Treat Irish Potato Seed Against Scab. University Station, Baton Rouge, La., Feb. 3.-In making preparation for the potato crop Ithis year do not buy seed stock that is badly affected with comr mon scab, however cheap it may be as it is not fit to be planted, is thb advice of G. L. Tiebout, horti culturist in the state extension division. With a little precaution potato growers can have reason ably clean crops, he says. "All seed potatoes should be treated with formaldehyde before planting whether any scab is visi ble or not, as a small amount of the disease is likely to be over looked," says Mr. Tiebout. "The solution to be used for treating the seed potatoes is made by mixinqg one pint of commer cial formaldehyde with thirty gal lons of water. Soak the seed in I this solution for one-half hour to two hours. This should be done just before planting and before the potatoes are out. After they have soaked the desired length I of time, they should be taken out I of the solution and placed in a clean place. They are then ready for planting. "The potatoes should not be taken out of the solution andl piled Pi ip while still wet anid left over night. If the potatoes cannot be planted immediately, they should be allowed to dry. After the po- Th tat:,es have been treated, they i shoulrld rnot he allowed to come in P3 contalt with sacks or other mater- US6 ial that have been around un- ofl treated potatoes. If it is neces sary to again sack the potatoes, stt. either clean sacks should be used frc or else the old sacks should be hi1 soaked in the formaldehyde solu- W r tion, ter "The solution that has been La used for treating one lot of seed is still good arnd can be used again me and again. It is not advisable, by however to keep this solu'ion for in several days, as it will gradually ad lose its strength, ap "The formaldehyde can be ob. rIe -tiied at almnost any drug store. se It canl uEually he obtained in a;iled pound bottles at a very thi m'deriate cost. It should be guar- in rnteed to contain from 87 per bu 'ent to 40 per cent pure lorrialde. fri hyde." til 1lrl'rlage Licenses, se ist R. V. B3reland to Edna Pierce, in Sunny Hill. M dolhn S.
