The best treatment for indigestion
and troubles of the stomach is to
rpt the stomach. It can be rested
by starvation or by the use of a good
digestant which will digest the food
eaten, thus taking the work off the
stomach. At the proper tempera
ture, a single teaspoonful of Kodol
will wholly digest 3,000 grains of
food. It relieves the present an
noyance, puts the stomach in shape
to satisfactorily perform its func
tions. Good for indigestion, sour
stomach, flatulence, palpitation of
tne heart and dyspepsia. Kodol is
made in strict conformity with the
National Pure Food and Drug Law.

rays tx dispatch from Trenton, X. J.
Commissioner Ilutcuiuson will during
(!k summer exiieriinent with the Use
i;f aiplialt instead of macadam for
building country roads. The roads
Imilt of this material in the rural dis
tricts wiil not be like the smooth sur
faced street pavement of the city
streets, but will resemble the macadam
roads in tli.it they will have small
j broken stones for iheir principal com
poneiit, ami these will be bound solidly
together by asphalt. This will present
a hard surface from which there will
be no wearing of small particles to be
whirled in clouds of dust In the faces
of travelers and in the homes of bor
t'ommisslouor Hutchinson's experi
ments have attracted the attention of
road builders all over the United
States, who are watching the result
Willi the deepest Interest. Mr. Hutch
inson asserts that the asphalt country
road will cost no more than the mac
adam, and that its wearing qualities
will surpass those of the material at
present commonly used.
Within the last few months Commis
sioner Hutchinson has beeu bobbing up
most unexpectedly at the scenes of
new road operations in different parts
of the state. This is the result of the
1 recent acquisition by his ' department
! of an automobile, which enables the
commissioner to keep his eye on new
j road work much more readily than he
could before. Contractors and inspeet-
receive no notice of the commis-
Iu several counties Commissioner
Hutchinson has pounced down upon
derelict contractors and Inspectors, and
he has not hesitated to call the atten
tion of boards of freeholders to the
conditions that 1m found, and In some
Instances he has exercised his authority
of withholding the state's money until
,Ue w"'k Wlls properly done
-'"imissioner Hutchinson is at pres
eut paying particular attention to ap
plications presented to him for new
roads, lie insists that only the most
traveled roads be Improved, and in this
way instead of building roads that will
benefit only a small section he Is ac
complishing the joining of the chain of
macadam roads crossing the state iu
all directions. This encourages auto
uiobiling, and In consequence the state
treasury is enriched the more by the
Increase of the receipts of its auto
mobile department. The day of the
narrow macadam road, ten and twelve
feet in width, has passed, and Com
missioner Ilutchlnsou now enforces
strictly the rule that ho laid down
when he entered upon his offlee that
no road less than sixteen feet In width
be built in New Jersey.
State IIlKliwny Department.
Virginia is to have a state highway
department. The bill, which has passed
the senate, provides for a state
highway commissioner, to be appointed
by the governor and confirmed by the
legislature, ami fin assistant, both of
whom must be civil engineers, and
the commissioner, together with the
professors of engineering in the Uni
versity of Virginia, the Military Insti
tute and the Polytechnic Institute, are
to constitute the highway commission.
Local authorities are to apply to the
commissioner when they desire perma
nent road improvement, and on his ad
vice the work will be undertaken. The
county Is to supply necessary materials
aud tools, and the state will supply
convict labor free of cost to the local
ity. The first year will necessarily be
largely devoted to preparation and or
ganization, after which a liberal state
aid measure is expected.
Adopt the Count 7 Road S ret em.
One-half of the taxes la the village
of Munlsiug, Mich., Is paid by the
Cleveland Cliffs Iron company. This
company has agreed to expend $1 for
every dollar raised by the village for
permanent street Improvements, so
that, In fact, three-fourths of the cost
of street Improvements will be paid by
the company. Alger county, In which
Munlslng Is located, has, following the
lead of the Cleveland Cliffs Iron com
pany, adopted the county road system
and voted to raise $100,000 for road
Improvement in the county.
Drasa-lnaj Sooth Kansas Road.
The three rural route carriers from
Wellesvllle, Kan., report forty miles of
dragged roads on their seventy-five
mile routes, says the Kansas City
Times. The work Is the direct result
of the agitation recently started when
the Good Roads special sent out by
the Santa Fe railroad stopped there
and D. Ward King made a practical
demonstration of the possibilities of
the "split log" drag. At that time
seventy-five farmers and business men
agreed to build and operate drags.
Wide Awake Farmers.
During the present season there will
be ten different stone macadam roads
built near Decatur, lnd., Mys Motor
News. The county auditor's office baa
been flooded with road petit.'ons since
early In January. It seems ai though
the farmers In this county are deter
mined to do their share, as some of
them have affixed their signatures to
several different petitions.
