A good stand of red clover has been
increasingly difficult to secure and
maintain In many sectlona and fur
quite a number of years. There are a
number of causes for this partial or
entire failure with red clover which
may work together or separately. The
most Important of these, In that they
are the moat common and widespread,
are due tn a large measure, accord-
to the United States Department of
Agriculture, to continued unwise farm
practices and can be remedied only by
changing those practices. A run-down
soil is an abused soil. In most cases
such a soli can be restored to a reason
able fertility by reversing the process
to which Its conditions are due. In
stead of the organic matter being ex
hausted by constant cropping, It must
be restored either by farm manure or
by green manure. Instead of the natural
supplies of lime, phosphate, and
potash, which may have been scanty
In the first place, being further drawn
on, these elements must be added to
Look After Drainage.
Where clover failure is experienced
or crops are unsatisfactory, the first
step, say department clover specialists,
should be to look after the drainage.
If the land is not well drained and as
a consequence the clover heaves badly
In the spring, the drainage must be Im
proved or all other efforts will be
wasted. If conditions are such that
the drainage cannot be improved, al-
slke clover should be substituted for
red clover. There is no use trying to
grow red clover on badly drained land.
Needs of Soli,
When a crop failure happens on land
that Is well drained It Is advisable to
consult with the county agricultural
agent or with the state extension serv
ice. In many cases the agent will know
whether the soils In that section need
lime or some fertilizer, and the rem
edy can be applied at once. Where no
certain Information Is available a slm-
pie trial will soon tell the story of
what clover needs to thrive on that
particular farm. If It Is organic mat-
ter that the soil needs, sweet clover
may often be substituted to advantage
providing the soli Is well supplied with
Ume, and the soli will be restored to
a condition where red clover will grow.
Unfortunately, most of the clover fail
ures occur on soils deficient in lime,
and on these the results with sweet
clover will be equally unsatisfactory.
Soy beans or cowpeas may be grown
for hay or soil Improvement, but It
must be noted that If these crops are
removed as hay there is no benefit to
the soil, Hogging down the crop Is a

In 28-Inch rows for cultivation using
30 pounds of seed per acre or drill
solid using 75 pounds of seed per acre.
If the ground Is weedy It Is best to
plant In rows. If not, drill the beans
solid. Midwest or Ito yau are ad
vised for this purpose. If soy beans
have not been grown on the land be
fore Inoculation is necessary. Mix
with each bushel of seed three or four
quarts of soil taken from the roots of
beans In a field that has been well In
oculated. A 20-bushel crop of soy
beans requires about two-thtrds aa
much phosphoric acid and potash as a
OO-bushel crop of com. Use at least
100 pounds of add phosphate or its
equivalent per acre each year for aoy
beuns. If no stable manure is used on
the land it is best to apply a mixed
fertiliser containing phosphoric add
When about half the leaves have
fallen and the majority of the pods
appear nearly ripe the crop should be
harvested. If the beans are left in
the field too long the pods may shat

Paint Farm Implements
With Used Oil and Grease
Old greaaea and oils from automo
biles, trucks and tractors, need not be
thrown away. Instead, pour them Into
a receptacle and put them to jgitlrely
different use«. One Is to mix with coal
dust enough oil to make the mass a
little pasty and use the stuff as fuel.
Coal dust Is often a waste otherwise
and is more or less of a nuisance to
handle dry. but when mixed with the
oil It not only hangs together but also
burns well. Still another use Is to
paint *he bright surfaces of farm Im
plements with the old greases to stave
off the formation of rust.
