SERVICEABLE HOUSE FOR

A bouae for Ice storage must have
proper drainage, to keep the Ice out
'of the water; the foundation and
walls must be so constructed that air
jcannot get to the Ice from below, and
jyou must have a free circulation of
sir over the top of the Ice at all times,
writes J. E. Brldgenian, In the Na
tional Stockman and Farmer. The
roof must of course be tight to keep

will give better results If built with

Lised Idea that there was a lot of stud
f one Sort or another somewhere
bout the farm, would reply that from
125 to $50 would cover the cost.
A recent Investigation conducted by
the Ohio experiment station In co-operation
with the U. 8. department of
agriculture discloses that this Is far
short of the mark. In order to arrive
t some conclusion In regard to this
matter, careful Inventories were ta
ken on thirty-three Ohio farms, and In
every instanco the total amount was
many times what the owner bad
The fact that those small tools are
bought, one at time as noeded, and
re not cared for systematically, leads
to a very erroneous Idoa of their value,
summarizing the Inventories of these
thirty-three farms. It Is estimated that
to complotely equip a general farm of
160 acres In Ohio with small tools will
probably cost from $200 to $300, or In
excess of the farmers' "guess" by
more than 500 per cent. An error In
Judgment of this amount, particularly
when the error Is against the farm, la
serious enough to challenge our atten
tion. Even on farms where Inventories
re habitually taken, these tools of
minor equipment are usually Included
s "other small tools" and given
guessed at value, somewhat after the
stereotyped expression appearing on
ale bills: "other articles too numer
ous to mention."
Farm requirements differ very great
ly, the highly specialized farm not
needing nearly so many tools as the
general farm. The necessity of fair
ly complete outfit Is apparent If the
farmer would avoid expensive trips to
town or to the neighbors to meet sou-e

The Inventories of the thirty-three
farms Investigated are summarized
and discussed In Circular 98 of the

to make It easy for any farmer to

Kno wlwdare and Experience Gained,
of Far Greater Importance
Than Any Prize Offered
The corn contests which have been
carried on In the many states have
proven of great educational value to
the boys. The prizes offered have
added test to the endeavor to make
the best showing and produce the best
corn, but the knowledge and experi
ence gained are of far greater import
ance than any prize. Lost year there
was issued In Arkansas a circular on
the effect of the corn contests upon
the boy participating. It says:
"The boy who bas engaged in a
contest of this kind, whether success
fully or not, has gained practical
training of far-reaching value and'
lasting significance. He bas been'
brought In touch with the great nat-'
ural laws on one band and with mod-'
era science on the other. He hu hv
his own efforts demonstrated the rels-l
tlon between the two. He bas been'
led to work and think, to apply know!-1
edge to the most practical affairs'
of life. By bis own efforts be has'
made crop and dignified himself h 1
accomplishment He has established!
In bis own mind for all time the rela
tion of theory and practice."
