Why New Jerees Supervisor ef
Roads Prefers a Light.r Macadam to
a Ttlford Road How to Build a Good
8tone Highway.
From the time of the prophet Isaiah
to the present men have bad their
Ideas of a perfect highway. The plans
of road engineers have been criticised
- as newfangled, while they were only
aiming at the road that Isaiah saw
with prophetic eye when he cried:
"Make straight In the desert a high
way for our God. Every valley shall
,be exalted, and every mountain and hill
shall be made low, and the crooked
shall be mnria ntrtiU'lit nml )m i.r.i,irK
places piulu." Thus the fancy that a
straight road with easy grades Is a new
Idea la swept away by the words of
Isaiah uttered over 700 years before
the Christian era, writes It. A. Meeker,
- state supervisor of roads. New Jersey,
in the Good Roads Magazine.
Later Claudius Appius had his vision
of a road that would perpetuate his
name, and his dream has been real
ized. But beyond that he gave what?
The monument of a tyrant who com
pelled thousands to work for naught
and a lasting example of bow not to
build a road. The Appian Way, fa
mous In picture and story. Is avoided
over a greater portion of Its length by
very traveler who Is In a hurry to
reach his Journey's end.
This old Roman's Idea of a deep
foundation has lived after him, but no
experienced road builder adopts It
The old Roman's fancy that it is neces
sary to build a deep foundation for a
road crops out here and there, even at
the present time, and Is exploited as
the best and, In fact, the only true way
to build a road. It was not until road
builders learned that thoroughly drain
ed earth was the only Bure foundation
for any kind of road covering that a
great advance was made In road con
struction. That road Improvement la an expen
sive luxury, something nice to have,
but too costly for those who have to
work for a living, is the fancy of some,
but it Is not borne out by experience.
In New Jersey every dollar expended
for road improvement has added tens
and hundreds of dollars to our state's
The first roads I built were sixteen
laches deep, composed of ten Inches of
telford bottom and six Inches of com
pacted two and one-half Inch and one
and one-half Inch crushed stone and
finished with coarse stone screenings.
That the foundation of this kind of
road lasts Is true, but the top wears off
much more quickly, and when that Is
gone every driver avoids the telford
road in good weatbor. I well remember
the first sixteen inch telford I ever
saw. It was In 1801) at my home city
of riainfleld, N. J. We boys were dis
cussing It very learnedly, as we
thought. In fact, we were merely re
hearsing what we had heard our elders
say, when an old Scotchman passed by
and, catching the drift of our remarks,
said: "Boys, It is wrong. It Is a'
wrang. It Is wrong In prencepll. Ilere
ye hae the anveel, an' on It ya put tho
sma' stone. Along comes the horse
and wagon. The horse's hoofs pound
the sma' stone an' the wagon wheels
grind It till, 'twlxt the hammer and the
anveel, the sma' stones ore ground to
powder." We Inugboil at the old Scot,
but my experience has since taught me
that he was right. Not only is a deep
telford more expensive to. build, but
the road wears rough much sooner
than a lighter macadam and Is conse
quently much more exjienslve to main
tain. It is also much harder on horses'
feet, as It has no elasticity.
It has been argued that a deep tet
ford road will not be heaved by frost.
This Is not so. I have seeu fourteen
Inch telford turned upside down by
frost so that the large bottom stones
were on top of the road, while six Inch
macadam built over the same soil and
same conditions of travel remained un
moved, the only other difference In
construction being that underdralns
were placed outside of the macadam,
while none was used beside the tel
ford. To build a good stone mad, first grade
your hill down to S per cent or less
If possible; fill up your flats so you
bare a minimum grade of at least one
half per cent; second, by underdralns
cut off all water that may threaten the
road; third, give your road a crown
of three-quarters inch per foot; fourth,
cut out your subgrade, being careful
to give it the same curvature as the
finished road; fifth, roll the subgrade
until It is bard and smooth, carefully
removing any spongy or vegetable
earth that the rolling may disclose;
sixth, spread your bottom course even
ly, then roll and add a little binder
and continue the rolling until the
stones cease to sink or creep In front
of the roller; seventh, spread your sec
ond course and roll It, with the addi
tion of binder and water, until the
whole surface is hard and smooth,
carefully filling with stone any depres
sions that may appear, then finish the
whole with a course of three-fourths
inch stone and screenings. This must
be soaked with water and rolled until
a wave of mud is formed in front of
the roller, being particularly careful to
commence the rolling at the sides and
gradually work toward the center. By
so doing yon will preserve the crown
of your road. If this work to well
sad thoroughly done, yon will have a
road that Is smooth, bard and conven
ient tor travel at ail seasons of Is
Probltms For Which tho Sorloua Mind
d Are Needed to Solve.
There Is nothing that women cannot
do, but the work mu't be planned with
h , thoroughness that precludes failure
an-.l done with a modesty which Is the
inhcreut ehnrra of the superior sex,

