Secretary Houston of the depart
ment of agriculture says that the
state and federal governments should
work together for highway improve
ment in order that a large proportion
of the money annually spent for road
construction may not be wasted.
In his own department the office of
public roads has been demonstrating
the value of proper road building by
the construction of certain ohject
lesson roads, and the forest seruco
is carrying out his idea of national
and state co-operation in ros. : build
ing. The law requires that ten per
cent of the gross receipts from 1he
national forests shall be spen1. in the
states in which the forests are it
ed. This money is expended for road
imnrnvAiiiPiif- under direct control o
the secretary of agriculture."
The amuont appropriated under this
act, based on the receipts of the na
tional forests for the fiscal year end
ing June 30, 1913, is $234,63S.6S. From
the 1912 receipts for this ten per cent
road item, there is an additional $134.-
S31.10, which is still available.
In administering the ten per ant
road fiivid, forest officers charged with
the ;.ctual plans and expenditures in
th neighborhood of . their forests
tiave, in almost all cases, searvrd an
r.;ual nr. a larger co-ope i a tivc. f-iud

of certain pieces of road.
With the money thus expended
many important roads are heing built
or put in lepair. One on the "Wyo
ming national forest, six miles long,
make accessible to farmers a large
body of timber and opens up a re
gion of great scenic beauty. In
northwestern Arizona, part of the
fund will be used in connection with
the LeFevre-Bright Angel road, im
portant because it makes accessible
to tourists the Grand Canyon of th3
Colorado. In one place, the Ocean-to-Ocean
Highway crosses the Apache
national forest, Arizona, and on this
project the forest service and the
local authorities co-operated enthusi
astically. On the Florida national
forest, in western Florida, steel bridges
and graded roads have, under the
stimulus of this fund, taken the place
of corduroy, bog and sand.
This federal road fund is now
available in all national forest states

similar fund will become available w
states in which eastern national for

WORLD SHORTAGE IN

exists in the world's crop of grain
for 1913. The supply is nearly 10
per cent less than last year. The total

bushels of the five grain staples. This
shortage is not made up by potatoes,
the world's supply of which is no
greater than last year, and 300 million

He holds it possible that public de
mand will increase for regulation of
all the financial operations concerned
with the granting of loans, though
the difficulties of effective action in
such matters are evident. However,
he emphasizes the value of publicity
for business data and the need that
reliable information be available to,
the public concerning profits, credits,
etc., so that measures of precaution
may be taken "when prosperity is
seen -to be breeding a crisis."
He commends the usefulness of
much professional business forecast
ing that is now being done, and says,
that particularly valuable would be
better public information concerning
construction work done or contracted
for, changes in interest rates upon
long-terms loans, statistics of . unem
ployment, and statistics showing the
relative fluctuation he urges. The
growth of public control over corpor
ate activity is constantly increasing
the government's power to aid the
public with such information, but it
should be issued before its value has
become chiefly historical.
"So -long as the process of making
and distributing useful goods," says
Professor Mitchell, is subordinated to
the process, of making . money, the
community's' interest in -steadying the
pace of economic activity can be pro
moted by giving all business men
alike the best possible opportunities
for knowing the. present and forecast
fng the future." To steady the busi
ness cycles" is exceedingly to be de
sired by the community, for business
depression means "physical priva
tions, anxieties," and humiliations" for
ced upon" the wageearner by inability
to find work,' and these are prolific
sources of further evils intemper
ance, prostitution, chronic idleness,
the desertion of families, and the
stunting of children." Profits shrink
in larger proportion than wages, and
all classes "pay a heavy price in un
certainty and in sympathetic partici
pation in the sufferings of others." .
Professor Mitchell's conclusions
as to the causes of the alternations of
periods of prosperity and of depres
sion are drawn from tables and charts
of his own preparation in which, with
great labor, he has assembled inval
uable data regarding business history
since 189Q in the United States, Eng
land, France and Germany. He il
luminates the facts concerning fluc
tuations in- wholesale and retail prices
for food, relative cost of raw and man-
uiacturea articles, ana ot mineral, tor
est, animal, and farm products; rela
tive prices of wages and commcTdities;
variations in the values of standard
bonds and stocks, fluctuations, in in
terest rates on short and long-time
loans, seasonal variations in interest,
bankruptcy data, relative Jprices of
securities and commodities, railway
earnings production of coal and iron,
wheat and gold; bank clearings; im
ports and exports, employment and
unemployment, variations in the mon
etary stock of gold in the United
stateswhich had triple4 in the past
twenty years; bank deposits, loans,
and reserves, and the nature of bank
resources and liabilities; the ratio of
bond sales ,to stock sales, and new

data show economic history during a
period of twenty years when the pop
ulation of the United States leaped
