Csnployed wllh Considerable Saoetts bjr California and Several Other The legislature and people of Cali fornia have not been idle in the work for good roads nor blind to the needs of the state in this respect. Up toa few years ago some of the convicts had been supported in comparative idleness at the expense of the state, while oth ers had been utilized in direct compe tition with free labor. In 1895 the leg islature decided at the suggestion of Gen. Roy Stone to utilize convict labor in preparting road materials. A bill was passed providing for a highway commission and for the construction of a rock-crushing plant on one of the state prison grounds. Since that time the convicts have been turning upward ~ m^^^^*\\f***^BAvif AN OBJECT LESSON ROAD. of 100,000 tons of crushed trap rock an nually. Much of this material has been given, to the counties as the state's con tribution toward the improvement ol the leading- thoroughfares. North Carolina, Delaware, lowa, New York, Tennessee and other states also ihave laws providing for the use of con vict labor in improving highways. North Carolina has made great prog ress and has built more miles of roadi under this system #.an any other state. Thus one might, if space permitted, go through the whole list of states and And evidences of great progress in road improvement. Gov. Mount, of In diana, for instance, says that his com monwealth is provided with 58,000 miles of graded, graveled and piked highway*, over 8,000 miles of which are comparable with the best roads ot France. The public is now more thor oughly aroused to the importance ol the movement for better roads than ever before, and more roads and better roads have been built in the United States in 1699 than in any previous yeai in its history. The agitation which has become sc universal will surely result in a well de fined public sentiment that will soon overcome all obstacles. With the new century the good roads movement i. likely to receive valuable aid from the owners of horseless vehicles already not, uncommon on our thoroughfares. The aid of these new allies added tc that of the farmer with his pecuniary interest in the question, to say nothing of tie army of wheelmen already enlist ed in the cause, promises well for a rap- Id spread of the movement throughout the country.—Cincinnati Commercial Tribune. ABANDONED FARMS. They Are a Sad Commentary on the larnornnce or Ctrclesißeu of Their Owners. Every once in awhile we notice re ports of what certain men hare done on so-called abandoned farms. Often the returns from the land are quite phenomenal. The explanation is that tome man with both brains and money has taken hold and put into practice business methods. Had these been put into operation from the first there would have been no abandoned farms. Men that have investigated the condi tions in localities where such lands have been thrown out of cultivation have found that the lands had become run down through constant cropping Without putting back the manure necessary to keep up the fertility What is true of the east is equally true of the west, and unless the meth ods on some of our farms change the time is coming when the farms will cease to give a living. There are two unfortunate classes of men that try to run farms; those that have money and no brains for agricultural enterprises, and those that have brains and no money. The latter class is, however, of the two the more likely to succeed. In these days of agricultural colleges, experiment stations and abundant op portunities there is no reason why the man that has money cannot obtain the necessary brain development to help make a success of farming.— Farmers' Review. Sunday In the Country. I am always very well pleased with a country Sunday, and think if keeping holy the seventh day were only a hu man institution, it would be the best method that could have been thought of for the polishing and civilizing of mankind. It is certain the country people would soon degenerate into a kind of savages and barbarians were there not such frequent returns of ai stated time, in which the whole village meet together with their best faces, and in their cleanliest habits to con verse with one another, upon indiffer ent subjects, hear their duties ex plained to tbem and join together in adoration of the Supreme Being.—Jos eph Addison.

White talked not long ago to the Good Roads association of southern California about some experiments made by him. at Chino. For tie last two years « good deal has been done in his part of the country with oil on country roads, the prime object being (as on railroad beds) the suppression of dust. This wa* the only thing sought when. Chino contracted for it* first lot of oiled roads, some 25 or 30 miles in length. But. it was soon dis covered that oil might be made to build up a surface that would resist the wear of travel, and that is the great aim of the later practice there. Mr. White said that the roads were originally con structed by a contractor, who guaran teed "a dustHess road" from May till December. During the first season tht contractor sprinkled them three times Subsequently, the town undertook to care for the roads itself, and it wai then found that one application of oil would do more good than the con tractor's three. Oil sprinkled directly on a sandy oi alluvial road will do little good, Mr. White says. It should .be surfaced with a, firmer material before the oil is ap plied. Sand, properly covered, makes a wonderfully firm bed. When Mr. White was put in charge of the roads of Chino, he found a section of sand half a mile long- over which a clayey gravel had been hauled from a distance. The stuff had once been used for mak ing bricks. Only a few inches of it had been spread over the sand. Yet it made a fine road for dry weather When wet, holes would work through in a short time. But by oiling the road was greatly improved. The gravel employed is peculiar to southern Cali fornia, but Mr. White is confident that any disintegrated granite, such as may be found in other states, would work equally well. In making new roads, he first graded the foundation and then put on a layer of this gravel seven inches thick in the middle and six at the edges. Afterward he made it nine inches thick in the middle and eight on the sides. The foundation was rolled hard and kept wet just ahead of the gravel. The lat ter was also thoroughly soaked when spread. A heavy orchard cultivator was run through' it, while the water was being poured on. Harrow and roller were used to shape the road up, and finally it was given a chance to dry. When the road had dried out to a depth of fully two inches, it was care fully swept and thfe oil put on. The first application should be liberal. On a road 18 feet wide Mr. White puts from 100 to 150 barrels for each mile. Before the oil is applied, it is heated to a tem perature of 800 degrees or over. LABOR-SAVING HINT.

