GOOD ROADS BY RAH
TRAINLOAO' OF EXPERTS ON EDUCATIONAL
TOUR.
third Train That Baa Been Sent Out
by the National Association?Sooth
to Be Tanftht to Build Hlghwayi
Scientifically.
A train of twelve cars, known as
the "Good Roads Special," left Washington
on the .Dues of the Southern
railway early In November to stop at
ten or twelve of the chief cities reached
by the system and aid In organizing
good roads associations and at the
same time give a practical liiustrauuu
of modern roadmaklng. The tour will
end Jan. 1.
The train carried a full equipment
of roadmaklng machinery and a party
of eighteen persons, all skilled In tho
manufacture of good dirt and macadam
roads. It Is the third such train
to be organized through the efforts of
the National Good Roads association,
une having been sent along the route
Df the Illinois Central from April to
July and a second having traversed the
jistrict between Chicago and Buffalo
along the routes of the Lake Shore
route and the New York Central. Everywhere
the meetings have been widely
attended and have produced permanent
organizations determined to
better the country roads of the section
concerned.
Mr. Martin Dodge, director of the office
of public road inquiries in the agricultural
department, and M. O. Eldrldge,
his assistant, with Mr. W. H.
Moore, president of the National Good
Roads association, are in charge of the
"Good Roads Special" Under their direction
fourteen read experts, Mr. It
W. Richardson, secretary of the national
association, and several clerks
svlll undertake to organize In each of
the cities visited a permanent good
roads association. To this eud they
will confer with the mayor and city

that a suitable ball shall bo hired and
Dbtain the use of ten or twelve teams,
as many meu and a sufficient supply
of crushed stone to construct a length
of good road as a sample.
When the train arrives, the engineer!
will begin at once to build about a
mile of dirt road with the teams, men
and materials furnished by the locality.
They will then surface or macadamize
as much of that road as their
time will permit When the practicability
of the movement has been thus
manifested, the mayor and commercial
organizations will unite in a call for a
public meeting to organize an association.
President Moore of the National
Good Roads association says of the
project:
"The south can have good roads If It
will, and the sooner the citizens get together
and work along some well organized
and practical line these results
will be reached the quicker. There Is
nothing that will do more to Increase
the value of virgin lands and advance
the development of the rural districts
than well constructed public roads.
The Improvement of the road system
will have a wonderful effect upon stimulating
the settlement of people on
farms, and as these settlements are being
made so will the value of the land
Increase.
"Wherever a city or town Is found
possessing well made roadways leading
therefrom you will And the business
of that point Is In a prosperous
condition. Therefore the citizens of
every town In the south will be promoting
their owfi Interests If they glvs
this movement their moral and If necessary
financial support
"It Is hoped that every state, county,
city and town officer will give this subject
of better roads serious consideration
and then take the matter In hand
Immediately and show his constituents
that the movement for better roads
will receive bis utmost consideration
and utmost co-operation.
"It is universally decided that good
roads are what we want. In order to
secure them we must pull together,
working systematically and on practical
lines. This grand tour, planned by
the Southern Railway company, Is a
olo-nol tnv ni>Hnn Tf the KtateS visit
ed are not alive to this and do not avail
themselves of the opportunity to secure
Information rendered by the good roada
special train, no one will be at fault
except the citizens of the states <n
which the exhibits are made."
Grades of Roadi.
The grade Is the most important factor
to be considered In the location of
roads. The smoother the road surface
the less the grade should be. Whether
the road be constructed of earth, stona
or gravel, steep grades should alwaya
be avoided If possible. They become
covered at times with coatings of lea
or slippery soil, making them very difficult
to ascend with loaded vehicles, aa
well as dangerous to descend. They
allow water to rush down at such a
rate as to wash great gaps alongside
or to carry the surfacing material
away. As the grade Increases In steepness
either the load has to be diminished
in proportion or more horses 01
power anacneu.

