ON PUBLIC ROAD WORK
TAE PLOW THE DRAG SCRAPER
THE ROAD GRADER AND THE
SPLIT LOG DRAG ARE THE
CONSTANT FRIENDS OF
THE ROAD
While A an road builders arc

ah Qj f the
they ly rt

aving
built ut lously
when askeW to provide funds to re
build the road that has been allowe
to go to ruin
It is important that farmers lean
of the benefits to be derived from
good earth roads that county boards
be impressed with the need of a pro
per maintenance of the same and
hat road builders and overseers learn
how best to care for the roads in
their charge
The persistent and powerful ene
mies of earth roads are water and
narrow tires and the Constant effort
of the men in charge of the roads
should be > to guard against their des
tructiveness and remedy all damage as
quickly as possible The simple im
plements which have been found to be
of the greatest assistance in this
work are the plow the drag scraper
the wheel scraper the road grader
and 4he splitlog drag
With a sandy soil and a subsoil
of clay or clay and gravel deep plow
Ing so as to raise and mix the clay
with surface soil and sand will prove i
beneficial The combination forms a
sandclay road at a trifling expense
On the other hand if the road be en
tirely of sand a mistake will be made
if it 4s plowed unless clay be added
Such plowing would merely deepen
the sand and at the same time break
up the small amount of hard surface
material which may have formed If
the subsoil is clay and the surface
scant in sand or gravel plowing
should not be resorted to as it would
result in a clay surface rather than
one of sand or gravel A road fore
man must know not only what to plow
and what not to plow but bow and
when to plow If the road is of the
kind which according to the above in
structions should be plowed over its
whole width i he best method Is to
run the first furrow in the middle of
the road and work out to the sides
thus forming a crown Results from
such plowing are greatest In the
spring or early summer
In ditches a plow can be used to
good advantage but should be fol
lowed by a scraper or grader To
m 1ke wide deep ditches nothing bet
ter than the ordinary drag scraper
has yet been devised For hauls un
der 100 feet or in making fills it
Is especially serviceable It Is a mis
take however to attempt to handle
long haul material with this scraper
as the wheel scraper is better adapt
ed to such work For hauls of ma
terial more than 800 feet a wagon
should be used
MISSIONARY SHANTYBOAT
Burleigh McNeill a young man of
Smithville Ritchie county and son of
a minister is planning to go to South
America as a missionary among the
sun worshippers and will make the
trip in a shantyboat whose construc
tion he has nearly finished McNeill
will launch his craft two miles from
Smithville near the home and ex
pects to drift down the Ohio to Cairo
where he will install machinery which
has been ordered from Minneapolis
The craft will weigh 2500 pounds
when equipped It is 27 feet long and
7 feet wide and is built of white wal
nut It will be lighted with electricity
generated from the river current Mc
Neill expects to tie his boat in swift
flowing currents at night and thus
generate power to run him through
the day
dayAfter
After leaving Cairo his course will
be down the Mississippi to Its mouth

believed and be ac it
the charity work wide
the various religious j rnal
bodies The character o which
is hoped to be accomplAo pwlll be
tho same as is done by this organiza
tion In every city where it has an I
office It is in no way designed to pre
vent or interfere In the work of any 1
other charity dispensers of the city
but to act as an active assistant and
cooperate with them keeping closely
in touch with the deservin poor of
the city watching their needs lad
eating where charity may be best di
rected and where it Is most desired
and needed The work of the Associat
ed Charities is to prevent overlapping
of charity which is so often the case
wherever there Is not some organized
movement to take hold of the work
and see just what is being done In
other cities the city the county and
many of the religious and fraternal
bodies direct all of their charity work
entirely through the agency of the
Associated Charities
Besides devoting much time to the
discernment of the needs of the poor
the aim of the organization Is to in
duce the poor who are deserving of
help to earn what Is given them as
much as possible in many of the
cities the Associated Charities estab
lish kindling yards where the needy
and hungry are attended to and fed
after they have cut a certain amount
of kindling which is afterwards sold
and the proceeds applied to the sup
port of the organization
The work of establishing the Asso
elated Charities is necessarily some
what expensive As is done else
where It is expected that slight con
tributions fo Its support will be made
by the city council the fiscal court
and the various organizations of the I
theI
city interested in its work Plans I

for a benefit at the moving picture

RELIGIOUS CENSUS TO BE TAKEN
IN CITY
The satisfactory results of the reli
gious census of the city taken two
years ago under the direction of the
Ministerial Association were such
that it has been decided to take an
other this year This decision was
reached at the regular meeting of the
Ministerial Association this week
Thursday April 9th was selected as
the date for the census which will
be taken by a selected number of cen
sus takers Each church is expected
to furnish its quota of enumerators
who will report to Rev Dr M B
Adams pastor of the First Baptist
church who has been selected as
chairman of the census He will be
assisted In looking after details and
arrangements by Rev C R Hudson
of the Christian church who had
charge of the work last year
Cards have been printed which will
be furnished to the enumerators who
will start out early Thursday morning
on their task The city will be divided
up into districts and a house to house
canvass be made the name and cell
gious affiliation of every one being not
ed on the cards under the proper head
Ing Tabulations will be made at the
conclusion of the work showing the
strength of each denomination and
the religious inclinations of those who
are not members of the church
