with n little brim rolling up nil nround

Some dispense with the brim almost
entirely, having nothing moro thnn n

up on the crown in front or at tho

Almost Identical with these fashion

are tho crocheted wool caps which nro

will bo used for nil sorts of outdoor
sports during tho wintry weather. Al

The First Universities.
To fix precisely the date of tho rise
of tho first universities is impossible
for the reason that they were not
founded, but grow. They were started
by n few able men who had something
they wished to teach and youths
wished to learn. Gradually tho free,
voluntary center of learning became
tho organized affair wo know as the
university. Among tho earliest of
these centers of learning wero Saler
no, Naploa and Bologna, Italy being
tho first laud to experience tho literary
revival. Wo may Bay that Salerno
university was fairly established by
tho year 1000, tho University of Be-

GRADES ON HIGHWAYS.
Three or Four Per Cent Slope Advis
able For Heavy Traffic.
A 1 per cent grade on a road means
n rise of oho foot for each hundred
feel of distance traveled up the hill.
A 10 per cent grade means ten feet
rise in each hundred feet so traveled.
A 1 per cent grade, then, menns that
In traveling uphill ono mile nn nscent
Is made of fr-J.S feet, while n 10 per
cent grade means n rise In altitude
of 028 feet in n mile. Accurate tests
have shown that n horse which can
pull 1,000 pounds on a level rond,cau
pull only 810 pounds on n rise of one
foot In llfty, and on n rise of ono
foot In ten he can pull only 250 pounds.
These facts show thnt tho greatest
load that can bo hauled over a road
Is the load which can bo taken up
the steepest hill on that road or
through th deepest mudhole. It I?
therefore advised that all highways
traveled by heavily loaded vehicles
should be kept within a 3 or -1 per
cent grade if practicable. To do this
may require a change of location to
get nround hilK always keeping In
mind that the lower the grade thr
larger the load may be hauled and
the cost of haulage kept at the lowest

ONE WAY TO BETTER F.0ADS.
Automobile Club Gives Freo Dr.irjs to
A plan inaugurated several months
ago by the Manhattan (Kan.) Motor
club has been successful in bettering
tho condition of tho country roads In a
radius of ten miles from Manhattan
at least CO per cent, and tho plan Is
so Inexpensive thnt the club is urging
other towns to tnke It up.
The club gives a road drag to ev
ery fanner who will gunrantee to use
it to keep three miles of road in good
condition. The club has given away
moro than forty drags and Is getting
calls for them at the rate of nbout
four a week.
Tho club first made the offer several
months ago. The farmers were slow
In taking advantage of It, but a few
days ago tho club's president, Dr. J.
D. Colt, advertised the offer in the lo
cal newspapers, and tho result has
been that tho drags are being taken
by tho farmers as fast as tho club can
get them made. The club has placed
no limit on tho territory in which the
offer Is good, and the drags are In use
In all sections of the county. They
cost the club about $0 each.

roads? If not you don't belong

Tar on English Roads.
The county surveyors in England
have reported that the tarring of
roads has resulted In a saving of 20
to 25 per cent of the cost of the road
maintenance. Tho average cost of
spraylug with tar is 105 per mile.
Experienced men say that It pays to
spend this much for tarring the roads
that cost $750 to $1,000 per mile a
year for maintenance. Nothing more
satisfactory than tar has been found.
Two methods are used In applying It.
If the road Is resurfaced tho material
is previously saturated with tar. Ou
roads that are not used too much such
treatment will last five or six years
The other system Is to spread hot
tar ou the surface, and this has proved
to be more thnn a dust protector. It
makes the road waterproof and binds
together the material, making It more
reslstent to wnter. wheels and hoofs.

In his "Ode to Nnpoleon" calls him
"tho Cincinnati of the West." For
having n new world on his shoulders

called him the "Stepfather of Ills
