Bradford Has No Use For Ilcrry
The Towanda correspondent of the
Elmlra (N. Y.) Telegram Indulges
in a prediction in Sunday's letter,
Tho third party movement in Brad
ford county is not amounting to any
thing. It is petering out, becauso it
never had a start, tho self-appointed
delegates to tho Philadelphia
convention being so far from rep
resentatives of any faction that there
Is no Interest in what they aim to
do, or would like to do. .Hon. G.
W. Klpp Is making the mistake of
his llfo In playing Into the hands of
a few renegade Republicans, be
cause his only hope Is tho regular
Democratic ticket, which ho seems
to have forsaken. A great many
Democrats who cannot seo any im
provement in the third ticket over
the regular nominations of the Re
publicans and Democrats will not
support Mr, Klpp, for they are sore'
because he has become interested
in tho third party movement.
"Bob" Edmiston of Milan is en
gineering Mr. Kipp's third party
campaign and how well he will per
form this task will bo better seen
on tho day following tho election in
November. Here Is a prediction
and you can stick a pin in It: Tho
Republican ticket will be elected in
Pennsylvania this fall by an old-time
majority, and Colonel Pratt will be
returned to Congress in spito of all
that Clem Heverly, Bob Edmiston
and Ensign Rundell can do.

SCRANTON, Aug. 30. Superin
tendent Joseph W. Hunter of tho
state highway department, Stato En
gineer Arthur W. Long of this city,
the Wayne county commissioners and
road supervisors of Greenfield town
ship are to Inspect the new stretch
of state road on the Greenfield pike
leading to Hawley Sept. 9. The
road has been repaired for three and
one-half miles, the contractor using
macadam on a rock bottom. The
work Is completed, with tho excep
tion of rounding out the top dress
ing. Engineer Long says repairs may
be made this fall on the stretch of
road between Northern Chinchilla
and Clark's Summit. In many
places the top dressing has worn
off, and in other spots the road bot
tom needs to be replaced.
Tho road supervisors throughout
this section, according to Engineer
Long, aro taking greater interest
than heretofore in tho repairing of
the roads In their district. This is
due largely to the Jones bill enacted
at the last legislature, which directs
tho state to refund 50 per cent, of
tho cost of repairs where tho work
does not amount to over $20 a mile.

ONE OF THE GREAT PROBLEMS.
With Good Itonds tho Fnnncr Can
Haul to Highest Market.
Hero is what Georgo W. Lattimor,
Chairman of tho Joint Roads Com
mittee of tho Ohio Stato Board of
Commorce nnd tho Ohio Stato
Grange, hns to say on tho subject of
good roads In his recent report:
"Tho fnrther ono studies and In
vestigates this subject, tho moro ho
Is convinced thnt It is ono of tho
greatest problems of tho United
States. It touches tho welfare and
Interest of more Individuals than any
other one question that Is boforo tho
American public to-day. Thero is
not n man, wdmnn or child, in tho
country or city, that Is not obliged to
use tho roads.
"Owing to tho extremely bad
roads of the present time, tho far
mer, who is tho producer, is obliged
to haul his product to tho nearest
market nt such times during tho
year as the roads are passable. This
occurs within two or thrco months
In tho fall, altar the harvest. This
glut and over-supply makes tho very
lowest prices of tho year for tho pro
ducer, and tho consumer. In tho cit
ies and centers of population is
obliged to pay tbe very highest prices
during the months of the bad weath
er. Good roads will ellmlnato such
conditions eo that tho farmer can
liaul his products to the market at
any time during tho year, whonovor
the demand calls for It, and tho con
sumer can buy whenever tho goods
are wanted. Thus the producor will
be able to secure a better prlco for
his product and the consumer pays
lower prices for his necessities.
"For years tho United States and
Stato governments have been appro
priating money for waterways, steam
railroads and other means of com
munication, all of which aro good,
but these questions becomo Insignifi
cant of what good roads will bring to
tho inhabitants of this country. Ev
erybody should be interested in this
question, and should urge Federal,
Stato and county aid for Improve
ments which at this time aro all vital
to the welfare of our country.'1
Rural Delivery for Better Roads.
Tho large crops and high prices of
farm products tor tho past 20 years,
together with tho general prosper
ity of the wholo country, toad to in
crease the desire for the good things
of this world, and affords moro leis
ure to enjoy what we have. Tho
Increased number of peoplo who ride
over the couuntry for elthor ploasuro
or business to say nothing of the
driving required by the great system
of rural delivery which has bo re
cently been inaugurated, havo creat
ed a pressing demand from one end
of tho country to tho othor for a
better grade of highways than havo
heretoforo been dreamed of. Some
roads vill be built by tho national
government and others by tho States,
but the counties will always bo tho
greatest promoters and builders of
Some States aro already spending
millions on their highways. Massa
chusetts appropriated $25,000,000 a
few years ago for that purpose and
now has many r.lles of beautiful
roads as smooth as asphalt pave
ment. All Europe abounds in fine
roads; but they havo been at it for
centuries and havo learned tho art
to perfection. It may tako genera
tions fx put all our roads In as good
condition as theyarc abroad, but wo
havo made tho beginning, nnd each
year will doubtless show much pro
gress as a whole.
A few suggestions about tho proper
construction of a roadbed may not
To begin with tho surface should
bo made very crowning, for it im
mediately begins to flatten by uso,
and will continue to grow moro and
more so all tho tlmo if nothing is
done to provent It. But it can bo
held h good shape by occasional
scraping. Tho scraping will also do
a great deal towards filling up the
Bmall depressions, which aro tho real
beginning of all trouble. But some
now material must bo carefully put
in by hand whore needed not too
much, ns that will create two holes,
where beforo there was but ono. Uso
moro brains and less stonel A good
road cannot bo made without hard
thinking. Keep in mind all tho time
that you aro lighting water! You
will notice that tho roads always re
main in tho best condition on the
grades whero the water can easily
run away, and you will aUo obsorvo
that they always grow bad first in
tho valleys and level paces, and that
it Is becauso tho roadbods aro flat, or
perhaps oven holowlng with little
dams of sod on tho sldos so that tho
water stands there until It soaks in
or dries up, instead of running away
quickly, as it should, and would if
the surface was kept crowning and
tho furrows kept from forming,
which act as canals to conduct the
water down into tho lowest part of
tho road, whore mud and destruction
