POPULAR SUBJECTS TREATED IN A
wee pa nd Horwpeie An Improvxd Swssp
and Heel Scraps That Have Hone ftund
Work In Oeorgla Described and Plainly
The firnt fijoire in the t ut here given
affords a fair idea of the shape of an im
proved Hweep in use in Georgia and re
cently described in Southern Cultivator.
A SWEEP AND HEKI. SCRAPE.
The figure represenis the blank as cut
from a bar of thin sweep steel (three
eiKhtlis inches thick) and punched fur the
hel bolt. The view is looking down
ward from aliove the sweep as it is
fastened tothe foot of a common wooden
or iron foot plow stock. The dotted line
shows the shape aftor the cutting edgs,
W A. having been drawn out thin and
sharp and A elongated into a point, P.
The angle, W A P, should be a little
greater than a right angle, and the sweep
sliould be so set that the edges, all the
way from W to P. should touch when
laid on a level surface. When run into
a long point, the shank is usually made
separate from the wings. W W, and the
wings are wc! led to the shank, as shown
by the dotted lines. Sweeps are now
ruadc in one solid piece, without welds.
The heel scrape shown at Kig. 2 in the
same cut is a simple and cheap modifi
cation of the winged sweep, and is made
of scraa? steel, varying from two to two
and one-half inches wide and three
eighths to one-half inch thick. Pieces
are cut off the proper length, punched
with a round hole as represented, the
forward edges sharpened, and then the
w hole set by crimping on each side of
the hole, so as to give the scrape the
proier sloie Sack ward, and the upper
or rear edge ilnwtuva:!
The scrape is attached underneath the
foot at the plow stock, a scooter or shovel
being above in the us,ual place, and is
held by the heel boll and nut. The scrape
performs the same, work as a sweep and
is more easily kept in proper shape. Like
the sweep, the cutting edge should rest
in a horizontal plane when the plow is in
running position, the jaiint of the scooter
or shovel being dropped a little lower
than the edge of the scrape.
In both sweep and sera) the outer
rear corner, marked W W in Fig. 1. may
lie turned up or left flat, as may be de
sired or demanded by the work to be
done. These implements are for surface
cultivation only, are inexjwnsive. and
can be kept in order by any good black
smith; but they are not so effective as a
K i porta of Dairy Prndncta.
The statistician of the New York Mer
cantile Exchange, in his tabulation of
the receipts and exports of butter, cheese
and eggs, and of the average price of
the same during the v ear ending Dec.
81. 18S. says:
The receipts of liutter were 2.044.488
packages,, as against 1 .(WT.Wii packages
during 1SK8. The eximrts last vear were
:r."-2 packages a against 140, 99? pack
ages in 1SSH The re. - ipts of cheese were
LSBI.OIS boxes, as airamsi 1,583,462
aattai during Isms. The nuantitv of
cheese exported last year was 1 ."SNl.tClfl
boxes, as against l.",16.(i20 Isixes during
the preceding year. Last year IWti. 241
bail el. and l ,2.v,."s." eases of ejrgs wen
received, as against 380.:t)l barrels and
95b. 781 cases in 1SSS. The average prices
of standard grades of western creamery
butter, tinest cheese and western eggs
show a decline from 18H8 In 1SS9 the
average price of butter was 21 to 2:?1
cents per pound, against 2U to 2(1$ cents
per pound in 18S8. The price of cheese
was 10 to 10 l-.S cents per pound, as
against lOf to 10 cents in 1888. Eggs
averaged 174 to 17 2-3 cents per dozen in
1889, as against 194 to 20 cents in 1888.
Livingston' Gold Coin Corn.
According to Vick, the new variety of
sweet corn. Livingston's (fold Coin, has
disappointed eastern growers by its late
ripening. In this region and eastward
it has been about two weeks later than
the strain of evergreen corn now em
ployed. No complaint bus been received
alaout it from the west and south, but,
on the other hand, reports from these
sections have been sent ub highly com
mendatory of its excellence and produc
tiveness. on en Victoria's Shorthorn Ox.
The animal shown in the accompany
ing illustration occupies a prominent
;Iace in the list of English prize win
ners of the year 1889, being none other
than Queen Victoria's shorthorn os and
champion of the late Birmingham fat
A NOTABLE PRIZE WINNER.
As our likenees indicates, this ox is a
handsome, good looking beast, very
broad over the back and full of thick,
rich flesh. At 1,311 days old he has a
weight of 2.409 pounds, thus showing a
dailv gain of 1 pound 131 ounces.
The spring Medicine.
The popularity which Hood's Barapa
rills has gained aa a spring medicine is
wonderful. It pass esses just those ele
ments of health -giving, blood rm living
and appetite-restoring which .erybody
seems to need at this season. Do not
continue in a dull, tbed, unsatisfactory
condition when too may be so much ben-
fitted by Hood's barsaparilla. It purifies
the blood and makes the weak strong.
