Home Decoration. Perhaips no part of the furniture suf fers more from the effects of moving than do the (books. They are only too apt to get lost or Injured I« rough ■handling. The only correct method of moving the contents of a bookcase Is to lay In a supply of empty wooden soap boxes, or any kind of flat, strong wooden (box, such a» grocers receive goods in and which they are usually (willing to dispose of for a nominal price. Line these boxes with old news papers and lay the books within in layers, separated by more newspapers, filling in the spare cracks with smaller books or wads of paper, the top spread papers and the task Is done. Unless the books are to travel distance, as by train, it Is unmeo Then over somie essary to put lids on the boxes. It adds to their weight, and if marked books the movers ought to know how to handle them without mishap, case, however, of valuable books, they should be securely boxed to avoid In jury. If there are several bookcases In the house, each box of books should be labeled to avoid confusion, and as far In the Do You Know That Philipps puts up the best 25c box of Chocolates and Bon Bons in the city. 625 Market Street ! 1 as possible each shelf should be packed together so that upon arrival at the new house the books can be replaced on their respective (bookshelves with as little trouble as possible.

Price, Loguc and Scott Tell of Pittsburg Convention HIGHWAY WORK DISCUSSED Some Interesting Information la em bodied In the report submitted to the Levy Court yesterday by Levy Court - men Jamee Loguc and William A. Scott and Highway Commissioner Francis A. Price, who attended the National Road makers' Convention In Pittsburg as delegatee recently. Their report also hag been submitted to Governor Lea. In It the delegates say: We. Uhe delegates appointed to rep resent the Levy Court of New Castle pounty. attended the Fourth Annual Convention of uhe American Road Mak ers' Association, held It Carnegie Hall at Pittsburg, Pa. March 12th and 13th. of the present year. The convention was largely attended, there being between eleven and twelve hundred delegates 'present, representing 32 states of the Union—some of the delegates coming *from as far as New Mexico. It was composed of men thor oughly. Interested «with the subject of good roads. This subject has made great pro gress and It seems to us that It Is one of the most Important subjects for the consideration of the tax-payers of the different states. The State of New Tork has adopt ed a constitutional amendment allow ing the State to be bonded to the ex tent of $»0,000 noo for' road (purposes, "While Pennsylvania Is considering the expenditure of 330.000,000 for the same purpose. (Several other states are con sidering thé subject of amending their constitutions In order that Uhe State ■may assist in J tenanca of gùoH This shows the general trend of pub lic opinion and there Is no doubt but be t gliding and main road«. that the good roads fever was largely If not wholly brought abou t by the agi tation of the bicycle and automobile riders. The convention was full of arguments for good roads, the wny and manner of building them tyas not so much dis cussed, the trend of the argument being that we should bulkl a road to satisfy the requirements of Its particular sec tion. both as to material used and the kind of travel to which It will be sub jected. In the address guide by hon, James H. MacDonald, «tato Highway Com missioner of Connecticut, he practically said, "build your roads of the most available material. If It will provide a surface lasting enough to carry the traffic tot will pass over It. Use the ■material that Is near at hand, If suit able, tor we must remember that the first cost Is not the principal cost of the road, we must consider the cost of maintenance, and the nearer the source of supply of the material used In re pairing. the less the cost of caring for the road. The Miibjeet of the amount of travel on roads was referred to by A. N. Johnson. State Highway Engineer of Illinois. They have been taking a sys tematic census of road travel In that State, and he mentioned the difference In travel, on a certain day, between two foads leading to the same town; one a mud road and in bad condition and the other a good rood. On the (bad road there were 40 vehicles passed over It. and on the good road 300, where«» apparently under the some conditions both roads should have had the same amount of travel; showing that a large part of those dependent on the poor road were deprived of the opportunity to travej and transact whatever business they may have had In hand. The census also shows that as the roads approach the towns, the travel Increases In number and In. the weight of the traffic, which would Indicate that the greatest good to the greatest number tan be effected by first build ing those roads leading out from the center of the business district and pushing out from It to the more sparse ly-settled portions, and as the roads recede from the center they may be made narrower -and of lighter con struction. •' In New York, the county has