THE RANCH AND ITS PRODUCTS

EDITED BY S. M. WOODSRIDGE, PH. t>.
In procuring fertilizers the consumer
must consider them in a dual light.
First, their commercial value, and
second, their agricultural value.
The commercial or market value of a
fertilizer depends upon the amount of
plant food it contains, i. c.. the per cent
of nitrogen, phosporic acid and potash.
'The prices of these elements depend upon
the laws of supply and demand, as do
the prices of other staples, all of which
vary from time to time.
The agricultural value of a fertilizer de
pends upon the benefit derived from its
use—its crop-producing power. Some
times the highest priced fertilizers are of
little or no value to particular crops and
lands. Nitrogen, the most expensive ele
ment, considered from a commercial
standpoint, has been used at a positive
loss, while potash, the cheapest element,
has often been found to be ol the greatest
agricultural value. From the commercial
value of a fertilizer, therefore no illation
as to its agricultural value can be made.
Professor Cook said as far back as 1884,
"Reliable information concerning agri
cultural values must be sought upon the
farm—not from the guesses of the farmers
only, but from the actual weights of
crops, grown under known conditions
upon accurately measured areas.
"When it was definitely settled tnat
plants invariably removed certain ele
ments from tbe soil and certain other
elements from the air; further, these
Work of the Army Worm on Orange and Lemon Trees; also on the Fruit
fair" elements were always present and
available, tbe conclusion was hastily
reached that a chemist, by analysis alone,
could, without seeing or knowing any
thing about a field, state positively which
crop would flourish upon it or what ele
ment must be added to make it fertile.
"Experience has shown tbe fallacy of
this reasoning, nnd today no agricultural
chemist would guarantee an average crop,
even if his own analysis of an absolutely
fair sample of the soil made him positive
that the field contained twenty times
more plant food than any harvest could
possibly remove."
Another authority wrote in 1886: "The
old idea ot the practicability of analyzing
the soil to determine what plant food is
necessary to apply is exploded."
Consider the matter. Tho average
weight of a cubic foot of earth is about
000 pounds. An ucre of ground contains
43.560 square foot. If, therefore, wo take
the weight of an acre of ground one foot
deer, wo would have pounds, or
2,178 tens. Suppose wo should add to this
Jive toi-.s of fertilizer. This amount would
only b': equivalent to 2:1-100 of 1 por cent
of the whole weight of the soil under <o:i
--siderat-ion. it must be remembered, too.
that as a rule the smaller portion of most
fertilizers are plant foods, therefore the
amount! which a chemist would have to
find be still less than thai shown
■in the above calculation, rjuppose the
fertilizer applied was ground bone,assum
ing it contained 24 percent of phosphoric
acid, this would show an increase over
the soil analysis of 56-1000 of 1 per cent of
phosphoric acid in tbe analysis, ami no
chemist but the merest tyro would at
tempt to guarantee any such infiniteel
nially small amounts. Thus the whole
matter of making up v fertilizer tj suit a
soil fioni an analysis of it is reduced to
an nbssnrdity.
The only practical way of ascertaining
the agricultural value of a fertilizer is by
actual field trials, lor tbe roots of plants
can detect and gather definite elements in
a soil that the most sikllful chemist
would be obliged to report as traces.

Trials like the one above indicated may
be made on a tenth part of an acre, ft
would therefore take one and one tenth
acres So make a complete set of trials.
The plot of ground so used should be
staked off and numbered and the same
fertilizers put upon the same plots every
year.
l'rof. W. O. Atwater was the lirst to in
. traduce this system of field trials some
sixteen years ago, anil the system has
since come into very general use.
Prof. Cook of the New Jersey agricul
tural experiment station said that the
■ystem hud been employed in that station
J 'With tha following ends in view:
"First—To awaken among farmers v
edesire for accurate information.
".Second—To familiarize farmers with
1 the general appearance of materials which
furnish nitrogen, phosphoric acid and
i potash.
"Third—To show the effects of these
elements when used either alone or in
combination upon different crops grown
on widely different soils.
r'ouriu —To train » body of men for
studying the complicated uuestions in
volved in tho rational and profitable use
of fertilizers."
1 was criticised very severely by the
director of our agricultural experiment
station some three months ago for advo
cating the method above set forth. Nev
ertheless ho put out or caused to be put
out a number of test plots.
The director has until very recently main
tained that tho needs of any crops could
be ascertained by an analysis of tbe soil,
especially on our so-called virgin soils.
The writer has maintained that the only
way to lind out the needs of any crop
was to "put tlie question to the soil and
get the answer in the cop."
