Tho rural, commcrclnl and Industrial
Interests of thla country liavo becu nel

nnlH nnd raJIronda to transport their
product to ranrkot that they havo hu

ngo-tliey displayed obstinate antipathy
to help any movement In favor of Im
proving tho country's highways.
Tlio ilrat systematic moveraont mudo
to Improve tho country's highways wan

cooperation of fnrrriers nnd others In
terested In having good roads to haul
their produce over.
The Automobile Club of America has
Inaugurated it movement which Is caN
eulated to effect a revolution In inland
transportation If It meets with tho sup
port It deserves. A few months ago
General Roy Stone, who lias made a.
special study of rondmaklng, In nn ad
dress before tbe Automobile Club of
America strongly advocated tho uso of
uninini.H for making hlcbwuys. Ills
arguments were so convincing that
Jir. wunni-a ji. bw"""! v- --
the United States Steel corporaUon, of
fered to jirovldo at Hila ojra cxpenso
steel sufficient to lay a mile of tlid
roadway recommended by General
Stone. One block" of that steel baa
been laid in Murwy street. New York,
n street noted for its heavy traffic, and
tests of tho road were recently made.
The results were a remarkable demon
stration of tbe value of the system.
It was found by actual experiment
that a tractive lorcc w per ccm great
er was required to draw a load upon
tho rough st6no pavement than upon
the track or that, taking the power ncc
cpnnry to draw the load upon the pave
ment ns the standard, exactly ZlVi per
cqnt of It was saved by using the rails.
In starting the load tbo advantago In
.... n tim mils was even crcatcr, as
but onc-liatf or one-thlrd pC tho usual
force was required.'
The steel rails used in building thcao
blghwavs nro forty feet In length and
a foot Iu width. Tbo upper surfac6 ii
not polished. It ii a rough finish, but
not corrugated nor especially rough
ened in any way. The section of tho
raits Is like that of an ordluary chan
nel bar, tlio turned down portions nt
cither side being nbout ooo and a halC
Inches lu depth. Coarso broken stono
laid In a trench about flftceij 'inches
deep and of tbo samp width constitutes
the bed upou which tho rails rest A
drain tlto ut tho outer 'ftlgo of tho bot
tom of each trench psurea sufficient
On top of tho broken Btone a Iaycc
of gravel or very flno stono and stono
dust is laid, in which the rails Imbed
themselves llrmly.' Joints, consisting
of flat plates of Btcel rlvotcd to each
rail under the wide tread and heavy
Ush plates, bolted to the furned down
portions of tho rails on pacb fcide, af
ford a continuous nnd smooth nurfnee.
To prevont spreading of tho rills there
are Interted In tho roadbed t intervals
steel ties bent bo as to cfcwg.tto rails
and hold them securely In plaee.
Every person familiar with teaming
Js aware of tho great reduction p wheel
resistance that rcaultn from, tho whech?
of a wagon being run on tho plates at
tached to street car rails. If tho day,
ever comes that tho country roads aro
lnld with steel runways, tho saving to
people who imvo to haul freight over,
the roads will 'be Immense. Expert
uicnts made by engineers of high repu
tation Imvo shown that a horse can
haul on an Iron or steel track flfty-fouft
times the load It can haul In sand, thirty-six
times ns much as oa an earth
road, tiilrty-thrco times as much as on
stono trackway, twenty-five times as
much as on a planlc road la good order,
nud nlno times as much as on a good
macadam road. Most of tho roads that
farmers have to haul their produce over
nro earth roads, so tho chango to steel
would lncrcaso tho haulngo eighteen
times. The introduction of such an im
provement ought to draw tho cordial
co-operntlou of ovcry person who wishes
to sec our agricultural communities
prospering as they should prosper.
General Stono suvs that this style of
roadway can bo hvld down, for about
f 1,000 n mile ntul Uut this character of
road Is aa practicable for country ns
city uses aad that the cost would bo no
more than for ordinary stone roads.
