In fact, it mishi be safely said that a properly operated (�.vi;erimental department is an essential to any broad scheme of roadway improvemen I. i The comparative tractive clliciency of a hard road with a smooth surface . and an unyielding roadbed is shown Shy the study of the following loads which could be hauled at two and a half miles per hour on the level ny a 3000-lb. team drawing an ordinary , well lubricated farm wagon with 2-inch tires : Brick pavement, eleven tons ; asphalt pavement, six tons ; macadam road, live tons ; gravel road, four tons ; ordinary earth road, two and a half tons ; ordinary sand road, two tons. In usine; such comparisons in estimating purely linancial benefits full loads only should be calculated and the necessary cost in grade reduction and bridge construction to allow of heavier loads on the improved roadway must he allowed for. As has alreaih been pointed out in the lirsl article the cost per ton mile to a fanner and a freighter are nol the same and deductions which apply lo the latter cannot be iis.'d in their entiretv in calculating the saving to the lornrer. The ease, speed and frequency of intercotnmunication with iiciiihbors and with local centers which does so much to amelior-at2 agricultural conditions of life should ho kept prominently to the forefront when di.sciissing road improvement. The cost of both gravel and biokeu stone roads is comparatively large. Lemons, large .-iize por dozen ......... ,'irape Kvuit, fancy I'lorida, lUc and . . Apples, good cooKors, i; lbs lor ..........
