SURFACE OF ROADS.
Only «Ii«- Handout Stoiic Should Be
I aril lor Top I ;i % !-i-.
The advantages to bo derived from
good stcne roads are co manifold that
all other materials should be discarded
where tough road etono is available for
their construction and maintenance.
Hut it is greater economy to use earth
or gravel than to go to the expense of
macadamizing roads with too soft, too
Irittle or rotten material. Many use
this because it is easily prepared. A
road should never be surfaced with
imything short of trap rock cr serpen
tine. Inferior material may often be
used with impunity for the first layer,
or foundation, but even this should be
■elected with great care.
The evils resulting from improper
.(instruction of stone roads are even
greater than those from the nae of im
proper material. Macadam never in
tended that a heterogeneous conglomera
tion of stone and mud should be called
•i macadam road. Neither did he in
tend that the name should be applied
to roads constructed of large and small
■tones mixed together and BpreacTupon
the ratface. The surface of a road built
in this manner is constantly disturbed
by the larger stones, which work to the
surface and which are knocked hither
and thither by the wheels of vehicles
and the feet of animals. Such methods
of construction cannot be too severely
condemned.
Tht> first course of foundation of the
macadam road can be made of the
coarsest stones from the crusher, pro
vided that they are of nniform size and
that each stone shall weigh not over
six ounces and will pass through a M}£
inch ring. Where the road is to be
eight inches thick this foundation
should be four inches after rolling. If
the road is to be of greater thickness
than eight inches, the foundation
should bo composed of two courses
separately rolled.
After having thoroughly rolled this
foundation apply enough ground stone
or coarse sand to till the interstices.
This should be wetted and thoroughly
rolled until a hard and uniform surface
is obtained.
Upon this foundation the surface
material afaoold be placed, wetted and
thoroughly rolled. The stones of which
this surface material is composed
should be if possible crushed to a size
of one inch in diameter; but if that is
Dot possible they should never be lar
ger in diameter than X% inches.
Ground stone screenings should then be
spread upon the surface, wetted and
rolled as before, until a hard smooth
surface is the result.
STATE AID FOR ROADS.
What the System Ha* Done For the
Karmt-rs of Now Jersey.
Road building by state aid in steadi
ly increasing in New Jersey, says En
gineering News. The principal con-
Btraction has been in the direction of
reads four, six and eight inches deep,
as experience lias shown that properly
drained earth is a sufficiently good
foundation for any road superstneture,
and all that is wanted is enough
"metal" on the eurface to etand up
under the wear nntil the roads have to
be resurfaced. This happens when the
roads are subjected to two or three
inches of wear. To cheaply maintain
the surface an application of coarse
Band or gravel and loam containing
oxide of iron will keep the surface in
guild condition and make a soft cushion
for the feet of horses.
The authorities of New Jersey have
decided on roads 10, 1:2 and 14 feet
wide in the country and 16 feet wide

[From L. A. W. Bulletin.]
in the towns as the limits for state aid.
If the citizens wish wider reads, they
must do the remaining work at their
own cost. The roads are now costing
from 20 to 70 cents per square yard,
depending on the locality, availability
of stone, etc.
Before the advent of stone roads the
leading highways, not graveled, were
almost a bed of sand, and teams carried
40 or 50 baskets of produce to Philadel
phia markets with difficulty. Farmers
shipped produce mainly by railways
and boats as being the cheaper method.
The farmers now cart to market
instead of tending by boat and return
with from throe to five tons of manure,

Vini thus effect v large saving. n upii
carting an average load of ISO b&ekete,
the farmer saves by the use of his own
team about $10 per day. He also saves
a commission of 10 per cent, or about
$0 on 150 baskets, by marketing his
own produce.

"We don't tl*ink we have ever known
the roads to be quite so bad on this part
of the Lord's footstool, as they were
last spring. An empty wagon is a load
for a team on any of the unpaved
streets," says the Quenemo (Kan.) Re
publican.

Beefy Beauties.
"In Turkey the most beautiful and
desirable woman Is the one who
weighs the most," writes an American
who has been sojourning in the sul
tan's domain. "A thin and willowy
creature would have no social standing
in Turkey and would be a total failure
on the stage in Constantinople. Un
less a woman is fat she cannot secure
an engagement In a musical hall, and
the fatter she is the more enthusiasm
she arouses and the larger is her sal
ary.
'•On the evening after my arrival in
Constantinople 1 went to the Concordia
Music hall, and there I saw more fem
inine breadth, depth, thickness, heft
and circumference than I had ever be
fore seen under one roof. The first
woman who sang was fat; the second
was fatter; [he third was—no, not fat
test, although she was much heavier
than No. 2. She was merely the prom
ise of what was yet to come. They
were holding back the really big art
ists for the finale.
"At last these two came on. They
were 'sisters' and they made a large
family by themselves. The house arose
in joy as the two vast, egg shaped ob
jects appeared on the stage. The
Turks, who had been sitting stolidly
in the boxes looking with dull uncon
cern at the frail vocalists who weighed
less than 300, now straightened up and
clapped their hands."
Railroad Ties.
A fact of some interest in railroad
construction is the great diversity in
the number of ties used to the mile on
different lines, as well as In the size
and quality of timber. Thus, accord
ing to the construction details of the
New York, New Haven and Hartford
railway, the number of ties used on
that line is 2,800 to the mile, three
quarters of these being chestnut and
one-quarter oak, while some roads use
2,000 only, or 2,500 to the mile. More
than GO per cent of the ties are cut 8
feet long, 12 per cent 9 feet and the
rest S!£ feet long; the nine foot ties are
'.scd chiefly by the southern and gulf
group of railroads, where pine timber
Is very abundant and cheap. The New
England roads have their ties cut from
five to sis Inches in thickness, while
the southern roads seem to prefer sev
en inch ties; the width of the ties like
wise varies from live to six inches in
New England to eight inches in the
central northern and the southern
roads.—New York Sun.

The Latest X Kay Invention
Is the Endoscope, which is for the pur
pose of examining the interior of the
stomach. It is claimed, that with this
instrument, the treatment of stomach
troubles will be revolutionized, as it lo
cates the cause of disease, With due
respect to science, however, would state
that the causes of stomach troubles have
been known for the past fifty years,
and likewise their cure, which is Hostet
ter'fl Stomach Bitters, a medicine that
has many imitators, but no equals. It
cures dyspepsia, indigestion, biliousness,
constipation, nervousness, insomnia. It
also prevents malaria, fever and ague,
and keeps the bowels regular. When
not feeling right, take a dose. It is the
standard medicine of the American
people. Look for Private Revenue
