BANK OF i 1)0 When shipments were interrupted by the war, it was estimated that there was enough Potash on hand in the United States to pro vide two and three per cent Potash in mixed fertilizers for this spring's trade. Some manufacturers had more than enough for these percentages. Since then minor sources of Potash have been fully utilized, and additional shipments from the usual source are still being received. The supply is below normal, but this need not prevent farmers securing some Potash in their fertilizers, nor should it lead farmers to decide not to use fertilizers. There is no reason to return to the out-of-date goods without Potash, although some authorities may try to "wish" them on us. We have not used enough Potash in the past. The largest annual import of Potash was only one-seventieth of the Potash taken from tht soil by our 1914 com crop nnd only one-fifteenth of the Potash lost every year in drainage water. Spring crops use from two to ten times as much Potash as Phos phoric Acid. Get as much Potash in the fertilizer as possible. A few firms are offering to furnish from four to ten per cent. There is no substitute for Potash, It may be harder to get just now, but POTASH PAYS.

MARKETING EGGS Forty-five million dollars a year is the annual egg loss of the country due to faulty methods of handling on the farm where eggs are not collecteo frequently and marketed regularly. Because nests are not kept clean and through allowing males to run wltn the hens in the warm months after the breeding season. A fertile eg will start to hatch or develop the em bryo if kept at a temperature above 80 degrees. If kept at a temperature 100 degrees or above for three or four days blood will form. From this it can be seen that in the hot summer time it is essential to gather the eggs once, or better twice a day. Keep them in a cool place and market thei.. once, and still better twice a week. Keep the nests clean and provide otn. nest for each tour hens, urocerymen keeping eggs on display in the hot summer time? find in three or foiu days that the eggs spoil. Such eggs are known as "heated eggs". If maTo do not inn with the hens the eggs a re lict fertile and these blood rings o not appear. The advantages of infertile eggs for the market are: The eggs do not iiateh, do not develop germs, with stand he:it, stand shipment well, easi ly' preserved, slow to decay, best rt cold storage, cost less, male birds not required, and are produced just as of- on as fertile eggs. A careful study of preventable 'osses on the fa mi shows the follow :ng: 2 per cent hiss on account of be ing dirty; 2 per cent on account of breaks: 5 per cent on ncemmt of chick development: ." per cent on account of shrink or rjncr held: 2'i per cent on account of being rotten: '-j per cent on account of mould or bad flavor.

(Prepared by the fnlt.-.l Stat-, Depart- I 0f the largest number of farmers is M, J7i Af:k'"lturB-) , the creamery. This furnishes a con- f,r ,? L f heun butter from the L tant d,.mand for c w?ther , Z ". . " excl'a"d large or small quantities. There are fo, groceries at the country store. On three ways of gerti cream to th(J packages, and Irregular supply, the prices received for this butter are very low. Bulletins explaining how tho housewife can make good butter and how to put it into attractive packages may be obtained without cost by ap plying to the department of agricul ture, Washington. 1. C. Purchasers of butter like to buy from persons who can furnish it tlio year round. Usually the market for farm butter is oversupplied (lining the summer season. This is because cows generally freshen in the spring and thus furnish a greater supply of butter throughout the summer, when grass and green feed are abundant, than at any other time of the year. For thia reason the price of butter is lowest in summer and highest in winter. To take advantage of these conditions farmers should have their rows fresh en in the full: this would tend to equalise the supply of butter through out the year. In many cases no great effort Is made to find a good market for the farm butter. Too often nearby gro cery stores nre regarded as the only market possibility. Hoarding houses, women's clubs, hotels and restau rants, and private families, not only in the home towns but in surrounding towns, should be canvassed and a sam ple of the butter exhibited. In this way a good market for farm butter may be secured ff the butler is of good quality and can be supplied reg ularly. The frequency of delivery will de pend upon the demand of the trade. MARKET BUTTER IN Often the farmer or some member of his family can without inconvenience deliver the butter to t fie purchasers. When those who have butter to si 11 can not deliver it to distant purclias us they should investigate th.