Some counties are building their roads entirely too narrow. They do well for automobiles but they are mighty inconeenent and dangerous for th man in the wagon or the woman 11 the buggy. Everytime I see one of these narrow wheeldarrow or bridle paths I wonder why the people who drive horses and mules stand for them. The moterist do not worry. They can get along if the other folks can. Automobile owners have cursed for years for frightening stock, hut many aserious accident has been due to narrow roads and deep ditches. The people who live on a road are the are the ones most interested in having it wide. They travel it every week, while the man with th auto may not use it more than once or twice a year. A wide road lasts longer than a narrow one, and while the first cost is greater in porporton to the width, the life of the road is much the longest. Up-to-date road builders are Up-to-date road bulders are providing for future requirements They know that thenotir truck is coming, and that the present desity of traffic will probably be doubled in tenor fifteen years. Traffic on rural public roads may not increase so fast but it is steadily growing. Advocates of the narraw road tell us that in some parts of Europe the highways are only 16 to 20 feet wide. Yes,and on most of these roads you meet women and dogs hauling the carts, too. On a narraw road with a high crown evrey vehicle has to travel in the same tracks. Consequently ruts appear, and the road wears away rapidly. Make the roads wide, with the crown not more than, one inch in twelve. Three-quarters of an inch to the foot is about the average specification. ? ?? yf_ at n . tt r. r. iUI". 1u. v. i nuuia>3 tv ao vaiuu tv Jonesboro, N.
