We occasionally have a cloud burst in some part of the county, or have an accident to some large bridge, and I consider it is fair to deduct in' . of the net road fund for an Emergency Fund, which, in this case, amounts to $2,566.00, which leaves $23,088.00. The City of Maysville produces of the above fund, $726.00, which deduct ed from $23,088.00 leaves a balance of $15,828.00, to be distributed in the 16 Precincts of Mason County, In propor tion, as it is produced in said Pre cincts.

It is true, that there will be many pikes that the above amounts of money would not make much of a showing, but If the water was first got ten off of the roads, so tliat the con tinned depreciation which has been going on so long and to such a great extent, would be stopped, it would only lie a matter of a few years until the expenditure of the amounts of money, each year, would produce fair ly good roads. As to what results can be attained with $50.00 per mile, I beg to elte my leaders to the following instance: The Mason ft Lewis turnpike, when it was a toll road, consisted of about 20 miles, and for a period of 22 years, according to the statement of Mr. A. R. Glascock, who was Treasurer of this road, for that entire period, the up keep of this 20 miles of road averaged $50.00 over the entire period of 22 years spoken of above. This, however, did not include $1,600.00 for the re placement of bridges, which were lost In a flood. When the Mason and Lewis turnpike was turned over to the County, as a part of the free turnpike system, I think no one will doubt but that it waa In first-class condition. The main line turnpikes, aa you will notice, have between $2,000.00 and $3,000.00 each, coming to them, and our Fiscal Court could make applica tion to the State and could secure the amount of money that is apportioned to us each year, and we would thereby be enabled to resurface from two to three miles of each of our main un roadways, each year, and In 5 years time, every main line pike in Mason county, will have been resurfaced and the funds applicable to the cross pikes would not have to be touched. It Is only necessary to apply busi ness principles to this plan In order that good roads would result. I do not believe that the present management would secure good re sults with any amount of money ob tainable. The counties I visited In Central Kentucky, last week, will build beau tiful roads at the price of $1,600.00 to $3,000.00 per mile, and In only one In stance did I see a road that cost the latter amount. Thla road was prac tically rebuilt from end to end, a great deal of excavation having been made to widen parte of the road. The plan I am suggesting, of course, is only my own Ideas, aa taken from the obaervatlons I have made, and I could hardly expect that my plan would be adopted In whole, but I am confident it would devise a system by which the management would start, knowing Just the amounts of money that could be expended, and every tax payer in Mason county would be get ting the benefit of, at least, the amount of road fund he la paying In taxes, and If thla la done, I du not believe there would be any complaint in auy quar ter of Mason county. The question Is. where shall we start? Our preaent management have shown in the laat 5 yeara, that they have made a' failure, absolutely, of the running of the turnpike affalra, there fore, la order that no more of Maaon (ouuly's money be frittered away, there la but one thing to do.

RAILROAD TIME TABUS affairs over to some-one-else, as 18 months more of the present manage ment, will certainly put us in condi tion that many years to come would not bring ub back to where we should be. Thla closes my arguments In the case of the Mason County Turpikes. If is now up to the taxpayers of Mason county to act, as the facts I have stated are absolutely true and have never been contradicted, and the pres ent management stands guilty of every accusation I have made by the silence they have maintained. W. HOLTOX KEY atom Modest persons who have been hold ing their breath may now let it out again. They have received the maxi mum shock. The momentous question whether skirt borders were to follow demurely after shoe tops receding anklewurd or were to go still higher, on the rebound, as it were, has been answered. Skirts are to be longer Paris Mas said it, and when Paris says so the thing is as good as done. But even Paris does not promise that the lengthening will be sufficient to re store to present application Sir John Suckling's lines: Her Feet beneath her petticoat Like little mice stole in and out, As if they feared the light. There will be no low visibility about feet. They will be perfectly frank and apparent. Also ankles, for skirt hems will be from Ave to six Inches from the ground, according to this fall's models. It is explained that while the new skirts are not really narrow, "they are straightened, and therefore must be longer in order to give good lines." The panier effect's fullness about the hips Is to be shifted to the shoulders, although we are as sured that we are safe from anything approaching the old leg-of-mutton sleeves. In other words, the dressmakers' bulletins assure us that skirts are to be sensible In fullness and length, not so short as to make the wearers ap- rear ungainly, nor yet so long as to compete with the street cleaners' brooms. Just why skirts should be longer for winter's slush and mud than for summer draught is "one of the things no fellow can find out," but then It's none of bis business, any way. Of course, "dresses will cost more," and very appropriately, as hus bands and fathers will agree, "somber colore will be worn." Though the publio eye may be fo cused upon Mexico, the political cam paign will furnish eotne choice sparks nevertheless.
