The Increase In cultivated land this country Is not keeping pace with the Increase In population. Unlet America wants to ini!ort foot stuff there is only one way to meet tl growing demand, and that U to it crease the crop irld. Tliat this not f eatable, but entirely nraeticabl k shown by the larger yield of the o! ountrics. by the general Increase ii the yield In recent jears and by tl. natural tendency of soil to grow nur fertile when properly treated. At one time It was generally believe hat the yield began to decline sm.m af hi nit- urcairing up o the virgin so. and continued to decline. The liari ment of Agriculture. how-r hi. roved that the lowest point in the d I.ne has already passes! and that the rarmer with his more careful farm in. methods has already brought on the in crease in productivity. So far the in crease is slight, not keeping pace with the Increase in imputation, tail tiu.rt. sufficient evidence to prove that th new larming certainly tends to fu tility. It is this point that the Conserva tion Congress is dwelling- upon, both as having a close relation to the l-t lermeni or farming conditions and tt farm prosperity.

Put the story has no foundation in fact, it belhir rnerelv the i.ro.lnrt ,f some fertile Imagination that could see In the gathering- of so many represen tatives of different copper Interests on- l the purose to merge their com panies into one Klgantlc concern, and to get arounel the anti-trust law the originator of the yarn made it an Hng- llsh bedding corporation. Just at this time-, when the depart ment of Justice Is about to apply the Sherman law to restraints of trade, and when big Imslness Interests are trying to adjust the lr affairs- so as not to con filet with that statute. It can be put down as certain that a copper com bination of the proportions repeated is not In contemplation. And It Is ab surd to think tliat the anti-trust law could bo evade-d by the subterfuge pro- posed, inamuch as the mines con- erne-el are In this 6euntry.

Z Transportation and Distribution Most Important 2 Problems Farmers Have to Contend With By Colonel JOHN JACOD ASTOR. Millionaire c HE farmer is often tho hard luck member of tlio communitjr. Ho raises his crops Itotween tho Scvlla of drought or too much rain, on ono band, and tho Charyb- dh of potato bugs, boll weevil and numerous other pests, on tho other. To learn that he receives only 4C per cent of tho valuo of his goods is surprising, but that is doubtless tho minimum. Tho two MOST IMPORTANT FACTORS of cost aro transporta tion and distribution.

Government aid in theso matters might provo a ROOMERANG that would do more harm than good. It would necessitate an increaso in tho ALREADY LARGE NUMRER of officeholders, with all tho UNDESIRABLE political accompaniments involved. Probably the government most EFFECTIVE AID would bo in building SMOOTH AND HARD ROADS on which tho farmer could movo large loads in wet weather when unablo to plow.
