Improper methods of harvesting
and storing sweet potatoes are ro
epon.-dbla for largo losses which
greatly decrease the value of tar
crop, according to A. F. Kidder, pro
feasor of agronomy, Louisiana State
University. Louisiana's sweet pota
to crop for this year i3 estimated to
be 5,000,000 bushels, and growers
i would do well to take precautions
against undue losses through careless
, handling.
' Some of the things to be observed
' axe aa follows:
i 1. Potatoes should be thoroughly
mature before being harvested.
1 I. They should be handled careful
If to prevent bruises, as such places
Cause rot very quickly.
3. Injured potatoes should not be
Stored with sound ones
g The potatoes should be sub
degrees Fahrenheit as soon as they
Ere put away, and the moisture coû
tant reduced to 10 per cent or less.
5. "Potatoes should be stored in a
well built house, where the temper
ature can be kept uniform. This will
»are a large per cent of all good
sound potatoes, while the old bank
method u»ually cause« a loss of 23
to 50 per cent. Old tenant houses
ran often be utilized for that purpose.
Jscted to a temperature of 85 to 95
Culling Should Be Done Frequently
and Thoroughly.
After hen» reach a certain age, de
pending upon the way they have
been handled, they can no longer pro
duce eggs profitably. Tho»e which
are forced for heavy egg production
by the liberal use of stimulants will
Teach this stage quicker than the oth
ers. Whenever this stage is reached
The hens should be marketed as soon
as possible.
A pretty safe rule to follow with
the average flocks which have not
boea treated with stimulants Is as
follows: Dispose of hens of the light,
activé breeds, such aa Leghorns and
. . . .
Anconas, as soon as they have passed f
through their third laying season;
! and dispose of all the medium weight
breeds, such as Plymouth Rocks,
, Rhode Island Reds, Wyandottes and
Drplgntonaa. soon as they have paw- ,
ed through two laying seasons. At
the same time, discard all younger
hens which have baggy abdomens,
which have a tendency to stay over
lap or which lack health or vigor in
any way.
The culling should be done fre
(uently and thoroughly. It rarerly |
pays to hold an old or a weak bird
for a better market. The quicker ,
they are sold the better. The average ,
fiock should be thoroughly culled at j
Jeeat once a month. Such practice
pill not materially reduce the output
pf the flock, but, on the other hand,
will greatly Increase the profits by
fcduolng the required amount of hlgh
nrlced feed and labor.—A. F. Rolt

sion, Louisiana State University,

There le No Necessity For the Louie
iana Farmer To Plant Seed of
Unknown Value.
One of Hie essential feature» ef
piofitable crop production is the use
0 : good so«d. The farmer of Louis
iana has often suffered inadequate
returns and. no doubt. In soin» In
stances complete crop failure owing
to the use of seed of Inferior grade.
Not only t lia t. farm seed often con
tain obnoxious weed seed which, if
sown, will require time and money
to eradicate. These resulting we< d3
may in some cases effect a permanent
Injury to the farm.
j There is no necessity for the Louis
iana farmer to plant seed of unknown
value. A seed testing laboratoiy is
maintained at tho Experiment Sta
tion of the Louisiana State Univer
sity for the purpose of furnishing in
formation to farmers end seedsmen
as the quality of commercial agricul
tural seeds. It enables the prospeo
tlve buyer to obtain samples of seed
from the seedsmen or grower and
have them tested before purchasing.
! The seed laboratory Is in chaige of
en expert seed analyst and is well
' equipped for rapid and aecuntf» testa
as to purity end germination. A pur
ity test can be made and the report
returned almost Immediately. A ger
mination test requires five days or
longer, depending upon the kind of
' ?ut seed tested.
! To secure a sample, take throe or
four tables pocnfula of clover or
! grass seed or ten or twelve table
(spoonfuls of larger seeds The sam
ple must represent accurately the
, bulk from which it is taken. To ob
! tain a representative sample, handfuls
j of seed should be taken at random
from the top, middle and bottom of
! the sack and, after thoroughly mixing
j these handfuls, take the sample« for
Send the samples to the Seed La-

