A valuable and peculiar property of kun
kah is that the beds nre constantly re
plenished by natural processes born of some
favorable condition of the soil. After ex
hausting a bed of kimkah the land is leveled
and allowed to remain untouched. After a
few- years the same land again yields a sup
ply of kunkuh.. In parsing down the road
one sees big gangs of natives repairing the
surface with kunkah dug out of the beds im
mediately by the roadside. At certain seasons
of the year the road overseers of the districts
collect l ig gangs of men and women and pro
ceed to repair such portions of the road as
need attention. The worn portions are picked to the bottom of the metaling, and refilled
v;th new kunkah as neatly as though it were
a section of concrete pavement in a city side
walk. A portion of the men carry the liun
I.ah on their heads in wooden trays from the
nearby pit to the road, the women carry jars
of water from roadside well, jkhjI or river.
The kunkah is spread, the water thrown over
it and another gang of men tarn;) it down
with iron tampers. In renewing whole sec
tions of road these tampers are sometimes
ranged three and four de -p and stretch cleai

manifestly of tho highest cultivation, for tho
