Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - October 23, 1918, Big Stone Gap, Virginia ®86i�bsasssis�ssbs5 a ssh a a is. Re a ii a us i. A a be farm on3 Garden in place of Wood. Easy method for casting Concrete for wire fencing. The manufacture of a re enforced Concrete Feuce Post five inches on the face and Bevelled to two and three Quarter inches on the opposite face with a thickness of six inches and total length of eight feet will make an average of eighteen posts to the cubic Yard of Concrete. Thus posts with wire re enforcement would Cost from 12 to 10 cents each for material de solid Concrete posts pending upon the Cost of Portland Cement and Sand and gravel. With the simple apparatus shown in the illustration two men could Mold lot Good posts in a Day of ten hours. At this rate the labor Cost of posts should not be More than 2 cents each. The posts shown in the first illustration Are solid. Now for the building of the machines for the Bottom Board of machine use a two and three Quarter Inch wide strip eight feet Long. To this hinge the two sides in the manner shown in the illustration. The sides Are six and one Quarter inches wide and eight feet two inches Long with one Edge hinged to Bottom Board. For the two ends use a Board 5 by g inches along one end. the five Inch Width make a Mark in from each Corner exactly one and one eighth inches and draw a line from that to the opposite Corner cutting along this line which makes a trapezoid with one end two and three Quarter inches and the other end five inches wide. This is hinged to the Bottom Board with strap hinges As shown by illustration. The sides Are two inches longer than Bottom Board and Lap Over the Width Mold for posts. the ends. They Are held in position when molding posts by a Hook and eyelet to fasten Shine to end boards. Take some inside window stops usually one half Inch thick by three quarters of an Inch wide plane Down the edges so As to make one half such Square and Cut into pieces five and one half inches for the sides and two and three Quarter inches for the Bottom. Tack these to Side and Bottom boards at the Points you wish the wire ties to come. This depends upon the Fence you will erect and for Ordinary use is six inches apart. This completes the machine which is operated As follows mix Portland Cement one part with six parts of clean Sand and gravel after placing your re enforcing wire fill into machine and tamp Down solidly. After you have the machine filled turn it Bottom Side up on to a Board and unhook Hooks at each end. This allows the sides and ends to be folded Back from the Post without danger of injuring the same and thus a Man at each end can lift machine easily. The posts Are left upon tiie boards to dry and should not be touched for four Days or a week. If the weather is dry they should be sprinkled once or twice a Day to retard the a setting a which makes them Strong r. As soon As they have permanently or hardened pile them up As you would any Post. The re enforcing wires Are placed by Boring one eighth Inch holes in each end of machine. For average work three will be enough but if a Strong Post is desired use five. Through these holes string no. 0 wire which is imbedded in the Concrete and thus strengthens the posts preventing any vibration or Strain from breaking them. End posts May be folded with holes at proper place to which you can attach braces with bolts. Fragrance of Hay. The agreeable odor of freshly Cut Hay is imparted to it by certain plants of the family of the Labi ates such As the salad Burnet Woodruff Sweet Trefoil Etc., but in particular by the so called Spring grass or Vernal grass Anthon Antum Odo Ratum. This latter is a very precocious Gram Ina that flourishes As Early As the end of april or the beginning of May. It grows in Low and thick Tufts and thrives chiefly in fresh and shaded ground. Now should you ask us whence this odor of the Spring grass which to Hay imparts its fragrance it is due to the aromatic principle called coumarin by the chemists. This substance is also extracted from the above mentioned plants in which it appears in appreciable quantities and used in the manufacture of perfumes As Well Ashi medicines in the form of sedative and Carminative pastes and syrups against bronchitis whooping cough Etc.

