That happens in a moment which
may not happen In a thousand years.
DO YOU KNOW just what your cotton and corn
need, and are you furnishing it in such quantities
as required and In such shape that the
plant can use it ?
Suppose you should put the food for your stock in a
bo*, nail it up and place it in their trough?would you ex?
pect them to thrive and grow fat ?
Well, did it ever occur to you that when you use lumpy,
badly mixed fertilizers you are putting this same proposi- .
tiou up to your crops?offering them plant food in such
shape that they can't get to it ?
Fertilizers, to do your crops any good, must dissolve in
the soil waters. These are constantly in motion, rising to
the surface during the day and sinking at night?passing
and re passing the roots of the plant, which absorb the food
contained in the water?and this is the only way in which
the plant can feed.
Therefore, when you buy fertilizer, you should do so
with the idea of furnishing food for your crop and on the
same principle that you should purchase food for your
stock. It should not only coutain the necessary Ammonia,
Phosphoric Acid and Potash, but above aH else these
should be In soluble form?the mechanical condition
of the fertilizer should be such as to permit the plant to
absorb every particle of it, and the goods should be manu?
factured from materials that will not give up their plant
food at one time, but furnish a steady supply throughout
the entire growing season.
This is tho iertilizer you should have and can ?et?
in only one way. It is impossible to produce a i.roods like
this by the dry-mixing of raw materials, whether you do
this at home with a shovel and a screen or buy it from
someone who has made it the same way?the only differ?
ence being in the quantity. *
These n. at trials must be ground to a powder, and it re?
quires machinery costing thousands of dollars to do it
properly. They must then be so manipulated that when
complete, you have a compound, each ounce of which is
exactly like every other ounce, and not a mixture one
p-irt of which would contain too much Ammonia and too
little Potash, while another part would be exactly the
opposite?and all of it contain plant food lacked up and
not available. *
Remember that the chemical analysis of a fertilizer is no
test of its crop growing qualities. The chemist can pul?
verize lumps and by the use of various means search out
the plant food ; your crop can't.
You can take an axe, break open the box and get the
corn ; your mule can't.
Don't risk a crop failure!

BOYS' CORN CONTEST.
Mr. O. B. Martin Tells All About tho
It is worth while to get a boy to
form a good purpose and work per?
sistently toward Its accomplishment.
If a number of boys can be induced
to strive for the same goal, with a
spirit of friendly rivalry which stlm
ulates observation, study, industry
and economy, then the good results
wtll be increased many fold.
Such Is the plan of the Boys' Clubs
In the farm demonstration work. In
order to get the best results it is not
only necessary to get the boys to
unite their efforts, but it is also es?
sential that other vital forces In the
county co-operate. One of the strong
features about the demonstration
work Is that it is co-operative. So
in the Boys' Department we fre?
quently find the county superintend?
ent of (education and teachers, the
demonstration agents, the business
men, the newspapers and the parents
giving aid and support.
Where this work is being intro?
duced in a county, the county super?
intendent of education and teachers
can reach the boys in all sections of
the county more quickly and more
effectively than any other agency.
The superintendent can explain the
plan to the teachers, and they can
explain It to the boys and secure the
names of all boys who will agree to
plant one acre of corn. It is best to
begin with corn. It Is a flne^subject
for study, and our people need to
raise more corn in order to be pros?
perous and Independent.
After thla is done a meeting of all
boys Interested should be held at the
court house for the purpose of or?
ganization and Instruction. Such
meeting should be held early in the
season so that every boy may have
time for proper preparation of soil
and selection of seed. For the first
year it has been found advantageous
to see that first class seed are fur?
nished to all of the boys alike. After
that each boy should select and
breed his own seed. Wherever a spe?
cial agent of the U. S. department of
agriculture is located in a county it
will be found that he will gladly
help in giving instructions and advice
in regard to the agricultural part of
ttoe work, either to the county club
or to local groups of boys whom he
may meet in his rounds over the
Prizes and Premiums.
If the merchants and ther public
spirited citizens have been visited
and the work explained to them be?
fore the general meeting of boys,
there will be a fine list of prizes to
announce. There have been many
commendable contributions to this
cause in various parts of the coun?
try during this year. It adds consid?
erable Interest to the work to offer
prizes like the following which have
been selected from different lists In
the South for this year: A trip to
Washington, $50 in gold, $10.00,
$5.00, a nice buggy, a first class bi?
cycle, a strong two-horse plow, a
double-barrel shotgun, at $5 hat, a
$15 suit of clothes, an up-to-date
corn planter, a ton of fertilizer, a
two-horse wagon," and other articles
of utility and value Some boards of
trade and chambers of comemrce
have made appropriations direct for
prizes and some have given fine rec?
ognition to the efforts of the Boys'
! Clubs by givn. them banquets and
j street car and automlble rides.
