points oat that of afore tfan 2,

are entirely unimproved, and that
on roads of thiB class the drag jj
practically asalesa. '
There is a mun Isrgar mileage,
however, that has been partially
improved, and it is on roads ot
(his character roads that h&vu
been crowned or drained, bat
have not a hard surface thai the
ase of the drag is advocated.
; Ia its simplest form the road
drag oou8iets of of an ordinary
log split in half snd the two
halves oonneoted like the uprights
of a ladder by means ot cross
ticks or ruDgs set in. The l g
should be about seven or eight
inches in diamoter. acdTPaa-tS-:
to eight fet in length. It, is bet
ter to have it of well seasoned,
hard, tone h wood Thetwosemi-
eylindrical halves of the log from
the rnnnerB of the drag, and ate
usually spaced from thirty to
thirty six inches apart. Thw
front runner is always placed
with the split surface of the wood
facing forward, bat the rear ran
ner sometimes has its rouuded
face in front. This is done iu or
der to morea9e the Buieanue ac
tion of the drag as it passes over
the surface of th? road.
The two runners are not placed
directlv behind each' other, but
are "offset," s it is called, from
twelve to sixteen inches, ihis is
done because the drag is drawn
over the road at au auele suffici
ent to make the ru nTs fief
themselves of the material which
thev soraoe. The amount of this
angle or skuw depends, of coarse
upon the couditicn of the road
Bv offsettine the runners, is is
possible to make their ends fol
low approximately the same hue
on thu read, whhh they would
not do if they were set directly
behiud each other and the drag
drawn at an angle the road
In order to provide standiug
rocm for the mau. it is U;oai t
naif 'two boards down upou th
wrauiis paralell to the runners
Standiue Uuon these, a skilfn
driver will bear his weight inluch
a way bb to aid materially in thb
aucoeBsful operation of the drag.
The drag is drawn by a chain,
whioh b iould be about eight feet
long. This can be fastened by
eye bolts to each end of the tront
tanner, or oue end of the chain
paes through a hole at the dis
charge end of the front runner,
and the other end be looped over
the wruog at the cutting end of
the ruuuer. It is important that
the hitohii g link should ba so
riflH-pned that its nositi m can Lb
chauged readily. It is also desir
able to a metal cutting
edge for the front runner. This
can be made from a strip of iron
or steel, and old wagon tires have
frequently proved eat.aiactory.
The cost of such a drag varies
frcm $2 to perhaps $10 or $12
This practically insignificant out
lay will secure an implement that
will be of great service to the
community for at least three " or
fnnr vears. The. fact cannot be
. "overloakek, however, that skil
in the nae of the drag is iudiepen
lib e.
The angle that the runners
make with the center line of the
road, the skew ungle. as it migh
be called, is an important factor
For exmple, if the dragging is
dona to increase the crown of the
road, the dra2 should be be snf-

So they decided that the people
should have no official copartner
ship with the churches, and that
the people's schools, like all the
other publio institutions, should
be secular purely and simply
seoular, rather than half Becular
and half eoolesiastical.
And in this they did well. To
have done. less , would have been
in the end disastrbvr
If the day .ever cpmea;rueB the
people's money381?B5&priated
for seo tar lan putndsss, V and the
sectarian shibbolethT are permitt
ed to invade the precincts of our
public sohool system, the great
experiment in democratic govern
ment on this continent will have
failed and the curtain will have
fallen upon the attempt at free
and progressive government in
our beloved oountry.
What's the matter with that?
Nothing absolutely nothing.
It is the sentiment The Menaoe
has been trying to disseminate all
these years. You might searoh
the files of The Menace from the
time and you wouldn't find a
clearer, more pugnent or timely
statement on the separation of
church and state.
The point is simply this : Prob
ably in less than thirty days the
American will oome out in a whole
ront page with piotures of priests
and other prelates and a eulogy
on the Roman Catholic as long as
Jacob's ladder.
The Amerioan is exactly like
the great majority of other daily
papers. It has no policy. It has
no principal, and it has no other
object than to make money. Is
preaches patnosim one day ana
lauds the enemies of patnosim
the next. It plays for suokers
and catches them in every stream.
The only hope for the people is
for the people to make plain to
the daily papers where they stand
on these great questions. When
they print something worth while
write them and tell them, about
it, and then when they print 'this
Roman slush tell them about
that, too, and tell them about
that unmistakable terms. They'll
soon get wise.