BIRAM TILLMAN TUSTEN. I
Panies His Eightieth Mile P*it 9
Along Life'* W?y. 1
"Cold December gave him birth,
Ttie moQlb of loe and snow and mirth."
On December 10, 1907. Mr. H. T. Tosten, of
Abbeville, h. C., celebrated bis eightieth
birthday. In mind and body be still enjoys
life, possessing a competency of ibis world's
goods. He has still with him tbaxrlfe of his
youth, whom be married more than fifty |
3 ears ago. In 18&J he married Miss Ann Davis,
and to them were born several children,
three of whom survive, namely : Mr. Walter
D. Tosten of New York; Mrs. Qary, wife of
Associate Justice Eugene B. Gary, and Mrs.
Bradley, wife of Mr. W. W. Bradley, one of
the owners of the Press and Banner.
Mr. Tusten's father, James Harrlman Tusten,
came from Gosben, New York, In 1820
and his people were ot the first settlers of the
State. His great-grandfather, Col. Ben Tus
ten, was a member of the Colonial Congress.
He also did servloe as a soldier, having had
charge at one time of all the Colonial foroes
from Albany to Jersey. Col. Ben Tusten, Jr.,
grandfather of Mr. H. T. Tosten. was a physician
and was the firs to Introduce vaccination
for smallpox In the United States. He
suffered many neavy fines for what was then
thought to be malpractice.
An Interesting story is related of the death
of Col. Ben Tosten, Jr. A noted Indian chief,
Brandt, whose father was a white man, stirred
up the Indians aboat Goshen to Insurrection.
The Indians in great numbers were devastating
the oountry about Gosben. The
white people organised for the purpose of
nrniAAiinn. And wise heads advised that they
were too few in numbers toadvanoeon the
Indians. Some hot beads advised immediate
purault, bat Col. Tosten urged tbe men to
wait until tbelr loroes could Be strengthened.
One oi tbe speakers made use of tbe expression,
"Let tbe cowards stay at borne."
Wben Col. Tuaten found that his people
would not follow bis advice, he aald, "If they
will not go with me I will go with them."
About forty miles from the settlement the little
party was aorrounded In a ravine and every
man waa pat to death exoept tbe Are
eaier who advised pursuit. Col. Ben Tusten
bad established a kind of hospital between
two large rocks In the field?and there, administering
to tbe wounded and dying be was
blmsell massacred. A beautiful marble shaft
waa erected to tbe memory of Col. Ben Tuaten
In tbe atreeta of Uosben.
Mr. Tuaten among kith and the people of
tbe town, reckoned by yeara la ths oldeat
man in the city of hia adoption. He waa
born near Lowndeavllle, but In early ohlldbood
be oame with hia parents to the olty
which baa known blm for tbree-tuartera of a
century. As a child be became one of ua, and
during all the changing years, and with all _
tbelr changing toenes, be has been identified
with tbe people in tbe home of his adoption. ,
Mr. Tuaten from bis youth up to this time J
baa been temperate in his bablte of living, 1
and until be gave up tbe business of sliver
smith he was ever an active and an untiring
worker, whose efforts were attended with varying
fortunes. Before tbe war be bad aoqulred
a nice property, which was swept
away by tbe reauiu or me war, ana since ?
1 tben be baa accumulated enough of this
f world's goods to keep tbe wolf from tbe door CI
and to provide for himself and bia wife all ,
tbe needed oomforu tbat old age and tbe Infirmities
of years might require. P?
2 Mr. Tusten has always been of a cheerful er
and sunsblney disposition. Discouraged at fl
f nothing, be always looked forward hopefully
and cheerfully. The darkness and tbe gloom sti
tbat at times overshadowed, were never so pi
dense that be did not see tbe silver lining or
- the sun beyond tbe clouds. Of Mr. Tusten it '
may be said that be never took life seriously, tta
ITbe fact that hla great-graudparenta, Adam nf
at-d Eve, contrary to Instructions, ate of the
choicest fruit of their well tended orobard, ac
never disturbed tbe equanimity of hlsperen- t?
nlal cheerfulness. His researches In Theology
never gave his face tbe appearanoe of that
-x solemnity which usually characterises tbe
J ultra pious.
Mr. TuRten's digestion was never disturbed
on account of anxiety about tbe religious cant
) tbat so often characterises tbe faoe of tbe solemn
ass who tries to raise the veil to peer into
? tbe seorets of the future life. But cheerful*
u ness, and thankfulness for tbe good tblngs In
this world enabled him to spread sunshine
not only into bis own heart, but gave blm in
" tbe pleasure of imparling tbe same to others, ki
Although tbe frosts of many winters have d<
whitened tbe locks of bis orown, yet be Is to- m
* day so good humored and so obeerful tbat It tt
would seem tbat tbe heart within was more p<
tbe heart of youth than tbe heart of blm who
bad lived tbe years of an octogenarian. fa
He frequently comes down town, and H in
would item tbat be baa yet in store many ol
more years of life. Only a day or two ago be it
was oompllmented on bis apparent good e?
health, when bis reply was something like
this: "Ob,yes; lam In fairly good bealtb,
but I have reoelved about all tbat 1> coming _
to me." f
Mr. Tasten does not pretend to do any work
1 now. He Is resting in the Indian summer of
' life, reading books or newspapers, and enjoy*

