Dr. Knapp's lectures covered every de

One very noticeable thing in connec

secee of advocating the use of commer

The idea is to embrace natures way of
restoring fertility to worn out soil, and
studyin- those principles and acting up
on them so as not to rob the soil of its
fertility. but to aid to it annually, et
