OKKIINAL OBJgCT OF U8IC OF OIL ON ROADS.
Ah already stated, the original motive
ior i ne use or crude oil on roads was to
lay the dust. Wherever oil has been
. tried this purpose has invariably been
accomplished, regardless of methods
adopted or variety of oil used. On all
kiiuU of roads where it has been applied
the dust has ceased absolutely for at
it-nst an entire season after its applica
tion, and if renewed a second year, has
lieen abated for that year also and the
snowing, wnetiier then treated or not,
In southern California all unite in sav
ing t'mt the great bane of life dust
pasted away wherever the first applica
tion of oir was made. The dust raised
by passing travel no longer cornea in at
windows or destroys the product of field
and orchard for considerable widths on
each side of the road, as it formerly did.
The report of its effectiveness as a dust
layer is jjist as positive and enthusiastic
fr m all sections which have made the
HKXEFITH FROM TI1K USE OF OIL ON BOADS.
Iii California it was Boon learned that,
incalculably valuable as it was, the lay
ing of dust was not the only or even the
nuwt extraordinary result obtained.
it was lound that when oil was applied
it immediately began to bind together
... '""s". parucies constituting the
roau surface, whether clay, sandy loam,
loose mud, gravel, or the fine material
on the top of macadam. A tough strat

clayey duct, no matter how deep, where
trotung with a buggy was impossible
mm ior a psirni strong norgeB to pull a

iiiuuiateu. rttuient and firm, so that
driving teams ci uld trot with ease and
uie tame pu r ot dories pull 2 tons
more comfj tab y than they formerly
uiu uie .me u ii. ji course, these re
sults were not fully obtained immedi
ately, but they never failed to follow
peritMont treatment with oil.
At first, while this oiled sulfate strat
um was thin, it was often broken
through, etpe. tally in wet weather, but
, proper repan s and subsequent applica
tions of oil thickened and strengthened
it until it would at all times effectually
, withstand the heaviest and most con
iiunuing couth from the railroad
track in the town of Chino.San Bernar
dino county, Cat., is a piece of road
over w hich ery season nearly 40,000
tons o sugar lioets are hauled on their
way to the factory, often averaging 750
tons a day." The foundation of this
road is a loose sand, and it has been
miriacea with a material containing
hic formerly uie loaded wag
ons often stalled and had to be dug out.
aow, alter three seasons of treatment
with oil, the road is as easy to' drive
over as a good cny street, and effect
ually sustains the heavy travel, although
the majority of the wagons used on it
have narrow tires The benefits of the
on were experienced immediately after
the first application was made, bnt the
Buriace stratum under successive treat
ments grew thicker and firmer until the
roau nas become virtually perfect.
In another place in the same ronntv
several miles distant from the one just
described, the-road runs over drifting
sand just like the worst to be found on
Cape Coil iu Massachusetts. It has
wen treated lor two seasons with oil,
and is now equally as good as the other,
iith pieces of road were visited and
caretuiiy examined by the writer, who
can testify to the almost incredibly
Buuoiaciory results obtained.
OBJECTIONS TO CHE OF OIL ON ROADS.
hen thev first beiran tn nan nil m,
roads in California there was much
speculation as to whether it would nnt
be found objectionable; but when prop
erly applied, and suitable precautions
were taken not to use the road before it
was ready, the theoretical objections
vauisiiea. vt nen oil was placed upon
the surface of the road, if vehicles were
allowed to run over it before it had
sunn in and become thoroughly incor
porated with the road material the
wheels picked up the oil and threw it in
all directions, injuring clothing, and
everything else- of a delicate nature
I'POIl Which It fell. After exneriemw
has taught how to avoid this, no further
serious difficulties manifested them
ibere does -not appear to be such a
thing as dust from an oiled road. .Of
course, dust irom outside may blow on
to an oiled road, but this soon adheres
lotne oiled surface and ceases to rise
' ao ueieruiiiie wnetneroiien rnnri ma.
terial would produce a stain the writer
repeatedly scraped up some from the
surface ot a road which had been treated
some months before and blaeed it in a
clean, white handkerchief. Taking the
corners of the handkerchief in the left
hand, the ball of dirt was turned by the
right hand, so as to compress the con
tents as the housewife does her fruit
pulp when making jelly." After turning
man uie compression was carried as tar
as the strength of the handkerchief
would permit, the ball was manipulated
oy uie nuiil ijaud for a moment or two
Then retaining one corner of the hand-
Kerchief in the left hand, the others
were dropped and the handkerchief
thoroughly shaken. None of the ma
terial adhered to the handkerchief and
no discoloration could be detected.
The mim from oil-treated roads. after
the oil has become thoroughly diffused
through the material, does not appear
to be more objectionable than ordinary
Diligent inouiries about the effect of
oiled roads ou rubber tires failed to dis
close any complaints, except in cases
where the tire had come in direct con
tact with the oil. So far from being
injurious, tne claim is made by some
that., the resiliency of an oiled road
surface and the protection airainst the
sharp edges of sand and gravel increase
tne uie of rubber tires very materially.
It has not been uncommon for annual t
pavements in cities to become softened
by the heat of the sun to such a degree
as to be injured by tiie wheels of heavily
loaded wagons. Ho dillicultv of thin
character is ever experienced with the
surface of an oiled road.
For a'short time after oil is annlied
there is a very perceptible odor, which I
soon disappears almost entirely. While
it lasts it is not essentially disagreeable.
1 i ii ir.-i. '
biiu many people rainer HKB it.
An inciueotai advantage ot on on
roads is the help to the eyes. The
reflection of the sun from white road
surfaces and the dust blown into the
eyes are both very trying to the eyesight
Oiling gives the road a seal brown color,
in California oil is found to be very
aimcnity ts quickly remedied- In mak
ing repairs wheu fresh material ia
required, care should be exercised not
to use any which has been subjected to
iu una reiuae ill it.
It frequently happens that travel
follows the same track, and the narrow
vims ana teet of the horses wear depres
sions, it is important to correct these
and reshape the road at least once a
year. It has been found that an ordi
nary blade road grader will not Hn )).:

