'EXPENSE OF GRAVELING ROAD
[Problem of Graveling Highways at
Moderate Cost Solved by Commis
sioner Rheinhardt of Idaho.
! Evidently Otto Rheinhardt, comm?s
?sioner of the Nampa highway district,
(Canyon county, Idaho, has solved the
?problem of graveling the highways at
j moderate cost, writes E. F. Stephens
jin Denver Field and Farm. Three
?years ago he decided to gravel the dis
trict's share of the boulevard between
! Nampa and Caldwell. A half mile
[away, Indian creek runs parallel with
:this boulevard and there an abundant
?supply of gravel was procured. Fortu
nately the very heavy traffic incident
'to hauling rails and ties for the In
terurban electric line track cut through
the gravel, mixing the underlying soil
?with the superimposed gravel in suit
iable proportions for cementing a firm,
?smooth roadbed. A percentage of clay
.smooth or volcanic ash soil mixed with
?gravel makes a hard, smooth roadbed
?not likely to absorb the rainfall. The
?result on the boulevard has been to
?secure a very serviceable roadbed
!highly commended, by local and United
Under the inspiration of this suc
cessful roadbed a neighborhood lying

cided to gravel on the following plan:

[The Nampa highway district to provide
?gravel, usuaiiy donated by those who
ihave it, pay the shovelers and a man
?to help dump the loads and also spread

?drag. The freshly graveled roadbed
should be smoothed with a King drag
or other implement weekly for two
months or until settled and cemented
j with the underlying soil. Four inches
'of gravel in the middle of the roadbed
[with two inches on the sides most

jin such proportions as to shed rain
?and form a smooth, solid bed. Heavy

I A moderate percentage of clay soil

?pack and cement from the beginning.
;The clay gravel banks along the re
clamation ditches piled by the dredges
?supply ideal material for graveling our
? roads. This mixture of clay, sand
?and gi^vel packs from the very first
land does not need underlying soil cut
lin by heavy traffic. Coarse gravel,
free from clay or soil, will need an ad
1 mixture of soil from below to secure a
?hard, smooth roadbed. Orchard ave
inue has now heen graveled two years.
Its success from the start has been
. such as to attract the attention of oth
J er neighborhoods.
I STATE AID FOR GOOD ROADS
.'One Reason Why Food Prices Are
High Is Because of Cost of Haul
ing Over Bad Highways.
Nearly every one of the state legis
latures is considering demands for
?more help for road building, says St.
I Joseph News-Press. Ten years ago
?all the states together put up but
?$2,000,000 for road building, exclusive
;of local funds. In 1914 they spent
?$43,000,000. But as four-fifths of this
?was done by six eastern states and
?two Pacific coast states, the problem I
jis far from solved nationally. Many
j of our big problems always comeback
Ito the costof-living question.
Plant Nut Trees.
Some nut or fruit-bearing trees set
?out on country roads 50 feet apart,
.would add much of beauty and com
?'fort to the highway. It would be nec
essary, of course, to have well-round
ed roadways to drain off the water,
?for mud holes and poor roadbeds
would not dry out quite so fast as
where the sun shines on the road
bed all the time. The better road
beds would be well worth while.
Personal Benefit and Profit.
Go at road improvement with the
same determination you would to dig
ditches or build fences-with the full
realization that it ls for your own per
sonal benefit and profit; and not only
merely a "public duty."
Aid for Permanent Roads.
State and national aid for perma
nent roads is sure to come, but lt is
not likely to come to any community
that has, by their lack of interest in
good roads shown that they are un
worthy of lt.
SPRAY TO PROTECT ORCHARD
Two Most Important Fungicides for
Summer Spraying Are Bordeaux
Mixture and Lime-Sulphur.
(By W. H. CHANDLER.)
Spraying is done for the purpose of
preventing injury to the fruit, foliage
and wood of trees and other plants
caused by disease and insects.
Diseases of plants may be caused
by the growth in the tissues of bac
teria or fungi. Bacteria usually grow
beneath the surface and cannot be
combated by means of spraying. Some
fungi grow upon the surfacel sending
feeding organs down into the tissue
from which they secure nourishment
from the plant sap. These fungi are
reproduced by means of spores which
are carried in the air until they settle
upon leaf, fruit or wood, where they
germinate and grow, becoming the In

jurious fungous tissue. If the leaves
or fruit are covered v,Ith a substance
which is poisonous to the fungus the
spores will be killed at the time they
germinate. Substances that thus pre
vent the growth of germinating spores
are called fungicides. As a rule these
fungicides must be applied In summer
when the fruit or foliage is likely to
be infected. However in the case of a
very few diseases like peach leaf curl,
spraying in the early spring before
1 growth starts is successful.
The two most important fungicides
(sprays to prevent fungous diseases)
for summer spraying are Bordeaux
mixture and lime-sulphur.
We have two classes of insecticides
(sprays to kill insects). For insects
that eat from the surface of the plant
a poison on the leaves or fruit will
kill the insect. Usually the spray used
in this case is some compound contain
ing arsenic. The most important in
secticide is arsenate of lead.
There are also insecticides used to
kill insects that do not eat from the
surface, but penetrate the surface with
their beaks and suck the juices from
beneath. It is plain that such an in
sect could not eat any poison placed
upon the leaves, but must be destroyed
by a spray that kills by coming in con
tact with its body, so insecticides for
sucking insects are sometimes spoken
of as contact sprays. The most im
portant of these are probably lime
