by throwing large pitchforks of hay
unon the seat of tho lire. The

only one way of escape, a large door
In front, but that was cut oft by tho
flames. Mr. Weber could not get out
that way. The dense smoke and
heat from the fire were suffocating.

Pino is on tho ground which will
bo used to convey tho water from the
States within tho next flvo years
without counting tho $50,000,000
bond Issue proposed to construct the
main roads of Pennsylvania. This
enormous sum Is greater than the
expenditures for that purpose in any
decade ln the past, and will probably
exceed tho sums to be devoted to
similar uso ln tho greater part of
Europe in the same space of time.
Rapid growth of means of quick
transportation by means of railroads
and lnter-urban electric systems has
stimulated tho demand for better
roads brought about by tho Increase
of automobile traffic and opening of
direct markets for farm produce in
the cities and towns. To this has
been added tho Insistence upon eli
mination of tho profits of the middle
man in foodstuffs, which Is prevalent
ln every part of tho country and
which is affording farmers a way to
obtain fair prices for produce by di
rect sale. In many of tho agricul
tural sections of New York, New Jer
sey and Ohio the return to tho farm
er has been Increased through the
construction of good roads which
have enabled him to reach market
towns and forwarding stations on
railroads and electric Hues, which
with tho roads of ten years ago
would have been an impossibility.
iew York, which has spent $40,-
000,000 in development of one of the
best road systems in the world, Is
about to ask for a new bond Issue
of $50,000,000 to rebuild highways
in rural sections and to connect more
county towns. State bond Issues are
being agitated in other States, and
Pennsylvania will this fall elect
members of the legislature who will
vote finally upon submitting to tho
people In 1913, an amendment to
the constitution to permit a $50,
000,000 bond Issue for building im
proved roads. This sum, which is to
be spread over a period of years in
order to obtain the best results and
hold down the carrying charges, will
put .Pennsylvania In the front rank
of progressive commonwealths, a
position which the condition of Its
roads now prevents, to tho great loss
of her period.
Pennsylvania has developed a road
building system which has attracted
national attention and Is now work
ing out its maintenance problems.
If the S50.000.000 bond tssuin In vnt-
pdTevery county town in, the State
r1?in be -connected 'by means of fine
roads, farmers will be enabled to
reach markets with ease, and thous
