W. Curl, Clerk Waste of Machinery Fully as much machinery .rusts and rots out through pocr hous ing facilities as is worn out thru hard use, in the opinion of W. E. Grimes, assistant professor of farm management in the Kansas State Agricultural college. 'Where it is at all possible the machinery should be housed dur ing the winter months at least," commented Professor Grimes. "Where it is impossible to house all the machinery, the wooden parts should be removed and put in shelter. The working parts which are likely to ru.st if expos ed to the weather can be pro tected to some extent by a coat of axle grease or heavy oil. Care of harness is important. The life of a set of harness can usually be doubled by taking good care of it and oiling the leather parts once or twice a year. During the winter months the. work is not rushing, and the' farmer wiil find it to his advan tage to overhaul all machinery and repair or replace a'l broken part--. The farmer who has a forge, anvil, and small set of tools will find it very convenient and profitable to do this kind of work. During the harvest or the crop ping season machinery of ten gets out of repair, snd is put avvav in th.it condition. Unless the "ma chinery is overhauled during the winter the pirts will not be re paired, as a rule, nntil the ma chine needed to rare for the next crop. It is then necessarv to top and repair the machine at a time when time is valuable " Ccrtnin Cure For Croup Mrs. Rose Middleton. of Creen ville, Illinois, has had experience in the treatment of this disease.

SERVICE Some Diggers Have Been Working Un derground for More Than Sixty ' Years, the Records Show. Some interesting facts on- longev ity among coal miners have been compiled by the anthracite bureau of information in Wilkesharre. The recent retirement from active serv ice of W. D. Owens, superintendent of lhe Lackawanna division of the I (high Valley Coal company, serves to rail attention to the number of workers who have filled out long ca reers in the anthracite mines. Owens has served as foreman and superin tendent for 3!) years, and, although he has turned over the active duties of li is position to his successor, is to remain with the company in an ad visory capacity. A few weeks ago occurred the ileal h of John T. Williams of Lans ford, a pioneer miner in the Panther Cnek valley. He was seventy-five years old, and had spent C7 years as an employee in the mines, and had leenwith the Lehigh Coul and Nav igation company for C5 years. Dur ing the last year, because of deaths in his family, Thomas Parry of Nes queehoning decided to move from the anthracite field to make his home with a relative. The decision to quit the mines came after a period of C2 years had elapsed since he first commenced work in them as a boy. A long stretch of time marks the service period of llobert T. Smiles of Pitlston, who lately resigned his po sition with the Pennsylvania Coal company after being continuously employed for (11 years. Smiles be gan work as a report boy, anil had filled most of the positions in and sibout the mines. For ;?4 vears he had been continuously employed as nn engineer at .one mine. 1'rovi-j deuce Journal.
