Pemiscot County Agent lengthwise. Place wet sheet on fabric about eight inches from the end. Then fold fabric over end of sheet and continue folding entire length. Cover wool with paper or turklsh towel to prevent outside from drying too quickly. Let it stand from six to eight hours. Open roll (wool will be thoroughly damp). Check grain lines and smooth out on a flat surface to thoroughly dry. In most fabrics, pressing will not be necessary. Dill Pickles Good dill pickles can be made from green tomatoes as well as from cucumbers. Medium size tomatoes and cucumbers will cure faster and more evenly than the larger ones. Dill pickles are much better when made in a large stone jar and cured for. two or three weeks before being packed. To make dill pickles us: 40 to 50 medium size green tomatoes or cucumbers cup whole mixed pickling spice 1 pint of vinegar l|i cups salt 2 gallons water Fresh or dried dill Use freshly gathered tomatoes or cucumbers. Wash and drain them. Place half of the pickling spice and a layer • of dill in the bottom of a stone jar. Pack the jar with tomatoes or cucumbers to within four or five inches of the top. Put the rest of the pickling spice and a layer of dill on top of them. Mix the salt, vinegar, and- water adn pour over the cucumbers or tomatoes. Use a plate and weight to hold the vegetable under the brine. Let the pickles cure in this solution for two or three weeks, and Keep the pickles under the brine. Take the scum off the brine every day. If you like more color to your pickles, line the stone jar .with comlpetely, wrin<2 j grape leaves before filling it. Many Disture, and fold ! people like to add a few pieces of Something. to Think About By GERTRUDE D. nOLIMAN Gouty Chorus Congratulations to you and Mr. King for the good performance at the State H. D. Council meeting. The chorus will now meet once per month. The date for practice will be decided soon. Mr. King; will continue to work with the group and we hope everyone will be present at the next meeting.

Judging of all entries in open competition and also the H. D. clubs educational booths will be done on Wednesday, September 21. Mrs. Cora Lee Guthridge, clothing specialist, and Miss Blanche Randolph, nutritionist, from Little Rock will be the jdges. Prepare Wool Wool fabrics should be carefully prepared for cutting. The "London Shrunk" method for shrinking wool is acceptable. Straighten cut ends by tearing or pulling a thread and cutting on the grain. Fold fabric lengthwise and baste-stitch straightened ends together. Wet a sheet out excess mo garlic to the pickling spices. To store pickles, take them out of the large jar and pack them into hot sterilized jars. Strain the pickling brine, bring to a boil, and pour it over the pickles. Add y 4 cup of vinegar to each quart of pickles, if you like them more tart. Seal tightly. It's Time To Begin to make plans for work you plan for winter days and evenings. It may be hooking a rug, knitting an afghan, making draperies, curtains or bedspreads. Prepare the late fall garden area at once. Keep cutting flowers to stimulate new growth and more blossoms on all everblooming roses. Plant seed of hollyhock, gaillardia, oriental poppies, and other [ perennial and biennial flowers. Save seed from strong, vigorous, and desirable annuals.

Litem. 8/19-26-9/2-9 UNUSUAL FISH A species of catfish, Synodontis batensoda. found in the Nile and certain other African rivers, has the remarkable habit of normally swimming or floating upside down. Protect Crops' From Ftr* I've already seen part of a bean crop destroyed by lire in a nearby county. A fire lane would have prevented this loss. A ten or twelve foot strip kept clean of vegetation bordering all I public roads or highways should separate the field from the road. This can be done with disk, plow or most any tillage implement. Safety With Sodium Chlorate Sodium chlorate is the chemical most commonly used in this area for Johnson grass control. The chemical Is usually dissolved in water and applied at the rate of four pounds per square rod as a spray. It is impossible to spray this solution without getting some of it j on your clothing. When such solution dries on clothing the tiniest spark will cause it to burst into names, I have recently learned of two cases where farmers have been severely burned due to carelessness with sodium chlorate soaked clothing. Here's one case: The farmer finished spraying his Johnson grass with sodium chlorate and removed the unionalls he'd worn and hung them where his wife would get them and wash them. Later seeing the unionalls hanging and assuming they'd been washed, he put them on to do some welding. A spark ignited his clothing and he was severely burned. Here is a suggestion: Remove clothing worn while spraying and immediately place them in a tub of wa ter. This should remove fire hazard danger. 1 Another precaution is never to] let clothine you are wearing get j dry after they have been wet with sodium chlorate spray solution. Remove them immediately when you stop spraying. Threat to Fall Seeding j There are still areas with fairly j h e a v y grasshopper populations. : These hoppers have spread out in j cotton and beans or hay fields and i are not noticed too much now. New 1 seedings along side such fields can . be beaten off by hoppers as fast ; as they emerge unless control; measures are used ahead of seed- | ing. Border spraying may suffice in these cases.
