Some Facts About Potash
TjOTASH is higher than last ynar because of scarcity brought about by war in
Europe and recent decree by Germany entirely prohibiting further exports, but
the iucrcased cost, if proportioned to tho amount of fertilizers used per acre, is
a small item.
For Potash in mixed goods, our charge at this time is at the rate of ?1.50 per
unit potash (present market price $2.50 to $3.00 per unit) :?in comparison with
SI .00 per unit last season. A difference of only 5?c. per unit. This increased cost,
per acre of land, is insignificant, as you will see by the following:?
2% POTASH GOODS?Increase 50c per Ton for Potash
200 lbs. Fertilizer per acre.Cost of potash .r> c. more than last ynar.
300 lbs. Fertilizer per acre._.Cost of potash 7Jc. more than lost year.
400 lbs. Fertilizer per acre.Cost of potash 10 c. more than last year.
500 lbs. Fertilizer per acre.Cost of potash 12Jc. more than last year.
3% POTASH GOODS?Increase $1.00 per Ton for Potash
200 lbs. Fertilizer per aore.Cost of potash !0c. moro than last year.
300 lbs. Fertilizer per acre._.Cost of potash 15c. more than last year.
400 lbs. Fertilizer per acre.Cost of potash 20c. moro than last year..
500 lbs. Fertilizer per acre. *..Cost of potash 25cv more than lost year.
This is a very small increase in charge far Potash when you consider that Muri
ate of Potash is now selling at about $126.00 to $150.00 per ton (equivalent to $2.50
to$3.00 per unit 6f Potash) at ports, for cash in large quantities, whereas our present
charge of $1.50 per unit is for goods delivered, time payment.
Our price per unit of Ammonia delivered is $3.25 against $3.50 last year. A
reduction of 25c. per unit, although Cotton Seed Meal is now selling approximately
at the rate of $3.40 to $3.50 per unit of Ammonia. Our charge per unit for Avail
. able Phosphoric Acid is tho same as last year,?60c. per unit.
If you want Fertilizers containing Potash,
write or apply to our nearest Sales Office.

Ordinarily you would not risk growing your Crop
without Potash. Why do so this year when the cost per

The Vulue of Spare Moments.
Most of, us do not realize the real
value of spare moments. This is es
pecially true among the pupils of the
rurul school's. In order to learn to
appreciate the value and advantageous .
purpose, one should have access to a
well supplied library. In the country
schools the libraries contain a few
volumes which are very good, while
the rout are novels. Novels do not in
struct, they merely entertain and hold
the reader spelt-bound with interest.
They are ruinous to ones character.
The libraries should contain books
which are worth while such as the
works of Shakespeare, Scott, Tenny
son, Dickens.Kiplings and, Victor Hugo.
There can he wonders accomplished
by reading for a few moments each
day one of the above mentioned
books. There Is no better way to
j make the spare moments count tiian
to always be on the alert for im
proving the mind. And spur,, mo
ments may he found by never losing
them. Make each moment count.
Any one may become very well edu
cated by studying Shakespeare and
Scott's works for ten minutes each
day. How often the pupils sit idle,
while they could he endeavoring to
learn something of the heat hooks. It J
doesn't take long for one to become [
accustomed to good hooks. Yet there
are sonn? who never know what lo
read. When you are" conversing with
them on the subject of reading nnd
ask them for a list of what they have
read, they reply "I have read the mo^t
books,- and they are all fiction too."
Poems are to be preferred to fiction,
it is astonishing how a few moments
spent euch day in profitable'reading
will enable you to enlarge your vocah- !
ulary and to be more serious in life. 1
Anyone who lias any ambition can ac
quire a considerable amount of
knowledge by studying the works of
the above mentioned authors faith
