H crniin that, once in a while, find' their
H way into even the most carefully kept
B homes. The infested bed should be
H thoroughly saturated at least twice, at
fl intervals of about a week. A third
Hf application will do no harm. If the
B pests have invaded the woodwork of
I a room, the fluid should be poured
B into all the cracks. It is instantly
B fatal to all the living insects. The
B second deluge, to be administered in
E from three days to a week, is for
B those that have hatched in the mcan-
B time. Gasoline is also a gooi gcrmi-
B cidc. If the clothes that have been
used in the sick room where a patient
H with a contagious disease has been
H nursed, arc washed in gasoline and
H pressed with a very hot iron, they
Bt will be free from- living germs.
m UNUSUAL RECIPES.
H Ice Cream Rolls.
Bf Any sort of ice cream will serve for
B this delicacy, but it must be frozen
B VCfy bard and shaped in croquette
J moulds. When ready for serving,
roll each one in pulverized macaroons,
and pour over them a hot chocolate
sauce, made by melting the quantity
of chocolate requisite for the number
of guests, to which sugar to tnstc has
been added-, and sufficient rich cream,
being particular that it may not be
thinned too much. The flavor of
vanilla will improve this sauce. Na

EXPERIMENT STATION WORK.
The growing of sugar beets is fast
gaining prominence in our state. The"
station it conducting important ex
periments, 1st with object of deter
mining the varieties best adapted to
be grown here, for yield per acre and
siUgar content. 2nd, a number of
plats arc devoted to irrigation beets
with the object of solving the follow
ing questions: 1st irrigation, viz.,
yield. 2nd, irrigation, viz., sugar con-
tent. 3rd1, the .best amount of water
I to' apply. 4th, the best time of ap
I plying the water. 5th, the best meth-
od of applying the water.
Ml -3rd, Utah has great promise of bc-
coming a sugar beet seed producing
W state. The Station is doing considcr
I . able work along this line of dcvclop
t .ing and breeding beets with a high
I . percentage of sugar and at the same
time good seed producers. Tw, set
of beets are planted each year, one
producing Elite beets for mothers the
next season and one producing seed.
Valuable strains arc being brought
out which will undoubtedly be of vast
importance to the sugar beet grow
ers in the Inter-Mountain Region.
Home grown seed as a general rule
produces beets that give a higher yield
per acre and also that have a higher
sugar content than imported seed.
We arc emphasizing yield, sugar con
tent and seed production, and arc
striving for improvements along these
This crop is one of the most im
portant in the West, and yet practical
ly no work has been done to improve
it. With the object of improving al
falfa for hay production under irri
gation and for producing seed under
arid and semi-arid conditions by
means of selection and breeding, these
experiments have been begun. We
have -eight varieties of alfalfa, namely
Turkestan, French, German, Oasis,
Sand, Arabia, Argentine and Com
mon. Superior individual plants will
be selected from each of these varie
ties on the basis of length and thick
ness of stem, number of branches,
number of leaves, upright habit of
growth, yield per acre, carlincss,
etc., for the improvement' of hay
strains. For the development of bet
ter seed strains, selections will be
made on th basjs of amount of seed
per plant, the p'ercent of pods bearing
seeds, hardiness, resistance to drought
airtPfrost, habit of growth, carlincss,
etc. From theste individual plants
other selections and hybridizations
will ,bc made from which it is hoped
in time to produce strains of alfalfa
that will produce more and better hay
than that now commonly grow, also
strains that will produce more and
surer seed than do the common alfalfa
as now grown. The best method's of
growing alfalfa for hay and for seed
w'M be determined as well as other
problems pertaining to the growing
of alfalfa seed and hay.
