The Sand hauled 011 the driveway of the River Bridge has not been a Frank failure neither has it been wholly a Success. That it served a Good purpose in preventing horses from slipping during the two or three Rains that have occurred since if was placed 011 the Bridge no one will deny but at the same time the exp a raiment has proven that Sand on the Arco Resina cd blocks is an unstable thing Apt to he blown away by the wind. When the last rain occurred about one Liaf of the drive Way was practically Bare and persons in crossing the Bridge were not Able at All times to Avail themselves of the Protection at forded by the Sand. What the wind left undone the last rain accomplished and front one end of the Bridge to the other the Sand now forms a Muddy Deposit washed Down near the Eastern sidewalk. The Experiment Lias shown that Sand is a pretty Good thing to keep horses from slipping but that it requires some labor to keep it on the right spot. If tin vet Deposit of Sand were now shovelled Back Over the driveway it might serve a very useful purpose during a month or so. Now that freezing weather is nearly duo the efficiency of the Sand might be materially increased if it were reinforced with some other Gritty material. A few Wagon loads would suffice to give the Slippery blocks a Safe coating that might remain All Winter. He who needs constant direct will never win life a big prizes
