OOIKIKH PLAfiS TO BUILD STOREHOUSES Wooden Structures Are Prefer able Because Cheaper and Easier to Keep Dry. ,. ALLOW CIRCULATION OF AIR Dugout" Is Not Satisfactory on AO count of Moisture Foundation May ' Be In the Form of Pillars -or Solid Walls. (From the United States Department el Agriculture.) Sweet-potato storage bouses may be built of wood, brick, hollow die, ce ment or stone. Wooden bouses are preferable, because they are cheaper and easier to keep dry than the other types. It Is difficult to !seep moisture from collecting on the walls of a ce ment stone, or brick house. Where such houses are built for aweet-potato storage they should be lined with lum ber so aa to keep the air In the bouse from coming In contact with the ma sonry walls. It Is best to build sweet potato storage bounce on foundations that allow a circulation of air under them. I The "dugout," or houiie built partly under ground. Is not satisfac tory for storing tweet potatoes In the South, becauxe It Is practically Impos sible to keep this type of bouse dry, and moisture In the storage bouse will cause the crop to rot Foundation of House. a The foundation of the storage bouse may be In the form of pliUrs cr solid walls and should be of such a height that the floor Is about on the level of the bottom of the wagon bed, while the footings should be carried below the frost line or to solid ground. Gird ers 6 by 10 or 8 by 8 Inches In sice are usually placed on the pillars. Where cement brick or stone foundation walls are built they should extend 18 to 20 Inches above the ground level ; and plates 2 to 8 inches thick and 8 to 10 Inches wide should be placed on the wall. ' In using walls for the foundation It Is necessary to provide means for ventilation under the bouse. This can be done by plac ing small windows In the foundation every 10 to 12 feet Even where solid eutslde foundation walls are uaed It la advisable to use pillars for the cen ter supports. The rows of pillars should be not farther apart than 8 to 10 feet - i The Space "between the walls should be left open, because any material used to keep out the cold will absorb moist ure. Many storage bouses have been built with sawdust shavings, or sim ilar material between the walls, but this practice should never be follow ed. Sawdust will take up moisture and when once wet will never dry out Thla moisture win keep the bouse damp and cause the walla to rot The air apace la a good Insulator If the wans are made tight Ventilation Is Important Thorough ventilation Is necessary In a storage house. This Is provided by means of windows, doors, and ventila tors In the floor and through the roof. The openings In the floor around the atove prevent overheating the pota toes near the stove. The bottom of the Cross 8ectlon of 8ms!l Sweet-Potato Storage House, 12 by 16 Feet windows should be within 18 Inches or two feet of the floor. The windows and doors must be made so as to close tightly to keep ont the cold. An win dows should be.made to open from the outside, as the bins wtU Interfere with opening them from' the Inside. Where glass windows are used, outside shut ters are put on, and these should be well padded. Some of. the windows should be made of glass, so as to ad mit light without letting in cold air, as It Is necessary to have light when working In the house and In cold weather the house should not be kept open. , ' Arrangement of Interior. The arrangement of the Interior of the house depends upon the methods of storage used. Some growers store potatoes In -boxes, crates, baskets, or hampers, while others store In bins. The smaller containers are to be pre ferred to bins where It Is practicable to use them,' because they eliminate considerable handling and reduce the amount of decay. Many growers store In the hampers that are to be used for marketing the potatoes. .
