THE REPAIR AND MAINTENANCE OE ROADS
If you look at the ordinary country
road after a shower you will see small
ipuddles along tho wheel ruts and
sometimes larger pools. This water
stays on the road surface because it
cannot drain away into the side ditch
es. If you look closely you will see
side ditches which have grown up with
hushes and weeds in many cases, and
whch are so far from tho traveled
part of the road that the rain water
does not drain into them. That part
of the roadway where the wagons
travel is called the traveled way. To
prevent water from standing on the
traveled way the road should he rais
ed in the center and should slope gent
ly into hroad shallow ditches. It is
then said to have a crown. If it is 10
feet from the center of the road to
the side ditch, the surface at the side
ditch should he at least 10 inches
lower than it is at the center where
the horses travel. The road then has
a 10-Inch crown. The rain that falls
on a road properly crowned will run
quickly to the side and not soak into
the surface or form pools. The side
ditches for suface water should run
parallel to the right of way, and
should be oven at every low point so
that the water can run out of thorn
Into neighboring brooks and streams.
If the ditches merely collect the wa
ter from tho road surface and it can
not run away, large pools will be
formed along the roadside, which will
gradually soak into the soil beneath
the road and make it so soft that the
wheels of wagons will cut through the
road surface and soon destroy it.
Smetimes water runs fiom land
along the road into the road and forms
a little Stream down the wheel tracks
or In the middle where the horses
travel. When driveways into farm
yards are built across the Bide ditch
es they frequently form channels for
water from the farm yard to run into
the road. The pipes under driveways
become filled with leaves of rubbish
and the water can no longer run away.
If the driveways that, stop the ditch
water were rebuilt so that no pipes
were necessary and tho ditch could be
left open, much trouble from surface
water would be stopped.
Sometimes a road runs across low
ground or through a swamp where the
road can not be drained by side ditch
es alone. If the road were built high
er like a railroad embankment across
such low land and made with a crown,
it would be dry and hard. Sometimes
a road passes through what is called
a cut. This is a place where the
earth has been dug out. so that the
road cas go over a hill without being
too steep. The water which always
Hows quietly under the ground on hill
sides is known as ground water. In
road cuts such water sometimes manes
the road very muddy, and tin; road
then needs what road builders call
underdrainage. A good kind of under
drainage is a trench to go along un
der the side drain and about 3 feet

deep and a foot and a half wide. In
this trench a pipe is laid near the
bottom and covered with loose stones
no bigger than an egg. When the
trench is completely tilled with loose

hill through the pipe.
To keep a road smooth and crowned
the best method is to drag it witlt a
road drag. A road drag is made easi
ly witlt two halves of a log which lias
been split. The log should be about
(; or S incites In thickness and about
Ii or S feet long. The two halves of
the log are set :> feet apart with the
smooth faces forward and upright.
They are then fastened together with
braces set in holes bored through the
log. A pair of horses may be used to
drag the road and are hitched to a
chain fastened to the front half of
the log. The road drag should move
forward so that it slants across the
road in such a way that a small
amount of earth will slide past the
smooth face of the log toward the
center of the road thus forming the
crown. Tho edges of the logs will
smooth out the ruts. The best way
to drag is to begin at the side ditch
and go up one side of the road, and
then down the other. In the next trip
the drag should be started a little
nearer the center and the last trip
over the road the drag may work close
to the center Itself. Small ridges of
earth will be thrown in the horse track
and smeared by the round side of the
log smoothly over the road. The
smearing of tho earth by the drag is
called "puddling" and it (ends to
make the surface of tho road smooth
and watertight titter the sun comes
out. The road is always dragged al
ter it lias rained and not when it is
dry. A good, strong pair of horses
with a well-built drag can drag abut
3 or I miles of road in a day, and it
is tho best way to maintain good roads
In every county some fanner along
each 'I milt's of road should own a
drag and drag the road when it rains,
and he would always find the road is
good condition when he goes to mar
