The Ideal Soil Fertilizer
for lawns, trees, shrubs, gardens, pot plants, etc. It is pure humus, decayed
vegetable matter, scientifically prepared, containing all the necessary
elements of plant food.
Alphano Humus Is composed of organic matter which puts the soil
In the best possible condition, far better than mineral matter, supplying
equally as complete plant food, therefore it is preferable to chemical
Lawns should be dressed with Alphano Humus every autumn to
obtain and maintain a heavy, thick thrifty sward. Trees and shrubs
planted with Alphano make wonderful growth.
Alphano Humus is thoroughly and evenly pulverized in Its scientific
preparation and contains no objectional large clumps. Unlike manure
It does not carry diseases such as typhoid, hoof and mouth diseases, black
rot, etc. It is the best fertilizer for use in making new lawns and is
used by the leading landscape gardeners.
The success of Alphano Humus has encouraged imitators, therefore
understand that all humus Is not Alphano Humus, which Is uniform In
quality and of highest value. One ton of Alphano Is equal to four or more
ton of ordinary humus. Imitations though seemingly cheap may be
found expensive. Order by name. Alphano Humus, the genuine and
original. Thousands everywhere are profiting by its use and testify to its
value. Alphano Humus is used to make the best lawns In America.

ment of Conservation nnd Develop

campaign with the announcement of
tho fact that there were 1.000,000
ncrei of land available for farming
within a sixty miles radius of Trenton.
Western farmers 'were to bo made
acquainted with the ncBleitcd urH
culturnl opportunities of the State. ,
The aim of thli new department was j
to brim.' 500,000 tettleis Into Now
Jersey In the next ten years. That '
Is on nn nvcrage of fiO.OOO settlers a
year. A year has elapsed since the
new department was put In operation I
with such loud blasts of newsrupfr ,

or would that be too much of a settler
for tho ilepar'ment?
In the fJaiiU'ii Department of Tun
Sun September 19, 1915, It was stated:
"If Now Jersey really wants to
do something for New Jersey the
farmers bcllovo the way to com
mence Is with tho farmers ulready
located In the State, whose farms are
not paying or paylt.t ns well as they
should, and there aro hundreds of
them. The St.ilo only ran afford re
lief, nnd State nld should be extended
to the farmers nlrendy In the State
before an effort Is mido to brine In a
half million moie."
Tho qiil'Kcst and cheapest way to
develop tint farms of New Jersey tind
all uncultivated lands is by tnuliltic
the land now under cultivation profit
able. Where a farmer Ii making
money somo one Is sum to locatn nest
to him and try tho same methods.
Nothing succeeds like success, and
nothing travels so fast and with so
little effort as the fclory of tho man
who Is making money. Where there
are two farmers prospering a third
will be drawn, and as tho number of
prosperous ones Increases, so the In
crease will multiply.

TIME TO REPAIR OLD LAWNS
The work of repairing an old lawn
or making a new one Is best porfotmod
In the early autumn In the Middle At
lantic und north centralJJttiUs. as the
young grass grows more vigorously
thnn In spring nml summer and gets a
good start with which to combat weeds
tho following season.
Old lawns having reasonably good
turf can bo bettered by reseedlng nnd
fertilizing. Hare patches should be
scratched with a steel rnko. dressed
with loam or compost and tho ert
sown on this.
When large areas are bare or thin It
Is desirable to ue a disk seeder. After
seeding, apply a second dressing of
loam and roll lightly.
In New Knglnnd and other Northern
ottdes Ihe MUlk siiuiliu b uni In Hit?
spring, as the soli Is more open thnn
late in the season nnd offers a better
seed bod. (ireat care should be taken
In watering not to wash away the new
soil nor to gouge the young plur.ts out
by the force of the water.
Careful attention is required to keep
a lawn In good condition, but with at
tention a goal lawn will last for many
years. An annual application of a
good fertilizer U esscntl.il. Old and
thoroughly lotted stable manure Is
good, but prepared humus and
stable innnuic is more convenient
and absolutely free fiom weed seed.
Weeds that appear In the lawn should
bo cut out next spring. A tnblo knife
Is a good tool for this purpose.
A romfMut of sod, manure and leaf
mould, well rifted before using, Is good,
giving the whol lawn a good drelng
of thli material. Niw, by the way. Is
u good time to start a compint heap
for use next autumn. Make a square
pile of alternate layers of sods, laid
face down, six Inches or a foot deep:
i then a foot of mnnure, on which pile
, leaves laked up from the lawn and
walks, and on tho leaves another layer
of Mil. i tit so on until a siiDleli i -,y
1 large pile has bi en nude. This wiil
be In tlno shape for ue next year, at
the autumn seunn. by simply sifting
it through n coarsn screen,
rrepated humus makes a good dress
Ing, but It should bo used only In a
pulverized state. Some humus con
tains large lumps and when spread
out the lawn grass will li killed
under them. Apply a light dressing
of humus ngaln In tho spring.

T0 GROW ROSES FROM CUTTINGS.
I'robably few persons have ever tried
this way of Increasing tholr stock of
rocs. Vet It Is not dltllctilt. ns I hnvo
proved over and over again In nearly
seventy years of gardening experience.
Chooso a branch of half hardened wood
from a thrifty bush; cut Into four or
Ave inch pieces! see that each of these
has several eyes from which growth
I can start; trim off the lrnves except n
few nenr the top of the cutting. Iut
tha cuttings Into a glass of water for
i n day or two. I think this will be help
fill, though T have set them In the soil
I nt once nnd had them grow, (.'hooso n
sunny spot In Rood gnrdon soil; dig It
up well und put In tho slip about half
their length; pinch tho soil tight
around each one, water anil cover with
a glass fruit Jar or a large, tumbler.
Keep moist by pouring water around
tho glass without raising It rrom tho
ground. Some think sand better to
stnrt them In, but I have used earth.
In a few weeks growth should show
through the glsss, when they may be
gradually accustomed to the air, tak
ing care to go slow about it. I havo
taken cuttliiKs as lato na mid-October,
put them down In this way, nnd when
cold weather cnino Just heaped earth
over glasses and all, and In spring have
found about half of them growing. In
this way I have rooted "Raoiblers,''
"I'erpetuals" and "Tens" many times.

The suiest way of getting weeds out

For shady spots the liberal use of

watering will tend to overcome the
evil effects of the shade.
