Good durable clstorna In clay or
loamy ground may be made by plas
tering cement mortar dlrectlj on the
earth surfnco of tho excavation In
Rome sections of the country n great
many cisterns arc made this way and
covered by putting timbers across and
building ntloor of double thick Inch
stuff laid to break joints Tho spaces
over the wnll and between the Umber
nre tilled In with cement and a dralt1
la cut In one side while the cement Is
soft A cistern built In this way may
last for ten or twelve years without
any trouble but there Is no certainty
about it V
A great deal better way Is to make I
a round form of beveled staves lightly
hooped to hold them In place Then
dig the excavation four cr six Inches
larger nil around than the outside of
the wooden form Then mix concrete
made of one part best Portland cement
two parts clean sharp sand and four I
parts broken atone
If tho cistern Is small havo tho form
all ready to lower by erecting a tripod
with pulley and tackle to lift It gently
down Then put Jn n floor of concrete
the full size of the excavation Tamp
It thoroughly to pound the nit out and
make It set solid Before this has time
to harden lower the wooden form and
fill In the shIes so the bottom ard Bides
will unite making one solid stone
All easy way to make the neck of
tho cistern Is to put n floor of boards
on top of the circular wooden form
nud pile earth on this floor packing it
down ana shaped high enough to
reach the grade level To form the clr
cular opening at the top make either a I
