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

pole and wheels (old scrap iron), a
good coal oil barrel (price $1), a three

soon as his attention is called to a red
object his eye Immediately responds,
and he sees the object as it really is.
In other words, the temporary "red
blindness" disappears immediately
when he is informed that red rays are
present in the light which strikes his
eye. Scientific American.

inch cylinder cast iron force pump
($6), a plain brastwo inch cylinder
and valve ($2), a piece of good three
quarter inch hose and a spraying noz
zle ($2); total cost, $11. 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.

with an old fashioned windlass. 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.

A Waterproof Cement.
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
