G00D ROADS NOTES, o
A Typical Case.
What is to be done under conditions
that obtain in many parts of the coun
try? is the question raised by a mem
ber of the League of American Wheel
men. He says:
"We have in this township assessed
roughly at $350,000 some sixty miles
of road. We cannot spend $10,000,
$1000 or even $500 per mile on these
roads. There is not enough money
in the township, all told, to do it, and
the law linits the bonded indebted
ness. To select ai few miles of tlIe
principal highway is not just to the
poor feliow who helps pay for it and
must drive five or ten miles to reaeh it.
"Much better-work might be done
than we arcfoing, but it remains
that many mr.esmust be attentled to
with few dolln."s. What most is need
ed is careful consideration of existing
conditions-how :best to spend $1200
or $1500 o./'ity miles of road, re
ser ' $200 or $300 of that for the
winter's snows. Teach us serviceable
lessons for communities of this sort;
and do not expect asphalt, macadam
or steel until tha fellows froi town
help to build them (and the.y haven't
built their own yet).
"No wonder the rustic kicks if the
road is to cost more than the entire
value of all the farms through which
it passes. He appreciates good roads,
but must remember his slim pocket
book. He laughs a little, too, at the
big saving heavier loads would make
for him. Nine out of ten of him at
that time of year have little to do for
self or team f&nd are not crowded with
what they have to market. He would
rather make two trips than one, as he
and the horses both need the exer=
The tendency in such cases as this
is to underestimate the beneficial ef
fects of hard roads and to assume that
they are of value only during the win
ter. They are of enormous value then,
and of equally great value in summer
and 'the busy seasons, when the possi
bility of hauling big loads is money
in the pocket.
In the past, the farmer has been left
too much to his own resources in the
care of the highways. 'w, however,

as the proper means iF-p6oting the
good work, and the States are slowly
but surely falling into line in adopting
it. Until it is generally in force, there
may be time for much good work to
be done, and the first steps toward
real improvement can be taken by se
curing careful grading, thorough drain
age and the adoption of wide tires.
In this connection the experiences
of two southern counties is right to the
point. In one, the loads average 2466
pounds and the tax is ten cents a hun

800 pounds and tho tax twenty cents a

the road tax one-half, and greatly im

kept in such good condition that three*
times as much can be hauled as on.

As long as present conditions ob-1

it will be when the people realize theI
importance to the community of hay

perhaps, from one to ten thousand
dollars a mile, but present roads can<
be vastly bettered by giving them con-i

iuig and drainage. This work his

There are sixty miles of road, and
an expenditure of $2500 per mile on
themi wonid create an indebtedness
of $150,000. Suppose this amount
was borrowed on bonds payable in
from one to fifteen years at four per
cent. By paymng the annual interest
and six per cent. on the principal, the
whole aiaunt conld be paid in twelve
years and the roads kept in ordier,
itota greater anniuai expenditure
than the $16,000 now required for re

three-quarters of one per cent. Now,,
taking the average assessment of the
taxpayer to be $1000, his proportion
of the entIre debt would be S7.50. and,
his assessment for each year for this
purpose wotild be seventy-five cents."
Figure down this way, there seems
nothing wanting to securing better
highways but the will to make the'
An Incotmi,iete E.timate.
In the following estimate of the
cost of laing stone roads some in=
portant items have been omitted;
The Indiana Farmer says that "the
cost of brok: n stone for building
roads is not so great as many suppose.
It can be blight at the crushers for
forty cents per solid yard, and the
railroad will freight it forty miles or
less, at about fifty cents per cnbia
yard, making a total of ninety cents;
but suppose we call it $1. Then if the
road-bed is nine feet wide and the
stone is piled on a foot deep; a cubic
yard will cover three feet linear at a
cost of $1, niaking one mile (1760
yards) cost as many dollars. But as
only .abouit nina inches are necessary,
one-fourth of this amount, or $140,
should be deducted, making the ex
act amount only $1320, which is cheap
enough for a first-class road, the ma
terial for which must be brought forty
miles by rail."
Substantial roads can be built at a
thickness of nine inches, but the
stone'used is by no means the only
item of expense. The labor of hand
ling, placing and rolling it must be
considered and, more important still,
careful grading and thorough drain
age niust be secured- Hard roads can
be built much more cheaply than
formerly, but a "first-class" one can
uot yet be laid at such low figures.
Narrow Versus Wide Wagon Tires.
Scientific experiments extending
over two years have been made under
the auspices of the Studebaker Broth
ers, the widely-known wagon builders,
to determine the relative qualities of
wide and narrow-wheel tires. The
The results are too extensive to give
in full. Every kind of road was used
to test the question. It was found
that on macadam roads the narrow
tires were far inferior to the wide, and
they required much greater effort to
lraw a given load. In a deeply-rutted
>lay road, the narrow tires running in
the ruts and the wide tires on top, the
aarrow tires were far more efficient.
rhis was also the case with wet mud.

The Very Strange Story of an O'Donne

In the early part of the century
three brotaers named O'Donnell left

where they all had extraordinary- car
S uers one died in 18G7 after he had

but nothing in the lIves of the others

In 1832 there was war in Spain re

I O'Donnell fell a prisoner to General
- Zumalacarrequy, a leader of the Car

d upon this as almost a piece of good
luck, for the Carlist leader was an old
.schoolmate of his. The two friends
celebrated this meeting after a separa

as they ate supper together and drank
toasts to old times, ZumnalacarrequIy

ranswered the Carlist envoy by saying:
i"I will show you how I treat rebels,'
gand forthwith he had all his Carlsi
