Harvest at the Right Time and Handle
Your Crop Carefully.

The present indications are that the
Irish potato c#op in Arkansas will he
considerably above the average. This
being the case and knowing that there
are still large quantities of the North
ern grown crop still in storage, it be
comes evident that if we expect to
market our crop with profit we must
exercise the greatest care in the har
vesting, grading and shipping of our
Care Necessary at Time of Harvest.
Watch the market and do not dig
the potatoes until mature unless the
demand is good and the prices high.
Remember, digging must be done as
soon us the crop is mature, but that
mature potatoes if handled right will
keep longer and, therefore, can be
marketed slowly and with more profit
than if they had to be put on a poor
market because they were dug too
soon and would not keep Exercise
the greatest cure in the handling of
'lie crop at time of harvest and if it
e n be avoided do not dig the crop
when the soil is wet because this
causes the soil to adhere to the tub
ers and increases the chance of
bruises and, consequently, rotting. If
you can afford to do so, use a potato
digger for harvesting the crop. These
are made in such a way that when
i lie soil is in proper condition they
will leave almost ail of the potatoes
in sight. Do not dig the potatoes an 1
leave them exposed to the sun any
longer than it can be helped, employ
ing. if possible, enough help to keep
them picked up as ituo. as they are
Grade the Potatoes Properly.
If w»» expect to receive a retnunera
live price for our potatoes this year
it is absolutely necessary that we
have them properly graded. The Bu
reau of Markets of the U. 3. Depart
ment of Agriculture urges the adop
lion of the following grades;
U. S. Grade No. 1.
“This grade shall consist of sound
potatoes of similar varietal character
istics which are practically free from
dirt, or other foreign matter, frost in
jury, sunburn, second growth, cuts,
scab, blight, dry rot and damage caus
ed by insect, disease or mechanical
means. The minimum diameter of pe
'atoes of round varieties shall be 1 7 8
aches and of potatoes of long varie
ties 1 3-4 inches, in order to allow
i >r variations incident to commercial
f ading and handling, ftve^r centum
y weight of any lor may be under
he prescribed siee and. in addition,
hr*M peacentum by weight of any
neb let may be below the remaining
:>-quip^MBnts of this grade."
U. 8. Grade Neu ■.
"This grade shall consist of pota
toes of similar varietal characteris
es whieto are practically free from
frost, injury and decay, and which are
.fee from serious damage caused by
lift or other foreign matter, sunburn,
econd growth, cuts, s^fe, blight, dry
it. or other disease, Bsects or me
li.mical means. The minimum diam

> allow for variations incident to

tdition, five per centum by weight
' any such lots may be below the
:4'-uaintng requirements of this
The above grades point out clearly
) us just what is to be expected of
ir growers this season and unless we
leasure up to the requirements prices
ay be unusually low.
itek Potatoes Properly—Leeks Mean
a •eat Deal.
Finally, after the potatoes have
eu graded they must be put in .1
•at, clean sack. All sacks should be
tactically new and of llm same slae.
tatoes from Arkansas are often car
d to the cars for shipping in any
•:d every kind of each 'h.u can he
-ked up and a* a result they make
bad ippenrauoe on the market. Do
ot make tins mistake, for if the po
toes have been graded properly and
n pieced in clean bags of the same
the appearance will be far better
;d, consequently, a better price will
> paid tor them. It is well to be
minded of a certain buyer In the
ort Smith section Iasi season who
ictight a carload of potatoes at 91.16
■. bushel. He had the potatoes plac
d in new bags of equal slae and then
otsold them right on the yard for 86
onts a bushel more than he paid for
lit in. The few extra cents that may
■ome from proper grading and pack
ng or sacking may raaea the differ'
.■nee between profit and loss
Arkansas has a big crop of potatoes.
I jet us fry to put them up in such a
way as to secure the beet price for
them. Talk this over with the mMir
tiers of your association and write to

A WAR CHAUTAUQUA.
Editorial In Cleburne (Tex.) More
.ns Review: Cleburne is to have her
hautauqua this summer aa usual.
This is as it should he. It has the
iirect and unqualified -approval of
President Wilsotf, Secretary McAdoo
uid other government officials. The
President told Mr Horuer ttnt It
would be a “oalamlty” to call off the
Chautauquas over the United Statea.
Secretary McAdoo said we need a
mobilization of minds as much aa we
lo of men and munitions.
Our Chautauqua, therefore, this year
will be dedicated to the winning of
Jie war. War, now, is our chief busi
ness. Anything that pertains to the
winning of the war is or should be,
interesting to us all. Men and women
ire coming to us this season with a
living, breathing message about the
war. These people will bring, in many
instances, first hand knowledge, thrill
ing end Interesting. There will also
>e, of course, plenty entertainment to
ers parsed. It Is Important that every
thing, so far as possible, go on as be
fore the war. Certainly this should
be true of the Chautauqua.
