One is; that we ask the worldly man to obey God's law, this far: and the other is, that professing Christians are working to f u I Ii 11 this letter, which kill- eth. But more of this farther on Paul says; -Let no man judge you in meat or drink, or in respect of a holy day or of Hie new moon, or of the Sabbath days; which are a shadow of things to cornel In the south there are 2,334,067 Baptists, of whom 1,194,520 are whites, in 15,894 churches, with 8,548 ordained ministers. Baptisms for the past year, 77,507. These white Baptists are supposed to he the constituency of the I a () southern Baptist convention, which ‘*x ** closed its annual session in Fort Wortn, Tex., in May. There were 784 delegates, besides hundreds of visitors from the vast territory, stretching from Maryland to Missouri, from Kentucky to Texas. In that area there are 23,000,000 of population. The above figures put the Baptists in the lead numerically. The convention unanimously re-elected its honored president, Judge Jonathan Harbison, of Alabama, and its able secretaries, Drs. L. Burrows, Georgia, and O. F. Gregory, Maryland, were similarly honored. The foreign mission board, located at Richmond, reported 37 main stations, 124 out stations, 33 male and 45 female missionaries, 29 ordained natives, 46 unordained male and 11 female helpers, 62 churches, 2,213 members, 409 baptisms, ll male and 12 female schools, 6 mixed schools, 295 male and 380 female scholars; contributions from native churches, $4,-687.88. These missions are located in the provinces of Shantung, Shanghai, Chinkiang and Canton, in China; in Africa, in Italy, in the states of Bahia, Rio and Minas Genies, in Brazil; in the states of Coahuila. Zacatecas and Jalisco, in Mexico; and in Japan. Of the receipts $21,222.91 came from our Woman's Mission societies, an increase of $2,506.63 over last year. The board has been increasing the forces in the field as fast as the liberality of the churches would permit. During the past twenty months -IO new missionaries have been sent forth. Of this number ll have gone to Mexico, 3 to Brazil, 5 to Africa, IT to China and I have gone to open the new mission in Japan. Our treasurer's report shows that the board has received this year $109,174.20. The balance on hand, after all liabilities are met, is $1,922.34. This is $10,150.45 more than was received last year, and $27,-908.02 more than the average annual receipts for the last ten years. The home board, located at Atlanta, reported UT I missionaries, who have performed 13,849 weeks of labor, supplying 1,182 churches and stations. They have baptized 4,477 persons, organized 267 churches and 336 Sunday schools, and built 84 church houses; 270 missionaries labor among tile native whites, 30 among the foreign population, including Indians. In the work among the colored people the board assists in tile support of 45 colored missionaries, who are preaching the gospel to those of their own race, 2 of whom are iii Maryland, 12 in Georgia and 30 in Texas. Five white brethren have been employed as theological instructors in Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi, and have taught hundreds of their preachers and deacons. Strangely enough the work in Cuba is in charge of the home board. It ought to be known as foreign work. The religious interest in this island continues unabated. < lur missionaries number 21. The total membership is more than 1,700. The daily schools have an average attendance of about 700, and the Sunday schools number more than 2,000. About twenty young men are preparing for the ministry, so that it bas become necessary to organize a school for their instruction. A high solid I f\ a- girls i> greatly needed and a printing press indispensable. The home treasury reports $68,297.76, of which the woman’s societies gave $10,014.85. These figures represent but a tithe of what soutl^rn Baptists are doing for home miss!-ms. To them must be added tho* large sums spent by our 6tate boards. Of course the Southern Baptist theological seminary was before the convention. The financial statement showed that in addition to the buildings, libra-. , etc., the seminary has about $300,000 endowment. The trustees have asked for an additional $100,000, of which alf has been secured. Dr. J. A. Broadus appealed for $10,000 from this meeting, and soon $16,780 was given iii cash and pledges. A committee was appointed to confer with the brethren of the north in regard to the celebration of the centennial of the modem foreign mission movement by Baptists in 1892. The committee consists of Hon. J. L. M. Curry, H. A. Tupper. D. I).. II. II. Harris. D. D., George Cooper. I). D., and Rev. T. P. Bell.—Independent. The Hard Work That Falls to the French Woman’s Lot. but the body is of Christ.” And Jesus himself says, that the Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.” the i on ti Jct. as to Sabbath observance will likely go on so long as there is a conflict with sin in the world. It is pretty well settled as a physiological truth that one-seventh rest day for man (and n boas.) is conducive to health, hap-ss and prosperity. We also have the ion consent of the state to this fact, and the law of rest enacted into a statute, and penalties for violations. Yet it is difficult to conceive of an absolute cessation of all work on the Sabbath or any other one day. The door of di lucidly is thus open and in order to judge charitably aud truly in all cases we must pnt ourselves intoevery place where man is called to stand and act. Some violations are clear, others not. The Jewish rulers got so narrow that a merciful release of a suffering woman on the Sab-was condemned. We get rid of this case however, by agreeing readily that the objector was a "hypocrite,” far he could not answer Jesus' argument. Well, the Savior stood on solid ground, but