LOCAL SHOP BUILDING
PATENT DITCH DIGGER
E. B. Hawkins is having built at
the Jennings & Trimble blacksmith
shop on J street a ditcher and loader
which promises to be a great im
provement over anything In the mar
ket. Inasmuch as the completed ma
chine can be sold at small percent
age ot the price of the more ponder
ous affairs. This machine, the pat
ent for which wea granted to Mr.
Hawkins in July, 1917, can be oper
ated by one man and two horses
and is capable of handling 60 to 80
yards in eight hours. Without toss
of time the dirt handled may be
loaded on wagons.
The demonstration machine is in
tended to dig a ditch three feet
wide. The ground is to be first
plowed to loosen the soil and then
the digger 4s put on the soft dirt
and hauled by a team of horses.
When the scoop is filled the team is
released by a lever and the horses
then hoist the scoop to a height suf
ficient to dump into a wagon or
over a bank. By an Ingenious ar
rangement the scoop as It is elevat
ed is turned and tilted so as to dump
the dirt to one side. Tt can be used
as a loader and will load a wagon
In 10 minutes.
The demonstration machine will
be completed in another week or 10
days and Mr. Hawkins proposes to
have a public demonstration.

Avoid Unprofitable Moods.
Angry moods and "grouches" and
their twin sisters, "grudges," serve ab
solutely no purpose. If some one
hurts or wounds ns generously forget
It Time heals the deepest cuts and
nikkes us brnver end wiser for the
experience. Let ns love life and Its
worth-while things and avoid all un
profitable moods. Otherwise happi
ness will never come our way, and If
we search f or It, It will flee from ns
like a phantom, for after all It is the
state of our mind.