had mort experience with it have come
to regard its use in a dry region as the

generally called waterspouts. In Cali
fornia ttiese have in many placea sub

'The whole country was flooded and

there is a road running into San Ber

there was a good oiled surface. The
water rushed down the middle of that
road, because the ditches could not

piake a scratch on the road, but a half

the same grade which was so badlv

tne road stiriace under travel, and
causes it to break through in spots.
After the road LaB been DronerltH
shaped it should be given a thorough
soaxing wiin a road sprinkler and rolled
with a light roller. The purpose of this
is to insure uniform consistency and a
fit iu foundation. It should then be
left undisturbed, if possible, until the
water dries out. Many roads have been
oiled and excellent results obtained
without any wetting or rolling, but the
practice described is the best where - the
facilities are obtainable.,
A soil which after being wet tends
under travel to pack firmly, but ia still
sufficiently porous to let water drain
through, is ideal for treatment with oil.
A clay that bakea and then pulverizes
into tine duet under the wheels will
only give good results when some ma
terial is auueu, as explained later. .
After the road surface has become I
dry it is feasible, to run a sharp-toothed
harrow over it. so as to loosen it to a
depth of three inches. The aim is to
secure an oil crust three inches thick.

V ery few persons stop to think what
an important position cats hold in the
economy of nature. In some parts of
the country, notably in Southern l!al
fornia it is absolutely necessary to have
cats to successfully raise cattle. - Th
cows feed on red clover, which makes
a superior quality ot beef.. This clover
grew very sparingly until it was din
covered that one farmer who had raised
a large number of tabby cats had fine"
clover fields. Investigation Droved that
too cais amen tne oeid mice, which
killed the wild bees, which fertilized the
the clover seeds by carrying the pollen
from flower to flower, thus causimr the
se(d to sprout thickly every year. Now
all the farmers in that country havo
many cats. If some one could discover
a cat that. could kill prairie dogs it would
prove a great blessing to this country.
