Asphalt is perhaps one of the very
best road building materials in use
today. The facility with which this
substance can be molded, the rapidity
with which it hardens, the compara-
tive ease of repair, testify to its mer-
its. Hut asphalt has disadvantages,
and decided ones at that. It is costly,
special plants for heating the powder
and skilled workmen to lay and roll
the heavy substance being required.
Hence, small towns cannot well afford
to make use of asphalt and even many
large cities hesitate to make use of
this valuable substance despite its ob-
vious merits. Now In combination
loses many of these disadvantages.
According lo M. Mazerolle, the French
engineer who presided at the interna-
tional road congress held In Paris not
long since, excellent results have been
obtained with the new material, and
Its chief advantages are the facility
with which rubber-asphalt can be
laid and the few and simple utensils
required for laying It. Best of all It
can be applied cold. To bring about
this combination of rubber and asphalt
the two substances are placed together
in a special mixing apparatus. The
asphalt is introduced In the form of
fine powder, the rubber swollen and
softened by a solvent. The resultant
material Is a brown powder of a dark
er color than the original asphalt,
and requiring only compression
settle and harden quickly. The sur-
face then takes on a lighter tint, and
after a few days exposure to the ulr
becomes a greyish white. Much thin-
ner layers of the asphalt-rubber ma-
terial, than of asphalt alone, can be
used, inasmuch as the mixture forms
a harder substance. This is an Im
portant recommendation in addition to
the advantage of ease and facility
preparing and laying. The new preps
ration stands the test of time well,
a section of the pavement is taken up
after long usage it is found to be
equally hard at base and surface,
striking contrast with the older ma-
terial is shown when rubber-asphalt
is repaired. It suffices to polish the
fractured edge of the old layer where
the mending is to be effected, in or
der that the new layer may adhere
Then fresh material Is mixed and pre-
pared on the spot, is laid down cold
and is compressed quickly Into place
Traffic may be resumed immediately
on the completion of the work. Only
& few minutes are required for the
entire process.—From Technical

We read that "the garden causeth
the things that are aown in it to spring
forth," and the similes, "As gardens
hy the riverside” and "like a watered
garden,” are refreshing mental pic-
tures to those who know the heat and
dryness of the east. Every garden has
Its particular charm, and rarely is one
to be seen from which we can turn
without having gaiued a new idea of a
color arrangement, of certain plants
In wonderful perfection, of something
which gives delight and Inspiration
The little gardens about laborers' cot-
tages. where the few flowers mean so
much to tlie man or woman who cares
for them in moments before or after a
long day's toll, touch the heart as no
great gardens can, however complete
with all that nature and art combined
are able to accomplish. Every lover
of flowers has her own Ideas upon the
Subject of gardening My ideal garden
Is one a little distance from the house
and so surrounded by trees and en-
closed by hedges that the windows of
the house cannot look down upon it
A I >'t ly |>ut-of-t|i>or8 room, an It
were, neat and orderly as the rooms of
the house; every plant brought to its
highest development, and nature
trnineil by man, giving constant and
luxuriant blooiii; wlqre th% green
setting of trees, hedges, box edging,
and fine turf and the colors blending
without a Jarring note, till us with a
sense of delight and thanksgiving for
the beauty of the spot. A place where
we may walk or talk, read or work,
gulte unobserved, with the sunshine
all around. >-t seated In cool shade,
the murmuring of falling water, to-
gether witli the exquisite notes of the
song sparrow or the liquid call of the
rat-bird in our ears Where can any
place on tills earth lie found more ex-
quisite and peaceful? Into such a
garden Maud may have been called
by her lover- and to such a little par-
adise Solomon may have referred in
his Bong of Songs, where he speaks
of "a garden enclosed."—From "Color
