1. Question.
Ia formaldehyde as good (effective)
In the treatment of cereul smuts as
copper sulfate (blue vitriol)?
Formaldehyde is bettor than copper
sulfate for treating grain. Formalde
hyde costs one-sixth as much as cop
per sulfate and experiments have
shown that the seed are less apt.to be
Injured by formaldehyde.
"•.s2. Question.
What, strength formaldehyde should
be used?
Forty per cent formaldehyde solu
tion procured at any drug store at the
rate of one pint to 40 gallons of water.
3. Question.
Is (he method of sprinkling for
maldehyde on the grain effective?
If the grain has been thoroughly
cleaned in fan mill the sprinkle
method Is sill right. However, if your
grain contains smut balls, which' can
be removed by a fan mill, it is a waste
The fish again are in the* brook from
distant waters faring and I must take

store, and stay at home and eat it.
You're always grouchy as a bear when
you come home from angling the way

better far too plant some spuds, or
prune the growing carrot, or gather up
my winter duds and stow them in the

feel would make the deadest swab stir

to grind the reaping hook, and toil

In vie.w of wliat the sane elenu'iils in (ieniKiny arc doing to sui'

tion of necessity and .justice based on entenie confidence in its own
strength must supplant the nightmare panics of a Germany concoct
ing dire plot by hiding parks of artillery in junker barns and se
cretly drilling new armies. The volunteer forces which are being re
cruited in Germany are not a menace to the entente. They are in
tended to act, aud have acted, as a safeguard against upheaval and
chaos which would only leave the entente without a government to
talk peace with. We liave passed through the irrational stage in
which huge indemnities were to be exacted from a Germany that was
to be economically crippled. It is now high time to recognize that

before, when I did not treat at all
How do you account for mis?
This is a question which is common
ly asked. Perhaps the grain was no!
covered for the required time aftei
treatment, or perhaps it containc
smut, balls which were not removei
before treating, or maybe the grtiic
was not dipped for long enough time
5. Question.
Will formaldehyde control all smuts
No. Corn smut and loose smut o\
wheat and barley are not controlled
by formaldehyde treatments. Th«
reasons why these smuts are not con
trolled by formaldehyde are: The corn
smut organism lives over in the soil
and the loose smut organisms of wheat
and barloy live Insldi* the grain, so In
either case disinfection with formalde
hyde is of no avail.—James (ieodkln,