Next Sunday 1 will give a comparative
result of the two theories, facts and con
clusions being drawn from actual field
work.
The Army Worm
There has been no moie exciting con
test since Dr. Tanner attempted to starve
himself than the watching of the pro
gress of the army worm upon the citrus
trees that were in.mured with a mixture
of tar and glycerine. Indeed, excitement
would run to high fever when one would
watch them pass by the poisoned bait at
the base of a tree, crawl slowly up, per
haps three teet of tne trunk, only to have
to recede because of the barrier of every
day coal oil tar softened with a little
sweet glycerine, it was astonishing how
after their trip up and down the trunk,
they would attack the bait which tbey
had disdainfully passed by on their up
ward journey, nnd then " keel ever aud
give up tlie ghost. This preventive of
this pe?t has been successful in the high
est degree.
Bee Culture and Orange Growing
VV. S. Hart, who is admitted to be one
of tbe most prosperous and enterprising
orange growers in the state, and who is
well known to nearly all of our orange
growers through his connection with the
Florida State Horticultural society, of
which he was recently secretary, tells the
readers of the Chicago Farm, Field and
Fireside of his early trials and ultimate
success in Florida. Instead of devoting
his entire time to the orange business.
Mr. Hurt wisely diversified his labors and
secured money from the sale of honey to
carry on his orango business. In hislet
ter he says: "I came to this state nine
teen years ago a poor boy. During the
first three years misfortunes crowded fast
upon lue. At the end of that time I was
$24r> in debt and in possession of two
swarms of bees.
"By hard work, hard study and the
hotp of my bees, I paid the last dollar 1
owed.and then for the first time set out a
few orange trees on my own land. Since
then I have prospered* beyond my most
sanguine expectations. I have at the
present time 116 colonies of bees, and my
honey crop to date for the present year is
sixteen and one-half tons, and will*bo in
creased by some tons more before the
present flow ceases. Have also taken
about 800 pounds of wax. I expaet to
show a remarkable record by August 10th,
when the present flow of honey will have
ceased.
"A colony kept on scales and weighed
each day has already given 510 pounds
without any special care or nursing what
ever. 1 think the aggregate honey crop
in this immediate neighborhood tnis
season will go over PVO tons.
"This is the best season we have known
here, yet I have before made an average
of 235 pounds per colony, and for several
veara in succession did not go below 185
pounds average weight through the
apiary for a single season.
' 'In my seventeen years of beekeoping
in this state I have never failed to make
it pay except during two seasons, and
even then expenses were nearly met.
"As stated before, I have prospered,
and now, besides having probably tbe
best beekeeping outfit in the state, I have
several as line orange groves as can be
found, ami considerable lirst-elass real es
tate besides. 1 give these facts merely to
show what can be done by strict atten
tion to business.
"In good locations the average natural
increase is from one to three, if one
story eight-framed hives are used, and
35u pounds of honey. They often do much
better than this. I have known one colony
to increase naturally to nine strong ones
in one seaaon, and give considerable sur
plus honey besides. I use the ten-framed
l.ungstrot'h hive, keeping the second
story on the year round, and am sel
dom bothered by swarming.—Florida

BLAZING SUN AND THIRST
A Vivid Description of the Great Salt
Valley Five Hundred Feet Below
the Level of tbe Sea and
Deadly Hot
Many volumes liavo been written on
that ptc-uilat piece of earth, Death valley,
where so many fellow travelers went to
never return, leaving their bleaching
bones to mark the spot where they suc
cumbed to the oporcssive heat, poisonous
water and other elements destructive to
life, and yet in reality little is known of
tbe queer place. Colonel X. W. Brooks of
Pomona and Mr. 13. M. Johnson of New
York have just returned from this awful
valley, which is the lowest spot of earth
on the American continent, whore they
went on a mining expedition, traveling
tlie entire length of the valley, nnd
through parts of N'yo ami Lincoln coun
ties. Nevada. The colonel is n'great trav
eler and old-time mining man, and has
mudc many such trips, put to Mr. John
son it was a new feature of life, and one
of hazard and torture,traversing the dead
man's trail, crossing the expansive sand
deserts, crystallized salt beds. 500 feet be
low the ocean, and often without water.
As Colonel Brooks remarks, it la truly
regretful that this phenomenal country
cannot be seen by Ihe thousands of peo
ple who read of its indescribable wonders,
lie says that when the aescriptive pow
ers of our most able writers have been
exhausted in an effort to convey to the
public a correct impression of the prcip
itous depths, grandeur of its confines,
combinations of all known minerals, and
adding to this the solemnity of awe, of
torture, of death to the many travelers,
tbe reader's most grasping imagination is
still vague ami as fur shoit of tbo reality
as is the possibility of an ox drinking
the waters of the San Francisco bay.
