ON NOTED CORNER V Hi ? f 1 iiq OF ST. QUENTIN it f f PRESERVING EGGS Agricultural College Advises Use of Water Glass to Keep ' Them Fresh. MAY AND JUNE THE BEST TIME Summer Eggs Do Not Keep at Well as Those Laid Before the Hot Days Come. Eggs should be preserved in May and June for use next winter when they are scarce and high In price, in the opinion of F. E. Fox, assistant in poultry husbandry In the Kansas State Agricultural College. There are many methods of preserv ing eggs for winter use, such as pack ing in bran or salt, or covering in lime water, but water glass ranks second only to cold storage, points out Mr. Fox. Water glass Is known chemically as sodium silicate and can be obtained at any drug store. Fresh, .thoroughly cooled eggs should be placed In a stone jar or any vessel provided It is not glass, and covered with a 10 per cent solution of water glass. The containing vessel should be stored In a cool place, preferably an odorless cellar, having a temperature of from 33 to 45 degress. The vessel should be covered with a board to exclude dirt and trash. The only at tention required Is that water be add ed occasionally, as evaporation causes the solution to become thick and Jelly like. Eggs preserved In this manner will be good for use next winter. The preserved eggs do not absorb any un desirable flavors from the water and are excellent for baking or boiling, but are not so good for frying, as the albumen or white of the egg will ab sorb water from the solution and be come watery. If the eggs are to be boiled the shell should be pierced with a needle to prevent cracking. It has been found that summer eggs do not keep as well as those laid be fore the hot days. It will make little difference in the keeping of the eggs whether they are fertile or not. Eggs will not spoil if air and heat are ex cluded. Sold Florence Bulletin. W.

The dande lion's golden crown Is slipping in Man hattan. A double drive on this mon arch of the lawns is proving effective. The state agricultural college, which Is located there, has practically forced retirement from the campus. After futile annual efforts to dig them out and spray tlfem out with various prep arations recommended as death to dan delions but harmless to grass, It was discovered that sheep consider the young dandelions a delicacy.

SPRAY THE POTATO VINES Loss by Blight Can Be Prevented by Use of Bordeaux Mixture, Says College Authorities. That It will pay Kansas farmers to insure the potato crop by spraying with Bordeaux mixture to prevent loss through blight, Is the opinion of F. S. Merrill, assistant professor of horti culture, and L. E. Melohcrs, plant pathologist, in the Kansas State Agri cultural College. Spraying will not cost 75 cents per acre. It will soon be time for the first Bpray to prevent the early blight, say these specialists. It Is best to spray and prevent this disease from getting a start. Experiment shows that one cannot cure this disease If It once gains a foothold, and therefore all possible protection should be given the plants. Spraying with Bordeaux mixture, using the 4-4-60 strength, will prevent epidemics of this disease. In order to attain the best results, sprays should be given at Intervals of a week or 10 days, beginning when the plants are six inches high. Since this disease be comes established during the earlier part of the growth of the plant, the earlier sprays are Important. The Bor deaux sprays should be continued well up to the flowering stage. If the weather continues dry up to the time when the plants begin to show the flower buds, spraying for this disease will not be so necessary. Insects such as the flea beetle; are important In spreading this disease. Since It becomes necessary to spray for Insects attacking the potato foli age, arsenate of lead at the rate of three pounds to 50 gallons of Bordeaux mixture tpakes a combination spray which will control both the plant dis eases and the biting insects. Such a combination spray should be used as often as it appears necessary to keep the plant thrifty and free from blight and eating insects. Buy Big Coal Tract.

For sale by drugglsts in all parts of the civilized world In 25 and 75 cent bottles. Adv. Orange Blossom Farms. A minor trade which has been badly hit Is the orange blossom Industry. Weddings ore simple affairs nowadays and there Is not much demand for the fragrant wljlte flowers. Practically all the orange blossom that reaches Lon don Is grown In the south of Frnnce, a few miles back from the coast line, In the sheltered valleys of the Alpes Marltlmes. There Is, In ordinary times, always a demand for the blooms, for the per fume manufacturers are ready buyers If the other market should fall. These plantations are handed on from one generation to another In the same fam ily, and there would be small encour agement for rival planters as the trees do not yield much In the way of a floral crop until they are a fair age.
