The first edition of 25,000 copies of
"Farm Truth No. 1" issued by the
Southern Settlement and Development
Organization, bearing the title
"Ground Limestone for Southern
Soils," by Dr. Cyril 0. Hopkins, Direc
tor of Agriculture of the Organization
is, being distributed throughout the
Southern States. It is going to farm
ers, live stock raisers, newspapers,
farm journals, agricultural colleges,
boards of Crade and kindred organ
izations and individuals who are in
terested in quickening the develop
ment of the South. It is a pamphlet
of 38 pages, written in simple lan
guage and goes into the details of the
-methods of using limestone to cor
rect soil acidity, giving the reasons
for its use. The author, until recent
ly, was head agronomist and chemist
of the College of Agriculture of the
University of Illinois, and is the orig
inator of the Illinot ssystem of ag
riculture based upon the use of lime
The opening paragraph sets forth
the situation -in the Southern States.
as the author sees It, as follows:
"0 limestone country is a rich coun
try.' This is a proverb and a truism
much older than American agricul
ture. But every soil can be made a
limestone soil, simply by liberal at)
plications of pulverized limestone.
The initial application of four tons
per acre of ground limestone, with
subsequent applications of two tons
per acre every four years, will make
and -maintain a limestone soil on
every Southern farm; and this is the
first great economic stelf to be taken
in that positive soil enrichment which
is needed to treble the average acre
yield of the land now under cultiva
tion and to restore to profitable -ag
ricultural use the vast areas of tilla
ble land now lying neglected or agri
culturally abandoned in most South
Taking up the question of the inti
mate relationship between limestone
and legumes Dr. Hopkins writes:
"With liberal application of lime
stone (and phosphorus or pottassium
added, if needed) most Southern soils
can be made to prdouce abundant
crops of such valuable biennial or
perennial legunies as red clover, al
sikp clover, sweet clover (mellilotus)
and alfalfa; and these when infected
with the proper bacteria have direct
access, almost twelve months in the
year, to the inexhaustible supply of
nitrogen in the air. The biennial and
periennial legumes store up very
much more nitrogen and organic nat
ter in their roots than (1o the annual
plants, such as cowpeas, and one seed
ing (sometimes with a nurse crop and
with no extra preparation of the seed
bed) may provide a legume crop to
occupy the land for from two years to
five years or more.
"These deep-rooting legumes are
the 'best subsoilers,' and in nmany
ways they are the best soil-improv
ing crops. Furthermore, they are
splendid pasture crops, and if not
cropped too closely (a bad practice
for any pasture) they will furnish
grazing from early spring till early
winter. These are among the most
valuable crops in profitable livestock
farming;' and nothing is needed more
for the- development of live stock in
the South. Moreover, clover and al
falfa are the best crops5 to precede
corn, as is well known by every corn
"Limestone and legumes must con
stitute the foundation for corn and
cattle in the South."'
The pamphlet quotes many well
known agricultural authorities in sup
port of the limestone doctrine andl
gives a iist of sources and the cost
of ground limestone, in the several
S'outhern Staites. There is a foreword
by Vice President W. H. Mansa of the
Organization, in which he says:
"It is wveil known that the South
possesses the only extensive ar'eas'o't
unused tillable landls in thme humid
parts of the United States and a'ffords

the hope that it will aid the efforts of
