GIVE FARMERS §50-A-DAY IDEA Agricultural College Experts Have Bright Scheme, Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 24.—Agricultural college experts here are advising farmers to ride the disk if they would add $50 a day to their incomes. A test disclosed that stubble land disked July 15 and then plowed seven inches deep August 15 yielded three and a half more bushels of wheat to the acre than fields not so treated. Average wheat price has been $1, and since a farmer can dis*k 15 acres a day or more, his income might jump according to the days he spent on the implement.—Detroit Free Press.

Parsons & Dodge and Herman Heininger. Suffer Heavy Losses. At about nine o'clock Tuesday morning the garage of Parsons & Dodge was destroyed by fire, caused by the explosion of an acetylene tank located in the rear room of the long building, which instantly ignited the oily floors, and with the acetylene gas, the entire rear of the building was a roaring furnace in. a very few minutes. Ed. Harper, mechanic in the work room, lighted a match to start the acetylene torch, which instantly seemed to backfire with an explosion which was heard some distance. Harper dropped to the floor and under dense smoke and debris crawled* out of the building, his face slightly burned. The local fire department lost no time in getting to the scene and soon had the chemical tanks and two lines of hose from the water mains doing full duty, but the flames had gained such headway that it took some minutes before any effect was realized. Several lines of hose from nearby dwellings were also brought into use. The frame"** storehouse east of the garage took fire and for a time destruction for many other buildings farther on seemed almost certain, but prompt action saved them. The fire department at Bridgewater made a quick run here, as did a detachment from Ann Arbor, but the fire was practically under control when they arrived. The Ypsilanti fire department was stalled by a broken engine when about five miles east of town and unable to get here. It was most fortunate that the fire did not reach the filling station tanks. There were eleven cars in the garage, two demonstrators, and several others belonging to the firm; one owned by Herman Heininger, a sedan belonging to Ed. Heininger; also a new corn binder, manure spreader, two trucks and a large amount of various accessories for autos and farm machinery. A part of the office equipment was saved, although badly drenched and smoked. The loss to the firm is quite large, with partial insurance. The building is owned by Herman Heininger and aside from the side walls little remains except the front, the roof in places simply hanging.

One of the causes of barn fires during the haying season, says the research department of the National Association of Farm Equipment Manufacturers, is a lack of ventilation in. the mow. Hay which is put into the barn damp or green, heats and forms combustible gases. If these gases are quickly removed by a ventilation system such as that supplied by a cupola on the barn, the danger of spontaneous combustion is lessened. Three large barns were recently destroyed by fire near Hastings, Minnesota, in one week. The cause in each case was given as spontaneous combustion, resulting from heated hay. None of the barns was equipped with cupolas. The United States Department of Agriculture offers three, recommendations for the "prevention of spontaneous combustion:' First, mowing only properly cured hay;.second, the use of salt on green hay and third, free ventilation after storage. Farmers have found that it is a mistake to dig into hay which starts heating in the barn and to admit air to the heated portion. It is wiser to leave the surface unmolested. , Aviation Gasoline for lamps and stoves. Sanford Hardware Co. Nearly new Buick sedan in excellent condition. Wiedman Auto Co.
