I don't suppose that 1 differ from the

pleasanter for Unlit and pleasure trav

The people the country over have
been very generous to themselves In
assuming such a vast amount of bond

obtaining good roads.
Naturally the general idea Is that the

Neither do I believe the public will

will the roads Ik? kept up? Or will
they dually fade away into the same
old rough, muddy condition we have
been used to for so many years?
1 wish to suggest a method that will
meet the emergency, and if public
opinion favors It we can have ge<?d
roads at all seasons of the year, and
the cost of upkeep will be so liuht
as to Im> almost nominal. We should
give attention not to the roadbed It
self, but to the vehicles that travel It.
for In that direction we will liud the
remedy against bad roads.
Take the ordinary farm or lumber
wagon, In constant dally use every
where for hauling loads, heavy and
light. It weighs approximately l.(HK)
pounds, or half a ton. The wagon will
convey a ton and perhaps at times
more thnn that; but, as we are dealing
only iu general terms, say the wagon
with a full load will weigh one and a
half tons and It travels on wheels
with a tire tread of two and one-half
Inches. When we come to think of
the number of these farm wagons,
more or less loaded, passing and re
passing continually over the public
highways with a tire tread of only
two and one half Inches and see their
effect upon the surface when the
ground Is softened from frequent rains
It seems as though better machinery
