was valuea in the first place chiefly as

HEAVY, SHORT ROAD ROLLER
Useful Improvement May Be Con

Perhaps you have a grader of some
sort and road drags, but you Leed a
heavy short. roller. They cost too
much ' buy, so make one t's way.
Procur' an old worn-out mowing ma
chine, any make, writes W. A. Dillon
in Farmers' Mail and Breeze. Take
off or break off all the parts that stick
out past the wheels. Smooth off a
bit of bard ground; now do a small
sole just large enough for the hub.
Set the machine up on one end, put
a jacket of galvanized sheet iron
around the wheels, secure it at short
intervals with small stove. bolts and
make it fit neat and straight. Now
fil the jacket with the best fine con
crete. Tamp it well and allow it to.
stand until the concrete is well set.
Remove the jacket; keep the roller
shaded and spray it for eight or ten
Havo the blacksmith put an iron
frame on this roller. Heavy tire iron
will do, using the hubs for spindles.
When a strong tongue is added you
wil have as good a roller as anybody;
one that will last a life time and will
cost but, little. Save the jacket to
make more rollers with.
When. your road is graded run the
roller down the center, instead of on
the sides, as now. Take two disk
harrows the same number of disks
and If possible the same kind. Turn
the disk on the harrows so they will
throw the dirt toward each other when
placed side by side. Now set them
close together side by side in the mid
die of the road to be worked. Take
a light log chain and fasten the har
rows together. Put a team on each
harrow and drive down the road' to
be worked. Turn around; let out the
chain a couple of feet; go back. Re
peat the operation a number of times.
You would be surprised how much
dirt the disk harrow will cut up.
and how much itwill move toward
the center. Finish with drag or grader.
Then roll the center and yotr will have
a good road at small cost.
We have organized a country club
here and given each member a piece
of road to drag, near his home. We
elected a drag boss so when it is just
light to drag the boss calls all the
members and In about two hours we
have al the roads in the district

weather ever since organizing, but the
plan appears to work well.
