CHURCH GROWTH EXCEEDS IN
CREASE IN POPULATION.
"Washington, May 30. Church
growth in .the United States has been
greater than the increase in popula
tion between the years 1900 and 1906,
according to the special census report
on the census of religious bodies for
1900, now in press. In the principal
cities of the countr the growth both
in the number of religions organiza
tions and communities was greater in
the years mentioned, than the increase
in population, while in the area out
side the principal cities the rate of
increase in the number of new
churches was approximately the same
as the rate of population increase, al
though in the number of communi
cants the increase in the outside area,
as in the .cities, was in excess of
that in population.
Out of every 1,000 people in the
1G0 principal cities of the country
that is, those which had a population
of more than 25,000 there were 469
church members, while for the area
outside these cities there were 363;
and for the entire country there were
391. As compared with 1890, the re
port shows a gain of 90 communi
cants in each 1,000 of population for
the principal cities and a gain of 51
outside of them.
Female members in 1906 outnum
bered the male members by 32 pet
cent in continental United States,
while in the principal cities the ex
cess of female members was propor
tionately less, being 960,526, or 23.5

Importance of Good Roads.
We have received a copy of the re

'.he most superb system of roads in
the world, completed at a total cost
)f $612,775,000. The effect of these
roads upon the material prosperity of
;he French people is indicated In the
following extract from a report by
Francis R. Loomis, commercial agent
it St. Etienne, France, dated April
"The road system of France has
been of far greater value to the coun
ty as a means of raising the value of
lands and of putting the small peas
ant proprietors in easy communica
tion wifrh their markets than have the
railways. It is the opinion of well
informed Frenchmen who have made
a practical s.udy of economic prob
lems that the superb roads of France
have been one of the most steady and
potent contributions to the material
ievelopment and marvelous financial
elasticity of the country. The far
reaching and splendidly maintained
road system has distinctly favored
the success of the small landed pro
prietors, and in their prosperity and
In the ensuing distribution of wealth

)f the French nation."
As a result of the improved con
3ition of the roads in these coun
tries, their farmers haul produce to
! market at an average cost of only
ten cents per ton per mile, and in
Borne cases it is as low as seven
cents; while, as a result of the bad
conditions of American roads, our
farmers are forced to pay an average
expense of twenty-three cents per
ton per mile on every ton of produce
hauled to market or shipping point.
Improving the Roads.
Of New York State's 8 0,000 miles
of, public highways, running through
her 30,476,800 acres, 3000 are State
roads, maintained by the State. The
remainder are under the care of coun
ty or town. On January 1, 1909,
when the new State Highway Com
mission was created, there were prac
tically 2000 miles of highway macad
amized; now 2400milesare improved.
This year the commission hopes to in
crease the miles improved by perhaps
500, and to increase each year until
the total per year will amount to S00
or 1000 miles.
Thus far this year 120 contracts
for improved roads have heen let by
the commission, and more contracts
will be awarded. This will be the last
until fall or winter, enabling the suc
cessful bidders to get ready for work
early next spring.
Under the law some work must be
done in all counties whose roads are
to be improved at the same time. The
120 contracts awarded this year call
for the building of 430 miles of high
way, at a total cost of $5,600,000. Of
this total the State will pay about
$4,500,000 and the counties and
towns the remainder.
Of the work contracted Tor 153
miles are State trunk lines and about
272 miles county roads. The State
pays the entire cost of the trunk
lines, while the State, county and
towns share the cost of the county
roads. The contracts to be awarded
will amount to about $500,000,
bringing the total outlay for the sea
son to more than $6,000,000.
The trunk lines will traverse the
State from east to west and from
south to north. One trunk line will
run from New York City to Platts
burg, on Lake Champlain. From
Plattsburg the trunk line will pro
ceed westerly through Ogdensburg,
Watertown and Oswego to Syracuse,
where it will join the main artery, ex
ttnding through the centre of the
State from Albany to Buffalo. This
central artery will pass through Am
sterdam, Utica, Syracuse and Roches
ter. A third east and west trunk line
will run through the southern tier of
counties, and will pass through tfce
cities of Binghamton, Elmira, Corn
ing, Olean and Jamestown. There
will be several trunksextending north
and south, which will connect the
trunks along the southern tier with
that from Albany to Bu3alo. New
