in the It is pretty well settled as a physiological truth that a oneseventh rest day for man and even beast is conducive to hap piness and We also have the cowinou consent of the state to this and law of rest enacted into a and penalties for Yet it is difficult to conceive of an abso lute cessation of all work on the Sabbath or any other one The door of diffi culty Is thus open and in order to judge charitably aud truly In all cases we must pnt ourselves Into every place where man Is allcd to stand and Some Viola tions are others The Jewish rulers got so narrow that a merciful re lease of a

body of the Sabbath is the spirit of Christ iu Where there is no if that place can be found there is no but those who are not under divine jurisdic tion will disregard But yet we are cautioned by Paul not to judge others too and Jesus means something more than the letter when he says that the Sabbath was made for The Jews had laid down so many silly and foolish rules and details that nobody could keep their Sabbath And when we have to make a catalogue of the allowable and nouallowable acts for the aud we will go on to judge each other by the list we are likely to land at the same place where did the Wo will have buried the the Sabbath in our glasses and The carnal man violates most all other spiritual and physiological ones and why may we not expect that he will that of the Sab bath The

cyclist to the realm of nui The league was formed and the matter was carried to the Be fore long decisions were obtained from several supreme courts that bicycles were vehicles in ttie eyes of the and the wheelmen obtained the same rights and privileges to Any one who knows what the preju dice against bicycles was in many parts of the country cannot fail to appreciate that when these concessions were gained the league had won a very considerable will not be skej tical of the announcement that the league is quite Skely successful in the fight which it is now carrying on for the improve ment of a question only less vital to the wheelmen than the and a which has much topbrtance for the public at large as for the riders of The when it began the battle for better went directly to the legislatures but it soon found thatbe Epre the representatives of the people could laws taxing their constitu ents for such an object all opposition ainonp those constituents must be re Surprising as it undoubtedly the opposition was very emphatic from the very class which would most be b cne who suffer more than any one else from the effects of bad cried out most loudly against any As as the league found this out tactics were and a campaign of education This is being ardently carried on by the wheel men in two a bureau has been established which has in charge the distribution and compilation of road im provement statis tics and directions are sent thence all over the land by Another branch is a lecture It is incum bent upon this bureau to find good speakers in every locality who are well informed on the subject of road improve Whenever meetings of farmers in the country or of boards of trade and like organizations in cities are to be held these speakers are sent to them with in structions to deliver interesting and informing addresses road im It seems impossible that these so vigorously carried can fail to result in George Bidwell and Isaac of Hew York were the originators of the road improvement project on the part of the They began and won the fight for tho opening of Central park to the wheel and after it was over took up the question of better Bidwell spoke the other day of an interesting ex periment which has been tried in several counties in New York state under his direction and which is particularly con Carefully ascertain the horse population of a county in which the roads are Then average the quan tity of road work the average weight pulled which a horse can Then take a county where the roads are carry out the same plan and compare the Bidwell says that these experiments show that in ITew York state good roads double the pulling pow er of thus reducing by onehalf the number of horses necessarily bought and supported in order to do a given amount of The saving in wear and tear of vehicles is hardly In New York state a roads improve ment association has been which has There is not even a majority of wheelmen among them they are men in all walks of life on which good roads have an A permanent organization was effected last spring at a convention in and the association will give its support to any wise legislation having road improve ment in Bidwell says that the road reform ers have made no extravagant They recognize that macadam or tel ford roads are impracticable in many sections of the country because the ma terial for making them could only be obtained at great But he thinks that in states like New for in one great artery of trade could be such as a macadam road from New York to This should be of good carefully built and in his be a state institu He argues that such a highway would have a good moral effect on every cross road in the Tho people would see how much easier their loads were hauled over the smooth state and would improve the minor He also thinks that in the improvement of roads lies the solu tion of the convict labor Most men are not anxious to break stone and he argues that in putting the convicts at road making the number of honest men who would be deprived of employment by convict labor would be reduced to a The wheelmen are a and can hardly expect sympathy from other classes unless their interests are identi That this is the case in the matter of road improvement is and that the wheelmen are earning the thanks of these other classes can perhaps be more easily shown them by

over this majority fa vored to made under anjacVof out Eight of fifteen TrechJ lolders favored laying out two or three roads running northand taking in the market towns and makingit easy for the

that loads that were good enough for the Hd Jersey farmers of fifty years ago are good enough for their It is worthy of when a com munity once gets a taste of macadam it wants more in it becomes enthusi astic for Tho points in favor of macadamized roads may be summed up briefly as followst Fewer accidents occur on roads than on the ordinary roughly constructed country both as regards wear and tear vehicles statistics are available to show precisely how much longer a or harness or horse will hist on uacadamized roads than ordinary but the percentage must bo largely in favor of as anyone Farmers to transport the products of their farms by teams long distances to market fully understand how much quicker time can tie made and how much heavier loads can beldrawu on macadamized roods than can be drawn on ordinary country a the country road must be ganged by the condition of its poorest While a farmer may be able to draw a heavy load for three fourths or perhaps seveneighths of the distance he may require to go a country there may be a spot of a few hundred feet where his horses would not be able to pull suchu he is compelled to estimate the capacity of his team by this poor many of raise or try to raise but as a rule have no good place for exercising A good macadamized road is precisely the thing for this In the long run it cannot be doubted that a macadamized road is far more economical than the ordinary It has been stated on so good an authority as of president of the Pope that a form located ten miles any city on a macadamized road is worth at least double as much as the same farm would b located five miles from the same city on an ordinary country especially Englishmen and who visit this country are invariably struck with the frightful con dition of our country iTany of the best roads in France were construct ed by the old Kapoleon for military put but by careful attention have been kept good to this It is to be hoped that every town in every county of New Jersey will inter est itself in macadamized Ten thousand miles of macadamized roads in the state will add at least double the cost of such roads to the valuation of property located on the lines of such thoroughfares and perhaps even a great er percentage than Road 3Iaking at In a letter recently written by Senator engineer of the macadam roadcommittee of South he said of the road must
