The difficulty which nil have experienced this year in obtaining sugar brings Home the fact that we must now find substitutes for this article whenever possible. Fortunately thin will not be so difficult As one might imagine As Farmers in Many places can easily grow sorghum syrup which can be used As a substitute for sugar to a Large extent. Besides there is a kind of fascination about a Home made lasses a that tickles a Fellows palate and every time he sees sorghum on his plat and makes him wish for More. What is better than Crisp Brown Corn Pone bread and Good sorghum molasses any one who has never enjoyed such a meal has missed the treat of his life. Many old people have often used sorghum for sweetening Tea Cocoa and Coffee. Its substitution for sugar in making cakes pies and puddings sauces and deserts of various kinds would be a re for and Only a Sug Gester c it effect is All that is Nee Casary tor patriotic housekeepers. Averages $180 per acre. There is no reason Why there should not be some Sweet sorghum grown on every farm. It is usually not a very difficult matter to find time enough to grow a few acres of sorghum that will produce enough syrup for the use of the family and leave a surplus for Sale that will be Large enough to More than pay for the Cost of production.

Charles Nafe who lives in Muskogee county Oklahoma planted last year three acres of seeded ribbon Cane from which he made 622 Gallons of sorghum syrup which was an average of 174 Gallons per acre. This syrup he sold readily in barrels at 75 cents per gallon and in jugs at 85 cents. Had he held the syrup for a later Market he could have gotten a much higher Price. However at 75 cents a gallon his crop was Worth $129.50 per acre. When we compare this with the income per acre from Corn Kafir and other similar crops it will be seen that the growing of sorghum Cane for syrup is Well Worth while aside from its value As a substitute for sugar which May be More difficult to obtain next fall than Ever before. For this reason the Industrial department of the m., k. At. Railway is suggesting that Farmers wherever possible Plant a few acres of sorghum Cane for making syrup. In Kansas and Missouri the Early Orange and the Early Amber seem to be the favorite varieties to grow. In Oklahoma and Texas Folger a Early the red Cane the Coleman and the japanese Ane have Given very Good results these mature in the order named in 129 to 150 Days. Sorghum grows fair-1 Ywell on All kinds of land but the Best Flavoured syrup is made from Cane that grows on Clayey soils and thin Uplands. Rich soils produce big yields but such Cane gives a syrup of rather poor flavor. Light Sandy soils give better results. Let every Farmer who can do so Plant a few acres of sorghum Cane and make syrup enough for Home use. This will enable us to save More sugar for our allies and our armies Over the seas. It is a patriotic duty that he owes his country. A a let a want and aet it Foi %
