Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - June 16, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia A mtg a grow Sweet potatoes. That they thrive Only in the South u now an exploded fallacy. I while the Sweet potato is of a tropical nature and is generally considered b. Vegetable to be grown Only in the South experiments by the department of agriculture show that it will grow,1 and grow Well As far North As Michigan. A the ridges for planting Sweet Pota a toes should be three to five feet apart and the plants about fourteen inches apart in the Row. Cultivate sufficiently to keep the surface soil Loose and free from weeds and the vines will soon cover the ground after which no cultivation will be necessary. In the warmer parts of the country the seed is not bedded but is Cut in Small pieces and planted in the ridges instead of plants. After the plants come up and begin to make vines freely pieces of the vines Are removed and used As cuttings for planting additional areas the cuttings taking Root and growing the same As plants grown from seed. In this manner three and four plantings Are made the last being As late As the Middle of july. If a Rainy spell be How 8weet potatoes Yokow. Selected for making and planting the cuttings very few will fail to grow and an excellent crop May be produced. In the North Sweet potatoes Are dug As soon As the vines Are nipped by Frost. In the South the potatoes Are allowed to remain in the ground until a convenient time for handling them and in Florida or Texas they Are frequently left until required for use. Sweet potatoes should be dug on a Bright drying Day when the soil is not too wet. On a Small scale they May be dug with a spading Fork and great care should be taken that the roots do not become bruised or injured in the process of handling. It is desirable that the roots should lie exposed for two or three hours to dry thoroughly after which they May be placed in a warm Well ventilated room to cure for several Days. The1 proper temperature for curing Sweet potatoes is from so to 90 degrees f. And 43 or 53 degrees f. Afterwards. A Small crop May be eur a around the Kitchen stove and later stored in a dry room where there will be no danger of their becoming too cold. Sweet potatoes should be handled As Little As possible especially after they have been cured. Hum of the hive. Remember that bees crawl up instead of Down. Send your Honey to the Market in As attractive a form As possible. Stand at the Side of the hive and not in front of it while handling your bees. A be sure that your bees have a Good prolific italian Queen and the ant3 will not bother them. The Honey extractor saves the bees much time in comb building and thus the beekeeper can secure More Honey. Improve your bees by always rearing Queens and increasing from colonies that have gathered the most Honey. A Large number of Farmers Are in. Aged extensively in Honey production. Some of them ship Over a car of Honey each season. Heartsease was formerly not Worth considering As a Honey Plant because of its Scarcity but of late years it has become Plentie and now it is Worth Many dollars same with dandelion. Honey and Wax were never in greater Del and than at the present time and Bce keeping bids fair to take a higher rank among the productive industries than has hitherto been accorded it. The present improved system of management requires that hives should not stand too near each other. There should be at least six feet Between them and ten would be a preferable distance. A Bee expert gives away this Little secret if bees Are kept in a shed the crosses of them can be handled without fear of being stung. A Bee shed ought to be Long enough to give at least two feet to each hive and sufficiently wide and High so that one can work comfortably Back of the Row of hives. It should open preferably to the East so As to get the morning air. Cleaning and casing Honey must be done in a Well lighted place and a Large Bench or table provided for it. The shipping cases to receive the Honey should be placed so As to face the Packer and should be arranged so no propolis from scraping will Fly into them. It is desirable to have several cases for each Grade on the Bench so that Honey of the same Shade and finish May go into the same Case. Devoted to duty. A Are you Ever coming to bed a he called out.

Be Wise stick to farm. It stands for everything att Rativo. Wholesome and profitable. For the restless boy or girl who wants to go away from the farm and get out into the big world to do something no better bit of Earnest Reading can be found than this extract from the new Fork Independent. A the new farm children a it says a live a third dispensation. The sciences began to take hold of the land at least fifty years ago but there was an of Clearing necessary. The transition period was protracted mainly because the land was already in Possession of u race of Farmers that must die off. Quot the agricultural College applied the sciences to tillage and to crops and to animal life on the farm Twenty five years ago. It was slow work not Only to awaken the Farmer but to investigate discover and then to apply. The age is now rapidly falling into the hands of men who Are Alivo to the great fact that production Lias never yet approached its maximum. The Orchard has All this while thanks to maths and caterpillars become More and More an entomological Laboratory. Gradually it has came about that not a thing can be grown on the land without a fight. This has not by any Means been a permanent loss but has wakened a spirit of scientific examination and determination to master conditions. The Microscope and the Crucible Are As necessary today As the plow and the Hoe. The farm boy is not without stimulus nor is he without interesting conditions rather it will now take the brighter boys to do the farming. A the development of farm machinery and the application of new forces on the land have gone on at the same time. In every department of the Home in the House As Well As in the barn machinery takes the place of men and the help problem is now driving us to a still More Complete age of mechanism. A there is no lot on Earth so enviable today Quot As that of an american farm boy or girl. They have room fresh air Beautiful surroundings while the arts and sciences Are involved in their work and isolation is absolutely abolished. A nothing can be gained any longer by quitting the farm. It stands for everything that is attractive wholesome and profitable but at the same time it stands for the new and the stimulating. Country life cannot be made Dull unless it wilfully severs itself from advantages that Are freely Eastern store of Virginia produce Exchange. Incorporated january 26, 1900. Ren t. Gunter president.

A i went even further than that i gave him the grand in ton Star. Wild Mustard great pest. Not useful like its eatable cousins but an indefatigable menace. About As troublesome a Weed As the Farmer the world Over has to Deal with is the Charlock or wild Mustard. It is prolific in the extreme and unlike its Black and White cousins is not Only worthless but harmful. About the ouly Way to control it is to use a Spray up Bayer to destroy weeds. Made up of either a 2 per cent solution of Copper sulphate or a 15 per cent solution of Iron sulphate. The Quantity needed is from fifteen to Twenty Gallons to the acre and american Grain growers go after it with a sort of watering cart. It is particularly obnoxious in wheat Fields not Only choking growth but making the harvesting of the crop a matter of great difficulty. Creek an Ideal farm hand. A Wideawake Farmer noticed that Hia Creek if dammed at a certain place would produce a six foot Waterfall. He built a dam and put in a water wheel a $300 Turbine that yielded Twenty five horsepower. Over the water wheel he built a powerhouse in which he placed a Dynamo for the water wheel to run. The electricity was wired 1,700 feet to the farm build Ings. Then he put his electricity to work in every possible place about the premises. He heated and lighted the House did the cooking and the washing and ironing did the sweeping and dusting beat eggs and at three different speeds too turned the ice Cream Freezer and in summer ventilated the House with fans. Now with a vacuum milking machine he milks Twenty cows two at a time drives the Cream separator churns pumps water into every room in the House and into the stall of each horse and cow drives lathes and drills in a workshop drives a circular saw to Cut cordwood and drives an ens Ilage Cutter. It pays to be up to Date. The Money making mule. The mule is a slave animal. At two years he is ready to do considerable work and will from that age on make a profit Over and above his feed and expense Bill in the value of his labor and at the same time be growing More valuable until four or five years old at which age he will command the top of the Market in his age class.
