It is n curious and interesting fact that to Tiffny of the world s greatest min have been us sparing of words As they Lave been prodigal of it is doubtful if there Ever shed a More taciturn Man than the famous commander of the austrian try during Tho thirty years War. It a said of that lie lived in an atmosphere of and never uttered a word that was not absolutely necessary nor would he permit others to speak in his presence More Thau was essential. One of Bis chamberlains was hanged for waking a Wallenstein with needless noise. His servants were so Many mutes not daring to open their Lipa in his presence and he was sur Roux us a Pairis. And the approaches to his House were barricaded by chains to preserve him from the least disturb Ance. In comparison with Wulle Stcin it has been recorded Diogenes would have been a Chatterbox and William the silent a brawler. But silence is a characteristic of Many of the world s most famous soldiers. Napoleon boasted that in his dealings Frith non he never wasted a. Word and made monosyllables answer most Pur poses. But nothing escaped his eyes and he could compress More within a sentence than most men could convey in a Quarter of an hour. The great Duke of Marlborough receiving reports from Bis generals would produce his watch and say. Give you a and it was Likely to go Bard with the officer who did not observe the limitation. To his staff the Duke of Wellington was Al ways More or less a Sphinx. A nod or a shake of the head was often the Only response they could get from him and when once he was asked what be considered the Best equipment of a minder he answered a Long head and a silent von Moltke almost rivalled Avalle Stcin in taciturn Ity. He never opened his Mouth if a gesture would suffice and when the news was brought to him that the French had declared War to Bis time and when be arrived the King in a great passion at having been i Kepi Amisey Ana i at him Wjk the most indecent manner on which the Bishop very coolly said he be permitted to withdraw As he pen lived his majesty was not then in a fit state of mind 10 receive Tho Sacra ment and should be ready to attend on lome future Day when be hoped to find his majesty in a better state of Prepa ration.

At some Dir Tant period no Indian youths pursuing the pleasures of the wore led to a Remote and in frequented pan of the Forest where being and hungry they sat Down to rest Thi ii eyes and to dress Chi in Ivilue in univ Luu i employed the spirit of the Woods attracted As it is supposed by the in usal and Savory smell of to Venison approached them in the form of a Beautiful female and seated herself beside them. The youths awed by the presence of so Superior a being and struck with gratitude for the condescension which she had shown them in becoming their guest presented to her in the most respectful manner a share of their repast which to was pleased to accept and upon which she regaled with seeming satisfaction. The repast being finished the female spirit thanked them cd Dhilly for their attention and informal them that if they would return to the same place after the revolution of twelve Moons they would find some thing which would recompense their kindness disappeared from their sight. The youths having watched tiie revolving Moons and having returned at the appointed time found that upon the place on which the right Arm of the goddess had reclined an ear of in Dian Corn had sprung up.

This last feature of the proces.-, disc Overy of which incidental to the orig Inal use of Oil As a oust layer has brought it to the attention of the entire country. In the West the first treatment of Oil is charged to the construction account. Coal in folklore.

Water is the most destructive agent to a Road and yet if a few simple principles Are followed it can be easily dealt with s w. 0. Excl Ridge. Assistant director of the Bureau of Public Road in quiries. Earth is More susceptible to tiie action of water and More easily dissolved and moved by it than any other Road material and for this Rea son too lunch attention can hardly be Given to the drainage of roads. Drain age alone will often change a bail Road into i of. The other band the Best Road May quickly go to ruin for Lack of drainage. Most country roads Are too Flat on top to shed water. Indeed a great Many of them Are not Only Flat but concave the Center being the lowest part in other their crowns Are inverted. The sides of the roads Are often Square shoulders which obstruct the water in its passage to the Side drains and As a result the water lies on the surface until it is absorbed by the material or to l Aat v Lowed to stand in the travelled Way until the material softens and yields to the Impact of the horses feet and tiie action of the wheels of the vehicles. The holes and ruts rapidly increase in number and size Wagon after Wagon sinks deeper Anil deeper until the Road bcc.oinc5 b us. To important of drainage has been emphasized in the statement that the three prime essentials to Sood roads Are first Drain air second better Drain age third to Best drainage on open or pervious soil surface Drain age in connection with heavy Rollins is usually in to Saiu factory the slope is Good and the to Retlic is not to heavy but for the impervious alluvial Anil Clayey soils Subi Rainal o is sometimes r.cf04-Ary. With heavy tray Rains freezes and thaws Tho surface of any dirt Road is liable to be completely destroyed and in this Case the Only remedy is a consolidated mass or crust of gravel or broken Stone a roof to keep out and off Tho water.
