BUSINESS AT WESTERN MACH
INE SHOP FAR ABOVE
ALSO HAMPERED FOR
Alfalfa Mill Soon to be Established
Only Obstacle Now is Title
to Site for Building.
From Friday's Pally.
A representative of the Journal
was a visitor yesterday at the ma
chine shops of the Western Machine
and Foundry company. and found
the wheels turning and the work
men all busily engaged.
With the limitations placed on ma
terial during the war period those
shops not engaged in turning out
government contract stuff found it
difficult to get enough material to
keep going even on a rather limited
scale. This was the condition the
local plant faced and although they
had innumerable orders lor eari
delivery on their books tiiey couui
not get enough material to operate
the plant to the limit of its capacity
and consequently numerous of tiie
employees of the institution resigned
to accept positions in plants turn
ing out war work, where they were
not hampered by lack if material.
or. as was me case to s-en-i.n in
stances, to enter the lighting forces
of Fncle Sam.
With the ending of hostilities the
matter of getting material is clearing
up quite rapidly and institutions of
this character are getting back on a
peace-time footing. Then. too. many
of the boys in the service a.e re
turning to their former positions of
civil life activity.
At the present time the local shop
has orders on its books for early de
livery of upwards of $200,000 worth
of work, but with a limi.eu suppiv
of help staring them in the fa.e. the
problem is nearly as vexing as that
caused by the recent snortago ot ma
terial, llight now ten more machin
ists could be used to good advantage,
and were it not for the lack of room,
fifty could be employed equally
profitable in the turning out of this
Among Ihe larger orders booked,
is one for twelve cone mat liincf with
a capacity of thousands of iee tr-im
cones per hour. When completed,
these are to go all over the country,
resides this they have advance orders
for several thousand of the Ford Saf

A Very Valuable Invention
The newest invention to be manu
factured in this institution is a ma
chine which shreds, cuts, grinds and
mixes forage plants at one operation,
while another compresses the mix
ture into a very small space, making
it more easily handled. Those who
have had experience with the grind
ing of corn fodder find that the eir
of corn itself contains but about
per cent of the nutriment of the
nlant. the remaining 4 7 per cent
constituting the stalk and leaves. It
has long been the practice to gather
the part of the crop representing the
5:! ner cent." and endeavor to save
as much as possible of the remain
ing 47 per cent by turning the stock
into the field t:i pasture from it. I J " it
such procedure, as every farmer and
stockman knows, is wasteful. Care
ful research is said to have proven
that only o0 per cent of the nutri
ment of the stalks and leaves i- pre
served when fed in this manner. Ihe
balance going to waste. Tims the
farmer sutlers a loss of approximate
ly one-third of the nutriment of his
corn crops under the procedure de
scribed above. In order to cir'-umvent
this loss. Mr. Sharp? has produced a
machine that will take care of the
entire crop and thus save what oth
erwise would be lost.
The success in the invention and
perfection of the machine to grind
and put this product iR shape tor
the market has been beyond even the
expectation of the inventor.
By using a combination of corn
fodder and alfalfa a product can be
obtained that contains almost as
much food nutriment as the origi
nal alfalfa and at a cost of about
two-thirds, as much at the present
prices of the two commodities. Ai-1
falfa costs around $30 a ton and thw
uew product- would cost about 20. j
Alfalfa has a nutriment stiengtii mf
ol.ti, while the mixture hast feed
ing strength of 49.7, thus bringing
it up to within two points, while the
cost is reduced some S3Vi per cent.
,This fact alone proves that the in-

remains that the operation o: a mi

it is proposed to erect the mill has

in its construction. There v on hand

construction and operation of the
mill. Vhen the mill shall have dem

The Western Machine shop is al
so producing a grinder, which will be
mounted upon a carriage for trans

to another or to different farms, and
the use of this machine will prove
of great benefit to t!.e farming com

To thwart Hracken's effort to wi.i

a note of warning to Andrew, who

It is the eve of her first big social
