Often large roomy boxes can b

that Ii ever used is a large sugar bprre:

last spring with the veryv be:;t of suc

out attracted a turkey and she laid her
eggs and hatched1 her bro>d therein.
The barrels serve an excllent nar

are not onliy cheaip and easy to get,
Ibut owing to their shape make an
excellent protection for the turkey not
only from cold winds and r."ins, bat
hot days as wvell. Very often one
finds t wo, and some-times even three

How to Prevent Scabs in rotatoes.
This is a germ disease caused by A
minute plant growing upon the sur

from one crop to another by spores
upon the seed crop. If these spores
can be destroyed on the seed the new
crop of potatoes will be practically

.The length of time that tho potato
seed should be immersed has not been
fully determined, but an hour and a
half is usually sufticent to kill the
majority of tihe spores. Place the
seed in a loosely woven coff'ee sack.
If the potatoes are dirty they~ should
1be washed before being treated. The
solution corrodes alH metal and there
foemust be placed in a wooden vessel,
such as a large barrel or a hogshead.
Allow the potatoes to soak the re
quired lengi,h of time, then take thf
out and spread where they will dry
quiichiy. Tiho germinating power of
usprouted potatocs is not injured in
tthe least by this treatmeni. In some
Indiana tests it was found that even a
half hour's treatment is very eflicient;
keeping the tubes in the solution six
hours is unnecessary. If the rota
toes re unfortunately sprouted he

they 11 remain in the solution must

Cut the potatoes after they havo
dried and plant at once in gon

will not cxceed fifty *cents per acre
and the labor and-troub!e are not suf
iicient to he.considered serious ob

bean found fully satisfactory. This

escape the disease. Of course a

moments to nearly 100 degrees. Plant
upon a naturally well-drained soil and
hill up well around the plants at the
last plowing. If the crop has been
infested during the summer, rake and
b:trai the vies as so'n as possible.

coated with gold in proportion of,2 per
cent. of gold to the weight of sil.r to

perfcoeied the rods are about one and
three-fourths inches in diameter by two
feet six inches long and weigh about
400 ounces each. The two metals are
then drawn dowd together, first
through steel dies and afterward
through drilled rubles or diamonds.
The process of dilling the gems is kept

however, be learned from the fact- that
the holes cannot be discerned by the

For the manufacture of silver and
