of things. Women knit socks aud vari

tedious part is finished. In the latter
case the stitches at the commencement
of the leg are picked up and the top
worked upward, with the wrong side

Itu:i«l» Made as Smooth, Hard and
Clean as Macadam at an Expense
of From f2OO to $.100 Per Mile—Rut-
tod Uiiimlk Should lie Repaired.
County and road supervisors In
southern California are unanimous in
the belief that the problem of excel
lently macadamized roads at small cost
lias at last been solved, and that solu
tion of it has been attained through
application to them of crude oil. There
are now nearly a hundred miles of road
in ihe several counties isf the southern
part of the state which have been
treated in this manner, and so pro
nounced In every instance and particu
lar has been the success of the trial
that there is no doubt that nearly a
thousand miles will be put under con
tract for the treatment during the com
ing year. It has been found that to
place roads in condition through the
use of oil is cheaper than maintaining
them in half condition during a single
season by sprinkling with water. And
when a road has once been put Into
condition with oil it requires but slight
additional expenditure to keep it so.
On all the main highways in Los An
geles county oil coating is now applied.
Many of them have but patches of it,
half a mile or a mile in extent, the oil
being used upon them to test the effect
it will have upon earths of different
character and upon roads of varying
qualities. It has been found that where
the road had an even, hard foundation,
smooth and clear of ruts, and about
two inches of dust on the surface, the
oil Is a complete success and gives a
surface as polished, clean and clear as
an asphalt street. Where the soil is
clayey, though the surface is rutty, it
will maintain the hard character of the
ground, allay all dust and prevent fur
ther decay by resisting the formation
of mud, the oily and Impervious ground
holding the water in the ruts until it
dries out and preserving the earth be
neath from becoming saturated with It.
On a road of deep, loose sand, how
ever, the oil appears to show little
benefit, though opinion is yet divided
as to whether or not repeated applica
tions of it upgn surfaces of this charac
ter would not ultimately so pack the
sand as to make it a hard, tight body.
Those who claim it would not point
to the fact that the wheels cut into the
oiled sand as before, while those who
think it would pack believe the sand
when applied to streets in the city
would come to be much the same as
bituminous lime rock, which is nothing
more than sand thoroughly saturated
with bitumen. This substance when
applied to hard surfaces packs readily.
It is a fact, however, that the sand
road does not predominate in Califor
nia and that the m*?t common high
way has a hard foundation composed
of clay, with a dust covering worn
from the surface which will blow
away with the wind, and thereby
cause more dust to be released from
the surface, as a result of which ac
tion the road is eaten down and be
comes .rutty and wornout. With this

character of road, especially before the
rats get into it, the oil is a lasting
boon. Roads which have ruts should
be repaired before being treated, and
on sandy stretches the sand should be
removed or overcome, even though it
might be necessary to spread upon the
surface a layer of clay and roll it
down before applying the oil.
One hundred barrels of oil per mile,
spread over an area 18 feet in width,
will put a road in condition along the
extent of the oiled surface and give an
excellent roadway, adequate for or
dinary traffic. The oil is put on in
three applications, the first at the rate
of GO barrels per mile and the two
subsequent treatments at a rate of 20
barrels per mile each. Great care
must be taken in delivering the oil. It
should be hot when discharged and
poured upon a hot surface, so that the
work of the oil sprinkling la confined
to the heat of the day. The oil cannot
be poured on Indiscriminately, but
must be drilled into the dust as wheat
Is drilled into land prepared to receive
it. If it is not so applied, the oil will
not saturate evenly the dust area, but
will lie in splotches, run together and
so make a very imperfect success,
either as a job of sprinkling or as an
oiled surface.
«-i order to meet the requirements a
machine has been devised which, while
it does not by any means limit the field
for inventions of this sort, nevertheless
supplies a want In this direction. A
big tank, mounted on four wheels,
drags a sort of tender box supported
by two wheels, into which is run from
the tank a supply of oil. This box has
a furnace beneath it which heats the
oil, and attached to it is a drag, look
ing something like a hayrake. A num
ber of curved rods or fingers go out
from the bottom, and these are drawn
through the dust and along the road.
They mark little furrows in the dust,
and Into these furrows, through a se
ries of pipes, is discharged the oil. A
second finger or sort of thumb arrange
ment, fixed farther back, turns the
dust over the oiled furrow, and the
surface is then left to absorb, a process
which requires about an hour V) eSect.
A roller is then drawn over the oiled
width, and the first treatment is com
Contracts for the three treatments
are taken at from $205 to $270 per
mile, according to the price of oil and
the character of the surface to be
worked. But even at this rate the cost
is not over 0 cents per running foot of
the 18 foot width, and of this sum, un
der the general regulations, the county
pays one-tbird, and the property own
ers on the road on each side pay each
one-third. Under this arrangement It
would cost an owner $2 to put in con
dition the road in front of 100 feet of

