HANDY FUMIGATING BIN
Simple Form of House ls Easy
Great Care Must Be Used in Arrang
ing Doors and Windows-Con
crete Is Favored for Erecting
A simple form of fumigating house
may be made of 2 by 4 spruce, over
which any cheap boarding may be
used, provided it is free from knots
and tongued and grooved so that the
boards may be tightly fitted together.
Shiplap is not desirable. The build
ing is rendered air-f'.ght by tarred
paper and laths, or better still, by a
lining of rubber roofing. Great care
ls necessary in constructing the door
and windows. These should be at
loast three layers of board thick and
should be possible to open the win
dow as well as the door from the out
side so that the building may be quick
ly aired after being used for fumigat
A more permanent structure and
one adapted to a wider range of uses
may be made of concrete. It is best
to equip such a cellar with ventilators
so that lt may be used for the storage
of fruits and vegetables. These ven
tilators should, of course, be so ar
ranged that they may be tightly closed
when it is desired to use the cellar
for fumigating. The most popular size
of the average farm is a cellar 10 by
14 feet, inside measurements, with a
self-supporting arched roof 5 feet

above the floor at the sides and 7
feet 8 inches in the center. All of
the side walls are 8 inches thick,
therefore dig tfee hole ll feet 4 inches
by 15 feet 4 inches and to the depth
desired, usually 5 feet, at one end
cut out the earth to a width of 4 feet
4 inches and slope it -?inward for 7
concrete steps with a rise of 8 inches
and a tread of 10 Inches, and for a
thickness of 4 inches of concrete back
of the steps proper, arrange for an 18
inch landing at the bottom of the
stair. Make the side wall forms of
1-inch siding on 2 by 4 uprights,
spaced 2 feet. As the concrete floor
-will be 4 inches thick, set up the
forms on 4-lnch concrete bricks. Above
ground level use outside forms similar
to the inside. At the entrance end to
provide for a doorway, set between
the forms a frame of 2-lnch by 8
inch stuff, 8 by 7 feet In the clear.
Mix the concrete one part Portland
cement to four parts bank-run gravel,
or one part cement to two parts sand,
to four parts crushed rock. A sack
of cement equals one cubic foot.
Ventilation should be provided.
While building the wall make one or
more air shafts (similar to a chimney
flue) of 3-inch tile, by imbedding them
in the concrete wall, with an open
ing inside at floor level and another
outside, well above groucul line. By
this arrangement fresh air is admit
ted. Place a tile chimney in the con
crete roof and cover it with a gal
vanized iron hood for removing the
SUGAR BEETS AND MANGELS
Tend to Increase Milk When Fed to
Dairy Cows-Corn Silage lt Far
: Sugar beets and mangels tend to in
crease milk production when fed to
dairy cows, but experiments conduct
ed at the Ohio experiment station
show that corn silage is far more
economical. Because of this fact these
dairy experts do not advise the feed
ing of beets except for high records
where cost is a minor consideration,
or where the number of cows is too
small to permit the use of a silo.
Cows fed beeta had keen appetites
and ate more feed because of the
stimulating effects of this root crop.
After ten years' work the Ohio station
has found that two pounds of dry mat
ter can be produced in the form of
silage at less cost than one pound in
the form of beets. Convenience in
feeding is in favor of silage.

Corn Fodder and Timothy Hay Not

Corn fodder and timothy hay do not

must be supplemented with a grain
mixture rich in protein.

To do the right thing a little late,

the wrong thing. A letter of sympa

very little to the recipient. An offer
of helpfulness coming when your
friend has struggled through the worst

gratitude. Sometimes a delay of five

postponed for years. Learn to do the
