Periodically there are great bursts of agitation in Canadian and Ameri can papers for good roads that ap pears to have one centre of energy. The bicycle was the root of this asltatlon. The novelty of spinning twenty mllei on a Sunday morning to attend divine worship became easier (In mind) than walking one mile. In fact, worship was preferred at the former distance. How true the fol lowing words are: "All things work together for Good." Notwithstand ing the age of this proverb and Its familiarity, teachers of ethics and nictanhysics as a class denounced the bicycle as an Instrument of the devil. There would probably never have been such thorough Inspection of roads (so called) had not the Inven tor and manufacturers of that man motor hypnotized the public to be lieve Its propulsion was easy work. However, to many this work, self-imposed, was a delight augmented by ever-changing scenery and thrilling experience of coasting steep hills. As the writer recalls these scenes be fore him Is spread a perennial men tal banquet. The animated fashion plate of th exchange sitting by the dusty roadside clad In sweater and skull cap, almost unrecognizable with dust and perspiration, trying hard to mend a puctured tire, Is very distinct. Rapid transit Is exhilarating, particu larly if It Is done with comfort. Man's iusenulty for some time was taxed with this problem. Now we have the gasoline carriage that beyond doubt has come to stay. Its sale depends very much upon the condition of pub lic highways and by-ways. The capi tal that Is behind these carriages al lows no opportunity to slip whereby their business can ba Improved. Hence this continual agitation. Anart from the interest this manufacture may have, It Is a pleasure to have good substantial roadways, a credit to the community and pleasure and comfort to the traveler either by motor, foot or quadruped. The furious driver of any vehicle on a public highway Is liable, and should be treated severely, particu larly the one who depends upon steer ing gear possibly unworkable. Ontario wants good roads the best roads. I see California has organized a best roads convention. They propose to build about twenty miles of the best roads each year until all the main highways of the county of Santa Clara have been made first class ab solutely. The expense of this con struction can, it is declared, be met by levying an annual tax of $1 per $1000, and altbouzh it may be done in different districts of the county, all will form part of a pre-arranged general plan. Both political parties In the United States have conceded that the main tenance of truck roads ought not to bo laid upon tha adjacent proprietors, as roads are through lines of com munication, and are really of nation al importance. If this idea and sys tem was adopted at once by Ontario, many of the unemployed could be en gaged In permanent national work creditable to the country. According to all indications work will be scarce this winter. The un employed will suffer. Our Canadian winter will be new to many now with us. Work as above outlined would be a boon to many. The British emi grant the class we Canadians are of now seeking work and a home In our midst would appreciate It, and in some measure realize we are kinsmen that ne'er forget Auld Lang Syne. Lew Alexander, in the Hamilton (Ontario) Spectator. "FE" Continuous Parkways. " It Is usually agreeable to foot pas sengers as well as to those who ride to have a certain amount of shade. For a good macadam road, shade Is also desirable, as it prevents the dry ing of the surface and the formation of dust. The borders of our country roads should, in fact, be continuous parkways containing in every district representative groups of all the na tive trees to be found in the locality. There are country roads where rows of trees are pleasing, but usually Ir regular groups of trees with spaces between them of unequal eitent will be found more satisfactory. Many of our native shrubs, such as bazel hushes, sumachs, .elderberries, red branched dogwoods, viburnums, wild roses, snow berries, etc., will add to the attractiveness of our road sides, and there should never be a time lrom April till October when som of onr native flowers may not be found in bloom.

One of the rarest specimens of the fish kingdom known to waters con tiguous to tho North Carolina coast was captured In a eeine at Masrn boro Sound Monday by William Hewlett, a fisherman.

Strange to state it had a thin threadlike tall about fifteen Inches In length and on each side of tho rear appendage were two perfectly I formed gloved feet, with a smaller diversion having the exact apppar ! ance of a thumb, with the other part ; of tho hand mlttened. The mouth 1 of the strange specimen was about 1 five inches across and on each side i of the mouth or the under side of I ue body there were five "strainers" i or holes through which the fish Is ; said to rid Itself of refuse products j resulting from the forage It picks up at the bottom of the sea. The top ! of the fish was a dark slate color and the under part of the body was white.