Any Soul to Any Body.*
Bo we must part, my body, $ou and X,
Who're spent so many pleasant yean
together!
TIs sorry work to lose your company.
Who clove to me so close, whate'er ths
weather,
Vrom winter unto winter, wet or dry.
But you have reached the limit of your
tether.
And I must journey on my way alone
And leave you quietly beneath a stona.
They say that you are altogether bad!
(Forgive me; 'tis not my experience)
And think me very wicked to be sad
At leaving you, a clod, a prison, whenos
To get quite free I should be very glad.
Perhaps I may be so some few days
hence, - . -i
But now, methlnks, 'twere graceless not
to spend
A tear or two on my departing friend.
Now our long partnership Is near com
And I look back upon Its history*
I greatly (ear I have not always treated
You with the honesty you showed to
me, / / ' / ^
And Z must own that you have oft defeated
Unworthy oefeemes by your sinoerlty'
And by a blush or stammering tongue
have tried
To make me think again before I lied.
Tie true you're not so handsome as. you
were,
But that's not your fault, and Is partly
mine.
Too might have lasted longer with mora
care
And still looked something Ilka your
first design.
And even now, with all your wear and
tear,
'Tls pitiful to think I must resign
You to the friendless grave, the patient
prey \
Of all the hungry legions of decay.
But you must stay, dear body, and I go,
And I was once so very proud of you I
You made my mother's eyes to overflow
When first she saw you, wonderful and
new.
And now, with all your faults; 'twere
hard to find
A slave more willing or a friend mora
true.
Aye, even they who say the worst about
you
Can scarcely tell what Z shall do without
you.

X have kissed all the klssabla
Hissed alt the hlssahle;
Z have balked everything Z can balk.
Z have crushed every one I could crush;
X have hushed every one Z could hush;
X hav* drunk everything drinkable.
Thought every thinkable;
Z have rushed everywhere Z could rush.
X have been everything Z could be.
And the scheme of things will not agree;
X have spent all that*s spendable;
Still It's not endable,
ind I mean It's a bother to me.

Your heart Is won;
Two eyes with sudden wonder filled.
And life's begun.
Th* tears of childhood and the play
That soon is past;
The triumph (it the altar when
The bond la fast.
The striving after things whereby
Men measure worth;
The wrinkles and the thinning hair.
The growing girth.
The rounded shoulders and the -hope*
That one by one
Die off until the last goes out.
And life Is done. 3
