prowidotli that the State engineer may from time to time take over as as part of the State system sorb highwaya as are of iinportance to the State It did not provide any funds for this purpose "In 1917 in order to secure Federal funds it was necessary that this State pledge a permanent fund for the upkeep of all Federal aid yogik and for this purpose the auto reeeipts Were sreepted as satisfactory to the Federal authorities Whatever funds were in earess of the amount required were to be used for tho niaintenanco of a system of State roads "This system will take in about npo lk miles of road and the seleetion ofithese roads rests with the loeal and State 11 authorities It will conneet practically y every county seat and ull large cities and townie Thus far this work has been muerte(' in 83 counties and is satisfac- tory to most of the countiee where 0 any kind of public spied exists s "One of the first things done wee to 1 establimh eotinty line algae and also mile I

up to date for the traveling public "The State has been divided into districts independent of pelitienl lines and county and township lines ignored on maintenaen except in divisions of the founds ae

adjoining and poor counties If the fonds are retained in a county or township then the auto should not run over the line either "We lose hundreds of dollars bemuse the automobile lows are not enforced

for equipment that now stand out all winter or we must rent all winter "The opposition comes largely from parties who have controlled the road funds and not from those who have the entire State at large in mind "Unless men take a broad view and pull together we will lose the roads The war is teaching us this leeson Loyalty to te State is what we need to learn rather than counties and township

numbered 2610 compared with 732 the previous week and the missing and prisoners 734 compared with 74 the week before While the proportion of the deaths for the week as compared with the wounded was large attention was called today to the fact that the casualties being reported now by General Pershing reprement an accumulation as the result of the lighting which began July 15 and it is not to be assumed that the ratio of killed and wounded will be maintained when the final toll of the Marne-Aisne victory is complete Because of the fact that the Americans were brigaded in tho fighting with British and French forces many of the wounded were taken to French and British hospitals and the task of collecting their names was a difficult one The problem of securing the names of the killed and missing was said to be much simpler and this is taken here to account for the relatively large numbers of killed and missing reported till the first lists The summary of army casualties including today's list follows: Killed in action (including 291 at sea) 3574 Died of wounds 1105 Died of disease 10134 Died of accident and other causes 670 Wounded in action 9048 Missing in action (including
