running across anything vrong with
the roads immediately report the same
to bliu. In this way tourists those
who are actually using the roads
will not only aid the state, but them
selves, in keening the highways In the
best of condition.
"The upkeep of motor cars," says
Mr. Lyon, "will this year bo reduced
per cent. In my mind, on account
of repairs to highways being inr.de."
Towns are this year raising by
taxes for highway improvement the
sum of $2,504,075.23. The state la
turning over to the towns to aid them
in this work $1.5ftS.O70. Bridge work

the melting effect byond the borders

GRADES AND GOOD
Highways Traveled hy Heavily Loadod
Vehicles Should Ce Kept Down
to Three Per Cent.
t;rado on a
i the hill.
f.-ct ..; bia' since traveled ,r.
A ten per cent, prade mean.s
ten feet rise In each hundred feet so
traveled. A one per cent, grade, then,
means that In travelin;' up hill cue
mile an ascent Is made of 52.8 feet,
while a ten pur cent trade means a
rise In altitude of 528 feet in a mile.
Accurate tests have shown that a
horse which can pull l.nOO pounds on
a level road c?.u pull only S10 pounds
on a rise of one foot in fitly, and on a
rise oi one foot in Ion he can pull
im iKiund. These facts show
that tho 'erw'ct" load than can be
hauled over a road Is tlie load which
cm be taken up the steepest hill on
that road, or through tho deepest
i"ud hole. It is therefore advised
that all highways traveled by heavily
loaded vehicles should be kept within
a three or four per cent, grade if
practicable. To do this may rc'iuire
a change of location to g at around
bills, nlwayi iping in mind that tho
lower the err-lo the larger the !o?d
may be hauled and the c il of haulage
l:ept at the lowest point.

tho wnMiaieii and polictmen who ic
maimit in the building through the
night. He procured two large Lng
lisli v.alnu's and securely tied the half
shells to the four feet Of a pet cat and
carefully turned her hxiso In Statuary
hall. 'Ii ,' noise of tho-e shells on the
marble lloor at ini liiis'it, In the senii
darUncss as I lie cidti acted cat seam

gird to tliis particular hutiut is that
on certain days, presumably anniver
saries, ihe bout and huddled up figure
of a woikiuan with his tools may be
seen Hitting through the section. The
iouudaiiou for this hit" a doubtless
arose from the account of the death
of a workman which occurred there
during the early days of the construc
tion of the capitol. He lost his foot
ing upon a scaffold and was killed by
the fall to the floor. "
The wraith of John Quincy Adams,
from all narrative? on the subject,
sarins to be the one most often en
countered. At times tt Is alleged that
he may be seen in Statuary ball, for

is ah- credited with roaming about

There is also the story of Gen. Lo

serve the doings of the committee on
