Paul 0. Sargent Tells of the State
Highway Building.
Twenty-four Hundred Miles of Road
Already Laid Out Gravel Generally
Used For Surfacing How the Work
Is Done.
Taul D. Sargent, state highway com
missioner of Maine, In a recent ad
dress before the good roads and legis
lative convention of the Automobile
dub of Springfield, Muss., spoke as
follows about roud work In Maine:
The construction of state roads In
Maine j ?s"nts a little different prob
lem from that in any otner or me sew
England states. This Is partly on ac
count of our large area which Is sparse
ly settled and our low valuation. For
A thin deposit of travel, ueed in road
building, Is exposed in the ditch on the
example, our area Is within 300 square
miles of equaling that of all the other
New England states. Our population
Is about 50 per cent more than that of
the city of Boston and our valuation
about one-tenth that of Massachusetts.
In the matter of valuations I might
say that we have only sixty-three cities
and towns In the state which have a
valuation of $1,000,000. We have 222
towns with a valuation less than $250,
000 each, and three-fourths of all our
towns are less than $500,000 in valua
tiou. In many of our towns, especially
the smaller ones, highway taxes aloue
run from 1 to 3 cents, so you see when
these towns make appropriations for
good roads they are really struggling
to Improve their condition.
We have, however, made a start In
the matter of state road building and
are making progress every year. In
1001 a state road law was passed
which was geueral In its application
that Is, it provided that every town In
the state might have state aid in com
Diving with certain conditions. The
amount which any town could expend
under this original law was only $200
per year, and the maximum state aid
allowed on account of such exiendl
ture was $100. Succeeding legislatures
raised the amount until at present $000
is the maximum amount a town may
expend and be reimbursed by the state
for half its expenditure.
The first year of the law only twelve
towns took advantage of its provisions,
while last year, the sixth year of Its
operation, 322 towns built their state
kind of baking
I I H I I'.
roads and received state aid. Thla
year S56 towns are building sections
of state road.
Our law provides that when a town
makes appropriation and declares its
Intention to build state road the county
commissioners shall designate in that
town the main traveled thoroughfare.
which shall thereafter be known as the
state road, and that said appropriation
shall be expended in Improving some
section of this road. Under this pro
vision for designating state roads
about 2,400 miles of road have already
been laid out
rp to the close of last year about
$450,000 had been expended by the
towns and the state In this reconstruc
tion work, and nearly 300 miles of
road had been worked upon. The
work consists mainly in cutting down
excessive grades, raising roads in
swamps and low places, straightening
crooked roads, taking out sharp curves
and underdrainlng quagmires.
In general our surfacing material
consists of gravel, but In many cases
only the natural soil is used for this
purpose, especially if gravel cannot be
obtained within two miles of the loca
tion of the work. Probably in forty
towns In the state the surfacing mate
rial Is crushed stone.
The work up to the present time has
been under the direct supervision of
the various boards of county commis
sioners. As the luw provides for in
spection of the work after it is com
pleted and the commissioners have not
In general Insisted on one standard of
work, there have been quite a good
many variations In the completed
roads, but progress is being made each
year, and we are gradually approach
ing something in the line of uniform
ity. The standard which we ask to
have maintained is for a road twenty
one feet .wide which shall have at
least twelve feet of hardened track,
with earth shoulders to make up the
remaining width.
Our general specification is for sur
facing material to be eight inches thick
in the center and six Inches thick on
the shoulders, to be screened into sizes
and deposited in layers aid rolled
wherever po'ssible. We find that such
work where it is carefully and well
done averages in cost fiein 86 te BO
cents per lineal foot.

O'her remedy or treatment for

The best people attest its curative
virtues, savs C. H. Domaray, who is
the local agent. The fair way in
which Hvomel was sold, to refund
themoney unleats it gave satislaotion
was the best proofwnen it was in-
irodnced that ii possessed, onusua
oorative powers.
Demaray took all the risk of the
treatment giving satisfaction, and leit
it to the purchasers to be the judge.
Later, when Hyomei was need and
recommended by our well-known
physicians and business meu and tneir
wives as a treatment that absolutely
oured catarrh, no matter how serious
or long standing, the ales rapidly
grew aud today there is no other
remedy in .Demaray 's stock that has
such a large and staple sale.
