The True Way to Secure Their Im
The Engineering ; News devotes an arti
cle in the current number to country
roads. In many cases , it says , their con
dition is even worse than when the stage
coaches and teams of Conestoga wagons
of our grandsires' day made some care
of them n public necessity. What is
wanted , it continues , is an engineer , se
lected under conditions that will insure
his competency , fairly paid for his work ,
and clothen with power to enforce his
plans , when any plans are to bo carried
out , and who will be personally respon
sible for the character of his own work
and the soudness of his judgment m de
ciding upon the merits of county struc
tures designed by other parties.
Any such official powers in the hands
of a competent engineer , and his pro
posed freedom from embarrassing rela
tions with for such work incompetent
county officials , would bo such a wide
departure from present practice , that wo
cannot pretend to formulate a law upon
this subject. That it would bo desirable
in the interest of good engineering , and
true economy , even the most prejudiced
cannot deny ; that the initiative step must
bo taken by those who ultimately pay in
taxes or in lifo for the blunders of the
ignorant. Even the farmer consults his
doctor when sick in body , and his lawyer
when his legal rights are being assailed ,
and never dreams of substituting ono for
the other or consulting himself. Yet ho
seems to think that ho or his neighbor
can build nil the bridges , roads , etc. ,
select the best plan from many of any
proposed structure , and in fact do all the
engineering work his neighborhood re
quires. That he docs it now is often the
fact ; but that ho does it well is open to
the gravest doubt.
Every county at least needs its fully
recognized county engineer with whom
the layman should bo compelled to con
sult , and who should have power to act.
When this is accomplished WP can then ,
and only then , bo considered as begin
ning to remove conditions that are now
a national reproach. We admit that our
country is new : that the government
does not care for our highways as in
Europe ; that our counties arc too poor
to expend the sums required for good
work , and that the proposed improve
ment upon present conditions is too vast
an undertaking for any ono generation ,
and that this improvement must neces
sarily be slow.
But while admitting this , wo also con
tend that under present control the ma
jority of our county governments ,
especially the poor ones , waste much
money by misdirected and ignorant
attempts at well-doing ; that the manual
Jabor now expended is about as effective
in securing the end sought after , as would
bo transporting water in a sieve ; and
finally the sooner we commence to im
prove upon bad practice , and realize
that our advance in other directions de
mands immediate attention in this direc
tion , the better for all parties concerned.

Keeping His Promise to a Dying Girl.
Essex Telegraph : Great excitement
has been created in the neighborhood by
the circumstances under which a dead
body was recently wheeled on u hand
cart from London to the village qf Little
Horkesloy , a distance of more than
Iho deceased was a young woman
named Amoy Carey Dansey. She was
brought up by her grandfather and
grandmother at their liomo at Little
Horkesloy.and when old enough wont out
to service. Sometime ago she was at
tacked by consumption , and rapidly
growing worse , was removed to
Brompton hospital , whore she
died early in the present month. Among
those who had constantly visited the girl
while she was in the hospital were her
mother and Her stepfather , Joseph Boll ,
living in London. In answer to her
oft repeated desire to bo buried in Little
Horkesley churchyard , Ball had assured
her that she should bo buried there ; but
as the event proved , the promise was not
easy to fulfill. Being a cabinetmaker ,
Ball was able to make the coffin himself :
but the question of the conveyance of
the body to Little Uorkesloy presented
In consequence of an accident , Bait
bad for nineteen weeks been out of work ,
and , having a family dencn'dcnt on him ,
was in considerable stritlts. ilo ascer
tained that if the coilln wore removed by
rail to Colchester , and tlienco to Little
llorkosloy.tho cost would bo i'l 2s. , which
was moro than ho could afford , but ho
remembered his promise , and determined
to wheel the body down by road. On the
Sunday ovonintr following the girl's
death lie had finished the collin , and having -
ing obtained a certificate from the regia-
trarhe placed the collin on his handcart ,
and wont to fetch the body from the
hospital. At first the hospital authorities
refused to let him have it , but were rea-
Mired , anil gave their consent , lie took
away the body at HJO : ! that night , and by
fi10 : ! next morning was on the road to
Hall tints relates the story of his jour
"I wheeled the body on the handcart ,
and 1 brought my scco'nd little boy with
mi ! , aged about ten. Ilo rode on the
collin down lull and on the level road ,
but when we had to go up hill he hclpi-d
to push a little , because i was so weak
and ill. The first day 1 put up two miles
short of Ingatcstone , at an inn. On the
night of the second day 1 reached Wit-
ham , and put up at the Swan. Two men
came to me and wanted to know what I
had got in the collin. Ono of them said
ho was a detective , and ho said , 'I de
mand to look inside. ' 1 said , 'Show
mo your warrant card , ' and ho
could not do so. Wo had
a bother , and he would have forced open
the collin ; but ivy master is always
stronger than the devil , and ho gave mo
strength to struggle with the man and
put him out of the house. 1 then sent my
little boy for a policeman , and then the
row was over , The inspector of police
afterward came and took mv name and
address , and I showed him the certificate
ot death and answered all his inquiries
satisfactorily and truthfully. Next morn
ing I started about half past 8 , and ar
rived at little Horkesley just after G on
Wednesday night. "

