Bellefonte, Pa.
Banks gather the scattered
money of a community and make it
available for use. :
If each one of our depositors carried
his balance in his pocket it would be
of little use in any enterprises re-
quiring large capital.
Thus banks are an indispensible part
in the machinery of modern business.
A dollar alone is of small account.
Multiplied many times it becomes a
potent force.

In last week’s items it was stated

—In ordering seeds, whether field
or garden, be sure the seed is true to

percentage of the seed before you buy.
Reliable dealers give this information.
—If you have a hotbed a number of
perennial flowers can be started now
so that they will bloom next season.
Some of those that can be seeded now
are columbine, Shasta daisy, larkspur
and single hollyhocks.

on time. Experiments at The Penn-
sylvania State College show that me-
dium applications of any form of lime
once in each rotation are more eco-
nomical than heavier applications at
longer intervals.
—Prospects for the sheep industry
in 1925 appear favorable. The world
wool outlook and the prospective meat
situation in this country promise
prices for 1925 at least on a par with
those of 1924. There does not appear
to be any immediate danger of over-
production, as the increase in the num-
ber of sheep has as yet been only
—Many people are wondering what
to do with the ash pile this spring.
If the garden soil is heavy it can be
made lighter ‘and more porous by
spreading the ashes over the garden
and turning them under, say vegeta-
ble gardening specialists of The Penn-
sylvania State College. Coal ashes
have very little if any fertilizing val-

—There are as many horses and
mules of working age on farms as will
be needed for the coming season, and
er than they were a year ago. A de-
cided decrease in colt production dur-
points to a future shortage of good
work stock. This shortage is likely to
be’ acute during the time that colts
foaled this ‘year and next, or even
young horses purchased now are still
in active service.
—The outlook of the poultry indus-
try during 1925 from the standpoint
of market egg prices ‘is favorable
while from the standpoint of market
poultry prices it is not so encourag-
ing. It seems probable that higher
egg prices will prevail during the sea-
son of flush production this year than
last. With an abnormally large car-
ry over of dressed poultry in storage
it seems probable that lower prices on
market poultry may prevail for at
least the first half of the year.
—Forty-seven Counties to See For-
estry Plantings.—Right along with
the reforestration movement of the
nation comes the Penn State forestry
extension service with 114 demonstra-
tions scheduled in 47 Keystone coun-
ties this year. This is 64 more dem-
onstrations than were held in 1924
and 16 new counties are involved.
At least ninety-five per cent. of the
forestry demonstrations staged in the
State this year will be of the perma-
nent type. They will run for a per-
iod of years near highways where the
plots may be observed easily by trav-
demonstrations can be started be-
tween March 24 and May 15.
The purpose of the forestry demon-
strations as explained by C. R. Ander-
son and F. T. Murphey, forestry ex-
tension = specialists of Pennsylvania
State College, is to promote the use

at the scene of the demonstrations

of forest planting is explained. In

Hundreds of horses are being im-
ported annually for replacement pur-
poses, he ‘said, while breeding opera-
tions within the State remain at a
low ebb. Neglect of horse stock is
apparent all over the State, and
breeding stock, for the most part, is
very inferior. Mares are aged and
good stallions are very scarce, Vial
For a constructive horse program
for Pennsylvania, the horse specialist
urged use of the stallion project, the
filly club, and the gelding club in ex-
tension work. He emphasized the
need of care in choosing stallions of
high quality for use in breeding work.
The great rank and file of mares are
not of a type aad size for breeding
stock, he said.
“Too often horses are regarded as
a necessary evil on the farms,” Vial
declared. “The result is that, con-
sciously or not, the caliber of our
horse stock has slipped back until it
is worse than we realize. Our old
Sorsenians Pride has been dulled and !
eadened seriously.’ SF