- oppor tunities offered by the par-.el post service. Cream obtained by runninj; the. warm whole milk through a cream H-parnter is a viy enmenient form i Mi-.ich to market the product of cows. Less equipment and labor are required for tins method than if but ter is made. For handling r":nn it is nerssary to have a separator, shipping cans', some appliances l r heating water to wash utensil, and some means for cooling the cream. Cream if not pre perl y taken care of Is easily spoiled. Directions for tak ing the proper care of milk and cream are described in a circular which is sent free by the department of agri culture. Since the fat is the most valuable part, cream is usually sold according to the pounds of fat it contains. For determining the percentage of fat In cream the Pabcock test, which is a simple process, 1b used. Small sam ples of cream are tested and the per centage of fat shown is multiplied by the weight of the cream from which the, sample is taken. For example, if a sample of cream from a can con taining 40 pounds Is found to test 25 per cent, the pounds of butterfat are found by multiplying 40 by 0.25, which Is ten pounds. The persons buying the cream generally do the sampling and testing. Hotels, restaurants, railroad eating houses, soda fountains, and ice cream manufactories offer markets for fresh sweet cream. Such markets require a high class product of uniform qual ity and a dependable supply delivered at regular intervals. This makes It necessary for farmers who supply such markets to have good transporta tion facilities. The market for cream within reach ! ! I I I I I I I I I ! II i i I! A toad of Cream at a Southern Creamery, j creamery or shipping point: 1. Each farmer may haul his own cream. 2. Farmers in a community may take turns in hauling their cream. 3. A man may be employed to haul all the c-rtatn regularly and each farm er may pay for this service according to t lie amount of cream he sells. The t!,ird method Is on the same principle as the rural free delivery of mail matter. I'nder this system the hauler at regular intervals comes to the farmer's door, gets the cream, and takes it to the creamery or shipping point. The cream is weighed, sam pled, and poured into a carrying can in the wagon. The samples and rec ords of weights are sent to the cream ery. Routes may be established close to the creamery, and the cream deliv ered direct, or they may be estab lished at distant points and the cream delivered to a central station for ship ping lo the creamery. Sttbroutes may radiate from points on the main route ami thus cream can be collected from a wide area. In coninimiiUes in which Interest In selling cream is Just being aroused nnd where there is not cream enough produced to pay for having it collected each day. the cream can be kept from day to day and collected twice a week In winter and three times In summer. WhtTe this Is practiced the farmers must use ice to keep the cream as cold as possible, or place the cans in spring or well water. I'nless extra care is taken to produce the cream in ihe most cleanly manner, and unless it is ATTRACTIVE PACKAGES Kept thoroughly cold at all times, this method is not advisable. The- shipping of cream compels the fanner lo have a separator. The cot ot the separator is often discouraging to the man who has only two r three cow:;, nnd who, but for this expense, could mII a small cmeant of cream. This, however, need not prevent the purchase of :t yeparaior, as some com panies sell iheir machines for a small cash pan;e!it, the remr.int'er to be paid in niorthly or liimcnthiy install ments. This enables the farmer to let the cews pay for the separate:-. Again, in the ease of several farm ers living near one another, one sepa rator, ct nt ra'.ly located, can be used by all. Tho central separator offers a splendid opportunity for land owners to encourage their tenants to keep cows. Even if the tenants have only small quantities of milk, it svill bring more money in the form of cream than if the milk were churned nnd the butter sold. Carrying the milk to the separator Is also less trou ble than making the butter. In sections where cream can be mar keted, routes operated In some such way as described are to be commend ed, provided the cream Is produced and handled properly, as they enable the farmer to procure a steady cash income from his cows by providing a market at his door Early Start for Strawberries. Strawberry plants, like fruit trees, should be set at the earliest possible moment in spring. The variety select ed should be one that has proved good In your locality; if you experiment with new varieties let it be on a small scale. Remember, too, that the vari ety recommended as a good shipper is not the best for home use. Some of the most delicious berries are too soft to stand shipping, but cannot be ex celled for home consumption. Incubators Always Ready.
