Tho cry for better roads from all
parts of the country o'f Into years is
having the desired effect to some ex
tent, yet the loads of Xcbraskaare not
being improved nearly as fast as thoy
should be. lioad building in some
p'irts of the state is expensive. A
great portion of tho state is quite roll
ing, and considerable grading is le
quired in cutting down the hills and
tilling the drawn to make tho roads
level enough tu enable a fair sized
team to draw a hoavy load to market
Tho expense in leveling tho roadways
is so much that the taxpayers usually
object when tho cost is mentioned,
and as a result the roads in many eases
remain in a condition that makes the
marketing ot farm products an expen.
fiivo operation and makes it other than
a pleasure to drive over thoso roads
with u light rig.
In the hilly sections of tho state the
tlrst necessary operation in road build
ing Is tho levollng, by the grading
down of the hills and the tilling up of
the draws. In doing this there is us
ually a heavy expouse connected and
on this account in some eases it will
take bonio years to complete the work.
The work, however, should be started
with the idea In view that It will be
completed some time, and plans to
this ond should be made. The cuts
through the hills should be begun
with enough width so there will be

of planks instead of logs. Care should
lie exercised to strengthen the imple
ment by leinfoiciug it here and thcic
when planks are usud
The drag should lie used omission
ally during tho whole year It will
gradually work the diit towaid the
conter of the road, making the road
rouudul, ami will keep the surface
smooth and free ol ruts, allowing the
water to drain oil' readily after tho
rains and tho road to dry quickly.
The drag does tho best work when tlio
ground is quite moist. The earth then
moves treely along the faces of the
slabs, Most of our clay soil will smear
or puddle and become hard like ground
plowed too wet when worked with
this implement soon after each rain.
Koads where this treatment has been
carried on for several years have form

The cost of uialntainaiicc of earth
roads by dragging amounts to only a
tritlo when compared with tlio benefits
derived. The average cost per mile of
road for the whole year will probably
not be more than 8l in Nebraska.
