''Anyone" can  do these things, but in-most  cases at a greatcwaste of 'money  and labor, and with very inferior  results. For centuries in Eng-:  land, it was left to anyone to  make the roads... It was not until  ' - 1 fir  McAdam and Telford appeared,  but one century ago that the  people in England becamo convinced that "anyone" could, not  build- a'*road. This work was  then placed in.the hands of expert roadbuilders and'the transformation has been nothing  short of wonderful.  Iu too many townships . of  Ontario "statute labor" means  that once a year the rate-payers  gather to make roads under the  direction of "anyone."' They  plow and scrape the mud and  pile on a ridge of gravel, after  violating every rule and principle laid down by McAdam.  After doing everything McAdam  told the people, of' England, not  to do, ,the result of, this, statute  labor is called a "macadamized  road.''  Among the earliest roads of  which we have definite' information were those built by the  Romans, chiefly as military tiigli;  ways, leading east and west to  the remote provinces, from  which arose the proverb. "All  roads lead to Rome." So" sub-'  stantially were these roads built  of layer upon layer, of stone and  concrete, three and four feet in  thickness, that many of them  still remain, and are commonly  believed by the peasantry of  Spain and of other countries of  Southern Europe, to be of supernatural origin. These roads  were built at an enormous waste  of money and labor, and, while  of; the greatest durability, they  lack the first essential of modern  construction���a properly balanced union of economy and  efficiency.  TPor several centuries after the  downfall of Rome, roadmaking became a forgotten art. In France  during the eighteenth century,  under the Engineer Tresauguet,  road  construction  was  revived,  but on very different  principles  from   those   followed    by    the  Romans.   The type of road built  by the French engineer was then  introduced into Euglaud by Telford, and consisted of a  foundation of large stones, laid ou edge  and     carefully     shaped,    upon  which   was placed, a coating of  finer broken stone.   Early in the  nineteenth ceuturv, McAdam ad-  vocated and constructed iD Eng-  land'a still more economical  design, in which the foundation of  large    stone   was   omitted,   but  greater care, was given to drainage and    roadbed.      xVIr. Adam's  system "is that" most commonly  followed-, today,   with ' a number  of important: alterations conse  quentf upon  the  introduction of  roadmaking machinery.  In the  time ol  McAdam the  best method  attainable  was  to  break stone by hand, which was  then placed loose on   the  roadway and, left foi"traffic to consolidate.     The  progress of consolidation    was    slow,    during  which a considerable amount 'of  the stone was forced   into and  mixed  with the  earth   subsoil,  injuring, the consistency of the  road.     Under present methods,  by means of a crusher,   stone is  broken much more cheaply than  it could be done by hand.  Stone dust and chips ��� (screenings) are createdun the process  of crushing, which are used to  fill the voids, instead of waiting  for this to be produced by traffic  or allowing the clay or loam from  beneath to be forced up among  the stones. With a road roller  the road metal is made thoroughly compact, forming a strong,  waterproof "covering over a firm  NOT1C.I3.
