Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - February 25, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia R fight Thi wild Carrot. This Weed is a great spreader but not very hard to eradicate. The wild Carrot familiarly known As a a Birds a nest or a Queen Annex a lace a 3 is found on wild land and along the roads in the Eastern half of the United states and Canada. It came Here from England. It produces Flower stalks from Oue to three feet High and has tall slender hollow stems and a finely Cut Leaf. The Flowers Are White and the clusters with the stems resemble an umbrella. It has a very Strong suffocating odor when in Bloom and this with its nectar attracts scores of insects. It blooms from june to september. The Large number of insects which visit it make Polle Niza Tion almost sure which partly accounts for the readiness with which it spreads says farm and fireside. It is a biennial and the first season it produces rather Low vegetative growth. The second season it sends up Long Flower stems. The seeds Are very numerous and if the Flower stems Are Cut Down before seed has been formed new stems will come up. This Weed is a Demon to spread but not very hard to eradicate. Good Cul made from scrap Iron. How some old material May be turned into a useful tool. On every farm there is sure to accumulate in time a considerable amount of old Iron. This is always saved with the idea that some of it can be utilized for various purposes and with the knowledge that the remainder can be sold As old Iron. It is Good Economy to save this material and it is a Good plan to sort it More or less closely so that similar articles ig.2 photograph by Iowa state College of a of culture. Wild Cabbot. Tiva Tion will keep it out of cropped Fields especially where there is a rotation including one or More cultivated crops. In permanent pastures along roads and in other places not cultivated it should be Cut Down with the scythe. This must be clone repeatedly to keep the new Flower stems that Spring up from carrying their seeds to maturity but persistent cutting will kill the Weed out generally in two years. If the weeds Are not too numerous they can be killed off individually once and for All by cutting the Root underground with a Spud Sharp Spade or other Handy implement. Recent tests have indicated that the wild Carrot is vulnerable to several Weed killing sprays. Oue solution that is recommended is sodium Arsenite one Pound to t Wenty six Gallons of water sprayed on when the plants Are dry. A a. A to w. When we have repaired the buildings where our live Stock is kept through the Winter would it t not be Well to visit the a school a House on the Hill and look Over a the buildings where the children y spend the Winter Days tobacco stems for fertilizer. Tobacco stems Are sometimes sold As a fertilizer. If comparatively dry they contain something Over 2 per cent of nitrogen a Trace of phosphoric acid and 5 or g per cent of Potash. They usually retail around $14 a ton and Are Well Worth the Money american agriculturist. Advice to Coen growers. Unless there is an experienced and successful Corn breeder in the Vicinity it who makes a specially of growing first class seed Corn every Farmer had better make his own selection from his own Field or from the Best Fields of neighbouring farms. Try peppers for profit. Peppers May be easily grown in All parts of the country and Market prices Are generally quite Good. Foreigners consume them in Large quantities and americans Are using them More extensively than a few years ago. Pruning note. Currants and gooseberries May be pruned As Scon As the leaves fall or the work May be loft until Early Spring. Cut Back one third of last years growth and thin out surplus diseased or a Thrifty shoots. Iti i i it air j. A a it there Are thousands of dollars oct every year by sowing poor seeds. Do not expect a Good crop when poor seeds Are sown. Seasons Good cultivation and proper fertilization will not compensate for seed from in a Ferio Quot plants. Feeding Mangels. The use of roots and especially Mangels for Dairy cows is still much practice in Nany portions of the United states and Canada. The English Farmers set that Mangels should not be fed until they have been stored about three months for the reason that during the period of storing the Mangel gains Mucor in Dairyman. Chemicals with manure. This is the Way some of to because manure when fertilizer is logo on the crop a Load of manure is put in the spreader and thirty to forty pounds of the chemicals scattered Over it. The result is that the whole thing is evenly new yorker. The Way with weeds. Possession is said to be nine Points of Law. This is certainly True of weeds. When they once get Possession of a Field it takes about nine times the labor to get rid of them than would be needed of they had been held in Check from the Start. Useful in making wire joints. From the Kansas Farmer May be together. Use for something from this scrap pile May be found almost daily. For instance an old Wagon tire May be Cut straightened out and used As the connecting Rod on a Wagon Brake. _ in the Cut shown herewith there is indicated a Way in which a very useful tool May be made from the half of an old strap hinge. This homemade tool is for use in making wire joints or couplings and the picture shows pretty Well How it is used. As the Loop on the Ordinary hinge is generally too Small to accommodate a two or three strand wire the picture is drawn to show this Loop Cut off and the end of the hinge Bent Over to form a new one. Before this new Loop is made a Section of the hinge should be filed away As shown so As to give a grip on the end of the a Nice smooth wire coupling or splice not Only adds much to its appearance but increases its life As Well. A Good joint does not pull apart and with the Aid of this tool it is just As easy to make a Good smooth joint As a poor one and it lasts. A Kansas Farmer. It the Dane buys our cottonseed t and linseed meal and exports a butter keeping All the Fertility 4 on his soil. Can the Dane teach Al us anything 4 method for old Orchards. Professor w. N. Munson recommends for treatment of old Orchards to plow As Early As possible in the Spring Harrow at once and apply about 500 pounds of fertilizer to the acre then Harrow about once in two weeks until the Middle of August when a cover crop of Rye or Spring vetch should be sown. In working among the Trees he finds the traceless harness of great value. The exact time and method of tillage Are not so important As to be sure that a fair if count of tillage is cultivator. For tying up shocks. A Handy thing to use in tying up Corn or fodder shocks bore a three eighths Inch Hole in a Broomstick pass through this a piece of clothesline six inches Shorter than a Hay baling wire. In the end of the line tie a three Inch ring. Go around the Shock with the line and stick place the stick through the ring and pull it through. Then you can tithe Shock with baling wire. For an underground tank. We have the Assurance of the scientific american that the Best material for an underground tank is heavy Black Sheet Iron thoroughly painted with Iron paint or some preserving compound. This is said to be More durable than galvanized Iron especially in some soils and where electric currents exist. The hum of the hive. The principal products Honey and Wax were never in greater demand than at the present time and beekeeping bids fair to soon take a higher rank among the productive industries than As hitherto been accorded it. There is but one kind of Lioney for the Farmer to produce for Liis own use and that is a pc Funk a comb Honey Cut out of the Frame and put into jars to be kept. When a Queen is no longer Young some instinct teaches the bees that they should look ahead and prepare for future contingencies. The doctrine so frequently enunciated a keep Only Young Queens a is simply a lesson taught us by the Wisdom of the bees. The Long nights May be turned to Good account by the Handy Man in the mending of supers etc., that May not be in use. The work can be done thoroughly As there is no hurry As in the summer when the whole of the parts and fitting Are upon Active service so to speak. Done to set the hives in neat scrws with the entrances All facing one Way. They can be placed in pairs but the pairs should be scattered As widely As possible. This is an important Point Blit it would take a Page to explain All the whys. It is Well to open up and ventilate the Bee cellar occasionally for an hour or to after dark and to sweep and gather up Auy dead bees that May have accumulated on the cellar floor. Why be Content with ten or Twenty pounds of surplus Honey per hive when a Little careful manipulation will mean seventy five or even Ico pounds from every prosperous Colony in a Good season _ possibly.

