SI.50. ip ROAD DRAG SEASON. on a Any Month if the Conditions Ars Bight For its Uso. The road drag is like the manure spreader—in style any month in. the year if the c»*oditions are right for its use. Other machines are put in the shed to wait their season, but the road drag should always be ready to hitch to if we are to use it to the best ad vantage. The accepted time for the use of the drag is when the roads are drying up after the rains. It is sur prising what an immense amount of good can be done the roadd in an hour at such a time. Enough dirt Is brought in to keep the road well rounded np, the water is allowed to run off, and the the mud is puddled and plastered down so that thé' surface is quickly dried and compacted ready to shed the next Some people of seem to have a wrong conception of the time to drag. 1 have seen one of our trustees out earning (?) the town- : ship money after the roads had been shower a little better. six of to as * =¥=* m *=f =* % ou SPLIT LOG DRAG. dry a day or two. He seemed to think the mission of the drag was to fill up the ruts. At any rate, he would drive merrily along, leaving in some places hardly a track among the clods. About the most satisfaction we ever realized from dragging the roads came from a job done in the mud just before the last freeze in the fall. How can you tell when to do it? Just guess at it and keep trying. If it thaws the next day there is no harm done. And when you do hit it you surely feel like a public benefactor as you watch the teams go gliding by on your pavement to bring up with a bump on your neigh bor's rough road. The spring is the time to use the road drag if you want to do some lasting good to the high way. The dirt is soft and easily work ed then, and a few trips over the road with the drag, cleaning out the ditches . and rounding up the surface, will do more good than a gang of men with the grader in the fall. The best job I ever did with the drag was to round up the track on a bad clay hill just as the frost was going out. That hill was good all summer.—C. J. Kelsey in Homestead. MOLASSES FOR ROADS. Of Great Value In Improving High ways When Mixed With Lime. Molasses mixed with lime and oil Is being experimented with by the United States department of agriculture in roadmaking, and this combination promises to prove of great value in bettering the highways in certain sec tions of the country. Last fall the experts of the United States department of agriculture made several experiments on the streets of Newton, Mass. One that attracted no tice on the part of authorities on street construction and no little ridicule was what was dubbed the "molasses road." The street commissioner selected a difficult piece of road on Summit street, with a steep grade and a sharp curve—just the spot for quick destruc tion of a road by the automobile and heavy traffic and an equally advanta geous place for observation of the ef fect of the strong wind. A preparation of molasses, lime and oil was mixed with a small amount of cement and spread on the surface hot. The liquid in the mixture percolated to the substratum of rock and made a surface of from two to three inches of heavy binding material. That section has passed the tests of winter, and to day the surface is so hard that consid erable force is required to dent it with a pickax. It Is not slippery, it gives a firm footing for horses, and automobiles do not skid. On this section of Summit street are located fine residences and a large school for girls, and today, with the windows open, no irritating particles of dirt are driven into the dwellings. Any one who takes a look at Sum mit street Is not likely to gibe at the "molasses road." It is said to be less expensive than street watering.

On the basis of present registration an annual income of $500,000 is expected from this source. The income from auto mobile reelstration fees in Massachu mobiie registration fees in Massacnu , setts for eighteen months amounted to $145,000, which was used In road I maintenance last year. But the state has built 770 mües of improved road, i i 4 which require for proper maintenance an expenditure,of $300 a mile a year, i It Is estimated that a law patterned after that recommended by the New provide a sufficient income in Massa chusetts to maintain the improved roads without a specific legislative ap York AutomobUe association would propriatlon.

Beat Methods For Obtaining Healthy Shrubs Fully Explained. One of the first requisites toward success In spraying trees Is a good and complete outfit. One of the best con sists of a 150 gallon can. which rests on its side in a rack to hold It In place; a strong force pump with an auto matic stirrer, two sections of half inch hose sixteen feet long, two ten-foot extension rods and two double ver morel nozzles, and a wagon 300 twelve-year-old trees can be sprayed in one day. the materials used be first class and carefully compounded, fectual formula is three-fourths of a pound of paris green, twelve pounds of blue vitriol and twelve pounds of fresh air slaked lime to 150 gallons of water, With this outfit, three men, a team It is of the utmost importance that The most ef In preparing the mixture put thirty six pounds of blue vitriol in a burlap sack and suspend it in a barrel con taining thirty-six gallons of water the day before it is "to be used, in order to give it ample time to thoroughly dis solve. Slake twelve pounds of fresh lime, and when ready to use it strain it into another vessel, and slake twelve pounds more to be ready when want ed. Next put three-fourths of a pound of paris green in one gallon of water and keep it thoroughly stirred until ready to use the next day. The following morning, when ready to begin spraying, fill the cask almost full of water, leaving room, however, for the ingredients. Then strain the lime solution into the cask, next twelve gallons of blue vitriol solution and lastly the paris green mixture. Place the ends of the pump hose so as to pump the mixture back into the cask and run the pump several min- ' utes in order to thoroughly mix the entire solution. In spraying apply the mixture with sufficient force to reach every part of the tree and foliage, giving a fine, misty spray until the tree Is well cov ered, which is indicated by slight droppings of the mixture from the trees. Make it a practice to spray three times each season. The first spraying is commenced just before the blossom buds open In the spring. It is at this time that the cankerworm, bud moth, leaf crumpler, leaf folder and cigar case borer are making preparations to begin their destructive work in the orchard. In spraying the second time begin just as soon as the petals of the blos soms have dropped and make the third spraying ten days later. The second spraying is the most !m portant of all, as almost every pest by this time is doing ravenous work. Of all the enemies of tree fruit cul ture the codling moth is the most de structive. It lays its eggs In the calyx or blossom end of the forming apple or pear, and in a few days the egg hatches and the tiny worm eats its way Into the fruit. About the only way any beneficial results can be obtained from spraying for this pest Is to spray while the calyx is expanded and while the form ing fruit is standing upward upon its stem. If the spraying is neglected un til the calyx closes and the fruit has turned downward most of the insects will be inside the fruit, and spraying then will be of little benefit. It is essential to spray thoroughly from both sides of the trees and posi tively not against the wind, even though the wind may seem light. It Is evident that If part of the foliage of the tree is not sprayed the unsprayed parts are as open to the at tack of fungous spores and the stings of the curculio as though there had been no spray within a mile of the tree.
