New Circular Outlines Totato Grow
Lexington, Ky., June 21. It is
seldom practicable to hold tubers
from the first crop of potatoes for .
seed and for this reason tbe seed
crop is usually planted from the,
middle to the latter part of July, ac
cording to Circular No. 100 which
ha j'lft 'come off the press at the
College of Agriculture and which is
intended to be a guide for Junior
agricultural club members who are
growing spuds as their club . pro
ject. The publication may be ob
tained free by writing the Experi
ment Station, Lexington.
Lice and Mites
Chicken lice which are found on
the chickens will noj only reduce the !
egg production but in some cases
will cause death. As lice multiply
very fast, a few now will mean that
the entire flock will become heavily
iniested in a short time if .treatment
is not arplied at once.
Sodium Flouride, which can be
purchased at any drug store, when
anulied properly will rid the flock of
all lice. This powder can either be
applied by using an old can , with
small holes In the top, the. same as
any other louse powder is uned, Q
by the pinch method. This method
is to take a small pinch of the pow-,
der between the fingers and apply
under the feathers in the following
places in the fluff Just beneath the
vent, under each wing, at the base of
the neck, and at the base ot the tart.
It is very important that every chick
en cn the farm be treated as one left
untreated will soon cause the entire
flocks to become infested again.
MiteH which are found on the roosts
and in the cracks and crevices of the
house can be gotten rid of my spray
ing the Interior of the house with
lime sulphur or some good eresol
dip. These dips should be mixed ac
cording to the directions given on the
purknge. It is very important that
the spray reaches-all the cracks and
devices in the house and it is better
to remove the nests and roost poles
and spray them thoroughly.
Keep the Flle Off the Cows
A good fly spray can be made from
4 Mi quarts coal tar dip, 4 Va quarts
fish oil, 3 quarts coal oil, 3 quarts
whale oil, and 1V4 quarts oil of tar.
Dissolve 3 lbs. laundry soap In
water, add tbe ingredients of the
spray and bring the whole up to 30
gallons with lukewarm soft water.
This spray will keep off the flies and
prevent the coats of the animals
from becoming harsh.
The cows should be sprayed twice
a day In tbe morning after milking
and In the afternoon when in tbe

rrrsrrre Ekr in Water Glass
Eggs are cheap now, but will no
doubt sell tor a good price next win
ter. It seems that it would be a
good proposition to preserve eggs
now for next w titer's use. Tbe fol
lowing are the steps for preserving
eggs in water glass:
(1) Select a 6-gallon crock and
clean it thoroughly, after which it
should be scalded and allowed to
(2) Heat a quantity of water to
the boilinc Dolnt and allow it to
(3) When cool, measure out nine
quarts of water, place it in the crock
and add one quart of sodium silicate,
water glass, stirring the mixture
(4) The eggs should be placed in
the solution. If sufficient eggs are
not obtainable when the solution is
first made, additional, eggs may be
added from time to time. Be very
careful to allow at least two Inches
of the eolution to cover the eggs at
(5) Place the crock containing
tbe preserved eggs in . a cool, dry
place, well covered to prevent
evaporation. Waxed paper covered
over and tied around the top of the
crock will answer this purpose.
Fresh, clean eggs, properly pre
served, can be used satisfactorily for
all purposes in cooking and for the
table. When eggs preserved In water
glass are to be boiled, a small hole
should be made in the shell with
a pin at the lartfe end before placing
tixfcov in the water. This is done to
allow the air in the egg to escape
when heated so as to prevent crack-

United States Senator Albert J.

patch tc the Fresno Republican from

i The reason given for the r""l

Mr. Edsel B.v

erlal costs which
er with increased
mand for Ford cars, particularly during the past three months permitting
t maximum production, have made another Nnrlce reduction possible lm
. mediately. s : - ,
"Ford business for April and May 1021 was greater by 66,633 cars
and trucks than for 'the same two months in J 9 20; in fact, the demand
has been even greater than the supply, so that our output baa been limit
ed, not by unfilled orders but by manufacturing facilities,
unfilled orders but bymaunfacturlng facilities.
"During May we produced iOJ,424 Ford cars and trucks for sale In
the United States alone the. biggest month In the history of our com
pany and oo.r'factoriea and assembly plants are now working on a 4000
car daily schedule for June. ,, . , '
"The Fprdson tractor is etill being sold at less than the cost tovpro
dnce on account of the recent big price reductions, and it is impossible,
therefore, to make anyfurther cut in the price of the tractor."
Can. you afford to go without a car any longer when Fords are sell
ing at these new Ipw prices? There is no reason now why you should
delay purchasing a Ford car, Ford truck, or Fordson tractor.
We will gladly advise you concerning the delivery of a Fordson
tractor or the particular, type of car in which you are interested. Just