yet tin* pharisees as a body were not convinced. >\ e may be able to show that some special things cannot be avoided.on the Sabbath aud that would settle for some that thing, but it would not make a man a true observer of the day who has not the spirit of Christ for the "body" of the Sabbath is the spirit of Christ in us. Where there is no law. (if that place can be found) there is no transgression, but those who are not under divine jurisdiction will disregard it. But yet we are cautioned by Paul not to judge others too rashly, and Jesus means something more than the letter when he says that the Sabbath was made for man. The Jews had laid down so many silly and foolish rules and details that nobody could keep their Sabbath law. And when we have to make a catalogue of the allowable and non-allowable acts for the Sabbath, and we will go on to judge each other by the list we are likely to land at the same place where did the Jews. We will have buried the spirited' the Sabbath in our glasses and traditions. The carnal man violates most all other spiritual laws, and physiological ones too, and why may we not expect that he will that of the Sabbath? The man who aches to go into his corn and hay-tield on the Sabbath and is only kept back by fear of law or neighbors opinions, is not keeping the Sabbath, seeing he walks up and down his iron cage like the hungry tiger looking for prey lf I am intwining to trust God for my "food and raiment,' if he commands a seventh day vacation then I am outside his realm, a spiritual alien. Ii is true that we must riot make the Sabbath a day of exactions and exactness—of slavery. It was made for man's good; it is a day of happy suspension of toils. It should be emblematic of “the rest that remaineth to God’s people.” It will always be a day of imprisonment for some people, but a "day of all the week the best” for others. Tho Christian world and nation agree on a specific day. and t bat man who will not observe it violates the common compact. We cannot however. demand as a state, that men shall go to church. But we can that they drop trade and work and public commotions on the streets. One man has no right to do what ill may not, lf all violate the day then it is blotted out, and we have not even a milestone, not a stopping >ta-tion along the whole human pilgrimage, but a treeless plain or desert march before us. It requires a concensus of all to keep well one day of rest. Mati i> so knit in commerce and industry with bis fellows that unless we move with the unanimity of an army very few can keep •'holy day.” But when we look at tin* contin* ental notions of Europe we ought, in our Sabbath perplexity to thank God and take courage. It is better observed in this country than any other religious command by the world at large. While the complications of modern life, like unto a through train (with man or beast) from New York to San Francisco, seem to imfringe on the Sabbath, yet wa* ought to use all the physical, moral and legal suasions to inculcate tin* observance of a rest for the good of society; and for the world a memorial day of God. And he who has tin* spirit of Christ will be a law unto himself in this day as on all others. The Sa. aith, like the week day, was uh* for man. lf we misuse either we away this much privilege of life, and it ill stand against us in the final ledger balance of accounts. Amos Stkckki.. Worth While—Improving Our Talents— Woman’s Place in the Family—Well Known Women Swimmers— The Teething Bally. A multitude of observers have noticed a vast difference in character between the Frenchman and the French woman. So little does this difference appear to be related to the common distinctions of sex that it hits often been said that in France the woman is the man anil the man the wornau. Making allowance for absurd exaggeration, there is something to support the paradox. It is the disposition of the average French woman to take life much more seriously than the average Frenchman; to realize and accept the obligations and duties iu a nobler spirit of selfsacrifice and courageous endeavor. Women of perverse nat ure, aud whom society has spoiled, still represent but a small minority of their sex in France. The majority,of whom the world ki.ows very little, and cares to know little, because they belong to the humdrum level of humanity, are endowed with admirable qualities for fighting the battlo of life. As married women they fight this battle so well .that in numberless instances their clearsightedness, economy and energy have saved their families from ruin. Their capacity for business and every kind of industry suited to their physical strength has without doubt caused a great deal to be expected of them which they might have escaped had they been otherwise constituted. Thus the wives of small tradesmen very frequently do all tho bookkeeping in addition to their household duties; the wives of peasants work in the fields from sunrise to nightfall, and the wife of a mechanic or town laborer is expected to bring nearly as much money as himself to the house by dressmaking, artificial flower making, charing or some other occupation. But this is not all. It is upon his wife that the town workman relies when he is out of employment. With all women solicitude for their children is the great incentive to exertion. The Parisian workman often profits by this law of nature, and he would probably be worse off if he had no family'. It is no rare thing for a French beggar to urge as a reason for helping him that he has no wife to rely upon when he is out of employment.—Leisure Hour. time, with enough exercise given the parts of the face, wrinkles will become only a word in the dictionary, or there will be shops which supply them for lady physicians and politicians, as they supply gray hair switches for those who want them.

