i. Home Storage. (Irish potatoes.) Irish potatoes can be stored In jilts, root cellars, or above-ground, frost-proof storago warehouses. Small quantities, or oven carload lot3 of potatoes arc often placed In pits in the field when other storage facili ties are not available. Immature po tatoes can not be successfully stored for any considerable period even In the of storages, and should never be pitted or burled. Well matured tubers of either early or late sorts, if sound and In a dormant condition upon the advent of freezing weather in the autumn, may bo kept until re quired for table use of for planting by pitting, storing In potato cellars, of which there are many designs, or in above-ground, frost-proof build ings. The commercial storage of Irish potatoes Is discussed in Farm ers' Bulletin S47, Potato Storage and Storage Houses. Sweet Potatoes. Sweet potatoes . should be thoroughly matured before harvest ing, dug while the ground is dry, carefully handled, and thoroughly cured by holding them at a tempera ture of SO to to So J for a week or 10 days after harvesting. After this they should be stored in a place where the temperature remains In the neighborhood of 55 F. Such a location is usually near the furnace in a cellar, or near the furnace chim ney on the second floor of the house they mature, and placed in a warm, dry place until dry enough to shell. Navy beans and kidney beans are usually harvested when n maximum of pods open and tho vines cured like hay, after which thoy are threshed or shelled. Peas aro handled in the same way as navy beans. After the beans and peas are threshed or shell ed they should be placed in bags and hung in some dry place, such as n closet or attic. Dried corn, dried npples, peaches, apricots, raspberries, etc., may be stored in the same manner. All dried products should be protected against insects, rodents and dirt. A round of Honey. When you cat a spoonful of honey you have very little idea as to the amount of work and travel necess ary to produce it. To make a pound of clover honey, bees must take the nectar from sixty-two thousand clov er blossoms; and to do this requires two million seven hundred and fifty thousand visits 'to the blossoms by the bees. In other words, In order to collect enough nectar to make ono pound of honey, a bee must go from hive to flower and back again two million seven hundred and fifty thousand times. Then, when you think how far these bees somtimes fly in search of these clover fields, often one or two miles distant from tho hive, you will begin to get a small idea of the number of miles one of tho indust rious little creatures must travel In HOOVER'S PLANS FOR FOOD CONTROL first look-in ox ORGANIZATION KOR COX SHKVIXO b'L'I'l'LIKS. namo of her mother after her parent had died.

Sweet potatoes are stored in honey, outdoor pits or banks, but this metn od is not to be recommended except where no other facilities are avail able. Sweet potatoes stored in pits are not as good in quality as those stored In houses. For further in formation on storing sweet potatoes write for Farmers' Bulletin 54S. Onions.

A European Port, July 29. An other American contingent has safely arrived and disembarked. The American troops arrived by the same steamer whereon Hermit Roosevelt, his wife and child traveled, When tenders went alongside tho vessel Friday tho men were In high spirits and frequently shouted: "Aro we downhearted?"

Samples re-t-tato in the Union, and since many 'covered show tho coal to bo undnmag ot our farmers have failed to reog-ed by Its long Immersion. to net, is shown in plans already worked out for taking caro of the great potato crop. Next to cereals, potatoes will bo Amerlcn's biggest crop. And next to wheat, potatoes aro most needed for export to our allies and to our own Boldlors In France. Last spring everybody was abjur ed to plant potatoes, potatoes, pota-- toesl Back yards and front yards and vacant lots all over the country wero turned Into potato patches. Tho result Is unless other than normal methods of handling the crop arc provided a very large part of It will go to waste, altho every potato Is needed. Already in tho' big early potato sec tions of Virginia and Eastern Mary land thousands of bushels are being left to rot in tho ground because local markets are glutted and transporta tion can not bo secured to outside markets. Had tho food bill been passed by July l, this enormous waste could have been avblded. Hoover expects to bo able to check it within a very short time after It is enacted. As soon as the bill becomes a law, tho food administration will pro vide storago facilities in every center of potato production and will buy at good price any surplus growers may not be able to place Immediately on the market, or for which they can not get transportation From these stocks the Government will be able to equalize supply In all big cities, removing any excuse for inflated prices due to local manipula tion or shortage. In cases where a particular market is glutted, with consequent danger of loss to grower or of wastage, the Government will take up tho surplus and 'thereby stabilize both supply and price. Immediately on passage of the law steps will be taken to equip a number of large dehydrating or evaporating plants for potatoes. Excess stocks of potatoes will be put thru these plants as rapidly as possible, relieving tho demand on storage space and pro viding a potato product for export which will save millions of tons of shipping. Potatoes contain eighty-five per cent water. With this water taken out, the potato requires less shipping space, weighs less and will keep In finitely better. Out of each 1,000 tons of potatoes for export to France wo will first re move S50 tons of water. Only IGO totns of vessel space will be required instead of 1,000 tons, and the S50 tons of water can bo put back In ngaln when the potatoes aro prepar ed for eating in France. These dehydrated potatoes loso nono of their nutritious or edible qualities in tho process. Sweet potatoes, of which the South promises a great harvest, will bo handled in tho same way. Many oth er vegetable crops may bo preserved similarly. All that is lacking to start the whoels of Hoover's big food regulat ing machine Is a final vote by Cong ress. Till that comes high prices and waste will continue. STANDARD OIL CO. HEAD FOUND SHOT TO DEATH such as silver spoons and pieces of household hardware, continued tn be missed.
