In the last bulletin of the office of public
roads it was stated, that at the cloce of 1909, 8.00
per cenfeof the roads in the United States were
improved. This represents a gain in the total
- road mileage, improyed for the five-year period,
1904-11X)9, of 1.52 per cent, 'or, in other words,
the percentage, of improved roads has increasAl
during this period from 7.14 to 8.(M5 per cent

improved roads has gon(: .well leyond 9 per' cent

On nf the best features of the bill, in my judg
ment, is that providing for the flogging of male of
fenders. The Outlook has very properly protested
against the whipping-post as an ordinary instrument
or Justice. But there are certain kinds of cruel arvd
brutal offenses which are committed by creatures so
beastlike that they can be reached only by being
themselves made actually and physically to suffer.
Wife-beaters come under this class, and so do the
loathsome beings who engage in the white slave traf
fic. The immediate effect of Mr. Lee's law on this
portion of the under-world was quite dramatic. Ac
cording to the reports both of the police and of the
vigilance workers, its passage was the signal for the
beginning of a general exodus of the professional
white-slavers from England, so that both trains and
beats for the continent of Europe were crowded with
them for several days. It is generally admitted that
tLe decisive feature in shifting them was the threat
Oi the lash, the one thing they cannot stand. As the
London Times phrased it, "By a happy provision of
nature it appears that the skin becomes more tender
as the moral sense becomes more atrophied."
Mr. Lee may live long and spend all his life in
power and accomplish much, and yet never accom
plish anything that will rightly give him greater sat
isfaction or that will represent a greater gain for
humanity. He has made all good men and women
his debtors, in whatever part of the world they dwell.

public improvements inHonolulu or the terri
tory, the example of a chapter of the Order of
Eastern Star in Berlin, New Hampshire, might
be worth considering. A minute of the United
States senate tells of a petition from that so

for the erection of a public building in that
city." Here it has been only the commercial
bodies that have interested themselves in such
matters, with the addition latterly of improve

thus perishable, products are, wasted, perceptibly
increasing the cost of living.
. In the five years preceding March, 1912, the
office of -public roads of the department of agri
culture has biiilt 2i5 object-lesson roads; in all,
. about 300 miles of road fifteen feet wide, and by
expert advice aided. in the formulation of more
, than 650 moel county road systems, resulting
in most instances in beneficial reforms. It has
also assisted twenty-six states m effecting equi-
r table stateaid plans.. The secretary looks for-
wkrd to the coming year as promising better 're-'
6ults,than at any time in the history of the move
ment for improved highways.