The Efforts of the League of American Wheelmen. A Proposition to Further Improvement* New Jersey'* Macadamised Road*— Road Making at South Ken-ingtoii, Rhode Island. Worth Wkile. A famous woman was one day talking over old and new times with a friend of her childhood and youth. ‘‘Y'ou must be a proud and happy woman,” said her old friend. “Your name is well known all over the country. Your words are read and pondered in hundreds of homes.” “That is pleasant, of course,” was the answer, “but I shall soon be forgotten. Let me tell you the one great satisfaction of my life, the only deed I have ever done which can be remembered with a perfect joy. “When I was makingmy first hard struggle in my profession here in the city my mother was living in aduU country village, trying to endure tho time until I could afford to have her with me. One day when I was going down to see her I bought some crocus bulbs in what seemed a fit of wild extravagance, and took them with me. “I planted them carefully and refuged to tell her what they were, exacting a promise that she would leave the ground untouched. At first she treated tho mystery as a joke; then she forgot all about it. Next spring, when the little village was all mud and desolation, my mother chanced to lookout one day, and saw a yellow flower in the yard. “She could not believe her eyes; she rubbed her spectacles and looked again. Without doubt it was a yellow flower, aud she put a shawl over her head and ran out to examine it. Next day the little bed was alive with purple, white and yellow, and the neighbors came flocking in to see tho flowers which had blossomed almost in snow. “Such a sight was never seen in the village before, aud my mother was the heroine of the hour. Through tho excitement of that blossoming time she actually forgot to write me. I believe it did her as much good as a trip to Europe. “She is not here now, but I would rather have given her that great pleasure than to be famous from one pole to the other.”— Youth’s Companion. Congregational. Eight new Congregational churches are in course of erection in Indiana. The annual meeting of the Congregational School and Publication society Was held in Boston last week. The report stated that 531 new Sunday schools were organized during the year. The receipts for the year were larger by $9,000 than in the preceding year. The total receipts of the American Congregational Home Missionary society for the year just closed were $071,000, which is $128,000 more than for the preceding war.

The church world is not al- How to Make Iced Tea. From the New Yo^k Star. How should iced tea be’made, then? I will tell you, and much good may it do you. In the first place, take Congo tea, commonly called English breakfast. Take the best quality. Do not use Japanese tea, for it is not drinkable to a well-regulated palate. Oolong is good, and so is Young Hyson, for those whose nerves eau stand green tea; but Congo has an especially agreeable flavor, iced. Having got your tea, the next thing is an earthen teapot—a black Betty is the bv L No metal pot brews tea as well as an earthen. Put the tea in the bottom of the pot, and pour boiling hot water upon it until the pot is nearly filled. Then let it steep a minute or two, but don't, don't let it boil. That is a fatal error. Boiling gives even to the best of tea a disagreeable, herby taste. As >oon as the steeping is done with, strain the liquor out of tho earthen pot into any convenient receptacle which has a tight lid, and put it into the refrigerator. In a few hours it will be ice cold, and eau be used as wanted. It. should be made fresh every day. A nice way of serving tea made and cooled iii this manner is in cups. with a slice of lemon floating on top. The Russians do this with hot tea. It is equally delicious with cold tea. Unless you feel that you must from long habit, don’t flavor iced tea with milk or sugar. It is the bitter flavor which you need. and which tends to quench the parched feeling of the palate and throat which is produced by hot weather. After a while that bitter flavor will become a desideratum, just as is the case with beer and ale. Made and drunk as I have described, iced tea is not a delusion and a snare, like the iced tea of restaurants, but a thing of beauty and a joy forever. Keeping House Wit Ii Cockroaches, Beetles, water bugs, etc., is not pleasant. The most effective and permanent remedy is—for two or three nights to sprinkle Rough on Rats dry powder unmixed, in, about and down the sink and drain pipe; scatter it well but thinly over the sink. First thing in the morning wash it all away down the drain pipe. when all the insects from garret to cellar will disappear. The secret of this is in the fact that wherever the bugs or insects may be during the day, they must go to the sinks for water during the night. They can’t stand Rough on Rats in their water. This is the quickest, most effective and satisfactory remedy. Rough on Rats being a poison, it should be used in this way only at night and washed away early in the morning. Another way is to mix a tablespoonful of Rough ou Rats