ROAD OF DIRT
Illinois Commission Builds One
Without Use of Stone.
CONSTRUCTION METHOD EASY
The Severe Wear Caused by Automo
biles Has Made It Necessary to Find
Something Stronger Than the Mac
adam Road Experiments With Mix
ture of Dirt and Oil Show Results.
Macadam ronds have been the world's
stnudnrd for mnny years, but under
conditions of modern trnlllc they have
bo quickly worn nwny that In the
country which boasted the enduring
military roads of Napoleon n con
gress of tho road engineers of tho
world was called to discuss means of
preventing them from going up In
smoke or dustl The Iron tire of Hie
horse drawn vehicle rolled and com
pacted tho limestone road. The pneu
matic tiro of tho motorcar sucks up
tho dust and draws It Into tho nlr to
blow away. It was (formerly compac
tion by trnfllc; now it Is suction.
This fact has been strikingly dem
onstrated by the work of the stnto
highway commission of Illinois. Ono
of the best miles of macadam road
ever constructed, and surface bound
with n gravel of peculiar cementing
quality, has been ripped up and blown
nway down to the large, sharp pointed
rocks that constitute the basic course.
Other experiments with oil and tar
have proved the binding and protect
ing properties of those substances.
Valuo of Oil.
The valuo of oil of heavy asphalt
base the residuum after refining out
the volatile oils as a binder for rock
roads led to experiments with It in tho
construction of dirt roads without the
use of stone. The idea was to com
pact and bind the dirt so that It would
Le waterproof and ns wearproof as
possible In other words, to bind the
particles of dirt together so that trac
tion would produce little dust. One
of the most striking experiments with
oiled black mud was made at Hement,
In I'lntt county, and herewith wo re
turn to our Illustrations. The Dement
section ranks among the richest in
central Illinois. It is rich because it
Is fairly bottomles. It was low lying
and swampy In the olden days before
the coming of the steam dredge and
the tile and Its roads were as Impass
ible as that typo of land affords.
It is usable nil tho year round for
maximum loads, It Is practically dust
less, it requires no dragging or scrap
ing, and it lias n resiliency that saves
liorse and vehicle and adds much to
. the comfort of the occupants of wagon
I or carriage. After more than a year's
I test, the experiment must be pronounc
ed a great success, and the best men
about Itcmcnt, who have made a study
of roads for many years, regard it ns
the solution of tho problem of build
ing mudless roads In the black prairie
The method of construction was sim
ple. The road was plowed six Inches
deep and tho dirt scrnped to each side.
In the bed thus made a layer of oil
was sprinkled, the oil in tills experi
ment being what Is usually called SO
to S3 per cent asphalt oil. After tho
oil was applied two inches of dirt were
si raped back Into the roadway and oil
and soil were thoroughly disked to
gether. Use of Tamper.
Then followed a tamper, an Imple
ment like a large Held roller, each sec
tion f which bears closely set prongs
a bout ten Inches long, somewhat like
tho spikes attached to tho wheels of
a steam roller to tear up the road, only
longer and rounded on the end. This
tamper does the work Its name Indi
catesIt completes the mixture and
the oil and dirt and tamps It down.
After Its use more oil and dirt were
milled until three layers had been ap
plied, and then the stenm roller com
pleted the work.
About two and a half gallons of oil
were used to the square yard. This
oil sells, according to quality, at from
I to 7 cents per gallon. Taking 5
cents as an average and building n
road sixteen feet wide, which Is wider
than Is necessary for the oil, wo have
a cost for oil of about $1,175 per mile.
The labor cost Is to be added to that.
It Is certainly the cheapest mudless
road that has yet been devised, as the
rock roads run quickly Into largo mon
ey when the material must bo carried
in by rail.
Repairs arc readily made In this
form of road construction. The top
Is plowed up, moro oil added, tamped
ami rolled, mid tho surfaco Is as good
as new. It is not a road that does not
need repair. No such road Is built.
Even tho city's gran I to blocks wear
out under the creaking wheels of its
heavy trnfllc. Tho fundamental fault
of American country road builders Is
their Idea that n road will stay built.
It won't. It is not in tho nature of
things, Tho best of roads need repair,
and wise is thut commissioner who has
learned that In road maintenance it
stitch In tlmo saves nine. Unfortu
nately not many of them havo learned
Evidently tho black mud regions, far
from gravel ami limestone, need not
tit helplessly marooned In mud. A
A'ay out has apparently been found
over a solid, substantial bridge, built

DECAY OF TIN.
Remarkable Alteration Which Takes
Place In the Metal.
Anything made of tin, it seems, is
doomed to n brief existence. This
metal is subject to n remarkablejdnd
of alteration, a species of disease to
which It is liable. When exposed to
tho nlr tin undergoes no chemical
change, ns do iron and copper, which,
of course, chemically combine with the
oxygen or with water. The tin, how
ever, still remains metallic tin, but
gradually becomes gray nnd dull and
falls to fine powder.
Tho disease is "catching." It Infects
or induces the same change in other
masses of tin in tho Immediate neigh
borhood. Wo are told that In a Rus
sian Imperial magazine, in place of tin
uniform buttons, little heaps of powder
were found. A consignment of Dunlin
tin sent from Rotterdam to Moscow
in 1877 arrived nt the latter place In
tho form of powder. This alteration is
duo to a change in tho internal crys
talline structure of the nietnl and Is
analogous to the slow transformation
of monocllnlc sulphur to rhombic sul
phur. As a result, objects of tin of
archaeological interest are rare. Those
that havo been found have been In the
form of earthenware vessels, knobs,
etc., which have been found In tho
Swiss lake dwellings coated with tin
foil. Cnsslterlte or tinstone is tho sin
gle ore from which the tin has been
obtained In any quantity. Knowledge

