CAUSE OF MUDDY HIGHWAYS
Water Which Flows From Fields to
Roads is Expensive to Public
Forbidden by Statute.
Muddy roads due to water which
flows over the surface of land' along
a highway Into the side ditches are
expensive to the public. No railroad
will tolerate a wet roadbed longer
than Is necessary to carry out the
drainage work to dry the earth. But
persons whose conveilence depends in
no small measure on the roads passing
by their property rarely do anything
to check the Injury they are working
to themselves and their neighbors in
the manner mentioned.
The Colorado highway commission
has called attention to a statute which
makes it a misdemeanor in that state
to allow water to flow on a road and
has issued the following notice on the
subject: "From the fields along a high
way the waste or excess water is al
lowed to run directly to the road
ditch, and if, as is often the case, the
road ditch is obstructed, this water
gets over the road, making a muddy
road, which under the traflic soon be
comes impassable. This can be pre
vented by running a ditch, (a single
furrow may answer,) along the fence
line and discharging the water into a
road culvert at a point where it will
drain away. This coiltion also em
phasizes the necessity of keeping all
the road culverts open and ready to
FvANY GOOD ROADS SURFACED
Massachusetts Leads With Percentage
of 47.6-Oklahoma Brings Up
in the Rear.
Massachusetts has the greatest per

Then come Indiana with 42.5 per cent,
New Jersey with 40.5, Ohio with 30.5,
Rhode Island with 84.5, Kentucky with
32.2, New York with 22.7, Connecticut
with 23.2 and California with 20.2. In

use of gravel, and it is misleading to

of surfacing and are not restricted to
what are called permanent pavements.

WATER CARRIED TO DITCHES
This Can Be Done by Giving Proper
Crown or Cross Slope to Road
WVater falling on the road should be
carried to the side ditches by giving
a proper crown or cross slope to the
roadl. Make your road to shed water.
The slope should vary with different
soils. For a loamy soil a crowvn of
about one inch per foot Is considered
prop~er; on a clay soil tan inch andl a
halt to two inches. The side slopes of
dItches should be much greater. The
longItudinal slope or grade will also
somewhat determine the crowvn. On
a steep) grade it is necessary to give
a greater crown to keep the wvater
from running dowvn the traveled road
