Are You Using Nitragin?
Your neighbors are using it and they say it increases
the yield of the crop'to which it is applied, from 25 to 100
per cent. Besides this it causes that crop to store in eaich
aere of ground from 100 to 200 pounds of pure nitrogen
for the benefit of the next crop. Nitrogen in commer
cial fertilizers costs YOU about 20 cents a pound. Use
Nitragin and you get it FREE from the air, Apply it to
all your Peas, Beans and other pod bearing !or legume
crops. Can you afford to pay 20 cents a pound for Nitro
gen when your neighbor gets it FREE?

FOR THE CANAL ZONE
Colombia Does Not 4trant Rtight For
New Canal. No Conling Privileges.
Washington, April 8.-Undisgulsed
gratilcation was felt by administra
tion officials here today at the pros
pect of finally healing the breach be
tween the United S'tates and Colombia
tirough the treaty signed at Ilogota
yesterday. If this convention is rati
fled by the two countries, as ofilcials
are confident it will be, it will close
amicable a bitter controversy, brought
on 'the secehson of Panama in 1903
and the granting to the United States
the Canal Zone and which the Wash
ington govern-ment has felt handicap
ped it in its rela-tions with all Latin
Substantial details of the treaty be
came known here today.
The principal article provides for the
Payment to Colombia of $24,000,000 six
months after ratifleations have been
exchanged between the two countries,
as indemnity for the losses she has
sistained. This Is granlted in a lump
sumit and the treaty does not attempt
to specify how muich of this amount
is In repa rat ion for the loss of Pan
a ma or how much for the loss of the
l'antamita taillway rights.
Colomlila is granted the right to ship
coal, salt and petroleum from her At
!antic to her 'acille iports, eIther
through the canal or across the Pan
ama Railway, without any charge
other than tihle cost of freight, no diuty
being assessed . These articles are not
prodliced along the Pacific side of the
country and mountains prevent easy
commuinintca fion overland through Co
A third article fixes the boundary

territory which has been claimed by
Panama. This linte is the same as
that which was provided lin the Cortes
