STORE WINTER SUPPLIES.
A family of five, iucluding two adults
an 1 three children under 12 years of age,
under ordinary living conditions, should
have stored for each month of the w in
ter season the following food suphlies:
1 bushel Irish potatoes;
other rdot vegetables such as carrot?,
turnips, and parsnips; 25 quart cans
of other vegetables; and 20 quarts of
canned truit and preserves. These fig
ures are based on estimates by tlie
United States Department of Agricul
ture, which adds that most of this
should come from the perishablt pro
ducts of the many home gardens this
With these figures as a basis, it is
thought that almost any family can cal
culate its requirements, taking into
consideration the length of the winter
season in any given locality. Thus, in
the South, where food crops mav be
grown in the fall, the winter allowance
may be less than for the far Worth,
whero one must count on supplies for
several months lorger.
T^-.re is still time, says the depart
ment, for a final drive in canning, pre
serving, and drying. In using dried
vegetables, it may be assumed that a
given quantity of dried vegetables is
equalled to four times its bulk of canned
vegetables; that is, % of a quart of dry
string beans when soaked over night
is approximately equal to one quart
