An interesting development of the early zinc mining in New
Jersey is to be found in the account of a group of operators who
came upon all large outcropping of zincite. Thinking that it was
an ore of copper and that their fortunes had been made, they

Chicago, July 23. The women of
Chicago have (truck the' key note in
the profiteering situation by demand
ing to know from every grocer with
whom they deal just what his profits
are on each and every item of goods
which he offers for sale. This is a
thoroughly practical, quick, and effi
cient method of dealing with the sit
uation; and if the plan is carried out
to its logical conclusion it will show
just who are the profiteers whether
retailers, middlemen, or producers
and make them cut out their excessive
profits or take to the tall timber, for
they will not be able to stand the
burning glare of publicity.
Heretofore the consumer has been
the universal goat upon him has
been loaded the burden of all this un
scrupulous price-boosting. But there
is no legitimate reason why he shquld
continue indefinitely to bear this un
just burden. He can, if he will, be the
master instead of the slave in this
business of supply and demand. And
to accomplish this purpose all that
is necessary is for consumers to co
operate and insist upon getting .a
square deal, for, after all, neither the
middle-man nor the retailer is a real
necessity to the consumer they are
at best only a mere convenience; and
when they cease to be a convenience

Word comes from Washington that
the National Guard is to be organized
on a new basis. The new National
Guard is to contain sixteen divisions
with divisional areas following the
same territorial lines which formed
the basis for the organization of the
Guard sent arainst Germany. The
order for the new organization has
been already approved by Secretary
Baker. The Adjutant Generals of the
various State units have been notified
of the-changes by Major General Jesse
Carter, Chief of the Bureau of uni

WHAT KIND OF FERTI
LIZES SHALL I BUY!
By E. J. Willis
Usually this question is asked by
the fanner with a view of finding
from which company it would be best
to buy as well as the best brand of
fertiliser to buy. Practically all the
fertiliser companies that have regis
tered their goods to sell in Kansas
have limiliar brands of material, each
carrying their own analysis which is
guaranteed. We are not in a position
to recommend one company over an
other, this choice must be made by
the individual or group of farmers,
either by the availability of the ma
terial desired or by the quantity of
fertilizer wnlcn tney can secure ior
We can. however, and will advise any
farmer on the best kind of fertilizer
for him to buy. if he has not already
determined this to bis own satisfaction
on his own farm. A great many

The formula of these fertilizers
would be 2-10-0: 2-12-0. or 2-14-0.
On ner cent of notash increases the
coat of the fertiliser from four to six
dollars, per ton, and the very small
increased yield does not warrant Its
use. The results ox ex experiments
conducted by the Kansas Experiment
Station. In Southeastern Kansas, cov
ering a period of five years, show de
finitely that applications of potash are
not necessary. The average Increase
due to potash was only M bushel This
increase was not sufficient to pay for
the material used. In no instance did
the potash have a marked Influence on
the yield. Most of this work was cone
in Cherokee county. Mixed goods
should be applied at about 126 pounds
to the acre.
(4) Raw Bone Meal Is the raw bone
finely ground. It contains tha glue
and gelatin which comes out In the
steaming process, and consequently
contains a higher per cent of nitro
gen and a lower per cent of pnos
nhorus than the steamed bone. It is
a very good fertilizer on poor land and
should be applied at about the same
rate as the steamed bone. It costs
about $8.00 more per ton than the