An indefinite idea of the exceeding
Jiandeur of the salt precipice, miles in
engtb, that is situated at the head of
Death valley, as the sun shines upon it
each day of tbe 806 oi tho year, may be
obtained by directing one's thoughts or
imagination to the sublimity of Niagara
falls, when its dimensions have beep mul
tiplied by one hundred, and the water is
converted into transparent icicles with
the reflecting brilliancy of ten- thousand
chandeliers, ami thus by some unnatural
expanse of tue imagination an appre
ciative sense of the stubborn facts is
had; of the deep brown or oxide of iron
color, the crstallizing salt extending over
lifty miles in the lowest depth of Deulh
valley.
There is nothing, not, anything, that
has a name or a shape, more abrupt,
uneven, or topsy-turvey, than is this
mass of salt as spewed from the unknown
depths of tho earth. The projecting
points, one above another, are generally
oblong, and of all dimensions from one
inch to five feet,"and ns the inner press
ure of the unknown forces have thrust
and crowded the millions of varied forms
and sizes of fragments promiscuously to
the surface, it presents a distressing con
fusion. The salt is of tho ordinary hard
ness of a stone. It is here that a wagon
road is built without the use of a plow,
pick, shovel or ax, but at great expense
the high parts are hammered down, and
make it possible for the tiavcler to pass.
Messrs. Brooks aud Johnson credit
themselves with being the most unfortu
nate party that ever visited Death Valley,
excepting.the many who perished in this
forbidden srot. Their trip, as Colonel
Brooks expresses it, was one of hellish
disappointments, hazard of life, hard
ships, and once a narrow escape from
drowning in the Big Tejunga. The wind
blew longer and hauler than he ever knew
it before, at times maging it necessary to
cable the wagons and ballast the blankets
to prevent being blown out of existence.
The toughest part of their journey was
the long drives of fifty to sixty miles be
tween water stations, over tha terrific sand
beds, mountains and unbroken roadways.
At times their wuter supply was com
pletely exhausted, mules given out, and
they compelled on one occasion to aban
don the wagon and lead the mules a dis
tance of twelve miles to water.
Colonel Brooks says of nis Inexper
ienced New York companion, as a desert
traveler, that he is a compooition of the
best material the blazing sun of the des
ert ever shown upon, walking twenty
miles a day through tho intliese beat, ris
ing at 1 in tlie morning and traveling till
12 the following night.
The two gentlemen went to Death val
ley expressly to secure a most volauble
quartz mine", said to have a value of $4uuo
I er ton, and on arriving upon tlie ground
at the extreme head of Death valley
found, to' use Colonel Brooks' language,
that it ivas not wo.th a 2-cent postage
stamp.

FASHIONS
FOR MEN
What They Should Wear
to Be Stylishly
Dressed
SHIRTS, COLLARS AND HATS
Don't Forget Your Ducks If You Would
Be in Style When You Are
Yachting or Boating
Tbo slimmer man of 1895 will be a very
sensible looking person if ho conforms
s:rictly with tho rulings of fashion. It
may seem a littlo bit early to talk of what
a young man should wear in the heated
term, whether bo be in the city or off en
joying the delights of a summer time va
cation, but when it i., remembered that
the men who actually make the fashions
decided last winter what the proper sum-
Three Bits of Qood Form
mer caper would be, and tlie great facto
ries for months havo been turning out
tbe necessary material for those fashions,
it is certainly time that the public should
know what it is going to wear.
There is a happy delusion widely prev
alent that the Prince of Wales. K. Berry
Wall or somo other person creates the
fashions, and apropos of this, the origin
of the colored shirt is attributed to the
prince in the following way: He was
out hunting and, being caught in a ter
rific rainstorm, sought the shelter of a
poor farmer's house. The prince was
soaked to the skin, and it was quite nec
essary thiit he should havo a change of
clothing. The fanner fitted him out as
well as bo oould, and in the way of a
shirt could only offer him what is com
monly called a blue and white jumper.
This the prince donned, and a few min
utes later a number of bis attendant no
blemen rushed into tbe place in anxious
search for his loyal highness. They all
noticea the blue and white shirr, and
tbe next day each and every one of them
ordered several dozen colored shirts of
their respective haberdashers. This is
the way tbo fable ran. and whether it
contained any truth can only bo sur
mised.
