Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - October 23, 1918, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Farm arid ? Garden in place of Wood. Easy method for casting Concrete for wire fencing the manufacture of a re enforced Concrete Fence 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 to Tal 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 16 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 150 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 6 inches along one end. On 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 Cut Ting 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. I. The sides Are two inches longer than Bottom Board and Lap Over the Width Mold for posts. Of the ends. They Are held in position when molding posts by a Hook and eyelet to fasten same 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 inc Square and Cut into pieces ave and one half inches for the sides and two and three Quarter inches for the Bot Tom. 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 sol idly. 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 the 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 setting which makes them stronger. 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 be ginning 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 As in medicines la the form of sedative and Carminative pastes and syrups against bronchitis whooping cough Etc.

But what made you irritate her father the Banner farm state Missouri tracts smaller but in num ber they exceed others. Missouri has More farms than any other state Lif the Union. Within her Borders Are 284,551 farms which aver age 120 acres to the farm. The improved Laud to each farm averages 75 acres or g2v� per cent these figures Are based on the last census report. According to the report of the com Merce and labor Bureau the farms of Missouri Are Worth $34.75 an acre. Among the states of the Middle West Missouri has smaller farms than Many of them. Ohio is an exception Soliere 276,000 farms Only average is acres each. Illinois has 21v4.000 tums of 124 acres each. Lowa Lias 225.000 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 \ it. Miniford professor of animal husbandry in the College of agriculture in the University of Missouri has pre pared 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 to mics in Missouri. The As professor Mumford gives it is fifteen cattle four horses one mule then a six hogs five sheep Ned a fraction f a croat. Fully one third of the state. Popula tion depend dint by or indirectly upon animal products for their existence. The income from animals and animal products is $130,000,000 annually. Fifty five per cent of the Farmers have their principal income from live Stock in fact More than $800,000,000 Are invested ill farms live Stock mud equip ment for stoc4 raising. Missouri stands third in the Middle West As the state having the largest number of renters on the farms. Illi Nois farms Are tilled by 01 per cent owners and 39 per cent tenants. The percentage of tenancy in Lowa 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 Sio too 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 Lowa $12.22. Seeds a cent apiece Ginseng seeds Are Worth 1 cent apiece or from so to Sion a Pound. Dried Root is Worth $0.25 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 bail forms. R this grows direct from the main stalk of the Plant and from four to five inches above the foliage. The aver age 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 the 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 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 on the Market than wild.

