Nothing Paid For Material—No Largo Profit For • Contractor—Only Coot of tho Road Wao tho Coot of Homo Labor. One faet people are slow t<> lc*sn U that tho sell nature made for growing plants In doea uot make a good road bed. Soil la dtH'otnpoaed or pulverized rock with some huniu* or vogeinhls matter. When this Is wot It la uiud; when very dry It la dust When aoll Is used for a road tho most of the time It la In either one of those two conditions, but there are short periods when there la Just tbo amount of moisture lu the soil that mnkos It so compact as to l>e a firm road. For many yours rural roadmak lug has been some process of getting more soil luto tbo road and the stones out. I cau remember how under the supervision of the “jvnth mnsler*’ we uaed to work out the road tax by drawing soli In the road with a ten in and scru|>er and afterward throw-lug tho stones from the rondbod luto tho ditch. The next year, after the soil had been flattened out by travel, the fame sol! was scraped Into tho center of the road again and tho same stones thrown out. The Inst few years this work has been tnoro cheaply or easily done with the mad worker. This plan of roadmaklug may give a fairly good country road, where heavy loads are seldom drawn, for two or throo months In summer, hut for ihe greater part of - the year then* Is no tlrm, smooth road- J bod. but mud. nils uud dust, says W. ! II. Jonklus of Kidney Ccutor, N. Y., J lu Hoards Dairyman. For the same ! reason that we need better school houses and rural schools w© u©ed ! better country roads. Instituting Htouv J or macadamized roads hi agricultural < localities Is a most wise and farseulug 1 policy, for It hnsteus the tlmo of bet- ! ter agriculture and civilization und * adds to (he value of real estate. ! Mnu always finds nature has autlcl- * pa toil Ills needs and la only waltlug for him to work up to a point whero ho can use what aho provide*. He must learn to muke his roads from tho rock lwfore tho gtacior has ground them into soil, not afterward. For mauy years lu many section* the agri culturists have uot known how to get rid oX the stones ou their Qelda or what use to make of outcropping ledges of rock that could bo quarried. New tbs modern machinery for making macad amized road* and the need oX them and learning the uses of concrete will auiko those among their moot valuable •eeets ou the farm. As I am able to Old) BOADMAKINO MSTHOD HKHL'I/m IN XITfllLU A MUD OH DUST BOADBED. see It, the building of state roads by statu funds does nut beet solve tho problem of good roads for tho farmor, but by the farmers oo-operaLIng with tho Htnto. Tho local Interest and effort are need ed. Thun they will get t>etter roads at b'HH coot. Id many suctions farmers are complaining about poor state roads. In ono road district in Now York two tnHue of macadamised road worn built at a coet of 91,300 par mllo. One half of this amount was subscrib ed by tho pooplu living In the road dis trict, and thu statu paid tbe other bn If. This r-iad was built under the super vision of the town road commissioner, and the steam road crusher and other machinery owned by the town were need. No large profit was paid to a contractor. Nothing vra* paid for ma terial. The only cost of the road was tho coet of labor. I would call Atten tion to the fact that the process of scientific road building an It was done ' In this Instance Is the reverse of that so long practiced by farmers. The soil they try to keep In the road Is first all removed down to the bedrock or gravel, and when thu grading Is dons the understratum of the roadlmd Is inadu of tbe oommou fluid stones ons or two feet thick. Next quarry storm or refuse from the quarry Is broken to make a layer auroral Inches thick, then finished with a layer of hard cruenoo stone rrom in* atone crustier end rolled with the steam roller. I drove over tbla two yen™ from tbe time It wee built and can any tt was In hotter condlton than some-state roads I have seen built nt tbe same time. I have taken pains to tslk with people living on this road and And them en tirely satisfied with their Investment and planning to build more of this road 1 think* on one mile of this roed four farmers live on the average. The road coet them $050 per rnllo, or about $183 each. The loturest on the investment Is less than $10, and I think all ran fee that no farmer ran make a better Investment Here they have a road bed that will last for many years, and the yearly road tax will keep K la repair. Parma have beea cleaned of atone In providing material, work was provided for home labor, a road has been made in tbe right way, according to the principles of good roed build tng, and the benefits that follow are beyond estimation.
