1ft i7 Pi ? V K? BE I URGES SMALL FARMS AS NEEDJFJOUNTRY Jas. J. Hill Says Methods Must Be Changed io Fcecl ftiture Population. land Mutt be Better Cultivated or Nation Will Suffer Shortage. "Smaller farms" must -bo tlio motiiiB through which the United States will feed a population of i00.000,000 in 1950. This is the fuudamontul prop osition which Jrfmos J. Hill ad vancos in tlio first of a series of nrticlea in tho World's Work. Ho flrst excludes tlio possibility ol'Jour producing enough wheat under presont mothods andN pro diets $1.60 as tho prico of that stuplo in tho near future He also concludes that it will bo im possible for us to purchaso abroad onobgh grain to covor an annual deficiency which ho places at 36,000,000 bushels. Tho remedy as Mr. Hill boos it is this: 1. Tho farmer must cnltivato no raoro land than he can till thoroughly. With less labor ho will got moro results. Official statistics show that the not profit from ono crop ot 20 bushels of whoat to the acre is as great as that from 2 to 10, after original cost of production has boon paid. 2. There must bo rotation of crops. Ton years of single crop ping will pretty nearly wear out any but tho richest soil. A proper throe or four year rota, tion bf crops actually onriches tho land. 3. There must be soil renova tion by fertilizing; and tho beBt fertilizer is that provided by naturo herself barnyard ma uurc. That tho United States must move quickly in this matter Mr. Hill firmly boliovos. 'Tho startling aspect ot this changed condition of supply and demand," ho says, "is that it is immediate. Wo' have to pro vide for a contingency not dis r'aut from us by noarly a sencru tiou, but already presont. Tho food coudition presses upon us ifow. Tho shortage has begun. Witness tho groat fall in wheat fxports and the rise of prices. "For tho first nino months of tho fiscal year, oudiug June 30, 1809, our export of wheat and Jour combined was but 100,251, 200 bushels. Such is tho aizo of tho national surplus in a fair crop year. It must shrink moro tlian 100,000,000 bushels for each three years horoaftor. Obviously it is time to quit speculating about what migbc occur oven twenty or thirty years hence, and begiu to take thought for the morrow. As far as our food supply is con corned, right now tho lean years havo begun. "1 havo stated the. national problem in tctrns of wheat for the sake of clearness; its solu tion admits of similar statement. Tho averago wheat yield per acre in the Unitod Statoa in 1907 was Id bushels, Tho aver ago for tho last ton years is 13 88. That is, in 1907 it required 45, 211,000 acres to produce tho 081,087,000 bushels that wo raised. It is a disgracofnl record. "About a coutury ago this was tho averago production por ucro of Great Britain. Aftor tho ap pointment of a royal commission aud a campaign for 'tho hotter mothods of cultivation begun ovor a hundred years ago, tho fields of fho Uuited Kingdom to day, tilled for n thousand years, in a climate where oxcosaivo moisture is unfavorable to wheat growers, yield ovor 32 bushels of wheat per acre, Gorrnauy, an agricultural country almost from tho time of Tacitus, produces 27.6'buahels poraoro! ' Suppose tho .United States p'roltfiR3d28 bushels, or double its present showiiaj?. That would-be' noth. ing extraordinary in viow of what European ccuutnoH have done with inferior soils and loss favorable climates. "Thoro is scarcely a limit, at least none has vot be n readied I by (ho most inteusivo cultiva tion, to tho value which an ncro may be made to produce. Right mi'thodSx of farming, without which no ngncultural country puch ns this can hope to remain prosperous, or oven to escape eventual poverty, are not com plicated and arc within the reach of the most modest meanp. "They include a rtudy of soils aud seeds, so as to adapt the one to tho other; a diversification of industry, including tho cultiva tion of different crops and tho raising of hvo Btook; a careful rotation of crops, so that tho laud will not bo worn out by successive yoars of single crop ping; intelligent fertilizing, by tho system of rotation, by culti vating leguminous plants and, abovo allj by the economy and use of ovory particlo of fertiliz ing matorial from Btock barns and yards ; a careful selection of grain used for seod ; and, first of all porhaps in importance, tho substitution of the smull farm, thoroughly tilled, for tho largo farm, with ita woedSjps'neglect ed corners, its abusod soil and its tbin products. "This mako room for tho new population whose added product will holp restoro our placo as an oxportor of food stuffs. The fruit farmer, tho truck farmer, every cultivator of the soil who has specialized his work, has loarnod tho valuo of theso simple principles. ' The problem is how to impress it upon tho 30,000,000 or moro such persons who live on tho land and till jt. "Tho modern agricultural method is both a money-maker and a labor saver. The cost of rent and production for contin uous wheat cropping averages $7.50 per acre. When, there fore, tho farmer obtains, as so many in the Northwest do, a yield of eight of ton bushols per acre, it justTaboufc moots, at av erago farm prices, tho cost of production; leaving him oithor nothing at all for his yoar'e toil, or olso a margin of dobt.
