GRADING LAWNS AND FIELDS

Where irrigation is practised it is
necessary to bring (he surface to a
uniform grade. The appearance of
lawns is also improved by grading.
For simply smoothing uneven places
the plank smoother is very useful,

Having found the culprit, the next |
thing lor tho scientists to do will ho
to discover his "natural enemy" and ;
proceed to eliminate him from the cosmic
scheme. The discovery seems to
have come none too soon, since, according
to estimates made by reliable
experts, the soil of the I'nited States
has been robbed of $1.OOO.OOO.OOU worth
of fertility in the last 30 years. The
Loss in farm values has varied in the
different, states from $ 1,000,000 to
$100,000,000, according to the figures"
s given out by the census bureau. The
question of "soil robbery" is not one
for future generations to solve, but for
those of the present day. Rich as is

ity malting bacteria liy natural process I
is rather slow, so man decided to help
nature along. These bacteria have the
faculty ot extracting the nitrogen from
the air and introducing it into the
earth A process has been invented
by which the nitrogen is artificially < \
i trailed from the air, formed into a
! powder, and the powder used to fertilize
the soil. This eliminates a long
i process of natural fertilization. However,
if some one can ilnd a way to
i prevent the fertility from being eaten

SPLIT-LOG D1A6 FOR ROADS
Costs \'cry and Make Gcod,
Ssrv-ceable Highways?It Is the
Poor M; n's Friend.
"We have irore than once pointed
out," says Southern Good Roads, "that
where a bond issue or a heavy road
tax is impossible owing to the
strength of tho opposition or to poverty,
there can be nevertheless perfectly
Rood earth roads built at very
small expense. The chief thing is cooperat
ion among the people of tlie I
community. There is no excuse for
a bad road in any village or farming
section?none whatever. For the
split-log drag is tho poor man's friend,
and with it any people, however poor,
however far from the day of macadam,
can make and enjoy good roads.
"Let us take, for example, a stretch
of bad road in the country. Say it is
ten miles in length and that ten
farmers live at Intervals along its
course. It is very bad in summer and
next to impassable in winter. Those
ten farmers decide that they are not
going to put up with hole** and ruts
and washouts any longer, and they
come together. Thev airree that thev
will divide the road into ten sections
of one mile each, and every farmer Is
to take charge of a mile. They select
one of their number to act as foreman
of all. They fall to work and
build split-log drags. These cost practically
nothing. The office of public
roads, United States department of agriculture,
will gladly furnish information
as to the construction, and If possible
will doubtless send an expert tc
give preliminary instructions.
"When the farmers hnv? everything
ready, the foreman calls them out !
after iach rain to drag their several j
sections. This is repeated until with
in an amazingly short time that miser |
aoio oiu road Has been transformed
into a splendid highway, smooth, well
drained, well-shaped, a thing of beauty
and a joy forever, without the expenditure
of enough money for the farmers'
to miss it. They receive incalcula
ble benefit from the road, and it
serves as an object lesson to the rest
of their county, causing others to go
and do likewise, until in the course
of no great time the road situation
in the county has been revolutionized
Mid the way paved for the day when
permanent stone roads will be built.
"Why not try it in your community?"
