Nearly a century ago efforts were made to test the effect of electricity upon the growth of plants, and, while the experiments were necessarily lim ited in scope at that early date in the development of electrical science, the results seemed to show that vegetable growth was considerably benefited by currents of electricity made to pass through the soil when the plants were growing. Electricity at that time was generated by means of chemically oper ated electrical batteries, and only com paratively weak currents were obtain able at a high cost. Recent experiments have had the ad vantage of strong electrical currents obtained at small cost, and, while it is too early to speculate upon what elec tricity may accomplish for gardeners and farmers in promoting growth, the possibility of help from this source can be looked forward to. An apparent gain of 30 per cent was made in straw berries. 17 per cent in cucumbers. 33 per cent in beets, and there was a small percentage of gain in the sugar obtained from the beets. Grain gained from 20 to 39 per cent The electricity in this case was conveyed to the plants through small copper wires, placed closely together about a feet above the ground. Chinese Barrow. This wheelbarrow is very similar to the vehicle used by the Chinese. The main advantagesr are-first, most of the weight is in the wheel and, second. the barrow can be dumped straight ahead with but very little effort To make it use 2 by 2 inch pieces for sills and handles. Make the legs two inches longer thian wheel is high so as to al low two Inches for lap on sills Any wheel will do. hut the wider the tire the better, for there will be more weight on the wheel than on the wheel of an onrinary barrow.

Couldn't Reach It This should be good news for our en* A ergetic young men and young women who are desirous of earning a good salary. The U. S. Civil Service Depart ment has put out a most urgent appeal for as many as can to at once prepare for and take the Civil Service examina tion for stenographers and typist, at t salaries ranging from $840 to $1200 per' t annum. There has been five special ex- a aminations held in Tyler this year and another is to be held this month. This I is one class of work that the war didn't t reach. Our American Government is t needing more help than ever befo'e for our present administration has s been an exceptionally active one. All a lines or business are looking brighter, r yet at all times the demand has been' greater than the supply for telegraphy operators. The northern railroads are a literally blocked in moving grain and p handling merchandise. One of the northern roads within the last thirty days, ordered ten young men from the I e Tyler Commercial College, Tyler, Texas t at one time. In less than two weeks o they ordered five more and they have s S now requested this institution to fur- l* nish them with all the men they can t properly qualify. This, together with L the fact that the United States Govern* a ment has addressed the Tyler Commer- 0 ciol College six personal communica" o tions dnring the year, insisting that o their graduates take the Civil Service examination, shows there is; even in the hardest of times, a demand for the p graduates of the Tyler Commercial College. The high class training given by this institution fits its graduates to go into the government work at splen did salaries or into the best railroad offices, direct from the school room. There is no use of our young people sitting down and saying they can't get work when it is a positive fact that they can enter the Tyler Commercial College at Tyler, Texas, and in three to five months prepare themselves for a splendid position at a beginning salary of from $840 to $1200 per year. Before I lwould stay idle another week, 1 would write or phone this institution for catalogue and full particulars and make my arrangements to enter at once that they might place me in a good salaried position. Judging a Cow. A cow with a bright eye is to be pre ferred to one with a dull appearance. She will tend to business more than the other; also the one with large nos trils is to be preferred because the large nostrils indicate that she will al ways have a good supply of air to op erate her lungs and so her other bodily functions will be performed promptly and regularly. A good cow will have short legs, and they will be smooth and without extra meat.-Farm and Fireside.
