OIL IN ROAD WORK.
EXPERT BELIEVES IT EXCELLENT FOR
HARDENING SANDY HIGHWAYS.
ONt la Aboat One-third That af
: Macadam, or fl.SOQ Per Mile, Bay
Kaaaaa Professor Several Practical
"Boadmaklog wlU oil I believe to
be a commercial success, which will In
tun be generally adopted In Improv
ing the sandy roads of the state."
This is the opinion Professor Albert
Dickens of the Kansas State Agricul
tural college, the man who for the past
year has been assigned ttbe work of
expending the $2,500 appropriated by
the last legislature for the purpose of
experimenting In oil roodmaklng, gave
the Topeka Journal.
"The coat of oiling a sandy road,"
Mid Profttsor Dickens while the guest
of F. D. Coburn, secretary of the state
board of agriculture, "will be about
(1200 a mile. Some roads will cost
more than others. This is only about
one-third the cost of macadam and
where stone is not plentiful Is much
less than a third.
"We have constructed oil roadways
In four different parts of the state.
Our most extensive experiment was
sear Garden City, where we oiled a
little over a mile of rood. The sandy
soil absorbed vast quantities of oil.
Four carloads were put into the road
way with a sprinkling cart. At Hutch
inson we made nearly a mile of oil
road, and we built short stretches at
Manhnttan and Mnple II11I.
"Whether the oil in the roadways
will hnve to be renewed remains to be
seen. Of courj there are certain por
tions of the oil which are volatile and
will pass off into the air. But we use
for this oiling only the reavy residuum
oil left after the kerosene and gasoline
have been extracted. This oil Is thick
and heavy and works better than 1:n
"Up at Manhattan the people who
own fast horses were so well pleased
with the oil road that they have oiled
the rnee track and claim that It makes
their track one of llie best In the state.
"Out at (Janien City, where the sand
is probably as heavy as any place In
the state, the oil experiments are'
watched with the greatest interest.
The whole of western Kansas will be
benefited greatly if the oil road comes
into general use. There Is a rich
farming country tributary to Garden
City, which is at times almost cut off
from the t6wn because of the heavy
sand in the roads. The roads are so
bad that a horse cannot haul more
than ten bushels of wheat at n load.
"The farmers living near Garden
City and the merchants In the town
are talking of oiling the main roads
leading to this tributary country, so
that the farmers can come Into town
regardless of the sand.
"We have found that narrow tired
wagons cut up the road badly after it
has been oiled, while the wide tired
wagons tend to make It more solid and
firm. This Is of course true to a great
extent of the effect of the tires on ordi
It Is likely that the next legislature
will be asked to continue the appropri
ation for oil road experiments In order
that tests may be made in other por
tions of the state and establish fully
the practicability of this method of
good roads making.
CALL FOR NATIONAL ROAD.
Appenl to Have Fnmoa Highway
Rebuilt by the Government.
The National Good Bonds associa
tion, with headquarters In St. Louis,
has sent out the following appeal to
motorists, says the New York Ameri
can: "The National Good Bonds associa
tion is a powerful force for good, and
Its work Is accomplishing results in all
parts of the United States. It Is en
gaged in many things that will bene
fit the people. One of the great
schemes It has In mind and which It
hag set about to accomplish Is the re
pair and rebuilding of the great na
tional road across Maryland, Pennsyl
vania, West Virginia, Ohio and Indi
ana. "That memorable road was Intended
to be one of the highways between the
east and the west before railroads were
known. It w.is built at great expense, !
costing the federal government over
17,000,000, and during the early days
was a famous highway over which .
thousands traveled every week. When
railroads came Into existence the na-
tional road was neglected, and today
It Is only a skeleton of what it once
"It Is proposed to rebuild It, and the
National Good Roadq association bag
undertaken to have It done by the gov-,
eminent. The length of the road la
about 700 miles, mid It can be rebuilt
for less than $7,000,000. That i about
the cost of one good battleship, and wt
are building lots of them. The appro
priation of that sum to make this old
road across five states would do as
much good as the average battleship,
for nqt one such ship In ten will ever
get In a fight. Then when the old road
has been put In good shape to the Mis
sissippi river It may be that the price
of about three other battleships will be
set aside to build the road to the Pa
cific coast I
"One first class continuous highway
across the continent would be a great
thing. Many a traveler would spend
two or three months going and com
ing by team, bicycle, automobile oi
otherwise. It would be easy for the
nation to do a thing like this.
