ine ume of year for the annual clean up Is here and we see a few are getting busy. The old grass, limbs and trash that accumulated during the long cold weather can now be picked and raked up and the lawns put good shape. Then of course there are a lot of trees and shrubs to plant, How Is a good time for that. Spring weather is starting In late and will, doubtless come with a rush now The early planted tree or shrub the one that makes the best growth Bet nut now the spring rains will 6ett!e the dirt about the roots and cannot help growing. The ground too wet yet to plow or spade so the gardeners will have to wait a few days. The time to plant potatoes just as soon as they can begot Into the ground. They will necessarily be later than usual this spring. Don be afraid now of getting them in too soon.

Help correct the impression that goes with the report that Kansas can raise only 134 bu. of wheat to the acre while Ne braska is averaging 18. How this may be done is described in detail in a new bulletin just issued by the Santa Fe, entitled Better Crops in Kansas and How, to Grow Them This bulletin is made up of a series of articles by such au thorities as Prof. W. M. Jar dine, Prof. L. E. Call, Prof. E. G. Shafer, Prof. A. H. Leidigh andJProf. T. J. Headlee of the Agricultural College at Man hattan, and Mr. C. O.Townsend of the U. "S. Land and Sugar Company, Garden City. Every farmer in Kansas should have a copy on his li brary table; he should read it and follow the farm practice described. If this could be done the yield of Kansas farms would be doubled in a season and the cost of production would be lessened, for Kansas soil can't be beat. That means profit to you It costs nothing to get a copy except the one cent to send a postal card. I want you to send that pos tal today. I will see that you get the bulletin by return mail C. L.
