t-??"1 rjijjg American farmers are be
ginning to think that they are
farming scientifically, but they
are far behind several of the old
countries mainly because they
take more from the soil than
they put back ; They are rob
bers of the soil. The population
of the United States has in
creased 21 per cent, in the last
ten years and the grain increase
of the nation has been only 17
per cent., hence the surplus of
the nation is growing less from
year to year, and this is true of
many of the other crops of the
nation. Countries whose soil
has been cultivated for a thous
and years produce larger and
better-crops than in the United
States because of their better
system of farming. More atten
tion mnst be paid to soil building
more people must sow grass and
rotate their crops.
More people '
must then turn their attention to'
cattle, truck and poultry raising.
Farms needjho be cleaned up and
put into a thriving and paying
condition. Farmers must wake
up and get books and papers
upon farming and learn to farm
profitably. Many oi our farm
ers have yet to learn that they
do not know how to farm, make
money and at the same time
build up their soil.
Porto Rico's New Wonder.
.From far away Porto Rico come re

cured me about live time of terrible
coughs and colds, also my brother of
a severe cold in his chest and more
than 20 others, who used it on my ad
vice. We hope this great medicine
will yet be sold in every drag store in
Porto Rico." For throat and lung
