for blastlug such material Is n welcome
relief. Doth rock und hard clay may
be loosened In the cut by well placed

bank nud loaded. Careful spacing and
loading for electrically Drcd blasts will

mlto is also very effective, while stumps
mdy bo blasted from the roadbed justJ
as though they were being removed
from n field to be cleared and cultivated.
Boulders also are easily shattered by
suitable loading and when of hard rock
may bo crushed Into surfacing stone.
Tho side ditches an well as the long
outfall ditches can also bo blasted In
