Front New Law.
The state treasury of Connecticut
has made the first payment to the va
rious town« which have availed them
selves of the road improvement law
passed by the last legislature.
The essential features of that stutute
are the imymeut by the state of three-
quarters of the cost of Improved roads
In towns with a tax list of $1,000.000
or less aud two-thirds of the cost In
towns with a tax list of more than
$1,000.000. the state not to speud more
than $115,000 In one year nor more
than $4.500 In any one town annually,
the sum of $0.000 a year for state In
spection to come out of the $175,000,
und a proviso by which a town may,
with the assent of the state highway
i om miss I oner, use the full amount of
the appropriation for two years.
The returns at the highway commis
sioner's oliice show a rem arkable suc
cess of the new law. Out of 108 towns
in tlie state 115 have tills year made
applications. Out of the $350,000 ap
propriated by the state for two years,
or $338,000. excluding inspection ex
penses, al! but $30,000 is exhausted by
the applications of the 115 towns,
which will receive from $500 to $4.500
each from the state. The lnw only re
lates to main roads between towns,
aud of these it is estimated a t the com-

missioncr’s office that on 500 miles Im
provements have now been complet
ed since state aid began and on sev
eral hundred miles more Improvements
are In progress or immediately project
ed. During tills year aud next, includ
ing payments by the towus, the outlay
under the law’, present and prospective,
a mounts to about $433,000. in 53 of
the 115 towns gravel roads have been
made or regradiug has been done or is
In progress, in some cases preliminary
to hardened roads.
Under the various laws passed a t re
cent sessions of the state legislature
| there 1ms been an outlay of about
$800,000. and 138 towus out of 1G8 In
the state have availed themselves of
the various state aid laws. A very en
couraging feature of this year’s statute
Is the large number of small country
towns which have begun highway Im
provement. nnd the sum of $30.000 of
the state appropriation still left will
be given, first, to the towns not yet ap
plying nnd, secondly, to tlie towus
which have not asked for more than
$500. The secondary effects of the law
in improving roads nnd awakening
communities in the state to the Impor
tance of better highways have been
very great, not a few towns spending
much larger sums than usual butslde
of the law and one town spending $30,-
000. In regrading roads also much
money has been spent effectively and a
bad evil In the old Connecticut high
ways considerably abated.
There Is complaint that some of the

the statute -emnlns to be tested. In
such cases the law provides that the
state can make the repairs nnd the
town must pay for them. The eager

law for state aid Is indicated by the
fact that of the 115 towns applying nil

In constructing a gravel road the

proper grade. Ordinarily an excava

the re«|ulrements of traffic.

need not lie greater than 10 or 12 feet.
A roadway which Is too wide la not
only uselesR, but the extra width Is a
positive damage. Any width beyond
that needed for the traffic Is not ouly
a waste of money In constructing the
road, but Is the cause of a never end

surface o f the roadbed should prefer
ably have a fall from the center to the
sides the same as that to be given the
finished road, and should. If possible,
be thoroughly rolled and consolidated
until perfectly smooth aud firm.
A layer, uot thicker thau four inches,
of good gravel should then be spread
evenly over the prepared roadbed.
Such material is usually carried upon
a road In wheelbarrows or dump carts,
and then spread iu even layers with
rakes, but the latest and best device
for this purpose Is a spreading cart.
If a roller cannot be had, the road I b

Nearly $700,000 is being practically

NEW SHEEP DISEASE.

The Melbourne correspondent of The
British Medical Journal says: “T he
very careful Inspection of carcasses
which Is conducted by government offi
cials at the abattoirs has recently dis
closed an affection iu sheep with which
we were not hitherto fam iliar. The
disease, It appears, is of bacterial ori
gin nnd associated with certain tracts
Bf country nnd seems to be making con
fiderà hie headway In Australia. The
contagium is derived from the soil nnd
can only invade the animal when tlie
skin is injured. So fa r the disease has
not received much attention. Preisz
describes ’t under the name of pseudo-
tuberculosis. The disease Is chnracter-
Ised by swellings, which vary much In
rJze and which occur In the lymphatic
glands. No other organs ore attacked,
nnd the tumors vary In size from that
of a plum to that of an orange. On
section nt nn early stage the nodules
disclose a more or less tough fibrous
capsule, Inclosing a greater or less
amount of thick viscous material. At
a later stage the contents are firmer
nml more friable. The contents possess
usually a distinct green color or shades
of green, which is. however, not due to
pyoeyamlne. The microbe that causes
tills disease develops with a white col
or In agar nml a light yellow In blood
serum. The tumors sometimes calcify,
and the superficial swellings may burst
and discharge their contents, leaving
qpars, or cavities may be left with case
ous linings. No class of sheep Is ex
empt from tills disease, which prevails
mostly In lands of n marshy character.
The micro organisms enter the lym
phatic vessels through breaches In the
continuity of the skin. By culture ami
Inoculation methods It Is shown that
the disease is caused by a short oval
non motile bacillus.
