Foreign Advertising Representative THE AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION A country editor recently dispos ed ot his business and gave as his excuse for selling out tnat every time he made a mistake in the paper it made him so nervous he couldn't sleep nights. If the average country publisher were similarly affected by errors in his sheet, a severe case of nervous prostration would be lurking around the corner every time the paper came off the press, and his nignts would be long, wakeful vigils. The philosophy ot a country editor is that if he makes a mistake in one issue of his paper, he must comfort himself with the thought that the next issue will, m all probability, contain a worse one. A goose is all right for Thanks giving, a turkey proper for Christ mas but it takes a chicken to make a happy New Year's Eve. If the money that is being put into the building of war vessels could be diverted to road building projects, sums would be made avail able that would cause the recent 75 million dollar federal aid apropria tion look like "chicken feed" from the baby's bank. The money spent on roads these days is startling, in a way, but as a nation we spend many times more money than this every vear maintain« a navv, and take it as a matter of course, it seems that only recently have the nations of the world become aware of the utter waste of Keeping up their navies. More than 27,000 motor vehicles, mostly trucks, have been distributed by the U. S. Department of Agri culture among the various states for road building purposes. Highway districts that have voted bonds and applied for federal aid have been able to secure these motor vehicles free of charge from the government. They are a part of the war ma terials originally intended for use in France.

DIG POTATOES WHEN SOIL IS QUITE DRY Tubers Are Matured When Vines Begin to Drop Off. Care Should Be Taken to Avoid Spear, ing or Cutting Them—Store in Cool, Dry and Well Ventilated Cellar or Pit. (Prepkred by the United States Department of Agriculture.) Potatoes require 90 to 100 days after planting before any will be ready for use. The tubers are not fully matured until after the vines die, or at least ripen and slied most of their foliage. Late potatoes In the Northern and Northeastern states are frequently caught by frost before the vines ripen, so should be dug just about the time frost first strikes them. Potatoes should be dug when the soil Is reason ably dry, so that It will not adhere to Exterior of Well-Built Potato Storage Houee. them. A spading fork or a potato hook is best for digging them and greut care should be taken to avoid spearing or cutting them in digging. Only a small quantity should be turned out at once, as they will become sunburned if ex posed more than an hour or two. Store potatoes in a cool, dry place where they will get plenty of ventila tion and be in the dark. Potatoes must not be allowed to freeze either before they are dug or while In storage. A good, cool, well-ventilated cellar or storm cellar forma a suitable storage place for potatoes and under proper conditions wjll keep through the win ter and into the early summer. An other method Is to bury the potatoes In a pit outdoors and cover them so that frost cannot get to them. SOME EGG SHIPPING 'D0NTS' Department of Agriculture Offert Few Practical Hints for Bonoflt of Poultrymen. Here are some "dont's" offered by the United States Department of Agri culture that many Urnes mean the dif ference between a loss or a profit In shipping carload eggs : Don't waste time and labor by using cheap* caseg; time and labor are pre cious. Don't save pennies by buying poor fillers and flats when you lose dollars in broken eggs. The saving of one egg would pay for the extra cost of a set of No. 1 fillers. Don't nail braces to sides of car against an incomplete top layer; they seldom hold In place and often are the cause of damage. They injure the ef ficiency of the car insulation. The use of small under-case braces will prevent all of this. Don't waste ice and refrigeration by stowing the load so as to make air cir culation in the car impossible. Don't tie up your money in freight claims because of a loose load. Tie up the load and leave the money loose to work again. NEEDS OF GROWING ANIMALS Pigs Thrive Better on Ear Corn and Green Alfalfa Than on Chopped and Ground Feeds. Ear corn and green alfalfa meet the needs of growing pigs better, and at less cost, than chopped alfalfa and ground cob and cornmeal. The alfalfa stems and cob meal are better suited to the needs of sheep or cattle. They can handle more fibrous, Indigestible mntter than pigs.
