Calomel is mercury or quicksilver

Power of Lightning.
Lightning has been proved to have
struck a building with a force equal
to more than 12,000-horse power. A
single horse power, in mechanical cal-
culation, is equivalent to raising a
weight of 33,000 pounds one foot in
a minute. The force of lightning,
therefore, has been proved to be equal
to the raising of 384,000,000 pounds
one foot in a minute. This is equal
to the united power of 12 of our larg-
est steamers, having collectively 24
engines of 500-horse power each. The
velocity of electricity is so great that
It would travel round the world eight
times in a second.

NEWEST IN CHEMISTRY
This is a recent discovery of Doctor
Pierce, head of the Invalids' Hotel,
Buffalo, N. Y. Experiments for sev-
eral years proved that there is no
other eliminator of uric acid compa-
rable. For those easily recognized
symptoms of inflammation—as back-
ache, scalding urine and frequent uri-
nation, as well as sediment in the
urine, or if uric acid in the blood has
caused rheumatism, "Anuric" acts
quickly. In rheumatism of the Joints,
in gravel and gout, invariably the
pains and stiffness which so frequently
and persistently accompany the dis-
ease rapidly disappear.

Mr William A. Kadford win answer
questions and give advice FREE OF
COST on all subjects pertaining to the
subject of building work on the farm, for
the readers of this paper. On account of
his wide experience as Editor, Author and
Manufacturer, he is, without doubt, the
highest authority on all these subjects.
Address all inquiries to William A. Rad-
ford. No. 1827 Prairie avenue. Chicago,

On the average-size farm it is often
not advisable to make separate build-
ings for all the various actftrltles of
the well-arranged and well-managed
farm. Various combinations are made
to cut down the cost of constructing
necessary buildings, and at the same
time sufficient room is provided so
that each part of the combination can
readily handle the work that it is in-
tended to do.
The accompanying floor plan and
perspective view show a combination
that can be made with considerable
success and satisfaction. Half of this
bam is devoted to a horse stable and
the other half is intended as an im.
plement shed. There are several rea-
sons why such a combination can be
built cheaply so as to provide the best
conditions for either part.
The floor can be made level over
be of good size to readily handle the
work that is being repaired. This
can be placed along the wall under the
windows, where good light will be
available. All the tpols necessary for
repair work of all kinds can be kept
In cabinets or in racks that can be
built along the walls near the bench.
Supplies of paints and oils can be
kept under the bench.
Hroad doors are provided in the
plan, so that the various farm imple-
ments can be taken through them
easily. Many of these ar of good
size, so that plenty of door room
should be furnished. Three sets of
double doors occupy the entire front
of the shed part of the barn, which
makes it possible to get out any piece
of equipment that is wanted without
disturbing the other machinery that
may be stored in the shed at the
In the horse stable end there are
standing stalls for six horses and also
two box stalls, each ten feet In width,
that can be used for any purpose. A
small space Is provided with a well-
built cupboard, where the harness can
There is at least one window pro-
vided for each stall, and the double
stall and the box stall each have two
windows. A wide passageway is pro-
vided through the stable so that equip-
ment of various kinds can pass
through the barn to the equipment
shed at the end.
The foundation walls, which are of
concrete, are carried above grade
about 18 Inches, which is a good
feature, as it protects the frame
from coming in contact with the wet
ground. A concrete wall cf this kind
also forms an effective barrier against
A very large storage space for hay
and straw is provided in the large
mow over the stable and shed. The
roof is of the framed gambrel type,
and Is self-supporting, so that no col-
umns or pillars are needed to block
up the space in the upper part of the
building. The trussed barn roof is
almost universally used now because
of this feature.
This particular plan shows a build-
ing such as would be most practical
Th South African Journal of Sci-
ence records the steps that have been
thus far taken, at the suggestion of
the South African Association for the
Advancement of Science, to Becure
legislation in various countries In the
Interests of science. The committees
of sections A and C of the British as-
sociation adopted the following resolu-
tion at the Australia meeting. "That
in view of the fact that meteorites
which convey information of world-
wide importance are sometimes dis-
posed or privately in such a way as to
deprive the public of this information,
the council be requested to take such
steps as may initiate international leg-
islation on the matter." Since the
Australian meeting this resolution has
been accepted by the council of the
British association and transmitted to

