ROCK ROAD QUESTION I southern farms.
WHY D. WARD KING FAVORS BUILD
ING MACADAM HIGHWAYS.
Expert Telia How and Where The?
Are a Poaalbllity Advlaea Any Com
munity to Build a Mile or More of
Stone Road Each Year,
"The conviction tbnt progress Is pos
sible must .first exist before any at
tempt at progress will be made. It cer
tainly Is unfortunate tbat tbe mistaken
Idea that niaeailuuiizeO roads are im
possible prevails Id so many communi
ties," writes D. Ward Kins in the Uootl
Itoads Magazine. Some folk seem to
Lave a notion that unless the tlelds are
covered with stone rock Is too scarce
for road buildiug. 1 will lie dogmatic
for a moment nnd assert, as a general
proposition, that a macadamized pike
Is a possibility wherever laud Is worth
$30 per aere and rock can be obtained
-within two and a half miles of the pro
posed road not all of the roads, of
course, but the main thoroughfares.
"Permit :no a few moments in sup
port of my position. While visiting In
Alabama one summer I saw rock roads
building at a cost of $'J,'J00 per mile
where the best land was priced at only
$25 to $30 per acre. Moreover, in my
opinion, tbe road they were building
was far heavier and wider than the
travel demanded and therefore much
more expensive than necessary. Hut
the people there have been educated to
see the advantages of the stone road.
'lease do nut think I am speaking of a
radically progressive community. The
old darky still .dun's his tatlered hat
nnd steps il'l' Hie sidewalk as you pass.
Chain harness Is the rule. The old
style bull tongue plow is in the majori
ty, and these line roads iuv traveled by
cx teams. Not of the 'new south' am
1 speaking, but of the genuine old fash
ioned hospitable 'old s null' of the,
antebellum days. And now another
statement: Although rock Is superabun
dant thereabout, still the contractor
found It profitable to haul the crushed
rock two and a half miles before mov
ing the crushing machinery. 1 submit
that these two facts prove that with
rock less tli;m two and a half miles
distant and land nt s::o per acre mac
adamized mads nre a possibility. And
it would seem a natural sequence that
win-re land is more valuable the stone
can In- hauled farttser.
"And now let us consider an in
Htunce where a community might have
Much Benefit to Be Derived From Sub
toiling the Land.
A large number of farmers who, act
ing on our advice, have subsoiled parts
of their farms have testified to us tbat
they derived much benefit from so do
ing, says the Southern Planter. An
ther good reason for plowing and sub
soiling land in the south during the
winter months Is that it is the only
certain way in which to make an end
of the gullies and galls which so dis
figure the farms of the south and giva
to them in the eyes of strangers the
appearance of being wasted and neg
lected anil which are a source of great
loss to southern farmers in the depre
ciation of the value of their farms and
In the loss of soil.
Hillsides In the South.
The reason for the existence of these
gullies and galls is that the rainfall
cannot permeate the subsoil and there
fore accumulates in the surface soil
until It becomes so supersaturated that
it can no longer retain its hold on the
subsoil and slides down to the lower
land In the form of mud. The subsoil
thus left bare then begins to disinte
grate under the action of the sun, air
and frost nnd as soon as disintegrated
slips oil" its subsoil as mud and so en
larges the g::l!iy, and this process is
continually repeated until we have the
terrible scarred hillsides which are so
frequent mi eyes ire in the south.
Deep Plowing and Subsoiling.
ecp plowing and snbsoiling will
make tin end of these guliies and add
d.illars an acre to t'ae value of the laud.
The new soil may be turned up to the
surface now without any risk of Its
not Icing si'li.iiciitl..- :,(!:. ted for its
plant food to be available for crop pro
