A Crushing Reform
Discusses an extract from an article describing the use of a steam roller to grind the granite paths in Hyde Park. Takes this opportunity to lament the reluctance with which 'British local self-government' has accepted their 'duty' to undertake this operation on the granitic roads, and to urge those who have neglected this duty to walk over their own Macadam.
