and nervous that it is well-nigh impos
sible for them to attond to their neces

Slump in Microscopes.
The general depression in tlie op
tical trade is being felt very severely
by British microscope makers, most
of whom are working with reduced
staffs. Some are only working alter
nate weeks. This is partly due, no
doubt, to overproduction during the
war. when a large number of micro
scopes were supplied to the order of
the government, but even taking this
into account, the demand is now ab
normally small. With hospitals pov
erty is a natural excuse, but in other
cases, such as that of schools, it is not
so easy to explain why so few new
instruments are being purchased. Ac
cording to one large firm the great
majority of microscopes now pur
chased are for purposes connected
with mineralogy.—Manchester Guar

LOCAL ROADS FOR LONG HAUL
rllghways Now Being Improved Should
Be Designed to Care for In
crease in Traffic.
(Prepared by tha United States Department
The United States Is now in a period
• >f greut highway development, and in
i few years many roads, which now
;arrv only local traffic originating
largely within five or ten miles of the
road, will be carrying a large percent
ige of through traffic, much of it com
i Jig from outside the state. This is
! :he opinion of officials of the bureau
)f public roads. United States Depart
ment of Agriculture, based upon the
report of two traffic censuses taken by
the bureau In co-operation with the
itate highway department of Connecti
The roads selected were part of a
fairly complete system of highways.
The first census showed an average of
2,007 passenger cars and 281 trucks
passing the recording station a day;
»nd the second, 3,832 cars and 511
trucks. Forty-seven per cent of the
cars came from within the state.
Drivers were questioned as to length
of travel for the day, nnd results
showed average figures of 70 miles and
52.4 miles for the two censuses.
The average haul for truck traffic
wus 47.5 miles, some of them hauling
a distance of 250 miles. Officials point
out that traffic of this nature has de
veloped In a period of >methlng like
ten years on a road which prior to

1910 carried almost entirely local traf
fic. It must be concluded, therefore,
they say, that roads which are now be
ing Improved to form part of through
highway routes should be designed
to take cure of a great deal more than
the local traffic or that which is ex
pecfed to originate locally with the
coming of better roads.
MORE WAR EQUIPMENT READY
Large Amount of Lumber and Other
Material Made Available for
Five million board feet of lumber
and $220,000 worth of other surplus
war material, consisting of steam and
gas engines and machine-shop equip
ment. all unused, recently was made
available to stute highway depart
ments for road construction. The
materinl Is to be distributed by the
bureau of public roads, United States
Department of Agriculture, as were
lurge quantities which were helpful to
many stutes in road building last sea
son. Most of the lumber was Intended
by the army for the construction of
a pier at Charleston, S. C., and Is suit
able for highway bridges. The ma
chinery and equipment are stored as
ordnance supplies ut the Plcatlnny
arsenal, Dover, Del. This material Is
particularly In demand and an allot

the 48 states.
FRENCH ROADS BROKE
Some persons have pointed to
the macadam roads of France as
the type of roads that America
should adopt. Tet these persons
have, perhaps, not thoroughly In
vestigated present conditions.
These roads, which have been a
matter of pride to France for
centuries, are all maintained by
patrolmen. Each man devotes
his time the year around to the
keeping up of a few hundred
yurds of roadway. But, even so,
these roads went to pieces when
heavy truffle was put on them
during the wur. These roads
were built for horse and foot
traffic, and served that purpose
very well, hut motor lorries,
guns, etc., cut up these roads I
