that he determines to do his own tan

sections of the country a farmer can
hardly give away the hides he has,
yet leather in small pieces costs him
from $1 to $1.50 a pound. To help
him ' In such emergencies the United
States Department of Agriculture has
Just Issued Department Circular 230,

directions for making leather for vari

With the Issuunce of this publica
tion the department now has for dis
tribution, information on the handling
of hides from the skinning of the

the tlnlshed article such us hurucss,
belts, boots, and shoes. Farmers'
Bulletin 1055, Country Hides and
Skins: Skinning, Curing and Market

tho third time, tells hpw to perform
these operations In the most efllclent
manner. In Farmers' Bulletin 1183,

revised und reprinted, are directions
for making leather last longer. Any,
or all, of these bulletins, Including
the new circular, may be obtained

Agriculture, Washington, D. C.
Suggestions as to Rates.
In the circular just Issued the farmer
who wishes to do tunning on a small
scale may find explicit directions for
making bark-tanned sole and harness
leather, chrome-tanned leather, and
alum-tanned lace leather. But In case
he wishes to have the tanning done
for him he will And suggestions as to
tho usual practices, rates, and meth
ods of payment. It Is the custom
nmong some tanners who do work for
farmers having only a few hides to
tan a hide for half the leather. That
ts, the farmer sends In a hide and gets
back one-half of It marto Into leather,
usually paying tho shipping charges

A list of tanneries that will tan one
or more hides for farmers may be
obtained from tho bureau of chemistry,

IMPORTANCE OF ICING MILK
Product Delivered at Night Often In
Greater Need of Ice Than
During Day Time.
(Prepared fcy the United StatM Department
Somo milk distributors who would
not think of sending out loads of milk
during tho day without Icing do not
Ice the milk delivered by their wagons
to the consumer's doorstep at nlgnt,
giving as their reason that night de
livery Is more rapid. The United
States Department of Agriculture, In
a recent statement, cnlls attention to
the fact that milk delivered to the
consumer's home nt night often Is In
greater need of Icing than that which
Is delivered during the day.
The Important consideration, saya
the department, is the time elapsing
between taking tho milk from the
plnnt until It Is placed In the con
Rumor's refrigerator. Tho fnct that
the dealer delivers It quickly does not
mean that It will reach tho refriger
ator quickly. Ilottles delivered nt the
door usually are not taken In until
after the sun hns been up for some
During the summer months it is
vory Important that milk on delivery
wagons be well Iced. When milk Is
liable not to be tnken in at once, it
should arrive nt tho doorstep nt a
temperature of 60 degrees P. or lower.
If the ordinary open-bottom cases are
used and stacked not more than two
high, It 1b necessary to Ice only the
top row, as the cold air will pass down
to tho other. Ordinances, says tho
department, may well prohibit the de
livery of milk nt a temperature higher
thun 50 degrees F.
Consumers may help by placing a
properly Insulated container on tho
doorstep, In which the mllkmnn mny
put the bottles of milk.
