GOVERNMENT OBJECT LESSON ROADS.

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.

AMERICAN TRADE IN FOREIGN CAGE BIRDS.

In the course of the year ended June 30, 1906. 322.297 foreign cage birds were imported into the United States under permit of the department of agriculture. Of these 274.914 were canaries and the remainder parrots, bullfinches, goldfinches, linnets. Java sparrows, Japanese robins, African

weavers, South American gray cardinals and other miscellaneous birds. Nearly all of the canaries came from Germany. About 100 English nightingales are imported annually, but few survive and fewer sing after coming here.
