nnd tlio absence of canneries of large
capacities, silos in which lo nrovide
succulent feeds for the dairies and
factories to handle rnw materials of
various kinds bnve combined to mili
tate against that type of agriculture.
Hut it is obiously clear thnt this
advanced type of fanning mnv not
much longer be deferred. The mnr
kets are eager for our products. Far-
sighted fanners believe they discern
the approach of the day when we
shall have iiupioved transportation
facilities. And nil are nrccd that
we must have the irrigation just as
early as brains and brawn can get it
to us. There need be no doubt about
the money if tlio unit system shall be
adopted. Cultivation of farms un
der the Rogue River canal svsteni has
decisively demonstrated the great
value of irrigation in Hie matter of
added yield and the rpinlily of the
product, while siiecessjve drouths
have forever settled the (inchtion as
to the iiM'Icssness of cultivating the
soil in this vallev without water from
n modern system of irrigation.
A Word About Kcillll7crs
A prime requisite to success in di
versified fanning, granting that we
have irrigation ami trniisimrtntioii
facilities, both for our raw and our
nianiifaetured ni tieles, is a well-balanced
content of plant food in the
soil. In many places in this valley
some attention will he required to the
use of commercial fertilizers. Since
an eminent American chemist has
.said that "lime enrbountes may be
said to be the basis of civilization,
"let us see how lime may be used to
maintain this reputation.
The aliie of this material has
been proved by thousands of years
of use. in our eivili.ntion. Soil fer
tility iii Kiirbjia nnd 'Qhliu?"hnfc hern
maintained for long periods without
the ordinary commercial fertilizers by
the use of the light forms of lime in
the right minuter. American agricul
ture is far behind in this respect, with
depleted fertility alter a brief period
of cultivation. YVhcic an abundance
of humus e.xists in non-acid soil con
ditions, ordinary fertilizers gave ex
cellent results for a time; but the
soil, even under tho-e conditions,
eventually becomes impoverished.
Hlenicnts of fertility may be there,
but they need stimulation. They do
not combine and are, therefore, not
available as plant food.
I, lino Cnrboiiato XeeOed
Carbonate of limo is absolutely
needed, as shown by the fact Hint, if
it is not supplied, the growth of the
plant censes as hoon as it has used
the limo contained in the seed. Prod
nets raised in soil deficient in lime
nre poor in quality, and, on account
of the lesser miautity of limo in the
plants, they me less nourishing as
a food. On soils rich in lime, the
plants are compact, short-jointed,
stouter in stem and far more luxur
iant. Pens, beans, vetch, clovers of all
kinds and alfalfa rcquiiu an abund
ance of lime. Jt produces a chem
ical change 111 the soil which renders
plant food more available; and it pro
duces 11 mechanical change which
brings the soil into more favorable