Japanese Logio. A teacher of English in Japan recently gave As an examination question a what is a ventilator a besides the number of answers that were approximately Correct there were two which indicated that the students must have been absent either in body or mind on the Day Ellen the schoolroom ventilator had been discussed. The first was a the ventilator lives in the mountains a the second a Columbus was a great when occasion offered the teacher reminded his class that attention and application Are requisite for acquiring knowledge and seriously asked them Why any Oue should have Given an answer such As tie one concerning Columbus. One of the Best spokesmen in the class essayed an explanation somewhat As follows a Columbus brought new ideas Back to the old world he changed the current of thought Aud opened a great door into the new and outer world therefore he was a great youths companion. N washing your hand when you go to the washstand and carefully Wash your hands with a generous application of soap Aud Bard Brush do not think for an instant that your hands Are clean. The tenacious microbe refuses to be disturbed and clings to the flesh throughout the whole operation. There Are some chemical compounds which will dislodge the Busy Bacilli to a certain extents but not entirely. According to the investigations of a medical authority of the prussian army the Best results in the direction of giving the hands a sanitary cleaning Are accomplished by the use of alcohol. A Bath of pure alcohol will remove about 99 per cent of the germs. Where it is desired to clean the hands hygienically it is recommended that the hands be not first washed with water for this will so adulterate the alcohol that it cannot accomplish its work As effectively As otherwise. The Story of a famous hymn. The famous hymn beginning a god moves in a mysterious Way a Kii own As a a Cowper a hymn a had its origin As follows Cowper was All his life the victim of melancholia and More than once attempted suicide. One Day Bent upon destroying himself he got into a cab and ordered the Driver to take him to a certain Point on tie River where he intended to drown himself. The Cabman noticing his strange appearance and feeling that All might not be right with him drove him about the City and finally stopped in front of the poets door. Stepping out and recognizing the old familiar surroundings and shocked at the thought of his narrow escape Cowper exclaimed a god moves in a mysterious Way his wonders to perform a and. Rushing in immediately composed the immortal hymn.

