COST OF ROAD CONSTRUCTION
Much Depends on Amount and Char.
acter of Grading Necessary-Oth
er Factors Considered.
.Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
The cost of a road is dependent up
on not only the type of construction,
but the amount and character of grad
ing to be done, the cost of labor and
materials, the width and thickness of
surfacing, the character and amount
of drainage required, and other fac
tors of equal variability. Based upon
goieral averages, it has been ascer
tained by highway specialists of the
United States department of agricul,
ture that under average conditions mac
adam roads can be built in southern
states at from $4,000 to. $5,000 per
mile, gravel roads at from $1,500 to
$2,500 per mile, and sand-clay and top
soil roads at from $800 to $1,600 per
mile In New England and the other
eastern states, macadam roads are re
ported at from $6,000 to $9,000 per
mile, gravel roads at from $3,200 to
$5,000, and bituminous macadam from
$8,000 to $13,000, according to the
character of construction, whether sur
face-treated, penetration, or mixing
method. The bituminous typo is
quite general in the eastern states.
As indicating costs in cther sections
of country, the state highway commis
sioner of Michigan reported in 1913
the average cost for macadam roads
$4,300 per mile, clay-gravel roads $1,
600 per mile, and concrete roads about
$10,000 per mile. The average cost of
improved Michigan Road
state highways constructed in Ohio
in 1913 was $8,383. According to types
in 1912, the brick-paved highways av
eraged $14,660 per mile and the mac
adam highways $5,950. In California
the first 356 miles of the state system
of highways cost an average 'of $8,
143 per mile and consisted principally
of thin concrete with a thin coat of
bitumen. The maximum and mini.
mum figures given in this paragraph
are not absolute, but are intended to
present the usual range of costs. The
rates given include grading, drainage,
surfacing, and engineering costs.
BOOSTER FOR BETTER ROADS
Cost of Transportation of Produce tc
Market is Lessened-Ditch, Drain
and Drag Roads..
Good roads not only cheapen the
cost of transporting farm produce to
market, but make the countr-y a de
sirable place to live in.
We hear much talk about federal aid
for good roads, yet if we wait for
this movement, to crystallize into a
reality, the people of the country will
be riding in mudI for some time to
come. The thing to do is to take oft
coats and buckle into a plan for local
road improvement. Be a booster for
the grading of roads and follow up the
work with the King road drag for
The principle of all good roads- in
all States is the same, viz., keeping
the water out and off of the roadbeds.
Ditch, drain and drag the roads. This
is the tripod of good road building.
ADVANTAGES OF GOOD ROADS
Scarcely Secondary to Rail Transpor
tation In Their Far-Reaching Ef
fect on CivilizatIon.
The two great necessities o
modern life are education and trans
portation, for civilization travels in
the wake of good schools and good
roads. Good roads lead in more good
directions than the most far-seeing
can contemplate. Commerce begins
on the country roads and byways;
they affect school r#ttendance and lit
eracy; they control markets and
prices, values of land, the develop
ment and contentment of the people,
the cost and pleasure of living, and
are scarcely secondary to i-all trans
portation in their far-reaching effect.
They determine the character and
growth of the community, and, the
necessity for them cannot be overes
timated, for a country that isn't worth
a good road isn't worth living in.
idaho Boosts Good Roads.
The Southern Idaho Meter associa
tion was perfected at Boise, Idaho,
for the purpose of making a good
roads campaign in southern Idaho.
This marks an important step towvard
giving impetus to tho good roads
movement in the state.
Keep Weeds Down.
It does not take long to mow the
growth along the roadside,' ditch

it going to and from the fields oftimes,

MORE WEGHT IN H(
Type of Horses Needed
It does not follow that the horse
the southern farmer needs is the
one he thinks he needs. Moreover,
since opinions differ as to the type of
horse needed and the various kinds
of work required of farm horses de
mand various types of horses, it is
quite certain no one type of horse
will do best all the different kinds of
work required on southern farms.
The horse most needed will, there
fore, of necessity be in the nature of
a compromise. We must first deter
mine the most important work re
quired of the farm horse before we
can determine the type of horse most
needed, for it is only reasonable that
in his selection his most important
service should be given greatest
For those who expect to continue
the use of one-horse implements to
any large extent, the horse or mule
weighing around 1,000 pounds is most
needed. He must have quality, speed
and endurance, for with small one
horse implements the only chance to
obtain economical service is through
The class of farmers who are adopt
ing modern methods and using two
and three-horse implements, because
they do more economical and better
work and save man labor, is grow
ing rapidly, but is still comparative
ly small. Many of those who use
larger implements for plowing and
pieparing the land still adhere to one
horse implements for cultivating the
But the demand for larger farm
work stock is growing and will con
tinue to grow rapidly. The average
man who has begun the use of mod
ern implements and methods now de
mands a horse or mule weighing 100
to 200 pounds more than was most
popular ten years ago, and ten years
from now a horse or mule weighing
200 pounds more than the, popular
type of today will be demanded.
To do good, efficient and economical
service the horse needed on south
ern farms must weigh 1,200 to 1,400
pounds. This is larger than is thought
best by most farmers, but if futurea
needs,8 andl breeding requirements to
meet these future needs, are consid
eredl, this weight is still too light, for
the horse needed ten years fr-om now
will weigh 1,300 to 1,500 pounds.
The farm horse (10es most of his
work at a walking gait, and lie must
have the weight to pull sufficiently
large loadls to more than .make up for
any (defleiency ini speed as compared
with lighter animals. The greatest
need en souther-n farms Is for better
work. Texas, for instance, has usedl
more horses as a means of doing
more work, cultivating more acres,
but the real need for heavier farm
horses is to enable the farmer to do
better work. The best wvork cannot
be done with one-horse plows and
other- one-horse implemnents. Large

stock to supply its needs. Moreover
it must be largely bred from our na
tive mares. This will be a slow and
possibly the most expensive method
in the long run, but it is the only one
likely to prove practicable.
If we are right that the southern
farmer needs a horse weighing 1L200
to 1,500 pounds and that such an ani
mal must be bred up from our native
mares weighing 800 to 1,000 pounds
it is apparent that the sires *nust be
from the draft breeds. It then seems
to follow that the horse needed on
southern farms is a draft horse. Tha
southern farmer has much the same
attitude towards a draft horse that a
mad bull has toward a red flag, but
we offer to him the quieting thought
that a real draft horse, these times,
weighs 1,600 pounds or more and I
therefore the type of horse we have
suggested is really not a draft horse,
but a horse with sufficient drait blood
to give him the size required to do
good and economical farm work.
RAISE DEWBERRIES IN SOUTH
Plant Does Especially Well on Light.
Sandy Soil-Plan for Healthy
Canes Next Year.
Dewberries can be grown to advan
tage in almost all parts of the South,
especially on light, sandy land. Plan
tations are started by setting out the
rooted tips in rows five or six feet
apart. Fat lightwood stakes seven
feet long make good supports for the
vines, which are usually twined about
the stakes and tied at the top.
As the dewberry is very subject to
anthracnose, a disease which destroys
the canes, it is a good practice to cut
off and burn after the fruiting season,
all parts of the plant above ground.
A high-grade fertilizer should then
be applied and the vines cultivated
thoroughly during the rest of the sea
son to produce new, healthy canes for
next year's crop.
Dewberries, raspberries and straw
berries can be grown to advantage in
thle wide midd~les between lpean trens.
