TO MAINTAIN GRAVEL ROADS
Never Hard and Smooth Enough to
Prevent Immediate Rutting by
Wheels of Wagons,
Gravel roads are never hard and
smooth 'enough when opened to travel
to prevent almost Immediate rutting by
tie wheels of heavily loaded wagons.
In fact, .a gravel which contains enough
clay to pack Immediately under the
roller or in a few days under travel
will always prove to give a muddy
road when the frost Is going out In the
spring and during prolonged wet spells
at other seasons of the year. If such
gravels are found on a road they can
be greatly Improved by covering the
surface with a thin layer of sandy
gravel, applied when the road Is soft
and allowed to mix under travel, the
road being kept smooth by the frequent
use of the road drag.
On any gravel road, dragging with
a suitable road drag should begin after
the first good rain following the com completion
pletion completion of the road and be continued
after each subsequent rain until the

road surface becomes so hard and
smooth that' heavily loaded wagons
make no impression on the surface.
But dragging must be frequent the
first fall until winter sets In and the
following spring until the middle of
May or the first of June. After, thai
the dragging will not be very effective,
unless the rains are of long enough
duration to soften the. surface slightly,
and may therefore be less frequent.
But dragging will be found very effec effective
tive effective and efficient In the late fall and
In the spring when the frost Is coming
out and before the gravel is fully set settled.

Jones, and John was a good boy and
hated all feminine gender, except one
very pretty .little girl, and John's girl
loved him about as much, as he loved
her. (They must have loved each other
a good deal). So one clear, moonlight
night, John thought he would take his
beloved to church. The carriage was
small and when two sat in the same
seat it made very close quarters. So
when they started home John realized
how close he was to her and how pret pretty
ty pretty she was, and he wanted to make up
his mind to ask her to marry him, but
every time he started to a big lump
of air came in his throat. Finally,
after swallowing several lumps of air
he managed to spring the word, and
she immediately answered -him yes,
and then he became as silent as a
