This feature of preparing the
ground for crops is often misunder
stood by the farmer. A misapplica
tion of the process or the use of an
implement that does not fulfill the
requirements, is apt to do more harm
The subsoil plow is beneficial in
just two ways namely, first to assist
in storing water in the deeper sub
soils, and second to break up a hard

easily be penetrated by plant roots.
If subsoil is brought to the sur
face, or any great quantity is mixed
with the seed-bed, the fertility of
that seed-bed is correspondingly les
sened, for the reason that subsoil
does not often contain a sufficient
amount of humus to maintain soil
bacteria or if the plow crumbles the
compact soil below the bottom of the
furrow to such an extent that large
air spaces are formed, the movement
of capillary water is rotarded and
the plant suffers for moisture.
The Modern Subsoil Plow, in fact
the only one that has been devised
that fulfills all of the requirements
and in no instance can do harm, is

TEA AND COFFEE TALK
What we wish to do at this time is
to give you a little Tea and Coffee talk.
Hundreds of Bemidji's most particular
coffee and tea drinkers, use our
coffees and teas and will have no other
kind. We are Bemidji agents for Chase
and Sanborn's famous brands, known
everywhere for their rich, delicious and
smooth flavor, and pride ourselves on
being able to give our customers such
superior and high-quality goods and at
prices no higher thanyou pay elsewhere.
Coffees with 'catchy"names, which
are put up in "handsome" packages
and "boomed" with presistence, appear
every day. Their real character is often
disappointing, and is frequently indi
cated in their ultimate disfavor. "Chase
and Sanborn's Coffees" remain in favor
year after after year, and have increased
largely in sale simply because they are
always true to type, are absolutely pure
and always of finest selection.

an implement that cuts a gash in the
soil below the bottom of the furrow.
The cutting part is a sharp thin
blade, not more than one-half inch
in thickness, and attached to the bot
tom end of the cutting blade is a de
tachable point slightly thicker than
the blade.. The depth is regulated
by a gauge wheel attached t'o the end
of the beam.
The implement is not intended to
bring subsoil to the surface, nor to
materially crumble or break it up,
but simply to make an opening below
the depth of the surface plow for the
purpose of freely admitting air and
water to the deeper subsoils. The
small point forms a reservoir for wa
ter, and from it water naturally
spreads outwards, and obeying the
law of capillary attraction, it moves
upwards followed by air. Air and
water acting in that way mellow the
soil thereby effectually destroying a
hard pan or any extreme compact
ness of the ground that may exist.
The soil below the bottom of the fur
row may be, and often is, impervious
to water and air from above, but
when these elements are placed in a
lower stratum of soil the results are
remarkable. The process is nicely
shown by pouring water-

A colored couple was taken before

to straighten out the family trouble
so the couple could continue to live

have three children to support on
that," said the judge. 'It is evident

in a floor that lays upon an under
floor. Everyone knows that water
so placed, if the crack is covered,
will come up through the boards by
the process of capillary attraction
and in a short time rot them.
As a rule it is not necessary to run
the plow more than six or eight inch
es deep and only in every other fur
row. Subsplling is of no benefit in
loose, sandy or gravel soil.
This type of plow absolutely solves
the problem of storing water in semi
arid regions. It solves the problem
of breaking up a hard pan, making
mellow compact subsoils. It solves
the problem of permitting plant
roots to grow deep.
A Simple, Harmless Remedy Quickly
Restores Catarrhal Deafness
The thousands who suffer the mis
eries of colds and catarrh and claim
they have never found a cure can get
instant relief by simply anointing
the nostrils with Ely's Cream Balm.
Unlike internal medicines which
upset the stomach, or strong snuffs
which only aggravate the trouble,
this cleansing, healing, antiseptic
Balm instantly reaches the seat of
the trouble, stops the nasty, dis
charge, clears the nose, head and
throat, and brings back the sense of
taste, smell and improves the hear
ing. More than this, it strengthens
the weakened and diseased tissues,
thus protecting you against a return
of the trouble. This remedy will cure
a cold in a day, and prevent its be
coming chronic or resulting catarrh.
Nasal catarrh is an inflammation
of the membrane lining the air pass
ages, and cannot be reached by mix
tures taken into the stomach, nor can
it be cured by snuffs and powders
which only cause additional irrita
tion. Don't waste time on them.
Get a 50 cent bottle of Ely's Cream
Balm from your druggist, and after
using it for a day you will wish you
had tried it sooner.
Mothers should give the children
Ely's Cream Balm for colds and
croup. It is perfectly harmless, and
pleasant to take.
