ROAOSON THE FARM. 1ittle Work in Bad Plaoas Will Save Tiva and Money. The subject of good public roadi at- I racts aud deserves a good deal of at mtlon. It is asubject in which farm rs have a greater financial stake than c iey have realized. While the roads 1 3main as they are the farmers are con- I ;antly losing money by the delays and ilicuities of getting their produce to tarket. If extensive repairs and re )nstructions are attempted the taxes ri farm property will be considerably creased. If the money paid for put ng the roads in order is expeaded by ople who understand making roads, id who are honest as well as intaili- I !ent, it will be profltably invested. ( -)od roads cost but they also pay. We V ight to Lave them. Tro some extent the principles which c -e involved in making and maintain g highways als: applv to farm ro idi. no roads ire provided or if the roads hich are mi ide are not kept in order, L ie dilliculty and constqriently the ex- I< lese of moving loads to and from tihe d irn is cotsi Ieably increased.

While every farim of much size needs ie or more good roals over which tihe ,avier loads s'iould b' drawn there 'e places which are in more urgent b eed of attention than are the farims as whole.

In soie cas-s tihe hard L 11 comes at some points where ruts d v- been formed. lience, thiere is nlot ,rely a great inrease in the labor of E Le-ims, but there is alsoi a severe d an altoget ht-r untiecessary strain on the waggjins and carts. Many a T ieel has been spoiled an.d a consider le bill for ropairs has been incurred . meias o those ruts. The delay and L ,onvenience caused by -uch a break I wn are al ways vexatious, and the exe- w nse involved i: not, always met with od humor. If the tiiu, lost in wait g to have the necessary repairs to pl e wagon made were used putting the ad into good condition future losses d annoyances from this source might avoided aud occasion for the use of Cood deal of very bad language would prevented. To make first-class high ways over bich thousands of teams are to pass ery year requires a good deal ot sci tilic knowledge. Sch knowledge ough valuable, is (not indIisoensable making farml roadls. In order to' up it (ry anid hard the road should be little higher in the middle than it is the sides. Ruts should be prevented forming as solid a road bed as possi 3 andl making repairs as sooni as the ist dlepressioni itn the wvheel track is served. Whlere the road passe-s rough wet ground tile bed should be mewhat elevated and a trenchl should made at each side for curryinig off a e surplus water. Attention to these p Pints: and to a few minor matters iich will suggest themselves, will en- fl de the farmer to make on his own od, roads which will fully answer all ~ actical purposes.
