THEY WANT A CHANGE OF METHODS In the MnimccmcHt of the Public Illghwiiys --Tuesday's Komi Meeting. Although but short notice had been given, quite a good many taxpayers attended the good roads meeting at the court house on Tuesday afternoon last. All present seemed to be of one opinion, in opposition to the nld methods of working the public roads. Mr. Calvin Satterfield, of Greensborough, chairman, and Mr. H. B. Messenger, of Federalsburg, secretary, were the officers chosen. There was ,t general discussion of the road question, now so much before the public mind. Mr. Edward E. Goslin advocated the use of wider wagon tires, which have been found, he said, in m a n y parts of the c o u n t r y to be so efficacious in keeping the roads smooth and free from the deep ruts and cuts which the narrow tires of heavily- laden wagons are sure to make. The wide tires are of much lighter d r a f t , he explained, and^a pair of horses can haul a much heavier load with them, provided the roads are good. But one of the best things in favor of the wide-tread vehicle is that with them the roads, once pat in order, will remain so much longer than without them. Thus the taxpayers and everybody else will be benfited by the adoption of the broad tires. Mr. Goslin cited recent experiments he had made on the roads near Federalsburg. He suggested that in order t h a t the plan- favored be gradually adopted, and that no hardship may be imposed upon those who own the two and two-and-a-half inch tires, the county commissioners bo authorized, by legislative e n a c t m e n t if necessary, to pay a small bounty to all who will substitute the wide (four-inch) tire. In a few years the narrow ones would disappear entirely. As soon as the good effects of the new tires became manifest to all, and the benefits would very soon be seen, only the new form of wheel' on tiro exerted faction of the people,anda verycou- siderable increase of their property values, and all at a much less exp e n d i t u r o of money than has heretofore been made. The following resolutions were passed unanimously: Rfiolvert, That it ib tlic sense of this convention tluit the convenience of tl.c people of the county demands the construction of 11 i'lrbt-uhiss highway from Mnrydel to F cdcralsburp;, vin Denton, to be followed by such lateral roadways «b in the judgment of the county commissioners may bo thought most practicable. Resolved, That some practical plan should bo devised and put into operation by the county commissioners for the encouragement of the use of the four-inch tires on the highways. Also the f o l l o w i n g : Wn RRTCAS, In the old plans still in practice for repairing the county roads there is involved an expenditure of money ranging from §6,000 to $10,000 annually, niul that u complete outfit of implements, with a force of twenty men, car. be employed at nn expense aggregating less than $30 per dny, and that the amount of money now expended will lomploy nnd pay for the services of such a methodical outfit every day in the year that is fit for road- rcpuiring, therefo re, be it Jiesolved,· That it is the emphasized sense of this meeting that a radical chiingo be inaugurated and put in practice by the county commissioners, such as will harmonize w i t h the ideas above set forth. Mr. Messenger proposed that delegates to the State convention, to ba held at Annapolis on Thursday next, he appointed, and the following were named: James Green, Lawrence Satterfield, Willard C. Todd, Henry B. Messenger, James D. Fleming, T. L. Day, and W. H. Dean. This committee will look after Caroline's interests. The meeting was adjourned, subject to the call of the chairman. I'reston. Miss Ella Williams gave a very pleasant party at her home, near town, on Friday evening of last week. To give a charm to the scone the lawn bad been beautifully illuminated with Japanese lanterns. The time was spent in the enjoyment of music and various kinds of amusements. At a late- h o u r the guests assembled in the dining-room which wouM be purchased, and on these, of course, there would be no b o u n t y offered. Mr. Goslin also cited the results of tests made in different parts of the country, among which were some made at the instance of the Studebaker Bros. Manufacturing Company. The results of these tests were'carefully compiled, and some of the conclusions of the committee are as follows : · '·You can haul 260 pounds more on n good, hard, sandy road with ft 4-inch tire, with the same amount cf power exerted, than you can with n H inch tire." '·You can haul 605" pounds more good, hard, level roads with H 4-inch with the same amount of -power ex than you can with a li-inch tire." "You can haul 471 pounds more on level gravel roads with a 4-inch tire, with the same amount of power exerted, than YOU can with a H-inch tire." You can haul 110 pounds more on level gruvel roads with a -1-inch tire, with the same amount of power exerted, than you can with u IJ-iuch tire." Mr. Messenger corroborated what Mr. Goslin had said, especially concerning the local tests oE the brond tires. Mr. Lawrence Satterfield had also used them, and had found them of much lighter draft and more satisfactory. Mr. Calvin Satterfield cited other instances where they had been very satisfactorily used. Mr. J. Boon Dukes spoke favorably of the proposed bounty as a means to