A HANDY GATE
.r -==-- kR A !vra~
The c1omnination of a double andi
a single gate erected side by side is
very useful to farmers. The con
struction shown herewith calls for
no center post but merely a block
sunk into the ground1, to which the
two gates may be hooked.
The larger gate is ten feet wide
and serves for the ordlinary wheel
ed vehicles. The smaller gate, four
feet wide, dloes for bridle or foot
traffic. At times, however, it is
necessary to have a wider opening
than the larger gateo will give, so
that particular farm implements
may be carried through.. In such
eases both gates are thrown open,
thus providing a space of fourteen
A good and convenient catch is
also shown in the drawing. It will
be seen that the catch comes well
down on the gates, keeping them
firmly in position when shut. A
small piece of iron should be placed
on the top bar of each gate to
receive the catch, thus keeping the
catch from cutting into the wood
when thrown over.-W. 1E. Bowers,
