One of the drawbacks to concrete work lor certain purposes Is that It is porous ami absorbent, which Is a detriment In cellar floors, cisterns, silos, watering i roughs, etc, A recent bulletin of the depart ment of agriculture, (No 230) gives a recipe for water-proofing concrete, the process being th" admixing with the cement of "certain mineral oils in small proportions, not to exceed 10 per cent of the cement used." Ill other words, about two and a half quarts of oil should ho used to a 94-pound hag of cement after tho latter has been mixed with the sand lodge made Into a stilt mortar. Ihe Xha oil should ho thoroughly worked Into tin; muss until all trace of It as oil . has disappeared It Is also Import j ant that tho right kind of oil should bo used, and it is specified that lt shouMS be a fluid petroleum product with no admixture of fatty or veg etable oils. The use of tho wrong oil will impair the Strength of tho concrete. It is stated that concrete prepare, according to directions is not imper vious to heavy water pressure, hut It la "practically non-absorbent under low heads."
