A preparation of silver which may be made in a plastic form like wax or clay, and also thinned down to the consistency of paint has been discovered by a member of the staff of a large American research labor atory. Copper, copper alloys and bronzes may be worked in the same manner. By simple technology, the preparation may bo reduced to the pure metal shape. A sculptor may work it in without any change in its form or the round or in relief, just as he does his usual materials, or in dilution it may be applied to a metallic surface with a brush. It greatly simplifies the problem for artistic work of a high order, al though, of course, it is more expen sive than stamped ware. Medalli ons and .figures may thus be present ed in the original without the need of casting, and such articles as sil ver sets may be made of which every member is original and unique. It provides a new medium for ortists. The invention is patented and ready for introduction. SUGAR-GROWING IN IRELAND. In 1790 sugar growing was estab lished in Ireland, the Irish climate being remarkably adapted for the growth of bulbous roots of a su perior quality, whether for the manufacture of sugar or for feeding purposes. In those days the people of the Irish nation were the greatest sugar consumers in the world. With the present great scarcity of sugar in the United States and other parts of the universe Ireland is seizing the opportunity for the re-establishment of the industry and for making the Irish nation once again the greatest sugar-growing country.

OPPORTUNITY FOR SELLING FARM PRODUCTS DIRECT TO CONSUMER mm ¥ it m Wi F" V.w The Automobile Brings City Customers to the Door. The Automobile Brings TIiere are approximately 7.500,000 automobiles In the United States and there are almost that many farmers. In this year, when the most expen sive crop ever raised hy the American farmer .seems likely to pile up on Ills hands for lack of a profitable market, a way is suggested to reduce surplus hy attracting automobile trade direct to the farms. Most city automobile owners drive into tlie country once a week or more, and every farm located on an automo bile road has dozens or hundreds of possible customers for Its fruits, vege tables, poultry and eggs passing Its gate every day. The war made the market basket popular, and the ordi nary automobile owner who keeps house would he perfectly willing to take home a bushel or more of pro duce if by so doing lie could lessen his living expenses. Stands Along Many Roadways. Roadside stands for the sale of fruits and vegetables are seen along many highways and frequently have proved profitable. But observation shows that they have not been de veloped to the full measure of success, line of the principal difficulties Is that the autoist does not see the stand un til lie is abreast of it, after which lie must make up Ids mind and cheek his machine. Then, in nine cases out of ten. he concludes that there will be another stand farther along and that il is not worth while to turn a round and go back. One farmer in Pennsyl vania solved this difficulty by placing . a series of signs along the entire hnlf ; ni le front of his farm. -These greeted j tlie motorist. "Fresh Fruit One-Foerth Mile." "Sweet Cider 60 Rods." "Fresh Comb Honey 50 Rods." "Fresh Vegetables 40 Rods." "Fresh Eggs 20 Rods." The motorist's eye thus was at tracted and lie had time to make up his mind, and in a large number of instances stopped and made a pur chase. The signs were inexpensive and yielded a large profit. There are many motorists who trav CYSlËK RAiSING IN HOLLAND Highly Scientific Methods Employed in That Country Have Been Re markably Successful. In the Industry represented hy oyster cultivation, Holland Is tlie most sys tematic in its operations and employs more elaborate methods than any other country in the world. The numerous sounds that indent the coast of Hol land. particularly In the region of the River Scheldt. afTord excellent facili ties for the propagation of the oyster and enable the country to conduct the most successful oyster Industry In Eu rope. PubMc dredging Is not permitted, as the result of that system was the threatened exhaustion of the fisheries, and the beds have been carefully sur veyed and specific tracts are leased to Individuals and companies, who are thus enabled to conduct the propaga tion of the oyster in a systematic man ner that Insures the best results from the territory available. Many growers lease several tracta In different locali ties. and adapted to different purposes, which facilitates the various opera tions, as the oysters can be shifted from one place to another, according to the season and the stage of de velopment. A few of the oystermen plant shells on the hanks, as Is done In many places In this country, bnt the largest and most successful propa gators are equipped with their own tanks and ponds, located In conven ient shallow hays, in which they carry on the culture. MEASURE HEAT OF STARS Scientific Instrument Used at Wash ington Is Sensitive to an Almost Miraculous Degree. 