Duty of Road Jurors in Assessing.
The following extracts from a late charge
of Judge Ross, of Montgomery county,
may be of assistance to the Road Jruors in
Neither the oath nor the duty of a road
juror shall compel hint to draw conclusions
exclusively derived from the testimony.
He is appointed to view, and front that
view, aided by all the information he can
derive from an inspection of the locality,
it is competent for hint to arrive at a final
conclusion, which does not accord with the
testimony. It is perfectly proper, and of
ten highly advisable to seek the light af
forded by the testimony of witnesses, but
evidence as to the amount of damages and
the value of property is after all but the
mere opinion of the witnesses, and unless
it coincides with the judgment of thejuror
it is not and should not be in itself con
clusive upon his action. The primary
duty is to view and then to receive and bal
ance the testimony in the light afforded by
the judgment resulting front that view.
It is a violation of duty to reach a con
elusion and report an amount that is as
certained by averaging a series of individ
ual estimates made with a view to obtain
the average—which, it has been previous
ly agreed, shall be the assessment. The
Court has been informed that this highly
illegal and vicious practice extensively pre
vails, and that assessments of damages are
generally made in this way. We say here,
that in every case where it is satisfactorily
shown that the damages were reached by
this process, the report will be set aside.
The law requires that there shall be six
viewers appointed; of this number five
must view, and that not less than four
shall unite in the conclusion erpressed in
the report. Thus carefully does the law
guard the process of assessment, insisting
hat the individual judgment of four dis
interested, intelligent and honest men shall
harmonize and accord in one conclusions.
Each juror should, therefore, act as an in
dividual appraisor, reach his own concht
ision, communicate it to his fellows, and
then if possible, a united judgment may be
reached by reasoning and an interchange
of views, producing in intelligent and con
scientious agreement. A conclusion reach
ea by averaging, or by marking amounts,
substitutes change for deliberation, artifice
for reasoning, arithmetical jugglery for de
liberate judgment. It practically renders
a jury who adopt it foresworn; and defeats
the pupposes and objects which a view was
intended to subserve.
The jury can consider no purely specu
lative damage. The inquiry is, what loss
has the petitioner sustained by reason of
the opening or windening of the street ?
This loss may be considered in detail by a
series of questions addressed to those mat
ters of which damages may be assessed.
Has the market value of the land been
affected ? If it be, then how much would it
bring at a fair sale as affected by the road,
and what would it have brought if the street
or road had not been opened or laid out
over it? The difference between these
amounts the measure of the Petitioner's
damages in the value of the land. This in
quiry into the market value necessarily
embraces a consideration of all the advan
tages and disadvantages produced by the
opening and widening ; and as it compre
hends them both in the same view, and
harmonizes them by a standard of compar
ative value, it is the best mode ofappraise
ment. Has the business of the landowner
been directly affected injurously by, and if
it has, to what extent ? No consequential
damage can be allowed under this inquiry.
Direct present results alone can be consid
ered. To illustrate; if the tenant of the
landowner, as in this case, was evicted
from part of the premises, what rent did
the landowner lose by this eviction ? Rent
for succeeding years that might he lost by
a destruction of a part of premises ought
not to be estimated, fur the landowner has
been recompensed for the injury in estima
ting the loss on the market value of the
property, and he cannot be paid twice.
What additional expenditures of time,
money, or materials are necessarily and cer
tainly cast upon the Petitioner, as the re
sult of the street being opened or widened
over his ground, were such expenditures
are for other than taxes or municipal im
provements directed by law ? The aggre
gate can only be given from the day upon
which his land was entered under the
opening order. Stewart vs. Courly, 2 Barr,
These remarks are intended as a general
guide, to the new and other jurors in this
and similar cases. There may be special
cases in which other grounds of damage
exist, and the non-reference to them is not
intended to preclude a jury in such cases
from awarding damages for those—all that
is sought in the instructions here given is
to establish some general principles of in
vestigation and:a general line of inquiry.
Chickens Drooping and Dying.
The Rural New Yorker has the follow
- - -
Chickens are very often seen in the poul
try yard drooping and moping about, and
finally die before any attention is paid to
them; and then breeders are profuse in
their queries as to what kills their fowls.
