A had mud-hole in a dirt road isn't
so easy to remedy, and it often hap
pens that when a load of rock is
thrown into a mud-hole it results in
two holes where there was but one.
It is suggested by the State Highway
Department that sometimes the worst
mud-hole can be remedied by drilling
down four or five feet and putting in
a shot of dynamite, which loosens
up the sub-soil and provides under
drainage. In a number of counties it
is nossible to put in vertical drains
along the side of the road reaching
ifou-n into the first strata of sand or
gravel, which, will permit the water
to be carried away, water is tne en
emy of earth roads, and too much at
tention cannot be given to the matter
of drainage.
