stirring the Ingredients with a box-

more easily done by holding the bowl ! 'I' ' '

arc necessary. A Canadian has devised .
vised the very useful apparatus shown
In the Illustration. It Is designed for
the purpose of hoisting and putting
through windows In the upper stories
of buildings large , heavy and bulky
articles The apparatus is so con
structed that It can be set to communicate .
munlcate with the first , second and
third storIes of buildings and when
the work Is done it can be quickly
.taken down and compactly put together -
gether for transportation One of the
chief advantages Is that large articles
can be put through the windows , as
the parts take up little Slmce. Pianos
could he hoisted with little or no
strain to the instrument , with no dan-
gel' or scratches. It would also do
away with the trouble of getting up
narrow stairways and passing around
sharp corners. The article to be
hoisted is placed on the carrier , which
Is raised by the usual rope run over
pulleys and attached to a roller turn-
ed by a crank. Riggers could use this
apparatus to advantage , as could
also piano movers or movers of safes.

Building a Bedroom.
l\I. N.-I wish to build n bedroom
about fourteen feet by ton , to the' end
of u sitting room. It will be warmly
built of frame , and well , but not expensively -
pensively finished. It will contain one
window and there will bo no upstairs
over it. 1 would ho very much pleased
to obtain from you an estimate ot
what It would cost to build it In this
It is difficult to give an estimate of
the cost of the addition to the house ,
as sufficient details are not given regarding -
garding the construction-whether the
roof is a gable or just a lean-to. Esti-
mating on 11 building ten by fourteen ,
eight feet high , with a lean.to root ,
with walls sheeted on outside with
inch lumber , then paper , and weather-
boarded , the addition should cost
about fifty-seven dollars , Including ma
Cement Curbing for Well.
S. D. M.-I am sinking a well and
have ' come to a running sand bottom
so that I cannot stone it up. Could
I make pipes or cement concrete and
put them down in sections ? How
thick ] would they require to he and
how much cement would be needed ,
provided the inside diameter were
three feet ?
You can case your well with con-
crete tile as you describe but there
would be danger of the tile sinking in
the quicksand If the sand Is vbry bad.
Tile four inches thick would be suf-
cient. It would require about one.halt
barrel of Portland cement for a tile
three feet long. Very fine screened
gravel will make a better tile with
less cement than If Band were used.
Sand may be used , but It will require
more cement in doing so.
