It takes some fertilizer to produce

in lettfeg nature assist in this part
of the process He therefore plants
crops that themselves fertilize the
soil Ha plows deep and turns under
all of the green stuff that is on the
ground and that helps Velvet beans
cowpeas and Mexican clover are all
natural fertilizers and turned under
they refertilize the soil and keepit
continually rich and productive i

Yet just such land as Mr Danley

the farm oC G A Danley of Chiplhsy
is the proper place to go And I
might add that it is a good place to
go for a good many farmers who al
