STORE IN WELL BUILT HOUSE An Abandoned Tenant House Can Very O.ten Be Utilized For This Purpose. Improper methods of harvesting and storing sweet potatoes are re sponsible for large losses which greatly decrease the value of tit crop, according to A. F. Kidder, pro fessor of agronomy, Louisiana State University. Louisiana's sweet pota to crop for this year is estimated to be 5,000,000 bushels, and growers would do well to take precautions against undue losses through careless handling. Some of the things to be observed ar6 as follows: 1. Potatoes should be thoroughly mature before being harvested. 2. They should be handled careful ly to prevent bruises, as such places cause rot very quickly. 3. Injured potatoes should not be stored with sound ones. 4. The potatoes should be sub jected to a temperature of 85 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit, as soon as they are put away, and the moisture con tent reduced to 10 per cent or less. 5. Potatoes should be stored in a well built house, where the temper :ature can be kept uniform. This will save a large per cent of all good r sound potatoes, while the old bank method usually causes a loss of 25 to 50 per cent. Old tenant houses can often be utilized for that purpose. 0DISPOSE OF THE UNPROFITABLE lEN Culling Should Be Done Frequently and Thoroughly. After hens reach a certain age, de pending upon the way they have been handled, they can no longer pro duce eggs profitably. Those which are forced for heavy egg production by the liberal use of stimulants will reach this stage quicker than the oth ers. Whenever this stage is reached the nens should be marketed as soon as possible. A pretty safe rule to follow with J the average flocks which have not been treated with stimulants is as follows: Dispose of hens of the light, active breeds, such as Leghorns and gd Anconas, as soon as they have passed through their third laying season: and dispose of all the medium weight breeds, such as Plymouth Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, Wyandottes and Orpigntons as soon as they have pass ed through two laying seasons. At the same time, discard all younger hens which have baggy abdomens, which have a tendency to stay over, fat, or which lack health or vigor in any way. The calling should be done fre. quently and thoroughly. It rarerly pays to hold an old or a weak bird 44 for a better market. The quicker they are sold the better. The average flock should be thoroughly culled at least once a month. Such practice will not materially reduce the output of the Slock, but, on the other hand, will greatly increase the profits by reducing the required amount of high priced feed and labor.-A. F. Rolt, Poultry Specialist, Extension DIvi. sion, Loaisiana State University. OATS YIELD WELL FOLLOWING LEGUMES Some examples of successful oat production in different parts of Louis iana where the crop was planted on lands that had grown a leguminoua crop the previous summer are given below. In each case the land was broken to a depth of from six to ten inches and then thorouglhly disked and harrowed. In the Red River valley, near Shreveport, a 40-acre Seld of oats grown on land that had been in alfa. fa for four years yielded 84 bushels I Sper acre. Two bushels of acclimated LTexas red-rust-proof oats per acre were drilled October 15. In the Ouachita River valley, near Monroe, 50 bushels of oats per acre were produced on land that had been I in lespedeza. Two and one-half bush-. iels of Louisiana red-rust-proof oats Sper acre were drilled October 15. On the Bayou Macon ridge 58t Sacres produced oats as follows: 20 Sacres that had been in lespedsza were drilled to oats September 25 and produced 50 bushels per acre; five sores that had grown corn and peas Swere planted to oats October 10 and produced 30 bushels per acre; 28 aeres of cotton land were planted to oats from October 10 to November 1 and produced 25 bushels per acre. A farm in one of the Delta parishes Sproduced 65 bushels per acre on land gO that had grown cowpeas and 40 bush els on land without the peas. Two or three bushels of oats per acre were Sdrilled early in October.-L S. II. Prsem Bunotin. IF YOU NEED Letterheads Cards Invitations Folders a Statements Circular.
