hss been done in this township for a
long time was completed last week by

and includes that piece of swamp south
of Hobbenciefken's farm house. It is
quite an undertaking to build a road
across one of these swamps, but it was
done here, in good shape and at a very
moderate cost. We need muoh more of
this kind of work in the township.
A stranger who had been, husking
corn for eTfarmer came to town Sunday
afternoon, bringing a good sized jag

and fell off a bread basket in front of a

know whether he was just going some
where, or had been there and was on his
way back. His face was badly bruised
and bled profusely. However, the fall
jarred some of the cobwebs from his
thinktank and he went to the depot and
boarded the evening train for Norfolk.

Adders ef Great Britain.
An adder two feet 4 inches in
length, killed in Ross-shire, reported
recently, is a large one, but by no
means a "record." A correspondent
of the Scotsman has kept a record of
large adders killed In various parts of
the country for many years. One sent
him near Kendal, Westmoreland,
measured 29 inches, and a second
(same locality), September 2, 1893, 31
inches. One sent from Beverly, York
shire, on July 23, 1898, measured 35
inches, and so far is the largest he
has ever heard of In this country. In
the Furness district of north Lan
cashire adders grow to an unusual
size, from 25 inches to 30 Inches, be
ing apparently the normal develop
ment The correspondent has not a
single record of an adder attacking
man or beast If not accidentally trod
on or wilfully provoked. Adders are
most irritable just after recovering
from hibernation, and their bites then
Mearns Quail a New Game Bird.

be the equal of bob white In all re

LAVA FOR RAILROAD BALLAST
Hitherto Regarded as Entirely Use
less Found to Make Excellent
Foundation for Road Bed.
Bend, Ore. The railroad survey
south from Bend has now reached the
lava fields, distant some eight miles
up the Deschutes. It has just become
known that this lava, which has hith
erto been regarded as entirely useless,
will supply the very best ballast for
the new road and will probably be
used on the entire central stretch ol
the line. Not only will it fill this pur
pose excellently well, but contrary to
the belief that has previously existed
obtaining it will be an economical
The experts declare that no "shoot
ing" will be necessary, but that a
steam shovel will be able to scoop up
the half disintegrated rock and dump
it into cars, practically prepared by
nature for its new field of activity. II
such be the case it is the very first
time that the lava has ever served
a useful purpose, according to the
people who have had most to do with
it, for hitherto it has been classed as
a nuisance akin to coyotes and other
pestful productions of nature.
