State Automobile Law Is In Effect No longer can children drive automobiles on the state high ways nor can automobile speed ers drive recklessly over the pub lic road at a speed in excess of 35 miles per hour. The new motor vehicle law, passed by the laBt legislature, became effective on July 6th and will be enforced rigidly, according to the state rangers and others who are en trusted with the enforcement by virture of their officers. The provisions of the law in general are as follows: it is unlawful for any person under the age of 15 years to operate or drive a motor vehicle on a state or county highway. Speed limits: Normal high ways, 35 miles an hour: mountain roads, 20 Platted mountain curves, 12; other curves, 18; on any grade of 10 per cent or more 15 miles regardless of whether the driver is going up or down; on all roads, except curves and grades specified, 20 miles an hour when the vehicle weighs more than 10,000 pounds includ ing the load. All motor vehicles must have dimmers, and search; spot or other lights shall be turned off upon the approach of other vehicles and shall not be turned on until after the approaching vehicle is past. It shall not be necessary, however, to turn off search or spot lights, if they are so directed as to prevent their direct light lrom falling on the left three-fourths of the road and at a distance greater than 30 feet in front of the car to which it is attached. Except when more practicable otherwise, ascending vehicles on mountain roads of 10 per cent grade or more shall have the right of way over descending vehicles. _ _ State To Supervise Road Expenditures With the date of the sale of $2,000,000 worth of state bonds for highway purposes approach ing, Att’y Gen’l Keyes has given an opinion to L. D. Blauvelt, state highway engineer, holding that half of this sum which, un der the provisions of the amend ment authorising the issuance of the bonds, will go to the coun ties, will he handled by the high way department and not by the counties. The impression had gone forth that $1,000,000 would be appor tioned among the counties ac cording to the state highway mileage in each county and that the cash would be turned over to the various boards of county commissioners. Keyes bolds that the money must be placed to the credit of the counties and that it must be expended under the supervision of the highway department. In other words the counties will not receive the cash.—Lincoln County Dem. Notes From Old Wells We are having cloudy weather in this vicinity. There will be preaching next Sunday at Waterville.
