It will be tLf will oe duty of of this board to gather statistics as to the exact condition of the road.' throughout the state. The board will be required to visit allot the counties of the state and make a careful inspection of the roads, the existing road laws, tho amount of tho road taxation, the expei ditura of road funds and to secure such information as pertains to the highway ' system of the state. The commiesion 1 will then be required to proceed with such legislation as will enable couutiis to build the roads that are needed.

The protected industries were gratified by tho challenge, but declined to be exterminated. Then Mr. Vest, who is a born exterminator, decided In exterminate the gold ftiindard, but had to quit, as the g"ld staudurd wouldn't. Now Mr. Vest, still on extermination bent, has fired an exterminating resolu tion at expansion. Expansion will posi tively refuse to lie exterminated.

May Ship Game. In an official opinion Attorney Gen. Edward C. Crow holds that tho provis ions of the act of 1803, and the amend ment thereto, passed by tho General Assembly of this state in 1805, has ex pired by limitation. Tho act provides that it shall be "unlawful for ami Uunng the period of livo vears next succeeding the passage thereof for any person to sell or attempt to sell for the puriose of shipping outside of the county where killed, or ship or attempt to ship from the eountv where killed to any other countv in tho state, or to any point out side of the state, any quail, pinnated irrouse. prairie chicken, deer or turkey." Tho law as it existed under the act of ISlXi did not include the words "deer or turkey." Tho amendment of 1S95 does not undertake to extend the time of the operation of tho law, but simply provides that the two additional species, ueer anu turkey, shall be included in its prohibi tory features. Hence, the law expired by limitation five years after the passage of the act of lH'.K.

The New York police have been or dered to arrest all persons throwing pa per or other rubbish into the streets, to the end that tho said streets be cleaned by preventing them from getting too dirty. That is a good idea. It is enforce ment of an ordinance that in too many American cities has Iieen long a dead ' letter. If paper, banina peels, sticks and stones and other refuse be kept olT j the streets, the work of cleaning them I would bo much simplified, the gutters and catch-basins would not bo so fre quently clogged and there would be less danger or accidents to persons using the streets. A rule of that kind is rigidly enforced I h Paris and with good results.

As the wind was blowing at a spanking rate at the time, it was simply impossible to comply with tho request. Besides such work would not comport with his dignity and might be unfavorably considered. So he went to the lock up and was shortly thereafter relieved of some coin of the realm.

The prevalence of colds can be at tributed principally to the common vice ot becoming overheated. When the temperature is 10 or more below zero it is the practice of some persoc3 to stay indojrs as much as possible and bake Iiemselves. The office man turns on the steam, shuts down the windows and roasts. In this unnatural and unwhole some atmosphere hi remains three or four hours, soaks with perspiration and lazicess, and then goes out into the open air. Of course, he fevls the cold, for bis clothing is dajip and the cbacge is too sudden. Arrived at home, he spends '.he evening in a superheated air, and is thus a ready victim of influenza. Then le wonders why he suffers so much i'rom cold and takes cold so easily. There is a proper moderation t be observed in the b?atiog of offices and living rooms. There are persons whose blood is so poor or whose circulation is so weak that they are not comfortable .n a temperature under SO.
