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

Restores the Quality of Your Blood, P1
Brings Back Your Color and lu
Renews Vitality
Personal charm is like a light.
It sheds its rays everywhere. Is C
the light of your. personal charm
hidden under the bushel of bad C
blood? Instead of habitual smiles ea
do you wear a tiied look--almost et
a scowl? Do you tire easily? Are
you pale and lacking iii vital en
ergy and ambition?
You are not really ill. Your 2
' blood has become weak and slug
- gish. It is half starved, What M
I you need is the blood making ee
, qualities of that splendid tonic, M
Pepto-Mangan. After you have be
taken PeptoMarigan a little
a while you will feel a big improve
7' meut. The smiles will come back. M
1 People will see a difference in tn
t you. You will have plenty of G
rich, red blood and feel stronger.
Pepto-Mangan has been build- A
ing red blood for years. PhysiA
cians prescribe it right along. u
B It has just the ingredients that G
starved blood needs. Sold in li
quid and tablet form. Both have 9
the same effect. But be sure
you get the genuine Pepto.Man- P
gan. Ask for '"Gude's" and be N
sure that the full name, "Gude's
Pepto- Mangar," is on the pack. F
