Bennington Has Good Material Out It Muit Be Worked Over Into Shape. Tlie newly organized local football team played its first ganio Saturday againstthe Y. M. C. A. team of North Adams on thenew athlotlc ileld. T,he scoro was a tle, 0 to 0, eaeh team raak ing a touchdown and jacking goal. Whllo-tho Bennington team did not win and in some rospects mado a rathor sirry exhlbltlon it showed that it ls made up of good materinl and neods only good hard practice aud teamwork to raako it one of tho best eleven that Bennington ever put on tho gridiron. Ono disagreeable featuro of the gamo was tho action of tlie crowd in push- ing over tho ropos into tho lleld, shutt ing out tho view of those who observ- ed the laws of deconcy and interfering with the players as well. The grpunds should be better poltcetl. . Arthur Cushman of North Benning ton has beon electedcaptain oflhe team. The lessons from the game last Sat urday are mainly these: The line is practically imprognable; the left ond of tlie line proved theniselves to be steady and reliable and witb their ex' traordinary qulek backs, the Adams team was unable to hardly start a forination toward the left before it was broken up and the runner downed. At the right end were made the only gains which matorialiMd" rhroughout the game for th Adams team. It is ootewort thafc Vhe Bennington backs wore not'only exlwniely slow in get- ting started and failed to findtftfioles E" ' h wjBre gpenad uptlnuajfajf for by tjtte maa isutf j&W, btfl ther bSWitKiKl Very pafptttffftmit costly errors In furabllng. It was because of a bad fumble that the only score was made by the Adams team, and in at loastthree insktnces in the first half, a funiule prevented a sure touchdown by the home team. All the faults of the Bennington team were mainly due to lack of practice and a proper amount of coachlng. We prosunio to say that those who have the pleasure of seetng Benning ton play this week Saturday will not bellevo it to be the same team that played last Saturday. Caroftll prac tice and consciontious work vill make a fine team for Bennington, as tho raaterial and abllitv is excellont. BURR AND BURTON. Defoati the Y. M. C A. Team at Manchester Saturday, Score 22 to 0, Tho Y. M. C. A. football team went to Manchester Saturday and was de feated by iSscoro of 22 to 0. The two teams in tho lirst half were well matchod, although tho Burr and Burton boys showed tho rosult of more practice in their excellent team work. The score at the end of the first half was 5 to 0. f In the second half Burr and Burton put in one of their Instructors as hal back and the remainder of the gamo was simply a serles of rushes through Bennlngton's line for gains of from flve to fiftcen yards until tlme was called. The Burr and Burton made threo touch downs during this half, but failed to kick one goal. A return gamo will be played here Oct. 31. ROBINSON-LASHER.

A number of sermons upon the sanio subject and another resolution at a subsequent meeting finally met approval. Prior to this, however, it took yoars to oonvince the peoplo of the dosirabillty of a grade survey, but after it came who regret- ted it? 1 For several years I fought strenu ously against the use of the1 quartsite hardhead, holding that it was entirely unsuited for road bullding, but so per- sistant were tlie advocates of this niaterlal that use finally ended in the absolute destruction of nearly all tho streets. Indeed, at the opening of tho current year it was generally ad muteu tnat tlie streets were in poorer condltion than for twonty years prior, notwithstandlng tlie fact that nore than $100,000 had been oxpended upon them during that time There is today hardly a rod of street niacudamized with quartzite that is in good condition, whlle the only street laid down properly with bluo lime stone is in good condition aftor eight years' uso. It matters loss, howovtr, what sort of material ls used lf It is proporly used. Road bullding is a soience ro quiring study"and obsorvation and ex perienco. I havo always been a stick ler for good roads, and so intorested in tho subject did I becorne that' I took up the study, laid in technical and practical books, went about and ob served, and the past year put to a partial test the frults of these studies. With the exception of a little patch of street 121 feet long on North street, which I personally took In hand, my duties have been, as chairman of tho treet commlttoo, largoly advisory. But It is not denied that a bettor showlng was made this year In tho street dopartment than In any prevlous ear, since thero wero laid down 2478 feet of stono street, requiring over a tbousand Ioads of metal, and 5253 feet of graveled street, requiring noarly 3000 louds of material. These streets wero put down to stay for a cousldor ablo time. Tho stono streets especl ally, with Intelllgent care, are good for ten years. I may add, however, that lf given a good blue stone quarry, a steam drill (costing loss than 1200 and dolng tho work of 30 men) and tho tools wo al roady own, nearly or quito doublo thq stone work of tho past year could havo been dono in a better and more lasting way. Still, it is not onough to build a, street well whon built; . it should bo taken caro of. Wator is tho groat on erayofthe road bed. If a streot is not laid down and compacted inlayors, orowned .well as to foundatlon and surfaco, and then kopt clean It will soon go to decay. If horse dropplngs and othor rofuse are Wt on the mirfacp. and these kept wot lth the treet sprinklei and tho rains, a disintegrating olemont is al ways prosent. A good street re minds one of a good Pet of teeth. If kept clean and occasionally repaired the teeth will endure well into age. As u practical doraonstration of sovoral thlngs,- the little patch on North street, abuttlng Maln, was laid down of Inferior material in a super ior way, and then cared for. When it had stood for a tlrae to getwell settled and dried out, it was scraped of its top drassing to the bare stone. It was found to be as smooth as asphalt and as hard as a rock. Of tho sevon Ioads of stono dust lluslied into the top layer 10 1111 the voids and bind the surfaco, loss than a lond was scraped olT. Hereafter, by contributlons from abuttlng business Urms, lt is to be hand swopt twico a week. This is to demonstrato tho practical uee of a street swceper, tho utllity of keoping cloan, and tho woar Ing qualltlos of a streot proporly laid down and Intelllgontly cared for. J. II. UVINOSTON.
