HARRIS BURG TELEGRAPH PATROL SYSTEM FOR ROAD REPAIRS [Continued From First Page.] economy of the new system will be appreciated. Those patrol men will be dtreotly under the County Superintendents. They will be required to make out a dally report of the number of hours they work and these reports will be collected by the County Superintend ents, who will make out payrolls for the patrol men. As the County Sup erintendents have been supplied with light roadsters, It will be possible for them to keep In close touch with theee patrol men on the State Highways and to ascertain whether or not the work is being done properly. Each patrol man will be supplied with tools and equipment necessary for his work and each one will hav« a small red flag which he will be re quired to place In a conspicuous posi tion on the road when, for any reason, he Is required to leave the roadside during working hours. Hence, either the presence of the patrol man at work or of his flag. Indicating temporary absence, will be noticeable during the working hours. Care In Selections Great care is being exercised In the selecting of these patrol men and State Highway Commissioner Cun ningham Is determined to have none bat sober, honest and Industrious men lin these responsible positions. If it Is found that the patrol men are neglecting their work, Instant dis missal will follow. System of Work The manner in which the care takers will work is as follows: Along the side of the highway at frequent Intervals will be placed small piles of stone chips and gravel, which will be used In patching holes as they are found In the roadway. Barrels, or drums, of bituminous material, con taining approximately 4 6 gallons each, will be placed at intervals of from one-fourth to one-third of a mile along the roadside. When the care taker finds a spot in the road which shows signs of wear, he will place the stones and bituminous material on It, tamping It down carefully and mak ing the surface of the road smooth and even. The caretaker also will look after the edges of. the road and will keep the bcrms clear of weeds and grass and will protect the shoulders ot the road to prevent water from getting underneath. Each patrol man will be supplied with the followin? outfit: A small combination melting and pour ing pot on wheels, a hand-pouring pot, an asphalt tamper, a wheel-barrow, a push brush, a pick, a short-handled and a long-handled shovel; a scythe, a snathe, a mattock, a rake, and a brush hoc^k. As these patrol men will be under the constant watch of the County Sup erintendent, it will be necessary for them to devote their entire time and attention to the territory to which, they are assigned. It Is the intention, ultimately, that no man shall have more than six miles of roadway to patrol and this only in sections where the character of the road is such that he can cover it easily and conveniently in a day. In mountainous districts, and in places where peculiar forma tions make the care of the road more onerous, the patrol distance will be diminished. List of Duties The following list of the general duties of the patrol men has been prepared by the State Highway De partment and each man as he is en gaged will be furnished with a copy of it and will have his duties explained to him In detail: Keep drains and ditches open at ail times. Special attention must be given to defects In planking and condition of bridge floors. Repair all defects in the surface of the road, maintaining same In a true and even condition. Repair and whitewash guard rails. Provide protection and red lights in case of flood washouts, or other emergency conditions. Remove brush from along the Bides of the road, giving special attention to this condition at curves, approaches to railroad crossings, bridges, cross roads, etc. Keep the berms or shoulders of the road trimmed up, in that the surface water may be discharged freely from the road surface to the side ditches. Remove all advertising signs from within the legal limits of the high way. Paint and keep in tlrst-class con dition all Department Direction and "Warning Signs. Inspect culverts, head-walls, crib bing. retaining walls, etc., and report defects immediately to the Superin tendent. Whitewash large rocks and the bases of poles on narrow sections of highway and at sharp curves, (Spring and Fall); poles to be whitewashed to a height of six feet above ground. All equipment, tools, and material placed in the charge of each caretaker must be accounted for by him at all | times, and tools and equipment kept In thorough repair. Economic and workmanlike results will be the most Important factor recognized by the Department. Attention must he given to the en tire section allotted to the carfltaker, and work not confined to special and convenient portions. Daily Report Postal Card must be mailed every evening to the Super intendent. When working on the road. Care taker must have flag, which will be provided, displayed at all times near where work Is being performed. When conditions require additional help, team hire, or material of any character, permission must be first se cured from the Superintendent. All additional help and team hire must be carried on Foreman's Daily Report Form, together with regular pay roll form, etc. All bills for material, etc., In amounts less than SIO.OO must be cov ered by Superintendent's Purchase Order; large amounts by requisition of | Superintendent and Department Pur chase Order. Caretakers are to be paid an hourly rate, and full value in service will be exacted for every .dollar expended. Caretakers must he courteous and considerate of the interests of the public at all times, and conduct them selves In a manner becoming repre sentatives of the Commonwealth. Sobriety, honesty. Industry, good character, and ability are the essen tials required, and a falling In any of these will be met by dismissal. The Patrol System for the mainten ance of highways is new in Pennsyl vania. but has been tried with great success in other States. Chief En gineer Uhler is an enthusiastic be liever in this method. When he was Maintenance Engineer In the Mary land State Highway Department— prior to his employment by the city of Philadelphia as Assistant Engineer of Highways—Mr. Uhler inaugurated the Patrol System, and as a rsult, the excellent condition of the Maryland highways has been kept up and is a source of comment to all tourists traveling in that State.

GENUINE GASTORIA ALWAYS 11;f *SSS£~*- _ / ?Be a rs the Signature of - In Use For Over 30 Years eL cop, orw„ P „ Tho Kind Y< »» Have Always Bought PACKARD "TWIN SIX" DUE HERE One of the greatest sensations ever produced In the automobile industry re sulted from the announcement by the Packard Motor Car Company that they would produce a "Twin Six" model ex clusively for the coming season. One of the principal reasons why the Packard "Twin Six" has obtained 1 so much public notice since its first an nouncement is because of the unusual ability provided by Its exceedingly simple twelve-cylinder motor. This motor comprises two twin sets of six cylinders each, set at an angle of sixty degrees. By reason of this construc tion and by further reason of the ex ceedingly light weight and recipro cating parts an unprecedented smooth ness of action is obtained while at the same time the engine is shorter and lighter and results In noticeable gas olene and oil economy. , The total weight of all the recipro cating parts, is just one-half the weight In the corresponding six-cylinder en ?ine and there are twice the number of mpulses per revolution. Consequently, the motor gives the most even torque obtainable and runs absolutely without vibration. This very compact construc tion makes possible a shorter lighter car with a shorter turning radius with out reducing tho length of roominess of the body. Another feature that is attracting the attention of all those who have seen the car is the extreme simplicity of design of the entire chassis and the unexpected accessibility of ail parts about the engine. B. B. Harrington, local manager of the Packard branch, states the ac tivity of the car in all kinds of driv ing, whether In town or on country roads Is actually amazing, and has ar ranged for a "Twin Six" to be In Har riaburg for exhibition and demon atratlng purposes on Friday, July 16 * Adv.'