with a half pound of brown sugar. Sprinkle it on rear of cupboard shelves or on plates, or on sheets ot paper placed high out of reach of children. Cut this out for directions. Woman’* Place in the Family. Woman was not created to be an ornament to man, nor to be his slave; for a woman Lo toil out her strength and life is as foolish as it is to idle them away. In the first place, if a man loves his wife tenderly and truly, he will take care of her; so, when she finds that he is putting the love of gain, the greed of w ealth, the hoarding up of the almighty dollar above her care and comfort, she may feel assured that he will not be sorely grieved when tho grass grows green above her. To be a wife and a housekeeper is enough for any woman —entirely too much if she be also a mother, because in this case every moment of her time will be occupied with worry and work. Ab soon as a business man finds himself busy from morning till night he cries out for a clerk. “By jove, now, I must have a clerk!” Then, presently, he must have a bookkeeper; then a stenographer, and soon. While, frequently, if you go to his house and pull aside the curtains you will find a pale, failed, patient wife, cooking, sweeping, washing, ironing, scrubbing, cleaning wood work and caring for two or three children. These are tile women who do not know where to draw the line between duty and brutality—for it is brutal for a man to expect his wife to work beyond her strength.—Kila Higginson in West Shore. Improving Our Talents. I heard a lady of wealth say iu reference to her daughter's education that she proposed to have her well educated, and then see if she had any especial talent and have that cultivated; she also intended to have her taught some useful art that would serve her iii case she should ever have to make her own living. I thought it was a very sensible woman who could feel aud reason in this way. If our girls and boys were educated with an eye to their future success in life, how much more successful the lives of many of them would be. The same lady (who by the way was taking her daughter to New York to school that she might have every advantage) said: “Due thiug I ani determined on, that is to have my daughter go to a cooking school and lx* taught all about housekeeping.” With all a woman’s accomplishments, if she is not a good housekeeper and cannot make her home neat and keep her table well appointed she h is failed in half her life's work.—Atlanta Constitution. To Purify the Sick Room. The utmost cleanliness is essential in a sick room. Water should always be at baud, and the sponge freely and frequently used. Everything offensive should be instantly removed. A little aromatic vinegar, or lavendar water, or other perfume, may be employed, according as they are grateful to the sick person, but these should never lie employed to disguise odors that would otherwise be offensive. To neutralize all unpleasant odors the following wash should be employed in every department of the sick room: Take an ounce of chlorate of lime and dissolve it in a gallon of water, or about ouo dram to a pint, and keep it closely corked. The floor, wood work and all parts of tho sick room may be sponged with this, with tho exception of metals and colored cottons or cotton clothes. Although the smell of this solution may at first be offensive, it will soon pass off, and leave the air of the apartment perfectly sweet and purified, it being at the same time perfectly harmless to the invalid.—New York Ledger. Daily Walk of a Woman. Middleport boasts of the champion lady pedestrian of the state. Miss Lizzie Schreiner lives at Middleport, two and one-quarter miles below The Telegraph office in Pomeroy. where she has been employed as acom-posit'*r for the past eight years. Every week day, v, in; rand summer, for the eight years she has walked to and from her work, with but six weeks’ rest. She works ten hours per day at her case. lier walks average twenty-seven miles per week through rain and sunshine, snow, mud and summer heat, and she frequently has to clamber around the bluffs to get by flooded districts. This gives her 1,464 miles p**r year, or 11,232 miles inthe eight years. Sub trading 162 miles for the six weeks she rested, she has 11,070 miles still to her credit. During the eight years she has actually performed 24.000 hours of labor, and has set about 19,630,000 ems of type. AY hen she began walking and working she was not enjoying good health, bi t now she is rosy cheeked and vigorous, and thinks no more of a jaunt of half a dozen miles than most ladies do of walking around a square in the city. —Cor. Cincinnati Enquirer. The Difference in tho Sexes. Girls are munchers from their babyhood. They are coaxed with comfits to do what boys are whipped for not doing. They play at tea parties before they eau talk. A boy runs away and goes in swimming, dries his hair in the sun and comes homo again as good as new. A girl surreptitiously helps herself to jam aud cookies and steals away somewhere for a picnic, and when her mother doses her for coiic at night and wonders what makes her so delicate she wants to be real naughty. A little girl’s pocket is a kind of larder full of sweets and goodies. A boy carries marbles and strings, or may be worms for bait and snails. At school or college, when a girl would be wildly dissipated, she gathers in her chums, corks up tho crack of the door and makes Welsh rarebits and taffy over a lamp chimney. When a man goes on a celebration ho wants something to drink; a woman's wildest revel, most reckless bender, is some kind of an eating match.