the entire building. The floors In the
stalls can be made of some material
over the concrete, but a concrete floor
is very successful in the implement
shed. The treated wood block floor
is also used very often in buildings
of this kind. Many farmers feel that
a floor in an Implement shed is an ex-
travagance, but its presence makes it
possible to keep the tools in the best
possible condition, as well a3 the
machines. More care will be taken in
keepfng all the farm machinery in
good condition if a floor is built so
that the building- can be kept clean.
Nine feet of headroom Is generally
provided in horse stables, and this
same height 1b about right for a shed,
where the farm implements are to be
stored. The floor under the mow can
therefore be made level.
Good, tight doors and windows are
absolutely necessary in a shed in
which machinery is kept. In addition
to the rain and snow that must be
kept out, there are also small animals
of all kinds, and especially chickens,
that invariably think the implement
shed was put up as a special home
for them, but they must be excluded
If the machinery is to be kept in the
proper condition. Good construction
and doors that will not be torn off
th£ir hinges are the best methods of
preventing trouble from this source.
If windows should accidentally be-
come broken they should be repaired
Immediately, as they would be in the
case of any of the other farm build-
ings. The implement shed is most
often neglected, but such should not
be the case, for no one will keep ma-
chinery in good condition in a ram-
The Implement shed can be finished
op in any way that is desired by the
Owner. It Is very necessary that a
work bench be provided and it should
for the average-sized farm. The cost
of construction would not be very
high, and the arrangement would be
very satisfactory to the man on the
Use of Barbed Wire.
Some idea of the extensive use ol
barbed wire for trench entanglements
may be gained from the fact that the
shipments of wire from the United
States to the allies now average more
than a million pounds a month, and
the total exports of barbed wire since
last July amount to more than Beven
million pounds. The barbed wire is
shipped direct to England, and from
there transshipped to France and
Italy. This wire Is woven in com-
plicated masses in front of the
trenches, and has to be replaced when
it is destroyed by artillery fire, which
frequently happens. Gf late the al-
lies have been ordering considerable
quantities of an extra heavy wire,
with especially large barbed prongs.
The Germans, too, are well provided
with barbed wire entanglements, but
very little of it is of American manu-
facture, although an occasional ship-
ment is said tc flnd its way into Ger-
many through Denmark or Sweden.—

These Three Women Tell How They
Escaped the Dreadful Ordeal of
Hospitals are great and necessary institutions, but they
should be the last resort for women who suffer with ills
Ciculiar to their sex. Many letters on file in the Pk^cham
aboratory at Lynn, Mass., prove that a great number of
women after they have been recommended to submit to anl
operation have been made well by Lydia E. Pinkham'9
Vegetable Compound. Here are three such letters. All
sick women should read them.
Marinette, Wis.—MI went to the doctor and)
he told me I must have an operation for a femala'
trouble, and I hated to have xt done as I hadbeent
married only a short time. I would have ternblel
pains and my hands and feet were cold all tha
time. I took Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com-'
pound and was cured, and I feel better in every
way. I give you permission to publish my name
because I am so thankful that I feel well again.1*

with female troubles that I could not do anything, and our doctor

without help so when I read about the Vegetable Compound and what
it had done for others I thought I would try it I got a bottle of

Bellevue, Pa.—" I suffered more than tongue can tell with terribla
bearing down pains and inflammation. I tried several doctors and
they all told me the same story; that I never could get well without
an operation and I just dreaded the thought of that. I also tried a
good many other medicines that were recommended to me and none
of them helped me until a friend advised me to give Lydia E. Pink-
ham's Vegetable Compound a trial. The first bottle helped, I kept
taking it and now I don't know what it is to be sick any more and I
am picking up in weight, I am 20 years old and weigh 145 pounds.

tunity to recommend it to any other suffering woman."—Miss Irexx

Engineer J. E. FellowB of the C. N. O. & T. P. Ry, of Chattanooga,
Tenn., writes that when he was firing he waa attacked with kidney trouble.
He took various medicines and tried doctors, but neither did him any good.
A friend advised him to try
Dr. Thacher's Liver and Blood Syrup
He did so, and improved from the first. He has never been troubled since,
and what it did for him it will do for you. It is the safest and surest treat-
ment for indigestion, kidney and liver trouble. 50c and $1. at all druggists.
