UNIQUE TOY FOR SMALL BOY
Old Man's Leg Swings and Dandles
Youth Upon Foot —Weight Keeps
Up Motion for Long Time.
What small boy has not ridden "A
cock horse to Banbury Cross," or
wherever the town was? A Missouri
man has devised a toy which portrays
this operation in an amusing fash
ion. The figure of an old man, prob
ably meant for grandfather, is seated
on a chair. One leg is crossed over
the other and swings on a pivot. A
balancing weight is secured to the
upper end of the moving leg, and this
weight moves with the hollow body
of the man and keeps the leg swing
ing for a long time. The figure of a
small boy is seated astride the old
man's foot, and hanging inside his
body is a weight which counterbal-

GOOD ROADS INSTATE OF PENNSYLVANIA.
The Views Given Above Show a Road In Beaver County, Pennsylvania, Be
fore Improvements Were Begun and the Road After Completion.
DISCUSS A DULUTH HIGHWAY
Through Thoroughfare to Be Advo
cated by Commercial Bodies of
Three Big Cities.
Three enthusiastic good roads
boomers from Duluth met the other
day with the St. Paul Association of
Commerce to enlist the help of that
organization in a systematic campaign
for obtaining a modern highway from,
the twin cities to Duluth. Minneapolis
is expected to help also, and in a short
time the Civic Commerce association
and the Minneapolis Automobile club
will be called into the movement.
The conference was informal and no
action was taken, beyond an assurance
by the St. Paul men that they would
join hands with the state, the coun
ties and the local communities in the
plans of the Duluth men.
The latter realize that while the
twin cities and Duluth will derive the
greatest benefit from the proposed
highway, the bulk of the cost will falJ
on the counties lying between, Wash
ington, Chisago, and Pine, and they
purpose first to carry on a systematic
campaign of education, through a se
ries of county meetings and confer
ences at which an effort will be made
to prove to these counties that the
road will be worth more to them than
it will cost them under the Elwell act.
Residents of Sandstone are reported
to be enthusiastic over the through
highway idea because they are satis
fied that such a road, aside from fur
nishing a good road for local transpor
tation, will attract a heavy automobile
traffic both ways from which every
city and village will profit.
CONDUCIVE TO SOCIAL LIFE
When Roads Are In Good Condition
Easy Matter to Drive to Neigh
bors or Elsewhere.
(By W. C. PALMER. Agricultural Editor.
North Dakota Agricultural College.)
One of the needs of country life Is
a better social life. It has been found
that good roads are conducive to so
cial life on the farms. When the road
is good It is an easy matter to hitch
up and drive over to the neighbors,
to church, to the picnic, to the enter
tainment at the school house. The
good road is also followed by a better
school and better home. The better
road also makes the community more
attractive and the better class of peo
ple will want to live there. The good
road also makes it possible to market
the farm produce more easily and
cheaply, and at all times of the year.
These things result in the good road
making the land worth more. The
good road is to the farm what the
railroad is to the city.
Prof. M. L. Mosher, of the lowa Ex
periment station, says the newly se
lected seed corn should be hung up
immediately in a dry, well-ventilated
place, such as a dry cellar, a dry at
tic, or spare room, a dry shed or in
any other dry. well-ventilated build
ing. Do not hang it in a stable over
or near live stock, over oats or corn,
in any damp or close place. In a damp
cellar, in a closed attic, over a
kitchen, or out in the sunshine.
ROADS BADLY WASHED
Damage More Extensive on
Grades Than Level Stretches.
In Sandy Sections Wash May Be Ef
fectively Stopped by Use of Two-
Inch Planks—Clay Road Re
quires Different Treatment.
After hard or prolonged rains. road&
which have been constructed with a
flat surface are often gullied in the
center, or, if the road was well
crowned, the gutters or ditches are
usually badly washed.
As a rule, the damage is more ex
tensive on grades than on level
stretches. This is because the dam
age in general depends on the velocity
of water, and this, of course, is con
trolled by the steepness of the slope,
says the Fruit Grower and Farmer U
the water cuts ditches very deep, it
might be advisable to reduce the
grade of the road, if possible, either
by cutting down the summit or filling
at the foot of the hill, or both. It must
be remembered this is likely to be
economical in the end even if the
first cost seems high, since it will not
only save, on future maintenance, but
will decrease the tractive force re
quired to pull a load at this point.
There are, however, many grades
that cannot be changed, because of
In sandy sections, the wash may be
effectively stopped by two-inch planks
from six to twelve inches wide. and.
cut into three-foot sections. These
short planks are sharpened on one
end, and then enough of them to cov
er three feet in width of the gutter or
ditch are driven in edge to edge for a
depth of more than three feet, at right
angles to the grade of the road. If
they are driven in a little more than
flush with the gutter, there is no dan
ger of the road machine or drag strik
In a clay section, it is practically
impossible to drive a plank three feet
without splintering it. The method of
construction is entirely different from
that described for sandy sections. Old
logs or railroad ties, if they can be
secured, are better under these condi
tions. They should first be cut into
four-foot lengths. Trenches then are
sunk in the gutters at right angles to
the road, and the tie or log is placed
in the trench. Where the wash is
severe, several logs are placed direct- ■
ly over each other, like the flash-1
board in a dam. The top log or tie is
placed at least four inches below the!
gutter In order to prevent it from com-1
Ing in contact with a road drag or
road machine in operation. The ties
or logs are placed from 20 to 60 feet
apart, according to the grade of the
hill, and it is an easy matter to In
sert one whenever required.
The chief advantage gained by this
use of logs or planks Is that deep and
dangerous ditches which are not only
a menace to travel, but also make the
road narrow, are removed. When the
planks or logs are used, the entire
width of the road can be used by the
public, and the road is always safe.
Many sand beds that are bad at all
seasons can be improved by mixing
clay with sand by means of a plow
and harrow and then using the road
drag systematically. On the other
band, many clay sections that are bad
In wet weather can be improved by
first plowing and then mixing in sand
by means of the harrow, and finally
using the road drag.
The King Drag.
The truth of the matter is that with
a King drag and a plow a skilful man
can do anything that can t>e done with
a big four-horse road grader, and for;
all around work it is much better asi
well as mft«v times cheaper. |
