One ran- hardly read a paper pub lished In North Carolina .today with out noticing articles favorable to road, betterment, both as to town? and country. There seems, to be a popular wave a II*" over the State ' in this direction^ Our people have- it ?. last wakened, to the necessity of good roads. The citizens reaWze one fact, that gocd- loads and Streets play a .conspicuous .part towards growth Good streets in Washington Is a question every citizen should favor: I all can rally around this measure, irj i respective of party affiliations. No creed or faction should creep In, but all political bitterness and dissension ean -be eliminated and all personal', animosities 'shelved in promoting this necessity. No. citizen otf Wash I net on, who ha* the- welfare and fu ture of -the. city at heart can oppose ' ?treet imjirovements. * If Washing ton is to be abreast of the times. If her reputation for progress Is to con tinue in the outside world, the elec tion rai ried~-nOt only bv -i small margin,' but by a good, saf< majority. a community can L. to stab { measure. O'.ir record is at stake, our future totters - and KTayyers: ? how can we say to the other towftg of North Carolina, you do what you please as to ci^lc betterment, r.s fu~ u*. we propose to remain in the' old rut as we have for the la^t quarter of a cen tury.

The sky was cloud leu. and a strong gale blew from the north west. 80 piercingly cold. waa the day Father was kept very busy through out the forenoon. Finally hut a single Job remained to be done before Old Frank could be put In the barn and father go to a belated dinner. Some one wanted a loau of ice. The place where lather ^ient*for hi* BB WEB assarted b^the ice-harvest ers. The river here stretfched away for a mile or two to the. northwest, and down this stretch th^ wind, un hfnderedseemed sjffi?t to double Its speed and keenness, ~ ? ; The bank sloped gently down to the edge of the water. Here father tiCck of the ice, and left his horse standing, while he prepared to cut and load the was hut? a- lew inches jhiak, ?" where he began ?plrttlng Oir etas or it with his axe. He was making rapid headway ' with his work, and had secured and loaded nearly aa much as Be JPlhted, ; when a considerably larger piece split off than be had anticipated, including the portion on which be stood. Taken by surprise, he was precipitated Into the water.-which at this point was ten feet or more In depth, with; a strong current. -- ? <d. He was clothed to the point of clum siness. He wore a heavy overooat. with a strap or belt tied round It, a heavy cap. and a pair of thick Bheep skin mittens. He came up somewhat 'f&rther out In the Btream than where he had gone down, and near thinner Ice. He soon time he was fortunate enough to get a new hold before being drawn under. While working thus he drew nearer, partly by design, to the river-bank, where, the faithful old dray-horse was \ standing.

Tile old horse backed a few steps In a slow and de liberate mwnpr Father watch him with keen anxiety, leat he back too far, and dray, horse and all .be' precip'tated into the icy stream. But hia fears were groundless, for when the dray was a a neqf the edge of the ice as father dared risk having It the edge of the thin ice, his mittens, freezing 'f&st lUUBOyr Then he foun4 that he could maln '???? ywmuu mi' Ml In definite period, although the strength of the current constantly drew? his legs down-stream and up under the Ice to which he waa clinging. To have clung thus until help could arrive would have leen a comparative ly easy matter under- ordinary circum stances. \m. ^ . But althougb-he was_ln plain sight of the flouring mills on- each side of the river, and within possible hailing distance of the bridge which spanned the river below the dam, and in sight of perhapB a dozen horses, no person was visible.