— New Y'ork Sun. A Tribute to a Noble Woman. There is no surer sign of a more liberal civilization and a wiser world than the perception that the bounds of legitimate womanly interest and activity are not to bo set by men as heretofore to mark their own convenience and pleasure. The tradition of the lovely incapacity of woman reflects either the sensitive apprehension or tho ignoble abasement of man. I have heard Margaret Fuller keep a company of young persons on a journey constantly enthralled by her racy wit and humorous intelligence. A scholar, a critic, a thinker, a teacher, a queen of conversation, above all a person of a delicate insight and sympathy, the wisest of friends, of the utmost feminine refinement of feeling and of dauntless spiritual courage, she seems to me still the figure of woman iii the Nineteenth century, which was the title of her best known paper.— George William Curtis. Something Happened. It is little wonder that many country people are greatly impressed with the dangers of city travel. There seems no good reason why estimable people from tho country, who certainly have more regard for the truck drivers and other autocrats who practically control tho city streets than do their city cousins, should be singled out to be knocked down, trampled on and flattened out by wheels. An old lady from the country was crossing the bridge a few days ago. She had dodged tho numerous dangers that menaced her along Park row, had found out that tho bridjjb car was sure to stop at Brooklyn, and in comparative relief from her torturing fears had settled into a seat. She was evidently feeling pretty safe as she started down tho stairs on the Brooklyn side. She was just ten steps from the bottom when a young man carrying a large valise reached tho top. He stepped on a piece of orange peel; out went his feet, up went his hands and down the stairs bounded the big bag. It struck the good old country lady, threw her off her feet before she knew what had struck her, and carried her like a roller under a log to the bottom. There she lay with the bag resting under her head like a pillow. “There,” gasped the good soul when she recovered her breath, “I am g’ad it is over. I knew when I started out this morning that something was bound to happen to me. I’m glad it didn’t kill me, anyway.” And she went her way, lame but thankful.— New Y’ork Times. Making a Keg Into a Seat. A plush sofa cushion placed on the top of a keg turned it into a very comfortable seat. The keg is covered with blue denim, or Kentucky jeans, laid on in box plaits and tacked at the top and bottom. A double plaiting at the bottom hides where the first is fastened down, and the top is finished with a fringe made of rope. Handles of rope are fastened on at either side. Tho top is also furnished with a rope handle, so that it may easily be removed, for the inside of the keg is nicely painted, to be used as a receptacle for sewing materials. The cushion is made of blue denim, bordered with dark blue plush, and is finished with a rope cord and tassels. A very pretty seat of this kind can be made by simply covering the keg with figure cretonne, using it for the cushion as well, and dispensing with the fringe.—New York Journal.    _ Mine. ModjesUa’a Temper. Mme. Helene Modjeska never allows her temper to get the better of her. “I cannot afford to get angry,” she says. “A woman at my time of life must economize her emotions and her nerves if she wants to hold the remnants of her j^mth and beauty. Any one can impose on the gentle woman. Laundresses forget to bring back her lingerie and lace edged handkerchiefs, light lingered chambermaids steaLher shell hairpins, bell boys impose on her and modistes charge her for enough to costume a giantess.”—New Y'ork World. Value of Massage. Massage is worth every dollar that it costs for the nervous relief it gives. Many women never know for years what it is to feel rested and soothed till they come under the hands of a masseur. Every motion is aforethought and of purpose, and the quiet, practiced touch tells on the fretted nerves like the brush of an angel’s wing feather. The massage alone is enough to take twenty years off a woman’s age, but when the wrinkles are deep, after the penetrating ungent has had time to nourish the skin a little, cupping is employed. The apparatus is a glass nip, with rubber bulb attached, which when pressed creates-a va-cuirfh under it, the skin is drawn into the cup and the suction takes the creases out. The wrinkle treatment is harmless enough if one wants to bother with it. Taken in In the carefully constructed nurseries of New Y'ork