the same outlay again this fall if
something is not soon done to keep
cattle away from it.
Now, this is an age of progress,
or ought to be, and, as we have
pointed out before, a nice sidewalk
run along the edge of ditch, would
not only have the desired effect
of protecting the ditch but would
be a means of saving money and
au ornament to the district.
The cost of cleaning out the
ditches just once would go a long
way towards paying the first cost
of even covering over the ditches
completely. But just a couple or
three plank sidewalk will do the
work of protecting the ditch against
the depredations of cattle. If a
sidewalk should have any objectionable features in it, how would it be
to tence it off with barbed wire ?
A versifier in the Bangalore Mag

glish  language:
When the English tongue we speak,
Why is break not rimed in freak?
Will you tell me why it's true
We say sew but likewise few,
And the maker of a verse
Cannot cap his horse with worse?
Beard sounds not thc same as heard;
Cord is different from word;
Cow is cow, bnt low is low;
Shoe is never rimed wit.i foe.
Think ol hose and dose and lose,
And of goose, and yet of choose.
