ADJUSTABLE WAGON SEAT.
A Contrivance Tliat Si cured Third Trtxe
in a Farm Convenience Contest.
There are a great ir any farmers who
still c-ling to the old fashioned
bed with detachahle sideboards, which
has many advantages . ver the other kind
on the farm. This necessitates wovting
the mblier with a leve r. which is ready
for use at nil times with bed off or on.
It was this idea whi h brought to the
mind of a eorresj.on.lcnt of the Ohio
Farmer the adjustable waaron seat shown
in the c uts and which almost any farmer
can make. He says coneerniRS this
contrivance for which he received third
prize in a contest of f inn conveniences:
I have often thought when riding over
rongh roads of the mowing machine
seat, which is in n?3 only about two
weeks in the year. My first idea was to
remove the bolt which fastens it to the
machine and Vwlt it to a lwttom board
of the wagon bed, mr. I knew it would
fio. i rmzr: amcstable wagon seat.
make a very low driver's seat, not much
higher than the sideboards, and wonld
be of no use when the bed was filled. I
will hero desci-ilie he seat which has
the advantages i.f being held more firm
ly in position t . .an t ':io ordinary spring
seat, and co-t litt or nothing, ami
when thrown I ,; k i.- as little in the way
as anv other 1.1.
For the f..' .ioatd, take an 8-inch
board of tough while oak or red thn,
saw it 4 in;-i.; s wider than the wairon
bed a 2-inch :rojtetion on each side.
The arms are i , by 3 inches, with the
end gate rod p:i . inc through tlie widest
side at A. so th it the arms are held flat
against the sidebo.-ml. Fasten the foot
board (M) on the otl er end of arms with
three strong bolts (I.), the iron strap (D)
having been placed on both ends of bolts.
-Sow you are ready :'or the machine seat.
Fasten it on to the footboard with one
bolt, having a larg i washer, or square
iron strap, on the under side of board.
Fig. 2 shows the seat in position. D is the
wagon brake; E is tho chain attached
to seat for convenience; F, dotted line,
showing circle the s-eat makes in reversing.
It may be attached to front end of bed
for front lever, if desired, by reversing

the machine seat and fastening on the
other end of footbo ird and passing a rod
through front Iran e of lied.
Heat Size for SeetimiH.
A subject up for discussion at the last
meeting of the North American Dee
keepers' association wtis tho best size for
sections. Previous to the discussion a
paper by Dr. Miller, of Illinois, was road.
In this the doctor -and: '"tor buying at
wholesale a standard size is better.
Ease of productiot; will lead to less cost.
If yon consult th( profit of the manu
facturer, part of tiat will come back to
yon. Two sizes sem liest, 4'.; l.v4in
generally popul ir, but iu width we run
from two inches down. Grocers wish one
pound packages to resell wit-nut weigh

Mr. E. R. Root, of Ohio, quoted sizes
given by manufacturers. One firm
made six to eight t-izes, chiefly 4.' by 4
and 5 by Tt; odd sections cost more.
Another firm mal es largely of 4l2by
4 2 seven to the f t and over one pound.
The standard seen s to lie 4 !4' by 4J4, and
l,7s inches thick, or 1 15-10, and less than
A mciulier from Albany, said: "The
thinnest section sells best early in
the season. The fanner tops his apples
and sells his cuv standing on a knoll;
there is no reaso i why the beekeeper
should not put l is honey in the most
salable shape -th it which shows most
for the money. Make your sections as
thin as you can, as small as you can,
as much less than a jiound as yon can.
An oblong shape is more pleasing and
looks larger than the square."

The Massachus- tts state board of agri
culture reports the abandoned farms of
that state to be W G.
The Vermont r ate loard of agricml
tnre reports the number of abandoned
farms last spring as 4(K5, many of which
hare been taken up since then. But all
the abandoned farms do not lie in the
New England states. In a report issued
by the Virginia board of agriculture it
U stated that there are in that state
alone 15,000,000 ,cres of land suitable
for farming purposes that are not tilled
and which are a ourden to their owners.
According to this same report, much of
this land is for sale at low prices. Vir
ginia is not the only southern state that
affords in abandoned farms possibilities
to the would In farmers with small
capital. Xorth Carolina and other states
as far west as Ai kansas have farms that
are left to lie fal.ow by their owners.
In the five stat es of Alabama, Arkan
sas, Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi
there are nearly 12,000,000 acres of land
belonging to the United States and sub
ject to entry nnder the homestead law.

Milan, Feb. 4. Editor Abgits: It
is unbecoming for anyone to speak dis
paragingly ef his town, or the people of
his town, but at times it seems necessary
that people's attention bhould be called to
existing evila, and, if possible, awaken a
public 91-ntiment that will not tolerate
what even ladies as well as all good citi
zens are compelled to toll rite on our
streets every day. Our street corners and
sidewalks sre in many places completely

ears to the profanity and vulgarity which

dares suggest a suopression of such talk,
he is ereeted with a string of oaths that
would do credit to a cptain of a vessel
in the Snuih seas, and he m6t not slap a
boy. If the parents will permit such
things with indifference, why, in the name
of common dtcency does not our mar
shal and councilmen drag some of these
juvenile offenders before our local magis

fine or lay in jail a while for non-payment?
Such a course would be produc
