A road should not be wider than
25 feet. An ordinary rain will
never hurt a road, but the storm
waters and snow thawing in Bpring
will cat and wash out the roads;
therefore the roads should not be
made over 25 feet wide, so that the
center of the road is close enough
to the ditches to give the falling
waters a chance to reach them.
The center of a road should not be
more than two feet higher than the
bottom of the ditches; if the center
is higher a loaded wagon will slide
into the ditch if the road is frozen
I also find that in a long slope,
say one-half mile long, or longer,
and where the road is higher on one
side than on the other, a culvert
pipe should be put in every 40 rods
to lead the water into the lower
ditch, as the higher side of the road
gathers more water. For culverts
nothing but sewer tile should be
used. When putting in a culvert
a man should always take into con
sideration the amount of water it
has to carry, and whether the ground
to be drained is more level or slop
ing. If the ground is more on the
level a small tile, by giving it the
proper fall, will take care of an im
mense amount of water; but on
sloping ground it will take a much
larger culver, as the water comes
rushing down the hills, and if the
culvert is too small and has not the
proper fall, tli3 water will run over
the road. The culverts should not
be laid too deep, to keep them from
clogging, but the dirt on t p of the
culvert should be higher than the
adjacent ground, so that in case the
water should bia'seover it will not
disturb the cul e 't.
A road bed 25 feet wide is wide
enough, even on a hillside. It is
true a deep ditch will wash out on
both sides, but as the road wears
down it will also wash in the cen
ter Then in repairing the road the
dirt should not be dragged into the
center of the road, but should he
carried to the sides and dumped in
to the ditches. I have done this
several times and find it satisfac
tory. This will lower the road, but
will leave it high and hard in the
center if the roads are laid out in
the center where they belong, and
are made straight and given the
right width, and culverts are put in
wherever they are necessary, and
put in right and the right kind of
material, and the roads are kept i..
repair. Then, if the state will pass
a law to aid the counties and town
ships iu making macadamized road?,
the roadbed will be m such a shape
that the gravel or rock may be ap
plied at once, and will insure a great
saving to the community as well as
.a lasting improvement.
North Carolina Railroads.
The Corporation Commifsion's re
port to Gov Glenn contains the fol
lowing interesting ngures:
There are-now -3,859 miles of
railroad in the state, an increase of
fifty-nine miles over the preceding
year. The total valuation is $6!,
573,334. During the year 1905
there were 5,589,500 passengers car
ried by the steam railways of the
state. The passenger earnings
amounted to $5,384,903 by the
three principal systems of the stat'J
divided as follows: beabord Air Line,
$879,667; Atlantic Coast Line,
$1,432,794; Southern, $3,072,442.
There are 15,877 employees of the
railways in the state to whom an
aggregate- in wages is paid of $46,
758,167 per annum.
Representatives of the Southern
Railway's Industrial department
recently visited Salisbury with a
view to purchasing hve or six hun
dred acres of land upon which to
settle desirable immigrants. Messrs
M V Richards and Welber McKoy
industrial agents of the South
em and Atlantic Coast line systems
conferred with the State officials
Monday with reference to the
movement to attract immigrats to
North Carolina. These gentlemen
dhcouraged the plan of landing im
migrants at Norfolk and also the
idea of sending a agent to Europe
to book immigrants, but advise that
the better results may be acquired
by an extensive ad rertising campaign
presenting the agricultural and
commercial resources of the State.
One would think the Laxative
idea in a cough syrup should have
been advanced long before it was.
It seems the only rational remedy
for Coughs and Colds would be to
move the bowels and clean the
mucous membranes of the throat
and lungs at the same time. Ken
nedy's Laxative Honey and Tar
does this. It is the Original Laxa
tive Cough Sprup, the best known
remedy for Coughs, Lolds, Croup,
Whooping Cough, etc. Tastes
good and harmless. Sold by Stand
