A report of the New Jersey experi-
ment station Baya that fertilizers are
fertilizers only when they contain one
or more of the essential constituents
of plant growth, 1. e., nitrogen, potash
and phosphoric acid In such materials
as nitrate of soda, sulphate of ammo-
nia, acid phosphate, ground bone, mu-
riate of potash, etc., and when their
application to the soil will contribute
quite as much or more to the growth
of crops and the constituents already
there. The chief cause of unsatisfac-
tory results from the application of
fertilizers to soils deficient In avail-
able plant food is that the person us-
ing them does not understand the
character of the materials he is hand-
ling or the characteristics of growth
and specific needs of the plant whose
growth he Intends to encourage.
While the value of a commercial fer-
tilizer is determined almost exclu-
sively by the amount and form of the
nitrogen, potash and phosphoric acid
which it contains, it does not follow
that all soils or crops will respond
equally to applications of fertilizers
containing those elements because
the needs of soils and the require-
ments of crops vary. SollB differ in
respect to their need for specific ele-
ments owing either to their method of
formation or to their management
and cropping. A sandy soil is usually
deficient In all the essential elements
of plant food, while a clayey soil
usually contains the mineral elements
In abundance, particularly potash. On
the other hand, a soil very rich in veg-
etable matter 18 frequently deficient
in mineral matter, while a limestone
soil is likely to contain considerable
proportions of phosphoric acid.
Growing Potatoes Under Straw.
From Farmers' Review: On this
farm we tried the plan of covering
the potato patch with straw. The re-
sult was satisfactory. The tubers
were planted the ordinary depth and
as they came up the straw was put
on. Next time we will merely cover
with earth and then cover that im-
mediately with straw to a depth of
ten or twelve inches. Deep covering
with straw has proved the best with
us. There is much complaint here
about potatoes rotting, but we are
finding very few rotten ones.—E. C.
Thompson, Johnson County, Ne-
Planting potatoes under straw has
been tried for a good many years, yet
the practice does not seem to In-
crease. We would like to know what
are the objections to the practice. It
seems there must be some, or the
plan would be more generally adopt-
ed. Will some of our readers give us
their experiences in this matter.
Fatness Is Not Heslth.
It has been remarked that some
swine breeders mistake fatness for
health and vigor. Fat does sometimes
indicate thrift, but not always. When
a pig has been properly fed on bal-
anced rations and lays on fat it Is an
indication of vigor, for the animal Is
getting the most possible out of the
food. But when the ration Is one of
corn only and the pig gets fat the in-
dications are not such as may be
trusted to Indicate health. The fat

T. Orelner: It Is easier to castrate
a young cockerel than a pig or a lamb.
It Is profitable in more ways than one.
Once operated on, capons become the
most tractable and peaceable animals
Imaginable. They do not run nor
chase nor fight. I will not say that
capons while young grow faster or lay
on more flesh from a given amount of
food than unaltered males of the same
age do. As long as the cockerel Is
young enough so that no energy goes
Into the reproductive organs, I think
their development is about at an even
rate. But there is a change after a
time. The development of the organs
of reproduction In the male and his
growing activity and restlessness con-
sume energy, which In the capon is
saved for flesh production. Water
comes to a certain degree of heat only.
All the excess above this is utilized
for the production of steam. It is the
same thing with the rooster. He
grows to a certain size or weight, and
all the surplus energy above this is
used for the purpose of reproduction.
In other words, the capon will con-
tinue to grow and lay on flesh much
longer than the unaltered male. It
takes a year or more for the capon to
come to his full size and weight, but
at that age he Is much larger than the
rooster of the same age, and several
times as valuable.—Farmers' Review.
Salicyclic Acid Fails to Keep Eggs.
Fifty grams (about one and three-
fourth ounces) of salicylic acid (crys-
tals) were dissolved in alcohol and the
concentrated solution extended with
950 cubic centimeters (about one
quart) of water. In this solution the
twenty fresh eggs, after being washed
with water, were allowed to remain
immersed for one hour. They were al-
lowed to dry and were then, on May
18, 1899, packed, small ends down, sep-
arately, in fine dry sand, and the stone
jar was placed with the others on the
floor of the cellar closet. Result: Good,
0 per cent; bad, 100 per cent Opened
on May 31, 1900, this lot showed brit-
tle shells. The air cells were enlarged,
and contained more or less mold. The
whites were clear, and the yolks more
or less gummy, in some cases sticking
to the sides of the shells. The eggs
had lost their good flavor. They were
stale or musty.
Weevils in Peas and Beans.
From the Farmers' Review: After
cleaning beans and peas ready for
use, take tight box, barrel or cask
(dry), and put the peas or beans into
it. Take a small bottle and put Into
It two ounces of bisulphide of carbon.
Put the bottle into the peas while it
is corked up. Press the seeds about
the bottle some, so it will not tip
over. Then take out the cork and
cover the receptacle in which the
peas or beans are. This covering
should be so perfect that the fumes
of the gas will not get out. Do not
unoover it for some time, nor carry a
lamp or candle near it, as the gas
from it might take Are.—D. C. Pros-