One reason is that the chickens are either
too highly fed or become lousy. In the
former case the food should be chopped
eggs, bread and meat scraps from the table
choppfine, and let them have plenty of fresh
mould and road sand or gravel. In the lat
ter case; put some worm-wood in their
water and grease the head thoroughly with
lard or fresh butter In our youthful days
the first thing we did after the chickens
were out of the shell was to saturate its
head well with fresh butter. This precau
tion, in our opinion, has saved us many a
The Benefits of Shade.
Iu planting fruit trees, aim to have them
so that the hot, dry sun will not fall with full
effect on the ground about the roots. Many
who have trees in gardens, plant rasberries
under them. The partial shade is good for
rasberries, and seems to help the trees.
Blackberries would no doubt do well in
the same situation; and the finest strawber
ry bed we have is on the northern side - of
a row of apple trees, by which it is pratect
ed from the rays of the noon-day sun. The
goosberry and currant also do well in par
tial shade; and, indeed, if your soil be light
and sandy, they cannot be grown advantag
geously without more or less protection from
The Value of Education.
There are few things about which peo
ple are so much agreed as on the value of
education. Though they are not prepar
ed very often to explain what they mean
by education, and not very apt in deter
mining what its value is, they assent to
the general statement that it is of the
highest value, without hesitation, and on
all occasions. It is not difficult to explain
why the precise appreciation of its value
is rare, and why the precise signification
of the word "education" is seldom arrived
at. To make out, however, what each of
these terms imports, is of prime necessity.
Education differs from information or
knowledge. The latter is of a special
character, the purport of which is to fit a
man for bringing about certain definite re
sults by the immediate operation of that
knowledge which he possesses. We talk,
indeed, of the education of a lawyer, a
doctor, a clergyman—of an engineer, a
soldier, or a sailor ; generally meaning by
it the information or knowledge which he
has acquired for the immediate exercise of
his vocation. By law, medicine, divinity,
mechanics, strategies and navigation are
not education. A. man may possess any
one of them and be well nigh illiterate,
though of course sonic can more possibly
co-exist with want of education than oth
ers. One can conceive that a man may
have a profound practical acquaintance
with law, and be an uneducated person.
Again, to quote an instance, the
Duke of Marlborough was one of the most
skillful generals ever known, but he could
nut spell, and hardly write. Some men
who have bad the most marvellous apti
tude and quickness in mechanical science,
have been unable from sheer ignorance to
sustain a common conversation.
Education, on the other hand, deals
with formalities. It does not aim so much
at setting the mind right on particular
points, as on getting the mind into the
way of being right. It does not deal with
matter, but with method. It purposes
to train the thinking powers of man, not
to fill the mind with iacts. Hence, were
it perfect, it would cultivate the intelli
gence so largely as to render easy the ac
quisition of any knowledge. It deals in
short, either directly or indirectly, with
logical order and the reasoning powers.
That it falls short of effecting what it pur
poses, is due to defects in its system, to
defects in man's mind, to defects in this
or that man's mind. As, however, its
operation is not immediate, but only indi
rect, its best methods are frequently cav
illed at as useless.
I may teach the logical method of think
ing and reasoning. This, however, is
generally too abstract for most minds, ex
cept they be more or less matured, and
more or less informed on one or two sub
jects. In place of this, then, it teaches
ordinarily something, which is as exact an
illustration of logical method as can be,
and, which, being unfailing in its infer
ences, trains the mind in method, and of
ten stores it with facts. In a greater or
less degree, but in some degree at least,
this inculcation of an abstract method is
necessary for any kind of education, and
even, except it be a mere knack, for infor
Reading and writing even are educa
tional methods. The letters of the alpha
bet are abstract and arbitrary signs. the
comprehension of which requires a certain
amount of attention, mad s separation, for
a time at least, between the thing signified
and the sign. After a time the use of and
formation of letters become almost mechan
ical arts, though this is, to be sure, the
case with all perfect methods; for what
we call a mechanical process in the mind,
means a habit, the exercise of which is so
rapid, that we are unable to follow it, and
so sure about it as not to need to follow it.
