Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - July 21, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia or. A a. A Nsasi it. A a my Fol amp amp a build silo in the barn. Than you Hava a combination that defies All weather Happa Ninga. Hero is positively the latest and Cleverest thing in the great silo question. The Cement tank is built in the Center of a circular barn where its contents Are not Only protected against All weather conditions but the animals to be fed Are protected also. The Power Plant in the up to Date barn is easily and cheaply applied for cutting and handling the ens Ilage and the whole arrangement seems to be a Fine application of the old latin phrase a Emu Tum in the word Sale comes from the French and Means ditch or pit and this method of keeping Green forage seems to have been first used by the French people but in the last few years the Farmers of America have surpassed not Only the French people but All others in developing this method of preserving Green forage and of course the american Farmers and manufacturers diseases of tomatoes. Wiit will not yield to spraying Asle of spot poes. A Disenso of the to into a hat is sometimes confused with Leaf spots is properly known As fun ruin Wilt. That this h not in the least affected by the applications of spraying materials to the plants is fully proved in the expert Lents carried on at the Experiment i station of the University of Illinois. A this Wilt has caused the loss of Many a promising crop and the first indication that the plants Are affected is the sudden wilting of entire branches or even the entire Plant. Within a few Days the wilted portions become Brown and dead and an examination of the wilted stems reveals a discoloured Brownish appearance of the wooded portion. The plants May die before any fruit has matured or after any part of the crop has been gathered. The first season that the Wilt appears in a Field usually Only a few plants Are affected but if the Field is used for tomatoes the next year the attack is Likely to be very severe for the disease is carried Over in the soil and the length of time the disease will a remain in badly infected soil is not known. It is therefore important to practice rotation of crops so that the soil will not become badly infected. Care should also be taken in secur lug soils for the Beds in which the plants Are grown. Fresh soil should be put in the Beds each yeah and it should be secured from a part of the farm which has never grown tomatoes nor received the Wash from Tomato Fields. It is also important to avoid inoculating a new Field by Means of soil carried from an infected Field on tools or the feet of men or farm animals. Hofle Fibeck a apr Sweet eos pts i am often asked what is my narrowest escape. Perhaps the following is the closest shave i have had. I was superintending the dispatch of some animals tit the railway station in Hamburg when a half grown elephant which was standing in one of the trucks with its legs chained suddenly turned round and tried to pin me to the Wall. I was at that moment examining a Cage containing monkeys. When i entered the car i knew to elephant was Cross and should have kept my face toward him. Instead of doing so i turned round to look at something and at that moment the brute went for me. He tried to pin me to the Wall but fortunately for me his tusks were too wide apart for him to properly grip me. The tusks just grazed my skin on each Side of my Back. One of my men rushed to the Rescue and pulled me Down Between the animals head and the Wall. They then stood me on my feet to see if my Back was broken. With the exception of torn clothing and a grazed skin i was All rights wide world. Weather proof silo. Have made great improvements in the Art. The original making of ens Ilage was nothing More than in imitation of the. Dog that digs in the ground to cover up and keep a Bone or something else he wanted to keep and eat at a later Date. But while the silo in the ground serves a great Deal better than none at All it Falls Short of being As satisfactory As those built above ground. Of course the practical use of the silo is the keeping of forage in a succulent condition and the most general adaptation is for the use of Dairy cows. In this use of it the consumption of ens Ilage has increased very rapidly in the last Tea years. It May be that a chemical analysis does not prove that forage of any sort contains More Nutriment than the same would have Cut and cured in the regular Way but it has been the experience of ail who have used Good Corn ens Ilage that it is the Best method to preserve Corn for cattle. The digestive nutrients in forage of any sort seems to be kept in a More satisfactory condition As ens Ilage than any other Way. And a far greater Quantity per acre can be got from the land so that any Farmer who keeps Many cattle will be certain to find that the silo is very necessary on his farm. Cheese for the Glass Hen. The a Frost proof Hen May be coming says the Rural new yorker but the Glass Hen is Here and one of her june eggs in january does very Well. Water Glass or silicate of soda is the Best family preservative for eggs and it will pay any Farmer to Breed the Glass Hen. Eggs Laid in april May and june Are Best for preserving. Boil nine Gallons of water. After it has cooled pour in one gallon of water Glass and stir it thoroughly. Put in a Stone Jar and gently place in the mixture about thirty dozen eggs. Get them As close to laying As possible and have them clean. Put the Jar in the cellar or a dark room cover it Over and let it alone until you want the eggs. For family use the Glass Hen is a wonder in its Way a Good partner for Alfalfa vetch and the rest of the farm helpers. Cheer of the Flower % Garden. The Flower Garden May not be a a a As profitable As the vegetable \ a Garden but will add cheer com4� fort and Contentment to the Home.

It May be Well to add says farm Progress that the knife Blade dips downward about three eighths of an Inch in its cheap and Handy Bod Cutter. Width of two and one half inches. The knife can be adjusted to Cut the Sod at the proper thickness. Two men and a boy with a team recently Cut enough Sod to Load a Slat Wagon holding one and one Quarter up blk Yards rolled the Sod and loaded the Wagon in a trifle More than an hour. The Cutter is easily and cheaply made and is a great improvement Over the Spade. Hie comparison.

