It is now for the people uf Los An- peles ciunity to say it they are to have a system n< gin id marls that, will (K> far ahead of anything "f t'" 1 kind yet attempted in H>o UtiHerl States. At a meeting of the, Executive Committee of the (Joocl Roads Association of Los Anpeles county, there WHS named n campaign com- .mittee that will push with vigor the proposition to issue $U,000.000 in bonds for carrying out the project. Prominent men from all parts of the county (except Covina) have been named ou the committee and they will get to work at once. It is planned to hold the bond alectiou at as early a date as.possible—probably on August 1. KEPORT READY. ' The Highway Commission, composed of C. D. Daggett, George H. Bixby and Martin C. Marsh, after months of work, in which they have been assisted by the most competent road engineers of the United States, have prepared a comprehensive plan for a good roads system throughout the county. H is settled that the Supervisors will accept the recommendations of the commission that has made a study of the subject, though, after the report is officially filed, there will be an opportunity for the public to be heard and for such changes to be made as may bt considered advisable. The maiu recommendations of the commissioners have been printed from time to time. Ou the whole, the report contemplates a system of roads that will bring all sections ii to close communion, giving ranchers free access to markets and shipping points, affording tourists and residents fine drives to the points of interest, connecting cities and towns, j anif 'providing highways that will connect with tbe main roads of adjoining counties. A recent meeting of the Executive Committee of the Good Roads Association was attended by the following members: S. A. Butler, president; P. VV. Blanchard, first vice-president; A. P. Fleming, secretary; A. P. (irifflth, treasurer; Thomas Earley, Harry Barndollar, C. D. Manning, George D. Whitcomb, and T. J. Waklor. To this committee was mado a report by a subcommittee, Thomas Earley, chairman, recommending that the good roads campaign be conducted by the following men, to be known as the Campaign Committee: C. D. Dangett, George H. Bixby, Martin C. Marsh, Thomas Earley, H. A. Butler, F. VV. Blanchard, P. -1. Beveridge, Harry Barndollar, A. P. Fleming, C. D. Manning, T. J. Walker, George D. Whitcomb and A. P. Griffith. These recommendations were adopted unanimously, and Mr. Daggett, as chairman, to visit personally evnry Board of Trade or Chamber i;f Commerce in Loa Angeles county and to have these bodies name special committees to take charge, of the bond elections in their respective districts. The general opinion among members of the Executive committee ih that the bond (duct ion should be hold as early an possible; also that politics should tin kept entirely out of the question of good roads. Homo of the Supervisors in talking of the matter .say they believe the election could be called for the early part (if August, even after giving two or three weeks for public consideration of tho report of the. Highway Commission. VALUE OF PUBLICITY. Steve Brodie, the Bridge Jumper, as • Self Advertiser. I Curiously enough, the man who, In my opinion, had the keenest intuition of the value of publicity and used It to the greatest personal advantage, when we consider his humble beginnings and the H mil oil sphere of his endeavor, never really knew how to read and write. I knew lum lirsi: as a young street urchin, making his living by selling newspapers, blacking hoots, running errands and doing such odd Jon" \s fell hi ills way, and it was ch'elly hroiigh selling newspapers. whose leadlines alone lie was barely able to leeipiier, that he gained that knowledge of what Park row culls "news rallies." which one tinds in every train- «H.l and efficient city editor. It was on the strength -<f this knowledge that tills bootblack went one day to a well known wholesale liquor dealer on the east side and proposed that lie should establish him in n saloon on lower Bowery. The liquor dealer was aghast at his presumption until he learned his scheme; then he capitulated at once, and within a few days the papers had been signed and twenty-four hours' option secured on rickety and. from nearly every imaginable point of view, undesirable premises near Canal street and directly under the noisiest and dustiest and oiliest part of the elevated railroad. This done, the hoot- black made ills way to the very center of the Brooklyn bridge, climbed hastily to the top of the parapet and, heedless of the warning shouts of the horrified onlookers and the swift rush of a panting cop, dropped into the seething waters below. It was an unknown youth with an earning capacity of a few dollars a week who disappeared beneath the surface of the East fiver, but it was an enterprising young man, an east side celebrity, in fact, all ready for the divine oil of publicity and with an assured income and possible fortune In his grasp, whose nose reappeared very shortly above the muddy surface of the water and who was helped by willing and officious hands into a rowboat, where dry clothing awaited him, together with hearty congratulations on the fact that he alone, of all those who had attempted to jump the bridge, had escaped with his life. The next day the name of Steve Brodie was (lashed from one end of the country to the other, and within a very few hours after his discharge from custody—he was arrested on the charge of trying to take his own life—he was standing behind his own bar, serving drinks to the crowds who came to gape at Steve Brodie. the bridge jumper, and to pour their money into his coffers.—James L, Ford In Success Maga/.ino.

Many wriU'rs. including the famous Ouicla, have died* leaving behind them unfinished books. One of the host known Is, of course. Dickens' "The Mystery of Edwin Mrood," a re- innrkalily clover story, and one; Khc/w- Ing no signs of diminishing vitality, although lie was actually at work upon it up to within a 1'ew hours of his death. Dickens' groat, rival, Thackeray, again, left behind him not one only, but two uiilinlshed stories. One of these. "Dcuis Duval." promised to rank with his best work. Unfortunately, however, he had completed only se'.t:, chapters when lie was stricken dovn. * Scott, too, left a tale uiiended—"The Siege of Malta"—written while lie was on his last futile journey in sea roll of health. This work has never been published, although more than two- thirds of it was completed at tin; time of his dc;''h. Then there was "St. Ives," left un- finishfd by K. L. Stovenson. as was "Xoph," by Helen .lacksou, and "Illiiid F.ove." by Wilkio Collins. l!ue- klc never e.'impiclcd his "History of Civilisation," although lie toiled at it for twenty years. Among fa::io'is poems that were never compiled mention may be made of Myron's "Don .Juan," Keats' "Hyperion." Coleridge's "Chrislabel" anil CJray'H "Agrippina." Spenser's "FaeHe Queen.-." too. is no more than a fragment, although a colossal one.
