BEAN SPROUTS MAKE
MOST SAVORY DISH

From Smcdl Soy Beans.
BREEDING TO GET
(Prepared by the United State. Department
There may be nothing new under
the sun. Certainly bean sprouts are
not new to ttie Chinese. To many
American palates, however, they are
unfamiliar, while those who have en
Joyed their delicious flavor and succu-
lent texture in chop suey and other
savory dishes served in Chinese res-
taurants In this country have wished
that they might be commonly used
In American homes. The burenu of
home economics of the United States
Department of Agriculture suggests
that bean sprouts can he successfully
produced in any home from mung or
small soy beans. The American
homemaker can thus ufld to her list
a new food and one of great value,
especially If the s'lprlv of <*rosh vege-
tables Is limited, for bean sprouts are
rich sources of vltumlns as well ns
When the wound area, caused by
rabbits or mice eating the bark from
the trunks of fruit trees, is not more
than two feet long, and the trees are
vigorous and healthy, bridge grafts
may be put in place to revive the con-
nection between root and top. Bridge-
grafting may be done any time befoie
the buds start, and consists of fitting
a smalt branch cut from the top of the
tree, or other trees of similar kind,
and both ends put under healthy bark
at the top and bottom of the wounded
area. The ends of the twig, commonly
called the scion, are cut with a bevel
one and one-half Inches long. All cuts
should be carefully made with a sharp
The lower bevel should be made
first and the scion put over the wound
to determine how long it should be. It
should be made a little longer so the
“spring” will help hold It in place.
The bark is split slightly at the lower
edge of the wound and the lower part
of the scion slipped under the bark. A
similar slit is made for the top of the
scion. Small brads are often used to
hold the ends in place. The be\el snr-
fnces should be put next to tike li'«
wood. Sufficient scions should be put
in place so that they will be from
two to three inches apart all around
the Injured trunk. After the scions
are in place, warm grafting wax
should be painted over all exposed
surfaces. Grafting wux is made b>
melting together four parts of resin,
two parts of beeswax and one part of
tallow. It can be kept warm by plac-
ing the can in a pail of hot water.
The sap moves from the roots to the
leaves In the wood and the elaborated
food moves down in thu live bark im-
mediately next to the wood. Unless
the elaborated food can get back to
the roots, no growth can take place.
If the scions are properly placed they
will furnish a channel for the return
The number of scions to use depends
upon the size of the trees. On tree*
three to five years old three or four
should be used. After they are In
place and covered with wax, earth
may be bunked against the tree to
help protect the scions.—R. S. Mack-

Ilnve you ever attempted to raise
n line patch of luscious strawberries
such as you have seen pictured in
nursery catalogues, and then had so
small a crop that you received only
a good taste? Experiences of this na-
ture caused the horticultural depart-
ment of the Nebraska experiment sta-
tion to see whether new strains could
not he produced which would be more
adapted to Nebraska conditions. A
series of experiments was begun in
1D13, In an attempt to produce new
varieties, by breeding methods, which
would outylekl our standard varieties
and compare favorably with them in
all other desirable qualities. Of SOO
hybrid or crossbred plants as a begin
ning, five strains have been saved other food materials,
for propagation and distribution.
Strawberries are propagated by
runners because they will not breed
true from seed. Seedling plants from
pure seed probably would have shown
as great variation as those from cross-
bred seed, hut the latter kind was
used exclusively In the experiment.
All of the promising hybrids saved
were from crosses in which Enormous.
Senator Dunlap, or Howard 17 wns

The work of producing the hybrid
seed was done In the greenhouse la
winter. Pollen parts were removed
from flowers of several plants of enc.>
standard variety and fertilized wit i
tlie pollen from some other standar I
variety. Each of these 800 crosses
was numbered and the seed planted in
plats outside In the spring, and al-
lowed l" colonize to about 2o plants
j during that year.
Of these 131 of the best were saved
i mid planted in matted rows .K' feet
long the next two years. All but 40
j of the new sorts were eliminated at
that time. These were then grown in.
40 foot matted rows with a row of
i sor. e standard variety between each
row for comparison. At the end of
two more years the fruit from the 10
i highest yielding ones was put In sfnr-
j age to test Its keeping qualities. The
fruit also was ehetnically tested for
I sugar, acid, and solids content In com-
parison with some standard variety.
Five of the new crosses outyielded
Dunlap and other varieties at the Ne
j hmska station, and proved to he
; equally favorable In hardiness. pn»-

It Pays to Give Peach
Orchard Clean Culture
Experience lms shown that It Is ad-
visable and profitable to give the
peach orchard clean culture Ju* as
long as there is room between the
trees to use horsi-drawn cultural tools
for the purpose. Later a. sod may be
allowed to form. The grass or wends
should not he removed from the or-
chard. hut should he cut before ripen-
ing and allowed to remain where they
fall for a mulch.
Fertilization, at the time of planting
the trees, should not be attempted un-
less tin* soil is very poor. In such a
case, the planting would better he de-
layed for a year or two, during whluh
time fertility may lie added by manure
worked Into the soil, or catch crop*
fertilized with phosphorus and potash,
plowed under. In the meantime, there
should he a liberal application of litpe,
unless that element is known to he
present in liberal amount.
In the spring, after the trees have
been set one year, an application of
fertilizer should be made, and the
same repeated annually. This may bo
manure reinforced with acid phos-
phate or finely pulverised raw rock,
worked Into the soil with the cultural
tools; or 1t may he commercial fer-
tilizer strong in phosphorus anfl pot-
ash. The use of lime must not be neg-
lected. Unleached wood ushes are as
excellent source of lime and potash
and. if available, may be used liber-