The Place to Save Money
How the Amateur Dressmaker Ca
Handle Cloth, Fine Flannel, Etc.
One of the worst stumbling blocks in
the path of the amateur dressmaker
or, Indeed, that of the professional of
ten Is the dillieulty of properly shrink
ing certain materials before they are
suitable to be fashioned Into wearing
apparel. In regard to this bugbear a
Good Housekeeping correspondent
gives some sensible suggestions, from
which the following Is learned:
This operation of shrinking, or spong
ing, as it is termed by tailors, Is essen
tial whenever broadcloths, ladies'cloths
or fine flannels are employed in order
to prevent future spotting, cockling or
shrinking from rain or dampness. In
the finer grade of cloths kept in stock
by leading houses In large cities these
goods are often sold warranted as
steam sponged. Unless so guaranteed,
however, the extra work should not be
passed by. To many women the home
management seems too risky to be un
dertaken, for the reason that much of
the rich appearance of fine, handsome
cloth could be easily Injured by care
less handling.
Supposing, however, that the ama
teur does not care to pay the tailor $2
or $3 or, what is far more probable,
suppose that she is out of the reach of
a "knight of the shears." Some friend
will tell her that a damp cloth must be
laid upon the goods and that then it
should be pressed upon the wrong side.
She views the billowy heap of six or
eight yards (which she has unrolled to
estimate the task) with dismay, for
how can she ever dampen and press
evenly all of that huge pile of cloth—
for huge It looks to her anxious eyes?
Surely one part will dry long before
the rest and the marks where the Iron
stopped will be unmistakable. She is
satisfied that to undertake the work in
bo blundering and awkward a way
would be worse than letting the fabric
go unsponged.
Then the next time she asks for ad
vice it is from some one who knows,
for the first Instructor was merely a
theorist and had never put into practico
that which she preached. This time
our amateur goes to work with a bet
ter heart and first carefully dampens a
large sheet and neatly folds the cloth
therein, wrapping the bundle smoothly
with a blanket to keep the dampness
even. This answers better perhaps,
but why not put brains to work and
try to Improve upon even this make
shift way?
Have you never thought, when you
have seen Bridget taking the half dried
wash from the clothesline on "bluo
Monday," that perhaps you might bor
row a suggestion from her work?
Then, again, are not clothes left out
upon the line overnight thoroughly and
evenly dampened by morning? What,
pray, is there to prevent taking your
full length of new cloth out to this
same clothesline some night after dark
ness sets, when the air is damp, but no
rain threaten*, and allowing it to re
main hanging therefrom, securely fas
tened with clothespins, until the fol
lowing morning?
The following morning the sun will
at an early hour place the cloth in ex

into the house when at any desired
state of dampness or dryness. Then,
by keeping the impressed portion
smoothly folded, so that It will remain
as damp as Is required, the cloth may
be Ironed quickly and easily and with
out flurry or nervous strain. Try it
and avoid the tailor's bill.
How to Clean Oilcloth.
The best way of keeping this in order
is to linve it regularly robbed up with
beeswax and turpentine or with any
good furniture polish at stated luter
vals, according to the amount of wear
it receives. It should be dally dusted
and if necessary wiped over with a
damp cloth and then well dried, but
never scrubbed or soused with water.
Both these processes are absolutely de
structive. An occasional rub over with
skim or sour milk adds Immensely t. (
its polish and hence to the Baring of

It is a very pood time to rake over
the library and buy books, if one ever
can. They are cheaper now, and the
holiday Influx has loft a large choice.
People who sell them, too, have more
time to show and discuss them. Is this
a new idea? It is an accepted custom
in some families, for there Is no use
in thinking that there is any time of
the year when there Is nothing to be
bought! And books are selected more
judiciously if they have their special

pretty ones reproduced from Vogue. A

trimmed with fine embroidery. The
