He will Btop suddenly, look carefully I at a wheel and follow the faint lines j of a crack running, perhaps, from the j flange to the centre. Such a wheel is i condemned at once and the car is j shunted off until a new pair of wheels j can be placed under it. H there is e I flat place on a wheel which measures more than two and a half inches across, that wheel must go, too. Then there may le a sharp flange, and that must be looked after. A ' coupling may have faults. A brake ' ' ' 1 ? ? ?"" oil rigging may nave givcu um, am* these things the inspector must note, i He must be an honest man, as j thousands of dollars' -worth of prop- ; erty and many lives might be sacri- j . ficed in case he neglected something, i ' Box-cars doors he looks at carefully. | , They are dangerous things if they are I loose. Many an engineer or fireman ' ' has met hio doom by having the cab : 1 strike a loose car door. It may be : hanging in place in the yard, but ! when it reaches a point where a strong | wind catches it, out it goes, and the I ! passing train strikes it. In such i cases there is a shower of splinters, a i ' broken cab, and it is lucky, indeed, j . if there is no one killed. Engineers j 1 have a dread of loose doors, and are < always glad when a freight train is past them when they are running at ' full speed. Another thing the in- j i spector must watch is the hopper- j ? bottom dump car. If the fastening j i gets loose and lets a load of ore or ' i limestone down on the track while : i the train is in motion it means a bad < wreck.

Good Hichwayii Needed, As the country becomes more thickly settled the importance of good roads is more fully realized. The rapid building up of cities aud large manufacturing towns has drawn so heavily upon many of the country towns that it has created an inequality between the cities and country towns. The latter cannot afford to keep their roads in as good condition as the others. Where there are a few country towns between two large cities or large towns, there is a constant complaint because the towns do not furnish good roads. A large, flourishing town can build good roads without very greatly increasing its taxes, but a small country iown cannot make extensive repairs on its roads without raising taxes so high that they will not only be burdensome to the farmers, but will have the effect of driving out what few men of large means they may have living temporarily with them. It is becoming a very serious question as to what changes are required to secure better roads. That our roads will bo greatly improved during the next decade, there can be no doubt, because the interests of the people demand it. Where the money is to come from to improve the roads in the country towns with a scattered population is a question to be settled. It is certain that if the repairs are to be very extensive, the money to make them must come from outside?but if what money is raised in the country towns was more judiciously expended the roads would be gradually improved. If shaly rock can be found near tho line of a road it can be profitably used in roaci mamng. jlc suouiu ue uruacji ap and pounded down bo cs to make an even and compact roadbed. Under existing circumstances it is difficult to find men who are adapted to the business of road building, because to build a good road in the cheapest and best manner is an art that comparatively few men have learned. It seems highly desirable that the question ot bow to obtain good roads should be taken into careful consideration b> the highest State authorities, and n plan should be adopted which shall a;ive us good public thoroughfares.A.merican Agriculturist. Improvements Under tlio Law ot 1808. The annual report of State Engineer Bond, of New York, has just been filed at Albany. The improvement of highways under th? provisions of the Higbie-Armstrong act of 189S constitutes an important part of the duties of the State Engineer and in one which attracts much public interest. Hie State has appropriated $100,000 in all, with which to pay one-half the cost of such roads as are improved under the provision of the law. This sum is small in proportion to the amounts appropriated by the State? af Massachusetts and New Jersey, bu< with it contracts have been made fot twenty-five miles of improved highways, of which seven miles on four roads have been finished and accepted luring the year. Six and a half miles 3n one road is about finished, but is Qot accepted, and eleven miles or six roads are in progress, these roads being located in Erie, Monroe, Onon- i 3aga, Schaeotady, Oneida, Rensselaer ind Columbia Counties. Surveys lave also been made for 142 miles of roads in fourteen counties, which are sxpected to be improved when provision is made therefore by the Legislature. The highways which have so far been improved have necessarily been comparatively short picces,ranging from one-half mile to six miles in ength. These serve as examples to ;he people in the various localities, with the immediate result that many petitions are received from the counties in which roads have been built. There is a general expectation that the Legislature will make appropriations which will bear some comparison to those made for road work by the neighboring States. The average cost of tho highways improved so far was $7071 a mile, but, svith the new features of construction suggested, the . cost will be between 58000 and $9000 a mile. Even this increased cost will be twenty per cent, less than the cost of similiar roads in Massachusetts. Recommendations will be made to the Legislature to add to the Highway law provision lor 'the maintenance of improved highways by the county officials, and to provide for a State quarry of trap rock, where convicts from Sing Sing Prison can be cmployed in producing crushed stone for highway improvement. Benefit of Good Koatia to Farmers, The argument used on the farmers to favor some measure for good roads in their respective States is the estimated cost of transporting farm products over poor roads. The estimate emanates from the United States Department of Agricultur^and was furnished to Otto Dorner, of Milwaukee, Wis. It is estimated that tho cost per ton of transporting the farm prodnnt.a nf 189.1 wns Si! 09 nc.r ton. This amounted in that year to $940,414,005. In seeking to show the immensity of the charge the sum is compared with the total values of all farm products iu the United Stated in 1890, which were $2,400,179,-154. The average costs of iiauliug one ton one mile was 25 cents. The cost of hauling crops on improved roads iu Europe is (per ton per mile): lu England, 10 cents; France, 10 cents: Germany, GJ cents; Belgium, 9i cents; Italy, 7?. ccnts; Switzerland, a mountainous country, S cents. It is authoritatively staterl that two-thirds of the cost in tho United States of hauling ono year's crop, 3940,414,005. is attributable to bad or inferior roads. Want Convict Labor on Iinadn. At the annual meeting of the Alichigan Division of tho League of American Wheelmen, one of the most important measures was tho adoption of a resolution calling upon the Governor to use the State convicts in the building aud maintenance <3f roads. The Secretary was instructed to have 5C00 petitions to this effect printed and cirDulated ^throughout the State. The good roads movement, is the most important part of tho work of this division, aud it numbers among its ofticero neveral who are experts on road building. The report of the Secretarytreasurer showod the division to b?? la a healthv financial .-.ondition. '".v . . v > : ; CURIOUS FACTS. The first iron steamship was built in 1830.

