Drainage Is the key to success In
innlsliiB earth roads, and constant
watchfulness Is the sure means of keep
ing them up after they are once well
made, says SInurlce 0. Eldrldge, assist
ant director public road Inquiries. Wa
ter Is destructive to any road, especial
ly to a dirt road. Therefore drainage
that will at once enrry away rainfall or
melting snow Is absolutely necessary.
Again, little breaks In the road may be
made by rain or by n Heavy load at any
time and If not repaired Immediately
will grow Into mudholes, especially In
the winter, and these mudholes easily
and rapidly develop Into nn almost im

tlon and n little work will keep tho
road In good condition and with less
cost than under ordinary methods.
With good drainage established In
building the road and frequent inspec
tion to keei the drainage elliclcnt und
to ineu1 promptly small Injuries to the
surface, the earth roads of the United
States couli' be maintained in a much
higher state of usefulness than nt pres
ent and at considerably lower cost
The aim in making n road Is to estab
lish tho easiest, shortest and most eco
nomical "no of travel. It is therefore
desirable that roads should be Arm,
smooth, comparatively level and fit for
use nt all seasons of the year, that they
should be properly located so that their
grades shall be such that loaded vehi
cles may be drawn over them without
great loss of energy, that they should
bo properly constructed, tho roadbed
graded, shaped and rolled, and" that
they should bo surfaced with the best
available material suited to their needs.
While clay aloue never makes a good
road except In dry weather, sand alone
never makes a good road except when
wet. The more the drainage of a Band
road is Improved the more deplorable
becomes its condition. Nothing will
ruin one quicker than to dig n ditch on
each side and drnin all the water
away. The best way, therefore, to
make such a road firm is to keep it
constantly damp. This can be done by
planting shade trees along its side to
prevent the evaporation of wnter or by
growing upon the surface of such sand
roads n thick turf, preferably Bermuda
grass. Boads running through loose
sand may be Improved by mixing clay
with the sand and slightly crowning
For .the temporary Improvement of
earth or sand roads any strong fibrous
substance, especially If it holds mote
ture, such as refuse or sugar cane or
sorghum,, and. even common straw,
flax, swamp grass or pine needles, will
bo useful. Spent tanbark is sometimes'
beneficial, and wood fiber In any form
is excellent. Enough sand or earth
should he thrown over such roads to
keep them damp and to protect them
from catching lire.
Earth Is composed of small, irregular
fragments which touch each other at
points, leaving voids between. When
the enrtu is broken tup and pulverized,
theso voids are almost equal In volume
to the solid particles, nnd, ns n result,
the earth will absorb almost an equal
volume of wnter. In the building .or
maintaining of earth roads It Is there
fore very desirable that these small,
Irregular particles be pressed nnd pack
ed into ns small a space as possible In
order that surplus water may not pass
In and destroy the Btnbillty of the road.
To this end rolling Is very beneficial.
The work of maintaining dirt roads
will be much Increased by lack of care
in properly rolling the surface. After
the material has been placed on the
surface It should not be left for traffic
to consolidate or for rains to wash off
into the ditches, but Bhould be carefully
surfaced and then rolled.
In making extensive repairs plows or
Bcoops should never be used, for such
Implements break up the compact sur
face which age and traffic have made
tolerable. Earth roads can be rapidly
repaired by a Judicious use of road ma
chines and road rollers. The road ma
chine places the material where It Is
most needed, and the roller compacts
nnd keeps It there. These two labor
saving machines fare Just as effectual
nnd necessary in modern roadwork as
the mower, self binder and thrasher
are in modern farm work. Road ma
chines and rollers are the modern In
ventions necessary to satisfactory and
economical earth road construction nnd
repair. Two good men with two teams
jean build or repair more road In one
day with n roller and road machine
than many times that number can
with picks, shovels, scoops and plows
nnd do It moro uniformly nnd more
By using wide tires on heavy wagons
the cost of keeping roads in repair
would be greatly reduced. The Intro
duction in recent years of wide metal
tires which can be placed on the wheels
of nny narrow tired vehicle at a nomi
nal cost has removed a very serious
objection to the proposed substitution
of broad tires for the nnrrow ones now
FOR GOOD ROADS.
Association Formed to Connect Stnte
Cnpltnls With WnnhliiBton.
In Now York city recently nn associ
ation was formed to agitate the cause
of good roads. This association, which
tins adopted the name of the American
Roadmnkers, has in view the securing
of a system of highways which shall
connect the capitals of the various
states with Washington. The first ef
fort will be made by an appeal to the
nntloual government to appropriate $1,
000,000, to be used through the road
inquiry department, to map out routes
from capital to cnpltal.
This organization 1b to be divided in
to departments of the east, south, cen
tral and west, corresponding to geo
graphical lines. It was decided to
limit the membership to ten from each
state until each Btate Bhould have ten
representatives. Then another ten
would become eligible. The president
Is elected for one year. He will be suc
ceeded by the first vice president, nnd
the succession to office will be in this
The following officers were elected:
Senator Horatio S. Earle of Detroit,
president; Edward Bond of Albany,
first vice president; R, H Thompson of
Seattle, second vice president; Judge
Warner of Houston, Tex., third vice
president; W. Crandall of New York
secretary, and W. L. Dickinson of
Springfield, Mass., treasurer. Assist
ance has been promised by the road in
aulry department in securing the cxhi
ltion nt St. Louis of the various road
making machines; also, various road
building firms will build short stretches
of road at the exposition, which will
be examined by experts.

Mr. M. A. Haralson, a Troup county
farmer who lives about twelve miles
from West Point, drovo a four mule
wagon into that market with sixteen
full sized bales of cotton on it. says the
Atlanta Journal. The weight of the
lond was about 8.000 pounds, besides
the heavy wagon. on which It was piled.
Mr. Haralson made the trip from his
farm In remarkably good time, and
his team showed no signs of having
been taxed, It would (bave been lm
possible for him to take sixteen bales
of cotton to market even with his four
fine mules If the Troup county roads
had not been In excellent condition.
There are some counties in Georgia
where, eight bales would have been a
full load for bis team, and then be
weuld nave had to travel very slowly.
