Tbe mjmMng inacblue U unquestiona

of tbe clan being built In Ontario, aaya
the commlnsloner of highways In Onta
rio, Canada. In bin ninth annunl report.
A road grader Is a necessity In every
township where good roads are being
constructed. By their use the cost of
grading the roads Is greatly reduced
and a great Improvement In the mak
ing and repair of roads Is effected.
They are of greatest altie In town
ships where gravel and broken stone
are not to be had and dependence must
be placed on earth roads. At the same
time they are none the less a necessity
In the construction and repair of gravel
and broken stone roads, and even
among stumps and stones when proper
ly bandied they work In a most sur
prising manner. It Is not their use
which It now seems necessary to urge,
bit rather there Is need of guarding
against their misuse.
A matter of first Importance In mak
ing good use of a grader Is to plan the
season's work In advance. The town
ship road commissioners, councilors or
a committee of tbe council, according
to the local system of road manage-,
ment, should go over the roads early in
the year and determine what grading
la required. This work should be stak
ed out according to the definite width
and dimensions of roads as require by
township regulations. The grader when
it commences in the spring should pro
ceed to each piece of work consecutive
ly and should be In use continuously
until the grading la done for that year.
In some townships it Is customary
for the grading machines to go here
and there over the township without
method one day on one side of the
township, next day on tbe opposite
side, then to another distant part,
backward and forward, wasting a con
siderable part of the wages of men and
teams In moving from one part of the
township to another. By following a
well considered schedule the cost of
moving the machine between different
pieces of work la reduced to a mini
mum. Arrangements should be made every
spring to have tbe grader in use as
soon as the ground is sufficiently dry.
The soil la then In its best condition for
manipulation, having been mellowed
by frost The roads are rough and
most in need of treatment. Roads
which are properly graded early In
spring are at once compacted by traf
fic, and they wtll remain in their best
condition all summvr. If the work U
left until late in the season clay soils
become baked and hardened, difficult
to handle and rough when, finished.
Sandy soils If loosened up late In the
year will be much more dusty than If
treated early in the spring, when they
are damp and readily compacted by
One of the first essentials In provid
ing that the roads will be properly
graded is to select the right man to
operate tbe grader. He should be ac
tive and energetic, with some mechan
ical experience, one who will take an
Interest In his work, who will make a
study of roadmaklng and who will be
willing to follow the Instructions given
him by the township road commission
er or councilor having supervision of
the work. When such a man Is found
he should be engaged from year to
year, so that his growing experience
will render him more efficient.
The same horses should be used in
operating the grader for an entire sea
son at least "Green" horses are very
awkward, will not pull together, waste
much time, and even a reliable man as
operator cannot under such circum
stances perform good work. Horses
used continuously become accustomed
to the work, to each other, to the driver
and will produce much better results.
Borne townships Instead of horses use
a traction engine for certain work.
Where one can be rented from a local
thrasher lt can usually be obtained
very cheaply In the early part of the
year. Where a considerable stretch
has to be graded without turning, as In
cutting off the shoulders of old gravel
roads, a traction engine is much pref
erable to horses. It is more steady. ',
The township regulations as to the
width and dimensions of the road
should be closely followed In grading.
These generally provide for a width of
twenty-four feet between the inside
edges of the open drains on roads of
greatest travel, twenty feet on roads of
moderate travel and eighteen feet on
roads of least travel. A rise of from
one-half an Inch to one inch to the foot
from the inside edge of the drain to the
center of the road Is ample crown for a
new road after the gravel or stone has
been placed on it More than this la
unnecessary and an injury. There Is a
tendency in the use of graders to
crown roads excessively, and this
should be guarded against.
Where gravel or stone Is regularly
used for surfacing roads only such an
extent of new road should be graded as
can be metaled and otherwise complet
ed in the one summer. If this Is not
done the work of grading has practl
cally to be done orerWi many cases beJ
fore gravel can be applied, as tbe road
trill be so much cut by trafflo and)
washed out by rains and freshets of
the ensuing wet seasons. In addition!
the road Is left In a very soft condij
tion, readily turning lt Into a 6eej
lough of mud. Tbe Ideal method1 (of
making a good road for trafflo and. for
conserving the road metal Is to roll
down and consolidate the grade as left
by the grader. On this should be plao
ed a layer of broken stone and this Is
turn rolled down for traffic.
