Cholera and swine plague have been scattered far and wide by burying dead hogs or other animals. It is not difficult to burn a hog. Build a good-sized pile of wood that will make a hot fire and after It Is well started place the body of the hog on top. The fat in the body will add to the flames and In a short time It will all be consumed. The Important thing Is to notify the ; state veterinary at the agricultural ; college station at once, then follow lm pllcltely the Instructions received. He ; will probably tell you to disinfect the hog houses and the yards and fences| and the grounds around them and to keep on doing so for several months. It Is not safe to discontinue the dis infectants as soon as the deaths In the herd cease because the germB ol cholera particularly often exist for several months, and unless they are entirely destroyed the trouble will cer tainly return. CROPS NOT MADE OF HUMUS Dr. Hopkins of Illinois Station Dis pels Common Delusion—Nitrogen Is the Key. Dr. Hopkins of tho Illinois station explains the peculiar work of humus ln the soil, dispelling a conimou de lusion, as follows: "Many people have a notion that | humus Is the great factor in production, and that It a farmer has good humus he could grow a good crop. This Is one of the greatest mis takes ln agriculture. crop made of humus. sake, furnishes nothing to feed plants, It is merely a tool to help make plant food available, to help hold moisture and liberate plant food. It has no part ln feeding plants so long as It remains humus. "Decaying organic matter Is fused with humus, includes the vegetable and animal matter that accumulates in the soil. Humus Is the part of organic matter that Is resistant to decay, the part that remains of organic matter after It baa lost its form.

''On a diet of buttermilk and clabber this remarkable man, over 80 years old and practicing ln a climate not conductive to physical or mental activity, Is doing a practice that would be burdensome to a man in his prime ln Minnesota. A dally walk of twen ty-five miles is usual to Dr. Gray, and he travels many more miles over the Mexican excuses for roads on mule back. "The secret lies ln the fact that Dr. Gray has always craved these foods. This craving Is not a matter of appe tite, but Its roots go deeper. Into the physiologic needs of the body.
