AUTOMOBILES FOR POWER.
Pleasure Ca-j IS'ay B3 Utilized For

tbc farm as a means of ploasui* for tin
farmer ami bis family. There Is d ?tlt
lug more natural tlian a desire t>> util
ize tin; splendid power plant contained
in a car for other purposes than pro
polling It over the roads. An Ingenious
farmer has solved the problem in a
manner apparently satisfactory to him
self. The farmer devised an arrange
tnent whereby the net of putting the
ear in its shed places it in position and
so associates the wheels with (he ma
chinery of the dairy that the engine
when started will do the heavy work
of running the separator.
The accompanying sketch shows this
device so plainly that it is not neces
sary to describe it other than to call
attention to the two rollers, one of
which has its shaft extended outside
I ho bor. to carry a pulley, from which
the belt runs to an overhead shaft. It
is easily apparent that the revolution
of the wheels of the car will cause a
reverse motion of the rolls, which is
transmitted by means of tbo pulley and
belt to the shaft and thence to the ma
chinery. In this way the wear on the
TUIC MOTOll AS A l'OWEIt 1I.ANT.
tires is rendered uniform. The grip on
the rolls that these tires exercise is
A peculiarity of this arrangement is
that the car shows a tendency to skill
from side to side. This, however, is
easily overcome by means of props or
bumpers, which are put iu place so us
to limit the sidewise motion of the ear
within the shed, the mere pressure of
the hand serving to move the ear easi
ly when the wheels are revolving on
In very warm weather or on long,
heavy pulls it is sometimes necessary
to connect the circulating system with
the water supply in order to prevent
beating of the cylinders.
For sawing wood, cutting feed or
any work of an intermittent nature It
is necessary for some one to control
the engine on account of there being
no governor. As a matter of fact,
otic farmer tins a small boy at the '
throttle most of the time, ns the sep
arator Is sometimes thrown off with
All Around the Farm.
It Is claimed by those who have
trained many horses that, taking the
colt When training first begins, they
Cttll lie trained to walk over four miles
an hour. The walking gait is the m >st
important one to the farm and road
horse. The mistake with many in
training young horses is that they are
too soon put to trotting, which is a
gait they more readily learn than last
If the land is to be plowed twice be
fore planting in order to make it thor

pack the surface somewhat ami make
the earth turn hotter without clogging

ful in breaking clods and in packing
the surface to prevent excessive evapo

In order to get liens in prime con
