Recent Discovery Will Be a Boon to
Sculptors and Workers in
the Metal.
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.
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.

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

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

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

is. of course, a temptation to reason
