Curious Machine For Preparing a
Road For Oil.
A new aud curious kind of roller or
"rolling tamper" has been devised for
use with a type of road Invented and
used In California. This road ha been
railed, from the place where It origi
nated, the Santa Monica system and is
little more than an oiled road In which
the oil Is caused to penetrate deeply In
stead of being merely spread over the
top. The top soil Is loosened to a
depth of several Inches, so that the oil
when applied may penetrate for ipalte
a tllstance below the surface. The
earth thus oiled Is then rolled and
thoroughly compacted and practically
forms nn Inferior kind of asphalt pav
ing. From the circumference of a large
roller project a considerable number
of tamping poluts, and the effect of
this is to compact the soil from the
bottom upward, these poluts sinking
Into the depth of the loosened earth
and rising nearer and nearer to the
surface as the bottom layers become
contracted, until finally the tamping'
point sinks but a little distance Into
the surface of the roadway, says the
Municipal Journal and Engineer. In
using this method of road construction
the earth Is plowed to a depth of about
six Inches and Is properly surfaced
with a road machine, the clods or
lumps having first been broken up
with a harrow or similar machine
Asphaltle oil Is then sprinkled over
the roadway, the endeavor Iving to
give about one gallon of fll to each
square yard, and the oil and earth are
theu thoroughly mixed by a cultivator,
after which tho roller tauiplug begins.
This process of oiling and tninnlnir U
repeated three times, until each Bquare
yard has received alKiut three gallons
of oil, when the surface Is smoothed
down by the use of an ordinary roller.
In the construction of reservoir era
bi.nkments In India the British engi
neers substituted for the roller, which

,M,,r thorough than that which
would result from a grooved roller It I
is said that the idea of the rolling,
tamper was suggested by seeing the j
effect upon the soil of the passing of l
oera or sneep, and It would appear :
u uioogn tne errect of the two might
be very similar. It Is well known that
an ordinary flat roller will not give
nearly so solid an embankment at will
a grooved roller. f

Then he discovered that by mixing oil
of wintergreen with other soothing
agenta he had a liqaid prescription
which killed the germs and cured the
afwul itch, leaving the skin white and
smooth. Slots that time this U D D
