greatly dec ' : ;o value of ta«.
crop, accouiri. io A. P. K'dder. pro
fessor of agronomy, Louisiana State
University. Louisiana's sweet pota
to crop for this ytar is estimated to
be 5.000.000 bushels, and «towers
would do weil to talc* precautions
against undue losâea through careless
handling.
Some of the things to be observed
are as follows :
1. Potatoes should be thoroughly
, mature before bring harvested.
1 2. They should be handled carcful
; |y to prevent bruises, as such places
! cause rot very quickly,
j 3. Injured potatoes should not be
stored with sound ones.
4. The potatoes should be sub
jected to a temperature of 85 to 95
degrees Fahrenheit as soon as they
tent reduced to 10 per cent or less.
5 . Potatoes should be stored In a
veil built house, where the temper
ature can be kept uniform. This will
save a large per cent of aP good
sound potatoes, while the old bank
method usually causes a loss of 23
to 50 per cent. Old tenant houses
can often be utilised for that purpose.

DISPOSE OF THE
UNPROFITABLE HEN
Culling Should Be Done Frequently
and Thoroughly.
After hens reach a certain «ge, de-'
pending upon the way th*y have
bnea handled, they can no longer pro
duce egge profitably. Those which
lire forced for heavy egg production
by fhe ! liberal use of stimulants will;
roach pits stage quicker than the oth
1 ers. Whenever this stage is reached
the nena should be marketed as soon
aa paesible.
A pretty safe rule to follow with
♦he average flocks which have not
been treated with stimulants is ue
follows: Dispose of heas of the light,
active breeds, such as Leghorns and
j active breeds, such as Leghorns and
; Ancona«, as soon as they have passed ;
through their th * r ^ laying season; ;
j dispose of ail the medium weignt ;
blde^?. such as Plymouth Rocks, .
(Rhede Isias? Rfi ds, Wyandotte« and >
; Drpignton? as M tbff have pas.^ i
led through two laying aeas-ons. A* j
( fhe «amc time, discard al! yôtmçyr
bens which have baggy abdomens,
.which baYe a tendency to nUty over r
'Xat, or jrhich lack health or vigor 1«
any way.
The cullin* should be done fre.
guently and thoroughly. It rarerly
pays to hold an old or a w-?ak bird
1 for a better market. The quicker
I they are sold the better. The average
Hock should be thoroughly culled at
Jeast once a month. Such practice
rill not materially reduce the output
I fif the flock, but, on the other hand,
1 will greatly increase the profits by
reducing the required amount of high
priced feed and labor.—A. F. Rolf, j

There Is No Neeeertty For the Louis
iana Farmer To Plant Seed of
Unknown Value.
Öre o? the essential features of
profitable crop production is the use
Of good reed. The G- mcr of Louis
iana has often suffered inadequate
returns and, no doubt, In some in
stances complete crop failure ov^ing
to the use of seed of inferior grade,
Not only that, farm äced often con
tain obnoxious weed steed which, If
sown, will require time and money
to eradicate. These resulting weeds
may in sonn ea.s>*s effect a permanent
injury to the farm.
There Is no necessity for the Louls
. lana farmer to plant seed of unknown
value. A seed testing labotatoiy Is
\ maintained at the Experiment. Sta
tion of the Louisiana State Univer
I sity lor the purpose of furnishing in
formation to fatmers and seedsmen

j The seed laboratory is in charge of
I an expert seed analyst ar.d is well
j equipped for rapid and accurate tests
j as to purity and germination. A pur
ity test can be mad" r>rd the report
returned almost immediately. A ger
nr'natlon test requires five days or
icng.-r, depending up-n the kind of
-•ul seed tested.
To secure a sample, take three or
four tnblespoonfuls of elover or
grass seed or ten or twelve tahlo
spoonfuls of larger seeds. The sam
ple must represent accurately the
bulk from which it is taken. To ob
tain a representative r-amnle, handfuls
of seed should be taken at random
from the top, middle and bottom ot
the sack and. after thoroughly mixing
these handfuls, take the samples tor

Send the samples to the Seed Lit

14-DAY DIPPING KEANS
PROMPT ERADICATION
THE STATe CAN BE MADE EN
TIRELY TICK-FR EE IN ONS
SEA80N.
EVERYONE MUST CO-OPERATE
Loiiielarw Is the Only State Using
the Twenty-one Day Dipping
Periods.
äome of the questions tfiost fre
quently asked on tick eradication are
answered below by ;>r. W. H. Dairym
ple, of tiie Department of Veterinary
Science, Louisiana State University :
Why lb it necessary to dip cattlé
every 14 day6 during the ueasên tq
get rid Of the ticks?
Answer. During tfa' warm season
of the year, the average time requir
ed fay the tick to develop, troiu the
small larval or seed tick, after at
taching to cattle, until ihe large fe
male tick matures ai.d dror« to the
ground to lay her eqg, is about
days. Rut whU? 22 days may be the
average, many ticks mature earlier
than that time. Consequently it has
been found that the 21-day dipping
period? do not catch the earlier-ma
turing ticks, which drop off and keep
on making more tick?, thereby delay
ing the final results. On the other
hand, by dipping cattle every 14 days,
all of the ticks that become attached
to them in the intervals are killed,
because none of them mature and
drop off before 14 days.
Hew ha« this information been ob
tained?
Answer. It has been observed ny
those engaged In the work of tick
eradication that, towards the end ot
the season, ur,de,r the 21-day method,
there ' always s number of cattle,
r.r bet 1s, still remaining tick le tested.
While with 14 day dipping there may
be nr ?, or only very few, with ticks
: on them.
Then the dipping periods are bosed

j upen the time required for the ticks

j
'
to develop on tho cattle and fall off?
! Answer. Precisely ?o. The adop
■ tion of the 14 day periods is to do
! rtroy all of the ticks that have bo
, come attached to the cattle ln the in
tervals between dippings, without any
of them haring dropped off.
I Hew long, relatively, will It take to
clttn a pr.rieh, cr eectlon, of ticks un*
£>i the 14-day and 21-day dipping po
: r ?
Answer. With the full co-op*rt
tion of everyone interested, the licks
may be cleaned up in one season un
d'r the 14 day periods; while under
the 2> dry periods it may take two
or three or more seasons, as has been
the esse in a number of parishes. |
Do ticke have any effect on milk
production?
Answer. Federal experts hare test
< .1 this question, and they report that
r attic which have bem freed ot ticks
►ave given, an irer—aed milk pro
1 oc' ;! on of from 15 to 42 per cent, de
• vvling on hew yearly they had pre
Viom'v i x. If we should
?t'lke nn avorare 0 ? 26 per cent, It
would mean to at the dairyman who
continued ro tot'd ticks on hif cows
, vas tn 5 '-wi g '> ay an equivalent of
one bucketful of milk out <ti owe rf