As I said, every community has Its
own problem. Most of these originate
outside of the home Ture wnter, pure
food, pure air, clean streets, sanitary
schools and tenements, district nurs
ing, the education of the Ignorant In
the care of babies, the question of pau
pers, the public baths and traveling li
braries, the treatment of our women
prisoners In prison and after, the lodg
ing house problem these are only a
few of the civic puzzles crying for
trained women to solve.
A woman does probably her greatest
share of her duty as a citizen when
she makes a home a safe and happy
harbor of refuge from a stormy world,
when she brings up her children into
noble manhood and womanhood and
when she does not destroy her husband
and family by bad cooking and bad
temper, but that same woman crowns
her career as a citizen when she In
terests herself In and becomes a vital
part of some problem of government
A woman successful In home life Is
desperately needed lu civic life.
Roadmaking In Which River tand,
Kaolin and Clay Wore Used.
In bis report of road Improvement
done In Delaware, State Highway
Commissioner Francis A. Price de
scribes a bit of experimental road
making in which river sand, kaolin
and clay were used for surfacing, says
the Good Roads Magazine. At the ex
pense of the local taxpayers the foun
dation was graded by a scraper, to a
slope one one Inch to the foot, from
the center line to the side ditches, then
rolled with a steam roller.
On this foundation four Inches of
sand were spread, then four Inches of
clny, which was covered by three
Inches of sand. These layers were
thoroughly ndxed by harrowing, then
rolled down smooth and hard.
On 100 feet of this road what Is de
scribed as kaolin sand was spread, and
on 300 feet sand from a stream near by
was used. For labor and teams the
county paid $172.25 and for Band
$5.13. The entire cost of tills bit of ex
perimental rond was at the rate of
$2,400 per mile. As a summer and a
winter have passed since tills road was
so treated a fair idea of this treatment
should soon be obtainable.
Road Legislation In Arkansas.
The Joint resolution No. 4, Introduced
In the general assembly of the state of
Arkansas by Representative Hunt was
duly passed and was signed by the
governor May 23, 1907. This resolu
tion Is considered tho most Important
of tho good roads measures passed by
the assembly, says the Good Roads
Magazine. It provides for a change lu
The constitution so as to allow cities of
the first and second class to issue
bonds for road building and for pur
poses of general Improvement and
counties for purposes of Improving
their highways. This measure, lu or
der to make It effective, must be car
ried In the election two years hence.

Connecticut Will Build Trunk Roads ee
a Uniform Plan.
Even a year ngo the proposition to
bond the state of Connecticut for
S5.0W.0ii0 or $0,0n0.0ro In order to
build good roads would have been re
garded as visionary. While the auto
moblllsts would have been glad of the
roads which would result from such
a course, it Is doubtful If even they
would have looked upon such a plan
as other than a little too ambitious to
go through, and the farmers wouldn't
have considered It for a moment Now
the eituation has so changed that the
farmers are actually asking the com'
mittee to report a good alsed bond is
sue to be available for Improved road'
ways at about a million a year, writes
a New Haven correspondent of the
Boston Transcript
Connecticut has done much toward
acquiring good roads as a atate, and
yet It to the fact that the atate has no
system of good roads today worthy the
name, and while there are Btretcbes of
road in different sections which have
been well built and built to last In
general way the expenditure of money
does not show.
The basis of the new plan which
aeema likely to receive the support of
the general assembly consists in the
state's taking over absolutely all trunk
roads. The state will be entirely re
sponsible for these roads, and with an
appropriation of a million a year it
won't be long before Connecticut will
have a state wldo network of first class
roads. Certain concessions lu the mat
ter of choosing the road to be Improv
ed will be made to the local authori
ties, but It must be a trunk road.
The state will go into the roadmak
ing business on a large acale, will have
Its own trap rock quarries or take the
entire output of private quarries, will
have its own stone crushers and all
the other necessities for successful
roadmaking, will employ its own fore
men and Inspectors and will go at the
whole business on a uniform plan.
Not the least of the benefits of the
scheme will be the fact that the towns
will have their own soad appropria
tions intact to spend on roads leading
to the trunk lines improved by the
state. It to proposed to bring the high
way commissioner Into even closer
touch with the automoblllsts by giv
ing him an auto In which to travel
from town to town overseeing the
road building. And, Incidentally, all
the taxes on autos coming to the state
will be spent on good roads, in addi
tion to the proceeds from the bond to-

The stronirest minds have gotten their
inspiration direct from Mature. Mature
Is the great teacher of mankind. We
can look to Mature for all our needs. In
the recent Kusso-Jaoanese war the sur-
Snons of the Japanese navy and army
iscovered that wounds would heal more
rapidly and with better success If left to
Mature. Tliny washed the wounds with
water which had been boiled and thus
sterilized then bandaged the wounds
wnn clean linen no powerful drugs or
antiseptics were used In their first aid to
the Injured. Much methoda resulted In
the loss of only 33 out of tintt men treated
In a naval hospital for their wounds. It
