Why King System Is Cheapest
as Well as Best
IT BECOMES MERELY A CHORE
By Quitting a Little Earlier Farmer
Can Easily Renew Hia Boulavard.
Proof of Wintar Dragging' Valua.
Camparieen of Coat.
tCopyrifht. 1907, by D. Ward King.
Tbe cost of putting the King system
In operation Is a matter which must
have consideration. Cost always Is
When one first bears about road
dragging he feels certain a mistake or
an exaggeration Is somewhere snugly
concealed, and an active brain spends
a certain period searching for its hid
ing place. Convinced at last of the
drag's achievements as a wonder
worker, tbe same brain asks, "What
is tbe expense?" and again Is skeptical
when the answer comes, "The cost of
the new system Is many times less
than the cost of the old system."
For tbe farmer who drags tbe half
mile or mile, as may be, from "his
own front gate to bis neighbor's front
gate toward town," there Is no ex
pense account. With the drag In tbe
road at the front gate, he quits a little
early at noon or In the evening, as
the condition of the road soil decides,
hitches to the drag and renews bis
boulevard. It becomes merely a chore.
A neighbor of mine says, "After a fel
low once gets Into the fashion of drag
ging It sticks to blm like a bad habit."
For myself, I have been riding a drag
since the spring of 1896.
In the fall I can take a team from a
corn wagon at the crib and drag my
half mile stretch before the corn Is un
loaded, and In the winter months most
farmers can Snd an abundance of lei
sure In which to drag, and the operation
possibly 1 of as much benefit In tbe
winter as It is In tbe summer. In this
latitude (near tbe Mlssourl-Iowa line)
we find two conditions of the road In
winter when dragging is remarkably
effective. One of these special condi
tions Is when a rough and frozen road
Is thawed an Inch or more In depth
at about 4 o'clock In tbe afternoon.
Another fovorable opportunity Is at
tbe close of a warm spell when tbe
wind changes to the north and the
mud begins to stiffen with the chill.
If the mud is dragged Just before a
freeze tbe road of course remains
smooth until another thaw, and tbe
difference between such a road and
one which was permitted to "freeze up
rough" is as marked as the difference
between deep mud and a dry road.
On the one you can skim along at any
speed; on the other you must move at
a snail's pace, with the horses gingerly
picking their steps and tbe vehicle
bouncing around as If you were riding
over a fresh blast In a rock quarry.

