MADE EWES FOB 1 STABT II SHEEP Yearlings or Two-Year-Olds Are Preferable as Foundation for Beginner. PUREBRED RAM IS FAVORED Selection of Type and Breed 8hould Be Made by Considering Class of Pasture and Feeds Available Merino Is Liked. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) The Inexperienced sheep raiser should begin with grade ewes of the best class available and a purebred ram. The raising of purebred stock and the selling of breeding rams can best be undertaken by persons experi enced In sheep raising. The selection of the type and breed of sheep should be made by considering the class of pasture and feeds available and the general system of farming to be fol lowed, along with the peculiarities of the breeds, and the conditions and kind of feeding and management for which each has been especially devel oped. Keep Same Breed. It Is highly advantageous for all, or a majority of the farms In a neighbor hood, to keep the same breed of sheep, or at least to. continue the use ol rams of the same breed. After a de cision has been made as to a suitable breed the aim should be to obtain ewes that are Individually good, and that have as many crosses as possible of the breed selected. With such a foun dation and the continuous use of good purebred rams of the same breed, the flock will make continuous Improve ment. In looking for ewes of desired types and breeding, it will often be found impossible to get them near at home at a reasonable price. Ewes from the Western ranges can be ob tained directly from a stockyard mar ket. For the most part the range ewes are of Merino breeding. Ewes for Foundation. First-class ewe lambs and less often older stock bred on the range and sired by ranis of the down or long d Select Individuals of Foundation Flock With Greatest of Care. wool breeds, are sometimes obtainable. These, or even the Merino ewes, fur nish a foundation for the flock that can be quickly graded up by using rams of the breed preferred. The Iambs from Merino ewes and mutton rams grow well and sell well If well cared for, but the yield Is less than when ewes with some mutton blood are used. The sheep trom the range are less often infested with internal parasites than are farm sheep, and In the large shipments there Is opportu nity for closer selection. Yearling or two-year-old ewes art preferable to older stock. Ewes with "broken mouths"—that is those that have lost some of their teeth as a result of age — can be purchased cheeper than younger ones, but are not good property for inexperienced sheep raisers. In buying ewes, particularly those from the range, It is desirable, when possible, to examine the udders to see that they are free from lumps that would prevent the ewes from being milkers. It Is' necessary to guard also against buying ewes that are useless as breeders, because of the ends of the teats having been clipped off at shearing. HOPS MAKE INCREASED CROP Gain of 17 Per Cent Over 1917 U Ex pectation Made by Bureau of Crop Estimate«. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) Hops will make a larger crop this year than in 1917 by 17 per cent, if the recent forecast by the bureau of crop estimates of the United States depart ment of agriculture is confirmed by the harvest. The expectation Is 32,494,000 pounds, with which may be compared the crop of 27,788,000 pounds in 1917, of 50,595,000 pounds in 1916, and of 52, 186,000 pounds in 1915. SWEET POTATOES IN UP-TO-DATE HOUSES Value of Crop Can Be Increased by Proper Storage. Very Few of Those Placed In Outdoor Pits or Banks Ever Reach Market —From 35 to 50 Per Cent Are Spoiled. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) Sweet potatoes stored In up-to-date storage bouses bring a higher price on the market than those stored in banks and pits. By the adoption of the bet ter methods of storing and marketing sweet potatoes, their value could bo greatly Increased without Increasing the acreage or production. This Is especially true In the South, where they are either rushed on the market at digging time, when the price Is low, or stored in outdoor pits or banks, where * !

Very few of the potatoes stored In pits or banks ever reach the market, for from 25 to 50 per cent spoil, while those that remain sound are not of good quality. Even if the pit or bank method of storage were satisfactory In other re spects, it is not economical. Too much labor and expense are required to make these banks every year and to get the potatoes out of them when wanted for market. Sweet potatoes can be marketed more economically and to much better advantage from storage houses. It is not advisable to open a hank when the soil Is wet. or the weather cold, as these conditions injure the potatoes and cause them to decay. Outdoor pits and banks can not be depended on. In some years a very small number spoil In banks, while In other years practically the whole crop Is lost. The only safe and practicable method of storing sweet potatoes Is In a storage house, for then they can be taken out at any time with out subjecting them to unfavorable conditions. SAVE COWPEAS FROM WEEVIL Fumigation of Stored Seed With Car . bon Disulphid Prevents De structive Attacks. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) Large supplies of cowpeas now in storage by growers principally in the southern states can be saved from de structive attacks of the weevil by fumigating with carbon disulphid. Southern-grown cowpeus usually be come heavily Infested by weevils in storage, and, as there is a surplus sup ply on hand at present, growers should avatcb their stored seed carefully. Weevils are particularly destructive during warm weather, and If they are not destroyed soon render stored seed unfit for feeding or planting. Fumigation by carbon disulphid is a safe and effective remedy. It Is done by placing seeds in water tight barrels to within a few inches of the top. Into each barrel pour one-half cupful of carbon disulphid directif on the peas or into an absorbent material such as cloth or cotton. Then cover the barrel with double thickness of heavy wrapping paper or some such material, tied tightly around the top in order to prevent the fumes of the chemical from escaping. Let the bar rel stand for several days and then examine. If adult weevils are seen crawling about among the seeds, a sec ond fumigation should be given. Fumigation should be done during warm weather. It is difficult td* kill weevils with carbon disulphid at a temperature lower than 65 degrees F. and the best results follow when the temperature Is above 75 degrees F. The Sooner cowpeas ore threshed and treated after harvesting, the better, as the treatment kills the young weevil grubs within the seeds and prevents them from continuing to devour the crop. After treatment, keep the bar rels covered as during fumigation, for this prevents weevils from flying Into the barrel and laying eggs on the seeds. Growers who have cowpea seed in storage should send to the United States department of agriculture, Washington, D. C., for Farmers' Bulle tin 983, which gives Information re garding bean and pea weevils, and Farmers' Bulletin 799, which gives In formation on the use and nature of carbon disulphid as a fumigant for cowpeas. These bulletins will be sup plied free as long as the supply lasts. Make The New Year's Resolution And Stick With It.
