The quarterly report of the National
secretary as to the organizations and
re-organizations of granges is a very
interesting document in more ways
. It shows that the splendid advance
ment of Washington and Michigan
baa had its result in the awakening
of other states, for this quarter both
states have been excelled by Oregon,
but only by a small margin for she
has only 24 granges to her credit, while
Michigan has 22 and Washington has
21. Part of these are re-organizations,
but they are of as much value as a
new organization and shows just as
much advancement, if not more.
Following these states comes Ohio
with 21, a tie with Washington, Penn
sylvania with 17, New York with 18,
lowa with 13, Kansas with 8, South
Dakota with 7, Maine, Maryland,
Vermont each with 6, Idaho Nebraska,
5 each, and others along down the
line, making a total of 186 new and 20
re-organized granges, thus placing a
great part of the work among the
progressive states as usual. Seven of
this group having 99 to their credit,
and 107 to be divided between 18 of
the other class.
The new progressive master of
South Dakota is making a splendid
showing as over his predecessor, who
was that "best organizer" of National
fame, as that "best organizer" left
the Mastership with a fewer number
of granges and members than he .had
when the State grange was organized,
after two years of office when he had
carte blano to do all the organizing
he wanted to do at the expense of the
National grange. Brother Malone,
the new master, has gone into the

Washington is, like other states, in
need of organizers who will go right
out into the field and spend time
organizing. There are several local
ities where good work might be done
had we the men to do it.
If our readers know of any locality
that could be organized we hope they
will send us all the information they
have and we will see what can be
Potatoes Will Make Fuel.
Culled potatoes will be furnishing
the power for the gang plow and the
engine on the farm before many more
years go by.
A bushel of culled potatoes is worth
titty six cents. Turned into denatur
ed alcohol they would be worth
seventy-two cents. The process of ex
tracting the alcohol is not one that
every farmer can carry on, but the

alcohol is there all right.
Alcohol is produced by the fermenta
tion of sugar. Potatoes contain starch
that may be converted into sugar by
the addition of malt and then fer
mented. The potatoes are steamed
until the starch is cooked thoroughly.
Then the malt is added. When the
starch has been converted into sugar
a yeast mash is added and the sugar
is fermented. What is left from the
potato mash can be fed to cattle. Ex
periments have proved that the ,mash
has a high feeding value.
Denatured alcohol is used for heat
ing and lighting, in chemicals, in
varnishes, in explosives and as a fuel
for engines. For some years the tax
laws were such that alcohol was too
expensive as fuel for engines. For
this reason machinery has not been
adapted for using denatured alcohol.
But it is coming into use.
The^United States Department of
agriculture has issued a bulletin
recently on this subject. Denatured
alcohol is being extracted from pota
toes in other countries with success.
A distillery for this sort of work
might be conducted by a farmers' co
operative association or as a private
enterprise. A plant with a daily
| capacity of eight thousand pounds of
potatoes would cost approximately
$12,000. This is larger, considerably,
than would be practicable for a co
operative enterprise. The plant
would have to be in a potato growing
country with good railroad facilities.
