'roubles Spreading to Ulster and
Bringing Political Hazards.
Dublin, April 4 (By the Associated
Press.)-T'he opinion was expres-sed
todlay by competent observers tij-t
the Irih sitation h1ad 1unidelrgonle
consideriable change for the bettei
since St. Patrick's day. A month ago
Dublin derided the peace prophets,
but today predictions that there soon
will be a settlement of the con
troversy are un iversal. Lloyds de
elined to accept bets offered during
the week that peace would be
brough t about before August.
Outwardly conditionis have Iot im
proved. There has been no cessationi
of warfare in any part of the dis
turbed distr-icts, and1( thle trouible is
spreading to Ulster.
Factors servingr to stimulate the
optimistic view of the situation are
the frank admission of Premier Lloyd
George of the government's failure
to solve the Irish problem; the ap
pointment of a Roman Catholie vice
roy; Eamonn De Valera's latest pro
nounceieits, wliich are interpreted
ashowing the willingiess of the
Sinn Fvein for what is deemed a rea
sonable compromise; England's inter
nal troubles, wh ich1 are declat red to
be inotensiflied by the coal strike; the

Clemson College, April 4.-The C
following practices are advisable in t

P. Blackwell, agronomist. t
' 1. Thorough preparation of the h

2. Application of a fertilizer con- t
taming a small amount of readily a
available ammonia. The fertilizer
should be well mixed with the soil r
A before, planting, so that seed will not C

3. Planting of only varieties that i
iy have proved their worth under boll t