Experiments at the department of agriculture show that no sand is so poor and sterile that something will 1 not grow upon it, and in many cases it has been of great benefit to plant sand binding species of grass. Its effect has been not .only to produce something, but to prevent blowing and drifting of the soil, which in some places works great havoc, almost equaling snow. The department has introduced a large number of foreign sand-binding species which are being tried in our various climates.—Farmers' Voice. Money In Sweet Potatoes. Sweet potatoes give fair profits when grown under careful supervision and excellent cultivation. William Colwell, of Hammandton, X. J., using the or dinary Nansemond variety, grew many hills of sweet potatoes this season which contained from 10 to IS pounds per hill. This would be about 800 bush els per acre, should such a field be uni form im yield. While the crop showed such excellence only in some of the hills, yet the yields show what is pos sible with the sweet potato with judi cious cultivation. Whale Oil Soap Recipe. Whale oil soap may be purchased ready made. To make it, use 3% pounds of concentrated lye, ly, gallons water, one gallon fish oil. Dissolve the lye in the water. When boil ing-add the fish oil and continue at boiling heat for two hours. One-half pound to the gallon of water is recommended for plant lice, provided each separate in dividual is hit by the spray. Two pounds to the gallon may be put on tree truaksand limbs with a whitewash brush in winter, bat fruit buds must *o» be touched. _.______. PRINTING PRESS FOR SALE.

Wonderful Collection and Graad Dl.plnv of Bier trie Lighting:. It is tbe plan of tiie management to make the Pan-American Exposition at Buffalo next year the greatest electric al Exposition ever held. In view of the wonderfi.l advance in the-electrical science since the World's fair there will probably uot be a single duplication of an exhibit seen at Chicago iv 1893. Nearly everything in the electrical line then exhibited has been superseded In the market by new machinery and ap pliances constructed upon a better understanding of the wonderful force. The discovery of the Roentgen rays, the Invention of wireless telegraphy and the development of the electromo- - taJiai^alSS>tls»l TBE MINKS BUILDING. bile are among the well known new and useful applications of electricity unknown at the time of tbe Columbian Exposition. Electricity Is to be ex tensively used In making attractive displays at night For this purpose a steel tower 375 feet high bas been planned whleb will face tbe Court of the Fountains. Upon this great tower and In this broad and beautiful court there will be seen at night fantastic and beautiful displays in electrical Illumination. More than 200,000 elec tric lamps are to be used for this pur pose, lt being tbe Intention of elec tricians to have all the large buildings surrounding tbis court outlined with a fringe of brilliant electric lamps. These wonderful electrical displays are made possible by the nearness of Nia gara Falls, from which nearly all the power used for the Exposition will be drawn. WEST VIRGINIA ALERT. Go-armor Will Ursre Appropriation to Have State Represented. Governor Atkinson of West Virginia announces tbat be will embody in bis next message to the legislature a rec ommendation for an appropriation to pay the expenses of the state commis sion having In charge the state ex hibit for the Pan-American Exposition. West Virginia Is one of the many states that are inviting capital and labor to come In and help develop their natural resources. With ber 15,000 square miles of coal lands, ber thou sands of acres of hard wood forests, her wonderful stores of petroleum, ber Iron ore deposits and her great acre age of lands suitable for farming, stock raising and wool growing, she has much to offer In the way of ex hibits and much to gain by bringing her resources properly before the world. It Is expected that an exhibit will be made showing by maps and specimens, statistics and information of a general character what a new comer to the state may be able to do in tbe way of advancing the fortunes of himself and those who depend upon him. The millions of visitors to Buf falo next year will be iuterested in knowing what the possibilities are ia all parts of the western hemisphere. The West Virginia commission Is com posed of Stuart W. Walker of Martins burg, president; J. C. Morrison of Charleston, secretary; E. B. Handle of Wheeling, treasurer; James M. Por ter, Jr., of New Cumberland and E. E. Smith of Parkersburg. GUARDING AGAINST FIRE. Every Precaution to Be Taken at tbe Pan-American Exposition. There are two fire houses upon the grounds of the Pan-American Exposi tion at Buffalo. N. V.. which are fully equipped with the apparatus and men necessary to fight any outbreak of fire upon the grounds. Tn addition to this there are chemical fire extinguishers lv all of the build ings. These are of the same type used at the World's fair at Chicago and are attached to the wall on the interior of the building. A cog on tbe bearing of the reel releases a valve which uirns on the water In case of fire. It is only necessary to unreel the hose and thus turn on a stream which can be di rected upon tbe blaze without a mo meat's delay. In tbis way every pre caution Is to be taken to prevent the occurrence of auy fire and consequent destruction of valuable property. Excursions to the Pan-American. All over tbe country tbe people are planning to make excursious next sum mer to tbe Pnn-Americnn Exposition. Clubs are being organized whose mem bers are saving money for the trip in this way. Pan-American study clubs are also beiug organized. Some large business firms are planning to give ex cursions to their employees, and in many manufactories tbe employees are organizing to go in a body to the Ex position. In the large shoe manufac turing concern of Hanan & Sons of Brooklyn the employees, who have or ganised themselves into an association called the Mutual Aid society. liuve decided on a live days' excursion to the Pan-American and Niagara Kails and bave engaged a special vestibuled train for tbe purpose. The trip will be made during Independence week, •nd lt Is expected tbat at least 1,000 persons will participate in the jour ney. Firemen to Attend In a Body.
