MOLDS FOR MAKING CONCRETE
SEWERS AND CULVERTS
Collapsible Forms for Mixing Cement In Short Time and
' at Small Expense By A. A. Houghton.
The necessity of setting up and tnk
ing down forms In innklng molds for
Bowers bridges nnd culverts of con
crete work 1b a great wnste of time In
addition to the great nmount of lum-
ber required. With tho simple form
described nnd Illustrated herewith
which can bo constructed by any one
In a short time and nt n slight expense
the labor In handling forms when
molding nil classes of bridges culverts
nnd sowers will be Bnved ns In n few
minutes time tho form can bo placed
in position to mold n section and by
simply removing tho key blocks tho
form will neatly .fold together so that
It can bo removed nnd used again
without delay In construction.
Tho manner of construction for a
culvert C feet 9 Inches wide and 3 feet
4 Inches high when completed Is to
use for onch section 24 one-twelfth seg-
ments of a circle as four sots of six
each are used as supports to cac sec-
tion. Tho best way to mako theso is
to cut 24 pieces of S-Inch plank 2
Inches thick nnd 19V4 Inches long;
take one of these pieces nnd mako a
pattern by marking on ench end 1

inch from the top on one side. In this
lVfc-lnch space draw a curved lino
from the marks nt each end so as to
bring tho highest point of tho curve
in tho center of the top edgo of tho
piece. This will mako one-twelfth seg-
ment of a circle of tho desired diam-
eter. In mltering tho ends mark a
point 1 Inch from each end along the
bottom of tho piece; then draw a line
from this mark to the end of tho oval
line at the top and when this three-
cornered piece Is cut off tho correct
miter is obtained for the purpose.
If tho length of tho completed sec-
tion is to be 12 feet use lumber 2
Inches wide and 1 inch thick; of this
length lay four ot tho segments of
circle wttli oval sides up at equal dis-
tance npart and cover with tho 12-foot
lumber nailing on top. Tho oval seg-
ments should be so covered as to leave

side; this in planed down on ono edgo

Tho poultry raiser who Is fortunate
enough to have a lnrgo area of ground
should not overlook tho turkey as a
money maker. Ilowover never keep
turkeys and hens together. There are
ailments which aro almost harmless
to hens which provo fatal to turkeys.
In raising turkoys keep them free from
lice and do not overfeed them. In tho'
spring the turkoys need green food in
sects or animnl food and plenty of
fresh cool water and a good range. Do
not keop them shut up In houses ox-
cept in winter nnd oven then except
when sleet falls or the weather is ex-
tremely severe they must have plenty
of air. Ono of tho most fntal diseases
to turkeys is blackhead. In some
plnces this dlseaso has wiped out

symptom. This hpwovcr sometimes
occurs from other Intestinal disorders
and does not nlono signify tho pros-

A Canadian's Opinion of Bad But-
ter. A Canndlan farmer thus ex-
presses his opinion on bad butter:
"While- tho subject is up why is it
that so much butter Is bad and n lot
or It not flt for human consumption?
Let any farmer who reads this ask
himself tho next time ho is carrying
the milk to the house from tho cow
stable and hoj notices a brown Bcum
on . the top of It what that brown
Bcum really is. And then lot him ask
hlmsolf what he would think if when
he got to tho house ho found his good
wife kneading a batch of dough with
handB as filthy as his own. Let him
wonder whether ho could whistle two
bars of 'Home Sweet Home' before
Mnlodlnc. And yet. sir tho bread
would be Just as flt for food as tho
butter made from that milk. For my-
boU I beliove that 'bad butter' could

supporting timbers so as to mako n
tight Joint when thoy nro joined to-

tho above manner Join them together
with a hinge on each support as Illus-
trated In Fig. 1 nnd Fig. 2 requiring
20 hinges. As illustrated. In Fig. 2 tho
hinges are all placed on tho bottom

By using n flat strap hlngo for this
there will bo very Httlo mark loft In
tho completed work. For tho crosB
supports cut four pieces of 2x4-lnch
lumber 4 feet 10Vi inches long. Each
one of tho bottom pieces Is cut 1 foot
from each end nnd tho balanco of strip
cut In tho center making four pieces;
Join together with throe hinges ns
Illustrated In Fig. 1 and Fig. 2 putting
one hinge on top of tho strip and two
on tho bottom at tho joints and then
fasten to tho bottom supportB with
hinges nt bottom of tho strip and
fasten to tho support nt nbout tho
center. Thla allows theBO cross sup-
ports to break down as illustrated in
Fig 2 and thus folds tho section to-
gether. The top cross pieces or supports
aro cut from the same lumber 3 foot (J
inches long nnd are divided into four
pieces in a proportlonato manner ns
the bottom cross supports and aro
hinged together and fastened to sec-
tions in tho identical manner ns the
bottom ones. This allows both cross
supports to fold down alike and thus

used to hold tho cross supports In

death soon occurs. When the dlseaso
Is at Its height tho head assumes a
dark color hence tho name "black-
head." Young turkeys nro much more
susceptible or thoy may bo more deli-
cate and cannot withstand tho lnvn-
slons of the parasites so woll. Thoy
begin by moping nnd humping ns if
they wcro cold. A blackening of tho
head does not always occur.
Tho dlseaso is caused by animal
parasites which can bo dotected only
by the aid of a microscope. Clean food
given to fowls as ono bird with a dls-
easo will Infect tho feeding ground
of others. A sick bird Bhould be
removed from tho flock and plnced in
closo quarters which should after-
ward bo disinfected or the bird mny
bo killed at onco and then should bo
burned. Medical treatment is not very
successful owing to the difficulty of
reaching tho parasites at tho seat
of tho disease yet treating them with
somo of tho following remedies may
bo worth tho troublo:
Sulphur five grains; sulphate of
Iron ono grain; sulphnto of quinine
ono grain; place this amount in cap-
sules and administer one night nnd
morning to ench turkoy for a veolc.
If the bird does not respond to treat-
ment kill It at onco without drawing
blood nnd then burn tho carcass dls-
1 infecting tho coop.
Effect of Potato Imports In the
face of heavy Importations of potatoes
from England prices grow firm. An
analysis of tho situation indicates that
a shortcgo of 30000000 bushels in tho
crop corapnrod with last year is not
likely to bo overcome by importations
says Farm and Home. Receipts from
nbroad however may cause some eas
lng off In prices from tlmo to time.
Counteracting tho heavy importB is
the Increased demaud at this tlmo for
potatoes for seed purposos. Somo nx-
iety lest Gorman potatoes flood tho
market prompted an Investigation of
conditions. It appears that oconn
and rail freights from Germany aro
bucIi that potatoes from that country
cannot profitably he handled oxcopt
perhaps at eastern ports.

When thousands of women say that they have been
cured of their ailments by a certain remedy does this not
prove the merit of that remedy ?
Thousands of women have written the story of their
suffering and have told how they were freed from it by
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound for thirty
years these reports have been published all over America.
Without great merit this medicine could never have
gained the largest sale of any remedy for woman's ills
never could have become known and prized in nearly every
country in the world.
Can any woman let prejudice stand between her and that
which will restore her health ? If you believe those who
have tried it you know this medicine docs cure.

your mind to give Mrs. Pinkham'e medicine a chance to
