They represent the surplus labor of centuries. They make possible tho transfer of the abundance of one region to supplement the want of another. And yet tho modern road, crossing the country in all directions, traversible by carriages and carts, as well as beasts, does not go back to the times of good Queen Bess. Indeed, in her reign thousands might starve and did starve in one county, while abundance filled the granaries of the others. "Think of men and women and children starving from mere lack of that form of wealth which we call roads in the days when Drake and the great captains were scouring the seas in search of the Spanish galleons apd Spanish gold, and when the military might of England hurled back the Spanish armada and all the power of the greatest nation on tho face of the globe.

Towns at no great distance from a limestone quarry may well take as an object lesson the excellent surface of a well kept listsestone road in a Hudson river town, and for those interested in the subject the following figures are briefly submitted, says W. B. Page in Good Roads: The roadbed, 10 feet wide, is first covered to the depth of 2 inches with finely crushed limestone at a cost per mile of $570, the average haulage distance being 1)4 miles from railroad station. If the roadbed is naturally hard, a layer, of stone even less, than 2 inches in^thicknessi will.answer.;v v v-t Every; yearJfrbm an inch to 1^ inches of finely crushed limestone is added, and in little over a week the ordinary everyday traffic of vehicles grinds it to absolute smoothness. As every one knows, limestone possesses natural ce- meutio qualities, and for a road of this description it is almost .imperative that to secure the best results the surface be kept sprinkled. This is accomplished by an ordinary sprinkling cart; horses and driver at a cost of |80 per month. To maintain a road of this description averages for tho season a total cost of $165 per mile, surely an item of exceedingly small"proportions compared with the results obtained. Of course the old fashioned way of letting the roads take care of themselves, after the customary spring pottering, will not do in this case, so the services of two men are engaged to attend to the roads the entire season, an important bearing upon the final economical showing of the total cost of maintenance. Concerning Wagon Wheels. ' A writer in The ( Rural New Yorker says: "There is no gain in power by enlarging the size of wagon wheels. The only advantage of the large wheel over a smaller one is that the excess of leverage will be a help in lifting the load on the wheel over inequalities on a road. On a perfect and an equally smooth surface, a small wheel will carry as much load'as' a large one with the same power, There is obviously some difference in favor of a small wheel, apparently due to the lifting of the load by the hojrse, as the line of draft is upward to some«extent. But so far as the horse is concerned there is obviously no gain to it, as the exertion of the lifting must neutralize some of the force exerted, and thus, in fact, the wo*k done-by the animal is not lessened to any appreciable extent, The easiest draft is due to the line of traction being perpendicular to the line of the shouldey of the horse, by which the pressure on the shoulder is*'made the most direct. Neglect of this is tho pause of the galling of 'the shoulders of horses," Sonic fieantlfni frees and Shrubs Which Cftnnot lie Safety Moved in Attttitnn. It is -well known to those who plant largely that there are some trees and shrubs -which can bo transplanted safely only in the spring;, lii this list are placed absolutely magnolias, tulip tree and paulowiiia and to some degree birch, dog-wood, sour and sweet gums, oaks, girigho, peach, pines, hollies and tnahouias. Leaving out the magnolia* tulip and paulowiiia, it is not impossible to succeocl with the rest in autumn, but spriug is the preferred season, and early spring at that. There is quite n difference in the degree of safety with Which magnolias may be transplanted. The tree sorts are more difficult than the shrub ones, because they niako fewer roots. Just why it is that theso beautiful trees and shrubs dislike fall planting When of any size, Joseph Median, in a communication on the subject to Country Gentleman, does not attempt to explain. Ho says: It is enough to know that practice, has proved spring to be the best time of all for magnolia specimens of planting size. And it can be said that when planted then and well pruned the loss of plants is but trifling. Somo of tho tree sorts have but few fibrous roots, or roots of any kind, for the mat ter of that. It follows that severe pruning must be practiced, the side branches out in nearly to the main stem. The same kind of pruning is required for tho shrub kinds when they get large and have stood in one place for some time. Much the same treatment as recommended for magnolias is to be accorded to the tulip poplar and the panlownia. The former tree is a harder one to transplant than magnolias. Close pruning and careful planting must bo done. Paulownias are not so stubborn, and indeed they rarely fail altogether. If the tops should not survive, they push up strongly from the root -" The other deciduous trees mentioned should be treated as recommended for those already named. The pines, hollies and mahonias prefer spring planting, in this respect differing from most all other evergreens, which seem to do as well in late summer and fall as at any other time. Pines may bo pruned, but not to take off all the foliage, as they ,11 not make new shoots below the part with foliage on. Hollies want close pruning and all leaves cut off, and so do mahonias, and then they will grow. M. T. MAGGARTi. ". P. PfcKK. HAGGARD & PfeEK, JONES & SMITH.

It is recommended from the station to all who take the trouble to spray their gooseberries as one of the best varieties yet tested on the station grounds. The accompanying illustration from Sfeorrs & Harrison's garden manual gives an idea of, its productiveness. It is further described as the "largest gooseberry in this country." It is advised that it should not bo planted closer than four by six feet apart. The Chautauqua is classed as an American variety, It is probably a seedling of some English sort. ;•' Raising Cuttings In Water. Almost any plants with comparatively bard wood can be made to root by being placed in bottles of water. The oleander is a familiar illustration. The ivy also can be easily raised in this way, After the roots have become strong in the water the'plants cap be taken out and place in earth, Meeban's Monthly says: For this perhaps it is better to let the water continue stagnant in the, bottles. A change of water is not beneficial, Even soft wood out* tings will root readily in sand with water, A saucer of sand, for instance, filled-with water is all that is needed to root many soft wood cuttings. These saucers with the cuttings should be kept shaded fo? a day or two and then placed in the full light. If placed at pppe in the fall light, they are liable to wilt,. C. B. PAUL, M. D., ... .- .
