New York New Law.
After several yean of agitation and
discussion the Siale of New York baa a
road law which presents a comprehen
sive plan for the improvement of rural
highways, says the New York Sun. It
provides that any board of supervisors
mar adopt a resolution declaring that
public Interest demands the Improve
ment of a certain piece of highway net
located in a city or village, and upoa a
petition of the owners of a majority of
the lineal feet of proierty fronting up
on such a highway they must adopt
such a resolution. A copy of this reso
lution is then transmitted to the State
Engineer, who Is to Atennlne whether
the piece of highway Indicated la of
sufficient public Importance to receive
State aid. If so, he ia to have maps,
plans and specifications for the work
and estimates of the cost made and
transmit copies to the Board of Super
visors. The Supervisors, with these facta and
figures before them, may then adopt
second resolution declaring that such a
highway shall be Improved or may re
fuse to go any further with the mutter.
This plan was adopted so as to preserve
the principle of home rule to the coun
ties of the State, to make it impossible
that any county should be compelled, if
unwilling, to Improve any portion of Its
highways and to prevent any county
from undertaking the work until It had
all the facta and figures before It
If a county dosires merely to know
how much It will cost to Improve a cer
tain piece of highway, It need only
adopt the first resolution and get the
plans and the estimate of the cost free
of charge. Then It can refuse to go any
further. If it chooses, after ascertain
ing the facts, to adopt a second resolu
tion, It may, but cannot lie compelled to
Ao so. If the Supervisors adopt the
second resolution, they must transmit
a copy of It to the Slate Engineer, who
advertises for bids for th work. If
no responsible bid Is made within his
estimate, he must make a new estimate
and transmit It to the Board of Super
visors, and If the board then adopts a
new resolution, based upon the new es
timate, declaring that nevertheless such
'highway shall be Improved, the State
Knglneer mum advertise again for bids,
as before. When a responsible bid
within bis estlmat Is made, the State
Knglneer awards the contract, but if
the town or county desires to do the
work itself. It has a preference over all
lOach Board of Supervisors has, under
the general highway law, the power to
elect a county engineer. If It has elect
ed such an officer, ths State Engineer
must act through him, If It has not, he
must himself supervise ths perform
ance of the contract, When ths work
Is completed, he must draw a warrant
upon the State Treasurer for one-half
the cost of the work and certify the
other half to the Board of Supervisors,
which must levy 35 per cent, of the
whole cost of the work upon the county.
The other 15 per cent. Is payable In one
of two ways vlr If the Board nf Su
pervisors adopted ths Irst resolution
for the Improvement without a petition
from the adjoining owners, tbt Board
of Supervisors roust levy ths 15 per
cent upon the town in which the im
proved highway Is. If the first resolu
tion was adopted after such a petition,
the Board of Supervisors must levy ths
15 per cent upon the property-owners
on the Improved highway.
The act further provides that im
provements of highways shall be taken
up In the order In which the final reso
lutions are received hy tha Slate Engi
neer, but h shall uot nnd-ruke any
work In excess of the appropriation
made by the Legislature for ths pur
pose from year to year, Ths appropria
tion made to start ths werk was $50,--000.
This amounts to a tax of about
11-1,000 of a mill on each dpUar of a
'scssnd valuation In the State. The first
counties to apply will bt the first
served. It Is expectad that ths nest
Legislature will appropr.ate at Uaat
$250,000 as the Ulaie's share of ths ex
pense for Improving highways next
After a highway la Improved tha ad
joining owners must pay thslr highway
taxes la money, as provided under tha
general highway law, which permit
such highway tax as to be commuted for
cash at one-half tha regular rates. Tha
act provides that ths Stats Engineer
must collect Information relative to the
public highways and glvt to all offi
cers having the cars of roads, whether
Improved or not, such Information free.
He must furnish thorn plana and direc
tions for the Improvement of roada and
bridges free of coot when requested by

Debts of 'Jwenty-two Years.
A case of rather remarkable cotnmer
clal honesty has Just come to light In
1S75 one of Sprlugfleld's well-known
shoe dealers found himself so embar
rassed by depreciation In value of stock
and the difficulty la collecting accounts
that he failed, and made a compromise
with bis creditors of fifty cents on the
dollar. After twenty-two years the mer
chant now considerably over 70 yeara
old, has settled all these old claims In
full, paying the balance unpaid at that
time, amounting to several thousand
dollars. There was no claim oa him
other than that of his conscience. All
his creditors bad signed a paper ac
knowledging their satisfaction, and, in
fact, a large number of the original pa
pers bad been destroyed, so that the
merchant had to settle in accordance
with the figures he had in his posses
sion, paying over money In some coses
to helra, or to aurvlvlug partners who
knew nothing or had nothing to show
of the original transaction. The con

During the whole of her long life, in
the midst of public business which has
dally become more voluminous and ex
acting, the queen has never entirely
abandoned the pursuits which were the
pleasure and relaxation of her earliest
years. Men lion has been made of her
practice of music and of her instruc
tors, and here It may be noted that
within the last fifteen years her maj
esty has sung with Slgnor Toatl, as at
an earlier period she sang with La-Mh-Ik'

extracts from the queen's Journals
which have from time to time been
made public, It will have been noted
how coiidtantly she mentions that she

feet, and the little Bolivia was able to

A gentleman living in a large country

chased a small property and enlarged
the house without Interfering with the
grounds, which had been very well
planned. An Iron trellis In the form of
an arch spanned the carriage drive,
and the branches of a weeping willow
having been trained over It, It made,
with the shrubbery, an effectual screen

the door for the first time after the

carriage and expressed a hope that the

that they ought. "But," said he, "I
don't like that arch over the drive, sir."
"Why," said the master, "what's the
