Things That Build Soil
Among the more important
factors that science has contrib
uted to agriculture for maintain
ing the fertility of new soils snd
restoring fertility to depleted
soils, the following are mention
ed by the O. A. C. Press Bulletin:
growing nitrogen gathering leg
umes and plowing under humus
forming green crops; systematic
cron rotation that provides for
the more nearly equal use of the
various plant nutrients of the
soil, lessen soils diseases, favors
good physical condition snd pro
vides time for release of unavail
able plant foods; use of live stock
for returning organic matter to
to the farm,- thus selling farm
products in concentrated form
and removing but a minimum of
fertility matter; cultivated crops
for Bummer fallow, serving the
double purpose ofjjrotectinj the
soil and producing a source of in
come; use of Hme and commerc
ial fertilizers to produce desir
able soil conditions and supply
needed fertility elements; and
relentless warfare upon noxious
weeds that waste the energy of
the soil snd crowd out valuable
farm plants. - - .
Last week the Journal got out
a special issue of six pages and
it meant of lot of work to get
the thing outr It also meant a
certain amount of cooperation on,
the part of our readers to send
us news. Now if you Mr. Sub
scriber have s bit of news that
you would like to see in. print,
send it in. It you have s cat
that has a litter of 17 kittens or
if you have a peach that weighs
5 pounds, teH us about it and we
will nrint - it - for - you. - Fair
enough is'nt it?
Don't Judge a man by his
clothes. God made one and the
tailor made the other, , Don
judge a man by his family, for
Cain belonged to a good family
Don't judge a man by hW failure
in life, for many a man fails be
cause he is too honest to succeed
Don't judge a man by the house
he lives in, for the lizard snd the
rat often inhabit the grander
structure. When a man dies
they who survive him ask what
property has he left behind; the
angel who bends over the dying
man asks what good deeda he
has sent before him.
