Earth read maintenance now is and

"Practically nil the work done on an
earth road," says W. S. Ccurhnrr, pro
fessor of highway engineering in the
Kansas State Agricultural college, and
state highway engineer, "except reduc

alignment, halldlng of drainage struc

Good Road in Kansas.
Is done correctly It will last for a num
ber of years. The maintenance of an
earth road, however, Is ti never-ending
job. It is like milking the cows
and doing other chores, for the builder
knows that the work of maintenance
will have to be done over and over
again nnd can never feel that it Is In
any sense permanent.
"For this reason the earth road has
n bad reputation. The trouble Is not
so much with the material of which
the road is composed as with our sys
tem or lack of system of management.
Oilier types of roads when treated as
we treat the earth roads are much
more expensive and serve the trnveling
public little if any belter. The vast
Improvement that can be made on our
present earth roads by Intelligent di
rection In their construction and main
tenance is little realized by the pub
lic, nnd the serviceability of a prop
erly maintained earth road Is not ap
preciated when compared with other
types of roads ns to cost of construc

tenance of any kind of a road depends
upon the recognition by the public nnd
I lie builders of a few fixed and funda
mental requirements.
"One practical, well-paid road build
er should be made responsible for the
upkeep of a certain section of road
and should be employed throughout
the year, his tenure of office being
made dependent entirely upon the
Character of N services rendered. The
graded portion of the road should be
elevated and crowned so that the wa

surface will flow Into the side ditches."
Substantial Reasons Why Farmera
Should Get Together1 and Save
Cost of Poor Highways.
The road that connects your farm
with the nearest town has more fo do
with the cost of living, doubtless, than
you realize. Hnye you ever thought
that every product you sell and every
arUcle you buy must be hauled over
the road ; that your teams und vehicles
or your automobile must bear the
"wear and tear" caused by a rough
road to sell farm products or to bring
the necessities from the town?
The fact that your neighbor must
also pay the high cost of bad roads Is
all the better reason why you, he nnd
the rest of the neighborhood should
get together and Improve the road to
save some of this expense. What you
and your neighbors lose In hauling
farm products over bad roads would
soon build a good road and give you
quick nnd satisfactory service.
How long can you afford such loss?
Aud when shall the road be improved?
Increased Expenditures.
In 1904 the actual cash road end

States averaged slightly less than $28
per mile of rural roads. In 1015 the

Good Rules for Winter.
The feeding of the dairy cow should
be governed by the cow's capacity to
produce milk. By keeping a dally
record of each cow's production, the
skillful feeder soon finds that some
cows In the herd respond to an In
creased allowance of feed and return
a good profit on It, while others are
limited in milk capacity and overfeed
ing them is unprofitable. Profitable
feeding requires a thorough knowl

of the values of feeds.

Don't Walt Until Animals Commence
to Die of Blackleg Before Ad

(By O. II. GLOVER. Colorado Agricul

Calves should be vaccinated for
blackleg twice a year, making It a
regular chore, and do not wait until
they begin to die before getting ready.
The period of ordinary susceptibility
ranges from three months to two nnd
one-half years. Most of the vaccine
on the market is reliable and the un
satisfactory results are usually due
to carelessness on the part of the
farmer in not following directions in
using It.

Expensive Feed Bills Will Be Saved
and Milk Flow Kept Up Rye
and Clover Favored.
(By J. G. WATSON.)
Are you preparing for early spring
pasture? Early spring almost invari
ably finds us short of feed. How are
you planning for that shortage? Early
pasture will save expensive feed bills
and help keep up the milk yield. A
good fall and early spring pasture is
rye or a mixture of rye and crimson
clover. Early-sown rye gives con
siderable feed In the fall but should
not be grazed too closely or the plants
may be winter-killed.
The clover crop makes about half