showing the skepticism often met, the
other confessing a radical change of
opinion and furnishing proof of the
value of dragging In the winter
months. The writer addnssed a good
roads meeting at Hampton Not. 28,
1905. Under date Nov. 28 In the nurse
of an extended report of tbe meeting
the Record said:
"It la to be regretted that there was
no spilt log drag at band that he could
make a satisfactory demonstration
with, the one available not being In
accordance with the requirements, and
the attempt to show Its workings were
of little or no benefit."
But in the issne for Dee. 0 the Rec
ord admits the innccuracy of Its first
Impression tu the following paragraph,
the kernel of which is found in the
last sentence of the quotation:
"The King drag that we have here
In town Is being used today on our
streets, and If we bad teams enough
and drags enoueh Hamilton wm.1,1
have good roads within the city limits
tomorrow, whereas Tor a week they
have been practically impassable foi
the reason that the ground froze up a
week ago last night leaving the roads
all cut up. And suppose that every
man In the comity hud had a King
drag, costing about $2, and had drag
ged the road In front of his premises
once over arsd back a week ago Tues
day, the afternoon that Mr. King spoke
at the courthouse, we would have had
good roads ever since. This Is demon
strated by the fact that wherever on
our streets the drag was used that aft
ernoon has been a smooth track ever
80 much for the value in tbe winter
of the winter dragging.
But winter dragging prepares the
way for lessening the cost of spring
and summer dragging, because if the
roadway has this winter preparation
it will generally dry off and be. ready
to drag before the adjoining fields dry
out and are fit to be plowed or culti
vated. And so another series of leisure
hours Is provided for making good
roads without money.
I would rather drag half a mile of
road for a year than water three horses
for a year.
If I should try to strike a balance for
the twelve months, it would be some
thing like this:
Comfort and pleasure of my
own family fs.M
Time aaved 10.00
Bavins' In wear and tear MO
Benefit to netf hbora and gen
eral publlo ico. OS
Balance in favor of the drag 117. 01
The last Item will perhaps need ex
planation. The figure is based on" an
estimate that our family will average
one trip per day to town and that
there Is an average of ten other teams
per day passing. For good measure I
cut in half the benefit to neighbors.
Hon. Matt Hall, now warden of the
Missouri penitentiary, was a wood
dragger before he left the farm. In a
published statement be tells of begin
ning his work in deep mud. In two
months he had a half mile of road of
which be said: "I can hardly believe
my own eyes when I look at it. A
loaded wagon won't make any more
impression on it than it would on a
floor. I don't believe I have spent a
hall' a day on It altogether, and, bon
eRtly, I wouldn't near take $30 for tbe
comfort it has been to me and my
friends and neighbors." You will note
that Mr. Hall's estimate of benefit Is
about double mine.
A comparison was recently made
which showed by figures taken from
many counties and from Maine to
Minnesota that a dollar spent under
the new system would produce as
much benefit as several hundred dol
lars spent the old "way. It is hard to
accept such conclusions, jet the fig
ures bear Investigation ami analysis.
International Road Convention.
It Is announced that the minister of
public works of Prance has been au
thorized to call an international con
vention in his country in 1008 for the
purpose of considering methods to pre
vent roads from being damaged by ex
cessive automobile traffic. The use of
the automobile. It In claimed, has pro
duced many new problems in connec
tion with the splendid roads for which
France has become famous, and a plan
for their construction and maintenance
is deemed necessary. The delegates
will therefore In particular discuss
methods of adapting present roads to
the new conditions of t rattle.
Canada's Interest In Good Road Plan.
D. Ward King of Maltland, Mo., who
is the head of the tural improvement
department of the American Civic as
sociation, has a drsg log method for
obtaining good roads st the least ex
pense which Is being adopted in the
Canadian provinces. The Farmers Ad
vocnte of London, Oni., is offering $100
In prizes for the best roads made with
a King drag. In a personal letter the
editor wrote: "A widespread interest
has been aroused and many drags con
structed in addition to those used by
our contestants. So far we ara more
than delighted with what we have seen
and heard of the results."

THE GARDEN SCHOOL
Mow Children of Newton War Taught
so Beautify Home O rounds.
Writing In Maxwell's Talisman of
the work of the garden school in New
ton. Mrs. H. A. Elliott says:
An object leason to the cltlsens of
Newton was the garden school con
ducted by the ladles of the Social Sci
ence club of that town during the sum
mer of 1908. Assured by George H.
Maxwell of the Home Crofters' guild of
the Talisman of the free services of an
experienced garden director, provided
the club could defray the further ex
pense of a garden, a committee of five
ladles was appointed from the club to
see what could be done.
First they obtained the use of a
piece of vacant land on Jackson road,
which was then an open grass plot
Then an appeal was made by the com
mittee to the department of agriculture
at Washington for free seeds, which
were promptly sent The committee
sent a circular letter to about fifteen of
the enterprising business men of New
ton telling them of the plans for the
garden school and asking them If they
were sufficiently Interested In the ex
periment to give It some financial sup
port The response was quick, and at the
end of a week we had the required
$100, and the director went to work.
One hundred and six gardens 9 by 85
feet were planted by as many different
children from the Nonantum district
and the names of as many more inter
ested children were placed on the wait
A few of these children, having learn
ed how tinder the direction at the gar
den school, went back to the home
dooryards which had for all time previ
ously been used for dumps, cleared
away the debris, spaded up the earth
and planted seeds which they procured
gratis from the director. The reward
was a scarlet runner at the doorstep, a
row each of lettuce, radishes and beans
and for garden flowers nasturtiums,
sunflowers and sweet alyasum. One
of the boys carried some vegetables
from his home garden Into the exhibi
tion at Horticultural hall and was
awarded a prise. Could these children,
think yon, ever again be contented to
live In a dnmp Instead of a flower gar
den 1 These girls and boys learned the
law of cause and effect; that tbe soil
through healthful, pleasant labor will
produce food supplies sufficient to nour
ish the body; that debris, squalor and
untldlnesafnay be supplanted by clean
liness, order and beauty and many oth
er lessons, not the least of which were
pride in ownership and respect r oth
er people's rights. '
PROUD OF HIS TOWN.
What One Man Is Doing to Improve
One of the most progressive town
officials In the south la Samuel Lan
caster, city engineer of Jackson, Tenn.
Mr. Lancaster thinks there Is no place
like Jackson, and he wants others to
think so, too, and he is doing every
thing In bis power to make It one of
the prettiest towns In the country. It
Is due In a great measure to his ef
forts that good roads are being built in
MadlBon county. But road building 1
not all that has engrossed the big brain
of Sam Lancaster, says a writer in
Breeder's Gazette. As manager of
the waterworks he saw a chance to do
things. Jackson had no park, and near
tbe waterworks there was needed a
raised roadway. Sam Lancaster made
the fill, and before any one knew what
he was up to he bad built a fine lake
on the site whence came tbe earth for
tbe fill. Smaller lakes near by came,
then drives, bridges, boats, lilies (mar
velous lilies), banks of flowers, trees.
An unsightly railway yard adjoined
tbe waterworks. The railway was ask
ed for a few cars of earth. Fresto! Sara
made the yard and the park Join.
Grass, flowers, shrubs, beauty, order,
seats, comfort Inspiration, hope, all
came out of that old sink hole. And
the manager only grinned when he
saw that Sam Lancaster had actually
parked and fenced a part of hi
right of way. Now travelers on that
railway will pass by and say. "Jack
son, Tenn., Is a beautiful place and
must have people of culture within it."
School Gardens In Washington.
Tbe school gnrden movement In
Washington, which started humbly n
few years ago, has so strongly appeal
ed to the children and their parent
thnt with a comparatively llle assist
ance from the public funds It has
thrived amazingly. Already n marked
chanpo Is observable not only In the
Immediate surroundings of the school
buildings themselves, but In all parts
of tbe town at the homes of the little
ones. They have been taught plant
love In terms which have In many
cases never been presented to them be
fore. By their personal participation in
the work of making gardens, in prepar
ing tbe ground, selecting and planting
the seeds, caring for the spron's and
the plants and finally plucking tli
blooms of their own cultivation they
have gained a sense of responsibility
which makes for th? t.:i;rovement of
tbe whole town.

