ITEMS OF INTEREST TO THE FARMER == AND STOCK GROWER = Government Receipe For White wash During the spring months many farmers plan to renovate and white wash their buildings and for their benefit the tested Government recipe for making whitewash is printed: Slack one-half bushel of lime, -dis solve one peck of common salt and boil three pounds of rice until it is thick paste. Mix these together and add while the mixture is still hot one-half pound of plaster of Paris and one pound of dissolved glue. Then add five gallons of water and let it stand for a few days. Apply bot to the building with small brush es. A quart of carbolic acid makes this mixture a good disinfectant. There is still a large quantity of timber in the United States, but much of it at the present time is inacces aible. Sixty-one per cent of the standing timber lies west of the Great Plans, far removed from the bulk of population and the centers of manu facture. Forests have disappeared in other sections, but the country has never bothered itself about growing new ones. Idle forest land is at the bottom of the whole shortage that confronts the country today. There are 326,000,000 acres of cut-over or denuded forests in the United States, and the area of idle land increases by from 3,000,000 to 4,0()0,000 acres annually. 9mm Florida citrus growers are looking forward to perhaps the longest ship ping season in the history of the pro duction of oranges and grapefruit in the state. Indications are, it is said, that both oranges and grapefruit will be moving earlier and probably will continue to be shipped later than in any season heretofore. This spread of shipments over a long period, in the opinion of experienced shippers, means a profit and prosperity for the growers such as would not be pos sible if the shipments were crowded into a shorter space of time. • • m Federal-aid road projects totaling 663 miles in length were completed and 541 miles went under construc tion during May, bringing the total under construction to nearly 13,000 T dga^tt^s W They are GOOD! 3909C9C9C909^9C9C9C9G9G909Q909Q9C9 v und go per I rgains 1 paper by the pound of i equal quality paper jjjj xed goods, but at less ’retty boxes cost money price Is included with :* ■ ***> paper.

These figures indicate that the Federal-aid system grew at a of more than 20 miles per day on each v.orkmg day of the month. Allot ments of funds to definite projects amounted to $1,828,000 during the month. 9 9 9 Solve The Winter Feed Problems By Planting Summer Hay and Forage Crops “Crops of cowpeas, sorghum, Spanish peanuts, and beggarweed sown during July will keep the land from laying idle, and will also help solve the feed problems this fall and winter,” says W\ E. Stokes, forage specialist. Late plantings as a rule do not yield as high as earlier plantings. Ho\\e\er, if the land is thoroly pre pared, and in the case of sorghums a little fertilizer applied, very good results may be received. Brabham and Iron cowpeas plant ed in July in close rows and worked a time or two, will come off for hay after the rainy season is over, giving a product if properly handled superior in feeding value to most any that is shipped into the state. Spaish peanuts may be planted in Juiy in 24 to 30 inch rows, and 2 to 4 inches in the drill. They should be worked with a weeder before and af ter they come up, and laid by with a small sweep, pushing a little dirt up to the vines. The vines may be used as hay and the nuts for hog feed, or let them remain in the field to be har vested by the hogs alone. Hulled beggarweed seed sowed at the rate of 15 to 20 pounds to the acre on a well-prepared seed-bed will for fall cutting. furnish excellent grazing and hay Late planted sorghum requires good preparation of the land, ample fertil ization and thoro cultivation. It should be drilled in rows and culti vated as you would corn. Where an earlier planting has been made a second crop can be had by fertilizing and cultivating the stubble after the first crop has been cut. * • • Local Creameries Offer Best Means Of Marketing Dairy Products In Florida The product the dairyman is to produce determines the type of dairy j farming he should follow. Dairy farming is organized on a basis to supply the large consuming centers. Large cities demand large quantities of fresh raw milk, and if- the dairy man is going to produce whole milk, he should near some large con suming-center, and equip himself to become a highly specialized dairy farmer. * • The market for high quality milk in Florida is limited because of the few large cities in the state. During the tourist season, which lasts from three to five months, there is a