would not exceed one-quarter of what

tbe road one should not plow it up like
a field, but displace only what earth
is necessary to bring tbe road to the
proper grade and side slope. In ob
serving these matters years are saved
lu making a perfect roadbed.
Earth rouds ure the most delightful
of all roads wheu well graded and free
from dust All well graded roads can
be wonderfully improved and tbe up
keep lessened one-half by covering the
top with a coating of about two inches
of sharp sand and clay In which may
be mixed half crushed stone that will
go through a one Inch mesh. If sand
and clay are used, mix In tbe propor
tion of SO per cent of sand and 20 per
cent of clay. If crushed stone Is used,
mix It balf and half with tbe sand and
clay mixture. This coating should be
spread on and harrowed and rolled tin
til It Is thoroughly mixed and packed
so as to fill all tbe voids, and then it
will shed the water like a roof and
keep your roadbed dry. In half an
hour after a bard rain you will bave

sprinkling with a mixture made of
crude petroleum In tbe proportion of
one barrel of oil to three barrels of
water emulsified wltb tbe soluble part

Make Parka of tho Waste Plaoaa.
Utilize the waste places In your city.
Turn them Into parks for tbe people.
This Is tbe advice of experts in "city
beautiful" movements everywhere.
Waste places serve no good purpose.
Tbey are frequently a danger and
menace to tbe health and are always
unpleasant to look upon. By trans
forming tbem into parks two good
ends are attained. They no longer can
be used as dumping grounds for refuse
and become instead of real service as
a recreatlou spot for the public. The
cost of this transformation is negligi
ble, and every community should con
sider the question and the benefits
that will accrue.
