We may recognize the value of
hard and durable roads in all
parts of the country, but still the
fact remains that for a long time
to come the majority of the roads
will be composed of earth. Fur
thermore, in aliout nine months
out of the year, the earth road,
if properly caretl for, is reasona
bly satisfactory. For many ag
ricultural districts, it is the only
road at present available. Hence,
these communities should set
themselves seriously to work to
learn the best methods of main
taining earth roads and of get
ting the maximum service from
them. Prosperity comes to the
country to a great extent through
the prosperity of the farmers.
This fact strongly suggests the
importance of giving the earth
road 'every possible care and at
tention in its location, drainage,
construction and maintenance.
An earth road composed of
water.holding svJ. should be ex
posed to the sun and air as free
ly as possible, as comparisons be
tween the shaded and sunny por
tions of such a road would easily
ndicate. This should be accom
plished by clearing a sufficient
imount of trees and undergrowth
awav from the road. It must be
remembered, however, that
sandy and gravelly roads require
moisture, and in these cases some
hade should be retained. Fur-
hermore, trees are beneficial
along river banks and on steep
grades subject to washing.
Drainage is one of the most im
portant points to consider in con
nection with an earth road. The
majority of earth roads in all
mountainous and hilly districts
have too much drainage. Occa
sionally a road will be found with
ve ditches, three in the middle
made by the horses' hoofs and
bv wheels of the vehicles, and
two on the sides. All well-con
tructed earth roads are suppos
ed to have no more than two
ditches, one on each side of the
traveled roadway. Keep the wat
er out of the middle of the road
by giving it a crown or elevation
the center ot 1-2 inches
above the top ot the inner slope
of the ditch for a 20-foot road,
and where the hills are a little
steep make the crown 10 inches,
With a crown of about 1 inch to
the foot across the road on steep
grades to deflect the water will
not be needed, instead of carry
ing water across the road in open
ditches, tile or concrete drains,
should, if possible, be provided.
hey should have sufficient cap
acity and fall to carry the maxi
mum amount of water that is ex
pected to flow through them at
anyone time, nie capacity is
increased in proportion to tho
fall or grade; fr instance, 12
inch pipe laid on a one per cent
grade will carry l,8oo gallons per
minute, while the same pipe laid
on a 2 per cent grade will carry
2.500 gallons 1'' minute. Fur
thermore, a cuiyort laid flat wil

ing concerning a lormer ash
ington county man:
"I have no sympathy for those
people who say the whipping
post for a wife-beating husband
is barbarous, " said Judge Gan
tenbein in the circuit court this
morning, in passing sentence on
M. Beard, who had pleaded guil
ty to beating his wife, Mrs. Colia
"I believe the whipping post
law is a good law, and that in
many cases a husband who as
saults his wife should be whii
ped. An assault by a man upon
a woman, and particularly uixm
his wife, is an offense of much
more seriousness than an assault
by a man upon another man."
Though Judge Gantenbein ex
pressed himself as favoring the
whipping-post law, he said he
did not believe Beard's case suf
ficiently aggravated to justify a
sentence of lashes, and sentenc
ed him to four months on the
rockpile. Beard said that he
has served two terms in the state
penitentiary. He was once ar
rested in Washington county for
beating his children. Beard
said he was drunk, and did not
remember whether he had struck
his wife, but if she said he had
he would admit it. He said he
drank occasionally, but that he
always took his liquor home and
drank it with his wife.
