How to Make and Maintain
a Model Earth Read.
While American road builders
are as capable of constructing
good roads as those of any coun
try of the old world, they have
not been as loyally supported as
the men of those countrries in
maintaining the highways after
completion, and the deplorable
state of many hundred thousand
miles of road is thus accounted
for. County and 'township offi
rials may at the outset stand the
expense of having a road built,
but they strenuously object when
asked to provide funds to rebuild
the road that has been allowe
to go to ruin.
It is important that farmers
learn of the benefits to be deriv
ed from good earth roads; that
county boards be impressed with
the need of a proper maintenance
of the same, and that road build
ers and overseers learn how best
to care for 'the roada in their
The persistent and powerful en
emies of earth roads are water
and narrow tires, and the con
stant effort of the men in charge
of the roads should be to guard
against their destructive effects
and remedy all damage as quick-
y as possible. The simple im
plements which have been found
to be of greatest assistance in
this work are the plow, the drag
scraper, the well Bcraper, the
road grader and the split log
With a Bandy soil and a subsoil
of clay, or clay and gravel, deep
plowing so as to raise and mix
the clay with the surface soil
will prove beneficial. The com
bination forms a sand-clay road
at a trifling expense. On the
other hand, if the road be entire-
y of sand a mistake will be made
f it is plowed unless clay can be
added. Such plowing would
merely deepen the sand, and at
the same time break up the small
amount of hard surface material
which may have formed. If the
subsoil is clay and the surface
scant in sand or gravel, plowing
should not be resorted to, as it
would , result in a clay surface
rather than one of sand or grav
el. A road foreman must know
not only what to plow and what
not to plow, but how and when
to plow. If the road is of the
kind which according to the above
instructions should be plowed ov
er its w hole width, the best meth
od is to run out to the sides, thus
forming a crown. Results from
such plowing are greatest in the
pring or early summer.
In ditches a plow can be used
to good advantage, but should be
followed by a scraper or grader.
o make wide, deep ditches noth
ing is better than the ordinary
drag scraper has yet been devis
ed. For hauls under 100 feet,
or in making "fills" it is espee-
ally serviceable. It is a mistake
However, to attempt to handle
ong haul material with this
scraper, as the wheel scraper is
better adapted to such work.
or hauls of more than 800 feet.
a wagon should be used.
The machine most generally
used in road work is the grader.
or road machine. This machine
is especially useful in smoothing
and crowning the road and open
ing ditches. A clay subsoil un
der a thin coating of soil should
not be disturbed with a grader.
It is also a mistake to use a grad
er indiscriminately and to pull
material from ditches upon a
sand-clay road. Not infrequent-1
ly turf, soil and silt from ditch :
bottoms are piled in the middle 1
of the road in a ridge, making
mud holes a certainty. It is im
portant in using a grader to avoid
building up the road too much at
one time. A road gradually built
up by frequent use of the grader
will last better than if completed
at one operation. The foreman
frequently thinks his road must
be high in the first instance. He
piles up material from 10 inches
to a foot in depth only to learn,
with the arrival of the first rain,
that he has furnished the mater
ial for as many inches of mud.
All IVi&iXi'icil oToju'u be uiuuklik
up in thin layers, each layer well
puddled and firmly packed by
roller or traffic hefore the next
is added. A common mistake is
to crown too high with the road
machine on a narrow road.

used to fill in ruts and smooth

washed, lne drag possesses
great merit and is so simple in
construction and operation that
every iarmer should have one.
A special article will be publish
ed later telling how to make and
use the drag.

