told by witnessing a performance of

In his discussion of Illinois soils at
the State Farmers' institute, Professor
Cyril (J. Hopkins of the university gave
the following definite information about
the waste and the value of farm ma
nure when used in different ways.
Unquestionably the greatest loss to
American agriculture today is the enor
mous waste of farm manure. Careful
estimates by the U. S. department of
agriculture show that the 180,000.000
domestic animals produce annually
wo and one-third billiou dollars' worth
of manure. The average corn crop for
he past ten years has been two and
one-fourth billion bushels, and this
would have to be worth $105 per bushel
to equal the value of the manure.
Ten 'II men the Commercial fertiliser.
Farmers will agree that at least ono-
third of the manure produced is wast-
d on the average American farm. If
his is true, then the 75 million dollarj'
worth of commercial fertilizer used in
he United States each year is equal to
only one-tenth of the annual waste in
Diligent inquiry in various parts of
the state leads to the belief that one
half of the land on 90 per cent of the
farms has never received a dressing of
farm manure. I have found only one
man who owns 160 acres or more of
land who has had manure, which was
made only from crops grown on that
farm, applied over the entire farm.
Three Kiniln of Value In Manure.
1 tie positive or intrinsic value of
farm manure lies in the amounts of
valuable plant food which it contains.
It also possesses an important indirect
value as a soil stimulent (its decay
liberating plant food from the soil).
Another distinct value is that the m
nure makes the soil more porus anl
spongy, increasing its pow?r to absorb
and retain moisture and to resist sur
face washing. This last named physi
cal value is frequently overestimated,
while the value of manure for plant
food which it supplies and for that
which it liberates from the soil, is
some times almost ignored.
Both practical experience and exac
scientific investigation furnish a vast
amount of information about thesj
different values of manure. Organic
matter from peat beds, hauled and
spread on the land, has as great pow
er as farm manure for physical im
provement of th soil, but it produces
no such effect on crop yields as does
manure, because the peat does not de
cay readily so as to furnish plant food
Manure made from clover hay and
heavy grain rations has much greater
value than manure made from wheat
straw, because of the great difference
in plant food and rapidity of decay
!oth affect the physical condition of
the soil alike.
At the famous Rothamsted (En
land) agricultural experiment station
the average of field yields of wheat for
a half century were: with no manure
and no plant food added, 13.1 bushel3;
with heavy annual application of farm
manure, 35.7 bushels; with commer
cial plant food without organic1 matte-
37.1 bushels. This shows that the
physical effect of the manure was not
so important as that of its plant food.
Showing; the Phynlenl Effeet.
But the very important physical ef
feet of manure was shown at Rotham
sted the very dry season of 1893 when
land treated with commercial plant
fod produced only 21.7 bushels of
(wheat, while the farm manure plot
produced 34.2 bushels. In semi-art 1
regions the physical condition of the
soil and its power to absorb and retain
moisture may be the controling factor
in crop yields, but in Illinois under nor
mal conditions the controlling factor is
l The greatest problem in handling
which bears the signature
manure is to prevent the loss of i
plant food. The value of average fresii
farm manure is about $2.25 a ton,
whether figured at thn market value-.;
of plant food it contains (as shown bv
chemical analysis! or by the value -f
increased crop yields produced by t'l j
manure. This means that a pile of I'l l
tons of such manure is worth $225. if
exposed to leaching from heavy rain
during only two or three months :n tlu
spring the value will be reduced t
about $150 by the loss of plant food.;
without much, if any, reduction in to-1
tal weight. Fermentation and addi
tional leaching during the summer m.i
easily reduce the value to $100 or les.i.
Two ooil MethoiU of Hiindlini;.
One satisfactory method is to haul
and spread the fresh manure daily o:
twice a week. Another is to allow th-;
manure to accumulate in the stall or
covered shed while it is constantly
tramped by the animals and kept
moist, sufficient bedding being used tr
aosoro ine excess or liquid, and tnen should add phosphorus to it. Thus w
to haul and spread it on the land whe.i Can balance manure, and when us- I
conditions permit. But it should norion sojs rieii j potassium in rotation

A Preparation Discovered That Will
Destroy the Dandruff Germ.
For some time is has been kuov:i
that dandruff is caused by a germ t tip t
digs up the scalp into little whit.'
flakes, and by sapping the vitality ol
the hair at the root, causes falling hai-.
and. of course, finally baldness. For
years there have been all kinds of li.iii
stiinuiants and scalp tonics on th"
market, hut thre has been no pernri-
nent cure for dandruff until the dis
covery of a preparation called Xev.
liro's Herpicide, which destroys the
dandruff germ. Destroy the cause, the
effect will cease to exist. Kill the
