How to firow 100 Bihl of Corn rer Acre

rather a John the Baptist who cries in
the wilderness that It is time we Amer.
Irans improved and kept in active use
fulness bnr agricultural lands and to
lee to It that wastefulness in care of
soil is stopped.
Such a benefactor is Mr. Smith, a
practical farmer, of Delphi. Ind., who,
In this book of 18S rapes, renders a
real public service along: the line of
sane agriculture. He lint only shows
how sick and worn-out soils may be
doctored, but how they cay be cared
for, so that Increased yield per acre
ape may be secured in order to supply
greater markets. The book will not
only Interest practical farmers, but in
tending; farmers who feel the call to go
on the land and grow crops, uregon
Is so youi g a state that our soil is
practically virgin, but In older-settled
portions of the Pacific Slope are worn
out lands that no mere rotation of crops
can secure or guarantee the once mag
nificent harvests they once enjoyed.
Why? Because the sol Is getting poor
er every year., due to lack of scientific
farming and Ignorance as to soil con
servation. Of coarse, corn is not grown to any
great extent in Oregron, because our
soil, climate and markets demand other
agricultural products. But the lossons
of the book may be applied to all crops,
to all wornout soils, or soils that may
soon be in danger of being worn out.
Statistics show that the average yield
of corn per acre in this country for the
year 1910 was 27.4 bushels, a low av
erage when compared with those of Eu
rope. Mr. Smith talks of 100 bushels
per acre. Let us see how he does It.
Soil Is defined as "being the upper
stratum of the earth or that compound
substance which furnishes nutriment
to plants, or which is particularly
adapted to support ar.d nourish them."
Mr. Smith's method to get 100 bushels
per acre from his soil is to see to It
that he puts into the soil as much as
he takes out. In this way the soil is
never "poor." He thinks that not one
farmer in ten is givine: his land a
chance, or that not one in ten seems to
know how to build up his soil, or if he
does, he "seems to be going on the
principle that he can get enough from
his land to support himself during his
lifetime, and does not care for his pos
terity or future generations."
It is stated that the three elements
necessary to make good soils are: Pot
ash, phosphorus, and nitrogen; and that
the last mentioned is the most precious,
the most Important and the most cost
ly. It being the element soonest farmed
out of fertile soils. We are reminded
that nitrogen promotes growth, phos
phorus produces fruitfulness and early
maturity, and potash increases quality.
"The chief lack of worn-outs soils is
humus, organic matter and nitrogen.
Humus is the residue of decayed or
ganic matter. Organic matter Is vege
table or animal matter, and when It has
passed through its process of decay Is
humus. - It appears in the soil as a
dark-colored substance, and where it
exists in abundance renders the soil
It Is admitted that barnyard manure
puts the elements required Into the soil
quicker than any other known agency.
but it Is pointed out that it is not prac
ticable to use on a large scale because
sufficient quantities of manure cannot
be obtained. Can commercial fertiliz
ers do the work required? No, says Mr.
Smith, for the reason that they do not
contain humus or organic matter, and
for the further reason that the mineral
matter in the soil is sufficiently dis
solved In contact with water and mois
ture to furnish the needs of plant
What. then. Is the real remedy?
"Green" manure, plowed under the
soil to enrich It. In the use of green
manures, Mr. Smith says he has saved
all the valuable liquids which the green
manuring plants assimilated into their
roots and branches during the growing
season, has also saved two-thirds of the
dry matter in these plants, and has
thus secured a greater supply of or
ganic matter for bacteria food and sup
plying humus for the soil. The use of
HI the manure that can be secured Is
also advised, and "plow under, for a
supply of organic matter, all corn
stacks, weeds, stubble and straw."
What are Mr. Smith's green manures?
He advises the growing and plowing
under of such crops as rye. Hungarian
hay, sandy-vetch, alfalfa and sweet and
red clover. He advises against the use
of timothy, and says that the latter Is
the meanest soil robber on the Ameri
can farm. He adds that if forced to
buy hay, he would rather pay S20 per
ton for timothy hay than grow It on
his farm. This is worth , noting: "It
Is said that a ton of Hungarian hay in
blossom contains 20 pounds of nitrogen,
B pounds of phosphorus acid and 17
pounds of potash. It takes from one
to one and one-half bushels of seed to
bow an acre worth generally from $1.50
per bushel, or $1.50 to $2.25 per acre.
If but three tons of Hungarian to the
acre is sown and the same Is plowed
under, you get 60 pounds, of nitrogen
to the acre. It will take six tons of
barnyard manure to produce 60 pounds
of nitrogen, and six tons of manure is
worth not less than $1.50 per ton,

to keep soils In good condition, are giv

It Is stated that in Boston you can't
get "in society" to the very holiest of
holies, unless you come from an old
Puritan family whose first American
ancestor came over the Atlantic In the
Mayflower. In Philadelphia, you are
solemnly asked if you are of disting

in that blue-blooded territory bounded
by Broad, Chestnut, Twenty-first and
Epruce or Pine streets. In New York
City, you are asked if you are of dis
tinguished Dutch ancestry, like the
Colonel, or if you have many dollars.

