WORKING FOR BETTER ROADS
Movement Everywhere Growing Apace
as Necessity for Improvement
Becomes More Apparent.
diy liowAitn 11. anoss.)
Tho movement for, good rondB la
ovorywhero growing apace. Tho aglta-i
Hon for bettor highways is reaching
every nook and corner of tho land.
Tho necessity for this improvement,
becomes more nnd moro apparent a3
wo progress along our various lines of
activity. A very Httlo investigation
will convlnco anyone that moro than
one-half tho money that is ralsed for
good roads is absolutely wasted by un
skilled work, lneinclent and costly su
porvislon and by doing tho wrong In
stead of tho right thing, or doing what
is dono at tho wrong time of the year.
Among tho significant movements
for hotter highways in tho central
west is tho proposition to place the
whole matter of highway Improvement
under a county unit to havo 0110 man
thoroughly skilled in tho art of road
building and maintenance, who shall
bo well paid and who shall give his
whole timo to tho care of the roads In
hia county. In large counties he would
have ono or more assistants. This cer
tainly is a businuss-liko proposition
und ought to give better results. As it
Is today, under tho hit-and-miss propo
sition, those who aro informed will
ngreo that practically one-half tho
monoy raised is wasted by ill-timed
and misdirected effort. Henco tho
logical suggestion is, first to expend
wisely tho money that is now boiug
raised, to tho end that wo will havo
something to show for tho expenditure,
and second, that tho highways shall
show an improvement from year to
The caro and maintenance of tho
road ought not to be placed upon tho
farmer, for tho roads need attention at

Colorado, Between Colorado Springs

tho very tlmo when tho farmer Is busi
est; that is, during the planting season
In tho spring, which is tho only tlmo
to build roads, for then the road has'
the entire summer to compact and
solidify andget ready for tho trying
timo of tho winter. It a road is graded
in tho early spring, properly ci owned
and good drainage provided, the en
tiro embankment will bo dried out be
foro fall and tho summer rains falling
on it will wet only tho top inch or so
and bo quickly carried off, and when
tho frost comes thero will bo vory lit
tle moisture to freeze, for lot us ro
momber that tho ground does not
freeze, but tho moisturo In tho ground.
If tho moisture thero is at a minimum
tho road will pass through tho winter
and open up in the spring without be
ing cut up very deoply, particularly if
it In dragged frequently after a rain,
so as to keep out tho Httlo ruts that
will hold the w'ater and permit it to
soak down and loosen up tho ground
Immediately beneath. Keep water off
tho road and tho troublo will bo ro
duccd to a minimum.
Henco it would seem like a sensible
business proposition, and ono that
would make for efliciency, to havo
some onb In clinrgo of tho roads of tho
county who has nothing elso to do
and who knbws what to do and when
It ought to bo done.
legislation is ponding in soveral
Btatcu to simplify and cheapen road
administration nnd put it in skilled
hands. TIiIb seems to bo tho first stop
In the direction of improvement. It
goes without saying that tho old plan
of working out tho road tax, in which
annual picnics, with horso racing,. box
lng, wrestling, jumping, story tolling
and other stunts aro tho principal
features, should be abolished, and that
all road taxes should bo pand In cash
and oxpended under sklllod supervl
slon. That is tho only way wo can
get ono dollar's worth of rond for tho
dollar expended, Wo aro now getting
less thnn fifty cents worth of road for
tho dollar collected.

