Such leading generals as Meade, Longstreet, Sheridan, Humphreys, R. It. Anderson, EweiL Gordon, Seymour, Crook, Merrltt, Stagg, and Kershaw were engaged. The battle took place on April 5, 1865. The scene was the general neighbor- hood of Amelia courthouse, about 80 mlle~ ~est of Petersburg, Vs. .,g THE MAL'AKOFF NEWB Finds Partridge Does Little Harm to Crops The Hungarian, or ~uropean gray, partridge in the United States is not particularly harmful to Crops, studies of $0 birds by the biological survey, United States Department of Agrical- ture, indicate. In the fall and winter these birds feed largely on green leaves, grains of wheat, corn, oats, barley, and seeds of ragweed, foxtail grass, and bind- weed. The cultivated grains seem to be picked up mostly in stubble fields, and ti~e ittvestlgators believe thls indi- cates no Injury to growing crops. Contents of the crops and gizzards of the t~lrds examined showed that animal food nfade up B per cent of their food. The young birds, in par- ticular, displayed a liking for grass- hoppers, beetles, and other Injurious insects. This partridge has been introduced into numerous North American locall- tles and has become well established In some of tlmm. particularly In south- west'ern Canada. Washlngtoa slate, southwestern Wisconsin. southwestern Michigan, and n.rtllwestern Ohio. As It Is a comparatively new bird in this country its habits are Interesting to sportsmen, ornithologisis, and farmers. AmEition Gives Clew to Person's Character If you can persuade a person to out- line to you Just what is his ambition in ilfe you will Ilave secnred a good key to that person's character. Some people want to be rlch. With dill- gence, fl~rlft, and average intelligence, this is perhaps the easiest ambition to achieve, particularly If a little greed Is mixed lilto the recipe. Some people want power and recognition. If they are willing to pay-the price, this am- bition, too. can be achieved. Here, too, gre~l can assist the'crafty climber. Some people want the friendship and respect of their fellow me~. with as much worhlly goods thrown in as is consistent with a life policy of giving everyone else the best of the bargain. Frlendshlp and respect are.the rarest treasures a man can have and the hardest to obtaln.z-Exchange. Universities' BeIinnlng Medieval education was mostly by and for the church. In the early Twelfth e~tury at Bologna in Italy a revived Interest in Roman law at- tracted students, and at Salerno "teachers af medicine drew pupils from many lands, while Pavia became a center for theological study. A university was originally an incor- porated group either of teachers to T- whom Students resOrted, or of stu- dents who hired, and fired, their pro- fessors. Popes and rulers gave privi- leges to these corporations, courses of study became organized, granting of degrees became common, buildings and endowments were accumulated, and by the Fourteenth and Fifteenth centuries scores of universities had been established, many of which, like Oxford and Cambridge, have bad an existence ever sluce. . ,. , - ~ . E=limgd'a There are three "'F~att~ in England, Due'in Berknhire, one oa the downs three miles east of West- bury In Wlltshire, and a third at Lul. worth near Weymouth In Dorsetshire. On the top of the Whiff" Horse hill In Berkshire It a magnificent Roman camp, complete as if left only a few years ago, and on the downs at West. bury the earth works are as perfect as any could be found in France from the World war. As these two horses are only a few miles apart, with their .camps, there seems good reason for believing the legends told ot them to be founded in tact. There is no doubt that battles were fought In that sec- tion. The Dorsetshire horse was cut to commemorate another event. Sycamore Fit Sixties The true sycamore tree, not the buttonwood which is termed the syca- more In this country, Is, in fact, a member of the fig family and is quite common In Egypt. Its wood is of a particularly lasting nature and was employed by the ancient Egyptians for the manufacture of mummy cases. The sycamore of this country has found great popularity as a shade tree and Its wood, while none too strong, hat found considerable use because of its heautlful grain in the manufacture of furniture amt cigar boxes. Pursimmon American Fruit The persimmon is a native flnllt and grows wihl throughout the east- ern United States from Connecticut-' to the t'arollnas and westward to Missouri anti Arkansas. The Ameri- can persimmon Is a:close relative of the Japanese persimmon, or date- plum, which came" origlnally from China. This tree hears a larger and much less astringent fruit th:m the American species and Is more trop Ical, having been grown successfully in southern California.

[ I The highways of Texas are the property of its citizens. They constitute a system of nearly 200,000 miles of road of which 20,000 miles are desig- nated as State highways the remainder are county roads. All types of rind are represented in this system, less than 5% have o.ealled "perma- nent" surface. The total cost of these highways is unknown but it amounts to many hundred million dollars. From 1917 to 1930, inclusive, counties and road districts of the State issued $243,592,834 in bonds for the construction and improvement of roads and bridges. In the two-year period ending August 31, 1930, the State Highway Commission expended $89,032,825, of which $22,488,426 was for maintenance of tbr State highways. In view of these tremendous costs the preservation of our highways from rapid wear and destruction is a matter of very vital interest to their own- ers, viz., the public. It is especially important that they be made to outlast the life of the bonds, which run from 20 to 30 years. The use of the public highways for commercial purposes is not a right but a privilege which may be withheld or granted subject to such restric- tions, regulations and charges as the Legislature may see fit to impose. Such regulations are intended to promote safety, preserve the highways and safeguard the interests of the public. Texas Railroads, which pay the entire cost of construction and mainte- nance of their own roadbeds and, in addi on, make substantial eo#tribu- tions to the cost of Texas highways, are thoroughly regulated with respect to their services, rates, methods and practices. There is no good reason why commercial users of the highways, built and maintained at the expense of the public, should not likewise be regulated to such extent as the public interest requires and pay such chromes as will represent proper compensa- t ion for the privileges granted them. I The statutes governing highway transportation as enacted by the Forty- second Legislature represent the wishes of the citizens of this State and express their desire to give equal rights to all and pecial privileges to none. These statutes should he given a fair trial and their value ascertained. Unless this is done, a chaotic condition in transportation as a whole will surely ensue. II I II J I t
