With a Small Capital Donated by Fel low Townsmen He Improved Roads In Jefferson Township, Wayne Coun ty—Drainage a Big Factor. An authority on the construction ol highways has the foi'owlng to say In regard to the construction of country roads. He says: To have a good road in any country In the first place we oust have drain age. You will all agree with me there, because a road must be kept dry or It v 111 be soft. 1 nave a system of road work which I have followed for the last five or six years. We must have a system by which to build our roads or we never can hare good roads. I know of no better way to give my system of road work than to tell how I worked half of a township for three years, then tell how I fixed and main tained certain pieces of oud. Five years ago l took one-half of the road work In Jefferson township, Wayne county, la., there being about thirty-six mi.es of road in very bad From Good Iload* Magazine, New York. ORADINn TUB HIGHWAY. shape, ditched up am! culverts In very bad shape and only about forty poll taxes and S3BO to do th.s work with. I took two plows, right and left, went all over the roads, plowing fur rows from twenty to twenty-two feet apart on the side of the road. Some times when the road was In trough shape I plowed as close as eighteen feet. And low places and near culverts where I had used scrapers i plowed three or four furrows on a side. By the time 1 got over the roads I knew Just what had to be done and how to distribute my work. As soon as It was dry enough to scrape 1 went on the road with a small crew. I fixed the culverts and wherever I felt 1 had lime tilled In ditches and threw up low places and got It In shnpe for grader. I mostly put on ten horses donated by the people. In the fall some wanted their roads graded again nnd donated the work. I got $l5O donation work. Then I went on the roads again with the plows and plowed oue furrow on each side of the road, then fixed cul verts nnd put In the time throwing up low places and filling large ditches. 1 then went over the road with a grad r, asking a little donation In some places where the roads needed a little more work. I got SSO donation and the roads in line shape. Next year 1 went on the road and fixed culverts and places where water laid made some large ditches and scraped in the sand that lodged |u the low places and at the foot of the hills. When the ground got In good condition 1 took two King drags. 1 hitched to them so they ran at an angle of forty-five degrees, com menced at outside of road, and when I came to a hill where the banks needed cutting 1 hitched near the end. so it would cut the bank that was to move the ditch over from the road. We would go a few rounds, one drag cutting up hill and the other down. Six years ago a steep hill cart of my house was in a trough shape, nnd 1 plowed the sides and threw.it in with the scraper until 1 had It highe: t in the middle nud about twenty feet wide. It took about one-lutlf day. Then I commenced dragging It, and quite a large ditch had got on one side, i widened It by running against the bank with the wagon wheel while drivtug to the field, using it for a lock and to wear out the bank. A bill west of my pla''e which 1 com nieueed to drag some time ago was lowest iu the middle. 1 had ten acres of ground to plow, which took me about four days. 1 hitched on to uiy drag with three horses, put tie plow on it and started to the field. I com menced the road about twenty feet wide. A ptrt of the way there was sod. I would bring the drag borne and take it back every time 1 went. By the time the field was plowed I had an impression on the road, so the water took to the side of the road where I hnd gone with the drag. Soon the ditches were a foot deep. and. of course, the middle w as a foot the high est. 1 kept on dragging every time I went to the field and would set my drag Into the bank wherever it would get mellow. The elements did at least GO per cent of the work. You may sight across the banks and the middle of the road is no higher than the bnuks. so you see the water has done j the work, nud 1 smoothed up after It. The two miles of road I keep up in fine shape around my farm, and it takes about one day In the year to keep it up.

