To grow a second crop of Irish po tatoes to be used for winter uses Is a perplexing problem for the farmer. Keeping the first crop over for winter use is almost impossible and it is a choice of buying the winter supply or growing the second crop. The greatest difficulty in planting the first crop seed is in getting a stand. The new potatoes will not ger minate readily, and if planted only a small percentage will grow. Some growers overcome this diffi culty by placing the seed potatoes, as soon as they are dug, in a moist, fairly cool place such as In a shallow trench in the shade of a tree. Or by cutting in halves, spreading on the ground and covering with pine needles kept moist. They are then watched, and as they show signs of sprouting are planted in deep furrows, covering lightly at first, working the soil to them as they grow until level. Then cultivate shallow and level. Some va rieties make a better second crop than others, among which are Early Rose, B’iss Triumph, Irish Cobbler and Peerless Plant in soil where the mois ■ire has been retained. H. E. Truax, Asst.
