FERTILE CONDITION OF SOIL
Room for Good Deal of Difference of
, Opinion Regarding Best Fertil
izer for Vegetables.
(By G. S. FRAPS. College Station. Texas.)
For cabbage or cucumbers on a
Bandy soil deficient in phosphate URO
a mixture of 1,200 pounds cottonseed
meal, 800 pounds acid phosphate and
75 pounds sulphate, four per cent,
nitrogen, and two per cent, potash.
Use from 400 to SOO pounds per acre?
Well rotted manure ls also excellent
for cucumbers. In order to maintain
the fertile condition jf the Boil it will
be necessary to adopt a rotation of
crops in whicb you plant peas, beans
or some si7' ilar crop, and either turn
them under or graze them off. The
land needs vegetable matter almost
as badly as it does plant food.
There is room for a good deal of
difference of opinion in regard to the
best fertilizer for vegetables. A mix
ture of ten pounds cottonseed meal,
five pounds acid phosphate, and one
pound of kainit when found to give
good results might be continued. It
might be well to try a little more
kainit on tomatoes and cucumbers,
and usually larger applications than
400 pounds per acre, I do not think
that cottonseed meal alone will give
as good results as this mixture. The
cottonseed meal might give better re
sults some seasons but in the long
run the mixture ought tn do better.
For tomatoes it is possible to run
the potash to as high as five pounds
kainit, or if it is desired to use a
more concentrated source oV potash,
use one pound of muriate of potash,
in place of four pounds of kainit. I
do not consider that there is any dan
ger of hurting la.id with the use of
commercial fertilizers, provided the
fertilizers are used in the proper
way. In the first place, means should
always be taken to maintain the con
tent of the organic matter in the soil
by the use of stable manure and by
growing peas, beans, or similar crops
and either turning them under or
grazing them off. In other words,
save and return to the soil as much
an possible of the vegetable matter.

This improvement refers to a trac

is to provide a plane band traction

which wheel may be readily converted

COTTONSEED OF MUCH VALUE
Millions of Dollars in Capital and
Thousands of Persons Employed
in Various Industries.
Forty years ago cottonseed waa re
garded as a nuisance. Southern leg
islatures enacted laws prohiDitlng
the dumping of lt into running
streams. It was suffered to accumu
late and rot until it could be used
as a manure.
Slowly lt was put to other uses. It
was crushed and some use made of
the oil but the product was gummy
and therefore unavailable as a lubri
cant. By 1880 the annual product was
of the value of $7,000,000 but most of
it still went to waste.
Now the cottonseed is fulfilling the
prediction of Edward Atkinson, who
said, in 1885, that "the cottonseed,
weighing twice as much as the fiber,
would some day be worth quite as
The Boston Monitor In an article
on the wonders of cottonseed says:
"People now eat and wear cottonseed
products and do all manner of things
with them. The lintels yields batting,
wadding, stuffing for pads, cushions,
comforts, horse collars and upholstery,
mixing for shoddy, for wool in hat
making and for lambs' wool in fleece
lined underwear; also for felt and
low grade yarns used in making lamp
and candle wicks, twine, rope and car
"pets, also cellulose used in making
artificial silk and writing paper, and
as a basis for explosives.
"But this Is not all. The hulls are
used in feed, fertilizer, paper stock
and stuffing. The cake and meal are
also used In fertilizers, In dye-stuffs,
In feed for cattle, poultry, horses and
swine, as well as in confectionery and
flour. The oil enters Into the manu
facture of lard compounds, white cot
tolene, butter oil, cooking oil, salad
oil, 'olive' oil and eleomargarines. It
ls used in the packing of olives and
sardines, In miners' oil, in lubricating
oil, in paints, in mixing for putty and
In automobile tires. It ls an ingredi
