The proper proportion of sand nnd clay
' can best be determined however, as the
wrk progresses, as s-ome clay will con-
tain more sand than others. In fact.
clays are very frequently found wld h
already contain about the right propor
tion of sand.
If the road to be treated l sandy the
surface Is first leveled off and crowned
with a road machine, the crown being
about one-half Inch to the foot from the
"enter to tho sides. The clay Is then

usmllv added, which Is thoroughly ni x
ed with the clay, either by traffic or hv
means of plows and disk or tooth har
rows. The best results have been obtained
by thoroughly mixing or puddling thei
materials when wet. For this reison It
Is desirable that the mixing be dune In I
vet weather. The mlx'ng can be left
to the traffic after the nnterlals have
been properly placed, but this Involves a

nnd even then the mixing Is not n'wnvs

to dress the roid with a road machine 1
