Ita Pirat t'onitrnrtloB.
The chief work of the architect and
the engineer is to devise means to de
pnve water of its power to destroy.
Notwithstanding this plain fact,
there are very few roads constructed
with reference to it They are usually
constructed without underdrainage,
generally with a flat surface, and often
with very imperfect ditches. The wa
ter lies on the surface, to soak the road
bed into the condition of a sponge or a
mortar bed, to course along the road
way, scoring great gutters, and disin
tegrating the road material. Often the
water from adjoining fields Is allowed
to run Into the road, so that the high
way becomes a drainage ditch for the

that has rushed along the surface, as
if the road had been constructed for a
In this way we expend millions of
dollars in road making and seldom
have a good road. The work of each
season disappears before the next sum
mer, and the annually recurring round
of repairs begins afresli. For this
profligate waste there is no excuse. A
properly constructed roadbed is one of
the most durable works of man. There
is nothing about it to decay, and if the
effect of water is provided against, it
remains for ages. The well defined
earthworks scattered over southern
Ohio, the work of "prehistoric races
are a proof of the indestructible char
acter of eartii embankments and
mounds when properly located. Even
our savage preueeessors hail sense
enough to guard their earthworks
against the action of water. Old Unman
roads constructed two thousand years
ago, are still traveled. The Unmans
showed us how to construct good roads.
All experience joins with common
sense, in repeating to us that the only
essential condition of a good road
(granting a practical grade), is drain

In tlmft (cia rrj cwr p-
present one was
the greenest of reporters.
A certain advertisement-seeking
prima donna had become involved in a
dispute with her manager over the
question of wearing tights in the new
opera bouffe Semiramis," and told the
reporters that the first night of the
opera woul I show the public which
side had triumphed.
Accordingly, the house was packed,
and Ferris a-as sent by the Planet to
witness the outcome of the struggle.
He watched the Amazon guard listless
ly in the opening chorus. He was anx
ious for the appearance of the prima
donna, and scarcely noticed the rough
maidens in tinfoil armor, until his eyes j
chanced to rest on the girl next to the j
ftont rank leader. I
She hal a different Iook from her as
sociates, lacking something of tbeir
I professional air, and singing as if she
enjoyed it The freshness and native
grace of the girl attracted Ferris.
Since boyhood, he had knocked about
the world, and it was seldom that a
new face interested him; but to-night
he found himself following this
coryphee with his eyes throughout the
act, becoming so much absorbed that
he nearly forgot why he had been sent
to the theater.
Next day the face of the chorus girl,
and its utter incongruity with the sur
roundings, came to to his mind; and
the evening found him once more at
the theater where "Semiramis" was
From a fellow reporter he learned
that the girl's name was Marguerite
Gray, and that ihe carrie l about with
her a mother who might have played
the role of the dragon in "Siegfried.
Ferris had little trouble in getting be
hind the scenes, and, thanks to the
good offices of the manager (who was
objectionably grateful to him for the
putf his opera had received in tbe
I'lanet), he was enabled to meet his
unknown. .She was about to leave the
theater, dressed in the quietest of cos
tumes, and accompanied by the afore
said mother, who would havfe put

er. Ferris conveyed the information
that he had long meant to look the
mother up to ask after his old friend,
and ended by obtaining permission to
call at her flat next day.
Next day he went to Mrs. Gray's
little Harlem flat, and, having mad
inquiries th:t morning, was able to
talk with a fair degree of intelligence
on the subject of the dear departed
Gray. In fact, so kindly did he speak
of his putative dead friend that the
widow's heart was won over, and he
was warmly invited to call often

Gray felt the blood surge to her face at

"Why, so are we," said the girl. "We

ondary importance. If kept dry our
common clay makes an ideal road. It
is cliosfii for race courses because of
it: excellent qualities No one evir
heard if trying the extreme speed of
horses on maea-laiti, asphalt or granite
pavement. The less of th.se the bet
ter for our country roads, provided
they could be kept dry.
Aln.ve every ot her consideration is
the road bed itself. It should be umier
i! rained so that the water cannot ac
cumulate or remain underneath. The
inequalities in the surface, depressions
and mud holes, arc usually caused by
water softening the road bed. In this
spring the frost heaves and disin
tegrates the road, because the earth
below has been sortUcd with water.
With thorough uudt nlrain:;ge frost
would not disturb the road. There
should be siit.icient crown to the road
to carry the water at once to the
ditches. I'etter still, the tiles for un
derdrainage may le laid 1m1ow theU.t
toni of the ditches, with intakes at
proper distances and a free discharge
at the first natural watercourse. In
this way our roads would le thorough
ly drained, and th water would run
oft without washing the road sides.
The ditches might be made shallow, so
that there would be no "upset by
vehicles getting out of the road.
The custom of using gravel and stone
of ali sizs except the ri-jht size, de
feats the purpose for which a covering
need. No gravel as large as a
bon's egg should eve- be put on a roaiL
it should be screened and, if the larger
stones are usfd, they should lKcrushe;L
No stone should bo used larger than
two inches in its largest measurement
Large gravel stones will never p.ic.
They work to the surface, make the
road dangerous to horses, and help to
destroy the "surface. The same rule
applies to broken stone.
Macadam's rule: "If 3-011 put a stone
on the road that you can't put into
your mouth, I won't pav 3-011 a shil
ling," is still sound.
The small stones form a compact
solid mass. If laid upon a well-made
foundation, they will wear as. long as
the solid stone.
It is not at all necessary to ne a
great ttuckucss or road metal. 1 holt
sands of miles of the best country
roads, lasting indefinitely, haw been
made with but three.four and five inches
of macadam. Hut the foundation was
properly constructed smooth, compact,
and well drained.
Indeed, the road is the better for a
lighter coating of road metal, because
it will then retain some of the elas
ticity of the underlaying claj, so desir
able for horses and vehicles.
If proper attention were given to the
drainage and construction of roadbed,
much U'ss metal would be required,
and very little expense for repairs
would le required. Our roads would

antique in the large waves is very

Cbiipp.-ft Tent in a Cow.
This trouble is hanlly to Ik? avoided
when the milker wets the teats during
milking. The wetting and subsequent,
drying will certainly cause cracks in
the skin, and once these happen it is
difficult to heal the wounds w hile the
cow is giving milk, as at every milking
the cracks are broken open anil thus
the trouble is made worse. The bet
remedy U to apply pure vaseline to the
teats and soften the skin and the
wou nds ami milk wit h grea t care.
After the milking the vaseline is again
applied, and if needed surgical rubber
plaster should he wrapped around the
teats. H3 gentle handling the wounds
may be healed in a few du3s.

Butter made from cows fed on sweet
corn fodder has been found by experts
to score in flavor three points higher
than when feJ on blue grass or peas
and oats or on clover. The score under
the feeding of sweet corn fodder is
forty-five, while with the three latter
only forty-two each. Rape seems to
affect flavor in butter, as in feeding it
the score is but thirty-aine Colmau's
