For fattening at this early season use should be made of the grain-pas-j ture crops, soy beans, and cow peas, and if early sown sweet potatoes. These crops will fatten | hogs quickly and require only a " I results. These and require ; small amount of grain to give good On fairly rich soil, soy beans will produce more feed than the other f Af«Q<vac FoaIi anrn nr ill oAPai»^ noc. forages. Each acre will afford pas ture for 150-pound shotes for six to seven weeks. In order to insure against the production of an inferior soft pork, a one-third com ration be fed in connection with the SO y.^ )ean p as t ure , especially during t jj e j a tter part of the fattening pe riod, and when such a system is fol lowed each acre of soy beans will produce from four to seven hundred pounds of pork. Cowpeas succeed better on poor soils than do soy beans, but their value as a pork producing crop is boys'much less: Fully twice as much grain must be fed cowpea pasture as was recommended in the case of soy beans in order to obtain equally rap id and heavy gains. When a One third grain ration is fed in connec tion w *th cowpea forage, one acre will carry eighj 150-pound shotes from four to five weeks, and the pork-producing power will be corres pondingly reduced under that esti mated for soy beans. The southern farmer is familiar with the culture of sweet potatoes, They may be used to very good ad vantage in the production of pork, The pigs do their own harvesting, and when a high protein supplement, such as soy-bean meal, or tankage is fed in addition in order to balance the ration, one acre will produce ■ from four to eight hundred pounds of pork in a four weeks' grazing pe riod, depending upon the yield of potatoes. SLIDELL LAUNCHES GER BOAT. PASSEN New Orleans, La., September 18.

Planter. The auspicious weather that have been having for so many weeks has benefited the cane crop every where throughout the state. The cool September days, or rather the cool nights that have now come upon us, will have the eeffet of checking the ripening it. Those in attendance at the great sugar convention in New Orleans this week, report generally that the situation in the country is excellent. The present week is ideal J^or harvesting hay and corn for fall plowing. rFom all reports, Lou isiana will give a good account of herself this season, although not yet reaching up to her highest levels.

Lippert, the present division director, will con tinue his work in association with Mr. Carroll, as head of the Bureau of Development and Publicity. He will also have general charge of the re-1 lations with chapters.

Division headquarters are for the present in the Post Office Building, New Orleans.

This work is being done through the thirteen divisions, rnde • carefully chosen volunteer management. All Departments of the National Headquarters are represented in the offices of the division managers These include the Woman's Bureau, the departments of Civilian and Military Relief, the Red Cross Sup ply Service and the Nursing Service. The decentralized arrangement en ables them to keep in more intimate touch with the activities of the rap idly growing chapters than was pos sible when directed from Washing ton. --- WHO IS USING THE PANAMA CANAL? The report of the Panama Canal for the fiscal year ending July 1, 1917, shows that during the twelve months preceding, 1876 seagoing vessels passed through the Canal in one direction or the other. Of these 464 were American, 780 British and 632 of other foreign registry. Com paring 1917 with 1915, the first year the canal, of the Canal's operations, we see that there has been an increase of 160 per cent in the foreign shipping but a slight decrease in the Ameri can. The number of British ships using the Canal has increased by 70 per cent, the Chilean by 60 per cent, the Norwegian by 250 per cent, and the Japanese by 1100 per cent, while the American ,has lost ground. It would seem from this that the Panama Canal was a philanthropic enterprise, constructed by the Ameri can chiefly for the benefit of foreign commerce. Yet the fault is not in It is our own lack of ships that leaves us in the lurch. Evidently the somewhat selfish an ticipations entertained at the outset of the war that American commerce Er Noodles and Vermicelli In Sanitary Packajes Simon Pure Leaf Lard In Tins He-No Uptons & Banquet Tea In Packages JOLLEY BROS.

It is found that cribbing corn wuh the husks on in9ure Mrry mg practically every insect from the Southern farmers should husk their ear corn in the field and not field to the crib, and it practically doubles the volume of storage room required per bushel of corn. The amount of carbon bisulphid needed to treat unhusked corn in open is much larger than that required for husked corn in closed cribs. Husk ing in the field will leave at least three-fourths of the insects on the husks in the field. This will reduce 1 subsequent injury during storage. There is no need for an open crib m which to store the thoroughly well-matured corn of the South Storage rooms must be made tight enough for fumigation. The dosage required for bare cars will be about 10 pounds of carbon bisulphid per 1,000 cubic feet, or one-half the amount needed with the husks on. Store as soon as the corn is thor oughly matured and fumigate promptly for best results. If insect attack develops in the crib, treat again, using a heavier dosage. Doing the work during warmer weather will increase the effectiveness of the gas. j j | j ] ' | f !

Young women as well as young men are urged to en ter the telegraph service and the training of this army of telegraph ers will be a great undertaking. These operators are to enable the government to handle its war tele graph business without taking any more operators from the railroad and commercial telegraph forces, many members of which have joined the forces. The Western Union Tele graph Co., alone is undertaking the task of training twenty-five hundred operators for the government ser vice. There are more than thirty five thousand amateur wireless op erators in the United States. Young women are particularly de sired for commercial work, accord ing to the government appeal, anl the cause, too. Women are doing active work in all the countries at war and America should lead in this great movement. Telegraph opera tors rank in the rmy and navy in preferred positions as well as pay, and this will be a great incentive to ambitious young men to join either branch.