secure tke broad tires, and Mr. Jonathan Evitts thought this a wise step to take. Mr. J. W. Kerr likewise endorsed wide tires, but said good roads must come along with them or they would be useless. He attacked the road- working system which has prevailed for so long a time here as unworthy of the progress and advancement of this day, and the taxpayers should demand its abolishment without delay. Why continue to waste thousands of dollars as we have done ? All admit that K large part of the money used in road repairing has been utterly wasted. Every one should be interested in adopting some method whereby the people May secure a greater value for their money. He said there wer« many instances in road expenditures where the benefits did not amount to one per cent.! Mr. Messenger could see no good reason why we may not have first- class road in 1 Caroline. We find clay, sand and gravel in sufficient quantities in all parts of the county. These are essential in making good roads. But the road-maker must know how to use them. Mr. Messenger did not feel willing to commit himself to the bill to authorize a road engineer for the State at a large salary, but he suggested that our county commissioners adopt a plan which had been f o u n d to work so well in Virginia, namely : appoint a road-master who knows and will f a i t h f u l l y attend to his business, equip him with a gang of good men, with implements and teams, and let the work be done for the whole county, or by districts, wherever needed, the road force to be engaged in no other business d u r i n g the road working season. Mr. Calvin Satterfield said that as there must be a beginning iu good road-making somewhere, he suggested that the first step be the re building of the most direct road from the most northern point to the southern Caroline line, from Marydel to Federalsburg, via Denton, and the making smooth and first- class that very important highway. Mr. SatterSeld suggested further that there might be found at and several miles above Greensborough excellent marl · pits. Marl, it was shown, would make good roads. Mr. Kerr explained that a gang of properly equipped workers, with an experienced road-maker at their bead, all the time would in two years completely metamorphose the highways of Caroline, to tbe great satis- had been tastefully decorated, to partake of refreshment. Among those present were Miss Addie Corkran, of Seaford, Mrs. Rosa Burgess, Misses Ella Harrison,.

Jollli. 1: -(I IJ On Monday e v e n i n g last, in the vestry-ioom of Christ Church, Denton, a chanter of the St. A n d i e w ' s Brotherhood was organized, The two rules of this great brotherhood will explain its objects. The consti- t u t i o n of the oider is as follows: OBJECT.--The sole object of the Brotherhood of Sc. Andrew is the spread of Christ's kiugdoiu aiuoug young men, and to this end -every man desiring to become a member thereof must pledge himself to obey the rules of the Brotherhood so long as he shall be a member. These rules are t w o -- t h e rule of prayer aud the rule of service. The rule of prayer is to pray daily for the spread of Christ's kingdom among young men and for God's blessing upon tlic labors of the Brotherhood. The rule of service is,to make an earnest effort each week to bring at least one young man w i t h i n hearing of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as set forth in the services of the Church and in y o u n g men's Bible classes. BASIS OF UNION.--Any organization of y o u n g men, iu any parish, mission, educational institution of the Protestant Episcopal Clmrcb, effected under this name, and with the approval of the rector or minister iu charge, for this object, and whose members so pledge themselves, is entitled to become a- Chapter of the Brotherhood, and, a.s such, to representation in its conventions unless such approval be withdrawn. No man shall be an active member of a Chapter who is not baptized, and no member shall be elected presiding officer or delegate to the convention who is not also a communicant of the Protestant Episcopal Church. The Rov. Gco. S. Fitzhugh, rector, t h u s comments on the objects of the Brotherhood: The man who wears the button with the St. Andrew's cross on it advertises himself as a neighbor to every child of sorrow, especially to young men. He stauds ready to extend a s y m p a t h i z i n g hand to every y o u n g man who is perplexed or worried w i t h the cares of life. He is ready to shield the young iii.au in the h o u r of severe temptation. He stands ready to l i f t him up when he has fallen into the snares of Satan. He stauds ready to give all and every kind of advice that a y o u u g man may need, and especially when he is just entering the fierce battle of life. To the young man in need of a friend, the man with the St. Andrew's b u t t o n says: "Come to me, I am your brother, even to the ends of the earth." This brotherhood extends all over the English-speaking world and is thoroughly organized. It is strictly a layman's organization. It originated w i t h a layman in the United States. The members engage iu all kinds of work for Christ and His Church, though they are bound by only the two rules of prayer and of service. So then he prays for the y o u n g man and then brings h i m , if possible, to Jesus. No pledges of money are required.
