THE COST OF PEACE

sit in the mud impatiently for two
or three years.
Americans, most nervous race so

Now quit saying that you don't get

Treating Potatoes for Scab
The most effective method is to
treat the potato before it is cut. Uae
one pint of formaldehyde to 30 gal

hour. Spread out so they will dry,
and then cut to plant.

Now is the time to poison the
gopher, just as he begins to work. A
small supply of gopher poisoning may
be had at the Farm Bureau office.
Use any poison that is effective,
usually strychnine in some form is
best. Some farmers have used the
