The maples are used in ini more extensively for shade tree purposes than all other kinds of trees combined. There are four kinds used. The silver-leaf and red maple, commonly called the soft maples, are most frequently planted on account of their rapid growth. Their use should be discontinued because they are subject to the deadly attack of several common insect pests and they grow long slender branches which frequently break off when loaded with ice. The Norway maple has recently been introduced but is to low-headed to make a desirable street tree. Our native sugar maple is far the best kind of maple to plant along a street unless a small tree is desired. It will adapt itself to all kinds of soil, except a wet and undrained one. However, it grows best on a moist or dry, porous soi’. The sugar maple has as yet been able to resist its insect enemies.

' Those who have not been on the rock roads can not begin to imagine the serious condition they are in since the ground has thawed out. The extremely hard winter just passed has been almost too much for the much traveled road between Winslow and Petersburg. The ground froze to a depth below the rock and when the tljaw came made the bed under the rock soft and the road is one soft mass. The road from Winslow to Petersburg' is almost ruined. The rock road commissioners áre working on the road but this road will almost require rebuilding before it will again be in the condition it was. This is the most traveled road in southern Indiana. The commissioners are making an effort to get the road repaired as fast as possible* remains were brought to Feters-    in    Evansville    Friday burg Thursday.

This meeting is intended for ministers, deacons, Sunday school teachers and Christian workers of all denominations. The public invited. in the old log house in the neighborhood of the Gladish school house for many years. They did their own house work and Sunday about one o’clock while they were eating dinner they discovered the house was on fire. Jack noticed it first and said to Steve that they had better get out as the roof was then about ready to fall in. Jack went out the back door and thought Steve followed him but when he was out of the house he discovered that Steve had gone into the front room either in an effort to go out the front door or to get a little change that he had in the front room. He went to the window but before he could get the window up and render any .assistance to him the roof fell in on him and he heard him scream. The house was a log house and made a v’ery hot fire and nothing was left of the old man except the charred body. His head w’as burned off as were his arms and legs and hardly enough w’as left to tell that the remains had ever been a body. As soon as the fire burned down so that friends could, the remains were taken out and Undertaker Brenton took charge of what was left. Jack Elder, who is the older of the two, was nearly prostrate over the unfortunate accident. The fire caught from the flue and was not discovered until the top was nearly ready to fall in. The household goods were all destroyed. Both old men were hard of hearing and their eyes were poor and they did not see the ap-roaching danger, The whole community was shocked at the tragedy. Stephen Elder was born in Washington county, Kentucky, April 12, 1838 and would have been 74 years old this April. He came to this county when a boy and has lived near Winslow practically all his life. He was an intelligent man and a Christian gentleman. He attended strictly to his own business at all times and was everybody’s friend. He was always a democrat and kept posted on the happenings of the day. But he was better posted on the bible and liked best to talk of that. He was never married. The funeral service was conducted Monday afternoon at Flat Creek, the remains being laid to rest in the Plat Creek cemetery. Coroner 8am Fettinger and his clerk Monroe Spraggins held the inquest Monday morxiing.
