As a result of eight years' feeding
tests at tho United States Department
of Agriculture poultry yards at Bolts
vlllo, Md. a mash feed has been com
pounded which gives uniform high
ogg production. This mash, which 1ms
been tested for three years, is made
ot 4 per cent bran, 3 per cent mid
dlings, 2G per cent meat scrap, and
06 per lent corn meal. In the oxporl

avoraged from 140 to 155 eggs apjleco
while this mash was fed. Whllo tho
mash seems to bo especially adapted
for Leghorns, It hns given very good
results with Reds. Wyandottes and

How do potatoes grow?
Why do some vines produce many
tubers and others only a few?
Do big pieces produce hotter po
tatoes than small pieces?
When does the tubor begin to form?
' When does moisture have tho moat
effect on tho production of potatoes?
What is tho relation of soil to potato
These aro a few among many ques
tions which have been asked about
the growth and yield of ono of Amor-
lea's largest and most distinctive
crops, and which former obsorvcrs
havo been ablo to answer only In

An Interesting development of tho

Tho experiments showed that appar
ently light soils are bettor for potat

Dr. McCullom denounced the use
of cocoanut oil as a substitute for

not comoete with the cocoanut
cow. He claimed that the health of
children will be seriously endan'
