i. Home Storage.
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
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
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
