Smith Amberg a r s t ra I 1BTMELI8u1D III TQC YEAR 18- 50Iiiii lops4 Dirt Etils D Ward King a good roads expert employed by the State of Mis sours to lecture on this subject and to agitate the improvement of roads and whose work we have seen de monstrated with excellent results 1mI ti We hope every farmer in our ter ritory will give this a trial THE PROBLEM The problem given is the seUor dirt road It is worked occasion ally by being ploughed on each side and the loose dirt thrown up toward the middle making a more or less symmetrical oval sloping to the ditch on either side In good weather when the rains ac not frequent or heavy the ruts will be cut down by the wagon traffic In rainy weather and in the spring and fall the ruts arc full of water and the mud holes arc worn into the surface and made deeper by every new wagon track The water that makes mudholes Is held in by the bottom and sides of dryer earth or a frozen surface If the water can run off it will do so The problem then Is to make a smooth surface so that the water will run off Then of course theretwill be no mudhole TilE SOWTloW Any man or boy can make a drag 5 in less than two hours Get a log eight feet long andtwcl ve inches in diameter Split It In halves Bore three twoInch holes1r in each halfone at each end and one in the middle Join the halves t split sides forward with good strong braces about three feet loRe wedge them in securely If a log is not handy UM a twelve inch plank Reinforce the back with a 2x6 A twv fiau un waica to ride is placed across the braces Wrap one end of the chain around an tnd stake carry it ever the top of the slab out to the deuble trees and then back to the other end of the slab where it should be fastened by poking an old bolt or spike through one of the links into a hole bored three or tour inches from the end of the slab and about its center i up and down Hitch up and dragat an angle of fortyfive degree ami you will be surprised at the results now TO USB TUB MUO First make the drag and hove a fourhorse evener ready far use the first time Wait until your roods are very soft the wetter and softer the better Then attach four horses straddle the righthand rut acd be gin to drag Then turn and come back along the other rut Do not hurry j drive slowly the slower the better The effect of this first drag ging will be to fill up the ruts and to make a moderately smooth surface on which it is possible to make three tracks one on each side and one where the old track used to be This smooth surface will shed water partially at least and will give free access to the sun ani wind causing to dry off quicker than the rough surface on either side of the smoothed space When it begins to dry off take two horses and go over the same track again This will still further puddle the day and carry a little more into the middle of the road which every team will both puddle and compact still more If you with to widen the road wait until after another rain and then when it has dried off sufficiently to plow readily one furrow along the outer mark of the drag take the drag and spread this smoothly over the surface of the road in this way the road will be widened by the width of the furrow and will gradually become oval that is higher in the I middle and each time the drag is used will become a little smoother and a little harder If the road is still too narrow plow another and so on until the road has been widen ed as much as you wish oj K t f A t I i I I I It II + IIIU t +an s UIIUMlII 1 II THE A Sof E COLUMN I II I III t I III J 1 1111 BY MR J H SAUNDKAS About the only thing that retards our movement Is the foot that farmI t ets lack oonfldena IN themselves 11 And yet there is not a luau of pcI pie on earth that ought to have More confidence in themselves Theyi have accomplished more and failed less than any other clans Who they have done in the put prow that they can do whatever they choose it only requires united effort j It was principally farmers who gained our independence in 1776 The fanners rallied round the liaR s ner of Starks Sinclair and Gates to capture Burgoyne Rushing from their fields they swelled the Ameri can ranks until Burgoyne was bear med in and compelled to surrender This was the turning point Of the i Revolutionary war in the north In the same way our southern farmers I nlle4 their forcos under Shelby and other farmer colonels at Kings WI f a i turned the tide of war in the t s uh After the war WM over they I t tLxedthm elTM to protect the in t + li it it duitriei of the New England States and changed the capital of t ir country from commerce to man i v failures Wo are nsw the leading manufacturing country of the world and it is ample time that the farmers should look to their own interests I i Akin to a lade of confidence iny themselves is a lade of conMenee Ila each other The world has confi dtnre in farmers lot farmers art lusficic us of farmers We do not knew why this is unleee U is bemuse ot a cuoj n trait illustrated by the r 4 4sayug i Christ that A prophet te not without honor save in Ms own oountry This lack of confidence in themselves makes then doubt the ability of those of their own calling All this is without a shadow of foun dation Mechanic and manufac f t turera were once equally as suspi cious of each ether hone the old adage two of a trade out never agre Trades Unions and coop erui n nave destroyed all this nar row pessimistic suepidon and mt chants artisans sad tradesmen an wcikiDK together in perfect harmony Proie iiional min were equally u bet HgTr among themaelvesuntil they were associated in teachers institute educational and medical aeeodaiions and kindred gatherings until they seethe folly of their narrow distrust The worlds greatest achievement have been made by farmers and in this regard history will repeat Itself gapers must educate themselves 1 tj IH BIMJ eariesely stand upon the high places toe importance of their lkng IsI vita them to occupy But thery number of pole en aged in farming make them fear each other Many hold aloof for ear that all the farmers will sot mite Suppose you were driving a ix muse team

