They are oooked and served as a vegetable. Because of the odor they impart to the breath, due to volatile substances absorbed by the blood which are car- ried to the lungs and then set free, they are considered objectionable. This prejudice is gradually being ov- ercome and onions are becoming more acceptable in the diet. Onions should be cooked uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes in salted boiling water. This eliminates some of the offensive odor. Ray onions are addition to almonst any vegetable or meat salad or sandwich filling and make many bland tasting foods more appetizing and popular. Onions contain a goodly amount of Vitamins B and C. Cellulose forms 10 per cent and water 87.6 per cent f" ;'.3 composition. They yield 225 ív.iaies per po...

METHODS USED • IN CULTURE OF THE ONION Great Care Must Be Exer- cised In Raising The ° Crop The cultural methods employed in the growintr of Bermuda onions are essentially the same as those for or- dinary onions. As the greater portioi. of the crop is grown is a region whicn has no regular rainfall, irrigation methods are employed almost univer- sally. The greater part of the crop Is grown by the transplanting process And a great amount of hand labor is required. The seeds are sown in spec- ially prepared outdoor beds from th^ middle of September to the middle oi October, arid the seedlings are trans- Jlanted to the field November 20 to anuary 10, or even later. From 3 1-2 to 4 1-2 pounds of seed are required for en"h acre to be transplanted; this *rill allow for discarding all the weak- er plants.