Circulars anil Bulletins.
Just as soon as the names of all of
the boys ar? assembled in the office
of the county superintendent of edu?
cation, duplicate lists should be sent
to Dr. S. A. Knapp, Washington, D.
O.i who has charge of the farmers'
co-operative demonstration work.
These boys will from time to time re?
ceive circulars of instruction and in?
formation in regard to preparation,
fertilization, cultivation, seed selec?
tion, etc. The circulars furnish ex?
cellent subject matter for discussion
j at a club meeting or for a lesson In
I school. They also lead to further
I study of afrmer's bulletins and books,
j A boy will profit from such lessons,
discussions and books because he is
; making practical application of the
' principles that are taught. He learns
because he needs it and not because
; It is scientific.
Hilles and Awards.
It Is not necessary to have many
rules. A few regulations, however,
are necessary in order to prevent
misunderstanding. It is well for the
boys to elect their own president,
vice president, secretary and treasur
or. Some clubs havie badges of mem?
bership in the shape of a button
with the name of the club, name of
I the county and stiite, and the year
printed or engraved upon It.
1. Boys Joining clubs and enter?
ing contests must be under eighteen
years of age.
2. No boy shall contest for a
prize unless bo becomes a member of
j a club.
3. Tho members of the clubs
; must agree to read the instructions
of the demonstration work.
4. Kach boy must plan his own
crop and do his own work.
5. Exhibits must be delivered to
tho county superintendent of educa
tion by October 16th.
6. The amount of the yield and
the method of measurement must be
certified by each boy and attested by
at least two disinterested witnesses,
who shall be satisfactory to the
7. In awarding prizes the follow?
ing basis shall be used:
(a) Greatest yield per acre. .30 per c.
(b) Best 10 ear exhibit.. 15 per c.
(c) Best written account show?
ing: history of crop and all ex?
pense.30 per c.
(d) Best showing of profit on in?
vestment.30 per c.
Experts from agricultural colleges
and departments of agriculture and
leading farmers should be Invited to
act as judges and also to give talks
on corn judging and seed selection.
In estimating profits uniform
prices should be used, for instance;
$5 per acre for rent. 10 cents per
hour for the work of each boy, and
5 cents per hour for each horse.
Fairs and Exhibits.
When there is a county fair the
boys' exhibit should be shown there.
If no fair should be held in a county,
the boys' exhibit should be collected
In the court houe or some other pub?
lic place easy of access.
A good exhibit of a Boyr Club
may lead to the establishment of a
county fair. Exhibits of local clubs
at school houses stimulate the work
and give fine opportunities for gen?
eral instruction. Although the clubs
may start with corn, the development
naturally leads to exhibits of other
farm and crops.
The object of the Boys' Demonstra?
tion work is the same as that among
men, namely, better methods of farm?
ing and greater yields. Many of the
boys in clubs who begin to study
agriculture In this way will continue
the study in the agricultural colleges,
others will continue such efforts on
their 'arms, and all of them will
make more useful and more efficient
citizens. Prom the pleasant and
profitable experience of owning and
managing their small plats they will
develop into independent, intelligent
farmers. The country needs such a
citizenship and such a life offers and
will offer great opportunities for
some years. The professions are
crowded and the wage-earner must
pay high prices for the necessities of
life. The wise and judicious producer
can enjoy health, wealth and con?
tentment. The question is how many
boys can be reached and influenced
thus to succeed.

I HOW TO CURE RHEUMATISM.
It Is an Internal Disease and Re?
quires an Internal Remedy.
The cause of Rheumatism and kin?
dred diseases is an excess of uric acid
in the blood. To cure this terrible dis?
ease this acid must be expelled and
the system ro regulated that no more
acid will be formed in excessive quan
j titles. Rheumatism is an internal
disease and requires an Internal rem?
edy. Rubbing with Oils and Lini?
ments will not cure, affords only tem?
porary relief at best, causes you to
I delay the proper treatment, and al- I
I lows the malady to get a firmer hold
on you. Liniments may ease the pain,
but they will no more cure Rheuma?
tism than paint will change the fibre
of rotten wood.
Science has at last discovered a
perfect and complete cure, which is
called "Rheumacide." Tested in hun?
dreds of cases, it has effected the
most marvelous cures; we believe it
will cure you. Rheumacide "gets at
:he joints from the inside." sweeps
the poisons out of the system, tones
up the stomach regulates the liver
and kidneys and makes you well all
over. Rheumacide "strikes the roots
of the disease and removes its cause."
