Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - June 9, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Stored Corn shrinkage. A 147 Day Tut 8hows Lou of 1,970 pounds in 500 bushels. To those engaged in the handling of Grain the natural shrinkage of shelled Corn while in storage and in transit la a matter of prime importance and often a source of dispute because of shortage reported at time of receipt st warehouse and a further loss at Date of final Sale. In order to determine the amount of shrinkage or loss of weight occurring in shelled Corn containing various percentages of moisture while in storage in elevators or during transit in cars the department of agriculture in cooperation with the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad company and the Baltimore chamber of Commerce has conducted an Experiment with boo bushels of shelled Corn the test beginning Jan. A 1010, and lasting 147 Days. The Corn used was taken from regular car receipts and was left in the wooden Hopper of a 30,000 Pound scale at elevator b of the Baltimore and Ohio system at Locust Point Baltimore. At the time of storage the moisture Content was 1s.8 per cent and at close of Tho test 14.7 per cent or a loss of 4 1 per cent the weight per Bushel had decreased from 54.7 pounds to 50 pounds and the total loss of weight was 1,970 pounds or slightly More than 7 per cent. Always use Here Gate. Little More trouble to make but it Handy and it lasts. Or. C. A. Thomas in the Homestead gives an idea for an up to Date two piece Gate that should be carefully studied by every enterprising Farmer. It is made wide enough to allow a Hay rack to pass through. The Small Section of the Gate makes the handling Csiszer when a person wishes to pass through besides lessening the Strain that would come on the Gate were it made in one Section. The larger Section of the Gate shuts against a Short Post which is set in cheap but invaluable Gate. The ground and sawed in such a manner As to leave a Back for the Gate to shut against As illustrated. The Short 2 by 4 is held in place by strap Iron clips and holds the Gate rigid. In doing chores when passing through it the 2 by 4 is slipped Back on the larger Gate and the Hook used to keep the gute closed. Rk-m-h-m-4-i-h-m-t he he a Way to get Rich Quick.

It is a great Handicap to children to rear them ignorant of such necessary work around the Home. Let them have cure of the cows and teach them to treat the animals kindly. The mysterious actions of a horse which whirls and bites himself savagely Are due undoubtedly to the presence of Worms in unusual numbers. The rubbing of the tall is another symptom. A Wise coir be of treatment is to give a pint of raw Oil or four drams of aloes in a Ball. After it has ceased to act give a Verm Fuge. The milk House or milk room should be separate from the barn so that no odor from the barn will penetrate it it need not be expensive but should to built so that sunlight and ventilation Are not obstructed. It should be provided with plenty of cold water and also with some method of providing hot water or steam for cleaning the utensils. It should have smooth Walls and ceilings such As can easily be kept clean. The milk House should not to used As a general storeroom. feared burial alive. The dread of premature burial haunted Harriet Martineau who would certainly not be classed As a fanciful person and she bequeathed �10 to her doctor to see that her body was decapitated before burial. Edmund Yates in his will stipulated that his jugular vein should be severed and left �20 to pay for the operation. Lady Burton took even stronger precautions. She enjoined that her heart should be pierced with a Needle before any Steps were taken to certify her death and that her body should afterwards be submitted to a postmortem chronicle. Lucky or not.

I can Tell you seven reasons in seven seconds Why the automobile is an absolute necessity to the Farmer says a contributor from North Texas in Tho farm and ranch. Here they Are All neatly jotted Down for your perusal automobile put me on the Beene at critical times when an hour meant profit or loss. automobile is a great Factor in establishing Good will and co oper Atlen Between my renters and me. has made possible the development on my farm of a social Center from which it has resulted that i have secured my pick of farm renters for my land. It has enabled me to go in for Soi in Tito agriculture Long sighted method and prizes which will mean a still higher reputation for my acreage. and night errands and the delivery of products on schedule time have resulted from the Possession of a machine. family my renters and i now enjoy a the advantage of both City and country life with very few disadvantages of either. automobile has brought about great improvement in our roads which la an asset to our whole Community. enables us to care for our sick and wounded safely and promptly with surgeons and physicians when the emergency demands.

By Courtesy Kansas state agricultural College kicked and bitten by favorite horses had gone through runaways and discussed situations with Balky animals i was quite sure that nothing could break my attachment for a Good driving horse. When it came to the automobile i did not Bave much Faith in my Experiment i had made up my mind that it was liable to break Down at Auy time that All my neighbors would be set against me because their horses would be afraid of the machines that altogether the outcome could scarcely be pleasant. Here s my experience. The automobile never complains nor fails to respond except when abused by reckless driving Over rough places while it delights in going at High Speed where the roads Are Good. Many Farmers suppose that the automobile is for the wealthy Man when it is really the Friend of the poor Man much cheaper than horses and Good vehicles if managed with the same care. 1 believe that it is a valuable investment just As is the plow or Mower. Let me illustrate How Auto owning works. One Day i was in Sherman when a phone message came that something had gone wrong with the cattle and no one knew what to do. It was up to me to be on the ground immediately. With a horse this would have required at least an hour and i probably would have had to hire a Rig in the City and pay $5 for it in Stead of that 1 answered a coming a clapped the receiver up ran out cranked the machine jumped in and Well within half an hour was working with the cattle. That one instance was Worth a great Many dollars and i could cite Twenty like it of Quick trips about the farm. That is one reason Why i say that in three Mouths last Winter my machine earned enough to pay for itself in ways not expected by me when i bought it. The average landlord sets Down his renters in their Little shacks on this and that Hilltop sees them once a month and allows a spirit of misunderstanding envy distrust and ignorant farming to Quot take his farm. Although 1 use the. Greatest care in choosing my renters this would have been my Fate but for my automobile. Groom your Steed.

Holes in everything. It is held by More than one High authority that matter is neither continuous nor homogeneous. Thomson showed by an Experiment that Hydrogen can be passed into a vacuum tube through an incandescent Platinum window. In a similar Way sodium passes through Glass and this is a useful fact in the manufacture of vacuum tubes because sodium can be passed into the tube to absorb the residual oxygen. Bellati the italian physicist has shown that Hydrogen can pass through cold Iron. Matter May therefore be generally regarded As full of holes. Happiest Giri in Lincoln.