not a corner is tolerated or an angle permitted to go unturned against which baby eau do himself bodily injury. The room itself is rounded into an oval or octagon, tho window ledges slope, the door knobs are beyond reach and close with a spring, and the furniture is bent birch, bird’s eye maple or some light finished wood, with every post, side and rung rounded like a spindle. There is no finer example of what organization can do than the League of American Wheelmen. A few years ago local ordinances in hundreds of places kept bicycles from tho streets and relegated tho cyclist to the realm of nuisances. The league was formed and the matter was carried to the courts. Before long decisions were obtained from several supremo courts that bicycles were vehicles in the eyes of the law, and the wheelmen obtained the same rights and privileges accorded to wagons. Any one who knows what the J) re judice 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 victory, and will not bo sket tical of the announcement that the league is quite likely to be successful in the fight which it is now carrying on for the improvement of roads—a question only less vital to tho wheelmen titan the other, and a question, moreover, which has as much importance for the public at large as for the riders of bicycles. The league, when it began the battle for bettor roads, went directly to the legislatures; but it soon found that before the representatives of the people could pass laws taxing their constituents for such an object all opposition among those constituents must be removed. Surprising as it undoubtedly is, the opposition was very emphatic from the very class which would most be benefited. Tho farmers, who suffer more than anyone else from the effects of bad roads, cried out most loudly against any improvement. As soon as tho league found this out tactics were changed, and a campaign of education begun. This is being ardently carried on by the wheelmen in two ways. First, a bureau has been established which has in charge the distribution and compilation of road improvement literature. Arguments, statistics and directions are sent thence all over the land by thousands. Another branch is a lecture bureau. It is incumbent upou this bureau to find good speakers in every locality who are well informed on the subject of road improvement. Whenever meetings of farmers in the country or of hoards of trade and like organizations in cities are to bo held these speakers are sent to them with instructions to deliver brief, interesting and informing addresses on road improvement. it seem impossible that these measures-, so vigorously carried out, can fail to r*sult in g- od. Mr. George Ii. Bidwell and Mr. Isaac B. Potter, of New Y'ork civy, were the originators of the road improvement project on the part of the L. A. W. They began and won the fight for tho opening of Central park to the wheelmen, and after it was over took up the question of better roads. Mr. Bidwell spoke the other day of an interesting experiment which hasbeen tried in several counties in New Y'ork state under his direction and which is particularly convincing. Carefully ascertain the horse population of a county in winch the roads are bad. Then av •-age the quantity of road work—the av* rage weight pulled—which a horse can do. Then take a county where the roads are good, carry out the same plan and compare the results. Mr. Bidwell says that these experiments show that in New Y'ork state good roads double the pulling power of horses, thus reducing by one-half the number of horses necessarily bought and supported in order to do a given amount of work. The saving in wear and tear of vehicles is hardly less. In New York state a roads improvement assoi l ;t i* ai has been formed, which has 25,000 members. There is not even a majority of wheelmen among them; they are men in all walks of life on which good roads have an influence. A permanent organization was effected la*t spring at a convention in Utica, and the association will give its support to any wise legislation having road improvement in view. vs that the road reform-»extravagant requests, that macadam or tel-ford roads are impracticable in many sections of the country because the material for making them could only be obtained at great expense. But lie thinks that in states like New Y’ork, for instance, one great artery of trade could be constructed, such as a macadam road from New Y'ork to Buffalo. Tins should be of good width, carefully built and should, in his opinion, bo a state institution. He argues that such a highway would have a good moral effect on every cross road in the state. Tho people would see how much easier their loads were hauled over the hard, smooth state road, and would improve tho minor thoroughfares, lie also thinks that in the improvement of roads lies the solution of the convict labor question. Most men are not anxious to break stone and he argues that in putting the convicts at road making tho number of honest men who would be deprived of employment by convict labor would be reduced to a minimum. The wheelmen are a class, and