JO SAVE FROZEN POTATOES
Tubers Should Be Dried Out in Oven
Will Lose None of Their
Frozen potatoes are not neces
sarily spoiled, says the Literary Di
gest, and goes on to quote the Kevue
Scientifique as follows:
"The potatoes must be dried
'that is to say, the greater part of
their water constituent must be re?
moved, to prevent decomposition,
which takes place very .rapidly after
they have thawed out.
' "Thc oven should be heated as
for baking bread. Then, when it has
reached the necessary temperature,
which is easily recognized in prac
tice by the appearance of the roof
of the oven, the potatoes are put in,
cutting np the largest. They are
spread out in a layer so that evapo
ration may 'easily take place, the
door of the oven being left open.
From time to time the mass is
stirred np with a poker to facilitate
and hasten the evaporation. When
the drying has gone far enough, the
potatoes having become hard as bits
of wood, they are withdrawn to make
room for others.
"Potatoes thus dried may be
boiled with enough water to make a
paste similar to that which they
?would have furnished if mashed in
the ordinary manner, and which will
answer very well, at least to feed
stock. . The potatoes, in fact, will be
found to have lost none of the ele
ments that give them their nutri

SELECT BETTER DAIRY COWS
Raising c? Eest Heifer Calves Will Pro

(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
The war has greatly increased th<
demand for dairy products, and it is im
portant that they be produced economl
cally. In order that the quantity o?
dairy products may be large and'tlu
production economical, more and bet
ter cows are needed. The raising OJ
all tile best heifer calves will provid'
cows enough to permit the culling ou
of all low producers.
Every owner of dairy cows should es
tablish a definite standard, and all cow.'

Whether a dairy cow should be rejectee
or retained should depend ordinaril]
on production, as shown by the mill
scales and the Babcock test.
Farmers who are too busy to tesi
their own cows may now have thli
work done for them at nominal cost b]
joining a cow-testing association. Sud

When the temp?rature is either to

are obtained. A low temperature pr<
longs the churning period unnecessi

to churn butter. It causes the grar
ulos, especially when the cream i

shot, many of which run out with th
buttermilk. The working of the bu

since they injure the quality of tl

there is no better place to live than
