Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - July 28, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Silos like this $275. Foolish to farm without Thom now. Inc roast values up to 25 per cent. It does not pay to devote land for Long periods to pasturage and the production of Hay. The land can be put to More profitable use. Such is the testimony of George p. Grout the Dairy expert of Minnesota. During the last to amp or years More silos have been built than have previously been constructed altogether. The More prosperous Farmers Are often supplied with two Good silos. The silo professor Grout asserts practically increases the producing Ca Bui Xiding a stays silo. Parity of the farm at least 10 per cent and often More. A 1g0 acre farm with a silo will produce As much Revenue As one of Iso acres without. The first Cost of a silo like that of a dwelling House a barn or a team should be considered part of the initial investment and if ones capital is limited it is better to buy a farm smaller by 10 per cent rather than dispense with a silo. The producing value of a silo on fifty Dollar land would be equal to that of Twenty acres added to the 1g0 acre farm or $1,000. $100 land it would be $2,000. This is a Low estimate for the Stock carrying capacity of the farm will often be increased fully 25 per cent by the addition of a silo. As compared with its producing value the Cost of constructing the silo is Small. Round wooden silos Cost from $1.50 to $3 per ton of capacity those of Stone Brick or Cement from $2 to $4. It has been shown by actual Experiment in Minnesota that working co operatively in the Purchase of materials Etc., a number of Farmers in a locality May erect on each of their farms a stave silo similar to the one in the illustration of 140 to 150 tons capacity for about $275. T get out of the average. A a average farming is not now \ \ and never has been profitable but it is the Only kind of farming that average Farmers can do. Improvement in men is reflected in All their works. Better men Quot can be developed by teaching children the simple science of agriculture. To raise the average of crop yields involves an uplift of society As a whole. A a education is a National problem. New facts old manures. Values of the various sorts of fertilizer set Forth briefly. Horse manure from City stables usually contains 70 to. 75 per cent of water in the form in which such manure reaches the Farmer. The solid portion of such manure contains of nitrogen from 0.5 to 0.s per cent phosphoric acid 0.3 to 0.3 per cent Potash 0.5 to 0.7 per cent Lime 0.5 to 0.8 per cent with traces of magnesia. The drier the manure the larger the Quantity of actual Plant food elements in the ton. Computing the above named quantities of nitrogen therein As Worth 20 cents per Pound phosphoric acid and Potash each 4 cents a Pound the valuation of horse manure of the above Range of composition works out from $2.04 to $4.10 per ton. Sheep manure from stockyards and Slaughter houses is sometimes sold in the Market either under its own name or As so called Quot natural analysis of three such samples sold in Connecticut showed them to contain about As much nitrogen phosphoric acid and Potash As could be bought in the form of fertiliser chemicals for $11 or $12. The sheep manure sold at from $23 to $33 a ton. But As the station report Bays it must also be remembered that 30 per cent of sheep manure consists of Fine vegetable matter which forms humus in the soil and has distinct value in feeding the soil bacteria and in regulating the water Content of the soil. A curious fertilizing material comes in Small quantities from silk Mills. It is called Quot cocoon dust and consists of the dead bodies of silkworms. The Connecticut station found it to be extraordinarily Rich in nitrogen containing nearly 10 per cent of this substance also Small quantities of phosphoric acid and Potash. Sewage waste May be profitable As a fertilizer. The sludge which accumulates on the Sand Beds used for the purification of sewage at Rockville was found by the Connecticut station to contain of water 08 per cent of nitrogen 1.34 per cent with traces of phosphoric acid and Potash. This material has almost three times As much nitrogen As stable manure but it is probably much less available to crops a because the More soluble and valuable part of the nitrogen has been removed by water and microbe action. Nevertheless if it can be got for the hauling it might pay for a Short haul to plow agriculturist sins of the fathers. Fair girls i am sure papa would not object to you but i no afraid Mamma will. She says your family have depraved tastes. Rich grocers son Good gracious where did she get that idea fair girls i think she judges by the butter that your father used to recommend As Good. A queer legend. Fedor Kosmuch the Hermit May Hava been a russian Czar. A curious legend is associated with the name of Alexander i. Russia. It is to the effect that the emperor in 1825 was sojourning in the Crimea. When near Tagan Rog his Coachman by some Means managed to overturn the Carriage of a court courier named Markof who was killed. The emperor wishing to rid himself of the cares of state so the Story runs caused it to be reported that it was he himself who was killed. Then he carried out a plan which he had for Long conceived of retiring to Siberia and living there under an assumed name. Schulder. The historian professes to have satisfied himself that at Alt events the remains in the Cathedral of Peter and Paul Are those of the courier. Shilder asserts that he Learned this much from the children of Markof. According to the legend. Alexander i. Russia died in Siberia in 1864, but history records that to died at Tagan Rog in 1823. It seems that in 1. 