Old-Time Gravity Method May Bo Used to Advantage With 8eeds of Egg Plant, Tomatoes, Etc The seeds of egg plant, tomato seeds and other small seeds may be separated, showing the good and the bad, by means of weak brine. In the Egg Plant Fruit bottles shown here, the one on the left contains pure water, upon which many seeds are shown as floating and a larger number at the bottom. In the bottle on the right, It is a 20 per cent solution of common salt in which egg plant seeds that sank in pure water were placed, with the result that many remained at the top. All seeds that swim in water should ce rejected, and a further separation oan be made as shown In the illustra tion by placing the seeds that sink In water In a weak solution of sugar or mlt The percentage of seeds, large or small may be determined by the dens ity of the solution employed. Those that float may be removed, This gravity method Is simply the old-time practice of "brining" wheat, Distributing Machine Can Be Made By Any Ingenious Person at Very -Small Expense.

Fasten one end of the box and axle to a wheel, and let the other wheel turn on the axle. A support may be put In the center the same as the end, but it is not necessary unless the box Is made longer than ten feet, as It is very strong and the axle breaks tho fall of the contents and prevents packing. The feed Is regulated by using two three-Inch strips, with one bolt in the center and a heavy screw through the ends into the long strips. Leave the center cross strip long enough tor the handle to close.
