UNIVERSITY EXTENSION LETTER
YOUR GARDEN THIS MONTH.
Where green manuring of garden
plots has not already been done, no
time should be lost in preparing the
soil by turning under plenty of
coarse barnyard manure. A cdblc
yard of manure (16 1-2
yard manure. A cubic yard of ma
nure for eut'd square rod, or forty
tons per acre, Is the least that should
be applied. It probably would be
well to add about 10 pounds fit phos
phate to each cubic yard of manure
at the time of application. This may
be in the form of either of revert
ed or acid phosphate.
He very careful in December and
during the rainy months not to work
your land when It is too wet. Bet
tor let the weeds grow father than
ruin your soil by working it too wet.
The soil should be turned over a
62 pounds (1 bushel) lump lime or
100 lbs limoid; 40 pounds table salt;
3 pounds rice flour; 2 pounds glue;
1 pound whiting.
Sluck the lime and allow it to
tool thoroughly. Mix the other In
gredients with hot water and then
add the slacked lime or limoid. Thin
the mixture to the desired consist
ency with hot water and apply the
white wash hot. Molasses could be
added to give a color tint.
For exterior use on buildings,
fences, etc., here Is a good formu
la: 62 pounds quick lime (slack In 12
gallons hob water); pounds common
table salt, and 1 pound of zinc sul
phate dissolved in 2 gallons of boil
ing water; 2 gallons skimmilk.
Pour the salt and zinc sulphate
into the slacked lime and then add
second and third time in December the milk and mix thoroughly. Alum
and January before planting the gar
dcp. It Is good practice to plant on
raised beds nt this time of year to
insure the best drainage possible.
Cold flames and flats. A number
of garden crops which thrive better
i nlhe spring instead of now may
be started now in cold frames or in
flats placed in a protected posi
tion nnd thus gain a month or so in
the maturii g of crops. A cold frame
is a box with a glass cover, the
glass serving to hold some of the
sun's heat inside and the resulting
warmth hastening the germination
of seeds and early growth of seed
lings and cuttings.
Some o fthe crops which may be
started in this way are artichokes,
asparagus, celery, chard, cl.ayote, cu
cumbers, egg-plant, tomatoes and
others.
WHITE WASH IS GOOD PAINT
White wash is the cheapest of
all paints, and for certain purposes
it is the best. Lime, which is the
basis of white wash, makes a very
sanitary coating, and is probably
to be preferred for cellars and the
interior of the stables and other
buildings. The following directions
for making white wash are taken
from Farmers' Bulletin 474, "The
Use of Paint on the Farm," which
gives several oilier white wash for
mulas for interior and exterior use.
Write us if you want a copy of this
bulletin.
Ordinary white wash This Is made
by slacking about 10 pounds of quick
lime with 2 gallons of water.
The lime is placed in a pail and
the water poured over it, after
which the pail Is covered with an
old piece of carpet or cloth and al
lowed to stand for about an hour.
With an insufficient amount of wat
er the lime is "scorched" and not
converted into hydrate; on the oth
er hand too much water retards the
slacking by lowering the heat.
Scorched lime is generally lumpy
and transparent, hence the use of
the proper amount of water for
slacking and an after addition of
water to bring it to a brush consist
ency. It has been found by experience in
Hawaii that a very attractive tint
may be obtained in white wash by
mixing a suitable amount of com
mon cane molasses, putting in
enough until the desired tint is ob
tained. The official government formula
for a really superior white wash is
as follows:
added to a white wash prevents i
from rubbing off. Use one ounce of
alum to each gallon of white wash.
We are indebted to the Nebraska
experiment station for much of this
information.
ANOTHER WORLD RECORD
Lady Jewell, a white leghorn hen
in the state of Washington, has re
cently set a new world record in
egg laying, 335 eggs in 365 days.
The best previous record was 324
eggs by a California white leghorn
hen. This Is running pretty close
to perfect efficiency.
HAVE YOU GOT AN OLD
DE LAVAL?
The De Laval Separator Co. Is
offering a prize of $25 to the owner
of the oldest "De Laval" In each
state or territory. If you have an old
one send word to E. O. Hall & Sons,
Honolulu, stating date of purchase,
serial number and size of the ma
chine, and anything you can about
its history and its service.
POULTRY GRADES IN GEORGIA
A very Important advance has re
cently been made in Georgia in the
establishing of standard poultry
grades by the state bureau of mar
kets and agreed to by wholesalers
and dealers in the state. It is a mat
ter to which dealers and producers
in Hawaii should give attention, as
the industry is increasing consider
ably.
Here are the four grades estab
lished in Georgia on the part of
the buyers and producers:
1. Friers young chickens, 1 to
1 1-2 pounds live weight.
2. Stags young chickens, both
male and female, 2 1-2 pounds and
over, live weight.
3. Hens it was agreed that good
fat hens weighing over 4 pounds
should bring 2 cents per pound more
than hens weighing under 4 pounds
4. Roosters all which are not in
cluded in grade 1 and 2 above.
No special classification is made
for broilers because of limited de
mand. Likewise turkeys, geese nad
ducks are not classified. The higher
price offered for four pound hens
should encourage the growing of a
better type of table fowl to take
advantage o fihis premium.
The Honolulu market would be
considerably improved is soma stand
ard of grading such as given above
could be agreed upon by buyers and
sellers. We will be very glad to
receive and publish comments from
producers and dealers in Hawaii,
What do you think about it?

Milk is essential to health and
growth. ,
Milk is a muscle building food.
Milk is a bone and teth building
food; it contains an abu: dance of
calcium and phosphorous .necessary
to both bone and teeth. j
It is a protective food promoting
health because it contains three
kinds of vitamines: One of which
prevents a peculiar eye disease and
may play a part in preventing rick
ets; another of which promtes the
growth and prevents berl-berl, a
form of paralysis; and the other of
which prevents scurvy.
Milk contains proteins necessary
in the blood and is, therefore, per
ticularly valuable, especially in cas
es anemia.
Milk and its products are the foods
which a family can least afford to
do without. Increase in the cost of
milk and Its products therefore
should not be viewed unfavorably
unless it Is proved that the Increase
is out of proportion to the increaso
of other commodities of the same
and less nutritional worth.