REV. ZUICHO TACHIBANS, a priest
of the .great West Hongwanji Tem
ple at Kioto, returned from that place
recently after five years spent in ex
ploration in the virgin parts of Central
Asia. His journey was undertaken for
purposes of research under the instruc
tion of Count Otanl. the Lord. Abbat of
the Hongwanji Temple, and an enthusi
astic geographer. Mr. Tachibana is a
young man of 23 years of age and of
such delicate physique that the natives
said he must be a woman disguised as
a man, says the Tokio correspondent of
the London Chronicle.
Mr. Tachibana proceeded from Lon
don to Omsk, and thence by stage coach
to Semipalatinsk; thence to Turfan In
SIn-Kiang ("the new territory") pass
able roads were found.
During his explorations Kh Tachi
bana traveled across the Takla-Makan
Desert, which he describes as the worst
of all deserts of Central Asia. Neither
birds nor even insects are to be found
The desert is a sea of sand where
there Is only the wind to hear and the
moon to see. The party constantly met
sand mountains over 12.000 feet high,
and the men began to grumble, fearing
that they would be buried by the con
stant sand storms.
On arriving at Goma, on the right
bank of the River Tarim, he caused

graduate of Westpolnt.

considerable fright among the shep
herds, as his was the first party from
the south for 30 years. At first the
shepherds fled, but were brought back.
The feat of crossing the desert caused
greatest reverence by the shepherds.
At this point he left the camel cara
van to follow on slowly, while he pro
ceeded on horseback to Kuchar. which
place he reached after three days. This
is a large town, though not to be com
pared with civilized cities. "Neverthe
less," said Mr. Tachibana, "I felt on en
tering it as though I had suddenly
been put down in Piccadilly."
Some time was spent in the neigh
borhood of Kashgar investigating the
buried cities, and afterwards the ex
plorer proceeded through the valley to
the east of Tzunling to Khotan, the dis
tricts previously explored by Dr. Stein
(now Sir Marc Aurel Stein). Thence
the party proceeded to Tibet for the
purpose of geological investigation.
Several districts were visited -by Mr.
Tachibana, which had been omitted by
Dr. Sven Hedin. These regions are ab
solutely blank on the maps, and have
never. been visited before.
Among the relics brought back are
a quantity of writings of the Wlgol
tribes, by whom the Buddhist religion
was first introduced into Sin-Klang and
propagated throughout China. This
tribe was entirely wiped out by Mo
hammedan invaders. The writings of
the Wlgols Is from right to left hori
zontally, and appears to have been pro

well as in Asia.
CRIPPLE LIVES AS PRINCE
Revel on Stolen Property Only La-sts
for Few Days.
PARIS, Aug. S4. (Special.) Jules
Polaert, a one-armed cripple who had
been acting as prompter at one of the
Paris music-halls. Imagined a way of
making his life more romantic by dis
appearing with JtiOOO worth of jewels
entrusted to him by a friendly dealer.
These enabled him to be for a few days
the owner of a motor car, to drive
about from town to town, and to en
joy such a vacation as he never be
fore had in his life.
But, like many a romance, it . has
come to a sudden end. Jules Polaert
was pursued by a swarm of detectives,
and as he took no trouble to hide his
traces he was caught and led to prison.
The prisoner comes of a good Belgian
family and lost his arm In a fencing
contest. The House In Summer.
In a very artistic Summer living
room recently seen, the piano and ta
bles were covered with one of the new
figured linens in soft tones of a dull
grayish mauve, and the furniture with
a figured linen in tones of rose and
the malachite green on a background
matching the other linen. The couch
pillows were covered, some with plain
mauve and some with plain green, and
there were masses of pink roses in the
room harmonizing with the rose In the
linen. In this room, instead of being
taken down, the Winter portieres had
been Incased In slip covers of the linen.
The owner said that she had no place
to pack them without wrinkling them,
so she had hit upon that scheme.
