Tentative Grades as Promulgated Are Based on Studies of More Than Two Years' Duration — Not Much Change Expected. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) A resume ef the wool standardiza tion work of the bureau of markets, United States Department of Agricul ture, shows that much progress has been made since the tentative estab lishment of definite wool grades .just a year ago. Following the prepara tion of a few sets for its fielt) agents and the subsequent press announce ment that tentative wool grades had been developed, requests for the sets have been distributed among Ihe bu reau's field agents, agricultural col leges, wool-growers' associations, wool dealers and mnnufactin >i ~. textile au thorities. and others interested. The tentative wool grades as-' pro mulgated are based on studies of more than two years' duration. In the course of this study thousands of samples of woo! submitted by deal ers and manufacturers as their inter pretations of ti e market grades were - I ! I I Grading Wooi 1er a co-operative Shipment. examined. As the tentative grades, before being put in final form, were submitted to some of the leading wool authorities in tlie country for sugges tions and criticisms, it is believed that little, if any. change will have to lie made when official standards are es tablished. During the past year investigation al and demonstrationai work to test the commercial utility of the grades was conducted in 16 states. Before meetings of woolgrowers and others, demonstrations were given to allow the preparation of the fleeces and tlie proper care and handling of the wool before Its shipment to market. In the states of Maine, New Hampshire. Virginia, Kentucky. Missouri and Ar kansas the several expert wool grad ers engaged by tiie bureau graded ap proximately 1.800,000 pounds of wool in accordance with the tentative wool grades. Tlds work has been looked upon so favorably by wool producers that requests have been received for a resumption of these activities dur ing the coming season.

Winged white ants are often ob served flying about houses In spring, and are sometimes supposed to have come in from outside. Hie bureau of entomology of the United States De oartment of Agriculture explains that these winged insects really are hatched inside the buildings, and usually are to he taken as indicating nests of wingless white ants working destruc thin In tlie timbers. These insects, which really are not properly ants, enter the wood wher ever it comes in contact with damp earth, and often eat into the center of an upright beam without manifesting their presence on the outside until the wood is entirely ruined, and possibly a settling and cracking of the build ing lias resulted. The department urges that build ings be constructed with such founda tions that no wood touches the ground, or if it Is necessary to use wood, that it he impregnated with tar creosote. Concrete floors should be laid on a gravel base to prevent dampness and cracking, and where cracks occur they should be promptly filled. Wild Horses Roam No More.
