Earth Roads. 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 in winter. 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. Attracting Immigrants. 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.
