This article Is not written so ranch
to put tho farmer wise as to the uso
of chemical fertilizer, ns lo guard
falm against tho ngent who would
urgo upon him tho two of what Is
commonly called "Completo Fertilis
ers." A completo fertiliser contains
a cortnln percentago of thrco of tho
principal constituents of plant food,
vis: Nitrogen, Phosphoric Acid nnd
lVitnsh; this you piirchnso with n
llller that Is worthless to you nnd
for which you pny ns much as you do
for tho fertilizer. Thousands ot dol
lars havo been more than wasted on
theso commercial fertilizers In Ken
tucky nlono, but slnco 190G this vrnato
has been gradually falling off owing
to tho Institute work thnt was Intrtv
duced about tha time; nnd oxperta
from tho Agricultural Collegs nnd Ex
periment station nt Islington, Ky
havo been drilling tho fanners ot
tho State how to procuro these val
uable nuxllllarles tn their farm opera
tions nt a cost so thnt they can get
maximum yields at minimum cost
Commercial fertilizers nro valueless

tion, which Is brought about by what
Is known ns nitrification Induced by
living organisms called nitrifying Uac'

and henco no nitrification.
Without nitrification the phosphor

bo released, naturo wisely locks It up

farm becomes a barren wasto. iiui
bow aro wo to avoid this alarming
condition, nnd how nro wo to sub

most expcnslvo fertilizer, and yet
naturo supplies it rreo or cost u wo
nro not too arbitrary to allow her to
assist us. Her frlondly offices can

growing of legumes: legumes are
plants that bear their seeus in pons,

tho nitrogen In tho crop back again

needed humus to release phosphorus

as to the rotation: mane a ponect

another article- sow to wheat and
clover, tho clover to bo sown witn
the wheat, and adding one hundred
nounds of bono meal to tne acre

Btate. nnd Is" eminently successful
Thn bono meal is giving you phos

Take oft tho first crop of clovor

tor corn. This Is only a method, but
It must be nnarent to any man ot
good Judgment that It Is practical
and based on good logic; it Is not a
theory, as we shall not Indulge In
anything that Is not practical, and
which has not proven succossiui. n,

Kl.iimig of the now year.
