Wade Drakes must come to life. In
his lectures Mr. Winters exhibited a
live-logged animal, or a five-legged
prosperous farm, vvihich was sup
ported hy the legs: Organic matter,
deep plowing and proper cultivation,
soil moisture, lime, and fertilizers.
To illustrate its use: When you
start plowing under velvet beans and
other legumes you begin to walk on
tho organic matter leg; when you
plow under tIiis organic matter you
should begin plowing deeper and
making a better seed-bed, and thus
walk on tho proper tillage ieg; after
you have done both of these things
you should begin using lime and
walking on this third leg; you should
have already been walking on the
"soil 'moisture" leg by proper ter
racing and draining; and the fifth
and last leg supporting the prosper
ous farm is the intelligent uso of fer
tilizers. Wo have been hopping on
this IOHO leg-fertilizers too long
and too much, and it is only by the
uso of the oilier four legs that we
can take tho weight off of the fer
tilizer leg. In the monument of soil
fertility we have made fertilizers the
foundation stone when it should have
been only the cap-stone. .
A farmer is rich in proportion to
the fertility of his soil. Plant vel

year, says Mr. Winters, and "South

the instructions given below by
Prof. Conrad i, of donison:
"Plant your cantaloupes as early
as possible consistent with safety
from frost. Early maturing canta
loupes are much less infested by tho
worms, as tho; bug comes out late lu
the season. The moth which lays the
eggs prefers the buds and blooms of
the sn minor squash, and. the squash
should be planted early so as to be
In bloom when the cantaloupes aro
forming later. Those squash should
be planted ten days ahead of late
"When the cantaloupes have got
ten to be the size of a child's base
ball they may be bagged with a six
pound nail bag. While bagging the
oarth may bo slightly hilled with the
feet so that the bags will remain
dry. Sugar bags are too light and
will not stand weathering."

Washington, Apiri 13.-Great
Britain is bending every energy to
escape from dependency upon the
United States for raw cotton, accord
ing to a report to tho Department of
Commerce to-day from Commercial
Attache Dennis at London. To this
end, Mr. Dennis said, England is en
couraging the production of cotton
in the former German possessions In
East Africa, obtained under man
date, and in her own colonial pos
"While our own people have been
considerably aroused by the so-called
British domination of the world's pe
troleum resources,'' Mr. Dennis said,
. "little attention has been paid to the
J ob y jons fact that a result of the
v ?., Increasing Opportunities for tito
production of raw cotton lino de
veloped within tb? British Empire.
The British have seized upon that
fact and systematic efforts are being
made by the empire cotton growing
committee to stimulate cotton grow
ing within the empire."
"Colton growing," he continued,
"is being urged by the British in all
tho colonies where conditions tire
favorable lo the crop. India, Egypt
and Mesopotamia are to be utilized,
as are the former German colonies
in Africa," he said, adding that "the

Commenting on the present inter
national cotton situation, Mr. Dennis
declared that by the end of July the
world's supply of unconsumed cotton
would amount to 1 1,030,000 bales of
500 pounds each. This, he said,
would be the largest carry-over In
the world's history. Collapse of the
European market, as well as tho
markets of Poland and Finland, bc
said, had brought on the over-sup

down the price of cotton fabrics, he
asserted, had done much to weaken
