Phone J44 Smoked Meat* Should be |fe*finf Ster*d hi a fti? flat* **d Country cared hams and bacons should be stored in a dry place In order to prevent moulds from forming on the meat, and to protect It from damage by the skipper fly. Wrapping hams In parchment paper and then covering with a muslin bag so as to partially ex- clnde the air and light was found to be the most desirable method of storing, according to experiments conducted by the United States Department of Agriculture. This method of storage results in a smaller shrinkage than when similar hams are hung in a dry dark place without wrapping. It also has the added advantage of protection from the skipper fly. Hams which were stored In air tight packages were spoiled when taken from storage at the end of seven months. Hams which were not protected and which hung in the light had considerable mold on them at the end of seven months, but when this was washed off the meat was found to be sound. The odor and taste of these bams, however, were not as desirable as those which were partially wrapped and stored In the muslin bag. Burying smoked hams or shoulders In oats or crushed rock salt did not give good results. Meat stored In oats had a musty smell after storage and during cooking. Those covered with crushed salt of Seed Every farmer wants a nnlforin stand of corn each year. "The primary factor affecting a stand of corn Is the vitality of the seed. The difference in yield produced by good seed and poor seed is not fully realized by many farmers. During the past eight years our experiment station and the extension service have been conducting numerous tests to determine the relation between quality of seed and yield. It has been found eases that may certain dry rot dis- be carried on seed which appear sound and healthy. These diseases either kill the germ or weaken it so that under adverse conditions the plant cannot develop. In a test covering fire years it was found that nearly disease free seed secured by ear testing produced a crop which yielded on the average five bushels per acre more than "farmer's planter box" corn. In many cases the difference In yield was as great as 12 bushels, indicating that some seed samples are badly diseased. Early selected seed on the aver- agi; will yield more than late selected seed because of stronger vitality and less disease. In 1929 tht' average difference in yield between these two classes of seed was 2.7 bushels per acre and the greatest difference was 16.4 bushels. Evidently It does not pay to take a chance on seed corn. EAST LIBERtV I**! Metfioant We had a splendid attendance and a good program at the church night last Friday evening, the committee deserves praise for their good work. Dr. Stanley Jones, ttte great missionary, will give Passion Week addresses every day this week over the N.B.C. network from 11 to 12 central standard time. The Scripture reading until May 11 will be Psalms 1-41. Next Sunday Is Easter. Let us make It a great day In our church. The pastor Will hold a baptismal service and will receive members into the church. Sermon subject, "The Resurrection." Church school at 11 with a fine lesson on "The Significance of the Resurrection." Anyone is welcome at these services. You are Invited to make this your church home. . . ... ,. „. „ ,_i Seed corn may be tested by l°° k " P .!° m _ e ° f l *!" a "", n A!,r several methods such as the saw- dry, tough and excessively salty. The most satisfactory size of hams to store, the tests showed, Is from 14 to 18 pounds. Proper trimming of the hams is more Important than shape. Both long cut and short, square topped hams kept the best condition. Poorly trimmed hams are not attractive and the rough edges and tags are too salty to be palatable. Mr. McDonald suggested leaving a fat covering over the lean meat. Tells of Experience in 4-H Lamb Club liy Gerald Lea On the first of April I picked out five Iambs, one ewe and two rams for the breeding class, and two wethers for the fat market aheep class. I let these lambs run a dry lot and started feeding .them corn, oats, and alfalfa hay. , I exhibited the ewe and two Yam lambs at the Mills County Fair and took first place on the ewe and first and second places on the rams. Later I sold one ram to a local breeder and the other one I shipped to market; the ewe I kept to put with my flock. The wethers I took to the Ak- Sar-Ben Stock Show at Omaha, and was awarded a sixth and a thirteenth place. After the show these Iambs were sold at auction bringing a little more than on tlio open market. After all expenses were paid I had a nice profit and my premium money and experience besides. I wish to state that I have been In 4-H club work for the past eight years and have learned a lot from my projects besides making some money. All the boys of •club age who are not enrolled in •4-H club work do not know the opportunity they are missing. If you are in doubt ask any boy who is or has been in the club. dust box. the water tester, the ran doll, the modified rag doll or In soli mixed with sand. The Important thing Is to actually test enough ears each spring to get an index of the entire seed supply. Testa show that If all seed was gathered at. the same time and kept In a dry place a test ot about 100 cars will give a fair index of the quality of the seed. Seed showing not less than 96 per cent strong germination and less than two per cent dead kernels when treated will yield as well as nearly disease free seed according to yield tests. If you are not equipped to test your own seed why not send a sample to the Iowa State college seed laboratory at Ames, It will cost .you only 25c and you will then know about your seed. Simply remove six kernels from each rm Bureau offTce vern or mall to Ames. Rid Calves of Lice Lice on a calf's body will decrease the rate of gain. If the weather is warm enough wash the (.•aIf with a coal tar dip. Repeat once a week for three or four weeks. In cold weather use Py- rethum or Derris powder dusted into the hair and in places where lice are found. Ground Sabilla seed, one part, to sulphur, six parts, is also a good treatment.