Several members of the crew of a ! sugar laden ship were afflicted with j blindness in the moonlight and starlight when in the tropics, though they I could see quite clearly as soon as the I sun rose. They attributed it to fumes ! from the sugar. A soft and boneless tail two aud a j quarter inches long, cut from on I j eleven-week child in Elbing, was ' I shown by Dr. Simon, of that town, to | the Berlin Anthropological Society reI cently. Professor Virchow called it ' "a splendid specimen." i A Bear, a Dog; aud a Tragcdr. 1 One of the interesting features of j the grounds surrounding the Soldiers' 1 i Home is the bear pen, just across the [ j track from the main building; and the 1 ! old black animal therein has been ^ watched for hours at a time by the 1 veterans when time hung heavily upon ^ their hands. He is said to be inoffensive and entirely free from a quarrel- I some disposition, and none of the old men would ever have believed that the 1 I bear would harm a kitten or break the 1 ! crust on a meat pie. 1 i They know differently now, how- 1 ! ever. They saw a tragedy not long 1 ! ago which changed their minds and 1 | materially increased their opinions I 1 aboat his bearship. Among the visii tors one afternoon were a woman and a little fellow, and he had one of those cnte little terriers in his arms. He was delighted over the bear, and became so enthusiastic that he dropped his dog. The little pup scented a i bone belonging to the bear, and he ran j between the bars of the cage to grab ; it. The veterans who were looking | saw one swift movement, about as ; rapid as a flash of lightning, and the; heard something. A moment later there was a wail from the child. The I body of the dog lay across the pen, . limp and lifeless, and when it was j fished out of the cage there was hardly j an unbroken bone in the carcass. The | | child was inconsolable, the veterans , j were surprised, and a Itttle wire screen ' has been placed about the base of that pen to keep inquisitive dogs from I committing suicide.?Grand Kapids ; Press.

The Wolverine. The poet Campbell went so far as to i speak of "Erie's bank, where tigers ! creep along," but this way very far fetched. The wolverine, from which \ Michigan has been named, has always j had, however, the reputation of being j a most ferocious creature. These stories are not wholly unfounded, ; although no doubt greatly exaggera ! ted. The wolverine is usually about ' two and a half feet loDg without the tail, which would make a considerably greater length. Its back is somewhat arched, its head is broad and round' ing to form its nose. Its legs ere Bhort and thisk. The fur is a dark brown, nearly black in winter, with a ' light stripe along the upper part ol I each Bide meeting on the back, and another across the forehead. It feedp on small auimals and is very fond of robbing traps. It is classed with the bear family, but in some respects is allied to the weasel tribe. Only a* I bight does it leave its hidinc piano.

