Paea Street Baltimore my every wednesday is the place to buy your formation upon a request. This is very desirable As it is necessary for the state Highway department to keep posted As to conditions existing in different counties in most of the state Aid Laws the initiative in obtaining state Aid rests with the county or township authorities. This is a Wise provision because in the first place the local authorities Are in better position to know what roads it will be to the greatest advantage of the county or township to improve and in the second place they Are Best Able to determine the extent of the county s ability to share in the expense of such an improvement. Another consideration of great importance in this connection is that if the initiative were to rest entirely with the state there would be a certainty of conflict of authority Between the state and the counties resulting in the ultimate failure of the state Aid plan. The Only Case in which the roads can be built by the state without the full and Hearty co operation of the counties or townships is where the state pays the entire Cost of building and maintaining the roads. Most of the Laws provide that state Aid shall not be granted until the application of the local authorities has been approved by the state Engineer which enables the Engineer to exercise a sort of supervisory Power Over the selection of the roads to be improved to the end that the various roads throughout the state shall conform to a general system. All surveys plans specifications and estimates for state roads and Bridges should be made by the state Highway engineers of lace thus insuring uniformity and a High degree of excellence. All improvements to Cost Over say $2,000 should be let to contract As it has been found that this Means Economy both in time and Money and with proper supervision will usually give better results than could be obtained otherwise. Some of the states provide that the whole Cost shall be paid in the first instance by the state the counties or townships being required to reimburse the state for their share at a fixed time after the Road is improved. Bridges and culverts should be considered As a part of the Road and the state should Aid in their construction within proper limitations in the same manner As for the Road itself. When the work is let to contract the contractor must of necessity Advance Money in the performance of his contract and is therefore entitled to receive partial payments thereon As the same progresses but not Over 85 per cent of the contract Price of the work should be paid in Advance of its full completion and acceptance. The state Highway Engineer should be required to keep All roads built by the Aid of the state in proper repair the total Cost of such repairs to be paid by the state the counties and townships to reimburse the state in the same Man her As for the construction of the Road.

Virginia experience and Adulca on Motoda of combating Post in describing the cabbage Clubfoot disease which has inflicted injury on the cabbage growers of Virginia the agricultural Experiment station of the state says when a Field is badly infected with this disease it May appear at the seedling stage As a dwarfing of the Young plants but the Fields Are not usually badly enough infected the first season to Manifest the disease until the cabbage is half grown. In districts where the disease bus just begun to get a foot bold the grower notices that the plants which Are being infected show a tendency to Wilt on Bright sunny Days although at night they recover and do not Wilt on the following Day unless it is again Bright and warm. Such plants May succeed in making enough growth to produce a scalable cabbage although it is somewhat undersized and slightly the principle of state hid and state supervision seems to offer the Best solution of the. Road problem. The first state to adopt state Aid was new Jersey a Law having been passed by the legislature of that state in 1891. Since that time about two thirds of the states of the Union Hare adopted some form of state Aid or state supervision in order to receive the Aid of the state the counties or townships Are required to pay a portion of the Cost this amount varies in the different states from 25 to 50 per cent but in some of the states the whole Cost of private sales assortment in tote state.

Onancock a a Dollar saved is a Dollar made photo by Virginia agricultural Experiment station. Well developed Case of clu8boot. Loose. The earlier the Plant is infected with the disease the smaller is the head produced. If the diseased Plant is pulled up one fluids that it has a swollen and contorted Root in place of the Fine fibrous roots of the Normal Plant. This explains the wilting when one re members that the soil and its dissolved food substances Are taken up through the fibrous roots. When the plants Are infected at the seedling stage they Are usually killed before the season is half Over and the infected areas May be seen but rely Bare of cabbage. The swollen contorted roots which have robbed the Plant of its food material begin to decay in the soil in the latter part of the season and continue the process of decay aided by frosts and soil bacteria so that nothing of them is see the following Spring. The disease is caused by a fungus and the following methods of treatment Are recommended avoid introducing any material into the Field which May carry the germs of the club Root from diseased Fields. Guard especially against diseased soil and diseased cabbage plants. Practice crop rotations which will allow at least three years Between crops of cabbage rutabagas or turnips. Apply stable manure to the crop which precedes cabbage but not to the cabbage crop itself. If acid phosphate is applied the same Rule would bold. Lime will More successfully counteract the club Root disease than other substances. Apply it at the rate of 100 bushels or More per acre one or two years previous to planting the cabbage.

It is utterly useless to establish a state Highway system without at the same time providing an adequate source of Revenue. Unless there is u surplus in the Treasury for this Pur pose a special tax should be levied or a state Bond Issue should be authorized. On the theory that automobiles Are destructive to improved roads most of the state Aid states provide that the proceeds of automobile licenses aver Ami above the expenses connected with issuing such licenses be applied to the state Highway fund and used for the purpose of constructing and maintain ing the roads.

The inhabitants of the Ocean like those of the land Are affected by the climate. Arctic land plants cannot nourish at the Equator and in the Arctic and the Antarctic oceans Marine plants Are found that Are unable to survive in warm water. Among the most remarkable of these cold water plants Are the Laminar aclae a kind of seaweed which sometimes attains a Gigantic size exceeding in length the longest climbing plants of the tropical forests and developing huge stems like the trunks of Trees. Investigation has shown that these plants flourish in the coldest Waters of the Polar seas and that they never Advance farther from their frigid Homes than to fhe limits of a summer temperature in the Ocean. The genial warmth destroys them just As a Polar blast shrivel tropical Flowers.

Although our Earth cannot in any vital sense last longer than the Sun it May last less Long for intrinsic cause. Life is dependent not Only on the Sun but on the presence of air. When this air departs life will depart too. Now the Earth a air is going slowly but firely evaporating into space. A if it All goes before the Sun becomes extinct the Earth s surface life will lapse while the Sun still shines. Both processes the evaporation of the air and the Cooling of the. In no will require Long eras of ,.but the second process will be much the slower of the two. So we May expect the last inhabitants of the Earth to die of Lack of breath rather than from want of Lowell in youths companion.
