Live a few practical hit as on road
uu.it.ding to the superviors of th
stale. Ciood roads are tiie most
important things in any state, and
t!i first thing lo be considered
i"r it is the basis is the grading.
Never plow ui the center of the
r.md. leave eight or twelve feet in
lit renter. This is firmer than
you can make it, and is a benefit
jor unuer-il'ainage. Where it is
possible hav the grade slope to
the center of the ditch; have no
juare banks next to the road
where it can be avoided; build
your grade one foot higher than
enough. A grade wide enough for
two tracks, eighteen leet, make
a better road than one forty feet
wide. The eighteen foot grade
should have one gravel track and
one dirt. You can grade two
miles of the two track road and
keep it in better condition than"
you can one mile of the forty foot
grade at the fame expense. The
grading of a road should be done
as early as possible, say in March,
and not later than April it will
pack much quicker while the earth
is damp, and there will be less
dust. No eravei eh uld go on a
road until it is thoroughly drained
and graded, for in time it will be
lost by making a grade. Course

gravel should be used first on
new grade, and this should be
packed well with a roller and then
given a coat of fine gravel. Then
you will have a road bed for ages.
To get the most benefit of your
l i . ......,
gravel, wnere it costs $l.oU per
yara, alter your grade is finished,
use an average tread wagon, drive
cerreotly where you want the track
to be, then take a good sized plow
and run two furrows eight inches
aeep, plowing out the wagon track
and throwina the dirt to the center
rill the furrows with gravel. One
yard will go as far as three spread
in the old way. Gravel never
should be spread any wider than
the tread of the wagon, where you
only want one track. The travel
will soon scatter it wide enough.
Road builders ought to bear in
mind not to gravel permanently
hills or hollows, tor sooner o: later
the bills will be graded down and
the hollows tilled up. and the
work will be lost. In regard to
culverts and small bridges, they
should be put on a level with the
surface of the road. It it would
cost $3 to build a wooden culvert
and $15 to build a stone one. the
stone would be th6 cheapest in. the
end. About dirt roads, where
gravel or crushed rock is not to be
bad 'grading and drainage is the
main thing, and while the grading
is being done a six or eisrhi-ton
roller should be taken over th
center of the grai as often as the
grader goes. The road should
have as much attention in the fall
as in the spring. It should be
gone over after the first rains and
be rounded up with the grader,
and the holes filled up and the
gravel put back in the center.
Clean out your ditches and cul
verts, then you will get some bene
fit of your spring work. Two loads
of gravel put on in the fall is worth
more than three put on m the
I imagine some one will say
"any fool ought to know this
