Director of Experimental Farm
Gives Proof From Experl
eccB of Its Valua
The 'split log"1 drag, so called' be
cause the- first drags of the kind
were made from log of tha proper
size and length, flnda a warm, sup
porter In A. H. Leldigh, dlrector'of
the Amarillo experimental farm 'of
the department of agriculture. In
a letter to the Daily Panhandle to
day, Mr. Leldigh glvea the following
convincing proof of the drag's worth
from actual experience here:
Hare loed Drag Two Yearn. ;'
"For two eeaeona we have used
a road drag on the moat used roads
on the experimental farm. The una
of the drag will he kept up and ex
tended and we will use It while the
ground la Juat drying after a rain.
! had hoped to get good results
from the drag on account of the
aoll here, but as we have only used
II. a little and on roads frequently
crossed by plot.-s and disk. Jnd have
gotten excellent results I now think
It time to call attention to this meth
od of overcoming I he mud troubles
which are so well known In this re
gion. Ilrag Costa 3.10.
"The drag is well known In jthe
North and East and will be Just as
ell liked here when it is once tried.
Our draft ot $2.10 to make, and
covers seven feet of road with two
horses Ht each passage. It is so
made that it brings some dirt to
tho center r.f the road and thus keeps
a good crown on the part fost used
The main thing done by the drag is
to puddle and compart the surface
soil, thm causing it to bake and
brdn w hn drying and this not, only
gives a good road for travel but.
also turns the water better when it
rains and the road will therefore dry
fltiirfcer and cut. np Tinder travel
much leas as the process Is repeated.
Ised While Road Is Wei.
"To get results the drag has to
he ued while the road is wet and
we hae thought that it does well
hero an soon as a rain has dried tip
just enough to give a little dry soil
In places so that the dirt will not
stick too bad to the drag.
"The drag ought to he an excel
lent tool for the Amarillo streets,
but It has to he used w hen the streets
are wet so as to cause baking. Yours
truly. "A. H LEIDIGH. Supt."yi