the right to put In bids on any roads Chat are advertised, which right no doubt has a tendency bo prevent a combination of contractors for the purpose of keep ing tip the cost of budding the roods. This (State also assists In «he main tenance and repair of the common roads. No one with whom we conversed would advance an opinion that any particular kind of road would be the best road for all section», but the gen eral opinion was that the Kind of road ■to be built depended on local condi tions. As to materials, everybody agreed that when roads are Improved, the neeersary S' quence I» their mainten ance, and It seems to be the concensus of opinion that In making appropria tions for highways, that more should be appropriate! for maintenance than for new work. This of course applies to a locality where they have made considerable progress In constructing a fystem of good roads. It is said that France, where there is a fine system of good roads, doe« not appioprlate a dollar for building but does appropriate four million dollars for the mainten ance of her highways. This should be object lesson for us In Delaware; that our Improved highway« constantly demanding our atten tlon and must expect them to bo a constant cost to us if they are io be 1 kept in good condition, I As to the location of the roads to be built, we believe that they should be built In county ; In doing this, more people will them and see the advantage of having a good road on which o travel. an we see are different sect ion f of the use I Each section of good road hill be an object lesson to Its particular locality, j and the ptoplo of the whole county will come into contact with them, and a demand for more good roads will | i **' r»su.t. i A more potent education eonld hand .

Y. ritè la planning a system of good roads for the -State of Rhode Island, which Is divided into two parts by Narragansett bay, they selected their routes so that when all the parts had been built they would (have continuous highways throughout (both the Eastern and West ern sections of the State. After this Is completed they any then build lat eral lines to accommodai» those living off the main line. This system corresponds with the idea In our State of building what Is known a« the ''Sfate Road" from one end of the State to the other. It Is a fact that the .weak should help the strong. It was said on tho floor of the convention by ex-Sen,iter William Fllnn, of Pittsburg, that the County of Allegheny, which 1» assessed for one hundred million dollars, received but 389,000 for road Improvements while York county, whose assessment Is much smaller, receives 3273,000; and he further »aid that while Phlladellhila and Pittsburg did not receive a cent for road (Iwilding from the t-tato,, they furnished 5 per cent of the taxes of Pennsylvania: thus showing that the rural districts must have help from the rich cities. We (wish to say that the City of Wil mington has done a commendable act i by allowing her»olf to be -bonded for her share of the 3300.000 to help her rural neighbors build Improved high ways in order to gat merchandise to the city and aid the farmer to get his ■produce to market. The residents of the rural districts of this county have a decided anti pathy for automobiles, they must, how ever, remember that it is through the users of bicycles and automobiles that the great Interest In improved public highways has come and 'hoy must also accept tho fact that motive power In road vehicles has come to stay and must (be accepted as one of the condi tions of the future. The owners and users of such vehicles are willing to share of the taxes, the better pay the highways the more they are will ing to pay and the income derived from them should be directly applied to the Improvement of our highways. The amounts derived from automo biles In Massachusetts last year was $35,000. and tn Pennsylvania. 342.000. This ad I goes to the Improvement of highways in those states. In regard to the Improvement of our own roads, we are firmly of the opinion that we should build such roads as are bested fltlol to tho conditions govern ing each particular road. We have In this county. In nearly nil sections of ,lt. materials which If properly handled will make a good and complete road. Ip those sections of It wtn>re there is there Is much plenty of stone and heavy hauling, use stone; where there 1» good grgvel, ose It: and where there are sand/arad clay, use them toy put ting rand on < lay or clay on sand. Any road should have drainage sufficient to carry away the water from It. We believe that hy observing tho above principles, we can. In a few years, have the highway« *n «ood condition, suitable to the necessities of each p«r tiouJar section. We wish to thank you for selecting us as your delegates and wish to state that the delegation attended every ses sion of the convention and were atten live to Us business. We feel that we have been benefited and hope to be able to put In practice gome things we have learned. April 2. I90T. W. A. Scott. James Logiue. Francis A. Price. Captured Big WEST CHESTER. Pa..
