CAPE COQ TOWN SOLVES THE G000
tVtll nrrsil f7S.i;no oi Stone Road
la a Term of Three Years Debt to
Ue raid In 3even Annual Payments
A inntUr of vital Importance to the
residents of fojie Cod and one which ia
tu present ht.ldini; the attention of the
taxpayers in ninny towns is good roads.
Tie re is perhaps no section of the state
where the natural conditions for the
ciitruetion of roads are as poor as on
the cripe, snys the Boston Globe. For
years experiments have been conducted
ulnni; one line or another looking to
ward the builuii.K of roads and their
maintenance, Lilt little success was ob
tained until the slate came to the res
cue and lo.'aii the construction of the
state highway, so called.
The method of roadhuilding as ein
ployej hy those who began the con
struction of the state highway on the
cape was vastly different from that
ever before tried in this region, nnd the
work was viewed with the keenest In
terest hy the old roadliuilders and high
way surveyors. While the coutribu
tions received from the state each year
helped materially to put the roads on
the cape In excellent condition, the
process was necessarily slow, and yean
would have to elapse before such roads
Most of the towns on the cape did not
feel that they were able to eipeud the
vast sums that would be required to
build stone roads, and they continued
to appropriate the usual amount each
year as In times past, which burely
kept the old roads in condition. By
the old method of making appropria
tions fur roads as employed by the
towns mi the cape little or no progress
was made in the construction of new
roads, and matters were uot getting
any better, while the demands for good
romls were Increasing each year.
To build stone roads required the out
lay of huge sums of money, which
must of the towns felt they could not
afford without Increasing the tax rate
to such a figure that It would deter per
sons who might wish to take up a res
idence on the cape from coming hither.
Tho residents of the cape agreed that
to promote a healthy financial growth
of their respective towns good roads
must be built
Prosperity follows good roads, and
the improved financial conditions In all
towns where good roads prevail can be
traced directly to excellent roads. The
residents of the cape likewise agreed
that the time had come for a radical
change In the method of roadbulldlng
and their maintenance, and plans for
the construction of stone roads and for
the payment of the debt which would
be Incurred thereby were discussed
from one end of the cape to the other.
While the various towns were delib
erating over the methods they would
employ to build stone roads and were
formulating plans for the payment of
the debt that would thereby be In
curred Captain Thomas Patterson of
Barnstable, who for years had been
making a study of stone roads, their
construction, etc., presented a plan to
his town which solved the problem, for
that town nt least, nnd seems likely to
be adopted by other towns on the cape.
In submitting his plan Captain Pat
terson, to use his own words, said,
"The thought that was uppermost In
my mind was thnt of not raising the
tax rate and also that the burden of
llipildating the debt should be shared
by those who will enjoy and be mate
rially benefited by the adoption of tho
modern and progressive policy."
The plan presented by Captain Pat
tci'snii and which the town adopted was
that of expending $T."..ihkj on stone
roads in a term of three years and the
Bei.t Id be paid In seven anoual pay
ment of $7,500, the liquidation begin
ning In 1904 and ending In 1910. Of
the total amount to be expended on
tone roads $30,000 would be spent the
first year, $22,500 the second and a lute
amount the third year. The sum raised
by taxation each year would be $13,000.
The plan which Captain Patterson
gave to Barnstable was pnt In opera
tion last year and has worked to the
perfect satisfaction of all. Stone roads
are fast replacing the old and travel
worn sandy ones In the town, and ere
long the whole town will be covered
with a network of roads the equal of
which it will be difficult to find in the
With the state each year building
sections of the main highway along the
cape and the adoption of Captain Pat
terson's plan, which seems probable,
by the other towns the whole of Cape
Cod would within a few years be able
to boast of excellent roads and set an
example which it will behoove other
towns to follow.
AirastssM mi Good Rond.
Good, permanent roads, made so aa
to be passable for a full wagon load
every day In the year, would bring to
the farm that was not more than ten
or twelve miles from the market towa
ill the advantages the town offers to
Its own Inhabitants. This class of roads
built, the drive to town with the excel
lent roadsters now common on nearly
svery farm In the fairly well settled
portions of the land need not at the
nitslde require more than an honr'a
time to make It
Doner Vain of Good Road.
The difference between good and bad
roads Is equivalent to the difference
between profit and loss. Good roads
nave a money value to farmers as well
as a political and social value, and,
leaving out convenience, comfort, so
cial and refined Influences which good
roads always enhance and looking at
them only from the almighty dollar
aide, they are found to pay handsome
dividends each year.
DISPOSAL OF GARBAGE.
d Coat of Bnrnlna- It I
While the accumulation of refuse In
the smaller towns has not so great a
bearing on public health as In the
larger towns and cities neatness and
cleanliness are always desirable, and
many diseases are directly traced to
carelessness In this matter. Typhoid
fever Is considered by scientists as a
filth disease. Ignorance and stupidity
are often responsible for outbreaks of
disease In localities that with trifling
care In the disposition of sink drains
and garbage would never have oc
curred. Kitchen refuse thrown In a
heap In the back yard, there to fester
and rot. Is always a dangerous neigh
bor. What cannot be burned should

making a ton n beautiful, but they will
make use of only the most artistic
furnishings In hydrants, mail boxes,
refuse receptacles, the lighting appa
