M a s o n C i t y G l o b e - G a z e t t e Green Pastures All Year Around Amazing Discovery Works Wonders With Stock With the feed situation what it is, the discovery made by E. A. Singei- on his farm in the rich Fox river valley of Illinois is more important to livestock: and poultry raisers than ever before. Here is the story: Singer, who owns the largest duck farm in the middle west noticed that the ducks that thrived best, put on most weight, had most beautiful feathers were all g r u b b i n g around in one particular field. Wondering what caused this, Singer had soil from this field analyzed by a leading firm of consulting chemists. Their report was amazing--this soil contained 96 per cent of essential trace minerals. Singer then started to excavate, and hit a 62 foot deep layer of essential trace minerals, washed down through the ages from the surrounding uplands. Digging some of this out, he mixed it with his mash feed and grains to see what the extra minerals would do for his stock. The results were surprising. Worms disappeared, never to infest the animals again With 25 per cent less feed, his stock put on weight faster than ever. His hogs grew silky coats, There was almost no death rate And test kills in a big Chicagc packing plant showed they were the cleanest lot ~of hogs evei stuck. Singer started giving these minerals to other farmers and stockraisers. Soon he was in business. Orders now come from all over the country. If you wan' to get the most out of your feed at this time, it will pay you to get the facts about these remarkable minerals which can be used with your home grains and no supplements. The facts are PREE --no obligation--to see wha YOU MAY BE ABLE TO DO TOO. Just send your name and address on a penny postcard tc SINGER'S EARTH CRUST MIN ERALS,. Dept. 52, BARRING TON, ILL. Mr. Singer will sent you eye-opening literature once. Some Goods for Civilians to Be Made The 1941 market will see the eappearance of a number of lousehold commodities off the manufacturing list in 1943. Miss .ucile Buchanan, county exten- ion home economist, predicts hat shifts in war production vill release manufacturing fa- ilities in some communities. The carcity of supplies has eased a ittle and in areas where the abor shortage is not acute pro- luclion of certain civilian goods s permitted. Two new pieces of enamel- vare are allowed in manufac- uring Quotas this year; drip cof- ee makers and teakettles. Some jalvanized pails, buckets, washtubs and wash boilers also arc lermitted. Furniture buyers may rejoice Because the war production board has announced that springs may be considered an essential metal part of upholstered wood each furniture furniture. But maker will be limited to 12'/ 2 per cent, by dollar value, of the steel he used in 1941. Pre-war model baby carriages will be made for early sale. Restrictions on the amount of metal used in baby vehicles have been removed, although manufacturers are still operating on a quota basis. Pressure cookers for use food preservation are now un- rationed. An estimated 400,000 will be divided between 14- quart and 7-quarl capacity with nearly 3 times as many of the smaller size. The manufacture of glass jars and canning closures for small-mouthed jars is unlimite'd. And zinc and porcelain Mason-type lids will again be'bn the market. There is little difference the value of grinding hay will a roughage cutter or hammei mill except that if feed is ground too fine it may cause impaction The hammer mill may grind fin er than the roughage cutter, es pecially if screens are used on the hammer mill. CHAMPION FARMER--John DeBusk, 17, of Smyth county, near Roanoke, Va., exhibits some of his 23 prize winning Jerseys which helped him win a national dairy 4-H club award for a record increase in production and quality of milk to meet abnormal wartime demands. « Lincoln Soybeans Are First in Yield Tests A new soybean variety that out-yields all others with which .t has been compared and is superior in percentages of oil and protein, has just made its debut in the corn belt. This promising new variety, the Lincoln, in a total of Gl replicated trial experiments, rang- j from Nebraska to Ohio, out- yielded Illini and Dunfield by a comfortable margin. Developed from a white-flowered Mandarin and Manchii cross in 1935 by C. M. Woodworth at the Illinois experimen; station, and selected by L. F. Williams of the United States regional soybean laboratory, the Lincoln has been distributed to the Ohio, Nebraska, Indiana, -Illinois, Missouri and Iowa stations for increase. For this year a limited amount of seed was made available to Iowa farmers in the southern half of Iowa. No more seed is now available anywhere for planting in 1944. SAVE at RAIZES!

Men's Winter Weight Long Sleeve and Leg UNION SUITS O£Y $1.10 Same in Boys, All Sizes. . . 98c Not Much Gain in Heavy Oats Seeding With bom the price of seed oats and dernand for feed oats high, results of 2-year seeding rate tests made by the agricultural experiment station at Iowa State college will bear consideration by Iowa farmers. Those tests, made in 1942 and 1943, indicate that there is no advantage of seeding more than 3 bushels to the acre. Tama oats were seeded on Clarion and Webster soils during the 2 years at rates of seeding ranging from 1 to 4'/z bushels to the acre. In 1942, the best yield was obtained.from a seeding rate of 2V- bushels to the acre. In 1943 the best return was on the 3 bushel rate. In both years there seemed to be no connection between the rate of seeding and the height the oats grew, how they stood up or lodged. Also, there was no apparent connection in 1942 between the rate of seeding and bushel weight of the oats harvested, but in 1943, in a less favorable growing season, the bushel weight increased from 30 pounds at the l'/i bushel rate to 34 pounds for the 4' bushe rate. / The 2nd year the yield an acre from 1 bushel of seed was 6S bushels to the acre. Yields for the other rates were: 1'A bushels seed, TCTbushels; 2 bushels, 72 bushels; 2'/i bushels, 74 3 bushels, 76; 314 bushels, 76; bushels, 74; and 4'« bushels, 73 in yield from seedings of 2V bushels to the acre up to 4V bushels. Dunlap Strawberry One of Best; Gem and Rockhill Offered Iowa g a r d e n e r s selecting strawberry varieties for spring planting will find the Dunlap very satisfactory, according to H. E. Nichols, extension horti- ulturist at Iowa State college. Neither Premier (Howard 17), a arger berry than the Dunlap, or the Blakemore variety, wide- y planted in the state, is as high Hiality. Beaver strawberries are being lanted in the northern part of he state and on the more sandy oils, Nichols said. They produce large berries and yield leavily, but the fruit is rather ightly colored and sour, better adapted to canning than eating aw. Nichols recommends Fairfax and Darrett where quality is wanted in place o£ quantity. Redstar and Catskill are 2 new varieties. Rockhill and Gem, both everbearing varieties, and Gemzeta, a cross between the 2, do much better in northern Iowa than other parts of the state. PHOSPHATE FOR POTATOES Apply phosphate fertilizer to the ground and rake it in before planting potatoes. Iowa State college horticulturists suggest to Iowa gardeners. They advise using about 1 pound per 100 square feet of garden. USE CLEAN FLAX SEED , Only clean, treated flax seed should be planted because weeds are a big hazard in the growing of flax. Only seed that shows a germination of 90 per cent or better should be used. BOBBY SUITS 2-Piece French Gingham Suits Smartly Styled in the Latest Patterns.