LOOKING BACKWARD Fifty Year* Ago: Or the Cabins of Btf Axe County We left Wm. Coalter and family at home, where be and his wife spent heir life and are now buried in Sabin cemetery. Dr. Sabin bought land a little farther down the valley, where he lived to a ripe old age of eighty-five years. For many years he had an ex tentive practice and for a long time was the only physician in western part of Richland county. He and his wife (who had cancer) are buried in Sabir, cemetery, pavia Sabin bought a place nearby, but in about two years sold out and came to the town of Union, Bad Axe county, where he lived for manv years. Late in life he and his wife fol lowed their children and settled at Lady smith, where he died about two years ago. His widow is still living there. Shane and James Jordan thought that they would rather have ridge land and bought the southwest quarter of Section 28 in the town of Union, this county, where they proceeded at once to erect a cabin for their families. Here we might mention some of the worthy pioneers of Sabin neighborhood: John Higginbotham and Eleazor Goman to the south, Messrs. Alaback. Francis, Higgins, Robert, Marshall, William and Samuel Fetty (the latter now a resident of Viola) were located to the west, and as we go down the main valley we find Sam. Groves, who kept a blacksmith shop, and then Oliver Guess (late of Keadstownj, who had a sawmill at the junction of two branches. Farther down Mathias Merle and his two sons Thomas and William, also a widowed (laughter who afterwards married a Mr. Nevel, whose boy was mobbed at the Richland county jail for the suppos ed murder of a woman in the vicinity of Boaz. Next Albert Sattzman and Wm. Gordon, who later moved to Min nesota; then George H. Babb, who for many years taught school and then preached for the Disciple church until late in life. He lived to be eighty-six years old and was totally blind for sev eral years. He and his wife and sever al of their children are buried in Sabin cemetery. Others worthy of mention were James Twaddle and his sister “Betsey,” who was blind from birth. This small cluster of settlers had start the public school and had erected a building for that purpose. As I re member it was about sixty rods below Guess’ mill and above the road. It was a one-story log building, with the door in the corner hung on wooden hinges and a wooden latch with a string at tached so the door could be opened from the outside. Among the scholars I now can locate, are Nathan Higgin botham and John Twaddle of Sabin, William and John McDaniel of Soldiers Grove, A. W. Guess and Mrs. Maggie Benn of Viola, and W. S. Jordan of Ladysmith. Amanda Merle was the teacher; a woman of noble worth, just the kind to endure the hardships of a new country, especially during the dark dars of ’6O-’65, when through loyalty to'the flag many of our young men ans wered the call for 300,000 more. Among them was her husband, who bade his young wife and five little child ren goodbye and started. The oldest were two boys, aged nine and seven years. With these boys and a yoke of yearling oxen she tilled the few acres of cleared land and the last time I met them they were tramping wheat with the oxen, afterwards to be fanned with a sheet, when some of the neighbors would take it to the mill. After the struggle and the return of the husband and father, they sold their small home stead and -emigrated to Kansas. Who dare say such women are not worthy a place in history? Loyal to husband, family, home and her country! In the meantime father and uncle had built a cabin and we started on our final journey: up the valley and onto the ridge where we again struck the Black River road near Darnell’s tavern. Early settlers will remember him on account of his being blind; though quite active and very entertaining. Next opening was that of Joseph Pippin, who kept a cooper shop and supplied the settlers with sap, meat a .id kraut barrels made from the excellent white oak timber; hoops were made of young hickory, ail worked by hand. Then we passed quite a distance through the dense forest, coming to an opening near Pleasant Ridge church. A Mr. Crandall had a small opening and just over the hill his son-in-law, Henry Hurless (late of Or ion) ; then to our right Nathan Ford. Thence the ridge bore westward when we came to the largest farm on our way, that of Ralph Griffin, father to your John Griffin; and to tbe left down under the hill by a very large spring, Aaron Mullendore (late of California) had begun to carve what was later one of the best farms in the town of For est. Thence through the dense forest we bear eastward. George Fruit had a small opening nnd his brother-in-law, John Hurless, had a small cabin: near also, Martin Rogers and to the right, by another spring, Wilson Crandall bad made a start. Then again into the dense forest we plunge until we reach what is now West Lima, then Hoosier po’toffice. The postmaster was Jessie Harness, late of Rockton. Then into the woods until r.ear Vemon county. We leave the Black River road and fol low anew trail about three-fourths of a mile nown the hill in the head of the hollow, where the cabin was to shelter both families until another could be built. These were the last days of August. After an almost continuous journey for three months we are in one of thexab ins of Bad Axe county. l .nFargt March 17. A. T. Jordan.