They aro more highly prized by many consumers abroad than the ordinarv kinds. The opinion is wide spread that the greening is injurious. The Marennes oyssers are harmless, and the color does not depend upon the presence of a particular pigment. These oysters are very popular ibroad. No trace of copper or iron bas been found in them. The superior flavor of Smyrna fige is ascribed to certain Asiatic insects, which produce a more perfect fertilization of the flavors of the fig-trees ic A.sia Minor than is commonly effected in other countries. The flavor appears to depend upon the number of ripened seeds in the fruit. During the past year the Department of Agriculture has imported some of these insects from Asia into California, and it is hoped that they will multiply there and improve the flavor of American figs. A striking use of the X-rays, is to be made in the case of two sisters who ire joined together in the same manner as the celebrated Siamese twins. These girls were recently discovered in Brazil, and have reached the age oi ten vears. The examination with the X-rays is to bo made with a view to determining whether the bond joining the two bodies can be severed by a mrgical operation. , If the bodies are independent, surgical treatment would be justifiable and possibly successful, jut if there is an actual connection betwoen the two organisms such a jtop, is of course, out of the question. A very few exceptions to the rule that animals live with their backs towards the sky and away from the sarth, are found by a French scientist. The larva of the beautiful floral beetle, whose winged existenco is mosly spent near roses aud other flowsrs, is the best example. This grub is a fat worm that does much damage to plant roots in gardens. It lias three pairs of legs, seemingly designed For use, yet it crceps about grotesquely on its back, pushing itself Forward six inches to a foot a minute by contractile movements of its segments, aided by a brush of hairs.

The Family Towel Supply. , ? Small hand towels for use in th< ! Iverage family are to be recommended. Many housekeepers take great pride in their store of towels, each a yard :ong and three-quarters wide, moreoi less, but this is an imposition 06 the washerwoman unless an elaborate es[ iablisbment is kept up. For the average family, where one, or, at most, , two girls do the work of the house hold, it is obviously unfair to increase the weekly washing in this way. Nc ( towel should be used by anyone more ;lian once, certainly never oy two per- i ions; if the family supply is in the ( jhape of small towels, perhaps twenty Dy twelve inches in dimension, this rule can be enforced without burdening the laundress unduly. As a rule ;hese small towels are apt not to be f Df as good quality as housekeepers like, but any dealer will have them jaade to order for any customer at a trifling increase of cost. The kitchen roller-towel should be ibandoned.and in its place plenty of the small cheap towels provided. It is a good plan to have those intended for kitchen use banded with a certain i 3olor, which will insure their always ) being kept for that service.

Preparations for war in South Africa include the provision of several captive balloons, and the apparatus wherewith to make hydrogen gas to fill them. Each balloon is furnished with eight photographic cameras, pointing in different directions, so that when the pictures are developed and pieced together, the General in command will have at his disposal a complete panorama of the country in which he is operating. This is exnoAfod tn hfl of sneeial value in South Africa, where bush and hills hide much from the observer ou terra firma, and -where ambuscade aud guerilla tactics are the recognized forms of warfare. Military ballooning may be said to be on its trial in the , Transvaal; and it is a matter for regret that it is a system which so much depends for its success on the caprices of the weather.?Chambers's. bkbhii's COUCH SYRUP Cures Croup and Whooping-Cough Unexcelled for Consumptives.

After I saw your advertisement I thought I would try your pills, and hav* nearly used two boxes; been taking two at bedtime and one after breakfast, and they have done me more good than anything else I have used. My trouble has' been with the liver. My skin and eyes were all yellow; I had sleepy, drowsy feelings; felt like a drunken man; pain right above the nave], like as if it was bile on top of the stomach. My bowels were very costive. My mouth and tongue sore most of the time. Appetite fair, but food would not digest, but settle heavy on my stomach, and some few mouthfuls of food come up ; again. I could only eat light food that I digests easily. Please send "Book of Advice." Bespectfully, BEN ZAUGG, Hot Springs, Ark. jDADWAY'S II PILLS Price, 23c. a Bdx. Soil by DrnzjjisU or sent by auiii.
