mgf COTTON GINNED TO
WS& SEPTEMBER 1
Sixty-four Thousand Bales 3Iore Than
m for Same Period Last Year?
Brehking- All Records.
Washington, September 8.?The
greatest quantity or cotton ever 511111ed
in the period prior to September
H 1 was reported by the census bureau
today, when it was announced 794,006
WF bales, counting round as half bales,
y of the growth of 1913, had been put
out from the ginneries throughout
1 the South since the beginning of the
BL ginning season.
SB The heavy ginnings for this first
& period of the season are the result
of an early maturing of the crop and
of an effort of the farmers to beat
B the boil weevil, in the opinion of cenHr
sus bureau officials.
- All States reported an increased
growing for the period over last year's
total for that time with the exception
R of Texas and XortTn Carolina. Last
V year to September 1 there had been
W ginned 5.4 per cent of the entire crop;
in 1911 the quantity was 5 per cent.
^ This compared with 730,935 bales in
1911, and 353,011 bales in 1910.
Round bales included in this report
numbered 7,584, compared with 7,434
for last year.
Sea island included 430, compared
with 232 for last year.

The simple morning-glory and plenty
of cheap whitewash will make any
place look beautiful if the grounds
and walks are well kept. In this connection,
we reprint again the famous
"government recipe" for whitewash
and would suggest that every reader
cut it out and put it away in his Bihlck
fnr roforpnpp rio-ht hptwppn thp
Old and Xew Testaments where it can
be easily located.
But before putting it there, why not
get busy with it and whitewash all
the outbuildings on your place?and
if you can't paint your house, why
whitewash it also? Now that you have
laid by your crops, the best work you
can do is to beauti::y your home. The
whitewash recipe follows:
"To make the so-called 'government
whitewash,' slake a half bushel of
lime with boiling water. Cover during
the operation to keep in the steam.

or cloth strainer and add to it a peck
of salt, which has previously been dissolved
in warm water/ Then dissolve
one pound of clean glue by soaking
it well or heating in double kettle,
and add to the whitewash, together
with three pounds of rice pounded
fine and boiled to a paste, and a half
pound of Spanish whiting. Then
place the compound in a small kettle,
place this kettle into a larger one
containing water and bring to a boil.
When the substance begins to bubble, |
remove it from the fire and add five
gallons of boiling water. Cover it up
and let stand for a few days. When
wished for use, reheat and apply while
"Coloring can be added in the proper
proportions to secure the desired
shade. Venetian red can be used. For
cream color, add yellow ocher; for
pearl or lead, add lamp black or
ivory black, for fawn, add proportionately
four pounds of umber to one
pound of black; for stone color, four
pounds ofumber to two pounds of
lamp black will give desired results."