A IjGiiR-Ijivntl Family.
Carroll County ( Mo. , ) Correspondent
Globe-Democrat : Perhaps there is no
other county in the United States that
can make as remarkable a showing of
living children , in ono family , as the
Minnis family of Carroll county , Mo.
Of this family of brothers and sisters
there are seven survivors , whose com
bined ago is 445 years , and who are all
between the ages of sixty anil seventy
years , as follows : Charles , sixty-nine ;
John , sixty-eight ; Jane ( Graham ) sixty-
six ; James , sixtv-fivc " ; Wiirron , sixty-four ;
Sarah ( Hraden ) , sixty-two ; Robert , sixty.
These children came to Carroll county
with their parents ( Thomas and Pamela
Minnis ) from Tennessee lifty-four years
ago , and all except two are still residents
of this county , and are among its most
respected and trustworthy citizens.

Cor. Baltimore Sun : Looking over
he side we see the first evidence of our
ipproach to the llowery kingdom , for wo
are surrounded by sampans manned by
Chinese oarsmen. These boats arc short
and flat-bottomed , with the bow looking
'ike the snout of an alligator and the
item rounding up into two curved spars
n the same fashion as the handles of a
baby-carriage. The boatmen stand up
and propel them by mishinjr the oars ,
the handles of which they cross in front
of them. These boats are generally
painted in bright colors , and always have
a largo eye painted on each bow. If you
ask a boatman why those eyes are there
ho will answer you : "No nab eye , how
can see ? No can see , how can sabez ?
No can sabez , how can do ? " The boat
men don't wear much clothing , but they
make up for such lack by wearing a cone-
shaped hat from two to tlirco feet in

Lippincott's : The lectures were finan
cial successes ; in a few years the fee
grew from anything I could get to $100 a
night , and as many engagements as there
are nights in the week. The books were
collossal failures. All T over got out of
the three of them wouldn't pay mo for
the time spent in their compilation at a
day laborer's wages. And right hero is
as good a chance as I shall ever have to
oxuress my honest regret that 1 ever
wrote my "Lifo of William Penn. " No
body road it , and I will say in confidence
and I don't ' want this repeated outside
of the office tiiat I still owe the publish
ers $8 for indexing. The original bill
was $13 , 1 think , but in three or four
years' cnoiighbooksiiavo | ; been sold to ap

ing. Still , I am sorrv 1 wrote it. But
that's nothing to me. Every day of my
lifo I am sorry for something I did yes
terday. So constantly am I doing pen
ance that 1 live in a state of chronic re
morse and habitual hair shirt. I only
hope that the day after die I may not -be
sorry I did it. _
