WHEAT STEADY; CATTLE STRONG Packers Report Great Shortage of Hog»—Fruit Varies. MILL FEED IS LOWER Canadian Reports of Rust and Hail Steady Wheat on Chicago Market. The wheat market was a little stead ier at Chicago at the end of the week due to reports from Canada of rust and hail. Inland Umpire quotations stand about the same or slightly low er tor some. Armour company report a serious shortage of hogs, with no change in dressed beef. Fruit and vegetables have changed some as the season's yield fluctuates. The Nash company report cherries, red raspberries and loganberries at off the market. Green corn and string beans, as well as cantaloupes arc Mirin lower. Largest initial receipts of wheat ;it warehouses in years, and absence of important export buyign, together with favorable reports from Canada during the past week, makes the wheat market slightly lower and with little selling. Meat showed a visible decline in price. Seven carloads of cattle wert' received at the Spokane Union stork yards last Saturday but no sales re corded. Swine opened last week with a Rood demand but by Saturday the demand had dwindled almost to zero. Inland Empire Grain.

Not infrequent ly potatoes are piled to a depth of 10 to 15 feet, the pile being correspond ingly large in the other two dimen sions. When stored in this manner they are almost certain to go through a rather violent sweating or curing process, during the course of which the tubers in the central portion of the pile are frequently subjected to a dangerously high temperature. This is especially true if the tubers are slightly immature, or were not dry and free from moist soil when gath ered, or if stored when the outside temperature is high, making it diffl cult to lower the inside temperature of the house. Overheating from all of the causes mentioned may be avoid od by making some provision for aer .tting the pile.

Cultivation of the garden Is neces sary to maintain in the soil supply of air and moisture favorable to plant growth. Evaporation from the leaves carries away the moisture in the soil about the plant The moisture will rise to the surface through the par ticles of soil, as long as the ground contains a supply of water, thus keep ink *he upper layers of soil from dry ing out.

MANUFACTURE OF FARM IMPLEMENTS HUGE SUM Gas tractors to the number of 203, --000 with a total value of $193,000,000, more than 1,000,000 plows with a value of over $40,000,000, 225,000 farm wag ons with a value of nearly $25,000, --000 and 412,000 haying machines with a value of nearly $25,000,000 were manufactured In the United States during the year of 1920, according to detailed reports from 583 manufac turers obtained recently. The total value of implements manufactured was $537,000,000 and gas tractors con stituted more than one-third of the total. These figures are a summary of de tailed reports which 583 manufactur ers of tractors, farm implements, ve hicles, and other farm operating equip ment recently submitted. Every man ufacturer of farm equipment in the country was asked for a report of his activities and while a few did not re spond, it is certain that at least 99 per cent of the entire Industry Is rep resented In the figures above, and for most clauses of equipment the Infor mation la practically complete. SUNFLOWERS INSTEAD OF CORN FOR SILAGE Sun flowers promise to be of greatest value for silage in areas which will not produce corn satisfactorily on ac count of cold weather or insufficient moisture, say government experts after extensive experimentation. The yields obtained at various state experi ment stations and in different counties in Washington show that it is a profit able crop, particularly in areas not well suited for corn. Approximately twice the yield of corn was secured from sunflowers grown for silage on the experimental fields at Pullman. In trials it is shown that while the dry matter and digestible nutrients are lower for sunflowers than for corn the acre-yield of digestible nutrients is greater for sunflowers than for corn. The silage has proved to be satisfac tory and can be substituted for corn silage in rations for dairy cattle, beef cattle, and sheep. SHIP WITH CARE Weak Containers, Poor Venti lation, Disease Cause Loss. Careless loading of potatoes, espe cially early potatoes, for shipment causes yearly considerable loss. Shift ing of the loads in transit, weak and partly filled packages, and lack of proper ventilation are found to be re sponsible for losses in many cars ar riving ut markets. Caution against loading diseased potatoes is also urged' because of the large number of ship ments that show scab, wilt or late blight, and in some cases are prac tically worth less when they reach the market. Press Potatoes Firmly In Barrels. The doubleheaded ventilated barrel, it is said, appears to be the best pack age for new potatoes that Is now In general use. If properly made, It pro tects the potatoes as well as holds them in place. Much less breakage has been found in cars where the bar rels are loaded on end than when loaded on their bilgn. Wooden strips sould be placed on top of the lower layers of barrels for the upper layers to rest upon. There is one serious objection to this method of loading. In some in stances the barrels appear to be slack measure when they arrive at the mar ket, due to the jolting in transit. This fault, however, It is said, can be largely eliminated if growers will fill '.heir barrels full and use a press when heading. Loading barrels on their bilge Is said- not to be a safe practice unless lieadliners (strips to prevent heads bulging) are used. It is said that the use of headliners would prevent nine enths of the breakage in all types of loads with barrels. Records show that practically every car has from 3 to 30 or more barrels broken on arrival at he market. Exert bracing is needed when barrels are loaded on their bilge. Wooden strips should be placed across the floor at frequent intervals ;n order to prevent Uie lower barrels from rolling. Use of rocks for this pur pose localizes the strain and causes much breakage. Strips should be also placed across the doors to prevent the barrels on the upper layer from fall ing against and jammnig the doors. Another method of loading barrels on their bilge has been noted which is believed to be even better. This con sists of placing five barrels across the car with the length of the barrel par allel with the length of the car. The second layer should contain four bar rels placed in the hollows formed where the lower ones meet. The third layer contains five barrels the same as the first. This will give six stacks to the doorway in each end of a 36 --I'oot car. The doorway should be tilled with barrels placed on their bilge crosswise of the car in order to hold the load tight. The sack, it is said, is not a suitable container for tender new potatoes; it offers no protection from bruising, and when loaded is hard to ventilate. If sacks are to be used they should be of no greater capacity than 120 pounds. This size sack can be han dled with much greater care and lends Itself to ventilation better than larger sizes. Neither are hampers, it is said, suitable packages for potatoes. They do not have the necessary strength for the weight of their contents and offer little protection for the potatoes.

Great care should be taken to make the load tight and no slnck space be al lowed in the car. This lessens the chance of shifting. Weak Crates Should Not Be Used. Crates of various sorts are being used, and, according to reports, ap pear satisfactory where the strength of the crate is sufficient for the weight of its contents. Weak crates should not be used under any circumstances, and crates with wide opening tend to wilt the potatoes while in transit. Crates must be loaded tightly and firmly and no slack space left with out suitable bracing, while stripping is recommended. No matter what container is used the grower should exercise great care to keep diseased and injured potatoes out of it. A very high percentage of the cars arriving at northern markets show much scab, bacterial wilt, late blight, or all three. Growers should also see that their packages are well filled. Weak packages should not be used. A woman who has been on a party wire never feels at home when she moves into a house with a private phone. Arcweld Pipeless Furnace *«■%! \ for old nml new houses.
