Having yazed on the beautiful fields and the scattered hamlets, connectcd by spacious roads, I fell into a profound slumber. While slumbering I dreamt '■ It was the year 1924, and 1 was being taken for a motor lour through the shire. While gliding along I was struck by the narrowness of the roads, and I perceived at each mile there was a nook or loop in the roadway. ' What mean, ' said I, ' these narrow roads in a fine country like this, aud why these loops at every mile ? ' My host in formed me that a decade before these roads were three chains wide, but for each year the lirge landholder had taken up nineteen feet, leaving the strip of road, eight feet wide, as we now beheld it. ' These nooks,' said he, 1 are passing places, aud as I see a traction engine, half a mile away, coming towards us, you will observe...