LIKE A ROMAN ROAD.
Haw a Chicago Millionaire Uses Rocks
on His New Hampshire Farm.
J. Glesaner, the Chicago millionaire,
who has made his summer home in
Bethlehem; N. H., for the last twenty
four years, is rapidly attaining fame
as a road builder, says a Bethlehem
correspondent of the Chicago Record
Herald. He Is now able to show three
miles of probably the finest road In the
White mountains, all within or adjoin
ing his own estate and all public road,
although It was all built or built over
by Mr. Glessner at his own expense.
During the late autumn he bad con
structed a half mile of road on the
main highway from Bethlehem to Lit
tleton and during most of that time
bad a crew of seventy men, thirty
horses and twenty oxen engaged on
the work. Fart of this road looks like
pictures of the modern French or the
old Roman roads, and it is built fully
as solidly as the Roman roads used to
be In fact, after the same plan.
The most Important work done on
the Littleton-Bethlehem road by Mr.
Glessner this yonr has been an ex
tensive fill of quite a stretch of road
over some lowland where bad travel
ing had generally been the rule. At
the lowest place the road was filled In
six feet with stone, and the stone
wall on each side was carried three
feet higher, the wall in places being
ten feet higher on the back side, or
side toward the fields. Tbe wall Is
three feet wide on top and Is strong

actual test can pass abreast This
wall extends for 400 feet and at oue
part descrlles a beautiful curve. Un
less it Is desired to make a fill on ex
cavation of several feet Is first made,
and Mr. Glessner's men and oxen then
begin to dump in immense stones tak
en out of the nearest fields. A fairly
level course is made of these, and then
another layer of somewhat smaller
stone Is dumped on.
Then comes a still smaller layer, and
then, last, tbe stonework Is leveled op
and all openings are filled In with very
small stone, so carefully and thorough
ly placed that animals can be driven
over without hurtiug their feet Then
the rock la entirely covered and the
road Anally shaped up with a good
layer of "bardpan," which packs solid
and is practically Impervious to water.
Drainage at each side Is always pro
vided for, the roads are well rounded,
and these features, combined with the
solid foundation of rock underneath
and tbe impervious layer on top, give
an ideal road.

that if her churn Is sour It will taint the

a churn. In the stomach and digestive

The evil of a foul stomach is not alone
the bad taste In the mouth and the foul