A but what made you irritate her father a a i had to do it i Wasny to any too popular with the girl until her father forbade me the House a a Louisville . A the Banner farm state. Missouri tracts smaller but in number they exceed others. Missouri has More farms Ilian any other state it the Union. Within her Borders Are 284,886 farms which average 120 acres to the farm. The improved Laud to each farm averages 75 acres or 626 per cent these figures Are based on the last census report. According to the report of the Commerce and labor Bureau the farms of Missouri Are Worth $34.75 an acre. Among the states of the Middle West Missouri Lias smaller farms than Many of them. Ohio is an exception sphere 276,000 farms Only average is acres each. Illinois has 264.000 farms of 124 acres each. Iowa has 228,000 farms of 151 acres each. Kansas has 173,000 farms of 22s acres. In the United states farms average 146 acres but Only 50 per cent is improved land. V. B. Munford professor of animal husbandry in the College of agriculture in the University of Missouri has prepared some interesting facts about the amount of live Stock there is on an average Missouri. Farm. This is considered a great mule state and yet there Are four times As Many horses As there Are mules in Missouri. The i Iii Pianer As professor Muliford gives it is fifteen cattle four horses one mule Twenty six hogs five sheep and a tract n f a Goat. Fully one third of the state. Population depend directly or indirectly upon animal products for their existence. The income from animals and animal Pri duets is-$130,060,000 annually. Fifty five per cent of the Farmers have their principal income from live Stock a in fact More than $s00.000,000 Are invested in farms live Stock and equipment for Stock raising. Missouri stands third in the Middle West As the state having the largest number of renters on the farms. Illinois farms Are tilled by 61 per cent owners and 39 per cent tenants. The percentage of tenancy in Iowa is 34.9, while Missouri has Only three tenants in ten Farmers which Means that seven Farmers out of ten in Missouri do not pay rent but have the title of their farms resting in themselves. The percentage of tenancy in Ohio is 27.5, but in Michigan it drops to 15.9. There is said to be a tenant on land of David Rankin in the Northwest part of the state making As much As $10.000 a year on rented land. Tenant farming in Missouri As Well As in All the Best agricultural states is said to be on the increase. Missouri does not get so much return from her lands per acre As do Many of the other states. According to the last census report the Money made on each acre of improved land in Missouri was $9.58 an acre. This is much less than in any of the Best states surrounding Missouri. The return per acre in Ohio was $13.30 Michigan $12.42 Illinois $12.48 Iowa $12.22. A Cooke a Crest. The decoration worn by a pompous persian chef. A quaint Story from Persia is Given in a Book by or. James. The author had missed from his Saddle the brass plate inscribed with the makers name. Sou ter and was Wrath at his loss since the name went for much in the judgment of the East. A one Day a he says a i was sitting in my favorite Tea shop with my Friend Hassan Ali discussing As usual England a perfidy in abandoning North Persia to russian machinations when a most dignified persian entered the Auberge. He was preceded by a Well groomed boy carrying Bis dust coat. The persian bowed to me with great civility mud passed into an inner apartment. As both Man and boy bore burnished Gilt crests upon their tall Astrakhan hats i took them to be Public functionaries of no Small a a who was that Plassan All a i asked. A i do not remember having seen him before yet evidently be recognized a a a that a said my Friend with his Small Beady eyes twinkling a is your Cooke yes a a a my Cook a i answered in astonishment. A i took him to be at least the governors chief of a a a Well lie is your chief of staff which to him seems a higher degree i yes a and Hassau All smiled his inimitable smile. A a a but what in the name of Good conscience is the impertinence that he wears upon his Liat a a a a that must be your Crest. It is a badge of yours a a a a on my Honor Plassan Ali you must not make fun of me i have Given the Man no Crest and i have never set eyes on him before a a a a i have seen the badge a Plassan All continued a it is undoubtedly your own. It has the motto a Souter a which is doubtless the old heraldic contraction for the word sout Neur and also the subtitle a by Royal appointment j a yes a a i it was of course the missing Saddle plate which the ingenious Cook bad it a a conveyed As a heraldic decoration. Pickpockets. Seeds a cent apiece. Ginseng seeds Are Worth 1 cent apiece or from $80 to $100 a Pound. Dried Root is Worth $6.25 a Pound. When first growing from the seed the Ginseng plants have two Forks or stalks and one Leaf on each stalk. The