MOST USEFUL ROCKS VALUE OF CHERTS AND NOVACU LITES AS ROAD MATERIALS. Do Not Need Crushiug--Are Better Adapt to Light Traffic Than Harder and Tougher Rock--How to Use The.al In Road Work. Cherts and novaculites are among the most useful and valuable of ma terials for road construction, says Maurice 0. Eldridge in the Good Roads Magazine. Aside from the fact that. most of them cement readily and wear well, they can frequently be used with out being first crushed and separated, a process so essential to a successful road If traps, granites or other hard rocks are used. Assuming that it costs 25 cents per cubic yard to crush the rock for a road one mile in length, fifteen feet wide and surfaced to a depth of six inches (consolidated), the total cost for this item alone would be about $550. By the use of a material which does not require crushing a con siderable saving can therefore be ef fected when many miles of road are to be built. Cherts and novaculites are both ulliceous rocks and are very similar In BtU.. BPRIaDINIt (HEI'RT MA'IIRI.\T uN A OAl)D. appearance. Tllhe two rocks differ ma terially in their origin. Cherits occur usually in chalk and limestoue forma tions and are generally believed to be formed by a chemical precipitation from sea water. Novaculltes, on the other hand, are thought to be true sed Imentary rocks, having been formed by deposits of very fine material--silt and sand-in sea water and subsequently solidified. The useful qualities of no vaculltes as oilstones for sharpening fine tools are well known and are due to the hardness and smoothness of this rock. In order that a road may bind well, its surface must be composed of fine particles of suitable rock which form the bond. If these particles are blown or washed away they must be replaced, or the bond will be broken and the road will ravel. When roads are sur faced with limestone or chert a com paratively light traffice can be depend ed upon to supply enough binder to keep the road from raveling. For this reason these materials are better adapt ed to light traffic than harder and tougher rocks. When bank cherts are first spread upon the road they are sometimes soft and brittle and apparently almost use less as a road material, but when the materials are exposed to the action of traffic and the elements the surface soon becomes a solid, compact mass. Cherts and novaculltes are invariably found in sedimentary formations. The material is also found sometimes com pletely covering the ground, sometimes in the beds of streams and narrow val leys, where it has been deposited by the action of the water, and again in banks and pockets on hill and moun tain sides. Cherts are usually found in nodular masses, but, like novacu lites, may occur in angular fragments, varying in size from about one to six inches. Where these materials are found in banks or the beds of streams they are commonly called gravel. Creek gravel, formed from chert or novacullte, is usually of uniform size and compara tively clean, while the bank gravel often contains earthy matter and tine particles of the same material. The creek gravel usually Wears the best, but it does not bind so readily or form as smooth a surface as the bank de posits. Where both creek and bank gravel is available good results can be obtained by using the former for foundation and the latter for wearing or binder course. The writer used this method at Florence, Ala., with marked success. SWhere the material is plentiful and where a good quality of bank gravel is available for a binder It Is unneces sary to go to the trouble and expense of cutting out a subgrade or to pre pare earth shoulders, as is done for regular macadam. If the shoulders are dispensed with, however, it Is ab solutely 'essential that the surface course contain a sufficient quantity of good binding material; otherwise the bond will soon be broken, the material. will spread, and much of It will even tually be forced or washed into the side ditches. The roadbed shotild of course be shaped with a road machine before the material Is placed and given a slight crown of from three-eighths to one-half of an inch to the foot from the center to the sides. The founds tion should then be rolled and the mate rial for the first course spread in two layers and rolled and sprinkled in the usual manner. The spreading of the material can be accomplished by the use of a road machine, provided the gravel is not too large. The total depth of material may vary from four to nine inches at the center,, as soil and traleic may require, and gradual ly diminish in thickness to what Is Scommonly called a "feather edge" at the sides. It the most approved meth od Is followed, shoulders should be pro. tided to hold the material in place. The matetlal should then ho idread to a uiniform depth from the center to rides. Trying to Please Thomas. "Yes," said the expert in heraldry, "I have succeeded in fixing up a splen did pedigree for your husband." "I'm so glad," replied Mrs. Gottalotte. "It will be such a relief to the girls. How have you figured it out?" "Well, I take him back through sev eral generations to the Virginia cava liers *and claim for him direct de scent from Geoffrey Gottalotte, a poet of the sixteenth century." "What? A poet? Thomas will nev er stand for that. Why, he thinks poets are of no more use in the world than humming birds. You must re member that my husband is a business man through and through. Nothing ap peals to him that ain't practical. Can't you find son.body else Instead of the poet?" "Oh, very well! It is easy. This Geoffrey Gottalotte had a cousin, Jet ferson Gottalotte, who was a swine herd at firat and later the proprietor of the largest butcher shop in his na tive country. It will be easy to switch him In as ybur husband's ancestor." "Ah, that will please Thomas. But who were these cavaliers? Did they amount to much In the money making line?"-Brooklyn Earle.

Probably the most curious shaving competition which ever took place was that 'conducted at a local hall in the north' of London a number of years ago. The skill of a certain barber having been disputed, he offered to shave ten men with ten penknives in quicker time than any other tonsorial artist could perform the same feat with razors. The challenge was taken up, and on the night of the contest ten men, each with a three days' growth of beard, were arranged down either side of the platform. Assistants lath ered each man in turn, while the bar bers performed the shaving operations. The man with the penknife proved so dexterous that he finished his ten men, riMth but three cuts among them, in six and a half minutes, the other man not only taking half a minute longer, but also cutting five of his victims.-Lon. don Telerranh. His Cute Scheme. "Of course," said Newllwed, "when ever my wife worries herself it worries me." "My wife never worries now," said Elders. "You're lucky." "No, merely foxy. I just let her see that when she worried herself it didn't worry me at all, and so she stopped it." -Catholie S tandard and Times.
