Gentlemen: As one of your ceunty officers, I Jiave been in the habit of making an annual report, to show you what I hare been doing, and to show you especially as to the condition of the public schools. The law requires the Health Officer of each county to visit the school each year to look after their sanitary condition, the condition of the school houses, and the children, to look after the health of the teachers, and the children, and especially as to the ventilation and water supply to see that no epidemic disease is lurking around, and aiming to seize on the unsuspecting children. The schools this year have been singularly fortunate in freedom from epidemic disease. Not a school has been suspended on account of measles or mumps, or scarlet Thursday evening a most enjoyable Last Thursday forenoon at 10 o'clock, Selected.

The county may raise the money to meet the funds available from the State by two methods, viz: by general taxation, and by bond issues. In dither case the county's funds and the state's funds or both may be supplemented by donations from corporations or private citizens, provided such donations are paid in cash to the treasurer of the county or state. Since the state is to aid in the building of these roads and since the counties' funds in most instances are very limited for construction or reconstruction it is only just and fair that those living along the line of a vcA to be improved and who receive the direct and greatest benefit accruing from said improvement shall aid in bearing the expense of each improvement in proportion to the benefits derived therefrom. And since the state is to pay one-hathe cost, the ratio should be state 50 per cent, county 25 per cent, and abutting property owners and the private subscriptions, the other 25 per cent Most certainly the abutting property owners and private subscriptions should amount to not less than 15 per cent. In the latter event the county would have to pay 35 per cent of the cost. The couny in no instance should be required to nay for right ot way. Pulaski and Rockcastle counties and seve'ral others have requssted state aid for the improvement of certain seat roads, stating to the abutting property owners that the county will put up $5,000, provided said property owners and other citizens of the county will put up another 5,000, and have requested that the work be done under plans and specifications of the State Department of Public Roads and in accordance with the State Aid Road Law. This would in general insure $20,000 worth of road worK for the county. However, this depends on the number of applications for state aid and the amounts requested. Few cou ities are so fortunate as Jefferson, Shelby, Campbell and Kenton as to be able to ask for all the state aid fund that they will be entitled to receive, and to be able to appropriate the necessary money from their road fund to meet state aid, without impairing or totally destroying their general maintenance fund. In no instance should the maintenance be overlooked. The roads to receive state aid are the seat roads, and after such roads have been improved, then such other roads as may be designated may be improved, but to build a comprehensive system such as is outlined by this law will require ten years with national aid and without it fifteen or twenty years. A county wishing to secure the completion of this comprehensivo-syste- m at an early date can do so only by assuming the cost of such a system through the issuance of bonds. 'Usually the county's road fund and therefore the state'3 portion to the county is so small that only a few miles can be built in one year, but by means of a bond issue a, system may be completed at less expense because a larger amount of work may be accomplished in a comparatively short time and the roads may be used while they are being paid for by the citizens of the county and commonwealth. The state will reimburse the county for such work done in accordance to the state aid law, to the extent of f the amount of money actually spent on construction or reconstruction of roads, payment being made annually as the county's portion of the road fund is available. Two counties have thus far availed themselves of this means of securing good roads, viz: Lewis aud Carter. The voters of Lewis county approving the bond issue for $150,000 on the 11th day of July by a Vote of 2,100 yeas to 140 nays. The voters of Carter county, on November 3d, ratified a bond issue for $150,000 for the improvement of their roads by 307 more votes than the necess sary majority required to carry the issue. In every other instance where a vote has been taken for a bond issue, a majority of the votes cast have been in favor of said issue, thus showing conclusively that a majority of the thinking people favor the improvement of their methods. roads by rapid and These statements are corroborated by the result shown from such elections held in the following counties: Mason, November 3rd, $200,000; Campbell, November 3rd. $150,000 to build roads, $100,000 to buy toll roads; Kenton. November 3, $200,000; Boone, November 3, $75,000;- Pulaski, Ar-- il 24, and again on June 26th, $300,006; Warren, May 19th, $300,000; Simpson. Mav 2. $100,000, and Menifee, September, $35,000.

Every county in the Commonwealth should follow the example of Lewis Lawrence, Carter, Johnson. Madison, Boyd, Rockcastle, Shelby, Warren, Jefferson, Harrison and Logan counties by applying for state aid. No county is too rich as has been shown by" Jefferson county's application and no county is so poor that she can not apply for and receive a portion of the fund on one of the three plans mentioned above. No county can afford to lose the money she is paying toward the state road fund or fail to accept the generous offer rnaue by the state. lf inter-county iter-count- Ques.

After having been frustrated twice in an attempt to build on the top of a wardrobe in different rooms, it finally selected a shelf in a wall bookcase in the dining room, half-fille- d with ornaments. Behind these it piled up a large nest, made entirely of withered leaves, dry green moss, and a little hay. The nest was completed in less than three days. Then the robin disappeared for a week, but it did not desert its home, and within a fortnight five eggs were laid and duly hatched, the parent birds sharing the labors of incubation and feeding I will drill wells in Adair and adjoining counties. fore contracting.
