in Congress. Several times they have
been allowed a special committee to

Natural Bridge, on Pine Creek, in

It spans the creek at a height of about
200 teet, and the walls of the canon
rise jibove it on either side 700 or 800
feet, and on one side form a perpen

six feet through. About the center of
the arch is a hole large enough to ad
mit the body of a man, and through
which one can look down into the crys
tal pool of water 200 feet below.
The dike which forms the bridge
extends in a sweeping curve un the
right side of the stream and, together
with the bridge proper, affords a sur
face area of about a hundred acres of
fertile laud, which David Gowuu has
converted into a fine farm. A sonn??
issues from the right side of the canon
at a height to admit of water being
easily conducted to any portion of the
farm, and the volume is great enough
to fill a ditch four feet wide and two
feet deep, andto irrigate much more
land than is available for cultivation.
The climate at the bridge is exceed
ingly equable, being warmer ia summer
and much milder in winter than tnat
of the surrounding country, and to this
fact is ascribed the wonderful variety
of vegetable growth, numbering some
two hundred and fifty species of trees,
shrubs, vines and plants. Tlie vicinity
abounds in numerous fossils ahd shells,
and wherever moisture percolates
through the calcarous rock beautiful
stalactites are formed. Underneath

of which have-never been explored, and

The danger is not so much in the
temporary advantage they may gain,
for this can be remedied, as in the fact
that these actions are not simply the
actions of a few men in the Congress
or on the bench, but are indorsed and
applauded by the entire strength of the
party behind them. Because Ingalls,
fudge-advocate of Kansas miljtia, in his
hatred of the South is anxious to ruin
that fair country he receives the hearty
endorsement and plaudits of his con

else so much as the discomfiture of the

Then there was an excessive shrug
and a cynical smile from her listeners,
one of whom said:
"Oh, but you've only leeu married a
short while. It's all very pretty now
if it would only last."
"Well," hopefully, "it has lasted

I should prefer a widower, well off and

be about forty years old, and must
have been a devoted husband to his

the vagaries of youth. He has sowed
wild, oats, and anchored steadfastly his
shin of love until it was blown away
bv the wind of eternity. He has
known life's greatest joys and deepest
sorrows. He knows how to appreciate
profoundly the love of a woman, and,
having learned many lesson's in woman
nature, he will neither be too exacting
nor uncomprehending of her little
fancies and foibles. But I'd rather

Pope on Roads.
Syracuse, N. Y. Col. Albert A
Popeof Boston, to-day, by request,
delivered an address on the subject of
roads before the Board of Trade. Col.
Pope said in substance:
Good roads are unquestionabiYcheap-
er to maintain and use -than poor ones.
it is sat to say that a perfect road,
once laid down will cost far less to
keep in repair from year to year, and
at the end of 30 years will Tiave re

than a poorer road costing half as
much and improperly made.
A properly built highway, construct
ed upon any one of the systems a -cepted
as the best for their Various
purposes and locations, must necessari
ly be made with a solid and firm foun
dation, effectually separating the sur-
race trom the sou below.
It should be thoroughly drained, and
provided with yater-courses at the
side, and a hard and compact surface,
as smooth as the nature of its comjx;
sition will admit of, and freefrom
mud, diist and loose stones.
To reach this degree of perfection,
the best obtainable materials must be
used. It requires good labor, ample
time iu construction, and above all, the
science and skill of a professional en
gineer, whose busines is road making.
Certain kinds of roads are accepted
as -the best under certain conditions.
For the country, it is essential to make
use of such material .as nature furnish

Country roads need be no wider than
is absolutely necessary for the accom
modation of the traffic and travel that
will come upon them. In many-places
a road wide enough for a singlerteam is
all that is necessary, yvith suitable
turnouts, for it is unwise and expensive
to attempt to maintain a country road- j
