Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 25, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25, Win PAGE THREE THAT SON-IN-LAW OF PA'S By Wellington \iO% 15 RECWUSE HE'S 2^ pOJNDSJJNDER;,! - j�ur-i>ft 4!) degrees. The air should bo slightly moist, and it the floor .of soil, so much the bettor. Many of the roots, like carrots and beets will keep very much better if they are covered with sand or dry soil. BuiHers' sand is ideal for this purpose. Pitting Outside The storage pit is not a "pit" in the strict sense of tlic word, but an earth-covered pile. The first essential is that it be well drained. This does not necessarily mean that it must be on a hillside. Any level spot will usually serve, if drainage is secured by means of the trench on either side of the pile. Mark off an area five feet wide and any desired length. Dig out the soil from this to a depth of about eight inches, placing it well back from the edge of the space. In this shallow trench place a layer of straw, and on, this pack the roots so that they will come to a neat pile about four feet high. Different kinds of vegetables may bo placed in the same pit, if necessary, but should be separated by a thin partition.of straw. Cover the pile with several Inches of coarse straw, and then on the> top invert .a V-shaped trough, which should protrude ffom each end of the pit to pro-Tide ventilation. Cover the whole heap with about three inches of loose earth. About the end of November either add another covering of straw and another covering of earth, or increase tlio covering of earth to oight'"inches. It may be advisable, in oxposfed places, to give a third covering of straw and earth. Vegetables in Detail Potatoes should be thoroughly dry before being stored. It is best to put them in the storage room in the cellar. Partial or complete outside storage is the most successful way of handling cabbage. Place ip piles in the garden and cover with dry leaves. Early in the winter bring them in and pile in the bins or on shelves. Anoth- er method is to stack and cover them with a large quantity of leaves. Celery may be kept outside in trenches er method is to stack and cover them with a large quantity of leaves. The or inside in boxes, with the roots covered with soil. In the latter instance keep in an airy, dark part of the room. Beets, turnips, carrots, parsnips and salsify may be stored in' the same way as potatoes. They should bo covered with sand, however. V/hen boxes are used, a little damp sand should bo placed in the bottom; then alternate layers of vegetables and sand. When piled on the floor a covering of sand is generally sufficient. In drying beets, the tops should be twisted off, instead of being cut/with a knife and "bled." Onions should not be stored in the attic when thoroughly dry and well cured. They keep well in slat boxes or shallow trays. Squash and pumpkin require a slightly higher temperature. They should be placed in barrels or boxes and packed in straw or excelsior somewhere near the furnace. They may also be kept in the attic. Ono of the best methods of ripening green tomatoes is to wraj) each fruit in paper and place it In a closed box or drawer located in a warm room. Another method is to pull the vine before, there arc si.i!iis of injui'y from frost, I and suspend it from the ceiling of a warm roiliit or the cellar. A dark place is preferable, with a temperature of from 50 to 05 degrees. Appl� Storage One of the essential points in �uc-cessful apple storage is to see that,the fruit reaches the cellar In the most favorable condition. It should be mature. After being picked, the apples should be cooled Immediately. This helps to prevent skin diseases which are otherwise likely to develop )n storage. Box or barrel storage is the customary thing for apples. 1ST CZECHS AI PARIS Basel, Oct. 25,-At a conference of the party leaders of the Austrian lower house, held recently Stransky one of the Czech leaders, declared that in future all negotiations between the Austrian government and the Czechoslovak governments must bo carried on with the Paris organization.
