Some Causes of Low Yields
in Vermilion Parish.
BY T. H. CASANOVA
After good seed, the next
best thing to do to incre-'e
the yealds of crop per acre is
to deepen the seed bed. Corn
and cotton, especially, in Ver
milion Parish are usually
planted in ground that has
been plowed r nywhere from
three to six inches deep.
Even if this land were very
fertile and even through the
farmer added sufficient a
mounts of commercial fertil
zer, the possibilities for a
great yield of corn would be
Humus, or decayed plant or
animal matter is one of the
first essentials in producing a
bumper crop. All of our soils

with a long period of one crop
atic systems and the same depth
of plowing on the same land
and the same direction have
di- decreased the amount of
'as- h, anus in the soil and conse
ry. quently lowered the capacity
of the hold capillary moisture
_ that is so necessary and essen
the tial to the proper welfare of
the plant. With two inch
plowihg in the fall our land
of has the capacity of a storing
'ii- up two inches of moisture in
the winter, during rain, to
give the plant food during the
ds period of drouth during the
summner. By increasing the
depth of the fall plowing to at
pt least eight inches so as to give
the soil a greater capacity of
catching and holding water
that is so plentiful during the
mouths of winter the possibili
r- ties for a good harvest are al
s There is another and equal
ly important reason for deeper
plowing for increased yield of
crops. Nature has wisely lock- I
e ed in the bosom of the earth
great quantities of plant food
that are unloosed by the che
mical change caused by con
tact with the oxegen in the
air. If this unavailable plant
food is turned over properly,
so that it comes in contact c
a with the winter freeze it breaks
up and by the action of the
gases in the air and become .t
available, of fit to be used by
the roots of the plant.

form humus for tie sp;l i:l 1
crop. Deep pl!owing, the ut e w :
of covec crops to retain the
plant food elements through tl

in every available acre will do I"
a great deal toward the in

With .t friend or two;

But the world is made---do you under
Of a friend or two;
A song to sing and a crust to share
With a friend or two;
A smile to give and a grief to hear
With a friend or two;
.\ road to walk and a goal to win,
An iikle::ook to find comfort in,
The gtlallest hours that we know, bed.s
With a friend or two;
A little laughter, perhaps some tears,
With a friend or two;
The days, the weeks, and the months
With a friend or two;
A vale to cross and a hill to climb,
A mock at age and a jeer at time--.
The prose of life takes the lilt of rhymG
With a frlend or two;
Then brim the goblet and quaffthe
To a friend or two;
For clad the man who can always boast
Of a friend or two;
The fairest sight is a friendly fore,
The blithest tread is a friendly pace,
And heaven will be a better place
For a friend or two.
It is one of the penalties of
a busy life, such as I lead,
that I often cannot find the'
time to sit in the inglenook or
stop in the fence corner and
chat with "a friend or two."
There is so much work to be
done, the day is so short, and
so we go along denying our
selves the pleasure which we
crave---the grip of the clasp- ,
ing hand, the cheery word of
friendship that will lighten
the burdens of the day and rob e
the nighttime of its darkness. '

when we do not stop, every; h
little while, to get the full f
value out of our friendships,.
