Dry Potatoes for Food.
Consul Frank 8. Hannah sends a re
port to the Department of Commerce
and Labor relative to tome recent ex
periments In the drying of potatoes
under the auspices of the German Im
perial Interior Department, which
may offer a new field for farmers.
The potatoes are reduced by this proc
ess to about one-quarter of their orig
inal weight, and can be kept In a
good condition in this compressed
form for an Indefinite length of time.
The military authorities have made
thorough experiments with this prod
uct and have become convinced that
Its nutritious value Is fully equal to
that of corn, and that the dried pota
toes can take the place of one-third
of the former ration of oats. The fact
that the potatoes are reduced to one
fourth of their original weight brings
about a corresponding reduction in the
price of freight, so that It will pay to
grow more potatoes than has former
ly been the case. Michigan Fanner.
The Plain Parmer.
Speaking of farmers' Institutes, one
man says: "I would like to know
what 1s In the mind of the working
farmer In felt boots, who sits In the
back seat." He adds: "A few people
who are good talkers praise the work,
but what about the silent ones who
listen and say nothing?"
The Rural New Yorker, comment
ing on these statements, says: "The
Institute speakers can not do any
wiser thing than to learn how to en
courage and keep just this class of
farmers. The retired farmers and suc
cessful men who make up a good
share of the audience are well able to
take care of themselves. It Is pleas
ant to entertain them, and their
praise gives a man a thrill of satis
faction. It Is a truer service to the
State, however, to gain the confidence
of the plain farmer and help him."
Live) Stock. mm4 Prosperity
Live stock Is the chief element of
agricultural prosperity. It Is the foun
dation upon which both the pretent
and future profits are established. We
boast of our great wheat and corn
crops, and we have a reason for so
doing, but If we depend upon them
alone we rob ourselves and our chil
dren by selling off the fertility ,of the
soil with each year's crop. For many
years the soil will continue to yield
their crops, but they will get poorer
and finally fall unless they are fed.
How much better to make your farm
richer Instead of poorer; to get the
benefits of the Increased crops during
your own lifetime and then leave a
rich and valuable farm to your chil
dren after you have done with It
Live stock will do It as nothing else
can. Kansas Farmer.

Working horses from grass has
never been our way, although a great
many do It and keep their teams In
very good fix. When there Is only
light work for a few days, our horses
have the run of good pasture when
not In the harness, but most of the
time they are In the barn, where they
get grain and bright hay three times
a day. It seems to us they are better
able to stand hot weather when on
a hay ration, with grain, than when
they get grain and green grass for
their roughness. It probably does no
more harm to a horse to sweat than
ft does a person. It Is usually certain
that whea a horse Is sweating freely
he Is taking bo hart, but a "grass
sweat" eaa be avoided by feeding hay

Partners Moat Watch the Cms.
In order to determine what elements
of plant food are deficient In a soil.
It Is necessary to tarefully study the
growing crop. Many farmers seem to
be of the opinion that a chemical
analysis of the soil will show the
amount of plant food contained there
in. This, however. Is a mistaken Idea
The chemist can only determine ap
proximately the amount of nitrogen.
phosphoric acid and potash In a soli,
without specifically showing what pro
portion of these elements can be taken
up by the growing planL A large per
centage of these elements Is not avail
able to plant food. Hence the neces
sity for them In an available form.
We must turn. then, to the crop, and
by watching It closely during its
growth and by a careful examination
when matured, see whether the soli Is
deficient In plant food and what ele
ments are lacking.
Car of Settloa- llesie.
When sitting the hens in order to
keep the lice from bothering them, a
good plan Is to fill the nest boxes
with wood shavings, preferably those
that have some odor about them. Ce
dar shavings are excellent and so are
cedar twigs, and the hens will appre
ciate the nest of such materials. Lice
are a great drawback to a hen when
she Is on the nest, and many times
they compel the sitter to leave her
nest when she does not desire, and It
there Is anything the pou'tryman can
do to keep the sitting hen comfortable
he will be amply repaid for It In the
end. The shavings are Inexpensive
and are easily destroyed. They do
not pack hard In the boxes rwd are
quite comfortable for the hen. Try
some of them when sitting a hen and
see bow useful they really are. Rural
A. Crier y Spray.
Celery blight can be controlled by
spraying with ammonlcal carbonate of
copper. To make this, dissolve 3
ounces copper carbonate In a pint of
ammonia, and add 25 gallons of water.
To make copper carbonate, dissolve 5
pounds copper sulphate (blue vitrol)
in 5 gallons of water, also 6 pounds
carbonate of soda In 6 gallons of
water. Mix the two solutions slowly,
stirring well. Let the mixture stand
until next day to settle, after which
pour off the liquid. Pour on 10 gal
Ions of water, let stand until next
day, and repeat the operation, after
which strain and dry t.e blue powder,
which Is the copper carbonate.
The Flavor of Batter.
It has been a generally accepted
theory among teachers and writers on
dairy subjects that the production of
good butter necessitates the develop
ment of a certain amount of acid In
the cream, for two reasons to de
velop a desirable flavor and to Ira
prove the keeping quality. Recent In
vesttgatlons by the United States De
partment of Agriculture Indicate, how
ever, that butter made from pasteur
Ized sweet cream has better keeping
qualities and remains free from ob
jectionable flavors for a longer time
than butter made from sour cream.
Dry Farralatr Fralt.
Dry farm fruit promises to yield an
abundant crop this year In Colorado.
according to E. U. Parsons, of Parker,
Colo., one of the most successful dry
farmers In that State. Mr. Parsons
created much Interest In the subject
of fruit growing on non-Irrigated land
when be described his orchard In an
address at the third dry farming con
gress at Cheyenne, and has promised
to send an exhibit of bis dry farm
horticultural products to the Inter
national exposition of dry farm prod'
ucts when the dry farming congress
holds Its fourth session at Billings,
Mont, October 26, 27 and 23 next.
ProBt la Sheep.
There is one thing the farmer can
not afford to overlook in sheep rais
ing, and that is thrift. Thrift means
health, gain In quality, quantity and
productiveness, the elements out of
which the profits are derived. It must
be the first object of the owner to
keep his sheep in thriving condition.
The quality of the wool, as well as
the quantity, and the general product
iveness of the flock make this require

Dees return to their hives In a di
rect line when they have been carried
away and liberated, up to two miles.
This has been supposed to be due
either to the sense of sight or of smell,
but ths experiments of Gaston Bonnier
have proven that neither algbt nor
smell can serve the purpose and that
bees have a special "sense of direc
tion." This sense Is not In the anten
nae. Whoa to Cat Craaa for Hay.
Good hay can only be made by cut
ting the grass as soon as It heads out,
sad clover as soon ss the beads are
in full bloom. It Is a mistake to wait
until the beads turn brown. There is
nothing In the theory that sunshine
alone makes hay. Air Is as much a
factor as sunshine. Curing mainly In
the wlnrows and hay cocks Is now
practiced by many of our best bay spe
cialists. Bplewd Carroata.
