The New York legislature, at its
recent session, solved the great road
question by the enactment of a new
law, providing, in substance, that
the board of supervisors of each
county may at once adopt a rad sys
tem for "the county, designating
such leading market roads, outside
of cities and incorporated villages,
as are to be embraced in the system.
A count engineer is then to be ap
pointed to superintend the improve
ments to be made on such roads, the
cxjiense of their improvement and
maintenance to be a county charge.
A fixed sum is to be appropriated
each year to that end by the board,
and it may designate on what roads
the amount for the year is to be ex
pended, care being taken that the
amount expended in each town shall
be proportionate to the equalized
valuation of its real property. To
raise the needed funds, in ad
dition to the ordinary tax
levy, the supervisors may is
sue bonds or other evidences of in
debtedness of the country, but never
at a higher rate of interest than 5
per cent. These county roads are to
be under Vbe exclusive jurisdiction
of the board of supervisors and the
county engineer, and exempt from
all control by the highway officers of
the tow ns, whose sole charge is con
fined to roads not embraced in the
county system," and whatever
amounts they may expend in that
direction shall be raised by the
money system of taxation, and not
in the way of "work on the foads."
The law thus enacted in New York
is substantially the same as that pro
nosed bv the roads committee in the
earlier stage of the present Illinois I

cannot be translated without marring the

translations we have already read, has un

She had a hard face aud an impudent little

I wonder how it comes alout," said J.

you only had one glance in all your lite

was a mere passing glance. Why, confound
it all, every time a chilly rain drizzles down

looking out on the dull earth just to think
of that one face. It has leen so long now,
nearly twelve years since I met a pale faced
girl in New York coming along Fifty-first

muddy streets aud drizzling rain to beat
everything. Some dark brown curls were
loosened by the wind and lay limp and wet
against her forehead. I observed all this
in passing by, and I imagined that the girl
was hungry or homeless, or both, but I
couldn't tell; all I could do was simply to
turn and look after her.
"I have traveled nearly around the world
since then In Asia, Africa and Europe and
out through the lonesome, dreary mining
camps of the west, but I haven't been able
to forget that face. On bright days I won

I feel this way. I know away down near

Proposed Chances In the Tioundariea of
i"Wr enterprising contemporary, the Spo
l.::r Review, calls attention to what it regard.'-
as the most feasible method of rcdi
viding the areas now included in the states
of Oregon, Washington and Idaho.
This method does not propose to create
four states out of the three, but to continue
the existing states under a change of boun
daries. The constitution declares that "no
new state shall be created or formed with
in the jurisdiction of any other state, noi
any state formed by the junction of two or
more states or parts of states without the
consent of the legislatures of the states con
cerned, as well as of the congress."
Practically, the consent of the. legisla
tures of the three states would le required
for carrying out the plan proposed, and the
possibility of securing such a consent is
based on the eiTort to show that the inter
ests of the people of nil three states would
be served by the change, and the expenses
of government reduced.
Briefly stated, the plan proposes that the
port ions of Washington and Oregon west
of the disc-ad'? mountains should be com
bined into a state to lte called Oregon; that
the portion of Washington east of these
mountains together with north Idnho
should form another state to lx called
Washington; finally that south Idaho and
eastern Oregon should 1m; joined under the
name of Idaho.
The argument for this change is that it
would substitute natural for arbitrary
lioundaries and brC:ig together areas which
have analogous or identical interests:
"All that territory lying between the
Cascade mountains on the east, the Pacific
wean on the west, the Canadian boundary
on t lie nort h and the Siskiyou mountains
on the south is identical in character and
kindred in resource. It comprises one of
the great natural drainage basins of the
west, and, moreover, it is served by a co:v.
iimii t raitsportat ion system. It was once
embraced in the state of Oregon. It should
be one state todc.y, instead of parts of two

panhandle of Idaho comprise another t'.iit

this should constitute a state."
Pursuing the recapitulation of possible
gains, tho Spokane llcvicw, v.'hich in pub
lished within the limits of the proposed
new state of Wahintoii, points out that
uniform jurisdiction would then le estab

The eastern half of Washington might hope
to lie relieved from the grievance of having
its interests subordinated to those of the
western part, as it thinks they i:ow some
times are. Finally, the people of north Ida
ho and eastern Washington would have
easier access to their seat of government.
These views have an interest as showing
how the far northwest is occupying itseli
with problems statemaking and state
mending. But more immediately impor
tant is the need of rehabilitating Xevada
by adding to it the greater portion of Utah,
sothat it may have a population and re

Signs ami Wonders of Jerusalem.
The lK'st accounts of the apparitions and
supernatural phenomena observed in and
around Jerusalem prior to its final over
throw by the Romans may lie found in the
writings of Josephus, the famous Jewish
historian. Josephus says:
"On the 8th of the month Zanthicus (be
fore the feast of unleavened bread), at the
ninth hour of the night, there shone about
the altar and circumjacent buildings of the
temple a light equal to the brightness of
day, which continued for the space of half
an hour." Tacit us says: "On another occa
sion appeared figures as of four giants, each
in the several directions from and above the
city, seeming to hold a monster stone in
such a manner that should it lie purposely
dropped or accidentally slip from the grasp
of the holders the sacred city must be anni
hilated. This was viewed by thousands
both inside and outside the walls."
Anot her supernatural sign is related on
the authority of Josephus, "whose veraci-.
tv," savs Scaliger, "deserves more credit
than all the Greek and Koman historians
put together." It is this: "Aliout the sixth
hour on a certain night the great eastern
gate of the city, which was of brass, bolted
and barred, and so heavy t hat 20 men had
'a great task in either opening or closing
it,' was found to have lwen opened without
human assistance while the guards were
pacing to and fro near by!" The Jews
themselves reckoned tins as a miracle. Sst.
