New Idea for Mine Props.
A substitute for mine props which
has been tried and found to give every
satisfaction has -been made by Edward

points about the new props are that"
they are simple in construction, are
indestructible, and do not deteriorate
in water or damp. The chief compo
nent materials are colliery cinders,
stone and crushed clinker, which,
when washed, manipulated, combined
and duly strengthened, result in a

BIRDS PROTECTION IN PARKS
Subject Is Engaging the Attention of
Town Authorities in all Sections .
of the Country.
In many eastern cities, Where the
winters are most severe, the park
officials maintain feeding stations for
wild birds. Even as far up 'in "the
frozen north" as Minneapolis a num
ber of such winter feeding places are
found in every park of their extensive
system. Theodore Wirth, the super
intendent of parks, says : "We have
a long severe winter and find it neces
sary to feed birds regularly every day
for months if we are to hold them in
our parks for the summer. We have
also built and placed a large number
of nesting boxes or bird houses which
are well populated. We protect birds
In every possible way and the local
Audubon society is doing excellent
work. A good many kjnds of birds
which were rarely seen here a few
years ago are now found in large num
bers, and many which formerly left In
the fall now stay with us over winter."
We have, fh many parks, sufficient
shrubbery for cover, we are not trou
bled much with cats, yet park men
should be required to kill all found
within the several larger parks and to
keep none except a single cat In each
storehouse. Encouragement should be
given in every way to the increase of
native birds and those of bright plum
age and sweet song from other lands
should be introduced. The country,
not the city, should perform the office
of Introduction of new kinds. In a
climate so mild as ours there should be
a thousand-fold as. many birds as we
now have and the parks should be
filled with them. Los Angeles Times.
PREPARE FOR HOME GARDEN
National Health, as Weil as Conserva
tion and Patriotism, Demand
Planting of Many This Season.
The home garden this coming season
will mean more than it did last year
or ever before. It is not only a means
of national conservation and patrio
tism; a measure of national health
lies within it. The man who can and
who fails to put in a home garden
next spring will be a slacker. The
government stands ready to help in
the garden, and government bulletins
on garden subjects may be obtained by
writing to the Division of Publications,
Department of Agriculture, Washing
ton, D. C, for a list of publications
available for distribution. Many of
the state agricultural colleges, too,
have garden bulletins for free distri
bution. Sometimes, In many states of the
Union, there is a chance to plow the
garden early. When that chance
comes the garden should be manured
and plowed. Barnyard manure is a
source of weed seeding, but it is the
most satisfactory fertilizer usually ob
tainable. A spot four or five feet
square should be selected at the low
est, wettest spot in the garden for a
compost pile or pit, if not too much
trouble to dig a shallow pit. Into this
pit throw all grass cuttings, leaves,
vegetable tops and pea vines and to
mato plants. They rot in a year or
two and form a valuable source of
humus for the garden soil. Country
Public Building Architecture.
It is an unfortunate circumstance
that the concept of "architecture," to
most persons, is limited to libraries,
art galleries and other public build
ings. These they feel, are "architec
ture;" and "architecture," to fulfill the
most popular conception of it, must
have Greek columns, and be executed
in stone, on a scale more or less grand,
and at an expenditure of equally con
So far as, this general popular esti
mate goes, It is an excellent and high
ly desirable thing. The people of
every town and city, the people even
of every village, should be keenly in
terested In the architectural merit of
every public building which Is being
erected with city funds. They should
demand the highest order of archi
tectural merit and should come to
learn some Intelligent discrimination
between architectural merit and fi
nancial expenditure. The library, for
example, in a neighboring town may
have cost several thousand dollars
more to build than the library In one's
own town, but It may not be neces
sarily better architecturally. Ex

In order to insure symmetry of

IF WOMEN SHOULD BE NEEDED IN FARM WORK .

