Calomel crashes into sour bile like

GROWTH OF IMPROVED ROADS
Mileage of Surfaced Highways Has
Been Increasing at Rate of
16,000 Miles Yearly.
tapid increase in total expendi
tures for roads and bridges, growth
of building and.malutenance activities
under state supervision, and a sharp
decrease in the proportion of contribu
tions in the form of statute labor
mark the development 'of highway
work in the United States during the
past 12 years. These facts are
brought out by statistics for the cal
endar year 1915, recently compiled by
the ofllce of public roads and rural en
gineering of the department.
The total length of public roads in
the United States outsht the limits
of incorporated towns and cities was
about 2,452,000 miles on January 1,
1916. Of this, about 2?7,000 miles,
or 11.3 per cent, were improved with
some form of surfacing. The mile
age of surfaced roads has been in
creasing at the rate of about 10,000 a
year, and in 1915 approximately one
half of this increase was made under
the supervision of state highway de
partments. In addition these de
partments supervised the maintenance
of nearly 52,000 miles of main and
The increase in expenditures for
road and bridge work in the United
States has been from approximately'
$80,000,000 per year in 1904 to about
$282,000,000 in 1915, an increase of
more than 250 per cent. The expendi.
ture of state funds during this same
period increased from about $2,550,00(
to more than $53,000,000. In addition
more than $27,000,000 of local fund
was spent under state supervision i1
1915, bringing the total road an
bridge expenditures managed by th
stutes to $80,415,6099. This amount i
greater than the total expenditur-s fo
I roads and bridges from all sources I
An increase in the uses of better an
more expensive types of roads also I
shown by the recently compiled statis
tics. This development has been due
in large part, to the great increase it
automobile traffic. It is estinated
that there are now approximately tw
and one-hltf million automobiles iit
use of the roadls of the country, om
one car for every mile of rodd. Tht9
jpresent motor traftic is in excess of
traffle of all sorts 12 years ago.
The cash road and bridge expendi
tures of the United States averaged
only $28 per mile of rural roadts in
1004. In 1915 this average had growna
to $109 per mile. New Jersey led ali
other stattes, both it 1904 and in 1915.
with $221 and $475 per mile, resper
tively. Nevada madle thle least expendi
tutre in both years-$3.72 per mile in
1904 andl $17 per mille in 1915.