While tho English people wear what the
prince wears, and tiio America peoplo ape
tbe English styles to a certain degree
tbe prince is largely governed by what
his haberdashers and tailors say. They
tell him what tbo proper thing will be,
and he may slighty modify it in his or
ders, but in the main he wears what the
tailor, hatter and other shophu-.en decide
what he should wear many months bo
fore.
Beginning at the top, the right kind of
a summer man will wear a straw hat with
a brim tiiree inches wide and a crown
three inches high. Fancifully colored
ribbons which bind it if tlie wearer is nt
all gay in his attire, and if he wishes t <
bo particularly proper he will have six or
eight of these ribbons, all different in eel-
Will Be a Popular Style
or, and which will be worn on different
days. The Hamburir or Alp.ne hat in
pearl color will again be worn, trimmed
as before, ribbons of tbe same color or
of black. The summer derby will be a
slight exaggeration of tbe spring affair,
with the brim a trifle Hatter and wider,
and tbe crown fuller.
Next on the list is a collar, which is al
ways a inuttei of acute interest to the am
bitious man of fashion. The turndown
collar will be quite an exaggerated affair,
and will be as high in lront as tbe stand
ing collar. The overlaps in front will
measure four and three-quarter inches,
while tho average high collar is only two
and one-half inches high. As shown by
the illustration, the low collar will bo
quite an imposing affair. There is but
ono little change in the proper standing
collar, as shown in the design.
Ties will be fuirly quiet. Hlack and
white checks in silk tied in a loose knot
will be worn to some extent, but the most
popular ones will be of cotton, which this
year are made better than ever, having
silk Jaoquarded relief effects, and which
can be worn in ties, knots or four-in
hand. Fashion says tie your own scarf,
but the made-up affairs are so adroitly
put together that no dii'fernce is discern
ible
In tbe matter of shirts there is little
change from last year. The negligeo
affairs will form an important part of
the'sumnier man's outfit, and they will
be in all Kinds of colors and materials.
A very pale blue will bo tho fashionable
color and all tho shirts should be fitted
with the high turn down collar with tbe
deep points and link cuffs attached.
One of the most important features
of the summer man's wardrobe should
be at least a halt dozen pairs of whito
duck trousers. They should be mado very
long, to allow for a" deep turn-up at the
bottom. In lit they should be much
looser than the trousers ot other material,
and it is absolutely necessary that they
are heavily creased down the leg.
Double-breasted coats of rough serge
should bo worn with the white duck pants,
and a negligee shirt of pale blue. With
low tan shoes and light blue socks of silk
or merino and a while straw lint, gar
nished with a blue and white ribbon, tho
young man who wears this outfit can
count upon being strictly in form.
With informal dress of this kind gold
jewelry should be avoided. Oliver shirt
studs and silver link cuff buttons are the
proper thing. This should be welcome
news to most people, ns ornamentation
in silver costs but little, whereas the
gold is as dear as ever. Thero is no de
cided change in the matter of clothing.
Trousers arc not quite as wide as last
year, having now reached a sensible
medium. They should be mado twenty
or nineteen and a half inches ut the
knee, ana an inch narrower at tho bot
tom.
For formal afternoon wear the very
proper young man will havo a frock suit,
or a number of them, in different shades
< f gray, tbe skirts of the coat reaching a
trille 'below the knees. Fancifully col
ored vests should be carefully avoided.
They are out of date and bespeak for the
wearer a lack of knowledge of what is
right. The cutaway coat will be as long
as in the winter, the skirts reaching to
the bend of tho knee. Of course tho great
The Double-breasted Suit
coat for summer wear will, as usual, bo
the light sack, mado long and curving in
at the waist and litting tightly over tbe
bins.
Kor tho athletically inclined man there
are numberless styles in yachting, ten'
nis, riding, golfing and bicycling suits,
but the fashions in those change compar
atively little. '1 he owners of tennis flan
nel suits will be frowned upon this sum
mer if they attempt to force upon the
public their flannel trousers for ovcryday
wear, as tho duck affairs have supplanted
them.
Also the man who insists upon wear
ing a yachting cap upon all occasions will
be looked down upon by those "in the
know." If he must have a soft hat let
him wear an Alpine, or, if ho wishes to
attract attention by His headgear, let him
wear a Tain O'Shanter, which is growing
in popularity. It is fair to presumo that
a large number of benighted beings will
adopt the long-peaked bicycle cap, to
show that they are followers of tho wheel,
and they are warned in good time not to
do it. The cans arc not pretty, and be
sides make the average man look like a
tough.
Another word of warning. In evening
weal don't have any embroidery on youl
shirt front. Use tho finest kind of plain
linen that your pocket can afford, and
for studs use only plain poarl buttons.
