WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5, 1938. THE MORNING HERALD, HAGERSTOWN, MARYLAND. FIVE THINGS OF THE SOIL By DAN VAN GORDER Jerusalem Art'chokes. As frequently occurs in the wake at most newly introduced crops, there have been many erroneous statements made for and against Jerusalem artichoke. But to date, this root crop appears destined for rather wide use as a source of livestock feed. It is an extremely hardy plant, in fact, the tubers are usually left in the ground over winter and dug in early spring. There are reports that this plant will thrive regardless of droughts, that it does well on thinly worn soils, and that it is an exceptionally loow-costlng crop. And one of the most common claims for it is that a crop of hay and a crop of tubers can bo harvested the same year. Without indulging in unmerited enthusiasm or nude- served criticism, artichokes can now be quite accurately appraised as a farm crop. This plant should not he confused with the Globe artichoke, the delicately flavored vegetable highly prized in many vegetable regions. The Jerusalem artichoke is a species grown for its tubers mainly, not unlike potatoes. In fact, this crop is started similar to potatoes —whole tubers or smaller sections planted in rows 3 to 3y 2 leet wide and spaced about 2 feet apart in the row. Planting should be clone a early in the spring as soil and -weather conditions permit, prefer- EASE YOUR CHILD'S" CHEST GOLD TONIGHT Tonight, at bedtime, rub' his little chest with stainless, snow-white Penetro.

If a crop of hr.\ is wanted, ops should he cut and harvested list before he bloom stage. But lere is '.'here a common error merges. If artichokes are grown or hay, there will be few tubers. Ilther grow the crop for hay alone ir tubers alone, as both are 1m- iractical aims. To harvest artichokes for their hers, allow frost to kill the woody ops back. Then in late fall remove the tops and dig the numer- ius tubers. Some growers prefer 0 let hogs range the field and hereby avoid the labor and expense if digging. Like rutabagas, the Jerusalem artichoke shrivels soon when ex posed to dry air. Therefore, it Is advisable to let the teed supply emain in the ground until spring Dug supplies tor feed may be itored in a cold cellar or buried In uildoor pits until neded.

The augmented staff of Brewer \ Slouffer, local office manager, spent a busy dsy yesterday and look for a busy week.

The eligible will be those who worked during the flrst three quarters of 1937 and the equivalent of eight weeks for a commercial or industrial concern of Maryland eb- ployirig at least eight persons. Every applicant must wait at least three weeks for his check after the date he flrst file- his claim. Two weeks are for the wailing period required by law, and the third must elapse before the benefit for that week becomes due. Those who Hied yesterday cannot be paid earlier than January 24.

They could count upon his unswerving honesty. His name upon a map made it an authoritative document. A good name is no less important today. As you read the advertisements in this newspaper, you see the names of manufacturers and merchants who have builded their business success upon honest products. The very fact that they advertise speaks for their integrity. The store that stays in business has not only to get customers but to keep them year after year. Your good-will is worth too much to be endangered by inferior, unsatisfactory goods. Read the advertisements regularly. They will save you minutes and money. They serve as maps of good merchandise—signed with names which, like the name of Washington, have been tested by many and found completely trustworthy.
