The virtue that shines out brightest in all that we know of Lincoln i, his Patience. Strong in mind, strong in body, he was }et strongest in that abilitv to suffer meoklv, which, as Christ promised, gives to it s possessors the heritage of the earth. Great glory is Lir.coln's today: 1 n HARD ROADS AND HARD CM 'Wie {Business Jhi^antage-o} Highways to the Community Jit Large. — • his life lie suffered greatly. When, as a volltlr, llie proud Ih'cidmi-ridge- turncd from him in the crowd, spurning his proferred hand, lie showed I'atience. When Seward, his underling, wrote that galling \Thoughts for the President's consideration,\ he took it with such quiet dignity and personal efftieement as only a loft} ,-oul could command. In the black days of the Keoellion, when the Union with all that our flag stands for, seemed about to go.dowu forever, in a slough of corruption and crass incompetency. Lincoln, upon whose shoulders the hea\iest burden rested, stood Patient, Faithful, enduring unto the end. It would be •well if every American schoolboy who has taken part today in the Lincoln exercises, could learn this lesson—could carry away in his heart this moral—that Patience and Humility, least regarded perhaps of all the virtues, are yet. in effect, the greatest of all. From a recent circular letteri «(ued by the Westchester Roads Assn., whose officers ure Jno. I. Bristol, J. Mahew Wninwright, W. \V. Law, Jr and Jno. P. Faure, wo quote the following pithy statement: \The road conditions leading into our County are generally far behind what they should be, and some por­ tions constitute a disgrace t o a sec­ tion to which nature has been most bountiful iu beauty and salubrity, and surely the wealth, brains and obligations of our property owners and newspapers should not be re­ miss in vigorous efforts t o effect a change. As shown in Article II of our By- fcawsy-aw-^bjeets— ace—'r.n tnat* r OOOOOOOOOO\ \LICENSED- CHAUFFEURS. The present system of handing out a licence as machinist to any­ one who is willing to produce two dollars, without the slightest investi­ gation of their ability or personal character, is largely responsible for the deplorable number of automobile accidents which occur daily. An intoxicated chauffeur, seeding along the country roads on his mid­ night \joy-ride a young coachman, who has spent a fe w weeks at some garage learning to drive his master's new car, are equally compe­ tent, under the seal of the state, to protect the safety of the public highways. If a thorough examination before a competent board, to­ gether with some reference as to character, were required bv law, some percentage, at least, of the smash-ups would be avoided. W\hy should not Mr. Mead or Mr. Wainwright introduce a hill along these lines? good roads in Westchester County aud t o protect rights of citizens'who use them. \The geographical location of our county, constitutes it the first rei^l country breathing spot that the borne seeker encounters as be mores uoVthward from the great congested city, and the value of .our county's ticreage has no more potent force, than the kind of R OADS over which the home seeker travels. \The following statements we con­ sider unanswerable and they stand out clear aud strong in the light of good business and common sense: 1. Good roads attract the pos­ sible purchaser of a country home. 2. The purchaser of a choice piece of laud usually builds a home upon it. 3. Each home built in a locality increases neighborhood valua­ tions. 5. Every resident becomes a sub­ scriber to and reader of the live newspaperin thenearest village.\ A GOOD WORK WELL BEGUN. The subject of good roads has been very much in the public prints, these last few years, and still it is not one of which the public should begin to tire. Advances have been made, particularly in the neighbor­ hood of our cities; as we of Westchester County may see by looking about us and comparing the present with a decade past. Yet it will not do for us to weary of well doing. There are are still many miles of unfinished highways and connecting roads that need attention and it is not upon the completion of a road that public interest should cease. Equally important is the work of maintenance. Step by step with the perfection of the automobile goes the im­ provement of the public highway, and lx>th together mean a vast in : Urease in wealth'and comfort to all. The work that is'being done by public bodies may be ably seconded by private associatians, and it is therefore encouraging to observe the efforts of such bodies as the Westchester Roads Association along these lines. They deserve the general sympathy and assistance. -Miss Id a Tarbell'a \He knew Lincoln\ papers are receiving a good deal of attention just now.
