(Prepared by the United State* Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
The existence of vast areas of so
called worn-out hill lands throughout
the United States may be attributed
chiefly to soil erosion, due to the
natural agencies of wind, frost and
rain. In most localities wind and
frost, owing to their comparatively
slow processes, play but a minor part
In the depletion of the soil nnd the ulti
mate destruction of good farm lands.
It Is the failure of the soil to absorb
the rain water which falls upon It that
presents by far the most serious us
pect of the problem. As nu Indication
of the dumage done by erosion, It Is
estimated that the Potomac river each
year carries olT in solution about 400
pounds of solid matter per acre of
land drained, containing plant food
sufficient to produce a crop. Unless
such loss be replaced, annually by
natural agencies or the application of
fertilizer, It is obvious that the land
soon will deteriorate greatly In pro
ductiveness and eventually be aban
doned. *
In addition to the loss through ero
sion of the soluble elements of the
solL, a noticeable impairment occurs
In the physical condition of the soil.
When the moving water washes the
soil particles from the surface of the
hillside and deposits them on the land
below, the heavier particles, or the
Bundy constituents of the soil, are de
posited first, nnd the finer, or clay,
parts last Since neither pure sand
nor pure clay possesses the produc
tive characteristics observed In a soil
composed of the proper Intermixture
of sand nnd clay particles, It Is appar
ent that the effect of this sorting pro
cess Is to diminish greatly the fertility
or productive power of the soil. Hence,
not only the eroded land suffers but
also the lnnd at a lower level upon
which the eroded material is deposited.
Forms of Erosion.
Erosion due to moving water occurs
In two forms—sheet washing nnd gul
lying. Small areas are practically
ruined by gullying, while sheet wash
ing diminishes the productive power
of large areas.
Gullying generally Js
dreaded of the two types on account
of Its more apparent destructive ef
fects. Where the ravages of erosion
unchecked, deep gullies In
the most
proceed unchecked, deep gullies In
variably develop In the field. Tin*'
appearance causes not only absolute
loss of land and inconvenience In cul
tivating, but a marked lowering In the
water table, with a possible accom
panying Inability of the soil to retain
the proper moisture content for the
production of crops and to withstand
periods of drought.
The injury due to sheet washing,
which occurs throughout the United
States, generally is underestimated
and Is regarded by many farmers as
of no particular consequence,
this type of erosion that slowly car
ries away the very fertility of the soil
without apprising the farmer—except
through slightly diminished crop yields
each year—that the application of |
remedial measures Is imperative In
It is
order to save his farm.
Methods of Preventing Erosion.
Erosion Is due chiefly to the free j
movement of water over the surface ;
of the land, which carries off particles |
of soil. If all rain water were ab
sorbed by the ground upon which it
falls, soil erosion would be reduced to
a minimum. It is obvious, therefore,
that in order to prevent or reduce
erosive action the soil must receive
treatment that is conducive to the ud
mission and the storage of large quan
tities of rain water; and methods must
be employed to reduce the velocity,
and thereby the transporting power,
of the run-off water.
Since the storage capacity of a soil
depends upon Its porosity, any treat
ment which results In an Increased
porosity of the soil will reduce erosion
usually la obtained directly by deep
plowing and by a thorough Incorpora
tion of organic matter in the soil.
Methods of subsurface drainage which
lower the ground water level improve
the porous structure of the soil and ln
: crease Its ability to absorb surface
1 »«ter.
This porous condition
The treatment of cover, such
as seeding land to pasture, growing
timber, and planting cover crops In the
winter, tends to check and diminish
erosion greatly. Other methods which
retard the flow of the water nnd con
duct the excessive run-off from the
field with a reduced amount of erosion,
are contour plowing, hillside ditching,
and terracing.
Deep Tillage.
By deep plowing the absorptive pow
er and reservoir capacity of a soli Is
Increased greatly. It is snid that ten
Inches of loose, plowed soil will ab
sorb two inches of rainfall. The in
corporation of organic matter or
humus In a soil adds materially to Its
moisture-holding capacity. This Is
best accomplished by plowing under
deeply, manure, stubble, stalks and
various cover crops. This organic
matter, In a decomposed state, Is
capable of absorbing considerable wa
ter and forms a richer and deeper top
Vegetation or cover crops will pro
tect the soil In four ways : (1) by
holding rain water on the surface for
a time, thus giving the soil a
better opportunity to absorb the wa
te** by keeping the soil open
through the growth of the roots, which
form passages for the water to reach
the subsoil; (3) by holding the soil
particles together through the binding
power of the roots ; and (4) by reducing
the movement of soil particles through
diminishing the velocity of surface wa
ter. Cover crops usually are grown
during the winter or when the land
itherwlse would be Idle. Vetch, clover,
eowpeas, oats, wheat and rye are com
monly used for cover crops.
Level Culture.
Contour plowing and the following
in general of practically level lines In
farm operations tend to check the sur
fuee flow down a slope and to retain
the water where It falls. In cultivat
ing crops, each row' Is banked up and
a shallow depression which holds the
surface water Is left between the rows.
Thus the nbsorptlon by the soil of this
Impounded water is facilitated and
the rapid run-off down the slope, with
its destructive eroding power, often Is
entirely eliminated In case of ordinary
ruins. Contouring contributes also In
a considerable degree to the conserva
tion of moisture on hill lands.
Often It seems Impossible to prevent
erosion on lands with excessive slopes.
| a state of barrenness,
that erosion Is least active in forested
! areas, because of the penetration and
i binding power of the roots and the ac
No attempt should be made to culti
vnte such areas, but they should be
seeded to pasture and usually retained
us such. In well-sodded pasture land
the soil Is not exposed directly to the
erosive action of the water, so that
erosion is much less destructive than
In cultivated fields.
In many sections of the country
tlmberland on excessively steep slopes
has been cleared for cultivation, and
In many Instances after clearing it was
found Impossible to control or check
the erosion. Such lands should he re

You Take No Chances
in Buying a Saxon
You may buy a Saxon believing it to be the
best car in its class and you will get what
you pay for.
You may look for longer service, better per
formance and lower up-keep bills from your
Saxon than from any other car of like price.
And you will not be disappointed.
If there was any doubt that Saxon cars are the
best in their respective divisions it has long
since disappeared.
And the proof of this you will find, a thousand
fold over, in the records of Saxon owners—
and in the opinion of motor-car buyers in
general. Saxon cars have definitely estab
lished their superiority in every phase of
motor car performance.
And just as surely and decisively as they have
proved themselves abler acting cars, have they
proved themselves cheaper cars to keep up.
To build cars of such quality and such value
clearly reflects the strength and soundness
and ability of the Saxon organization.
