THE LA150K STANDARD, JANUARY, 1910. PATRONIZE HOME INDUSTRY UNION CIGARS HOMEMADE SPRAYER. Serviceable Outfit That Can Be Estily and Cheaply Made. The spray pump herewith described cost $11, writes a correspondent of the Scientific American. Any ordinary workman who is handy with tools could put the sprayer together in a day. It was assembled from the fol lowing: A riding cultivator frame, pole and wheels (old scrap iron), a good coal oil barrel (price $1), a three scwttm AMERICAN HX Ik jT sensitivity to red is suppressed.

REFRIGERATOR IN WELL Efficient Cooling Apparatus Where Ice Is Lacking. A country place is not always situat ed where ice can be procured during the summer months, and a substitute refrigerator must be provided. A resi dent of a country place devised a cool ing apparatus which he placed in his well. The device consisted of a box about one foot square made of boards hav ing a length to reach almost to the water level a"d to extend about four feet above tU,: platform of the well. A short box chaining several shelves is made to d easily into the long one, similar a dumb waiter.

After putting the above material together I was able to get easily a pressure of 150 pounds per square inch, a very necessary pre requisite to apply the bordeaux mix ture with the right force. Directions for assembling are as fol lows: Take the valves out of the cyl inder of any cast iron force pump. Replace these valves with the plain brass two inch cylinder and valves. Cut off with a hack saw the two inch cylinder to the right length to just fill the cast cylinder. Fill in the space between cast cylinder and brass cylin der with plaster or cement, being sure that the brass cylinder is in the exact center of the cast cylinder. Attach the plunger vlve of brass cylinder to the plunger i&ton of the force pump and couple up the piston to the handle of the pump so as to get a full stroke. As only a small amount of liquid is needed in spraying, the object of this reduction of cylinder is to lessen the ilow and increase the pressure. The reduction of three to two halves the flow and doubles the pressure. Mount the pump on the barrel and the barrel on the riding cultivator frame. Make an agitator as follows: In the barrel, near the bottom, on the end or head of the same, hang with a T hinge a board made of oak 1 by 6 by 2 feet to swing up and down. Connect the board with the pump plunger by a steel rod so that it will swing up and down with the stroke. The steel rod should enter the barrel through an opening made to pour in the liquid.

The smaller box containing the shelves is filled with things to be kept cool and the box then lowered to the bottom of the long box, or near the water in the well. The rope holds the box in this position until the food is wanted, when a few turns of the crank will bring the box and its contents to the top within easy reach from the out side. Popular Mechanics.

Experiments made by the officers of an English railroad seem to demon strate that a waterproof cement may be made from a mixture of cement and clay. The best results were ob tained with cement mixed with clay in proportions of one of clay to seven of cement and the mixture then used as the cement in a 1.3 sand mortar. Blocks of this mortar over eight inches thick were impermeable. Specimens six inches thick containing the same materials, but mixed with 5 per cent alum solution, were also impermeable when subjected to a forty pound water pressure.
