! STUDY R0AD.MAKING
Before the present thaw the
roads in- Union county were
hard and smooth. A "span ' of
horses could draw.- about three
times as much on them then as
in their present "soft'- conditldnV
This i"au object Wesson that our
people will be wise it they heed.
Jack Fost has" demoristrated
what a solid road bed with a
smoothQu'rfaciEpis; The warm
south wind ha ehown - what a
soft road bed 1 with dta surface
covered with' puddles tt cut in
to ruts , is. , The lesson tp be
learned is how to imitate Jack
Frost and construct bur county
roads on the line he strggested

the road bed and smoothness of
surface. The thing is not im
possible of accor4plietrment,but
to do it will require' labor, intich

As preliminary to road ; mak
ing, the Observer suggests4 that
every farmer and property own
er become an -.industrious stu
dent of road making; J The U.S
is spending a great deal of
money every year in gathering
the experience' oft all countries
and ages in road'making. This
information it publishes and
distributes free, for the y . askipg, I
to an. ikere are good road as
sociations in nearly every state
in-the Union and in a. greet
many of the connties. i Neither
the governmenl not these asso
ciations build roads ( but they
gather the experiance, of all
counties and ages and place it

sideration. it'-- T 1 " i; ..it:

is a width of sixty feet necessary
for a boantry road?" The 1,500
miles 6f roads iu Union county
with a width of sixty feet covers
1 0,909 acres. It ia ' believed by
many that a width of thirty feet
Would be ample and that ' the
other thirty feet while it adds
largely to the expense, consti
tutes nothing to the utility or
conveniences of the roads and
is a clear waste of 6,454 acres,

ten sections for the propagation