When he finally reaches Iceland he will see the Sun set about 11 40 of clock and Rise again shortly after 12 of clock the Golden glow of the Sunset mingling with the Golden glow of the Sunrise. All these delights cannot be assured to the Winter traveler to Iceland. In fact he will be obliged to keep his lamp burning until 10 30 in the morning and then Light it again at 2 of clock in the . W. F. Crafts to Christian Herald. Volcanic Monument. Wonderful old a slanting Rook Noar Portland Oro. One of the most remarkable rocks in the world is that known As the a balancing Rock a which stands on the Bank of the Willamette River a Short distance above the City of Portland or. Rising from a Broad base is a Small column roughly round in shape. Just above this is a huge mass of Reck bearing a tree on the Summit the total height of Rock and column being about a Hundred feet. Although n great Deal larger and heavier than the pillar on which it stands the big Rock is very accurately balanced. For How Many centuries this Odd Freak has stood not even the Wisest scientists Are Able to determine but it has evidently been there for a very Long period. The entire Rock is of a volcanic nature and the most singular thing about it is the fact that the Knob and pillar Are entirely disjointed from one another. Wind and Wither no doubt Are slowly wearing uie a balancing Rock away but the process is so imperceptible that falling some unforeseen catastrophe the Monument Wilt probably endure for Many wide world Magazine. The menus Kletske. Out of loyalty to i own Star the manager of the to Oman a suit department discharged his Young woman stenographer and hired a Man. The first Batch of letters dictated to the Man were written to about a Hundred old customers whom he invited to examine privately n lot of exclusive garments before they were placed on Bale. The Day after the letters were mailed the women flocked into the store but the fire that burned in their eyes was the fire of the Avenger rather than of the bargain Hunter. One word which each woman had underlined in her letter explained their Wrath. The garments so the manager had meant to say had been designed for women of Stock figure such As they possessed but the Mulc stenographer had drawn on the alphabet and had written it a no woman on Earth would have been guilty of such a mistake a growled the manager the next week the girl stenographer had her Job Ledger. Great men tall and Short. A recent investigator has attempted to show that Lombroso and his follow ers were wrong in asserting that men of Genius were of Small stature. Of 230 individuals of Eminence he found that figures were obtainable for 103 of these sixteen were of Middle height fifty eight above and Twenty nine below. Americans particularly combined greatness with inches. Jefferson and Jackson were More than six feet tall. Sumner was six feet four inches and Washington Lincoln and Beecher were More than six feet. Among famous foreigners Tolstoy was a Large Man and so were Thackeray Bismarck and Darwin. On the contrary Many of the worlds greatest geniuses were undersized and even deformed. Napoleon Poe Pope Alexander the great Nelson Blake and Caesar were Small men. After All is said Genius is no respecter of York american.

In in King up an Amateur actor should remember that As Little paint As possible should be used for while it is easy to disguise by a thick mask of pigment the heavier the makeup the the Man with a cold. The sympathy in to the Man with a hard cold is purely perfunctory. We know or at least we think we know that he will not die. We know that he is thoroughly wretched yet we Are equally certain that in three Days or so he will be coming upstairs two at a time. This does not Comfort him though he May know it himself. He therefore feels himself an outcast a pariah. He is Cut off from the Ordinary human relations. If he so much As kisses his wife or child he is a blackguard mentally self convicted of it.

The Days Are Shorter the work rougher. Of course much depends upon the character of the farm. Considerable Leisure is possible where few cattle Are kept and general trucking done. But always there Are the a remarkably elastic express j Slos that a doing it May mean much or nettle.

If it is possible to arrange ones own hair in a Way suitable to the character so much the better for though it May in no Way seem More real than a wig. It will prove infinitely More comfortable. When the actor looks As much like the part As he possibly can without the Aid of artificial disguise he begins to apply nose paste paint and powder Boll win rating one characteristic and accentuating another painting the eyebrows out and redrawing them changing the color of the skin putting shadows around the eyes and sinister lines running from the nostrils. He adds a roughly shaped Beard or Mustache of Crape hair if the character demands it harpers weekly. N credit dept. Wonderful hats.
