BUILDING AN ICE-HOUSE.
My house is nn a clay bank. I
excavated about 18 inches, used
some old railroad ties for sills filled
up the inside with gravel and
ran a porous drain-tile around
the outside and down the bank.
The soil is well packed around
the outside. The superstructure
is on a frame of 2xo studs, 14-foot
posts. It is sided with 12
inch barn boards, laid like clapboards
and lapped an inch. The
roof is the ordinary tar felt. An
ice-house must also be well ventilated
at the top, so that the packing
will keep dry I floored mine
loosely, ten feet from the bottom,
and keep a layer of straw in the
upper part. Ther is a slatted
ventilator in the roof 2x4 feet.
The house is 1Sx18 feet square
and cost just about $200, with
hemlock at $24 psr thousand.
We put in several layers of 10-inch
ice last winter, making about
70 tons, at a cost of $18. We
have used it lavishly all summer
and will have about half left.
The house stands where the sun
strikes it all day long, without

Workman Dodged Death
Eight Hundred Times.
Lexington, Ky., Dec. 25.
Clinging to a revolving rake in
one of the large filters at the
reservoir, R, N. Hellerd, for 23
years an employe of the Lexington
Waterworks company, was
whirled through icy water and
flying sand for twenty minutes
today, and in those twenty minutes
he dodged death about 800
times, for each time the wheel
to which he was clinging turned
under a big beam he had to
Hellerd was adjusting a belt
on the machinery over the filter
when he was knocked into the
tank and grasped the rake as the
only means of possible safety.
Fireman Stanhope, upon coming
to his work, heard the cries
of Hellerd, stopped the machinery,
and with the aid of others
rescued the man. Hellerd's
clothing was torn into shreds,
and his face and body were cut

By all means use sawdust. I
was obliged to use part plaining
mill shaving last winter, but
they are too porous and not nearly
so good. The ice should be
cut in cakes longer one way than
the other, so that, in placing one
layer on the other, joints may be
broken; 22x28 inches is a good
size. It should be kept a foot
away from the wall all the way
around and G inches of sawdust
should be placed on the bottom.
The cakes should be laid to sit as
closely as possible and all cracks
and corners should be carefully
chinked with fine particles of ice
stamped in with the point of a
bar or some convenient tool. The
next layer should be placed in the
.same manner, taking care to
break joints. When the house
is packed the least melting will
cause the whole mass to freeze
in one solid block. As each layer
is put in the house, sawdust
should be packed around the sides
as firmly as it can be stamped
down. About two feet of sawdust
should go on top as it will
gradually settle somewhat and
will need occasional packing
around the sides. Remember to
get ice as clear as possible, and
that a crop harvested in zero
weather will keep much better
than when gathered at near the
freezing point: 1.0 to 12 inches in
thickness is the most convenient
to handle, and there will be least

WHAT THE YOUNG

Rapid Strides Made by Kentucky
Corn Club Workers,
BETTER THAN THEIR FATHERS?
Increased YMds at Shown In the Exhibition

During the months of November nod
December the county papera all over
the Btata were full of glowing accounts
of tbo Boys' Corn shows. Probably
nothing that the boys bare done In
years has created such a widespread
interest as thes same clubs. Tbe large
cities of th state had not been affected
by this enthusiasm until the Kentucky
I'.oys' Corn club held its inhibit
at tbe armory In Louisville In connection
with tbe Chllds' Welfare exhibit.
Not. 21 to 30.
One hundred boys from the various
counties that had corn clubs this Benson
sent ten ears each for the city
to see what was being douo. Not
only the public, but tho great dally
newspapers grew very much Interested.
A number of editorials appeared
during the ten days of tlie exhibit, and
almost dally a picture of some successful
corn grower appeared. This display
contained five varletlos of corn.
As tho visitors to the exhibit ashed
questions or rend carefully the labels
that were pluued beneath each display
of corn they began to exclaim: "There
must le some mistake in this. We
never raised that much corn on the
farm when I was n boy," or, "Why.
thoso yields uro twice or three times
the amount of n first class crop of corn
In that neck of tho woods!" Bnnkers
and grain men looked at the statement
of yields, scratched their heads and began
to 11 is' uro on what such crops
would do for the finances of the state.
Mothers nud educators smiled and
wondered how much mischief had failed
to materialize because the boys were
out in the sunshine cultivating nud
thinking of the crops they were growing.
It did seem a great pity that more
of the boys who had entered their corn

in tho exhibit could nut have seen tbe
admiring crowds that stopped, talked
and exclulnied over tbe splendid work
they hud done. It is a work that is
destined to revolutionise our boys and
perhaps at the suine time revolutionize
their fathers and elder brothers.
One fond father whoso son had a yield
of 103 bushels to tho acre remarked:
"I've got two little chaps In tho Corn

small, but they're all right One is

boy was in the club last year and raised
eighty-five boabels. This year he's
got 103, and we are plannln' to get IK)
bushels next year. Yes; we're goln'
to use a lot of fertilisers an' do things
right, because I Just want to see how
much they can raise on one acre. 1
want to see It worse than the boys
The man paused for a moment before
ho continued: "You know, they
call it tho Boys' Corn club. Why. I've
learned more about corn in the past
two years than both of my boys put
together. I tell you what I'm goln' to
do. I am goln' to plant Just half as
much land as usual in corn next
spring, an' I'm goin' to try to raise.
Just the sanio number of bushels.
Then I'll have tho rest of the land for
During the exhibit n number of reports
came in concerning the great
size of some of the crops this season.
It is very probablo that a great number
will exceed tho 100 bushel mark,
which was not reached last season.
