Page 102 - ... the remainder being left for later occasions. These sacks will burn with a smoldering fire for several hours. The amount of heat which is set free by burning one sack of manure weighing about 50 pounds, and condensing the vapor near the surface, would be sufficient to raise the temperature 20 in a space 75 feet square and 25 feet deep. If one-fourth of this heat remained within the region needing protection, which seems to be a reasonable estimate, ample protection would be obtained for almost...

METHODS OF FROST PREVENTION. From a study of the foregoing principles under which frost forms, it would seem that there would be the greatest probability of success in preventing frost or diminishing its severity by working along the following lines : First — Diminishing the radiation of heat.

Page 100 - The condensation of enough vapor to make a pint of water will evolve enough heat to raise more than five pints of water from the freezing to the boiling point. All this heat must be lost by radiation in order that the formation of dew may proceed or the temperature fall. It is, therefore, evident that when condensation begins, the hoat evolved by this means practically prevents further cooling.
Page 103 - ... heaped over with wet manure. Dirt is then thrown on the wagon beds to protect them, and pots of burning tar are set underneath the straw roof. A barrel of water on the wagon is used to keep the straw wet. The wagons are driven about and do the best work, as they can go wherever the most needed. The smoke and vapor are carried to the rear as the wagon moves, and, being carried at once out of the rising hent.
