In this connection but in the cotton

farms that the supplj of manuie is In-

In enlarging the enp'tcitj of the soil for

AIR DRAINAGE IS ESSENTIAL
No Farm Crop Can Endure Wet Feet
If Land Is Not Worth Draining
It Is Not Worth Keeping.
Air drainage is as essential as soil
drainage It Is not alwajs the high
places that are free from frost Ere-
quentlj there are pockets among the
hills where crops nnd fruit suffer late
In the spring nnd enrlj in the fnll from
the lavages of the frost despot. On
low lands there also seems to be places
which frost npparentlj avoids at un-
seasonable times These locations have
well-established boundnry lines which
are known to people of tho communltj'.
No fruit enn endure wet feet. -This
principle obtains In all fnim crops If
jour ground is not worth tile draining
It Is not worth keeping much less es-
tablishing It to fruit

DAIRY PRODUCTS IN DEMAND
Only Way New Districts Can Be Sup-
plied Is by Breeding Up Herd
by Use of Good Bulls.
Tho great demand for dniry prod-
ucts hns caused the price of good dairy
cows to l)o verj high Reports from
associations of dalrjmen show that
It is Impossible to buj first class dnlrj
cows at even $S0 a head. With such
a demand for cows in old dairy dis-
tricts there will be few good cows

the onlj waj new districts can be sup-

Sow Clover Seed in Spring.
Tho best time to sow clover seed is
in eail j spring on a light snow or when
the ground is honej combed all over.
Tho seed will then woik down into tho
soil and bo covered.
Eoui to six pounds of medium red
and two pounds nlslkc per acre make
the best mKture.
Less Importation of Seed.
Onlj about one half as much alfalfa
seed and less than one half as much
cilmson clover seed weio imported dur-
ing tho fiscnl j ear 1015 1G as during
elthet of tho two piovlous jears.
Less than 70000 pounds of hairy
vetch seed were Impoited In 1010
whereas 2 500.000 pounds were Import-
ed In 101 1.