IN HER OLD HOME AGAIN.
Arrives Safely and la Greeted by

Yorkshire, Eng., March 17.-
t,uiior independent: Am very
glad to say that I arrived in Liv
erpool Friday, March 13, at 1 p.
m., after a very pleasant voy
age. We would have landed at
8 in the morning, but was de
layed by a dense fog about twen
ty miles from Liverpool, the cap
tain not daring to attempt to
take the vessel to her dock in
such a fog. We were unable to
see the length of the boat I was
not at all seasick and stood the
whole journey splendidly, with
the exception that I contracted a
severe cold, which is not much
improved at this writing, other
wise I am in my usual good
On reaching the Mauretania's
dock in Liverixol, I recognized
three cousins who came to meet
me and whom I had never seen
in my life, only in photographs;
in fact the recognition was mu
tual. Oh! the thousands that
were on the dock to see the in
coming Mauretania, and the
mighty cheers and waving of
'kerchiefs and flags would have
done your heart good to hear
and see. One poor old man in
the crowd I noticed vigorously
waving a tiny flag of Stars and
Stripes. X'lof first cabin pass
engers' bai?giVe w as tuien on
deck, off the ship, examined and
them allowed to depart whither
soever they woild. I got off
very easily, only my smaller
trunk was openec; and by the
way, I never sav my baggage
after leaving Hilsboro until I
saw it on the dock in Liverpool.
I'll say a greatful 'thank you for
such a perfect system of caring
for passengers' btggage.
My relatives had an automobile
in readiness and soon I was be
ing whirled through the streets
of Liverpool to their home, where
I found more than a passing wel
come. There was no mistaking
the heartiness of it. I came to
my old home place on Saturday.
On Sunday I went twice to church
and visited my father's and moth
er's graves. Everyone seems to
recognize me instantly. I do not
recognize teole whom I ought
to know so readily.
I am trying to rest a while be
fore doing much more traveling,
but no, it is go here, so there to
teas, and so forth, until I fear
I cannot accept all the invitations
I receive. I would like to de
scribe the grand ship Mauretania
to you. It is beyond me. Words
fail. I'll send a descriptive cata
logue as it will tell far more than
I can. I'll also send a morning
paper printed on board. In it
you will note a concert was given

ladies were p.sked to pass the col

that an honor? I received sever

which I performed the duty.

in the world to walk gracefully

Committee Meeta Today.
The republican state central
committee is summoned to meet
in Portland today to call a state
convention and to name the num
ber of delegates that every coun
ty in the state may send to that
.Ths-refafcUcsa -state- coaven-
tion will choose four delegates-
at-large for the national conven
tion; also four candidates for
presidential electors. The state
central committee also will pro
vide for conventions in the two
congressional districts, each dis
trict naming two delegates,
which gives Oregon, altogether,
a total of eight delegates in the
national convention. Eight al
ternates will be named to take
the place of delegates who can
not b in Chicago on June 16.
Every republican who takes
part in the county primaries and
convention will have a voice in
naming Roosevelt's successor.
Without waiting for the call
of the state central committee,
several counties of Oregon al
ready have held their conventions
and elected delegates to attend
the state convention. These del
egates no doubt will be accepted
at the state convention, as the
county committeemen assented to
the call of these conventions.
The Marion county convention
refused to pass a resolution in
structing for Taf t So far no
convention in Oregon has in-4
structed for either Taft or
Hughes. Many delegates are
known to be in favor of the re
nomination of Roosevelt or of the
nomination of La Follette: and
the Oregon state convention is
likely to instruct accordingly.
La Follette's recent speech in
the senate on the currency bill
have multiplied his constituency j
over the entire country. He is a
favorite in the west.
Every republican in Oregon
should attend his county conven
tion and should see that the right
kind of men are sent to the. state
convention. The responsibility

Big Campaign New Being Conduct
ed In Hillaboro--Class of 100
to Be Installed Seen.
One of the main objects of in
terest in llillsboro just now is the
big campaign being conducted by
the Fraternol Brotherhood, and
the intention is to reach one hun
dred candidates in this city.
M. I. Chappell, deputy supreme
president of the order, who is
one of their permanent campaign
men, is here in the interest of
the order supervising the work.
The Fraternal Brotherhood has
been organized here for several
years and some of our prominent
citizens are members. Portland
members of the order are also
very much interested in the pres
ent campaign and are preparing
to be present in a body on the
night of the initiation with at
least 200 members. State Man
ager F. E. Taylor, Hon. John
and Jeffrey have expressed their
intention to be here, and many
more of the Rose Cities promin
ent business men will take part
in the series of entertainments
arranged for. In order to secure
the class, the initiation fee will
not be charged and anyone can
become members at this time for
the medical examiner's fee of $2.
Those desiring information re
garding the order can call upon

faithful mothers of Oregon not
earned your affirmative votes for
their full and free enfranchise

afraid of us.

upon you to honor our flag of

you should fail us now. But we
believe you will not fail. You have

laughable every one of them is
going m Tor a square deal it
makes one think there is not an
honest one among them, by the
professions they are making as
to their election, and that they
have been in the habit of doing
just the contrary all their lives.
The fact is it does not speak well
for the republican party to have
their candidates make such an
nouncements, for they ought to
know that it is for that yery pur
pose they are supposed to be
elected. A man's every day life

Extravagance of the public funds
