What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

During this period au tomobile registrations have doubled, while the number of motor vehicles on the road is five times as great as In 1916. In 1918 hurse drawn and BP tor-vehicle traffic were almost equal In volume. In 1021 horse-drawn traffic had decreased only slightly in volume and constituted 10 per cent of the traf fic, motor vehicles constituting 84 per cent. Observations In this and other conn- lies lead to the conclusion that volume of traffic may increase in much great er proportion’ than the number of mo tor vehicles and will also depend to a large degree on the condition of Im provement of the road and on the eco nomic conditions In the adjacent ter rttory. BLAST-FURNACE SLAG TESTS Uss of Material for Road Conatruc tion to Bo Given Toot by Buroau of Roado. Blast furnace slag as a material for concrete road construction is to he thoroughly studied by (lie burenu of public roads, United States Depart ment of Agriculture, With the enor mous demand for road building mate rial, officials say, economy demands the use of material dose at hand wherever possible, and tlie bureau is now con duetlnjfTnYestigatlons of different ma terials with this It view. Great quantities of slag are to be found at blast furnaces in various parts of the country. Samples from 82 plants have been collected and will be made into concrete and tested for resistance to wear, strength, water absorption and general utility. These results will be compared with similar tests made on other materials. In addition to the laboratory teats It Is possible that the experiments will be followed by an Inspection of a number of concrete roads built with slag as the coarse material. These roads will be selected In various parts of the country and the reports, to gether with the laboratory tests, will furnish Information which e$n be fully relied upon. MANY WORKERS ON HIGHWAYS According to Figures Given Out by Builders' Association, 114,325 Persons A rt Engaged. According to statistics given out by the American Road Builders’ associa tion there are 114,825 persons engaged In road building work. There are 80,000 federal, state, town and eotmty highway officials, 7,000 road contrac tors, 2,000 bridge contractors, 15,000 civil and highway engineers, 10,000 automotive and chemical engineers and 825 geologists.

But their life was rich In legend and tra dition—-stories handed down from gen eration to generation until they came to l*e a part of that great mass of ma terial which, for luck of better uuuie, we must call aboriginal literature. . These ancient warriors knew noth ing of rending and writing. But they were philosophers in their way, even as they were students of nature and keen observers of every tiling about them. Like children they were curi ous—and lacking fact they wove their own theories concern lug the life they lived and the environment which they knew. Today the Indian ntpldly^is disap pearing. Swept away from his mit ral haunts by the white man, Im re mains u mere remnant of the great race which once knew no superior In all tiie great region. But the legends still live; monuments to the philoso phies of the tribesmen who gave them birth. Of ail the Indian legends now ex istent, none ts more interesting than the Navajo legend of creation. Here It is us told the writer by Naviijo Bill, who In turn Imd It from tlie Navajo ehiefratns whom he knew fifty years ago wlmn first he visited tiie reserva tion which inis since been his home in (lie dim ami distant ages when time was young the Nuvnjos lived in tt world of darkness, deep under ground Then there was no sunlight to firing w arnuli ami Joy , no bright rays of sunshine to make the coni grow or Ihe fruit ripen There was no night and no day for all was darkness and even Ihe beasts and Ihe birds were unable to see their way about, but could only wander In darkness, know tug not whither tHey went or lmw they came. In those days the Naviijos were un happy, but they knew not how or where lo I urn to heroine luipp.v But one day a warrior, more bold ilnin the others, set out on a Journey to find a new home for himself and bis people. Long lie urged tlie oilier chieftains to aeeompany him but they were afraid, so finally tie went mil alone and umu' cnmpnuled. For many days lie wandered in the darkness, stumbling over hill and dale, through wafer and over high places, until he was nearly exhausted But Still he kept on, and finally he looked up, and there, far above him, was u bole, and through tlie hole a faint light was shining and a single star looked down upon him In all Its radiance. Ami the warrior was much pleased. So, with Hie light of the single star to guide him, he gathered together many trees. And lie killed a deer ami wdt.li tiie skin of (lie deer lie hound tiie trees together until tie had made for himself a great ladder; and I lien, climbing tlie ladder, tie finally readied tiie eelling of darkness and through tlie hole lie looked into a new world. When he had rested, he climbed through the hole and Into u new world —a world of silver light and shadow— where all was not darkness, but where he was able to see objects about him. In this wmrld there was a moon, and stars to light the way—and there was no darkness, but a silver light from the stars and the moon that made a world of twilight and evening But the warrior was much pleased —for ire had never known a greater light than this. So he rested and feasted and glept for many days until tie became lonely and bethought himself of his tribesmen who had remained behind. So he gathered together a grout bun dle of moonbeams and, with these on on his back to tight the way, he de scended again into the world of dark ness, and with a light heart went in search of his tribesmen. When he had returned Rgain his tribesmen gave him a great welcome, for they thought Mm lost, and they made him chief of the tribe, and w hen he had told them his story, appointed Mm a guide to lead them to the new world where there was moon and stars and tight and happiness. When, by and by. the tribe had reached the ladder, they climbed into the new world one by one, r.n-il they we« aH there—warriors and squaws and children; and aB the beasts and the birds, too. they lifted cp> w‘:h them Into the new world; and they were very ha;>py. TV name of the new world they called “Kalelae.* and to the warrior who h ad led them there they gave the « m e ed “<T«is-CM-E-Ge.\ Se It was that the Nava Jos, who were «nr forefather*, cane ©nt ed the world t i darkness into the world of
