I'iKTHOIT, Auk. 11. The automo

mistic prediction made by officials of

Where months ago there existed a
feeling of uncertainty, if not fear for
the, future of the entire industry, today
there l nothing- but a feeling of se
curity, of confidence In the future, and
the courage to face It.

because of careless or improper meth
ods of storing potatoes. It Is well to
plan early for a suitable storeroom
for the potato crop.
fse of a cellar is suggested. It
should be made ill a dry or well drain-j
cd place and should be built under-
ground. The walls should be brick, ;
concrete, or stone. The ceiling should
lie nlastcred If a building is above it. !
t,u,!tn make a dead nir-Hpace between thei
plaster and the floor. Apertures
through' which to empty the potatoes
should be left at intervals in the sides j
of the wall. It is well to have a drive- !
way through the center with the bins
on eaeh side. j
Ventilation ami temperature are the
most Important considerations in'
building a storeroom. ' Thirty-five to j
4(1 degrees is a good temperature, if!
possible air should be lead through a )
deep underground drain-tile into the;
cellar. Its length should be sufficient
to warm the air a little i "inter. The
outside end of the tile should be cover- ,
cd to prevent the entrance of vermin.
A ventilator on the roof will remove
A raised board floor should be in
each bin with a ventilator running
from it tii through the tubers at in
tervals. Have double doors at the en
trance and the shoots. The room
should be kept dark. A reliable, ther
mometer should always hang in the.
cellar. If the temperature gets too low
esc an ordinary oil stove. It Is folly
to have potatoes freeze to save a gallon
