An Iowa farmer has succeeded In opening up a big field for bis enter prise by applying an old method to a new service. Be has gone Into the business of furnishing fresh eggs dally to a regular list of customers, after the fashion of the milkmen and bakers. This farmer Is a man who raises many chickens and markets a large number of eggs. These be had been selling to dealers, who In rum sent them to cold storage warehouses or to wholesalers. Finally they got to the consumers, usu ally pretty stale and much the worse for handling, through the retail grocer or huckster. When eggs were plenti ful and the wholesalers were well stocked tip. the farmer got little ror ' them. When aro wore few and prices - - -- - - t r" . to consumers were very, very high. the fantier found that his eggs In the warehouses were still In competition with the producer. This mans egg route isn't an esg route exclusively. He sells dressed chickens and other farm produce, too. and when bis egg wagon is going about the driver takes orders for other things which are raised on the farm.

Director Woods of the Maine agricul tural experiment station summarizes bis suggestions as to succesful potato growing as follows. What be says about thorough preparation of the soil Is applicable to that to be used for any crop , Select highly fertile land, so situated that it will suffer as little as possible from either excessive rain or from droughts. Thoroughly prepare the soil and fer tilize liberally. Keep the crop free from weeds and the surface of the soil loose during the whole season. Do not let anything prevent the po tato field from receiving constant care. Vastly more failures In potato grow ing can be traced to neglect of crop than to lack of knowledge. Haw Maay Heaa.