second year it adds another Leaf on each Paft and the third year the Plant grows in three parts with three leaves on each part and this year a seed Ball forms. R this grows direct from the main stalk of the Plant and from four to five inches above the foliage. The average Plant produces from fifty to sixty seeds and sometimes goes As High As 100 seeds. Wild plants yield better than cultivated. The fourth and fifth years one Leaf is added to each stalk. The fifth year tie Plant is full grown having three Forks and. Five leaves on each stalk. It grows from one to two feet in height sometimes As High As Twenty seven inches. The leaves Are Broad and Flat about four inches Long and two inches wide when full grown with a scalloped edges. It takes five years to grow the Root from seed for Market and eighteen months to germinate the seed for growth. There is More cultivated Root now Market than wild. The plants Are found on High dry land in the Woods and never in swampy places. Mow color affects growth. Agri culture is the. Latest. Iii to Fla Marion put seedlings of the sensitive Plant into four different Bouses an Ordinary conservatory a Blue Ordinary greenhouse and a red Bouse. After a few months waiting he found the Little plants in the Blue House practically just As he had put them in. They seemingly had fallen asleep and remained unchanged. In the Green Glass House they had grown More than in the Ordinary Glass House Butchey were weedy and poor. In the red House the seedlings had become positive giants Well nourished and Well developed fifteen As big As the Normal Plant. In the red Light the Plant had become hypersensitive. It was found that the Blue Light retards the processes of decay As Well As those of growth. The manner in which the a a dips do their thieving work. As a usual thing the pickpockets vary their methods to suit circumstances. Only the lower Grade dips work in pairs. These Are the variety who operate on Street cars elevated station platforms and similar places where they will find crowds of pushing people and at the same time have Opportunity to escape if detected. One of the pair shoulders a victim roughly while the other does the work and makes a arrests Are frequent but convictions Are rare because the Man captured Seldom has the loot. Not but that the higher Grade dips work in such places. The difference is that they work in groups and choose times when prosperous passengers will be in the majority. During the fashionable shopping hours and after the Heaters at night Are considered Harvest times. One method is to Block the exit As the intended victims Are about to alight and in the Jumble make the provided the victim discovers his loss within a minute he is too late because the car or train has sped on. Last Winter a Trio of dips worked a Clever method in Chicago. Gabbing themselves in evening clothes they mingled in fashionable crowds in big cafes theater exits and Railroad stations. One of the party was always hopelessly drunk and the others apparently acting the Samaritans were hard put trying to keep him on his feet. With All their care however he would stumble occasionally and fall into groups of ladies and gentlemen. Invariably the sober companions had apologized and taken their charge away before any one discovered the. Loss of Magazine. Business baseball stick to the country. Life in a Metropolis makes Young children Sharp but not Clever. It often destroys their Chance of Ever being Clever for it hastens the development of the brain unnaturally it makes them superficial Alert but not observant excitable but without one spark of enthusiasm. They Are Apt to grow Blase fickle discontented. They see More things than the country bred child but not such interesting things and they do not properly see anything for they have neither the time nor capacity to get at the Root of All the bewildering objects they crowd into their Little lives. A not personal. Count do orsay had an explosive temper. Sir Algernon West says that the count a once called on the publishers. Messes. Saunders amp Otley on lady Blessington a behalf and used very Strong language. A Beautiful gentleman in a White neck cloth said he would rather sacrifice lady by Essing tones patronage than stand such personal abuse. A Jam not personal a said do orsay. A if you Are Saunders then Otley if you Are Otley then a Learned it by ear. The dear Little girl arose bowed and recited it in this manner a lettuce Denby up n. Dewing widow Hartford n. E. Fate still h. E. Ving still per sue Wing learn to Label aunty then with the tumultuous applause of the audience ringing in her ears she sat Down in Happy Tribune. The Advent of Gate receipts in the National game. The professional baseball player As such was unknown before the civil War. One finds indeed signs in the newspapers of the period that our a Esporti Jig men Drew no very Sharp line Between the Amateur and the occasional professional. That