PREPARING THE CORN FIELD
Manure, Supplemented With Some
Form of Fertilizer to Furnish
Phosphoric Acid, le Beet.
(By W. M. KELLEY.)
On tbe majority of stock and dairy
ifarms the corn field Is the ideal place
to apply the farm manure. A corn
crop Is able to make profitable use of
manure for the reason tbat It makes
lta principal growth late In the season
after the fertilizing elements In the
manure have been available to nour-
ish the growing plants, by the action
of the elements.
Hie Ideal corn field Is prepared by
applying manure to a clover sod.
A light dressing of stable manure
on the clover sod will make an abund-

ance of nitrogen for the corn crop and
at the proper time during its growth
to Insure a maximum yield. The bac-
teria In the manure will hasten the
decomposition of the organic matter
contained In the roots and stubble of
ths clover sod and hasten them into
a condition available to nourish the
Crowing corn crop.
All farmers know that excellent
crops of mixed grass may be grown
on a field that has produced a good
crop of corn by the application of
manure alone the previous year but
it. my opinion better economical re-
sults may be obtained if the manure
la applied at the rate of from 5 to
10 loads to the acre and supplemented
with some form of fertilizer supply-
ing an abundance of phosphoric acid
The phosphoric acid may be pur-
chased In numerous forms, but in my
opinion the potash had best come in
the form of a high grade or a low

FERTILITY MAY BE RESTORED
Principal Factor In Restoration, Ao
cording to Prof. Alfred Vivian,
Is Organic Matter.
"Anj soil which was once rich can
be made rich," is the declaration
made by Prof. Alfred Vivian, acting
dean of the College of Agriculture,
Ohio State University, in a recent ad-
dress. The principal factor concerned
in the restoration of the soil fertility,
according to Prof. Vivian, is organlo
"The destruction of organic matter
by cultivation apd otherwise, is
largely responsible for the depletion
our our soils," said he. "This organic
matter must be restored if we expect
our farms to be productive. What
does organic matter do? It Increases
the power of the soil to absorb and
retain moisture; improves the physi-
cal or mechanical condition of the
soil; helps to control soil tempera-
ture, and is a storehouse of plant
food. How can organic matter be re-
stored to the soil?
"By saving all animal manures and
putting them onto the land; by mak-
ing use of all crop residues, that is.
putting back into the soil everything
not used for feed; by turning under
green manuring and catch crops."
Prof. Vivian pointed out the loss sus-
tained by burning straw stacks and
other crop residues and declared that
the difference between the careful
saving of this plant food and its wan-
ton destruction was "the difference
between the salvation and damnation
of our soils."
HANDY FOR CHOPPING ROOTS

It is a slow and tedious Job chop-
ping roots in large quantities, and if
they are to be fed to animals, a great
deal of time Is required. Your black-
smith will make a good root-chopper
by following the suggestions In the
illustration herewith. Take to him an
old handle of some kind and have It In-
serted firmly In the chopper and fast-
ened with screws. The edges of the
chopper should be very sharp and the
blade should be strong enough not to
bend under vigorous chopping.

A COMMON ONE
Happy Experience of Mrs. Di
Who Finally Found Relief ia
Cardui, The Wooun's Tonic.
West Baden, Ind.—"For about four
years," says Mrs. Sarah Dilllnger, of
this place, "1 suffered with an ailment
common to women, and I waa so poor-
ly tbat I could not do my work.
Since taking Cardui, the woman's
tonic, I am stout, and able to work all
day, hard. It la certainly a great
medicine for women. 1 recommend
it to a great many ladles.
My daughter is now taking Cardui;
and it seems to be helping her al-
ready, although ahe has now taken
only one bottle.
Cardui is the best medicine I ever
took. It has done me so much good!
It saved my life, and I can't praise
it too much."
Every woman would always keep
Cardui handy, for use when needed, if
she knew what benefit it gives, in
cases where weakened vitality make*
the body and brain seem tired and
A few doses of Cardui, at the right
time, will often aave much suffering
by preventing a more serious sick-
To relieve pain and misery, due to
womanly troubles, nothing has been
found, during the 50 years that It has
been before the public to take tbe
place of Cardui.
Won't you try it?
