DRAGGING ROADS IN SPRING
%f Taking .Advantage of Proper Mo
ment Many of Ruts and Bumps
Can Be Smoothed Out,
Most earth and gravel roads are In
bad shipe during the entire winter,
largely because of the heavy fall haul
tog of harvested crops, and the rush
of necessary farm work, which takes
precedence over any kind of read
work. The cold weather strikes them
in this condition and makes each rut
and bump almost as solid as rock, and
In the spring these break down into

painful, operation. The rough jolts re

equipment, and frequently force the au
tomobile owner to abandon the use of
hi car for the entire spring rather
than risk a breakdown.
Most of the unpleasantness and dif
ficulty may be remedied in many local
ities even in the worst weather, tot
there are times when the worst ctfi
up surface is in fairly good condition
for dragging. By taking advantage of
the proper moment the ruts and bumps
-can be smoothed out and the' next
freeze will result in a smooth hard
surfaced pike that can be favorably
compared to a concrete highway.
Owing to the fact that the road sur
face will be rather wet and sticky
when dragged, greater care must be
exercised in handling the drag. If the
blades of the drag are set vertically,
there will be a tendency to scrape up
too much earth, or, in the language
the road man, "Ball up in front."
o, if the hitch.to the team is set too
near the center, "the angle of the drag
with the road will be too nearly a
right angle, or straight across, to shed
or crown the wet earth.
Dragging under these conditions
should be more an "Ironing out the
wrinkles" process hence the blades of
the drag should be given a forward
or flatter inclination than when work
ing a dry road. The hitch should be
so arranged that the angle of the drag
is more nearly parallel to the road
than ordinary, thus causing the earth
to shed better and prevent trouble. For
extremely bad conditions, the use of
the road machine ahead of the drag
will be found effective. In all cases,
toe road should be freed of all stumps,
snags, and bowlders, as these seriously
retard good dragging.
A little practice will enable the op
erator to do a fairly creditable job,
and after a subsequent freeze the road
wit present a smoother and much more
"ifi** comfortable surface. Then, when the

Healthy Men Defied "Flu."
An observant hospital corps man of
the navy became so thoroughly con
vinced that lowered resistance was
always the determining factor in/con
tracting influenza that he and some
f his mates volunteered to test the
truth of his theory. The offer was ac
cented and 100 enlisted men who vol
unteered were submitted to exhaus
tive experiments by naval surgeons,
the outcome of which seems to con
firm the theory. These men were all
in the best of physical condition, and
during the experiment their health was
looked after carefully. Live cultures
of influenza bacilli were sprayed in
their throats and noses hourly. The
germs were introduced Into their food.
They were fcppt in close contact with
patients suffering from the disease.
Some members of the group received
various preventive inoculations, but
others were not thus protected Not

THE BEMIDJI DAILY PIONEER
There are few cvclists who, when
compelled to execute repairs to inner
tubes by the roadside, have not longed
for unpuncturable tires. This desid
eratum now seems to have become an
accomplished fact in Sweden, where
the shortage of rubber has caused
treat efforts to be made to find a sat
isfactory substitute for the pneumatic
tire. The new device consists of a
thin strip of hardened steel supported
on the rim by springs, the combination
being said to give results comparable
with those obtained by the use of rub
ber. Skidding Is prevented by the
sharp edge of the steel tread, while
such tires are, of course, quite un
puncturable. Whether the new device
will survive when rubber again be
comes plentiful Is perhaps doubtful,
but as a war-time measure it has
picned very useful,From Chambers'
