Fertilization of Wheat
The following statement concernini
the fertilization of wheat this fall win
issued by the department of agricultura
extension at Purdue University, July
The fertilization of the wheat cror
was never more important than it will
be this fall. From every part of Indiana
come reports of excellent results secur
ed from fertilization and the very pool
yields of wheat secured from unfertiliz
-ed soil. By fertilizing, the farmer
swaps dollars for-eagles.
Evidence on the profitableness of
fertilizing the wheat is abundant. In
1.116 L. M. Waggoner of St. Joseph
county, applied 200 pounds of acid phos
-'hate to the acre on all but a small part
a field sown to wheat. From the fer
'tilized part he secured 22.4 bushels of
wheat to the acre, and on the unfertil
ized, 12.5 bushels to the acre-a gain of
'1.9 bushels, due to fertilizing.
This year 200 pounds of acid phos
-phate will cost about $2.25, and; wheat
is worth $2.00 per bushel. On this basis
the increase secured by Mr. Wagonner
would be worth $19.80 and the profit
after counting expenses of applying fer
tilizer and paying for harvesting and
marketing the increased crop would be
more than $5 an acre. If that isn't a
case of swapping dollars for eagles it
comes very near to it.
The Ohio experiment station of Woos
ter, as an average for the last twepity
two years, has secured an increase of
8.0 bushels to the acre from an applica
tion of 160 pounds of acid phosphate to
the acre. The unphosphated yield has
been 11.2 bushels and the phosphated
19.2 bushels. Where 1000 pounds of
potash has been added to the phosphate
the yield has been 20.4 bushels to the
acre, or an increase of 1.2 bushels more
than was secured from phosphate alone.
Even at present prices for wheat and
before-the-war prices for potash the in
crease in the wheat crop was not suf
fcient to pay the cost of the potash.
The addition of potash to fertilizers
containing phosphorous and nitrogen
will not be profitable when applied to
clay and loam soils.
Nine farmers out of ten should fer
tilize wheat this fill. Fertilizer not
.only increases the yield directly, but
the greater supply of available plant
food makes stronger plants that with
stand the attack of fungus diseases and
insects better than those unfertilized.
At present prices the farmer may ex
pect a return of at least five dollars for
every dollar spent for wheat fertilizer
The importance of ordering early
cannot be too strongly emphasized.
Those who order early will get what
they want, while those who order late
will have to take what is left or do with

Mr. Frank Thomas, a railroad man,
address R. F. D. No. 3, Columbia, S. C.,
says: "If ever there was a remedy that
has done me good it is Ironized Paw.
Paw. I was afflicted with stomach
troubles, sluggish liver and nervousness.
Reading-in the newspapers the good
you were doing I decided to give it a
trial as I could get no relief and since
y(.ur remedy was not a "cure-all," but
compounded for just such troubles as I
was suffering from.- I gave it a most
thorough test, taking it strictly accord
ing to directions. The result has been
very gratifying. I feel now full of en
ergy; my liver is acting quite normal
and my stomach feels like new-all the
nervous feeling has eft me, and I can
honestly say that Ironized Paw-Paw does
all that you say it will. I certainly will
always have some at home, as it is good
for old and young alike."
So the good reports come in from
every section. One cured person spreads
the news to his friends of this depend
able tonic which wakes old stomachs
almost as good Us new, and so the wave
of health goes on and on. People who
have been troubled for years with sleep
lessness say that since taking Ironized
Paw-Paw they can sleep all night and
get up feeling strong and refreshed. If
you need a tonic, if you need strength
and good cheer, try a bottle of Ironized
Paw-Paw and become as happy as Mr.

if he doesn't it is sold in Pickens by the
