BENEFITS IN USING CEMENT
It May Be Profitably Employed in
Many Ways About Farm and
Costs but Little.
_ (By J. E. BUIDGEMAN.)
The proper use of cement supplies
so many needs on the farm that the
following article on cement brick ma
king, is sure to be of great value to
every ingenious farmer.
Cement brick may be easily made
on the farm, and used for all purposes
for which clay brick, or stone are now
used, and they may also be used for
some things that clay brick or stone
could not be used for. The cost in
most cases will be less than the clay
The illustrations show the mold for
making the brick, also six of the
finished brick on the drying palette or
The two sides of this mold are
formed of 2x6-inch timber; the 12
center cross pieces are of 1x6 boards,
while almost any lumber may be used.
Hard wood, however, if smooth and
straight is preferable.
The brick are supposed to be 2x4x8
inches and set as shown on one face.
This permits the molder to face the
brick with a very rich cement mixture
Mold for Brick.
—say about one inch and the remain
ing space in the mold is filled with a
leaner or weaker mixture.
While it is true that a mixture of
one part cement and four parts coarse
sand will make a brick that will sup
port a great amount of weight it will
not be waterproof, so hy filling the
first one inch with a mixture of one
part cement and one or two parts
sand we get a waterproof brick on the
face at greatly reduced cost.
The various parts of this mold are,
as'shown, interchangeable, and must
all be of the same size. The mold Is
held together by tjie two bolts CC
which have band taps that are quickly
loosened. The mold sets on a bottom
board B and is squared and held In
place by the four blocks AAA A.
Many failures have been made try
ing to make cement brick with molds
held together with hinges, hooks, etc.,
as almost all of these molds are con
structed in a way that it is impossible
to keep them square or sufficiently
rigid to tamp the cement In the molds.
When the molds have been filled the
palette or drying board is placed on
top of the mold and all turned upside
down, the bottom removed, the bolts
loosened and the parts may then be
easily taken away from the brick
without spoiling or chipping the
The mold must be smoothed with
sandpaper and kept well oiled. After
the mixture is well tamped in place,
level off the top with a straight board
and place the brick under some shed
or at least in the shade.
Keep the palettes under water for
several hours before using them, but
be sure that all the surplus water has
been drained off.
The entire operation of molding the
brick Is quickly and easily done.
For all ordinary work, use a mixture
of one part cement to three or four
parts coarse, clean sand. Mix dry and
add water until it is of the consistency
of thick jelly and will hold its shape
when squeezed in the hand.
Before laying the brick in the wall
wet them thoroughly and keep them
well dampened while drying for at
least ten days. While It will be pos
sible to handle them and if necessary
lay them In the wall only ten or fif
teen days old, they will not be entire
ly hardened for severa' months.
MAKING FARM CHORES EASY
Where Possible. Every Farmer Should'
Use Time and Labor-Saving
(Tty s. I PARKER.)
In the work about the farm it Is nt •
limes necessary to have an easy way
of transferring water, swill or any
other liquid to different parts of the
farm; and as it is impossible to use
horses and wagon for this work each i
time, much labor may be avoided by j
Axle Holds Barrel.
the construction of the handy water
and-barrel-carrier illustrated and de
scribed in this article.
The cost of same should be very
slight as on every farm there is usual
ly an old pair of wheels with an axle,
and the wood frame work can be
built in a few moments; this with a
barrel and a little blacksmithing com
pletes the carrier ready to help lighten
your labor and save you many a step.
To construct, have the axle bent
into a half circle as shown in the illus
tration, near to the hub have a short
block about two incites thick, fitted so
that it will rest upon the top of axle,
to elevate the handles so the barrel
Make your handles of two-inch
square lumber in the manner shown in
the illustration, or like an ordinary
push-cart handle. Xow have two irons
eight inches long and about one inch
wide; have one end of each one bent
up at right angles to make a hook
which is to hold the barrel in place.
These must be drilled with two
holes about as far apart as the axle is
wide, and then placed on the end of
the handle and over the block fitted
to the axle, then two holes are bored
down through the end of the handle
Into these holes a clip or hook is
fitted so that it goes around the axle
and up through the block, handle, and
iron hook on top, where it is drawn
tight with nuts so that the whole
framework is rigid.
Procure a good oil or molasses bar
rel and have two lugs made in an
"L" form with the part that fits
against the barrel flat, with two holes
in same for bolting to side of the bar
rel and with the projecting round
This is the hanger that the barrel
swings upon* and is placed a little
above the center of the barrel toward
the top, about two inches is ample.
To use, have the barrel set upright
in the usual manner, fill with w'ater or
other liquid, then roll up the carrier
and elevate the handles, which lowers
the hooks at axle end, these are
hooked over the lugs on barrel with
the sides of the barrel up even against
(lie semi-circular axle. You have only
to press down the handles to raise the
barrel from the ground and transport
to any place you desire upon the farm, j
. Water Barrel Carrier.
The bent axle prevents the barrel
from tipping over and also holds it
firmly so that it will not swing on the
lugs and thus make it harder to con
trol when carrying. It also keeps the
barrel from leaving its position on the
hooks bolted to the ends or the han
dles and serves as a fulcrum for the
handles to work upon as levers when
lifting the barrel when filled.
MILO GROWN AS FEED CROP
Plant Belongs to Nonsaccharin Sorg
hums and Resembles Kafir Very
Much in Appearance.
(Rv AT.VIN KEYSER. COI.ORADO AG
The campaign being conducted by
the Colorado Agricultural college in
an effort to get milo generally grown
as a feed crop on the plains of the
state has called forth a great deal of
inquiry concerning this crop.
Milo belongs to the family of plants
called sorghums. The sorghums are
divided into two large groups—the
sw'eet or saccharin sorghums, and the
nonsaccharin sorghums. These differ
chiefly in sugar content, and yield of
seed. The sap of the saccharin
sorghums Is sweet, and the non
saccharin sorghums have no sugar In
the sap. Milo belongs to the non
saccharin group of sorghums. It re
sembles Kafir very much in appear
ance and habits of growth, which is
quite natural, considering it Is a close
relative of Kafir. It is frequently
called milo maize, but this name is in
correct, as it is not a maize.
Milo grows erect, with thick, short
jointed stalks, attaining an average
height of from four to seven feet. The
grain is borne in heads at the top of!
the stalks. These heads reach a con
siderable size and are relatively short i
and compact. Where the stand is thin '
the heads get very large and turn
downward by their own weight. With
thicker stands the heads are smaller
and stand erect.
