With the return, of the balmy fpring I Jays our read,- have become again as I solid as I,rick, but uo man who has ever J seen tbeui in the winter will fur a mo | incut think tliey will be ever thus. The j old adage lis." (t somewhat uftor this j style, "In time of peace prepare for j war," so too our plans should be laid for iuiprjvcmeot of roads before the winter oomes a"um. Almost every one is clear yof the opinion that something otiylit to be done, but 'what, is not so clear. To our mind the first step to. ward road improvement must be a change |D tho system of working public roads. This is manifest frum the faot that it is a , complete failure. Opin ons may differ !as to why, but all will agree that the system ef keeping roads in repair now iu ' vogue is a complete failure, common ' sense then would say change. Hat | changes of any kind will meet with op , position. Tin: Legislature of 1885 pass ! Ed a law that authorised certain changes, j buttery unwisely allowed the Juiiiiees j of the l'cace to say whether it should be 1 adopted iu Franklin county or not, in i ftead of making the law absolute. The I Justice.'! met and one of them made a j speech the substance of which wa- that | i lie always worked the roads until he bo ! caoie forty-five and every boil - ought to do so, of it would be unjust to him, and the result was that only one UIHQ voted fot tho law We suppose that uo changes couid ever bo uiauo following the theory of the gontlemaa above mentioned unless we could dispose of all men who were read froo. The present system is obsolete. It has beeu in use now for a century or more, with very slight changes. The North Carolina of to-day is so different from the North Carolina ,if a eentury or even a quarter of a eentury since that nothing scarcely remains the satue, al most all of our laws have been changed materially silica tho present system of working roads was inaugurated. I The present system is unjust. It lays the burden on those who usually havo least use for roads. Whenever, thero is anything said about working roads by taxation a strong disapproval is ut ouoe expressed. Now let us sec how this present plan works, six days during the year is tho limit ol tho law, put this at three dollars. road tax then on each man is three dollars pci aanuui. 1 Now our constitution requires taxos on I poll to be equal to taxes on S3OO. Then to make the matter equal property would hnvo to pay one per cent., but proporty owners say this is exorbitant, unjust and uurenv.nable, they say fairness domnnds SB.OO oft the poll aqd nothing on prop erty. ** « say a ebasgo must be made. 1 —Franklinton Dvtpaich. - COAL BURNING LOCOMOTIVES. The Atlantic Coast Liue will put coal burning locomotives on the W. & W. Railroad next fall. Six new engines ito buru coal have been ordered, and it is intended, also, before the wintor trav el begins, to have all the looomotivos now in arc oil tho line changed from wood to eoal burners. The contemplat ed change is a measure of economy. Goal, it is olaimed, is cheaper than wood and time M saved in handling. It is calculated that an- cngitu will average fifty mibs on one ton of coal, and as the tender will hold nbout five tons it will be easily seen w icre the economy is. The coal tamers will be put on in time for winter travel and freight traffic, | which, it 19 anticipated, will be much I larger than die travel arid traffic last I year.—Wilmington Star. PKHJUEY. I •• j —,K' nillhl»oro Rrc»rlri-. In olileu times pcrjwrjr puniiheJ uiost severely, but a* tinio pu&ieij nuil in proportion to the relaxation of pim. amt tho ddtestaWo oriuie of periory ■ted, until to day swearing falsely t as common as swearing tu the until, if uut morn so. No one nUo gives his attention to the proMediuga of our ooui I, and will closely observe tho esani : .Datun of wit ticasts and particularly thot£ win.esses who aro intoreited as to tho result, but will be forcibly imprcif jd w'.iji 'lie total disregard of truth. To escape punish ment due to violated luw and gain the point at issue stems to be paramount to everything elso aud the mot general way they adopt to avoid the truth wbeii conlrouted upon oross cxaiuinatiou with asearchiug question, is by saying, "I don't recollect" or "I don't iciucraber," while to all iptastioUK favorable to their side, their memory is perfectly clear and thoy can readily tell all tliey know and more too. Wo do not complain at tho severity of the punishment, it may be milficicnt, but we do oempkiu at the total ueglcot of the Courts aud Solicitors, and all othoi /rood citizens, in not bringing this class ofrnseuls to punishment. When it becomes apparent that a witness, as to a malerial fact, is swearing falsely, he should be immediately prayed iu to cus tody and required to gtvo security for bis appoarancc to answer to a charge of perjury. If a tew of these gentry wore iealtwith pretty roughly it might be a terror to others. Therefore, we call upon Judges aud Solicitors, to make an "xample of some of them. It would have a wholesome influence among rascals. THE HUMAN 31TE. Physicians agree that the poison oon veyed by human teeth ia one of the,most annoying that tli'y have to deal wiili. OO'J of them writes tu the M&liail Reg ister: "I havo uador my atteuiiou se vere and most complicated cases ol blood poisouing, iu whiiiU too patient had but slightly abraded tho band in tin course of a fiirht by striking the knuckles agaiust the teeth of his oppo nent. I havo knowu bauds thus pois uued only saved from amputation by tho application of all the resources of soicncc." THE CHARACTERISTICS WHICH .SURROUND OLD AGE.

After many years the father settled on a farm adjoining the wife. The cbildien grew up together, uever nt all knowing that '.hey were related, the pareuts keeping their secret "veil.
