Red Polls. .. i The Red Polls have a tradition*; Hi history that goes back 484; \ears before Christ. The “red muly bulls” that pulled the char iots of the ancient kings are the ancestors of our modern brecdof red poll cattle. And we now ful-; ly believe every word of this his-, tory, because we saw the herds □r red polls exhibited by w . b.. Turner, A. W. Halbert and Jno. M. White at the fair.

Fertilizing With the Plow. licuUural chemists have been compelled by inexorable facts developed by actual tests, to modify their previous opinions that soil fertility can only be maintained by replacing regular ly the plant t*v>d removed in all ••ale crops. A few, fortified by actual experience, have contend ed iliat practically all soils con tarn enough of the elements «»( plant growth to produce crops indefinitely, if it is made avail aide, and that cultural methods . «* t 11 % — i K property appueo n jood available, l b** Bureau of Soils of the Agricultural Pepart nu nt has just compkted an ex haustive investigation of the chemistry of soils as related to thcyieldsaf oops. The result indicate that practically all soi's have sufliccnt available com-, pounds for. normal crop yields, j and that this supply is constant ly maintained by meansof natural j agencies in the soil itself. Th< difference in yields being deoyn dent upon the condtinonand kin I 4il ►oil grains, and these condi lions arc dependent upon the character of the cultivation and the rotation of crop** n c s-ary to provide and maintain necessa ry physical conditions in the soil which enable the growing crops to uti izc the plant food present in the soil. It appears, from these investigations, that the nutritive elements contained in the soil moisture itself has been accurate ly determined and is found to be ample to sustain the theory thus developed. This confirms an o pinion well expressed by a pro gressive irrigation farmer from California who had a few days be fore purchased a farm near Carl bad, N. Mex. In driving over the country in company with this gcntlemau, the writer asked him, “Does not this soil seem rather poor to you? It looks so certain ly to one from the black lands ol Texas.” “That makes do differ ence,” said the Californian; “give ! me the water and I'll grow the! crops on any kind of soil that will j keep the plants in place.” This bulletin, now nearly n ady to send out, will prove one of the most im portan ever issued by the De partment. and everv progressive farmer will of course want one.
