ItltOAD I i HKS.
Rome weeks ago. The Advertiser bad
an editorial article on the matter of
ftood roads and broad tires. In Wed
nesday's issue of The Stale. Mr. W.
Ti. Wor.d.s has an excellent presenta
tion of the same subject, advocating
practically the same methods suggest
ed by ibis paper. The gist of the ar
gument Is that It will be impossible to
have promnnently good roads in this
country until the tires on wagons nre
made broader, that broad tires them
selves are good machinery for making
good roads. Mr. Woods' article ap
pears In another column.
Every year each county in the state
spend a large sum of money in tem
porarily improving the roads; not so
much improving, however, as it Is re
pairing the damages done by vehicles.
Ah Mr. Wood8 points out. the buggy Is
no light that its passage has little ef
fect on Hie road, and the automobiles,
because they have broad tires are a
positive help to the roads. It is the
heavily-loaded wagon, with the narrow
tire that works the damage. Possibly
Mr. Woods' idea as to the breadth of
the tires Is a little extreme; for In
stance, an Inch narrower on each
?Width be suggested might be sufficient ;
It would at least be a great lmprov
menl on presont conditions.
To have tiie tread of the front and
hack wheels different, the latter a few
Snohes wider, would give the effect of
|iacking a considerable surface of the
roadway. It would be an increased
effect, over the good wrought by auto
mobiles. We venture the assertion
that with no extra work on the roads
of this county at present, but with all
?wagon tires widened, tho roads would
ha materially better In one year's time
Chan If an extra three thousand dol
lars were upent, In the same tlmo,
with narrow tirod wagons still in use.
While macadam roads, when first put
down, are unquestionably the best that
can he built, the expense Is enormous
and tho cost of keeping them In re
p- almost unreasonable. West
tfi. treet right here In the city Is
a ?ng example of what macadam
r? toan. A good clay road, though'
! washed by the rains of winter, are not
so much damaged as the macadam
' road, unless on pretty near a level.
Then the broad tire wagons will keep
ili.' clay roads well packed; they will
not eul them up. us do the wagoua we
have tin se days.
Wo commend the article by Mr.
Woods to the careful consideration of
th<? county atltorltlOS and the people

r.v conforming to the order recent
ly Issued by the fourth assistant post
master general relative to the practice
of placing loose coins in mail boxes,
all rural patrons can, to a great ex
tent, lighten the hardship imposed on
carriers in this matter of collecting
pennies ami other coins from boxes.
Tim onier went to effet t yesterday,
ami the rural letter carriers will he
?piiek io appreciate the Improvement.
And doubtless all patrons realize the
importance of the order, for the striet
observance of ii will mlnlinl/.o possi
ble confusion in the loss of postage
money and the delay of dispatching
mail matter. Many of the mail boxes,
wo understand, are provided with coin
holding receptacles in this county, but
not all. Remember, that from now on.'
carriers will not bo required to take
up your unstamped letters and pack
ages, though accompanied by the a
inouill necessary to prepay the post
age, unless such coins lie enclosed in
an envelope, wrapped securely in a
piece of paper or placed in a small cup
or box. So. in helping the carrier you
at the same time throw safe guards
around you: interests and promote the
cHlciency of the service.

The legislators can a: least boast

St. Valentines day has come and

Rufus H. C'hoat, one of the foremost
lawyers ever produced by ihis Country,
once said at an annual banquet of
the New England society:
"When Eve brought woe to all man
Old Adam called her woe-man:
Bui when she wood with love so kind,
He then pronounced her woo-man.
'Hui now. with folly and with pride,
Tholr husbands' pockets trimming.
The ladies an- so full of whims
That people call them w(h)lmon."
And there it is: the cause of all our
woe. yet "with love so kind:" whimsi
cal, yet "masler over man's varied
mind.'' Verily, man cannot live with
out her, nor can he live with her, he
has tri? d both.

Prom a recent issue of Life, we
quote this gem of philosophy:
"The short of it is courting.
The long of it is living;;
The short of ii. divorce is,
The long of it, forgiving."
Which calls to mind the following
"A maid, a man. an open fan;
A seat upon the stair;
A stolen kiss; six weeks of bliss
And forty years of care".
