r. NEW JERSEY BOADS. MANY SPLENDID HIGHWAYS IN THE GARDEN STATE. Permanent Rondi and What It Cost* to Keep Them In Repair-How the State Aid Law Provides For High way Improvement. In the matter of permanent road im provement New Jersey has taken a leading part. Having in what is called the metropolitan regions, the sections within forty miles of New York and Philadelphia, many growing cities and towns, the conditions were such as to compel attention and demand a solu tion. A/ter much discussion the pres ent state law was finally enacted and, with slight changes, has remained on the statute book for nearly ten years.

6 Why She ffcCer Succeeded In SHE was an intellectual girl, un commonly so. She expected great things of herself. She easily surpassed her classmates in school studies, looking with con tempt on those who were duller than .herself. She had, in childhood even, a sneer and a criticism for those who were different from herself. She left school and went out to con quer the world. She began with book keeping. She learned it quickly. She obtained place after place. None was equal to her merits, she thought. Other girls rose at 6, took their placed at their desks at 8 sharp, worked till 6 and did not consider themselves abused. She rose at 7, went to work at 8:30, wrought with account book and ledger till 5:30 or G and considered her self the most abused martyr in a city of a million people. She, mind you, did exactly what thousands of other girls do daily in the business world and are thankful they have the work to do; she wailed and grumbled all the time. She came home at ni^ht whining t...

FRUIT TREES IN BLOOM. Apricots and Peaches in Blossom in Snake Uiver Orchards Wo. L. LaFollette of Wawawni has been in town several days this week and reports that the apricots are all in bloom and that peaches are eornmence ing to blossom. He says that the out look for a good fruit crop was never better at thin season of the year. Mr. LaFollette recently returned from a trip through the eaHtern states and says that the crop outlook for peaches is very poor in Michigan and that in Missouri and Arkansas there will hardly be half of a crop, owing to the severe weather which that country has experienced this winter. In Georgia the peach crop will be about 25 per cent short. Should the river produce a good crop of fruit this season, Whitman county orchardists will have the benefit of an exceptional market in the east. Last year the peadi crop was cut short by a late frost and a heavy wind storm in July, both of which are unusual oeeurrancee on Snake river. Changes in Heal Estate Firms. ...
