have au opportunity of shuddering at
It. A fine exhibition it would be of
the peculiar products of "Southorn

The Republican party has never
done better work than when it has

The result of having to fight te win
is seen in the late Ohio election.
That there are close states to be fought
for to win next year's battle is n good
tiling for the Republicans. It will
inspire zeal and active work. The

Three gangs of mon were hard at work

speed. Two wore engaged in grading,
while the other men wore busy preparing
poles for erection, laying sills and rails and
Tho work accomplished yfstorday wa of
no small magnitude A Herald reporter
went over the ground yesterday and mado
notes of tho work accomplished.
Thus far 2,250 yards of grading has boen
dpno. Sills have boen distributed 1,250
yards and sills, rails and spikes have boen
distributed 900 yards. Tho polos are dis
tributed along tho ontiro distance of 2,250
Tho spiking of rails and filling in wan
commenced yesterday morning and 160
yards of this work was accomplished.
The road starts on tho bill abovo tho turn
of tho road at Dovey's crossing, whero the
250 yard trostlo is to connect It with tho
dirt bank over which the road will pass
whon they leave the borough bridgo that
orosses the Lehigh' Valley track. Passing
along the mountain side towards Wm
i'enu tho road gradually draws nearer the
tbrnplke until thoy run side by side. About
600 yards from Dovey's crossing, near the
first house of upper Wm. Penn, tho olec-
trie road crosses tho turnpike and run on
the right hand side of it. It runs clojo to
the doors of the houses and so close to the
narrow porch of tho company store that
the motor men, with a little practice, will
be able to stop tho cars at a point that will
onablo the passengers to step right from
tho platforms up to the store counters.
Tho road continues along tho right band
side of tho turnpike to the Wm. Ponn
breaker. Here there seems to be a stumb
ling block, but that obstacle will bo re
moved before many days. The portion of
tho turnpike that runs under tho breaker
is not wide onough for wagons and tho cars,
so tho Wm. Penn Coal Company is making
arrangements to make new supporlB for the
breaker and leavo a clear track for the
olectric cars besides the turnpike. Having
a clear road here the olectrio ro-id will con
tinue on tho right hand side, past the boiler
bouies, to the trestle, about a hundred
yards distant, where the turnpike turns.
Instead of following tnls turn tho electric
road will keep a straight line, crossing th
turnplke diagonally under tho trestlo and
striking tho left hand side of Iho turnpike.
At tho place where the olectric road starts
to cross tho turnpike, thore is a dirt bank.
Foreman Charles Amour and bis men bad
graded along this dirt bank and about 200
yards beyond It at dinner time yoste'rday,
when tho top of the bank slid down and
spoiled the grading. lie was obliged to
tako bis mon back to clear away the debris
and rostore grade, which delayed him
about two hours in his grade work.
After passing under the trestlo tho olec
trio road continues along the left hand side
of the turnpike until it nearly reaches
Bender's store, about 150 yards, when it
again crosses the turnpike to tho right
hand side. The road then follows that side
to the P. & It. railroad crossing at the
lower patch, where it strikes the old Lost
Creek road and goes on over tho swamp
filled with coal dirt, under the old No, 2
trestlo, and on past tbo Catholic church at
Lost Creek and tbeueo along the road that
passes tho church in the direction of Con
ners. Foreman Patrick Conry started his gang
of sun-burnud Italians yesterday morning
at Bender's store and graded to tho top of
the hill that leads down to tbo P. Ss It.
crossing by quitting time. It was not nec
essary to dig deep and the grading done
covered about 450 yards. But thoro wero
innumerably obstructions on this section.
Coal shanties, chickon coops and small
stables stood in tho way, The peoplo
down that way are so anxious to huvo the
road running that thoy volunteered ta re
move tho coal and otbor contents of the
structures, and did so, when tho Italians
wore directed to romovo the shanties to tbo
places desired by the owners. In this way
tho work wont on satisfactory to all.
Tbo most formidable obstructions in the
way are old telegraph poles and water
plugs, but tho ollUlala of tho railway com
pany soy that their pole mon and a couple
of plumbers will soon set tbem aside-.
Foreman Amour took his gang to tbe P.
& 1(. crossing at tho lower patch yesterday
aftornoon and started to work eastward up
the hill towards Foreman Conry's gang.
Last night tbo entire road from Dovey's
crossing to tbo lower 1 & 11. crossing was

A Disputed Question.
Scientists and electricians cannot agree
upon the number of electrio volts which
aro necessary to causo a cessation of life in
the human body j some claim that an ex
cessive shock is more likely to cause
Incineration rather than instantaneous
death, but if they would turn their atton
tion to prolonging and Increasing the
ploasures of life, tho public would hail the
result with more satisfaction. For instance,
tho olectricity generated In a wave of
laughter is after all tbo most pleasant
shock, and to seo a largo assomblago moved
by a current of uncontrollable mirth while
witnessing tbe play of "She Couldn't
Marry Throe," places beyond dispute the
fact that large yolti of laughter aro better
than volts of electricity any day.
