IIOW TO MARK A GOOD ROAD
The Material? to Re Used; Row to
Put Tlieiu Together, and How to
Use the Drag.
(By Dr. Joseph Hyde Pratt.)
The cut herewith Illustrates In de?
tail how a road drag is made, and
gives the bill of material needed for
After the bill of materials has been
assembled the work of construction
should be commenced by setting tho
two drag pieces upon their edges
thirty inches apart and in line with
each other, that is, one just behind
the other. Most drags are dodged s"?
that when they pull at an angle they
will exactly "track", but when the
drag is made in that manner it can
only be used to go one way on one
side of the road, while if made as (
described above, it can be used up |
and down, back and forth on either |
cut and fit the brace in tightly and
rail securely with 20-penny nails.
If the directions have been follow
-d carefully, it Is now ready to turn
upside down. When turned, hew the
back bevel on the drags with an axe,
as shown in the cut, leaving the front
edge of each drag one inch thick.
While it is still In this position, nail
securely the two steel plates so that
they will extend about 1-8 of one
Inch lower than the face of the drag.
This is done for the reason that the
steel will have a better chance to get
hold of the road and move material
than It would if it were placed flush.
When this has been done, turn the
drag right side up and it is ready
for the chain and to be put to use.
To put the chain on, pass it around
the tl and down through one hole,
up through one hole, and around
the second tie, as shown in the cut.
The stretcher hook may be hitched in
at any place desired to give the angle
for the d.ag that is desired. This
drag will work either end forward
simply by a change in the hitch. All
ST. MATTHEW'S MERCHANT
W. Ii. Felder Wounded at Charlotte
Ry Express Messenger.
Charlotte, N. C, Dec. 14.?Mr. W. j
L. Felder, a merchant of St. Mat?
thews, S. 0*i was shot at the South?
ern Railway station this morning at
2:50 o'clock. Charged with the
shooting J. Harry Jones, express
messenger on train No. 29, was plea?
ed under arrest. The shooting oc?
curred about twenty yards from the
express office in front of the express
car of train No. 29. In the car at
the time of the shooting were Jones
and John Kreeger, transfer clerk.
Kreeger stated to Policeman McCall
that the shot was fired by Jones, and
that they, as a blind, Jumped from
the car and ran down the track. The
statements were made to Mr. McCall
In the presence of Mr. Jones and met
no response from the latter, al?
though up to that time he bad pio
tested vehemently that he knew
nothing whatever of the shootlnjr.
Mr. Jones claimed to have been
working on his books In the front of
the car at the time the shooting oc?
Mr. Felder was shot through the
right arm, the bullet passing into his
side. He was perfectly conscious
and stated that the shot was fired
by the express meBesnger.
Mr. Felder stated that he was wait?
ing to take train No. 29 for Colum?
bia and that he was walking to pass
away the time until the train should
leave. He stated that when he got
In front of the express car some one
called out to "Get away from there,"
and almost Instantly fled. Mr. Feld?
er said that the shooting was with?
out any provocation P/l ' ftt, T?fr,
C- Ider walked to the oxiii- ?w oftV.?
and called ovt to Mr. u k. Uust,
aide, which Is often of very great ad?
vantage. After the pieces are set up
as described, a piece may b9 tacked
across the ends to hold them in place
while sawing and fitting in the tic
pieces. To fit In the tie pieces, lay
them on the drags eight inches from
the ends and mark the drags careful?
ly so that when the places are sawed
and chipped out for the tie*, they
will fit in tightly. It is a good plan
to make them so tight that they must
be driven In with a hammer, for then
the nails will hold much better. After
the two drags have thus been joined
and the two ties set in as shown in
the cut, nail them securely with five
40-penny nails at each place, as in?
dicated. These ties should, project
12 inches over in front and 6 inches
in the rear. A two-inch hole should
then be bored ir the front end of
the tie, as indicated. This hole is
for the chain to pass through for a
hitch. Next lay the, brace piece on
and mark carefully, as shown, then
that Is necessary Is to move the hook
on the chain. A little practice will
soon make any one expert in the use
of this drag.
To operate this drag, throw ?
board six feet long and ten or twelve
inches broad on the vies und rirace
about midway between the drags,
which is for the driver to stand on.
It will be interesting to notice the ef ?
feet of the driver changing his posi?
tion on the drag. Step one foot on
the front of the drag and it will cut
and carry material until the weight
Is removed; step back on the rear
drag and the front one will drop Its
load and the rear one catch it. Step
forward again and the latter drag
tvlll drop its load. In this way a
dttle practice on the part of thi
driver will enable him to become very
proficient in filling up holes If it is
desired to crown the road up, stand
with superior weight on the front
and a little to the dlt' h end of the
drag and let the drag have an angle
of about forty-five degrees.?Progres?
night watchman at the depot, that
he had been shot. Mr. Rust imme?
diately telephoned for a doctor and
the injured man was taken to the
Stonewall Hotel. It was about 3:15
before a physician arrived and Mr.
Felder was taken immediately to the
Mr. Felder, who is a furnitt ler
chant and a well-known citi.en of
St. Matthews, had been to High
Point to purchase some furniture
and was en route to hin Home. Jones
is a resident of Charlotte and his
run is between Charlotte and Colum?
Up to the time that Mr. Kreeger
and the party in the car with him
made the practical confession that
Mr. Jones had fired the shot and
they had Jumped out of the car and
ran down the track as a ollnd, Mr.
Jones had declared that he had no
Idea as to who did the shooting. Af?
ter Mr. Kreeger's statement he re?
fused to make any comment.
