The fsfmer of Kentucky have

The increase in quality of lambs on frm 0f (food roads,
the Louisville market has been very
noted. This is not only true or mose
lambs that have been graded as sec
onds and thirds but also of top lambs.,
I think I could safely say that in the
past ten years quality has increased,
around 50 percent and a great part
of this increase has been noticed in ,
the receipts here this season and last,
The greatest factor in the upbuild
ing of quality ts the cold hard fact of j
Hollars and cents. The producer is
beginning to realite tb,at he is stand

better class of lambs. He has learn-

8AVINO THE FALL VEGETABLES
i The farm wife and the city woman
who has her little vegetable garden
know the economic value of putting
away for the unproductive months
everything from the summer that can
possibly be kept without spoiling. In
the southern states, one of the favor
ite vegetables is the sweet potato
This would be, seemingly, a food well
', adapted to storing, and yet efforts
to do so have been often very unsuc-
cessful, sometimes ending in total
loss. To correct this condition,, the
United States Department of Agri
culture has recently conducted a er
' ies of experiments to find out why
sweet potatoes rot in storage and un
' Her what conditions this waste could
j be prevented. The facta they have
discovered shoujd be helpful, not only
to the farmer, but to the amateur
vegetable garden enthusiast, and to
the farsighted housekeeper. Hero

Breeders' organizations have donc(
much to improve the quality among
the breeders, but very little to im-
prove the farm flocks where it is s ,
badly needed. I can see a .very im-
portant place for 'the new Kentucky
Livestock Improvement Association
, as it can accomplish much good.
Livestock commission merchant to!
years have been urging shippers to
buy better ewes and rams. The
packers have done their part in paying
for quality. j
Eternal vigilance is the price of
success, and just so long as the above ,
agencies keep up the good work we
shall go steadily forward; unless we
do, we shall repeat the history of
breeding in Kentucky. Only a few
years ago Kentucky "headed the list
of fine livestock, but Old Man Indo-'
lunce got us and we let our quality
run very low. The extremely high
prices for pure-breds was probably
me of the greatest causes for thia
dropping off of quality, but the price
of pure-bred animals is now in reach
of every one and this should not be
an excuse. The American taste
steadily calling for quality in every
thing, and it behooves us to give
the market what it wants. The de
mand for quality, is well borne out by ,
the price of good top lambs which
sold both this and last year from 1
to 7 cents per pound over the ser
onds. In other words, the second?
are bringing just about one-half the
price of the tops. Some may think
that this spread in price !s too much
and that the seconds are selling too
cheap, but the truth is that they are
harder to sell than the tops. If they !
were proving cheap to the packers
there would be more competition for
them. The packer outlet is for good
stuff and they want nothing else. In
the last several seasons, since our ,
quality is improving, new buyers for
our fancy lambs are showing up on
the market. i
Along this line I might add that,
the production of Bpring lamba in
Kentucky could be increased several
fold and it would have no appreci
able effect on the general price of.
food levels such as a large crop of
hogs over the entire United States,'
which would naturally lower the
general hog market. Our scope of
production ia too small to have such
an effect. Then, too, Kentucky!
spring lambs come at a season1 when;
there Is practically no competition
from other sources. When the dayj
conies that our lambs are docked and
castrated the quality tiptop in other I
words the product standardized :
you will see Kentucky spring lamb!
onevery menu in the United State
and we will have an unlimited out
put for our Iambi.
More and better aheep for Madi

context, directly or Implied, says any
thing about prohibition a we under
stand the use of the word. However,
when Messiah kIikII reign upon the
earth tlie rum truffle with all other
iniquitous practices will be iibolislwd.
I. Messiah's Commission (v. 1).
Me was appointed by the Url.
(iod s plan for the world Is a time of
peace and blearing.
II. Messiah's Program (w. 1, J).
MexKiiih'M program is twofold: to
'prtM-liiiin the acceptable enr of the
l.onl. iind the luy of vengeance of
our Cod." Tlie careful readitiK of

llie'ioiniuii. in Iaiah Cl :2. ills" first
coming opened up the day of "grace
and the acceptable year of the Lord,"
and His second ing "ill usher in
"the day of vengeance of our lel."
()l Thess. 1:7 1; ef. Mai. :t:l-H).
1. Proclaiming the Acceptable Year
of the Lord (vv. 1. '.'). In His ministry
of grace He preached (1) "good tid
ings to tlie meek." "Meek'' here
mentis not only a grace, but a condi
tion, that is, those In mverty and
allllction. (J) "Hind up the broken
hearted." "Bind up" signifies heuling
(3) "Liberty to the captives." The
figure of deliverance from the Baby
lonian captivity is usefl to describe
deliverance from sin and death (Het.
2:1.1). (4) 'opening of the prison to
llieiu that are bound." .Messiah's
work was to give deliverance to those
who vere enslaved by the conse
iiueiices of their sins. (5) "The ae.
ceptuble year of ttie Lord." This
means a spix e of time in which tio I
would accept all who repent of their
sitm and come to Him.
2. l'rochiiiniiig the ila. of vengeance
of tSod v. 2). While the day of mercy
is lengthened out, the time of Judg
ment will surely come. Tlie day of
vengeance will break upon the world
when tlie Lord shall be revealed from
heaven (II Thess. 1:7-10). The period
of mercy is called "year," while tlie
period of veugeunce is called "day,"
showing that the period of mercy Is
much longer than the period of wrath.
III. The Blessings of Messiah's
Kingdom (vv. -).
1. "Comfort all that mourn" (v. 2).
The day of vengeance will bring sor
row to muiiy, but they shall l.e com
forted when they shall see the King
on the throne.
2. "(ilve unto them beauty for
ashes" (v. 3). This peculiarly applies
3. "tMl of Joy for Mourning" (v. 3).
Israel has been mourning for cen
turies. When the Messiah shall reign
as King they shall he glvd.
4. "liurinent of I'ralse for. the Spirit
of lleuvlness" (v. Sf. Instead of
wearing the symbol of the burden of
sin they shall Is clothed so as to In
dicate their JofiilueM.
0. "Culled Trees of Righteousness"
(V. 3). These trees represent Israel
as planted by id and bearlug fruit,
not as rodv Lowed down with sor
row. 6. "They Shall tfulld the Old
Wastes" (v. 41 Israel shall return
to their own land and shall rebuild
the city of Jerusalem and the cities
f Judah which la waste.
T. "Si rangers Khali Stand and Feed
Tour Flocks" (v. .'.). In the time of

are the points to be remembered:
1. With careful handling It is pos
sible to store and keep sweet potatoes
for four months with losses as low
as 7.M2 per cent from shrinkage and
decay. With ordinary commercial
handling these losses run as high as
20.40 per cent and average 10 per
2. Sweet potatoes stored In houses
lose from .5 per cent to 2 per cent
from decay, while like sorts stored in
banks and pits show a loss of from
4 to 40 per rent.
3. Sweet potatoes injured in har
vesting and handling lose 28.13 pe"
rent by shrinkage, and stork that is
carefully handled loses 13.83 percent.
4. Sweet potatoes sorted from tima
to time during the storage period
show greater losses from decay than
those not sorted.
r.. To lose the minimum weight by
shrinkage, sweet potatoes should be
stored at a temperature of 60 degrees
to 6.1 degrees F.
