But among all the children of the stage the two most supremely happy, without exception, are John Coleman and Jesse Henderson, the inimitable comical little darkies who made their "dramatic" debut with Mr. Francis Wilson's company in "The Merry Monarch,'' and have since beeu a familiar feature in all his productions. To them stage life is a long da5'-dream of happiness on which the sun of their enthusiasm never sets. Three years ago these two droll urchins were ragged little gamins, earning a precarious living by singing and dancing on the streets of Baltimore. Hunger had so developed their artistic abilities that Mr. Wilson, chancing upon them one rainy day when unusual brilliant feats were necessary to coax the pennies from the moist and disgruuted passers-by, resolved upon the spot to raise these youthful Thespians to the dignity of the cpinic opera .stage. The young comedians generosity was rewarded by the most fervent and adoring gratitude To John and Jesse, Francis Wilson reiguedsupreme asthe greatluminous star of the stage world, and thev felt it their solemn, but delightful, duty to twinkle there brightest as his attendant satellites.

Come in Wednesday sure for your setting. Eight Miles of Laborious Engineering ,':; . y Across tlie Death Valley. ...,The grading a road of solid salt was until-recently an -unexpected taskin en- gineering and is thus described by one •fits operators: In what is known as "Death valley we found a stretch of solid ■alt about eight mile3 across. In a sense It was level, There were no hills or valleys.- -In-another sense there was scarcely a level square inch on the whole beds, for the salt crust had, probably through the influence of heat from ahove and of moisture from below, been torn and twisted and thrown up in the most jagged peaks, pyramids and crisscrossed ridges imaginable. They were not high—none more than four feet—but there was not a level space even-for a man's foot between them. Every step made was on a ragged point or edge of some kind. The nearest approach to anything like that I have ever Been was on the ice on Lake Erie, where two fields had heen jammed together by the wind and held so by the frost. The ragged ice masses were somewhat like .these salt masses. They were larger, bnt they Were not so sharp or in any way so difficult to cross. Judging that the crust wonld' sustain the weight of the wagons the workmen swung the sledge hammers day after dayuntil they had beaten down these pinnacles into a smooth way six feet wide. It was perhaps the most laborkms engineering work ever done in the country, for the climate and location, far from civilized habitations, combined to retard the efforts of the workmen. The roadway when completed led oyer what may be properly called a naturally formed bridge of salt eight miles long— the only bridge of the kind in the world. As one enters the.easterly end of this road two unmarked graves are seen in the salt crust lfear the track. -They are the graves of unknown men who died there from- the. heat, and after the fashion of.the .country were buried ,where'.-they fell.-. They • were "covered with pieces of salt broken from the pinnacles near by.' The crust was too hard to warrant digging" into it. One must travel a long time to find two more graves like these, if indeed two more can be found in the world.—Age of Steel. __^ Xhe Struggle Foi* Good Eoads. From about 1795, when the first piece of respectable country road, the Lancaster turnpike, was made a success, and when the roads elsewhere were ox cart tracks on which stage coaches could make an average of hardly three miles an hour, until 1810, when the first steamboats were paddling toward success and the first tramways were leading to a new and absorbing direction of effort, the road question was a stirring and a national one. Then it was a question of roads: now it is: a question of- better roads. Then the struggle for public funds and favor came to issue between roads and canals;, now it is between roads and building's and parks. Then the national government built one road, helped one or two others,, granted a few charters, and then left the matter to the states in a rush of political influences to favor manufactur- ers-by protective tariffs. As usual the merchants and capitalists of the cities got the statutes, and the farthers and producers got discussions' and contentions and continued to travel in their ruts. At present there is no available systematized knowledge of the roads of our country. How many are there?' What is their mileage? How are they constructed? By whom or by what power— individual, corporate, town," city, county, state or-nation—are they made and controlled? What do they cost for making and maintenance? Which are good and which Eire best? , What are the systems by, which, they are connected and projected to facilitate traffic and promote the development of our land and its resources? .For these inquiries the answers must wait. We must first feel 'the need and the spirit of inquiry in this direction; .then obtain the facts, then collate and systematize them, as in other .scientific directions.—Outlook. Every man having a beard should keep it an even and natural color, and if it is not so already, use Buckingham's dyes and appear tidy. It is strange that some people will suffer for years from rheumatism rather than try such a remedy as Ayer's Sarsaparilla; and that, too, iu spite of the assurance that it has cured so many others who were similarly afflicted. Give it a trial. Bucklen's Arnica Salve, The Best Salve in the world for Gats Bruises, Sores, Ulcers, Salt Eheum, Fever Sores, Tetter, Chapped Hands, Chilblains.

Deserving Praise, * "We desire to say to our citizens, that for years we have been selling Dr. "King's New Discovery for Consumption, Dr. King's New Life Pills, Bucklen's Arnica Salve and Electric Bitters, and have never handled remedies that sell as well, or that have given such universal satisfaction. We do not hesitate to guarantee them every time, and we stand ready to refund the purchase price, if satisfactory results do not follow their use. These remedies have won their great pojiularity purely on their merits. Nichols Bros., Druggists. . 1 A flatter of Public Concern. There is hardly any subject of public concern in which I take so deep an interest as the matter of improving our roads. Their condition is a disgrace to bur eotintry and not.only a disgrace, but an injury which has attained to the proportions of a calamity. The present condition of our roads undoubtedly costs the country, and the farmers of it especially, every year vastly more that the interest on the largest sum necessary to put them in perfect order. It seems strange that this country, so far in advance of others in most things, should, as a simple matter of fact, he behind the whole civilized world in this sort of internal communications. There is no doubt in my mind that the value of agricultural property, throughout the state of New York especially, would beyastly increased. but for this condition of the roads, which really makes life, a burden to those attempting to reside upon our farms. This is one cause jvhy so many energetic, farmers get out of the farming-districts and into the villages and cities. When one sees what our sister republics of France and Switzerland are doing in regard to roads, the condition of our own republic in this respect is all the more amazing.— Andrew D.
