What Wide Tires Will Hear.
Testimony on the valae of wile
tires comes from all sections of the
globe. A correspdndent of a paper in |
Bydoey, Australia, describes a road in |
which heavily-laden wagons with nar
row tires sank “‘hali-spoke deep, and
in pisces to their whesl hubs,”
yet a load of five tons, carried on six. |

Road Legislation In Vermont.
It is felt in Vermont that the good |
roads canse has received a set-back,
but efforts are being made to regive it
and secure favorable action from the |
next legisiature. The State highway

bowever, abolished the commission,
thus leaving the movement without a

tue fall, a sample road acder govern-

at Vergennes, and it is hoped that it
will be followed by revival of activity
in highway improvement.