Louisiana le the Only ttals Uetng
the Twenty-ens Day Dipping
0ome of the qweetlone Meet fre
quently asked os tick eredtoetion are
.answered below by Dr. W. H. Dalryrn
pie, of the Department < f Veterinary
Science, Louisiana Statf University:
Why 1s It necessary to dip cattle
every 14 da/e during the season to
get rid of the tlcks7
Answer. During the warm season
of the year, the average time requir
ed by the. tick to develop, from thv
small larval, or seed tick, after at
tfoiling to cr.ttlo. until the large fe
male tick mature* and drops to the
ground to lay her egg. Is about U
days. But while 22 days may be the
average, many ticks mature earlier
than that time. Consequently It has
been found that the 21-day dipping
periods do not catch the earlier-ma
turing ticks, which drop off and keep
on m u .k'og more ticks, thereby delay
ing the final results. On the other
hand, by dipping cattle every 14 days,
all of tlv- ticks that become atfciched
to them In the Intervals are killed,
because none of them mature and
drop off before 14 dayc.
How has this Information bean ob
Answer. It has been observed by
thoge engaged in the work of tick
eradication that, towards tho end of
th# season, under tho "1-day method,
there are always e nu nber of cattle,
or herds, Btill remain!; r Hek-lnfssted.
While with 14 day dipping tkere t av
be none, or only very fsw, with tloka
on them.
Then the dipping periods are besed
upen the tint# required for the ticks
to develop on tho cattle and fall sdf?
Answer. Preolaely so. The adop
tion of the 14slay periods L to de
stroy all of the ticks that have be
come attached to the cattle In th# In
tervals between dippings, without any
ef them having dropped off.
Hew long, relatively, will it take te
clean s parish, or section, ef ticks we
der the 14-day and 21-day dipping pe
Answer. With the full co-opera
tion of everyone lntereeted, the ticks
luay be cleaned up tn one season ue*
der the 14-day periods; while under
the tl day periods It may take two
or three or more seasons, as has been
the case in a number ef parishes.
Do ticks have any effect en naUk
9ry »„
; catt|e7
ThPy prevent develop
n<*nt. because a great deal of the
: ^ fepd and t1lat
should be user] to nourish the arimnl.
Answer. Federal experts have test
ed this qti*etlon, and they report that
cattle which hare been freed o? ticks
have given on increased milk pro
duction of from 18 to 48 per cent, de
pending on how grossly they had pre
viously been Infest**!. If we should
strike an average of 26 per cent, it
would mean that the dairyman who
oonttnued to feed ticks on 11a cows
was throwing away an equivalent of
one bucketful of mi'.k out of every
four which his cows would produce
under tick-freedom.
What effect do t.ie tlcka have. If
the development of bs«f
Is appropriated by the ticks, and
benefit of the feed is, therefore, lost
to the animal.
Are all the other ststsa dipping
their cattle every 14 days?
i | Anewjr. Y-'o. Some of them
j I adopted the M »lav periods at the
' 1 beginning of th* work, and others !
j ! boglnning of th* -"Ork, and others
that had commenced with the 21 day«!
have since abaudonr-d vha !ot:g*r In -1 j

terrais for the 14 4av method, as ths i
results bave h*«!» fout»J so much (
more satisfactory.

the cattle aro dipped in th* s'andxrd :
arssrical solution every i4 grys for ; (

Answer. You. It is 't f n* in ;

able to accomplish It sctHfau.ml'y It j,

of everyone concerusd anc interested j
In the work.
When once the state la tick-free!
will there be any danger of rSehr»*-,
Answer. None. The föderal gov
srnment and the state will see tbat ; 1
rigid quarantine Is maintained against •
ihe introduction of any tlck-infested
cattle. That Is provided fur now in
Act No. 18 of the General Assembly
»f 1910, and by federal regulation.
What la a condition of tick-freedom
expected to mean to the state?
Answer. It will mean that Louis
