ANNOUNCEMENTS
Landlords—If you are not getting
satisfactory returns from your rental
property, let us show you what, we can
do with it. We have been in this
line of business for 13 years and our
landlord's property has our personal
supervision. We do our collecting of
rents ourselves, and do not turn col
lections over to an Irresponsible boy to
take what the tenants may see fit to
give him. We handle property for some
of the representative citizens of Bir
mingham and have letters from them
showing that they are receiving bigger
returns from their property than they
have ever received before. Give us a
trial. Sherrod & Hale. 2121V4 1st ave.

Mr. Loring Brown, proprietor of the

has this to say about Blackman’s
Medicated Salt Brick: “It pays for
itself 10 times over in the increased
health and looks of stock, and no
stock owner can afford to be without
it. I know it knocks worms out of
pigs, and keeps all stock in a healthy
condition. It keeps their livers active
and their digestive organs in good
shape, which insures feed going one
third further.” Blackman’s Medi

American Military Roads
Are Being Built to Endure
Predicts That Road Conditions After War Will Be Same
as After Caesar's Legions Poured Through Gaul
Into Britain and Returned
“When the history of this war has been written,” says D. O. Skinner, In
j ternational Motor company, “it will be more fully realized what a vital part
good roads have played in the great struggle. At the start, motor trucks
leaped to the front as the modern pacemaker of flexible transportation, and
ever-increasing war needs have demanded new roads and better roads as
i most necessary for the proper backing up of fighting forces.
-vjoior trucKs by the thousands win
contribute an enormous advantage to
the United States road engineers en
gaged in new construction back of our
lines. It is estimated that 3200 miles
of highways will be built in 3918 by
American road engineers in the rear
of the firing line in France. To the
special road building battalions is dele
gated the important task of keeping
lines of communication constantly
open, and Mack trucks, working in con
junction witli modern American road
machinery, will help to build new strate
gic lines and keep communicating roads
in constant repair. The fleet will be
composed of several thousand dump
trucks, hot road oilers, pressure sprink
lers for making water-bound macadam,
j gasoline tank trucks, printing press
trucks for printing blue prints, instruc
tions, pl^ns, reports, etc., machine shop
trucks, blacksmith and tool repairing
trucks. ' *
REPAIR IS BIG TASK
“Although France is particularly well
endowed with good roads, it is often
necessary for military reasons to con
struct many new lines. An estimate
places the present mileage of French
roads at one mile of road for each one
and one-half square miles of ground
surface. The tremendous task of keep
ing these roads in perfect condition and
building new ones at the same time can
well be imagined'} when it is realized
that so far as wear and tear are con
cerned, war traffic is 30 times as great
as that on Fifth avenue, New York.
“Most of the roads of France are
built of water-bound macadam. The
peculiar nature of the French soil,
which is of limestone formation, lends
itself readily to compaction under the
road roller and makes a very good road
! building material, although it requires
j constant maintenance. The British,
however, introduced the tarred surface
| road and an increasing mileage of that
| type is found back of the British lines.
“One of the principal objections to the
water-bound macadam road near the
front is the dust which rises from it in
dry weather under heavy war traffic.
Clouds of dust draw artillery fire from
the enemy, and for this reason United
States engineers, in planning road con
struction and maintenance near the
American front, will probably utilize
large quantities of tar coating, which
is freely obtainable in France.
HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF
“Of course, the pressing object of
American road construction is to pro
vide for the immediate needs of our
forces, but the work carries with it
both utilitarian and historic value.
When Caesar's legions poured through
Gaul and into Britain and returned to
Rome again, they left in their wake
military roads so carefully constructed
that many sections remain today as
permanent monuments of their pres
ence.
"American system and modern meth
ods likewise promise to contribute many
enduring benefits to France. Our road
building battalions are going about then
work scientifically and with an object
fully as far-reaching as the work of
Caesar. All is not destruction that
comes out of war, and many American
built highways will remain to become
of immeasurable value to France in con
ducting her commercial and social in
ter course.”
Imitation Leather
From the Popular Science Monthly.
, I-inseed oil, certain paints, rosin, gun.,
and a chemical treatment—and we will
have a compound as tough and as dur
able as leather! Such are the wonders
of modern chemistry; from substances
inelastic and useless of themselves, val
uable, commercial articles a--o being
made."
The process Tor producing this imiia
tion leath is based upon one discovered
as long ago as 1864. At this time Fred
erick Walton found out how »•. durable
and sanitary fioor covering could be
made. This covering—the forerunner of
our modern l noleum—consisted of strong
canvas doth covered with an oil-and
rosin compound heated and hardened
while exposed to the air. A modification
gives patent leather.
