Dry Farming What It Ik.
Dry farming, as it is called "scien
tific soil culture," as it really is did
not spring up in the past few years. Tt
is old, has been practiced in Palestine
and even in northern Mexico for yoars.
but In the United States it has not been
generally known and followed until the
past eight or ten years. Prof. I lardy
W. Campbell of Lincoln, Neb. and Dr.
C. V. Cook of the state experiment sta
tion in Wyoming, are among the men
who discovered or rediscovered it In the
arid west. They saw that they could
not grow crops on the small annual
rainfall they were getting and set about
to discover how to do better. Their ex
periments in mulching the soil on top
to break up the moisture tubes and
prevent evaporation, and packing It
deeper down, to hold the moisture there,
soon attracted attention, and the sci
ence spread. The Mormons had also
been practicing it in Utah. Now, it is
embraced In every state west of the
Missouri, almost all of which have sev
eral experiment stations for "dry farm
experiments," and is resorted to in all
parts of the United States by men who
have looked into its value and have
adopted It to guard against drouth.
First Dry Farming Congrews.
The first dry farming congress was
held in Denver, Colo., in 1907, -with only
a few delegates present. The next was
held a year follov.-ing in Salt Lake, then
came the third congress in Cheyenne,