Whether Prince or plebeian Rich or poor Saint or sinner the Queen upon her throne or the Maiden in the Dairy All must depend upon a common source for food and raiment agriculture. It was thus from the beginning from the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden to the soil product of 1911, from the time of the airy costume of eve to the More pretentious apparel of her Sisters of the present age. Obviously then As population increases and the food Supply becomes a More vital question agriculture will command increasing attention and respect and the Husbandman attain an importance among his Fellows of mounting almost to Jacob c.

Even the Brilliant Victory of our arms was j placed in total eclipse by this Irr Para j ble loss. From the first when the shy Puritan professor of the Virginia j military Institute had startled the or Mies by his extraordinary daring and military skill.

Curious Reservoir Quot Quot j the use to which Baobab Trees Are put in Africa. people of the Kordofan province Africa list Baobab Trees As reservoirs for the scanty water of that District. The Trees have to be prepared carefully int this use the Large branches Are first Cut off near the trunk. If this is not done the trunk is Apt to split a soon As it is hollowed out. A Hole is Cut in the trunk generally just above a Branch which serves As a platform for the Man who is filling the tree and the Interior is hollowed out. Round the Bottom of the tree a shallow Basin some Twenty or thirty feet in diameter is made in which the Rainwater collects. As soon As there is a storm the people go out and fill their Trees. The water so stored remains perfectly Good until the end of the next hot weather or even longer. A few Trees naturally hollow have a Hole at the top Between the branches and fill themselves the branches catching the water and act-1 lug As gutters. These Are called a Lagai a and Are highly valued. the system gives a Cistern Twenty feet High Aud from eight to ten feet or even More in diameter.

Tie a crat service la a hard game to tackle but like All kinds of work it has its easy jobs. One of them la that of special agent for a Railroad. The agent la supposed to Trace those who Aten i or destroy Railroad property. When he is notified that a trunk or other article of baggage is missing he finds out by its number from where it was sent and follows it on the books to the last station where it has been checked. Then he notifies the police in the Vicinity Between the station where the baggage was last checked and the station where it should have been chocked. The police get Busy and probably the property is soon recovered and the thieves put in jail. The baggage is then turned Over to the special agent who notifies the Railroad of Lucial that he has recovered the stolen goods. If a freight car is robbed the special agent pursues the same tactics lie finds nut where the ear was last sealed and the place where the car was reported As having its Quot Seal broken. The police or constables in the country Between the two Points Are notified and if they. Fall to capture the robbers the Railroad May never hear again of the stolen goods.

The one shown herewith fills the Bill very Well. It consists of a Blade a handle set As shown Aud a Bow re enforced with wire wound around it at various Points. Preferably this Bow should be of Well seasoned Hickory Ash or some other Tough but not too heavy Wood. Tragic tale of a rat. The Story of the Luck of the How Lis is Well known and Down to very recent times no member of that family would permit a rat to be put to death. It was said that about the year 1750 the Twenty sixth Baron Howth was giving a banquet to his friends when a rat rushed into the Hall followed by several dogs and. Jumping on the table. Sat up before lord Howth As if appealing for Protection. Lie saved its life and from that moment it never quilted him. At last he set out Oil a foreign tour accompanied by his brother. Who persuaded him to leave the rat behind. Sitting in n hotel at Marseilles the door suddenly flew open and the rat dripping wet came crawling in and went straight to the fire to dry itself. Lord How lies brother enraged at the intrusion seized the poker and dashed out the rates brains. A you have murdered me a exclaimed lord Howth and instantly fell Down and Loudon tit bits. Handy one Man crosscut saw. It is not necessary to have very much Spring in the Bow. Although some Spring adds rigidity and tension to the saw. Which can thus be run More easily. The most important Points for the winding Are toward the ends. Where the pole is split by sawing to admit the Blade. The pole should be 1 Only a few inches longer than the saw when Laid out straight. Strict school rules. John Woolev held that school children should do without holidays altogether. When he opened k lugs Wood school in 1748 he announced that a the children of tender parents so called have no business Here for the rules will not be broken in favor of any person whatsoever. Nor is any child received unless his parents agree that he shall observe All the rules of the House and that they will not take him from school no not for a Day till they take him for Good and further no play Days were permitted and no time was Ever allowed for play of the ground that he who plays when he is a child will play when he becomes a Man.

Whatever his system May have been it was subsequently neglected and forgotten but was reintroduced by Charlemagne the various stops and symbols being designed by warn Fried and Alcuin. The present system of punctuation was introduced in the latter part of the fifteenth Century by Aldus Mantius a venetian Printer who was responsible for our period Colon semicolon , Marks of interrogation and exclamation parenthesis Aud dash Hyphen apostrophe and quotation Marks. These were subsequently copied by other printers until their use became Universal. Most ancient languages were innocent of any system of punctuation.

Blood or its fluid constituent serum is poured into the meshes of the surrounding connective tissue which is delicate spongy Disten sible and cellular and the Well known bump or Lump is quickly formed.
