The lirst thing in making water
proof concrete is to be sure that
the sand and gravel are reasonably
free from clay, silt or any animal
matter, says J. C. Woody, professor
of agricultural engineering at the
Missouri College of Agriculture. In
order to determine whether there is
too much silt or clay in the sand
or gravel try the following test: '
Take a straight-sided glass vessel
(an ordinary fruit jar will doj,
place in the jar 4 inches of the
gravel to be tested, fill about two
thirds full of water and shake 20
seconds; allow it to stand one min
ute and shake again, repeating this
four or five times. Then set the
jar aside for 15 minutes. If there
is more than an 1-8 of an inch of
clay and silt on top of the sand it
is too dirty to be used in water
The next thing to 'consider is the
proportion of sand, gravel and ce
ment. To find the proportions of
sand and gravel, take a representa
tive sample and screen it through a
1-4 Inch mesh or screen. The part
that passes through will be con
sidered sand and the part that Is
retained gravel. A mixture of one
part cement to two parts sand to
four parts gravel is the correct mix
ture for waterproof concrete.
In placing the concrete it should
be made just wet enough so that
after it is thoroughly spaded and
tamped the water will come to the
top. The practice of slushing tho
concrete into the forms is not so
good for a waterproof job as where
tho correct amount of ' water is
used. Make it dry enough so that
it can be thoroughly tamped. The
forms should he removed about ihe
second day, in summer weather, and
tho inside washed with a mixture
of one part coment and two parts
sand made into a thin paste.
If it is deslrublo to glaze the in
terior then the following mixture
could bo used: One can commercial
lye, one-half pound alum, mixed
with enough cement and water to
mako 10 quarts of material the con
sistency of a thick cream.
It Is much bettor to depend upon
clean materials, proper proportions,
and proper placing to secure a water-proof
job than to uso washes or
glazing materials afterwards. It
is alto a good practice to use 10
pounds of bydrated lime with each
sack of cement.

Spring is near at hand. Tho
harbingers of warmer days have al
iculy arrived. It may not, there
fore, be inopportune to say just a
word in behalf of the songsters we
all so much like to have, in our
yards, and against the little pests
who keep them away.
War should be declared on the
English sparrow. A bounty should
be placed on his head. He should
be eradicated. Those who know
him best tell us he is a nuisance in
every sense of the word. He keeps
away the very birds that are of
value, who eat worms and Insects
injurous to vegetation. Sphrtrows
arc pestiferous parasites which,
like the bedbug and cootie, we can
live without. They are noisy,
dirty and good for uothing. Why
tolerate them? Why not do away
with them and give the birds which
spread cheer a chance? Bird
LIFE PORTRAITS OF TWO
APOSTLES ARE FOUND,
Rome. What are believed to be
contemporary portraits of St. Peter
and St. Paul have been discovered
In a hypogeum or underground
structure of the Roman epoch. The
belief in their authenticity is shared
by the well known archaeologist,
The hypogeum was found in ex
cavations for the building of a large
garage. It comprises a number of
rooms and galleries, a crypt and a
Christian church with marvelous
frescoes of a very early date. The
professor believes the portraits were
painted from life.

Use Herald want ads If you
want quick results.
Frequently advertisemonts are
put in papers and even in some of i
our local papers, concerning reme-1
dies and cure-alls for various live
stock and poultry diseases. The j
farmers have been using too much
of this stuff that does uot give
them the results that they want.
Some of these patented remedies are
good and, in fact, most of them have
some merits, but there is nothing in
this line that will cure everything
under the sun, and very few of them
are worth the money they cost.
The county agent can be helpful to
the farmers by suggesting remedies
and tonics that can be bought and
used by the farmers with prac
tically the same results as some of
these high priced remedies.
This little item is just to correct
a few of the conceptions that are
being given through advertisements!
that lead farmers to believe these
patented remedies are cure-alls,
and the fanner who purchases very '
much of it is wasting some of his
