One of the best things for remov

he is shedding is a rubber having an

Newark, Ohio, in the Popular Mechan

Care of the Lambs.
At eight to ten days of age lambs
will begin to eat. At that time a
creep should be built which will give
them access to a feed box containing t
grain and a trough with hay. Ljax, c
trough and feed should always be y
kept sweet and clean.
A good grain ration for lambs is
made as follows: Mix one-third par-t1
of oilmeal with one part each of
bran, oats and fine cornmeal. RodJ

alfalfa hay are the most desirable

It is a good idea to keep up the

are sent to market. By so doing the a~

out on the tower of the Maine and
the twisted steel that once formed
her huU and not feel a sense of Indig
nation and a conviction that what fol
lowed was a just retribution for so
dastardly an act, if the Spaniards ac
tually comnitted the deed.
One feels a hnd of personal inter
est in the vessel that carried the flag
for years, that figured in the national
drama so tragically, that must forever
appear in the annals of our country.
Whether or not the Spaniards were
guilty of the vessel's destruction is ex
pected to be developed when the hulk
The battleship Maine was sunk in
Havana harbor 13 years ago. The
wreck of the Maine could have been
blown up and thus disposed of at a
cost of $20,000. The Cuban govern
ment wo- ted to do that in order to
clear the- harbor. But Uncle Sam
would not have it, and so for years a
mass of twisted Iron, sentineled by a
lone turret, has grinned, skull-like, at
the passing world. Congress, aroused
finally to action by public sentiment,
appropriated $300,000 to be expended
in raising the Maine.
The Maine at the time of the explo
sion was swinging with her nose to
ward the Havana sherc, and the wreck
lies in a line almost west and east,
bow and strn. The buoy to which she
was moored was about three-eighths
of a mile from the west shore of the
bay. The wreck lies in about the cen
ter of the harbor.
On the 15th of February each year
the Americans in Havana have visit
ed the wreck and decorated it with
wreaths and offered prayeri for the
men w ho were swecpt to death on that
dreadful February uight.
There are conflicting reports as' to
the conditionl of the hull. A Spa~niih
board of ivestigationi oflicially i rport
ed to the Spanish government that the
bow is ini one place, whilo a Cuban
board locatedl it In another. A United
States investigation agreed with neit h
er. The wvater' dlepth is from 30 to 37
feet. TIhe vessel is (or was) about 33
feet in height-that is, to the top of
her decks. The deck is now 19 feet
below the surface of the wanter. The
mainmast and the fighting tolp are ex
posed-also a par-t of the house,
turned upside down.
After their long neglect the bodies
of the unfortunate seamen, who wvent
to their death on that February night
13 years ago, will find a resting place
in the Arlington National cemetery
under the stump of the fighting mast
which now thrusts Its top above the
waters of Havana bay. The dleencies
will thus be satisfied. Blut it is not
sentiment alone which is directing the
activities of the government engi
nleer's. If it were only that their prob
1em would b e immensely simpilified.
The cause of the explosion remains
unknown; In the wvrcck itself the en
gineers hope to find evidence which
will explain the mystery. All their
plans, accordingly, were laid with a
view to leaving such evidence as
might exist undisturbed.
Briefly and nohi-tochnically, the plan
being used to raise the vessel is as
follows: A series of cylinders-20 in
number-foring a cofferdami, are be
ing sunk in the wvater, sit and mud
around the wreck. These cylinders,
when completed, will form a-n egg
shaped dam encircling the wreck. This
damn will be made watertight and the
water inside pumped out. Ilydraulic
pumps wvill suck out the mud and tho

The coistruction of this series of
CYlinders is the work vw under way.
Half of the 20 cylinders are down
nOw. They are made of Lackawauna
sheet steel pilings and about 150 piles
are needed for each. Each cylinder
is 50 feet in diameter and each pile
is 75 feet in le'igth.
Steam hammers mounted on barges
are used to drive these piles, and four
of thom are at work at the same time.
Tho bed of the harbor is soft down to
about 60 feet. Below this the piles
must le driven into from 10 to 15 feet
of stiff clay. As the cylinders are
completed each is filled with clay,
scooped up by an immense steam
dredge from a bank near Regia.
The cylinders are connected by an

cylinder by a "three-way" Ile. The
pocket between the arc and the cyllin
ders will also be filled with clay and
thus prevent leakage between the cyl
inders. In other words, there will be
2 )ig, round affairs that look like
gas tanks, filled with clay and locked
together around the suniken wreck. It
will take, it is calculated, about two
days to pump the water out of the
space within the circle of cylindrical
gas tank affairs and more time to
suck the mud out.

The Cuban government is assisting
the United States in this work most
cordially. A wharf of sufileient size,
conveniently located in Casa IBlanca,
jutst beneath the walls of the Cabana
fortress, has been set aside for the
work. To place the cylinders, ordin
ary round pilos are dIriven at the axis
of each. A roundim this central pile is
floated a templet of wood, made in
sections for ease of removal. The
sheet piles are shipped in lengths of
25, 35, 4i0 and 60 feet, and are bored

75 feet. Tlhe piles for a comiplete cyl