A PLACID MERCHANT.
He Had Some Regard For the Social
Side of Trade.
The summer visitor in u small sea
port town was umuzed nud amused at
the assortment of merchandise display
ed iu tho little storo ut tho head of the
wharf. The buowcuso was devoted to
an assortment of candy at ouo end and
a lot of cigars nud tobacco ut the oth
er end nud no barrier between. Next
to tho showcase stood a motor engine
valued at several hundred dollars.
Thinking to plcuso tho proprietor,
tho visitor remarked that Oven tho
largo department stores in Dostou
could not boast of such a collection.
"Well," ho snld, "I ain't aping them
stores, I can tell you. I aim to keep
what my folks want. When a man
wonts nn engine for his bo't ho wants
It, and if tho fish nro running he can't
wait to send way to Portland or Dos
ton for It. He wants It when ho docs,
then and there."
After a little pnuso ho continued:
"I don't like tho way they do busluess
in them big stores, anyway. Why,
when you go into a storo up to Dos
tou tho first thing you know some
body asks you what you want.

Church Women Entertain Supper
Crowd With Staff of Life.
A novel Idea for n church entertain
mcnt Is a supper In which all tho
courses are of bread In some form or
have the staff of life as nn Important
factor In their composition.
For n recent function of tho kind In
vitatlons wcro Issued In tho following
"Tho Ladles' AM society of Srt
John's church cordially request your
presenco nt n staff of llfo supper on
(such a date) at 7 p. m. (price 7,"
Perhaps a better Idea cannot bo giv
en of how to conduct such n merry
making than to describe the supper
for which these cards wcro Issued:
The tnblo was effectively nnd nt the
samo tlmo most economically decorat
ed. The centerpiece was n hugo sand
wich loaf hollowed out to form a boat
and filled with paper flowers. Smaller
loaves also scooped out nnd lined with
paraffin paper held tho olives and
Tho first course was n delicious
cream toast served In placo of soup.
This was followed by bread fritters
with a substantial course of veal loaf
nnd green pens In Ilttlo boxes of hol
lowed out bread browned in tho oven.
Instead of n salad they had excellent
club sandwiches and for dessert French
pancakes rolled in powdered sugar.
Coffeo and cake came last of nil.
Tho place cards found nt each cover
bore on ouo side tho names of the
guests as usual, nnd on tho reverse
each had a question rolntlng to bread
in history, legend, etc. Between
courses these queries wcro read aloud
nnd the answers searched for. It
holped to pass the time merrily.
Here nro a few of tho questions ns
examples of the series:
What real person when told that the
poor were dying for want of bread Is
reported to have said, "Why don't they
cat cake?" Marie Antoinette.
Who tlrst called bread tho "staff of
life?" Jonathan Swift.
What marvelous bread saved many
lives? Tho manna that fell in tho
After supper the frolic nssumcd the
general character of a sociable, with
several merry contests In which bread
played a part. For instance, a table
was rolled upon the scene upon which
several kinds of loaves were heaped up
and players were called on to give
each Its proper name, as New England
loaf, etc. All those who succeeded In
writing out complete lists drew for a

The Perfect Living Room.
After all tho modern house deco
rators have said their last word on
the subject it would be hard to Dnd
anything half so satisfactory as the
simple rules given by William Morris
for the making of a perfect room. The
woman who Is planning to rearrange
her house this fall with a view to add
ing to its comfort nnd attractiveness
would do well to read over what Wil
liam Morris wrote about tho furnish
ing of the living room.
"Perhaps it will not try your pa
tience too much," he writes, "If I lay
before you my idea of tho fittings nec
essary to the sitting room of a healthy
person first a bookcase with a great
many books In It, next a table that
will keep steady when you write or
work at it, then several chairs that
you can move and n bench that you
can sit or Ho upon; next a cupboard
with drawers; next, unless either the
bookcase or tho cupboard be very
beautiful with painting or carving,
you will want pictures or engravings,
such as you can afford, only not stop
gaps, but real works of art upon the
wall, or else the wall itself must bo
ornamented with some beautiful or
restful pattern. Wo shall also want
a vnso or two to put flowers In, which
lntter you must have sometimes, espe
cially If you live in town. Then there
will bo tho fireplace, of course, which
hi our climato Is bound to bo tho chief
object In tho room."
A Dinner Mishap,
Dreadful wns tho embarrassment of
a debutante who was pushed so vig
orously under tho tnblo at her first
dinner that she spilled claret from
every glass at tho table.
Tho hostess took It well, though suo
could doubtless havo murdered tho
girl's dinner partner, but sho heaved
a sigh for her best tablecloth, for claret
makes a bad stain.
Tho man redeemed his fault by quiet
ly rubbing tho spot In front of his
placo with salt until It almost entirely
disappeared. Ills partner's attention
attracted, she, too, started a salt rub.
Soon all tho guests at tho tablo wcro
laughingly doing tho samo until by
tho end of tho dinner scarcely a traco
could bo found of tbo spilled wlno.