1 One of the experts employed by the government bureau of standards ta Washington has perfected aa instru ment which measures the heat of a star so far away that It can't be aeea with the unaided eye This aame In strument la sensitive enough to be af fected by the heat of a candle 1SS miles away. "What la the practical vaine of sunh labor?" asks Thomas H. Uzzell In Everybody's. "Well, for one thing, these experiments by Doc be up of el over the same route time after time. The farmer learns to recognize them. Children especially nowadays learn to know makes of automobiles at sight and can pick out those which fre quently pass. One effective way of catching tlie motor trade Is to note tlie license numbers, look them up at the city hall or police station on some trip to town, and then drop them postal cards calling attention to tlie advan tage of carrying home a bushel of this and that product on their next trip. This form of appeal is more effective if the farm has a distinctive name, as a constantly increasing num ber of farms have. One thing essen tial to building up even a transient trade in farm products is that the prices shall he reasonable, preferably a shade below city market prices, and that tlie goods shall be of honest quality. Too much emphasis cannot he placed on the latter feature. There is. of course, a temptation to reason that tlie same customer will not cotne hack again, but this is likely j\ot to he so, and even if it Is. there is a broad freemasonry among motorists, and tlie word quickly spreads that one of tlie number has been cheated, whether it he hy a garage, repair man. hotel or dealer, city or country. Fair Dealing Pays Best. The farmer has t o market tils 1 rotl uce sotiieu i'll ere. If he takes it to tile city, it will be refill ly in si meted for . pmlity nml the pi rice will be regu Intel ! by s apply anti demand. lf he wlli -place liis prew 111 ct in such posi tion a« to at traut a ml arrest the I'tiss in In ta a In H. ing motorist and then make the price and quality such that the motorist wants to come that way again or tells his friends to stop, lie is on ids way to a business that innv he made sea son long and highly profitable. If tlie farmer keeps on hand a supply of suitable bags or packagi-s in which to handle his products, it will mean many a saie which otherwise would lie lost because the autoist would often not he prepared to handle tlie things he would like to buy. This idea is capa ble of adaptations that will suggest themselves. tor t'otilentz have made a suhstamiHi contribution to the theory and tech nolog.v of measuring high tempers tures which will melt any known mb stance. Making use of this new know! edge, other bureau men have greatly Improved the high-temi*ernturp ther mometers which are used In the steel industry to measure the temperature of molten steel. One of the biggest Improvements in the production of steel in recent years Is the result. "Formerly many millions of dollars' worth of steel products depended upon the trained eye of the foreman In es timating the temperature of steel from Its color. But these new thermome ters don't drink ; they don't fall ; and their accuracy means vast savings In money, better steel, a decided step for ward In America's Industrial sov ereignty." On Toads. "Many atnries are extant tending to show that toads have been found alive in rocks or In soil deep In the earth; yet so far a'a Investigated by the writer In no case haa the evidence been at all conclusive," says A. H. Kirkland Wi an article on "The Garden Toad" In Boys' Elfe. "On the other hand, experiments have shown that toads may he kept alive at least 18 months sealed up In plaster or limestone. There Is little doubt that the toad may live to be 20 years old, or more. "Though It lives alone In rummer, toads often hibernate In cot nies of Naif a dozen or more. In feeding, usually by night, the toad patrols a fairly well-defined beat; gerden and flower beds are frequented, and par ticularly the ground under tre lights, where numerous Insects fall fluttering from the lamps above. When food if abundant, aa shown by axperlments on toads In cages, the animal eats an equivalent of four square meals dally, consisting of caterpillars, cut-worms beetles, ants, etc." First Clocks Simple Affaira.