statesmen Hoke Smiths sub t ma1dnctint j u price Among other things Mr Smith said The farmer must haveII on his farm his own cottonseed prepared I for the protection of his owntt cotton just as he his his own crib in which to take care of his corn or his barn in which to take care of Ida hay He must sell his cotton through j the year month by month and nott dump it all on the markot as soon alII illis ginned The men who raise cotton must be furnished with knowl edge of its true value and steadily I move the price up to 12 cents a I pound The farmer should be in formed of the true value of his cot toneHe should reach a decision as to the price ii is worth and he should J not icU until he receives that price j lwet L M t of letting the man who teat the out ton tu selfI leave to the man w H

if governors and exgovern ors cabinet officers and excabine omcers and farmers by the hundred of thousands are already in the fief arguing that the farmer has the rlgh and ought to have the power to

know that boys are much more particular who thty go with than girls are You may think this is a strange statement but it is so A girl will go on the streets with a boy that gets drunk but If a boy finds out that the girl gets drunk he would not go with her We wish our girls would be as particular about whom they go with as the boys are Be as careful to keep the weeds out of the minds of your children as you are to keep them out of your garden But remember something will grow there If you dont plant them with good grain the tares will root in spite of you Keep a library of good clean books and by all means keep your home paper be fore them If young boys and girls could only understand how happy it makes thclrII parents when they are doingwell and conducting themselves like ladielII and gentlemen it seems to us they would make a greater effort thanI they do to avoid evil deeds and acts A greater part of the pleasures in this life to parents is found in the saccess and welfare of their children going out of their home And much of the misery is caused by waywardness and misdeeds of sons and daughters If there is one thing above another that a young man should be ashamed of doing it is loafing with out aim purpose or profit on the streets or In stores day after day aU week If you have nothing to do stay at homea part of the time at any rate No young man with any

bask ing In the sunset of a well spent life theywere as devoted to each other as when the honeymoon first shown in their pathway We could not but compliment our friend upon his devotion to his aged companion and in reply be said to us You mistake me if you think age hasI blotted out my heart The silver hair falls over a brow all furrowed yet I am a lover still I love allI nature and I love yon aged dame Look at her Her face is careworn but it has ever held a smile for me Often have I shared the same bitter cup with her and soI shared it seems almost sweet Years of sickness have stolen the freshness of life i but like the faded rose the perfume of her I love is richer than when in the lull bloom of youth andI maturity Together we have wept over graves Through sunshine andI storm we have clung together andI new she sits with her knitting her cap quaintly frilled the old style kerchief crossed white and prim above the heart that beat so long and true for me i the dim blue eyes that shrinkingly front the glad day the sunlight throwing parting farewell kisses her brow and leaves upon it faint tracing of wrinkles an angelic radiance I see tho no one else can the bright glad young face that won me first and the glowing love of forty years thrills thru my heart till years come Tho this form be bowed God imparts eternal life within Let the ear be deaf the eye blind the hinds palsied the limbs withered the brain clouded yet the heartthe true heart may hold such wealth of love that flowers of death and the victorious grave shall be able to put out this quenchless flame As we meandered home we could but think what a heaven upon earth this would be if such devotion existed between all who had taken the marriagevow To such a couple the mellow rays of lifes sunset are the
