Letter From George Wash ington During a recent visit to Wash ington City on business con nected with the State Highway Commission, Mr. X. A. Kramer, the engineer of the highway department, discovered the fol lowing letter while looking through manuscript in the Con gressional Library. This letter from Gen. Washington shows the great interest then extant in public roads and the difficulties which had to be met at that time more than at the present. The Father of his Country had trouble with county courts at that time just as we do now and urged that the authority in dealing with the roads should be with drawn from this local authority The letter follows: Linrary of Congress, Washing ton. Manuscript Diyision. Ex tract from letter of George Washington to Patrick Henry, Governor of Virginia, as copied in Washington’s letter-book by his secretary, * * * * do you not think my _i n• ii. ai i•. ,1 oji, time me ucuu, uic saving & convenience of this country, all require that our great roads leading from one public place to another, should be straightened & established by law, & the power in the county courts to alter them, withdrawn. To me these things seem indis pensably necessary, & it is my opinion they (will take place in time; the longer therefore they are delayed, the more people will be injured by the alterations when they do happt-n. It is equally clear to me, that, putting the lowest valuation upon the labour of the people who work upon the roads, under the exist ing Law & customs of the pres ent day, the repairs of them by way of contract, to be paid by an assessment on certain Dis tricts (until the period shall ar rive when Turnpikes may with propriety be established) would be infinitely less burthen-some to the community, that ‘the pres ent mode. In this case the con tractor would meet with no fa vor; every man in the District would give information of neg lects;—whereas negligence under the present system is winked at by the only people who know how, or can inform against the overseers; for strangers had rather encounter the inconven ience of bad roads, than the trouble of an information—& go away prejudiced against the country, for the polity of it. With great esteem & respect I have the honor to be &c. G: Washington. Mt. Vernon 30th Novr. 1785. Will Grist Killed v | A special from water Valley dated January 1st states that Will Grist was shot and almost instantly killed by a man named Zachary, a neighbor of Grist, while the two were riding along the public road near Water Val ley.

I had to lay off and quit everything that caused the least strain on my back. I couldn’t turn over in bed without having sharp stabs of pain that went through me like an electric shock. Doan’s Kidney Pills cured me.’’ (Statement given in May, 1911.) OVER TWO YEARS LATER Mr. Platt said: “I have never needed Doan’s Kidney Pills since they cured me of kidney trouble some years ago.

Both 'Phones 46 To Test Suspected Coin. There Is a very simple means of testing a suspected coin, which can be applied in any circumstances. Take a good coin and vigorously rub its milled edge against that of the sus pect If the coin on trial Is a “wrong ’un” It will peel off, or at least show signs of flaking. If the edge bears the test the coin may safely be accept ed. This advice was given by an offi cer of the criminal investigation de partment at England, who declared it to be a certain test VOU CAN DEPEND 1 ^ 8,11w'': UPON IT When you let R. H.