perhaps was Only natural. Athletics were a new thing to us. We had yet to learn the dangers and the finer ethics of sport. For example the first convention of Amateur clubs held in 1859, Felt called upon to pass a Rule against paying players. There was no Money in the game As yet Only glory but certain Rich nonpaying members of the fashionable clubs had begun to lure stars from other clubs by offers of Money or the foundation Stone of professional baseball however was Laid when the at antics the Eckford the Mutual and the other crack teams of Brooklyn began playing on the old Union grounds. This Arena was a fenced Basin used in Winter As a skating rink. In 1862 the owners decided to make it continuously profitable by turning it into a summer baseball Park. Experimentally they charged a regular ten cent fee at the Gate. They found that spectators were willing to pay even when they raised the Price to 25 cents. Half of these fees went to the ground owners and half to the clubs. So came the appetite for Gate receipts and a a business had entered the weekly. A Bismarck Story. A playing the role of Cousin was just to his liking. In his University Days Bismarck Waw As Jolly and boisterous As the least promising youth of his generation. According to the author of Quot the m. P. For Russia a he enjoyed dancing and singing better than study and was As full of fun As his chosen companion count Keyserling was deficient in it Amton this difference in temperament hangs a tale. One Day the shy and reserved Keyserling Camo to Bismarck in great agitation. A what is the matter a demanded Bismarck. A my Mother writes that an aunt and two cousins Are coming for a week to Berlin and As they Are very Young and inexperienced. I must go about everywhere with them offering them All sorts of amusements. It is most annoying a Groin used Keyserling. A was i have to prepare myself for examinations and have no time for pretty country Bismarck saw his Chance and immediately inquired a have you Ever seen these Young girls have they Ever seen you a a never in my a capital nothing could be better. Let me be count Keyserling for the time being and you become simple by Minarek. You stay at Home and t shall become n first class Cicerone during All the time of their Keyserling eagerly accepted the proposition. When the Young ladies arrived Bismarck met them As Keyserling and placed himself at their disposition during their stay in Berlin. Keyserling buried himself in his books and thought no More about it until the girls had gone Home to the Baltic provinces. A week or two later lie was disconcerted by receiving a letter from Home in which ids Mother expressed her great Delight in hearing from the Young ladles and their Mother How immensely they. Had. Enjoyed themselves and How very agreeable and kind their Cousin had been. A i am overjoyed a continued the fond Parent a to hear from their description that you have grown quite Stout and robust during your stay at the Teasel a queer Plant with water traps for its insect victims. Among common plants there Are few More Rema Kublo than the Teasel. There is Little doubt says a Well informed natural history contributor to the London chronicle that the Teasel is As much a flesh eating organism As any spider that even spun a web. Moreover its method of securing its victims Tho it igl quite As ingenious As that of the spider is much More comprehensive us Well us Mure efficacious. Not this Plant capture All species of flies and gnats great or Small but caterpillars slugs Wood lice and the like Are All frequent victims. How this is brought about forms one of the most wonderful incidents in natures fascinating Story of the year. The spider weaves her net of the finest silk the Teasel makes her snare out of dewdrops. The Plant grows up straight As a Church spire throwing out its leaves in pairs at intervals up the Juicy Green Stein. The twin Leaver unite at their base to form a deep cup and the leaves Are so contrived that the moisture precipitated on them runs Down into this Reservoir. A Well developed Plant will thus catch and hold in four or five of these water trips a full half pint of liquid and the heat of the Sun appears to evaporate so Little of it that the cups will be brimming even at the close of a hot june Day. The smooth Steep leaves All Lead Down into these pits 1 and their gradient gets sharper As the water is approached. Thus the Teasel a victims Are made i to a walk the Plank to their death and once in the water there is no Hope of return. They soon drown and every Teasel Well 1ms at its Bottom a layer of slime formed by their disintegrated bodies. I it is of course difficult to prove that this Deposit is absorbed by the Plant. As Nutriment but careful dissection will show at the base of each cup a ring of apertures sink holes in fact which Lead into the substance of i the Stem and the presence of which affords Little room for doubt of the matter.

