The Triangle of Problems for the Far
mers to Solve,
Farmers, we are now faoing a seri
ons problem in our business. It is a
triangle of conditions that we are np
against. Our products of cotton are
being priced and held-down the one
side by an organised body of specu
lators, prices of our fertilizers are being
raised by another combination, viril?
the increasing prices of labor is hold
ing-down the other corner of the trian -
Where shall we look for aid out of
this dilemma? Shall we look to tho pol
itician"? No. He is too busy lookiug
after his fences in political affairs,
Sholl wo look first to the cotton specu
lator and'then to the fertilizer com
bines and repeat the words Of the
Irishman's prayer, "Oh! good Lord, or
Oh! good Devil," whosoever hands we
may fall in help us! No, we must use
more brains in our business and turn
about away from this habit of playing
a losing game of blind-mans bun
botween tbese dangerous, crushing
obstacles and use more of tbe manhood
and gifts of independence of farm life.
We must form a closer business rela
tion with Dame Nature. We must
enter into a combination with her and
learn and comply with her rules of
basinoBS. If ever tbese barren fields
and naked lands of ours are covered
again and clothed with a green gown
of verdure after the fashion of Dame
Nature and made to bloom again as
the rose we will have to look to science
tor aid. lt was ulan's folly and ignor
ance of nature's laws that destroyed
the natural fertility and riohness of
oar soil, and it cannot be restored again
cheaply without we diligently work
with nature's ways in doing so. On
this line Dr. Moore, of the U. 8. Agri
cultural Department, has recently
made a discovery of: what is known as
a system of inoculating poor land*
wi tn nitrogen producing bacteria, and'
has now put hisp?an into practical use
by sanding out id small (vest pocket)
packages of his "ni^e-culture-' aum
.sieut to inoculate one acre o? land.
Tirio coi i, when once inoculated, will
remain inoculated soiong as it is plant
ed in leguminous crops once in three
years. These germs, when p?fe into
the soil, fasten themselves to the roots
of such leguminous plants as are at
hand, draw the free nitrogen out of'
the air and feed it to the plants, thus
the farmer may set up his little ferti
lizer factory at work on every acre of
land he has. drawing down from na
ture's store-house the air, which con
tains four-fifths free nitrogen. There
is a different kind of bacteria for each
variety of these leguminous plants,
cow-peas, clover, vetches, alfalfa,
After July 1st the government will
be prepared to send out packages con-j
taming enough of this m tro-cul turo td
inoculate one acre free of charge, and
we advise farmers to prepare an aere
of the poorest land tney have, get a
package of this nitro-cul turo and try it.
We are satisfied that here ls the solu
tion of the problem bf cheap fertibzers,
and will in a few years bring : aboat a
revolution in diveralH^d larssisg *?
tne DUttih the homo of the cow-pea, that
will place all who practice uria new,
new plan in such an'independent posi
tion ?hat he can hold bis cotton "until
the hair clips br tail holt brakes," and
each ana every/year his lands may bo
actually growing richer. His own fer
tilizer factory, will bu afc work every
dey and at night, foo, while the far
mer sleeps. "?.
Some seed houses are now. offering
this nitro-culture for estent $3.00 for
acre size packages. We are to make a
careful study of this new discovery,
and'will inoculate about eight plats in
acre lots and will no doubt boin pos
session :of some interesting facta on
this'subjcct during this season. This
nitro-culture does not supply any of
the mineral fertilizers', such as potash
and phosphoric acid, but ao most of
onr lands are naturally rich br have
beoi\ enriched by years of continual
applications of these mineral ele
ments, weare not likely to need more
of thia in our lands in several years to
.comb. 'cK- V:
Recent experiments .with nitro-cul
ture at Atlanta Exposition resulted SB
follows: The total amount bf nitrogen
contained per acre iu the crops* were as
follows: Hairy vetch inoculated 109
lbs., not inoculated, 7 lbs. Crimson
t clover, inoculated, 143 lbs., not inocu
lated 4 lbs. -
! ; In these two experiments an average
of 118 pounds of nitrogen per aero was
produced or gained ny inoculation.
The coat of nitrogen in commercial
fertilizers ranges from 15 cents to 17
cents por pound, or we have a net gain
of $10.47 worth cf fertilizer contained
in roots, and inoculating bacteria in
the land, which will pay a handsome
profit on the whole cost of inoculating
Ona farm near Bynum in Harford
County? Maryland, a gain ot nearly 500
per cent. ' actual weight waa mado by
ino'etfafitof the.coU with nitro-culture.
Results of inoculation on crops next
yaftr after inoculating showed a gain of
folio wing, amounts over that which
'Waa not inoculated: Cotton after red
clover gained ?73 pounds per" acre;
Oats, niter crop of velvet beans, gain
ed 25 bushels; Whsat, after crop of
-molilotls, gained S bushels.
All these experiments, lt seems, were
made on poor lands, aha demonstrates
tho.fact, that if oaf poorest lands are
inoculated with fcitro-culta.ro or With
fed!, - f rom inoculated lands, the poorest
land wa nave may bo cheaply brought
up to produce as much or oven more
than our richest' acres in a short
While the great mass of our f fitters
and,. hns??es^ .m*? are looking ont.

his farm. Through these plans bf co

ducta and. putting into practico this
groat-discovery of Dr. Moore's system
of inoculating the soil .with these ni
trogen producing germs we have in
hand the plans by which tho Sbuth
