WORKING THE ROADS.
Farmers Can Well ACorO to Devote The
Time to Thla Task.
Much, has been said und w ritten about
country roads ami the proper way to
construct them to insure g.xxl ones the
year round. But much of it applies only
where gravel or crushed stone can be
obtained with which to make a road
bed unaffected by rains and standing
water. In many sections of the coun?
try gravel can be had by hauling it
from creek and river beds, and where it
can bo so obtained or purchased at a
low figure the best possible use of time
and money is in securing and spread?
ing this upon a read beil previously
graded into the proper form. If the
gravel is dumped upon a perfectly flat
surface it becomes mixed with the soil
during wet weather and soon is lost.
The first thing to be done is to grade
the road. The graveling or macadamiz?
ing can then be done at leisure. Tin
upper illustration shows the best form
of the road. The dirt from the ditches
at the sides is carried to the middle
and left in a rounded form, highest in
the center. Care must be taken to make
the sides slope ail the way from the
center to the bottom of the ditches,
or the water will stand in the .sags and
percolate into the roadway, making it
soft and muddy. Make good outlets fr-r
these ditches to carry the water off and
keep the road dry, and also that they
may serve for outlets for tile and for all
other farm drains.
Keep the surface of the road smooth
and free from sods, for those traveling
will not make martyrs of themselves
and bump over the rough places to
wear them down IT the sides are smooth.
?r -- THE NEW AND THE OLD WAY.
Leave the sods at one side. They will
decay in a year or I wo. A large amounl
of road work can be dene in a short
time with comfort to man and beast,
by using o:-o of the improved road
grade?. Four men with their teams
make a good force; One man and team
lor the plow, the others for the grader.
It will pay any town handsomely .o
invest in the most Improved machinery
for read work. When grading the road,
be careful not to get the grade too
vide. Make it just wide eijon:'!i ?;r
teams to pass. It will flatten out w ith
use and wet weather.
A great aid in keeping the road dry
is a row of tiles laid on either side at
the outer edges of the grade. These
should not be laid too deep, for the
surface will become packed iothat the
water will not readily soak through.
But if the grade is the proper form the
water wall run off the surface so rapid?
ly that comparatively little will soak
in; and as the tile and laying them add
largely to the cost of the road they
may usually be dispensed with. All
doubtless realize the tru thru! ticss of the
lower illustration and the difficulty of
getting about over such highways, the
Joss of time and money, the wear and
tear of horses, harnesses and wagons
resulting from attempts to move loads
at the very season when farmers have
the most time to do such work. In the
summer when the farmers arc bus>y
with their crop?, the reads are usually
dry and any kind is good enough. The
low price for which farm lands sell is
due in a large measure to the poor high?
ways. With bettor -reads the value at
the lands rapidly increases. Examples
of this can be found in every county,
Farms located along good, hard roads
are in constant demand at prices far in
excess of those situated at a distance
?from such roads. Wherever oiher w orl<
will permit, farmers can well afford to
give a few days' work on the reads in?
stead of feeling it a hardship to have tc
work the time required by law. Work
them thoroughly, each neighborhood
for itself. The labor nud time spent
will return 100 foid in the i:.crca.<c:l
value of property and in the ease ami
comfort of traveling. ? Farm ant!