"In 1005 150.000 Americans visited
Europe and for the privilege of going
orer the first class European roads paid
over saoo.oou.uoo." ;
AN ORANGE GRCVE.
Hodera Methods In Cultivating; the
Void of the Orchard.
You are certainly entitled to look
through that wire fence und see all that
constitutes an orange orchard. There
are 200 round headed trees, about
twelve feet In diameter. The fruit
looks immensely as If It bad been arti
ficially put in place. Beally those
would pass for 200 Christmas trees.
Does nature do this sort of work any
where else? You forget the cherry trees
In your northern orchard. You have be
come so familiar with the scarlet glob
ules that bang all over those trees,
with orioles and robins shouting ap
proval, and tanagers with Indigo birds
sitting In the apple tree overhead, that
yon cannot fully see and appreciate the
charm. But you certainly have not for
gotten the glory of a Mcintosh red ap
ple tree In October or Indeed a whole
orchard of ripe Northern Spies, Spltzen
burgs and Kings. Yet the orange has a
glory all Its own. It Is the gold of the
orchard. You thought the trees grew In
groves, "but here they are In long, reg
ular rows." That was a word borrow
ed from the wild oranges that In Span
ish doy9 came up where they might
and were seldom transplanted. They
grew as those wild persimmons grow
at the edge of the orchard or as pines
and maples grow. But your modern
orange trees are grown In long rows to
be cultivated with plows and horses.
The renl' orange tree should stand
about twenty-five or thirty feet high,
with n trunk of five or six Inches. Its
foliage Is (nse and a rich green. It is
n gran 1 tree to sit beneath at midday
and r--'n the Juiees of the fruit instead
of v-'"'-tt is distilled perfectly. But
11;-" Iviot nrc round and low headed,
nnl on" must stoop to get beneath
tho-:i. They are made of the grafter
shoots that came up around the old
trees after tho freeze. They are more
conven'rnt to sway, to protect from
the Wizznrd. while tbe fruit Is more
easily gathered. Ton can walk nil
about that orchard and reach half the
fruit witlnut a ladder. Tt is n good 11
luetrntfen of how good sometimes
oornrj out of evil.
"Different shapes!" To be sure.
There are. 'twite as many varieties of
orai:?"s In this onward as there are of
apples or plums in most of your north
ern orchards fifteen ' or twenty, at
leapt. The grower knows them nil by
naive and enn tell tnem all by the
sh ipe and the !iin!ity. Tie does not go
at random and pick an- fine big orange
for his own rating, but he takes his
selection-the King, or the TTomosasa,
or the .TafTa, or the Ruby, or Tarson
Brown, or Sntsmna. or possibly the
tangerine. He fills his pocket with se
lected varieties and then goes to that
pine g-ove over then- and peels them
as he lunches. It is very much as we
do with our pippins, and Swanrs, and
Princess Louise, and Jllllflowers. In

The nomination of sheriffs according
to the present mode dates from 1401.
The "shire reeve" wus first appointed
by Alfred the Great tj assist the alder- j
men uud the bishop in the dischurge of '
their judicial functions in the conn-
tics. In Edward lll.'s reign it was en-1
ucieu turn mey suouiu be oruuineu on
the morrow of All Souls by the chan
cellor, treasurer uud chief baron of the
exchequer." The only instance of a fe
male sheriff Is that of Anne, countess
of Pembroke, who on the death of her
father, the Earl of Cumberland, with
out male heirs in 1043, succeeded to the
office In Westmorland and attended the
Judges to Appleby.
Voltaire wus the ugliest man of bis
age. Emaciuted to a skeleton, all the
features of his countenance were exag
gerated. His nose and chin nearly met
from the luck of teeth; his cheeks were
sunken and wrinkled, his eyes set so
far back in his bead and so obscured
by shaggy, overhanging brows as to be
almost invisible. He usually wore a
large wig, from the midst of which his
attenuated features peeped out with
comical effect. For years before he
died bis weight did not exceed ninety
