There was a pressing need behind
the letter from Jiunes Dunn, who lives
ten miles from Convent, I.n tho nenr

fuel iileohol from frozen potatoes unit
spoiled fruits, nnd If he could, were
there any hooks on the subject. The
requests run the wholo range or farm
operations. Some wish to know how
to treat scale, others desire facts on
hog raising. Hooks giving Information