23 a mysterious stranger appeared in Siberia. He gave his name As Fedor Kosmeh and never revealed any other or the place whence he came lie lived the life of a Hermit and was received generally with respect. In 1s3g he accepted the invitation of a Rich merchant to take up his abode in ills House at Tomsk. There he was very retired and held communication Only with mile. Kro Raof and the Myc chant her father. Every one who saw him was struck with his extraordinary resemblance to the defunct Czar. The grand Duke Nicholas Mecl Gallovitch contributed an article in the revue nist Orique in which he denied the sensational part of the Story hut admitted that the Hermit of Siberia might have been a natural brother of Alexander Globe. The Catskill gnomes. Legend of the ugly elves and Hendrick Hudson and his men. In the Catskill mountains Back of grand hotel station is a Large Amphitheater where Indian legend tells us. Live the ugly Little Catskill dwarfs with Bushy beards and eyes like pigs who can do Many marvelous things. They work Surpas singly Well in met fits and it 1b from their forges that in autumn comes the Haze of Indian summer. But their most marvelous feat is the brewing of a liquor which shortens the bodies and swells the Heads of All who drink it. It was to their tender mercies that Hendrick Hudson and his men fell having landed from the Naif Moon and lost their Way among the mountains. The gnomes held a mad carouse in their Honor catering and dancing around the Amphitheater and bringing Forth great to Lagos of their magic wine. Hudson and his men drank freely and deeply Only to become misshapen ugly dwarfs from that time Forth. Since then tilt have wandered around the Catskill mountains appearing to men once in Twenty years. The last time they were due to be seen was in 1909. So now they will not appear again until 1929, when any one daring enough can go up to the mountains to test for himself the truth of the Phebe Eldridge id new York world. Irish Brogue. It is really the old time method of pronouncing English. Perhaps nothing illustrates better he Vicissitudes of pronunciation in1 English than a study of what is called the a Irish this Lingual Mode for it is scarcely to be called a dialect is usually presumed to be a deterioration of language due to Lack of education and Contact with legitimate sources of English. It proves after a Little study to he a preservation of Tho old method of pronouncing English which has come Down to a great degree unchanged in Ireland from Shakespeare s time. In Elizabeth a time however it came to be realized that if there was to be any real affiliation of the two countries then the Irish language must be supplanted by English and a definite Effort in this direction was made. This change of speech resented and resisted was nevertheless successfully accomplished All Over the Island except in the West within a decade after Shakespeare a death. This fact takes on a new significance when we study what we now Call the Irish Brogue in connection with what is known to have been the pronunciation of English at that time. The two Are found to conform in practically every respect. Irishmen pronounce English As their forefathers Learned it and have preserved its pronunciation because they have been away from the main current of English speech variation Ever Magazine. Maddened the Bear. Ingenious trap that was formerly used by the mexicans. The mexicans in California had an ingenuous method of trapping bears before the Advent of the Yankees brought Modem firearms into the Region. A piece of meat was nailed to the Stout horizontal limb of an Oak tree. From a limb five or six feet above a rope was suspended to the end of which a Large Stone was made fast so that it Hung about six inches above and a trifle nearer the trunk than the meat on the lower limb. When a Bear smelled the meat from afar he would climb up the tree and make his Way to the bait in doing so he would push the Stone pendulum to one Side. Just As he was about to fasten his Teeth in the meat the Stone would swing Back and bang his head. This would arouse the anger of the Bear and he would give the Stone a sweep of his Paw which would Send it swinging farther out the consequence was a harder bang and More anger. The More he struck the Stone the harder he would be hit in return until from ferocious anger he would lose his caution and attack the pendulum with All his vigor. One powerful sweep then bang and Bruin would be tumbled out of the tree to the rocks below where disabled by his fall he would be at the mercy of those who set he trap whenever they chose to take him. The Handy Man. His Job of varnishing the door was not a howling Success. .

