Kilk ACTUAL COST OF GOOD ROAD Varlou Methods of Financing Road .Building and Retiring Debts Dis- cussed by Expert on Subject. While it is frequently easy for a county to issue bonds and borrow money for improving the local high- ways, the raising of the money to re- tire those bonds at maturity is often not so simple. Many counties, in bor- rowing money for bonds, figure that the amount of money raised repre- sents the total cost of the road, for~ getting that the road must be main- tained and repaired if, at the end of the term of the bonds, the county is to have anything to show' for its invest- ment. The question of financing county road building is discussed fully in De- partment of Agriculture Bulletin No. 136, entitled "Highway Bonds," which is written by the office of public roads in collaboration with James W. Glover, professor of mathematics and insur- ance, University of Michigan. In this bulletin the authors discuss fully the various methods of financing road building and retiring debts for road construction, and also deal frankly with the actual total cost of a road during the life of the bonds. On the total cost of a road, the authors cite the following two examples as afford- ing at least a basis for estimating the total minimum cost of a mile of road: Bituminous macadam: Cost of con- struetton ($10,500) under 5 per cent serial bond with interest for 20 years, $16,012.50. Cost of annual repair and maintenance ($600) for 20 years, $12,- 000. Total cost for 20 years, $28,012~50. Brick: Cost of construction ($18,500) under 5 per cent serial bond with in. terest for 20 years, $26.426.73. Cost of annual repair and maintenance ($300) for 20 years, $6,000. Total cost for 20 years, $32,426.73. The authors point out that the ac- tual cost of building and maintaining h my a specific highway can be determined V feet ,ur L~ only after the character and volume lm t~cn ten of traffic and actual wear and tear asy.

DON'T STAY BILIOUS, CONaTIPATED I Guarantee "Dodson's Liver Tone" Will Give You the Best Liver and Bowel Cleansing You Ever Had--Don't Lose a Day's Workl Calomel makes you sick; you lose a day's work. Calomel is quicksilver and it salivates; calomel injures your liver. If you are bilious, feel lazy, sluggish and all knocked out, if your bowels are constipated and your head aches or stomach is sour, just take a spoon- ful of harmless Dodson's Liver Tone instead of using sickening, salivating Calomel. Dodson's Liver Tone is real liver medicine. You'll know it next morning because you will wake up feeling fine, your liver will be work- ing, your headache and dizziness gone, your stomach will be sweet and your bowels regular. You will feel like working. You'll be cheerful; full of vigor and ambition. Your drugl~ist or dealer sells you a 50-cent bottle of Dodson's Liver Tone under my personal guarantee that it will clean your sluggish liver better than nasty calomel; it won't make you sick and you can eat anything you want without being salivated. Your druggist guarantees that each spoonful will start your liver, clean your bowels and straighten you up by morning or you can have your money back. Chil- dren gladly take Dodson's Liver Tone because it is pleasant tastlng and doesn't gripe or cramp or make them sick. I am selling millions of bottles of Dodson's Liver Tone to people who have found that this pleasant, vege- table, liver medicine takes the place of dangerous calomel. Buy one bottle on my sound, reliable guarantee. Ask your druggist or storekeeper about me. Adaptability. "Why don't you knit something for the war sufferers?" "I am knitting something," replied young Mrs. Torkins. "What is it." "Well. I thought they were going to be mittens, but I forgot to put the thumbs in, so I'll have to make them a pair of socks." KIDNEYS CLOG UP FROM EATING TOO MUCH MEAT Take Tablespoonful of Salts If Back Hurts or Bladder Bothers---Meat Forms Uric Acid. We are a nation of meat eaters and our blood is filled with uric acid, says a well-known authority, who warns us to be constantly on guard against kid- ney trouble. The kidneys do their utmost to free the blood of this irritating acid, but become weak from the overwork; they get sluggish; the eliminative tis- sues clog and thus the waste is re- talned in the blood to poison the en- tire system. When your kidneys ache and feel llke lumps of lead, and you have sting- ing pains in the back or the urine is cloudy, full of sediment, or the blad- der is irritable, obliging you to seek relief during the night; when you have severe headaches, nervous and dizzy spells, sleeplessness, acid stomach or rheumatism in bad weather, get from your pharmacist about four ounces of Jad Salts; take a tablespoonful In a glass of water before breakfast each morning and in a few days your kid- neys will act fine. This famous salts is made from the acid of grapes and lemon juice, combined with lithia, and has been used for generations to flush and stimulate clogged kidneys, to neu- tralize the acids in urine so it is no longer a source of irritation, thus end- ing urinary and bladder disorders. Jad Salts i inexpensive and cannot injure; makers a delightful efferves- cent lithla-water drink, and nobody can make a mistake by taking a little occasionally to keep the kidneys clean and active.--Adv.

The tim- ber, which was 16 feet 9 inches long, had formed part of one of the piers of the Congress street bridge at Troy. When the pler broke down after the flood in the spring of 1913. the timber was turned over to one of the mate- rial-testlng laboratories of the Insti- Th~ Shot That Missed.

Sim- ilarly, the question of whether the actual surfacing is designed to with. stand the character of traffic and weather to which it is subjected also has an important bearing on what it will cost the county to keep the road in such shape that when the bonds are paid the locality still will have a valu- able property to show as a result of Its borrowing and repayment.
