowered onco more to gather in the ocean's drift. To his surprise the captain saw that the distant object was really a boat, with out sail or oar. How could the girl have known it ? Then the group of people became visible, all evidently in the last stage of exhaustion, ami he went over to Miriam and told her to look through his glass and seo if her friend were there. Sho took it from his hand with a wild sob and gazed long and steadily at the coming boat, then gave tho glass back in the midst of a passion of weep ing, nodding her head to signify that she had seen Dick. Then she set herself to regain self control by the time the boat came in. When it did, sho was waiting in the hospital for her beloved. For the next 24 hours she shared the duties of nurse with one of the steward esses and saw Dick's eyes open with tho first gleam of consciousness in them. With a contented look at her ho fell asleep, and on the ship's arrival at Hal ifax he with all those who had been saved were well enough to bo moved to more comfortable quarters on shore. The captain made friends with Mir iam during those few hours and learn ed how it was that she knew the boat was afloat. He could hardly believe it, and he could not explain it, but was contented to accept the fact as it stood and to be present at the simple cere mony which made Dick and Miriam man and wife.?Buffalo News. Spring tiredness is due to an impovr ished condition of the blood and is cured by Hood's Sarsaparilla, which enriches the blood. Paris, France, contains 10,000 individ uals who live by begging. It was one of these experiment al al farmers, who ' put green spec tacles on his cow and fed her shav ings. His theory was that it didn't matter what the ^ cow ate so long as she was fed. The questions of digestion and nourishment had not entered into his calculations. It's only a "tenderfoot" farmer that would try such an experiment with a cow. But many a farmer feeds him self regardless of digestion and nutri tion. He might almost as well eat shav ings for all the good he gets out of his food. The result is that the stomach grows " weak," the action of the organs of digestion and nutrition^ are impaired and the man suffers the miseries of dys pepsia and the agonies of nervousness.

And L-c Morkinr out niv taxes on the rood.** The State of New Jersey was one of the pioneers in the guod road movement, tor this reason it may be well to lay be fore our readers Mime of the facts and opinions we find in the fifth annual report of Hon. Henry I. Budd. st.ite road com missioner. The New Jersey law requires the state to pay one-third of the cost of all im proved roads that are constructed, on the approval ot the commissioner. The county pays the other two-thirds. When two-thirds of the property owners along any highway petition to have it improved, and agree to pay one-tenth ot the cost, the improvement will be made, provided the state appropriation for the purpose is sufficient to meet all such demands. In this case all property owners adjoining the highway are assessed one-tenth the cost, and this is a lien against their prop erty the same as an ordinary tax. In six years under this law. 125 miles of improved roads have been made, at an expense to the state of $565,000. Last year about eighty-five miles were im proved by state aid. Experience in the work is teaching im portant lessons in road construction, en abling the people to get more for their money. Formerly the largest part of the expense was in making the foundations. It has been learned that the earth prop erly drained is as good a foundation as can be made. There are soils that requir* a stone road to be eight inches deep, some six inches and some but four inches, and so construction varies. Where the lesser depth is required stone roads are but little more costly than gravel roads, when the latter has to be carted a long distance. In order to preserve a proper surface, after the first two r three inches become worn, it is nee s;tr>' t< 1 recoatit. All the foundation that is r -quired, there fore, is enough to sust ? 1 ?. se two or three inches, In maintaining the surface to prevent wearing and " raveling," it'11- heretofore been tlte custom 01 so n ? >f ie r fids to keep sprinkling e.trt-i 1 .

This surface coating need be only onc-hnlf to one inch deep. By its means, utilizing the ma terials that lie along or near the road bed, the road may be preserved from excessive wear at small expense. As to the width of roadbed, Mr. Budd says: " Although the first cost of a road Is practically in direct proportion to its width, the cost of maintenance and re pairs is governed largely by the amount of traffic. If tile traffic is at all severe, it will be cheaper to maintain a moder ately-wide road than a narrow one, on which, being confined to one track, the traffic will wear more severely than if spread over a wider surfacc. " On many of the roads of this state where the traffic is moving mainlyin one direction at a time, a macadamized or graveled width of eight feet would be amply sufficient. On roads of more im portance, where it is necessary to pro vide for the frequent passing of vehicles, a stoned width of sixfeen feet is neces sary. It is probable, however, that a minimum width of ten or twelve feet wought be better than eight feet, as the traffic would not be so closely confined to one track and the edges of the roadbed would be less likely to be pushed out. Drivers should lie better informed as to the importance of not constantly follow ing one line in using a rood, and should be instructed to drive over all parts to prevent the formation of ruts, which are great destroyers of roads. " We have settled upon the widths of ten, twelve and fourteen feet as ample for the traffic in the country and sixteen feet in the towns as the limit for state aid. Then, if the municipalities through which they pass, or the citizens thereof, decide the whole street shall be covered, they improve the remainder at their own expense." The price of New Jersey stone roads varies from three to five thousand dollars per mile. A gravel road thirty-four miles long costs one thousand four hun dred dollars per mile. In wet places where telford is necessary the cost reaches seventy-three cents a square yard. In the lower part of the state the cost ranges from filty to sixty cents, and in the north ern part where rock is obtained along the line of road and the bed need be only from four to six inches, the cost is from 20 to 45 cents a square yard. The plan of Commissioner Budd is to secure the construction in the first place of continuous lines from important cen ters, instead of detached sections. When in any county numerous petitions are filed with him, he has the power to say which shall be first built. In most In stances he utilizes his-discretion to build those lines that are a continuation of those already made. To Care Coa?llp?tIoa Forever* ^?,.caret* Candy Cziliarilc. 10c or So. " ** c.
