Need of An Engineer.
Tbe need of a little engineering
knowledge in tbe working of our
public roads is very apparent.
There are many places which
could be vastly improved and -the
expense lessened after the first
small outlay. Tbe Maury lane on
the Hermanville road is a striking
illustration of this. A small wet
weather branch crosses tbe road
twiôe, necessitating the keeping up
of two bridges, when if a little
ditching was done on the south
rfide of tbe road, both bridges
could be dispenssd with and tbe
road materially improved. A man
who often comes that way says he
would be willing to do tbe ditch
ing for tbe lumber in tbe bridges.
There are many other places, 00 a
smaller scale, which have been
mentioned to the writer.
To Cure Children's Colds
Keep child dry, clothes comfortable, avoid
exposure and-give Dr. Bell's pine-Tar
Honey. It is pleasant, soothing,antiseptic,
' phlegm and reduces inflammation.
The first dose gives relief, continued treat
ment with proper care will avoid serious
illness or a long cold. Don't delay treat
ment. Don't let your child suffer. Get a
bottle to-day. Insist on Dr. Bell's Pine
Tar-Honey. 25c. at Druggists.