can hardly expect sympathy from other classes unless their interests are identical. That this is the case in the matter of road improvement is patent, and that the wheelmen are earning tho thanks of these other classes can perhaps be more easily shown them by reference to last winter's gubernatorial messages. Memorials were submitted to a dozen different governors setting forth the economy and necessity of good roads, and so sensible were the arguments presented that each of the governors responded by calling the attention of the state legislatures to the subject. The proposition has been made that I the league be opened to everybody, whether wheelmen or not, for associate membership. The present membership 1 of the league is 20,000. If this plan were carried out the membership could easily be increased to 150,000 and the road re form movement pushed with correspondingly greater expedition. out passes. Eight of the fifteen freeholders favored laying out two or three roads running north and south, taking in the market towns and making it easy for the farmers to get their truck to the larger towns, Ae Paterson and Hackensack. This was opposed by the other members of the board, instructed to do so by their constituents, who did not seem to favor improvements in the farming districts, being satisfied to leave the roads as they were on the ground that roads that were good enough for the <5hl Jersey farmers of fifty years ago are good enough for their successors. It is worthy of note that when a community once gets a taste of macadam it wants more; in fact, it becomes enthusiastic for more. Tho points in favor of macadamized roads may be summed up briefly as follows: First—Safety. Fewer accidents occur on good macadamized roads than on the ordinary roughly constructed country roads. Second—Economy, both as regards horseflesh and wear and tear of vehicles and harness. No statistics are available to show precisely how much longer a wagon or harness or horse will last on macadamized roads than on ordinary roads, but the percentage must be largely in favor of macadam, as any one can see. Third—Speed. Farmers who have to transport the products of their farms by teams long distances to market fully understand how much quicker time can be made and how much heavier loads can be drawn on macadamized roads than can be drawn on ordinary country roads. Like a chain, the country road must be gauged by the condition of its pioorest portion. While a farmer may be able to draw a heavy lead for three-fourths or perhaps seven-eighths of tho distance lie may require to go over a country road, there may lx* a spit of a few hundred feet where hLs horses would not be able to pull such a load, and, therefore, he is compelled to estimate the capacity of his team by this poor sp>t. Fanners, many of them, raise or try to raise trotters, but as a rule have no good place for exercising them. A SECRET SOCIETY TALK. What is Going on in Lodge Room and Castle Hall. Frederick O.

I. In a letter recently written by Senator Lanphear, engineer of tho macadam road committee of South Kingston, R. I., he said: “First, of course, tile road must bo graded or the surface of the old road must be brought to some true grade before the road metal or broken stone is applied. In the town of South Kingston the town council establishes the grade of the roads, which grade is shown on profile maps recorded by the town clerk of the town and kept on file in his office. This work alone is of more benefit than usually considered. Nearly all our village and country roads have no established grade, the hills and hollows being filled or 1< overed as each successive roadmaster thinks fi r tho best. How often have we seen earth carted np hill to make the hills higher, and sometimes silt taken from the foot uf the hill to do it with. “In going over profiles of old, unimproved highways, and before any grades had been established, it has seemed singular that little improvements in the grade had nut been made before, as often the taking off but little from one hill top and taking the mat* rial to lower ground changes the grade from 12 to 3 per cent. Also. Ion stretches of undulating roads are c nip! loly changed by simply taking off the Iii Flier surfaces and filling the lower or, . “In putting on the road metal we follow the ti ual specifications used in building macadam roads, using stones not over three inches in any diameter and keeping out all sand and silt. The surface is finally compacted with the heavy steam roller or corrugated horse roller, all low places which come in it by rolling are filled up to grade, surplus materials carted off and the work is finally accepted by the committee and paid for by the town. The result derived is satisfactory to tho taxpayer, of the town; the usually conservative dement, the owners of many farms, are almost a unit in favor of extending the ystem to reach remote parts of the t* avn. Of course it costs large sums of money to make these improvements, but there seem- little unwillingness to furnish it when the result is so satisfactory.” Pearly Smoke for Beauty’s Hair.