Arithmetic, the science of abstract num
bers, is an educational method of great
and well nigh universal necessity, though
it is also of great practical utility in its
application to details and facts. By far
the majority of people who learn arith
metic fully, never need use more than its
simplest rules. So, in a still more marked
way, it is with geometry, and certain oth
er familiar educational processes. To il
lustrate these methods, however, we need
the presence of a certain number of facts,
and to arrange and classify these facts we
need more or less of these methods.
Now, it is plain that some of these
methods have so obvious and universal or
a practical application that they must be
possessed by everybody who wishes to
carry on, except in lowest station, the
commonest business in life. Hence they
are looked on as pieces of knowledge or
information as they have a direct result
Thus it is that the confusion commences
between education and information. It is
not difficult to put knowledge and method
in strong contrast, but it is not easy to say
where method ends and knowledge be
The value of education is measured by
three rules. What is it worth to the in
dividual possessing it? What is the worth
which society assigns to it What is its
material worth, or, in other words, what
advantages are connected with it, which
may be reduced with greater or less exact
ness to dollars and cents ? The first of
these aspects of the value of education is
apt to be measured by the other two; but
unless a man is to merely live by other
people's good opinion, or to merely follow
that which will increase his balance at his
banker's, the first has a fair claim to in
All judgments which have been worked
out by a man's own mind, all general
principles which have influenced society,
all directions of original thought have
come from the first of these values of edu
cation. In the worth of education to the
individual who has it, lie all the facts of
human progress. And in it, too, are all
the consolations of man himself, whether
they be escape from prevalent error, or re
lief from the toil and labor, or the shield
of a rational self-respect. ** * Prof.

The Kidneys are two in number, situated at the
upper part of the lion, surrounded by fat, and con
sisting of three parts, viz: the Anterior, the In
terior, and the Exterior.
The anterior absorbs. Interior consists of tis
sues or veins, which serve as a deposit for the urine
and convey it to the exterior. The exterior is a
conductor also, terminating in a single tube, and
called the Ureter. The ureters aro conneeterl with_
The bladder is composed of various coverings or
tissues, divided into parts, viz: the Upper, the
Lower, the Nervous and the Mucous. The upper
expels, the lower retains. Many have a desiae to
urinate without the ability; others urinate without
the ability to retain. This frequently occurs in
THE GRAVEL.—The gravel ensues from neglect
or improper treatment of the kidneys. These or
gans being weak, the water is not expelled from
the bladder, but allowed to remain ; it becomes
feverish, and sediment forms. It is from this de
posit that the stone is formed, and gravel ensues.
DROPSY is a collection of 'sestet...in some parts
of the body, and bears different names, according

H. T. Histatuotu, Druggist:
Dear have , been a sufferer, for upward
of twenty years, with gravel bladder and kidney
affections, during which time I have used various
medicinal preparations, and have been under the
treatment of the most eminent Physicians, experi
HaZing seen your preparations extensively ad
vertised, I consulted with my family physician in
regard to using your Extract Buchu.
I did this bemuse I had used all kinds of ad
vertised remedies, and had found them worthless,
and, some quite injurious; in fact, I despaired of
ever getting well. and determined to use no reme
dies hereafter unless I knew of the ingredients. It
was this that prompted me to use your remedy.
As you advertised that it was composed of huchu,
cubebs and juniper berries, it occurred to me and
my physician as an excellent combination, and,
with his advice after an examination of the article
and consulting again with the druggist. I conclud
ed to try it. I commenced its use about eight
months ago, at which time I was confined to my
room. From the first bottle I was astonished and
gratified at the beneficial effect, and after using it
three weeks, was üble to wails out. I felt Much
like writing you a fell statement of my case at
that time, but thought my improvement might
only be a temporary, and therefore concluded to
defer and sec if it would effect a perfect cure,
knowing then it would be of greater value to you,
and more satisfactory to me.
I am now able to report that a cure is effected
after using the remedy for five months.
I have not used any now for three months, and
fell as well in all respects, as I ever did.
Your Buchu being devoid of any unpleasant
taste and odor—a nice tonic and invigorator of the
system. Ido not mean to be without it whenever
occasion may require its use in such affections.
