personal investigation, I find that
where farms have been thoroughly
cultivated and highly * fertilized the
crop will bo very much better than we
have bad for many years; in many in

to the acre. On the other hand there
are large areas of ordinary land that
have been poorly fertilized and tilled,
which will show results no better than
last year, and in many cases inferior
crops will be the result. I think the