English Women Learning How to Do Dairy Work Should They Bo Needed to

Essential Points Given for Con
sideration by Department
URGE CAUTION IN PREPARING
Volunteers Should Be Organized in
Units and Provision Made for Theip
Own Living Quarters Matron
for Each Unit.
PRELIMINARY TRAINING I
If it becomes necessary in
case of an acute farm labor
stringency to accept woman vol
unteers for farming operations
other than the lighter ones to
which they are accustomed, some
sort of preliminary training will
be necessary to utilize the large
class of woman volunteers from
the cities who are unfamiliar
with farm work. This article
points out some suggestions and
precautions that should be tak
en into consideration in prepar
ing women for these tasks. The
suggestions given here have been
obtained in a study of this prob
lem by specialists of the United
States department of agricul
ture, both in this country and
In other countries. Many of the
suggestions are based on the ex
periences of England, which has
trained and is using 300,000
women on farms.
Women should not be trained to go
on farms before there is an actual
and imperative need for their services.
The department of agriculture hopes
that it will not be necessary to employ
women in heavier lines of farm work
than they have been accustomed to
doing. If, to save the food harvest,
women are needed in the heavier
operations and the development and
training of unskilled woman workers
appears advisable, the following points
should be taken into consideration:
No woman should be accepted who
is not at least eighteen years of age.
The wisest policy would be first to
register those women who are willing
to undertake this kind of work, having
them indicate their previous training,
and experience, kind of farm work
they desire to take up, and length of
time they can devote to it.
.Two Weeks' Training.
Before going on the farm, the
women should if possible undertake a
course of training extended over two
weeks or more under a skilled instruc
tor. This course might be given at an
agricultural or a woman's college, agri
cultural schools, or on a farm donated
by some patriotic individual as a prac
tice farm. In some instances the
course might be under the auspices
of the extension division of the agri
cultural college. Care should be taken
that no Institutions are built up to
perform functions that might be per
formed by institutions already In
This two weeks of training would
give opportunity to eliminate those
not physically able to endure farm
labor, and also those whose mental
make-up Is such as to make them
unavailable. It would also give them
sufficient skill so that they would be
acceptable to the farmers. Such ex
perience In obtaining woman laborers
as has been had indicates that the
farmer usually Is not willing to take
woman farm workers Into his home,
and therefore the women will have tq
be organized in units and provide for
their own living quarters. This fact
restricts the types of farm enterprises
n which the women will be able to
ngage to such as are very intensive
'i character, and highly localized,
'he typos of farm enterprises of this
iid would be such ero-ix as apples,
.aches, grapes, onions, cabbage, pota
strawberries, etc. The training
i'iild be such that when the women
nt to the formers they would Xjave
at least sufficient skill to be acceptable
"to the farmer.
Ascertain if needed.
Before training the volunteers some
method should be devised for ascer
taining whether there is a demand for
the woman workers in the kind of
work they are preparing to undertake.
This information could be obtained
from the state agricultural college and
the state farm help specialist em
ployed by this department. Great
care should be exercised not to pre
pare women to go on farms before
there is an actual demand for their
After completing the training, the
women should not be sent into the
localities where they are to work until
some one has preceded them to make
arrangements for their housing and
to determine the basis of wages, etc.
In most instances the living quarters
would consist of a camping outfit, as
such quarters as they might obtain in
the community would be the least de
sirable of those in the community.
Generally It would be desirable to have
one person in the group who would do
no farm work, but would act as gen
eral chaperon and matron and would
see to the domestic phases of their
living and welfare.
Aiding the Labor Supply.
The departments of agriculture and
labor through representatives of tha
various states cooperating with the
agricultural colleges and other agen
cies are doing the following things to
aid the farm labor supply, according
to a recent statement of Secretary
Houston: (a) Making a survey of tin
farm-labor situation in each com
munity with a view to discovering
possible surpluses of labor In order to
be ready to assist in furnishing labor
wherever it is needed; (b) assisting
again in shifting labor from com
munity to community and from state
to state, as in past years; (c) pro
moting fuller co-operation among
farmers in the same community; (,d)
making available, so far as possible,
high school boys in rural districts who
have had experience in farming and
who are not normally regularly or
fully employed in farming operations;
(e making every effort to, see that
there is no obstacle in the way of the
production of a larger supply of farm
machinery and its fuller use as a
supplement to hand labor.
"Who Cares If Bones Ache?"
Thousands of women In all parts of
the country are volunteering to help
out on farms that will be short of
man power this season. The letter
which follows is typical of many
which are coming to the United
States department of agriculture. De
partment officials do not believe that
women will be required in the heavier
farming operations, but in the lighter
labor on fruit and truck farms and in
helping farm women with their tasks
there will be work for women hands.
"I want to inquire where I can vol
unteer my services in the agricultural

COLLEGE MEN HEAR DAN'ELS
No Compensation for War, He Says,
But Uplifting Connection
"Out of the tragedy of war there
can come no compensation, but there
may come out of it some things that
will lift us up and show us that no
man lovea anything he 'will not die
for," said Secretary of the Navy Jo-
sephus Daniels in an address before

youth, vouching for the high purpose,
the patriotic spirit, and the zeal of
the young man of today, who, he de
clared, are "worthy of the men who

Before the great war came, Mr. 'Dan
iels said, the general impression was
that the young men of America had
become flabby, lacked the splendid
purpose and the spirit of the young
men of '76 and '61.
"If the war had not come and quick
ened the life of the nation," he con
tinued, "and if the opportunity had
not, been thus offered them to show
the stuff of which they were made,
they might have lived and died in this
false estimate of the world.
"The youth of today," he added, "is
different from Paul Revere, only in
that Paul Revere was compelled to
carry his thrilling message on horse
back while the young men of today
carry their massages on the light
nings. They have the same courage,
the same spirit of self sacrifice, and
the same willingness to give all they
are, all they have and all they hope
to be for the cause of Christian civil
ization. They are worthy of the men
who won the liberties which now hang
in the balance."
Secretary Daniels reminded his
hearers that it is upon young men
that the world depends today. The
three hundred thousand men in the
navy, including the admirals, are, as
an average, under twenty-one years of
