Including r number of cities where no record of permits issued previous to 1912 have been kept and some where compara- tive figures were not obtainable, the total amount involved is slightly ovor lif'.een million dollars. This is some six or seven million dollars loss than the total permits of previous months, but is a remarkably good -record when it is considered that during November building plans diminish materially.

THIS is only one county's experience with concrete'roads. But it five of the experiences of many others. The sooner every town and county makes use of the information which thete other communities have supplied, the sooner will its road fund be invested for permanent satisfactory roads instead of being spent for roads that must soon be paid for, all over again, in the shape of annual repairs.
