FENCING FARM PROPERLY.
First Cost May Be Large, but In Long
Run It Mesne Considerable
A great deal of unnecessary fencing
is bolng put on ninny of our farms. If
a more careful planning and mapping
out of the fields was done there would
be a great deal of expense cut off.
The end posts nre the life of the
fence and should bo put In good and
deep, well tamped and braced.
Care In tho selection of the posts,
especially the corner and end posts. Is
very essential. The end or braced
posts should be large and perfectly
I possible the posts should bo sea
soned, as a green pleco of wood, when
It comes In contact with tho damp
earth, forms a breeding place for bac
teria and fungi.
There are several preservative
methods In use, any of which will aid
If properly applied.
Charring or plunging In burning
coal tar Is very satisfactory.
Substitutes, such as Iron and re
enforced concrete, are being used by
some, but their cost is so great that
their use as end posts only is to be
Rough and heavy braces are un
sightly and should bo avoided In the
front fences and where cleanliness
and neat appearance are desired.
All fence posts should be set per
fectly perpendicular and the braces
fitted in closely and tightly.
Pieces of timber put in the ground
between the posts prevent their lean
ing toward each other and also pre
vent a hole being worn under the gate
through which the shotes may go Into
the corn field.
Ehort braces or blocks set on this
piece of timber and leaning against
the posts will keep tho wheels from
running too near the posts.
A flat stone should form the foot
of tho underground brace. The earth
should be well tramped around the
braces and the pests.
To prevent a gato from sagging use
a long hinge post and brace back to
the first fence post as shown In the
cut The binges of this gate are
home-made on the book and eye pat
tern, but the post hinges are long
enough to go through the post and
clinch so they can't pull out Tho eye
binges have nuts and washers so they
won't come loose. J. W, Griffin.

The garden should be near the
