LYNDEN SELLS FOR
LESS THAN EAST
■olui P. Itoerhave Finds Prices
f in Middle-West Higher Than
!That the people of Lynden are
aylng less for merchandise than
ii the Middle West, and that con
itions here from all standpoints
re far superior, are among the
•nprossions brought back from
is Eastern trip by John P. Boer
ave of the Lynden Department
tore, who returned last week.
"Returning to Lynden after an
bseme of nearly two months In
[the East and Middle-West, we
(found Puget Sound an ideal place
in which to live," said Mr. Boer
have today. "At least we met
some former Lyudenites, Mr. and
Mrs. J. Nyhoff of Holland, Mich ,
»jho left here last winter, who
Bcm to think so as they are
figuring on returning to Lynden
in the near future.
"Mrs. Nyhoff told us, and a
comparison of prices showed she
was correct, that she liked Lyn
den much better as a place to
trade than Holland, Mich., a town
of about 12,00(1 people. She
said that dry goods, clothing, and
shoes were a good deal higher
there than in Lynden.
"Conditions in the East are
considerably better than a year
ago and everybody seems to be
optimistic. Money is apparently
quite plentiful, and as far as we
could see, everybody who wants
work is employed."
While in the East, Mr. Boer
have attended the National Mer
chandise Fair, held in the Grand
Central Palace and the Armory,
one of the most important merc
antile exhibitions this country
"Hundreds of manufacturers
and wholesalers had exhibits and
sample lines at this Fair, and a
great deal of time could be saved
by visiting merchants," declared
Mr. Bocrhave. "This is the first
Fair ot its kind ever held in this
country. In Europe, these mer
chandise fairs have beeu held for
hundreds of years, and generally
are very successful.
"While In New York, we made
large purchases of dry goods,
ready to wear, men's and boys
clothing, underwear, etc. Some
of these goods have arrived, but
the bulk are en route and should
•arrive within two or three weeks.
£J great many of these goods
were bought at considerably less
than the regular wholesale price,
for a person who is in the mar

"We have had a great many of
our shipments routed by water
via the canal, thus effecting a
big saving in freight charges,
and these savings we will be able

"We were not affected by the
railroad strike as practically all
the main lines are operating. A
good many trains on the branch
lines have been discontinued,
"New York City experienced
the wettest June in its history,
with 27 days of rain. Except for
a few warm days, the weather
was pleasant in New York. How
ever on our return trip, we stop

and found the weather there too
hot for a white man. If you

TELLS HOW TO SAVE
BERRY FIELDS HERE
County Agent H. B. Carroll Ad
vises Planting of Vetch as Cov
er Crop in Winter
How to protect Lyiulen'a berry
fields from the ravages of a sev
ere winter, such as wrought hav
oc in 1921. is discussed this week
by H. B. Carrol, Jr., county agent.
■Mr. Carroll advocates the plant
ing of Vetch for use as fertilizer
or cover crop in the fields.
Says Mr. Carroll:
Careless and wasteful methods
of farming have reduced the crop
producing values of millions of :
| acres of land in the United States
Men have constantly taken from |
| the soil without returning fer
jtility until only a fraction of the
(crop producing power of the soils j
j were left.
j Little attention has been paid j
■to this by the American farmer
jin general until finally the sup-'
ply of new and fertile, easily
I cleared lands in the West began ;
Ito give out, and then he began !
jto look for means of keeping up
•nd increasing his crops. On!
j looking across to Europe we find j
I that these questions have been
| much better handled there, so i
• much so that the average yield |
iof potatoes in England is much
Ihigher than here, and the same'
lis equally«true of many other j
i Even in this new country of
i Washington crops have rapidly
I fallen away in many of the older
sections. The apple orchards of
Wenatchee and Yakima under
the system of clean cultivation
practiced a few years ago soon
began to produce fewer and smal- 1
! ler apples. The prune orchards
of southwest Washington began
to show the same results. The
valley soils of Western Washing
ton after being farmed for years I
show decreased yields, and much
of the upland in Western Wash-|
jington is naturally not high in
! fertility. This problem has at j
1 once become important. Berries
I particularly show the need of j
I more fertility and better soil j
i treatment. In the orchard and
j berry sections manure helps but
'cannot be obtained cheap enough
land in large enough quantities
to meet the requirements.
Much thought has been given
to this problem and many tests
made by the State Experiment '
Station and by progressive grow
lers. More nitrogen is generally
'needed In the soils and sometimes
phosphorus and potash to secure
, good crops, but of equal or great
er importance Is it to have a soil
filled with humus which is simp
ly dec aying organic matter. This,
lot course Is supplied by manure
and where available is excellent.
In this humus there are millions
lof bacteria which by their act
ivities dissolve bits of the ele
jmenta out of the soil compounds
! which are needed by growing
\ plants for food. In this way it is
'said that humus puts life and
'available fertility into the soil.
In the orchard! it was found
that alfalfa, clover and Vetch j
planted as a cover crop, met these
varied demands. The vetch or
alfalfa when plowed under or,
left to rot down, supplied con
siderable amounts ot humus and i
:also these plants being legumes;
[were able by the use of the bac-j
J teria which live on their roots,
to gather nitrogen out of the air |
land to store it up in themselves;
and in the soil. This in turn was j
I used by the trees and crops began 1
•to improve at once. Today all
the successful orcbardists in these !
I districts use this method of keep-1
ing up the soil fertility.
Where irrigation is not done
M in Western Washington, vetch |
is best in the orchards and berry
fields, and to make more humus
in the winter, rye or winter;
wheat is added. Hairy or winter j
vetch is more hardy and is best ,
I for sandy light soils. Spring
vetch costs less and is generally
hardy enough in Whatcom Coun
! ty. 40 lbs. of vetch plus 30 or 40
i lbs. of wheat or rye makes a
good mixiure for an acre of ber
ries. This mixture seeded early
iln the fall, late August or early
September, makes a fine cover
crop to plow under in April or
May the following year. The
I plowing must be done early
enough in the spring in order
Ithat there-may be plenty of
; moisture left for the development
!of the fruit. This will of course
1 vary in a few years previous, the
seed should be inoculated with
