The problem of fertilizing dry land Is
-not the same as fertilizing moist laud or
inni in thp humid regions where the
sQil contajns a fair supply .of moisture
at aJl seasons of the year. The writer is
informed by T. C. . Wallace, of Cali
fornia, that in the dry soils of Califor
nia the roots of the grape vines are very
deep in the soil, and that, where irriga
tion Is or is not practiced, it is found to
be very difficult to properly fertilize the
vineyards and orchards. It is a problem
on whjeh many are working, but it is
doubtful if 'any have fully solved it

Land habitually dry is exceedingly
difficult to fertilize, for the reasontnat
the fertility remains in the soil without
being submitted to the .agencies that
would change it into materials that the
r)ots of trees and vines can use.
In the fertilizing of orchards and vine-,
yards the fertilizer should be got
into the soil and should be applied at
times of the year when the moisture sup- j
ply is likely to be good but is not over
If barnyard .manure is to be placed in
the surface oil of an orchard, it should
be got in in the falls- before the com

to be applied to the surface, it should be

If the fertilizer Is a highly nitrogen
ous -one, like the dried blood, it should
be worked into the soil in the spring as
early as possible. If it is applied in the
fall, a large part of the soluble plant
food will disappear before spring. The
part of this that will be most lost will
be the nitrogen, the very ingredient for
which the blood' is applied. Yet, if it Is
applied too late in the spring to get the
benefit of the spring moisture, the ni
trogen is likely to be largely dissipated
into the air. . .

STARTING PLANTS FOR
. THE VEGETABLE GARDEN
Bulletin Issued from Mesilla Park College
Agricultural College, N. M., Jan. 29
J. E. Mundell, who is at the head of
the agricultural department of this In
stitution, has just compiled the. follow
ing bulletin which should prove of
benefit to early gardeners.
It is nearing the season of the year
( when the early gardener will want to
start a few plants for early vegetables.
The hotbed offers one of the easiest
means to do this. To prepare the hot-
i bed make a frame or box the size de
sired for it. The size varies but the
usual size is from 4 to 6 feet wide
and as long as desired. It Is not a good
idea to make the bed too wide because
it prevents the grower from easily
reaching the cen-ter when he is weeding
It. The frame can be made out of
common one by six inch lumber, but
heavier material may be used if de
sired. After sawing off the pieces for
the four sides nail them together at
corners. Place this box over the place
marked for the hotbed. At each cor
ner and in the center of eacht piece, on
the outside of the frame, sink or drive

I'repnring the Soil.
When the frame has been prepared
as above, dig out the soil inside of it
to aepth of 24 inches. When dig
ging out this pit it is a good plan to
make It a litle bigger at the bottom
than at the top so that the heating
material when placed in the pit will be
under the whole surface of the area
inside tho frame.
Into this pit place the heating ma
terial from 16 to 20 inches deep. Care

down firmly and evenly so as to make
the mass compact and smooth on top.
On top of this place five or six inches
of rich well crumpled loamy soil. After
the. temperature of the soil has become
somewhat uniform the seed may be

Planted. After the planting oi. the : seen
rapidly from the soil. This being the ,
case it is important to apply more water
than is ordinarilv reauirea in " , v
side bed. Probably mor.e failures are,l
caiispil in irrowiner nlants in the hotbed ;
by injudicious and improper watering j -
than from any other cause.
To Heat the Bed.
In regard tp the kind of material to
use for heating, fresh horse manure i
probably the best. In preparing the J
manure for the hotbed, secure -
amount needed for It and place the
same in a pile. When piling it up put
on enough witter to thoroughly moisten
the whole mass. If fermentation does
not commence soon it can bo hastened
by throwing upon the pile a few buck
ets of hot water. When the manure
has begun to heat well turn over the
whole mass into a new pile. Tnis wm
make the heating of the whole uniform.
If necessary add more water. The fer
menting manure should not be allowea
to become dry nor should it be, made
too wet. After the heating has become
somewhat uniform the manure can 1 oe
put Into the hovtbed pit as described
above. If the manure used is very nne
and does, not contain much straw or
other litter, it is better to add borne
straw or other coarse material. J-nis
helps to make the heating more uni
form and prevents too rapid fermenta
tion of the manure, thus causing the
heat to last longer.
The Co verinff.
The kind of covering to use for the
hotbed depends upon the, material at
hand. The regular cold frame sash may
be used. The size most common in use
is the three by six foot sash. The com
frame In connection with the maur
furnishes abundant heat for the coldest

the corn is laid away, preferably In a

shelves two or three inches deep, and

use in the hotbed. Twenty inches of
manure in the hotbed ought to furnish
enough heat to last six or eight weeks.

How to keep the boys on the farms
Is a problem that has been interesting
! people for a great many years. Fred
W. Averjr, of Natchez, illss., says that
In his state they have formed corn
growing clubs, and by offering prlzes
tb juveniles, "have worked them up to
a state of tremendous enthusiasm. One
lad under 18 years not long ago took
first prize and astonished the whole j
country by his extraordinary harvest j
of 2,38 bushels .of corn from a single j
acre, the yield, being all the more re- j
markable as it was in a section not'
specially adapted to corn. Another
youth in the same club was the proud
producer of 101 bushel3 on an acre.
Over 200 boys were in that particular
club, and tho results attained by them
far .surpassed these of the older men ;
who had similar organization."

The ideal combination of conditions
leading to success in farming in the
arid and semi-arid west is found where
it is possible to have a relatively small
tract of well irrigated land adjacent to
a large area of dry farming and graz
ing land. This permits of the widest
diversity of occupation and the round
ing out of an establishment practi
cally complete in Itself. The irrigated
land is capable of producing each year
one or more good crops which can be
counted on with almost mathematical
precision. "Where the climate is fa
vorable, fruit trees, berries, bushes and
garden, vegetables flourish, and shade
trees or flowers are possible for the
beautifying of the home.
On the adjacent dry farming land,

years, tne grains or other standard
field crops can be produced. If In ex
ceptionally dry seasons or by reason
of hot winds these crops are not suc

a favorable year when the crops will
repay the labor lost during the lean
years. The dry farming land also serves
