But lam afraid, Sir, that the members of Roads Boards can't all see it in that light, or agree with Mr. Steere that it.would be» advisable.for them to do so.

«l'ïïêfEMSTF. A RUSSIAN KING LEAR. rFrom.the German of Iran Turgénjev.] (Continued.) Three days afterwards, Martin Petrovitch was buried. My mother paid all the expenses. His death had been a great shock to her, and had caused her much grief, and she had ordered that the question of cost should not stand in therway of making the arrangements as com- plete and impoieing as possible. She did not go to the church herself, because she did not wish, as she said to set eyes upon those two abotninable creatures and upon their horrible Jew accomplice. Bat she sent Kvicinski, and Shitkov also.-the latter from this time forth she never called anything else than ' old woman. Souvenir was not allowed to appear in her pre- sence.