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 maker s name Soutor and was Wrath at his loss since the name went for much in the judgment of the East. One Day he says i was sitting in my favorite Tea shop with my Friend Hassan All discussing As usual eng land s perfidy in abandoning North per Sia to russian machinations when a most dignified persian entered the Auberge. He was preceded by a Well groomed boy carrying his dust coat. The persian bowed to me with great civility and passed into an inner apart ment. As both Man and boy bore burnished Gilt crests upon their tall Astrakhan hats i took them to be pub Lic functionaries of no Small importance. " who was that Hassan All i asked. I do not remember having seen him before yet evidently he recognized me " that said my Friend with his Small Beady eyes twinkling is your Cook yes " my Cook i answered in astonish ment. I took him to be at least the governor s chief of staff " Well he is your chief of staff which to him seems a higher degree i yes and Hassan All smiled his inimitable smile. " but what in the name of Good con science is the impertinence that he wears upon his hat " that must be your Crest. It is a badge of yours " on my Honor Hassan Ali you must not make fun of me i have Given the Man no Crest and i have never set eyes on him before " i have seen the badge Hassan All continued it is undoubtedly your own. It has the motto Souter which is doubtless thebold heraldic contraction for the word sout Neur and also the subtitle by Royal appointment yes " it was of course the missing Saddle plate which the ingenious Cook had conveyed As a heraldic decoration. Pickpockets. The manner in which the dips do their thieving work. As a usual thing the pickpockets vary their methods to suit Circum stances. 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 fre quent but convictions Are rare be cause 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 har Vest 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 Dis covers his loss within a minute he is too late because the car or train has sped on. A Bismarck Story. Playing the role of Cousin was just to his liking. In his University Days Bismarck Waas Jolly and boisterous As the least promising youth of his generation. According to the author of the m. P. For Russia he enjoyed dancing and singing better than study and was As full of l us As his chosen companion count Keyserling was deficient in it once on this difference in temperament hangs a tale. One Day the shy and reserved key Serling came to Bismarck in great Agi tation. What is the matter demanded Bis Marck. My Mother writes that an aunt and two cousins Are coming for a week to Iberlin wed As they Are very Young and inexperienced i must go about everywhere with them offering them All sorts of amusements. It is most annoying groaned Keyserling As i have to prepare myself for examinations and have no time for pretty coun try Bismarck saw his Chance and immediately inquired have you Ever seen these Young girls have they Ever seen you never in tiny capital nothing could be better. Let Nie be count Keyserling for the time being and you become simple a Smarek. You stay at Home and t shall become a first class Cicerone Dur Ingall the time of their Keyserling eagerly accepted the prop position. When the Young ladles arrived Bismarck met them As Keyser Ling and. Placed himself at their Dis position 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 he was disconcerted by receiving a letter from Home in which his Mother expressed her great Delight in hearing from Tho Young ladies and their Mother How immensely they had enjoyed themselves and How very agreeable and kind their Cousin had been. I am overjoyed continued the fond Parent to hear from their description that you have grown quite Stout and robust during your stay at the camera. Some of the wonderful things of which it is capable. The camera which divides time into thousandths of a second and records the impressions of each makes Perma nent pictures of events which pass too quickly fior the Dull human Retina to recognize. It is Only through Cam Era 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. The Tarpon Fisherman familiar with the first wild leap of the frenzied fish As it casts Hook and bait fifty feet in the air sees first in the finished picture the outstretched Gills the convulsive opening and closing of which had escaped his Eye however closely he May have looked for it. Often the Eye of the camera will de cipher documents of which the writing had been substantially obliterated by age and i have successfully copied with the camera the utterly faded photograph of a classmate of forty years previous and thereby been enabled to present to a grizzled Veteran a like Ness of his curly haired youth. Changes in the pigment of the skin a discoverable by the Eye appear with distinctness on the sensitive plate and it is said that ample warning of approaching disease has been thereby Given. By Means of the inv Siblo rays lying beyond the Violet of the spectrum objects May be photographed in the dark Ness and with the Aid of the so called x rays through substances otherwise opaque. When from the darkness of night and storm the forked lightning flashes the camera makes a vivid and permanent picture of each fiery Trail. Creatures that travel by night can be caught in the Brief Blaze of a magnesium charged pistol the Flash of which is of too Short duration for the creature to move or the Dull human Eye to recognize the subject.?a. W. Dimock in Norden s. 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 valuables.?Bohemian Maga Zine. Business baseball 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 sporting men Drew no very Shai p 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 Conven tion of Amateur clubs held in 1859, Felt called upon to pass a Rule age inst paying players. There was no Money in the game As yet Only glory but cer Tain 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 Brook Lyn began playing on the old Union grounds. This Arena was a fenced Basin used in Winter As a skating rink. In isg2 the owners decided to make it continuously profitable by turning it into a summer baseball Park. Experimentally they charged a regu Lar ten cent fee at the Gate. They found that spectators were Willin Topay 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 business had entered the game.?Collier s weekly. Knew the Prospect. Or. Honeyman looked hopefully at the pleasant Rosy faced norwegian girl with whom the manager of the employment Bureau had accorded him an interview. Can you Wash and Iron he asked. Yaas i do dose responded the cheerful Minna. Japan a land of color. Farms of two or three acres divided into Many tiny Fields. 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 sprout ing Barley Light Green in color another Field perhaps the next with vetch a Lavender coloured Clove like fodder a neighbouring Field with a dark Green grass from the seed of which a lamp Oil. Is manufactured another with the Pale yellow Flowers of the Mustard and scattered Here and there Fields filled with what looked like a variety of Lily so me White some red some yellow but All equally Brilliant. Thinly wife likes to regulate her Ward Robe along those identical lines."? Pittsburg Post. A concise explanation How does that Man always manage to appear As the Leader of you people i suppose answered Farmer corp tossed that it s simply because he s smart enough to get ahead Oil the liar is sooner caught than the rripple.? Spanish proverb. The Teasel a queer Plant with water traps for its insect victims. Among common plants there Are few move remarkable than the Teasel. There is Little doubt says u Well in formed natural history contributor to the London chronicle that the Teasel is As much a flesh eating organism As any spider that Ever spun a web. Moreover its method of securing its victims thou gli quite As ingenious As that of the spider is much More comprehensive As Well As More efficacious. Not Only does 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 nature s 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 Tho Juicy Green Stem. 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 traps 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 and their gradient gets sharper As the water is approached. Thus the Teasel s victims Are made to walk the Plank to their death and once in the water there is no Hope of return. They soon drown and every Teasel Well has at its Bottom a layer of slime formed by their disintegrated bodies. Town lots for Sale at private contract at Melfa station.

I it is of course difficult to prove that this Deposit is absorbed by the Plant. As Nutriment but careful Dis Section 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 on the matter. Driving a Nail. More to it than simply hammering it into the Wood. One who thinks that the driving of a i Nail consists simply in getting thei whole length of it out of sight has Little Conception of the real nature of the operation says the scientific Amer i lean. A Nail driven by an expert Willi 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. Therein a reason for this. Suppose that he is nailing the 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 edgewise so that much Force is required probably he will Start Toenail in the upper Edge pointing vory 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 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 be fore the Point has fairly entered the Wood the difference lies in the fact that the expert strikes the Nail fairly and not too hard 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 inter Fere with the holding qualities of the Nail while it will be found to very materially facilitate its driving. A spiked Mountain. One of the remarkable geological 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 Pali Sades. These columns Are five to twelve feet Long and As Large around As an average Man s 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 protrude from the surface at Rigett angles form ing 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 work Ings is of an entirely different kind from that of the Palisade outcropping Pachuca Mexico Cor. Indianapolis news. The danger in dust.