fairly good demand for high quality milk, but small in comparison to the states with many large cities, as is found in the East and Middle Wester states. The amount of the whole milk con sumedvis small in comparison to the amount consumed as by-products of milk, Such as butter, cheese, ice cream, or caned and powdered milk for cooking purposes: and Florida im ports some $17,000,000 worth in these forms each year, according to Pro fessor H. L. Brown, extension dairy man. In speaking of Florida’s needs in marketing dairy products Mr. Brown says: "The great need in this state are markets conveniently located to the farming sections, so that farmers may supply milk and cream to be manufactured into by-products. Dur ing the tourist season the creameries can supply milk to the lrage consum ing centers. “This type of dairy farming will make dairying possible on thousands of farms that are situated too far from the. whole milk markets, and will put the dairying in rural com munities where the full benefits of the Industry can be secured.” • mm Stocks of beef in cold storage on- June 1. 1922, were but little over half those in storage last year and only slightly more than one-third the five year-average stock, according to the United Etates Departhent of Agricul ture. • • • The American Legion, Department of Florida, is planning for an exten sive display of Florida products at the Fourth National Convention, to be held in New Orleans next October. J. A. Dew of West Palm Beach, is chairman of the exhibit committee. A committee is also preparing a book let for distribution at the conven tion, in the hopes that a consider able number of the ex-service men from other states will become interest ed in Florida’s advantages and oppor tunities. The various posts are fi nancing the necessary expense with support received from business men and other organizations. • • • The Department of Commerce an inounees that, according to the Four teenth Decennial Census, the farm population of the United States on January 1, 1920, was 31.614,269, or 1 29.9 per cent of the total population of the country on that date. Of this , number, 31,358,640 were enumerated ! in rural territory and 255.629 on farms i located within thelimits of cities and j-other incorporated places having 2,- 1500 inhabitants or more. It may be I noted in this connection that the cen !sus definition of a farm extends some what beyond the ordinary meaning of the term in that it includes any fruit or market garden, poultry yard, dairy, or apiary which either yielded $250 worth of products in 1919 or re quired for its operation the continu ous services of at least one person i during that year. The farm popula | tion comprises both farm operators ! and farm laborers and their families, including farm laborers and their families not actually on farms but not lviing in incorporated places. * * * Anew method of keeping hay with out curing it in the sun has been* i worked out in Switzerland. The newly ; mowed hay is stored on metal sheets ■ m silos of 400 feet capacity. Another ' metal sheet closes the top of the j silo and the two sheets are connected jin an electric circuit, so an alternat ing current of from 200 to 500 volts is. passed through the grass between them. This enables the grass to be preserved in its natural state until required. It can be cut and stored irrespective of weather conditions and it contains twice the nutriment of an equal quantity of hay. • • 9 Lettuce is shipped from California the year round, according to the Unit ed States Department of Agriculture. New York and Florida alternate, Flor ida shipping during the winter and early spring and New York duripg the rest of the year. Other States which ship lettuce commercially are North and South Carolinta, New Jer sey, Michigan. Colorado, Minnesota, Idaho, and Washington. • * m Florida has 35,000,000 acres of land, of which at least 20,000,000 acres can be made suitable for farming. The last government census report shows 6.046.691 acres included in farm lands of all descriptions, but only 2.297,- 271 acres of improved farm land. • • • Strawberries arrived on the New York market at the rate cf two to three hundred cars a week during May, the United States Department of Agriculture reports. The shipments from all producing sections filled about 3,000 cars a week. m m • A Moore Haven land owner is real izing S2OO per acre by shipping his soil to the fertilizer factories. And the farmers of Florida pay long prices for that 'same topsoil when it is mix ed, with a few chemicals and put up in 200 pound sacks. RICHMOND MAN REVEALS FACTS ABOUT HIT CASE He Feels Like a Different Person, Says R. E.
