An examination of the list will show that Assessor Ron now has ex fNined great, care In an effort to make a fair and equitable assessment of property in the tounty and he cemlnly deserves the hearty com mendation of the taxpayers of the . - county for the good and effective wcrk that has been accomplished.

It ! risky to plant on ground in a dry year with a dried out Bubaoil. but with a good spring and a hubscil in good condition, wide spacing makes potatoes fairly sure where leaf roll has not appeared. There are many excellent dry land regions for potato growing In the wcRtprn half of Colorado, and the ta ble lands oX the northtaat have pro duced gcod crops. New Bt-ttlers la the plains iu the southern part of the states should be cautious, as potatoes have been a complete failure In most places in that region. Dry land3, notably the Arkansas dl ' vide, hve suffered severely from po tato leaf roll, and uew settlers should I make careful inquiry regarding their! neighbor?' experience iu 1911 an 1912 before giving much land or work to potatoes. Nearly every new comer seems to have to learn for himself that we have conditions and localities where it is cheaper to purchase potatoes at the store than to try to raise them.

The work of tillase or cultivation as it is moat commonly called Is one of the most Important operations on the farm as piactically all crops are dependent upon it. To obtain the best results the subject of tillage should be clearly and thoroughly un derstood as well as the best methoda of attaining them. Good tillage ta3 two important functions. -The first is to bring the soil into a suitable condition so as to obtain a deep, friable and compact seed-bed, one capable of absorbing and retaining large amounts of water and also to make plant food more available. The secend function is to establish a mulch which will decrease to a minimum the loss of water by evaporation.
