SEND POTATOES TO MARKET
iCrop 8hould Bo Graded and Packed
in Barrels as Soon as Possible
Potatoes, although one of tho most
Important of our truck crops, are
usually badly handled by the average
grower. Instead of being sent to
market in bulk by the wagon load, potatoes
should bo graded and packed in
toarrois. The packing should bo done
as soon as poslble after they are dug.

All this Is very annoying to those

and go to some expense in got,tlng

ioccur, and does occur, whero ample

[to keep the soil in fertile condition.
It is in fact a kind of noil sickness
fwhich ordinary manure cannot overcome,
but actually aggravates.

gardens for (he simple reason that the
ilarger area gives a much wider range

LIGHTNING RODS ARE CHEAP
It Is Mistaken Idea to Think That

?vYirc rcnco uangcr.
It Is ft mistake to believe thftt
lightning rods do not protect buildings.
They do when properly put up
and no farmer can afford to go without
them unless he chooses to carry
his own insurance. In Any case the
cost of lightning rods is so small compared
to the protection they give that
li is doubtful whether it is good i)ollcy
to take any risks without them.