I SVIANAGER1ENT OF
By Maintaining the Fertility of the Orchard Soil Your Trees Are Due to
Bear a Heavy Crop of Fruit. An Apple Orchard In Bloom Last Spring
That Yielded This Fall a Wonderful Crop. Care of the Soil Helped In
This Instance. t
(Hy W. MILTON KELLY)
Tho problem of securing tho fertil
ity already in tho soil is a matter
which wo should carefully conMdor
boforowo apply commercial plant food&
uml manures to our orchard soils.
On soils which contain a reasonable
Amount of availablo plant food and
which havo been brought to a good
physical condition, tho need of apply
ing mnnures and commercial fertil
izers will bo reduced to a minimum
until tho trees havo attained a size
and ngo when their roots occupy
practically all of tho boII.
How to prepare tho soil so that
tho roots may go deep Into tho sub
soil after mineral plant food, and so
that the surface roots may reach out
Into tho surfaco soil until thoy Inter
lock with tho roots of adjoining trees
Is tho question for us to consider.
First of all, tho soil must' bo well
drained and prepared sufficiently deep
bo that tho roots may roach deep
Into tho subsoil. Second, tho surfaco
soil must bo cultivated frequently
and a rotation of cover crops nnd
catch crops employed bo that a suf
ficient amount of plant food will be
mado available to promote a rapd
and healthy growth raihor than forc
ing tho growth of tho trees by tho
uso of manures and fertilizers rich in
In somo instances tho soil may bo
ilfjficlent In plant food and tho Intel
ligent uso of mineral plant foods will
provo vory beneficial to tho young
It is when tho orchards begin to
boar largo crops of fruit that tho de
mands for plant food must bo met If
profltablo crops of fruit aro secured.
'At this timo tho roots of tho treos
havo taken possession of practically
nil of tho soil and havo utilized tho
larger part of tho availablo plant food,
so that tho addition of somo form of
manure or fertilizer 1b essential.
Tho function of tho soil in fur
nishing tho treo with plant food Is an
oxcoedlngly. complex ono, and thero
nro certnin well defined laws that
must be kept In mind for tho Im
provement and maintenance of tho
fertility of tho soil that Is occupied
by tho trees. Somo fruit growers ad
vocato sod mulch, others depend upon
clean cultivation and tho liboral use
of manures and fertilizers, others grow
cover crops nnd uso mineral fertiliz
ers as a means of maintaining tho
fertility of their orchnrd soilp.
Tho fact that no two soils require
the eatno lino of treatment has
caused a confusion of ideas in tho
mnnngement of orchnrd soils. After
studying tho mattor in Its various
phases, I havo arrived at tho conclu
sion that tho best lino of management
consists of a system of clean cultiva
tion, tho uso of cover and gru'ss crops
nnd the use of an incomplete fertil
izer; tho whole lino of management
to be governed by the growth of the
trees and tho year they nro duo to
bear a heavy crop of fruit.
In adoptiiig any system of soil
management for tho orchard, It Is
Imperative that wo select tho ono
which possosBes as many of tho good
points and eliminated in a largo de
gree all of tho uudeslrnblo ones and
exhausts tho least fertility from the
soil, and which will need tho least
posslblo amount of purchased fertiliz
ers, and at the samo tlmo maintain
tho trees and fruit In a thrifty and
When wo consider any method for
maintaining tho fertility of orchard
soils, thero aro three classes of rela
tions that must bo given considera
tion, botli separatoh' and nlso in their
relations to each other tho physical,
tho chemical nnd Die biological condi
tion of tho soil. Theso throe relations
nro so closely connected mid bo much
dependent upon each other that it Is
a difficult matter for us to decide
where ono begins and tho,othcr leaves

a Bystem whore all throo may bo

of a limited amount of mineral fertil

Ib very Important, but if wo consider
it nlono wo will gain lncronsed crops
for a few years, but In tho end will
oxhaUBt our soil and tho crops of
fruit will becomo nmnllor and moro
imperfect until wo will bo compelled
to uso largo amounts of mnnuro or
fertilizer. It is nlways moro proflt
ablo for us to maintain tho fertility
of the orchnrd than to skin off tho
fruit nnd thon try and bring it back"
to n condition whoro It will produco
profltablo crops of fruit. To success
fully maintain tho physical condition
of tho boII wo must supply it with an
abundance of humus forming material
and glvo it good tillage. Tho biolog
ical condition of .tho soil deals with
tho soil organlBiiiB that work for us
in making tho substances of tho boII
into a condition availablo to nourish
tho growing plants. Without thoin
tho soil would not bo in a condition to

conclusion that tho subject Is ono'
which they cannot understand. Thai

and that wo aro tho loser every tlmo'
wo try to get a crop of fruit from a,
soil which is deficient In avallabloj
plant food. Tho trees must havo
food from tho soil boforo thoy can'
produco fruit. Now, after discussing
thcso threo relations, let us discuss,
tho methods best adapted to maintain
them eoparatcly, and also In tholr ro
IntionB to each other, so that we
may feed our treos and fruit In tho'
most efficient and economical man-,
Plowing under green follngo adds

amount of plant food which Is mudo
availablo depends largely upon tho
carbonic acid producod by the decom

tho roots nnd orgnnic matter. TIiub,

abled to IncrouBO tho nitrogen content
of tho soil, for these plants havo tho'
power of obtaining their nitrogen
from tho atmosphere and depositing it
In the soil In n form availablo for
succeeding crops of fruit and wood.
Thus, when legumes nro grown to in
crease the supply of liumuB and nl
tiogen, It is not necessary to uso
high-priced completo fertilizers. Ni
trogen Ib tho most expansive element
of fertility, and the air is a much
cheaper source than tho fertilizer
In many respects cultivation and(
cover crops rosemblo each other in
tholr genorul effect upon tho store'
of plant food Jn the soil. It Is inn do

how a clump of grass will hold leaves,

leaves Is nnluro's method of maintain

When tho treos nro making too