Westminster Hall where Hie Challenge used to be uttered. Westminster Hall in London waa built originally by King will Lippi Rufus 1056-1100 and tradition goes that the Oak of its ceilings was brought from the Forest of shillelagh in Ireland Timber which possessed Peculiar properties rendering it hateful to spiders and their webs. Richard ii. Transformed the Hail. Leaving the old Walls standing he buttressed them strongly and raised Over them the magnificent roof of Oak which is ,1111 extant Ami intact. It is ninety two feet High. The length of the Hall is 290 feet its breadth sixty eight feet. It was Large enough for mounted men to enter in order to Challenge any who would dispute the rights of the King a ceremony that is quaintly described As follows on the Occi Ion of the it Foro nation of Richard Iii. And Queen Anne in 1483 a in the afternoon the King and Queene entered the Hall and the King sate in the midle and be Queene on be left Side of the table and on every Side of her stood a Countesse Bolding a cloth of Pleasance when she listed for to drink. And on the right hand of be King sate be archbishop of Canterbury. The ladies sate All on one Side in be midle of the Hall and at the table against them sate the Chancellor and All the lords. And at the table next the cupboard sate be mayor of London. At the second course came into be Hall or.

Wild and bloody scenes when Tho natives get intoxicated. the unpleasant drinking customs of certain nations in new Guinea Walter Goodfellow writes Quot we did not find the people Down by the coast nearly so tractable or companionable As those at the headwaters of the River. They were also much More quarrelsome among themselves. They tap a species of sugar Palm up the River and make fermented drink out of it on this they get fearfully intoxicated and wild orgies take place All Day. Parties of them would go off in canoes and sit under the Palms from which the drink was obtained. In the morning they would return extremely Dunk and fights used to be the result a sometimes these fights lasted for two Days at a time. In our Vicinity they More often than not took place it night the natives then made such an indescribable Din with their howling and their noises that we could not sleep at our base Camp. Spears and showers of arrows were discharged in All directions and one could hear the sound of their axes dealing blows on the bodies of the combatants. Quot after a time the women would join in the fray and their shrill voices added to the Babel making the noise greater than Ever. When they became involved in the fights they seemed to be worse than the men. The cries were not like sounds emitted by human beings but rather like the cries of news. Done to use wet feed. There is no advantage in moistening the meal portion of the cows ration. It is better to Force her to thoroughly Mast Cate her feed rather than to Aid her in swallowing it quickly. Mixing of the feed with the saliva of the Tenouth helps in its digestion. The fluid secreted by the Mouth is quite important in digesting feeds Rich in starch. If the Grain is moistened there is less saliva secreted and therefore the digestion of the feed is More or less impaired. A for posterity Aye even unto the third and fourth generation.

Table knives. Incident that changed them from pointed to rounded ends. Table knives Are invariably made with rounded ends. Did it Ever occur to you to wonder Why they Are of this shape instead of pointed like any other knife Blade perhaps you May imagine that the ends were rounded As a Protection to life and limb in those turbulent Days when men Drew their swords or any other available lethal weapon at the very slightest provocation. But this is not the Case. The Story goes and it is fairly Well substantiated that the great Cardinal Richelieu had a guest to dinner whose manners at the table far from being All that could be desired. The Climax was reached when the fellow after finishing the meat course began to pick his Teeth with Quot his table knife at that Date made with a Sharp Point. The guest being a Man of birth and importance the Cardinal could not openly remonstrate hut next stay he gave orders that the Point of every knife in the establishment should be rounded off. Before the end of the Century his example was universally followed and the pointed knife at table had answers. Swimming ghosts. Lecturing before the camera club. . Francis Ward said that in an attempt to photograph fish in their natural surroundings he had constructed a Pond with an observation chamber let in at the Side below the surface of the water. Through the window of this chamber unseen by the fish he could watch and photograph their movements. He discovered by this Means that the Protection of fish when in their natural state is much More thorough than is generally supposed. All Silvery fish were in reality merely mirrors in the water reflecting the tone and Quot color of their surroundings so As to appear to their fellow fish Gray unsubstantial swimming ghosts hardly to be distinguished at All. It was Only when the Dace for example Rose to the surface causing its body to reflect Light that the Pike at the Bottom of the Pond could see and go for its Little graphic. Uncalled for Courtesy.
