STATE CONTROL OF ROADS.
Why a Kansas County's Surveyor Fa
vors a Uniform System.
The state control of roads In order
to bring about uniformity and elimi
nate the ollices that have to do with
road building is advocated by J. M.
Lindsay, county surveyor of Wyan
dotte county, Kan. Mr. Lindsay would
abolish the otllcu of county engineer
nnd have a resident state engineer ap
pointed either by the state highway
euglneer or n good roads commission.
As a continuation of the plan the
township road overseer would bo un
der the control of tho resident engi
neer, nnd the result, Mr. Lindsay
says, would bo a uniformity of roads
"Suppose," Mr. Lindsay said, "that
the county commissioners of one coun
ty should erect a concrete bridge and
on the same road in the next county a
cheap 'tin' affair is erected. In a few
years the cheap bridge may wear out.
and a heavily loaded wagon or a
thrashing machine would be compel
led to go around It. Under state con
trol this condition would uot arise, as
tho plans for bridges would be more
or less uniform. Not that all bridges
would necessarily be concrete, but the
capacity and condition of every bridge
in the state would be known by every
resident engineer. If the survey of
every county road were made In con
formity with roads in adjoining couu
tlcs the ultimate result would be a
road straight across tho state at no
"This would bo the caso if surveys
for all generally traveled roads were
filed In the office of tho state highway
engineer or with a good roads com
mission. Then, too, the 'road boss'
who insists upon his own Ideas of
road building, whether thoy aro right
or wrong, would be eliminated. He
would bo under the direction of a
competent engineer, and his bit of
road would receive the same attention
as any other road In the state."
Mr. Lindsay is one of tho three
members of a committee appointed by
the Kansas Engineering society to
procure the passage of good roads
laws In the Kansas legislature nest
winter. He is endeavoring to get the
support of the society for state con
trol of highways.
DRAGGING ROADS WITH AUTOS
How Six Machines Helped to Make
Two Miles Smooth and Hard.
Tho Muskogee (OUIa.i Motor club Is
Improving tho roads In Muskogee
county. This club Is composed of ilfty
motorists. The members huvo bought
fifty split log drags and are using
them ou the roads leading out of Mus
kogee. The first trial was made n
short time ago and proved a great sue
A stretch of road two miles long
leading out of ono of tho city's prln
clpal thoroughfares was selected
When tho ground was in tho right con
dltlou tho six spilt log drags were at
tached to tho rear axles of six ma
chines, nnd the two miles of road were
thoroughly dragged. Tho result la that
they are as smooth and hard as could
bo desired. It took the motorists about
a quarter of a day to do the work.
This work Is to bo extended. The
fifty members of the club aro to bo dl
vlded Into squads of six each. Each
squad Is to bo given a division of road
to Improve. More drags will be made
Tho material In a drag of this kind
costs $1.30 If bought at a lumber yard
and hardware store, but any farmer
can make ouo with ordinary tools for
practically nothing by usltig spilt logs,
as the nam of the drag suggests.

Why Stephenson Thought There Was
No Power Equal to It.
When G cargo Stephenson was visit
ing the .seat of Sir I'.obert I'cel nt
Drayton on one occasion, says the
writer of "Famous Urltish Engineers,"
there happened to be present Dr.
Ihickland, the scientist, and Sir Wil
liam Follett, the famous advocate.
Stephenson discussed with Dr. Buck-
land one of his favorite theories as to
the formation of coal and, though un- i
doubtedly In the right, was ultimately
vanquished by the arguments and ora
tory of the doctor, who was a better
master of tongue fence than himself.
Next morning while pondering over his i
defeat in the solitude of the garden ho j
was accosted by Sir William Follett
and confided to that gentleman tho
story of his failure. (
Sir William, acquainted with tho de- :
tails of tho matter in dispute, agreed
to take up the ease and noon after
ward attacked Dr. llucklnml on the
subject. A long discussion ensued, in
which the man of law completely si
lenced the man of science, who was
at last compelled to owu himself van
quished. "Sir Itobort Feel, highly
nmused at this example of "tit for
tat." then turned to the inventor and
Inquired, with a laugh:
"And wh..t do you say on this mat
ter, Mr. Stephenson V"
"Whv," he replied. "I will only say
this that of all tho powers above nnd
under tho earth there seems to me no
power equal o the gift of tho gab."

There seems to bo no limit to the
