We have no hesitation In saying that
the road would be of more benefit to the
city than a half doxen fair*, a docen May

It would build up tha .county and Ihu*
add to the permanent trade of the city.

In the imputation of that borough

The other day one of England's veteran-:
Field Marshal Blr Frederick I*. Haines,
celebrated his Hat birthday.
Just slxty-one year* ago he began his
career as a warrior, and fifty-five years
age he went through hi, first .-ampuls",
seeing most of the fighting that look
plara tn the ButleJ campaign <f IMS. Al
most the first time he smelt powder he
His next campaign was that In the
Punjab In IMS-9, and later he fought
through the 111-managed Crimea. Twen
ty year* later he w* made commander
in-chief In India, and was specially thank
ed hy parliament for his tact and energv
in the Afghanistan operation*
The old warrior is hale und hearty and
still has nn opinion of hie own. It Is told
of him that a dictum of Lord Wol,eley's
was quoted against one of his own. Blr
Frederick rapped hia cane on the floor
