According to the director of the office of public roads, department of agriculture, there are approximately 2,300,000 miles of rural highways In the United States upon which there is an annual expenditure of about $70,000,000. It is part of the duty of the office named to -give expert advice in the methods of road construction and maintenance and for this purpose It employs a corps of highway engineers, expert road foremen and machinery operators for field duty. When a county or community desires to improve its roads application is made to the office on a form which is furnished upon request. This application provides that the

local authorities shall provide all materials, common labor, teams and fuel, and guarantee the right of way. the office furnishing engineering advice, surveys, estimates, expert supervision and road machinery. This method of instruction is known as the object-lesson road method. In all 113 roads have been constructed in thirty-two states, the larger number being of limestone, granite, gravel, trap and basalt and sand clay. The roads average less than a mile in length and cost from 5 cents to $1 per square yard, according to material used and other conditions.

Harry Kendall Thaw, son of a deceased Fittsburg millionaire, shot and killed Stanford White, a prominent architect, in New York, N. Y., on the night of June 25, 1906. The crime was committed at the Madison Square roof garden, where a new musical play was being performed. Thaw was indicted for murder and pleaded not guilty. The trial began Jan. 23, 1907, Judge James Fitzgerald presiding. The defendant was represented by Delphin M. Delmas and other lawyers and the state by District Attorney William T. Jerome. The Jurywas completed Feb. 1 and Feb. 4 all the evidence for the prosecution was in. The time from Feb. 5 to March 20 was occupied with taking the testimony of witnesses for the defense and of those called by the state in rebuttal. It was claimed

for the defendant that when he shot White he was temporarily insane and the feature of the trial was the testimony of his wife, Evelyn Nesbit Thaw, that it was the story of her ruin by White that caused Ids insanity.

March 20 Mr. Jerome moved for a commission in lunacy and March 27 a commission consisting of Peter B. Olney, David McClure and Dr. Leopold Putzel was appointed. These men found Thaw sane and the trial proceeded. The case was given to the jury April 10. After deliberating forty-seven hours and eight minutes the jury reported that agreement was impossible, seven standing for conviction for murder in the first degree and five for acquittal on the ground of insanity.

The cost to the state of the mistrial was $76,000 That to the defense was estimated at $225,000.
