. BARN OF CONCRETE
It Will Cost About .$1,800 to Build — By R. Hagcrly,
This 12-sided barn, as shown In
the illustration, was built of re-en-
torced concrete at a cost of about $1,800
by a Michigan correspondent of Pop-
ular Mechanics. About 150 loads of
Kravel and 300 barrels of cement were
usesd in the construction of the barn.
Kach side is It! feet long and 110 feet
from the ground floor to the base of
the roof. The walls were re-enforced
walls were made from a mixture of
one part cement and five parts sand
and Kravel. The lower one-third of
the walls is 12 inches; the next one-
third ten inches and the upper one-
third eight inches thick.
The roof is self-supporting, the walls
being specially built to withstand the
outward pressure. The roof is cov-
ered with felt rooting and coated with
cement. The forms used were made

with heavy wire fencing; this required
118 rods of the fencing. Old iron, such
as bridge iron, was used for re-enforc-
ing around the windows and doors.
The foundation was made

foundation was made from a mixture

BUTTER MAKER AND
True Spirit of Cooperation Must
Prevail—By J. J. Farrell,
I am asked to say a few words in
relation to the creamery manager and
Dairying Is one of the greatest, if
not the greatest, industries in Ameri-
ca. when we consider all the products
of the dairy, of which buttermaking
First, 1 will draw a comparison of
the things that are rural, as the local
tflr co-operative creamery, whichever
the case may In', is located mostly in
our rural districts, towns and villages,
sni? (lie value of their annual output
butter varies from $10,000 to $00,-
M)0 and $75,000.
Sttch a business not only needs a
manager, but ability, as well. We will
(first look into the affairs of our towns
a i<2 villages whose annual disburse-
ments varj from $1,000 to $:'.0,000 for
tffielr maintenance, including public
Improvements and beautifying the sur-
We will look at the management
of these towns and villages, which
usually consist of a mayor or presi-
dent, clerk or secretary, councilmen
or trustees, however they may be des-
ignated. all of whom are elected by
the people to serve the people to the
best of their ability, and if thig ability
is lacking or their services are negli-
gent, they are called to an accounting
at their spring meeting and election.
In many cases the unworthy are cast
aside, and in some cases the worthy
are also cast aside; but the communi-
ty pays the penalty, whether good or
The creamery, whether Independent,
co-operative or a central plant', as an
organization, is much the same as a
commonwealth in form. The local
creameries' disbursements are small,
while their net earnings are large and
profitable to their patrons and com-
Any organization that handles from
$10,000 to $40,000, and in a number of
eases $75,000 to $100,000 of a butter
product annually, should have a man-
ager, whether he be a buttermaker,
dairyman or merchant. He should be
fully qualified for the position, and to
that end he must have a keen insight
into the business in all its branches.
It is unnecessary for me to go into
detail in this short time. It is enough
to say, he should be educated in the
science of butter making, and should
have a broad knowledge of dairy farm-
ing In all its branches.
But whom do. we find in charge of
the management of these creameries,
as a rule? Eighty-seven per cent, of
them are entirely unfit to be called
managers. Some of them are select
ed because they own a 10, 20 or 50-
dollar share in a creamery; some, be-
cause they happen to have the greater
number of friends in the organization;
and some because, well, just because
we have to have one. Neither of these
types of managers are really neces-
sary, as the creamery with a good but-
termaker, honest, capable, and a good
business head, with no undesirable
manager to harass him, will, in most
cases, bo a winner. w
1 have said a few,things regarding
the manager, I want to tell you a few
things about tile buttermaker, as we
also have a variety of them. If I
were to stop making butter, and were
to hire to a buttermaker, I would not
meceBsaiily look around for one hav-
of two-by-ten-inch hemlock plank. The
work of mixing concrete, hoistirife and
lifting the forms was done by a gaso-
line engine with a double drum hoist,
one cable drawing the materials to
the mixer and the others operating
the crane. The crane was made on
a center pole 64 feet high.
The barn is equipped with all mod-
ern conveniences for taking care of
hay and grain and saving of labor in
caring for stock.
ing many years of experience, but for
one well qualified; should he have the
experience, so much the better.
I will state here some of the quali-
fications he should possess. He should
have a liberal education, a thorough
knowledge of dairying in all its de-
tails. including food products, and
some knowledge of the science of
breeding dairy cattle. This, together
with the knowledge of up-to-date but-
termaking and a well-halanced head,
with broad and liberal views, and a
smile that won't come off, even though
he is in the midst of many and trying
disputes with the patrons, is the kind
of a man I would have no fear to leave
in charge of my creamery. In short,
he should be a man capable of filling
many of the highest positions in the
it would Iws a Messing to a great
many communities s,Bcl creameries to
have a buttermaker and manager in
one, of ibis type. Should the work
get too heavy for Jiiiu. he could en
gage a helper who would be congenial
to him. However, there are creameries
that need two such men, one, whose
time is entirely taken up with the but-
ter making side, who is well equipped
to meet the problems of scientific but
ter making, as these problems present
themselves, the buttermaker manager
making his report to the secretary,
and he in turn, to the board of direc-
tors. The other should be selected as
manager, as well equipped for his du-
ties as his co-worker, the buttermaker.
Right here is where the true spirit
of co-operation must reign supreme.
Here is where you need two strong
minds working together for the same
end, which will lead to success. Here
is where the dollar and a hundred pet-
ty little things must be allowed to
run away with that true spirit that
means co-operation—harmony ami suc-
cess. Here is where you need the
strong man, the man who can look at
ignorance with pity, who can lead his
creamery patrons into the light of
creamery secrets, who can teach and
demonstrate what he teaches—in fact,
lie should be a student, and a master
of his profession. No one has anything
to fear from this kind of a man. It
is not the student of superior ability
that need concern us, it is the student
of only average ability that we must
reach and encourage, for, as every
individual grows in mental strength,
so grows the industry in power.
After all. it is only a question of ed-
ucation. The guardian genius of de-
mocracy is always the cultivated
mind; it is the only dictator that free-
men acknowledge, and the only secur-
ity that freemen desire. If the gov-
ernment can afford to pay every cadet
at West Point $500 a year to study sol-
diery, can she not better afford to edu-
cate her youth in the science of agri-
culture and its products. Trained ag
riculturists and dairymen are at least
as essential, as a trained soldier.
When the buttermaker and manager
receive this education, we need not
fear the result.

A Slight Misunderstanding.
Little Helen Bentley of Los Angeles,
aged five, dearly loves her grandma,
who has been living w ith her and her
parents. Recently grandma went to
Seattle for a visit, and caught cold
on the way. When she arrived there,
she wrote back to Helen's parents that
she had reached Seattle, but bad had
a hard fight with the grip. Helen
wanted to hear what grandma had to
say, and the letter was read to her.
Soon afterward she saw one of her
neighbors, and exclaimed; "Oh, Mrs.

ma. She got to Seattle all right, but

The Increased use of "Toris" for '
rheumatism is causing considerable
discussion among the medical frater- '
nlty. It is an almost infallible cure
when mixed with certain other ingre-
dients and taken properly. The fol- |
lowing formula Is effective: "To one-
half pint of good whiskey add one ;
ounce of Toris Compound and one
ounce of Syrup Sarsaparllla Compound. ;
Take In tablespoonful doses before
each meal and before retiring."
Toris compound is a product of tho
laboratories of the Globe Pharnta- i
ceutical Co., Chicago, but it as well as j
the other ingredients can be had from
any good druggist.