Tie camera which divides time into thousandths of a second and records the impressions of each makes permanent pictures of events which pass too quickly for the Dull human Retina to recognize. It is Only through the camera that the motions of the wings of flying Birds and of the legs of Swift running animals have been Analysed. To the camera the fuzzy Drivers of the swiftly speeding locomotives stand out Clear Cut and stationary while each flying drop of rain in the driven storm is distinct and seems Frozen in. Its place.

W. Dimock in Nordens. More to it than simply hammering it into the Wood. One who thinks that the driving of a i Nail consists simply in getting the i whole length of it out of sight has a Little Conception of the real nature of i the operation says the scientific Arner lean. A Nail driven by an expert will often hold several times As much As one ill driven while too it is often made to draw the parts into place. If you have Ever watched a Mechanic driving nails you have doubtless noted that he rarely drives one at right angles with the face of the work. There is a reason for this. Suppose that he is nailing the a a sheeting on the Frame of a building and desires to draw the Board Down tightly against the one below it. He Points the Nail downward and a few Well considered blows at the last produce the desired effect. If the Board is Bent Quot Edge Wise so that much Force is required probably he will Start the Nail in the upper Edge pointing very sharply downward. Again two nails driven in a Board at different angles will hold it in place much More firmly than the same nails would Quot if they were driven at right angles with the face of the Board. Did you Ever notice that in driving a Nail in very hard Wood one Man will do it successfully while another succeeds Only in doubling the Nail up before the Point has fairly entered the Wood the difference lies in the fact that the expert strikes the Nail fairly and not too hard a a coaxing it in while the other strikes too hard and with indirection. It May be properly mentioned right Here that in driving a Nail into very hard Wood it is usually profitable to dip the end in Oil or grease. This will not sensibly interfere with the holding qualities of the Nail while it will be found to very materially facilitate its driving. Not to him. Hewitt a Money talks.

Land is so scarce in Japan and the people so numerous that a farm rarely consists of More than an acre or two. These Little farms Are divided up into tiny Fields. During the season of the year in which we made our journey one of these Fields was filled with Sproul ing Barley Light Green in color another Field perhaps the next with vetch a Lavender coloured Clov Urlike fodder a neighbouring Field with a dark Green grass from the seed of which a lamp Oil.

I have travelled in but one other country that is so gayly coloured and that was some few years ago when. In the company of a number of other youngsters and an evil smelling magic lantern i used to make frequent visits to the land of primary George Macadam in Outing magazines a spiked Mountain. One of the remarkable Geol Ogeal freaks of Mexico. One of the most remarkable geological freaks in Mexico is a Mountain situated on the outskirts of Pachuca which presents the appearance at a distance of being covered with spikes. The sides of the Mountain Are closely studded with Stone columns or Palisades. These columns Are five to twelve feet Long and As Large around As an average Many a body. It is a remarkable uplift of nature which has the appearance however of being the Handiwork of human beings. One Side of the Mountain is almost perpendicular and the Stone i amps protrude from the surface at Rig tit angles forming an impressive picture. Pachuca is one of the most noted mining districts in Mexico and it is said by geologists that this remarkable spiked Mountain is out of keeping with the remainder of the formation of the Mineral Zed Region. The Stone is As hard As Flint and has withstood the elements for Ages. The spikes form a natural battlement that makes the Mountain appear from a distance like some ancient fort. The mines of the Pachuca District Are situated not far from this wonderful Freak of nature but the formation encountered in their respective underground Workings is of an entirely different kind from that of the Palisade outcropping a Pachuca Mexico Cor.
