Tarring of Road.
Road tarring Is becoming a habit in
the automobile districts of England.
The old method of applying with hand
brushes is now being abandoned In fa
vor of the use of an apparatus which
is nothing more or less than a Riant
air brush. The tar is in a large tank,
and two men pump air Into It, while a
third goes about the road with a pipe
having four ouUets through which the
air throws the tar in fine spray. This
rapidly and thoroughly coats the road.
Sand is then sprinkled, and the dust
is laid for good.
Kodol digests all the food you eat.
If you will take Kodol for a little
while you will no longer hare Indi
gestion. It Is pleasant to take, acts
promptly. Sold by Sabtn's drag
