Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - June 2, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Farm and Garden i " Drain Grade must be even. Slightest inequality causes Slit a \u25a0� posits and clogs the current. A matter of prime importance id laying tile for drainage of wet land la that of getting an even Grade or fall to the ditch Bays professor m. E. Sher win in the progressive Farmer and Gazette. If the tile in the Bottom forms waving line or change from a Given Grade to a Grade less Steep there May always be expected an accumulation of Silt due to the less rapid flow of water within the tile which will Drain. Silt basins May be put in to admit of cleaning out this material at intervals but just As far As possible the Deposit of it should be prevented by getting an even Grade so that there is no tend Eucy for accumulation. This even Grade May be obtained by the use of a very simple piece of apparatus. One which any Farmer can easily make and use. Take a piece of 1 by 6 Inch Pine Board a. Sixteen feet Long. Fasten securely to the ends of this two pieces b b. Each nine feet Long and have them meet above the Middle of the piece a. The joint at c May be made by lapping the ends or the ends May be Cut slanting so that they fit up against each other being held by a Small strip nailed across on either Side. A fourth strip a should be fastened As indicated to b a two inches above Board a. A plumb Bob will now be Hung from a Hook at the joint 0 by a piece of one Iron or Copper wire so that it will hang within six inches of the ground. Now get the piece a level this is important and Mark the place on d where the wire Bangs. Block one end of a up from the floor one half Inch by putting under it a piece of Wood of this thickness and Mark again on d where the wire hangs. It will not hang where it did before but nearer the lower end. Take the Block out and place under the other end again marking on d where it hangs. Repeat this operation with a Block one and one half inches thick and with blocks plumb Fob level Rill to. Two two and one half and three inches thick. Be sure to measure the thick Ness of each Block. When the plumb Bob hangs across the first Mark made on d we have the Board exactly level. When the Bob swings one two or three spaces either Way we have a Grade of one half Inch one Inch or one and one half inches respectively in sixteen feet. By placing thin in the Bottom of the ditch we can Tell How much the Grade is at any place and by moving it we can Tell whether or not our Grade is uni form All the Way. If not uniform Pecan make it so by scraping off the higher places. It is necessary that the Bottom of the Board a be a straight end. The scale la marked on the Board d so that it will not be liable to become covered with dirt As if placed on the Board a. A plumb Bob gives a greater accuracy than a Carpenter s level or other level placed on one of the boards Andis also adapted for More varied piece of apparatus is As Oce rate when carefully made As any Survey or s level and can be used to advantage either with or without a Survey or s level Fop getting the desired Grade Drai Iju its special use is for de Teiml Flag when the Grade is uniform lit costs Little and is easily made. Noone can fail to understand its use. \u25a0 i he he my i i i i i he i a " % a fitting Horbes for shows.

At a resent examination of the state undertaking Board among the questions Allied of the Many applicants was the following one what do you consider As an infallible sign of death a Crape on the door answered one. Chicago Jaq Kraal. Healthton the farm. Four Gana rations of one family work together it fled. That health and Long life Are found on the farm has Long been known. Life in the open air with sound sleep and wholesome food Means health and a Busy body Means a contented mind and Little Wear and tear on nerves. I the accompanying picture shows four generations of one family at work four generations at work. In a Field on a Long Island farm. All Are sturdy and Happy. It is Seldom indeed that four generations will be found engaged in a gainful occupation in a City. Country school spoils Good Farmers. Vocational training is enlisting As never before the interest and Effort of business men and educators in several Western states. For two years cer Tain Bankers in Minnesota have promoted it very actively their Commer Cial interest in farm properties and people leading them to do so. They have found that of 435,000 school Chil Dren educated at a Cost of $14,000,000 annually fewer than 1,800 attend Agri cultural schools. In a state which has Only one third of the tillable land within its 84,000 Square Miles under cultivation Over 90 per cent of the children Are being trained to be con Sumers and Only four tenths of 1 per cent to be producers. The present school system even in the country was Tufts found to be educating Chil Dren away from the farms spoiling k Ood Farmers and not making Good ? try the Bankers offered prizes for the i test answer to the question Why am1 going to leave the farm the boy who won first prize Laid stress on the fact that most of the school arms Are town girls or girls from town schools and Don t like country life. Their attitude helps to sow dissatisfaction among the pupils."?Survey. The food that plants Are ten essential elements of Plant food. Five of these Are provided by nature in abundance Viz Carbon and oxygen secured by the growing Plant directly from the air Hydrogen from water absorbed by the Earth Iron and Sulphur supplied by he soil. The remaining five elements Are Trogen phosphorus potassium magnesium and Calcium. The Supply and Ibera Tjon of these five constitute the foundation of permanent agriculture on All cult Vatable soils in humid sections. Nitrogen exists in the air i absolutely inexhaustible amount an for general farming can be secure from the air most economically by the growing of legume crops. If these crops Are slowed under nitrogen is thus increased and additional organic matter supplied which us it decays in the soil helps to Liber ate or make available the other four important elements.
