He did much in this way to correct a sentiment from which all railway property has suffered in recent year*?a sentiment which has found lit expression in sn rrroneous belief that a rail? way takes from the public more than it give-t. and Ills effort In word and der.l wail to restore a just balance of understanding of the economic necessity, to-every cillren In his dally life, of a well maintained, honestly administered and prosperous Irantpoitation system.

Fertilizers Our mercantile friends are beginning to buy fertilizers to supply our farmers for the com in gseoson und we might begin to think whnt kind of|fortilizei*B we most need. This is determined by the kind of soil we have, the crop we ore going to plant or have planted. We buy fertilizers for three plant foods generally ? mtrogt n. phosphoric acid ami potath. The name of the fertilzer does not always mean very much so we thou Id be guided by the figures an the sack. A gooii corn fertilizer should sonthiri from '_' to :i per cent of nitrogen, 7 to S per cent of phosphoric acid and 2 to :i per! Berti of potash. We should put >n 300 to 600 pounds to one acre troudcasl and harrowed in beforeI planting. We should not put | fertilizers tu the rows Or in I ?onlaei with the seed as the feed are apt to bo injured liy the fertilizer and the rootsj ivill make little growth, so that t drouth will injure the crop ind the yield shortened. Fertilizers should bo broad ?ast for small grain, corn and grits* as I be roots will then iiinke tin even growth and the! SrOp will not be injured by n| In.nib. A mixture of 200 pounds of bone meal. 2001 pounds of acid phosphate until 50 pounds of mil rillte of potash, making a total of 160 pounds to one acre, make an excellent coro fertilizer. Anyone can mix these by pouring tog- ther| on l be Hour or dry ground and | mixing with shovel, Itouej meal is a good fertilizer at the' ran- of ?Joo to 500 pounds in one acre for corn, small grain or lmmss hut is slow, more effeol can generally be seen the 2nd year than the lirst year. Kor potatoes we should have a fertilizer with more potash. 2 to i per cent of nitrogen1, ? to S per cent of phosphoric acid, I to 8 per cent of potash. This should be put on ill the rate of 400 to soo pounds to one acre. It may I?1 applied broad cast or scattered over a row about I* to ?_' feet wide ami mixed with lie' soil before laying oll tlie row The fertilizer should not be put in the rrtw in contact with the potatoes. For wheat and oats we ought to sow about 200 pounds to the acre of acid phosphate when we sow the grain und in the spring when the leaves ate d or I inches long sow about im i oi- 200 pounds of nitrate of soil ( to 1 I acre. For grass about inn to 200 pounds of nitrate of soda per acre sown in the spring just Iii-tote of after a rain giveH ex? cellent results. For vegetables we want a high grade, stung fertilizer ami we apply it freely as we wan' our vegetables to grow fast, and be tender A fertilizer contain? ing 'J to -I per cent of nitrogen and s I" per cent of phos? phoric acid and II to ft per cent of pottlsh is a good vegetable fertilizer. We can put on ,'.",i to lOOO pounds tootle acre, the truck farmer.- around Norfolk I use several Ions to one acre. Unless a soil has a fair amount of vegetable matter in it, it is useless to apply more (ban about 300 pouns of fertilizer for any crop. That is if the. soil is very poor indeed, don't use much fertilizer, not more than about B00 pounds to one acre, until the laud is improved by manure or cover crops. We cannot improve or main, tain soil fertility by the use of fertilizers, we sow crops and turn them tinder: This is (he billy way to improve laud un? less we have manure or some Other vegetable matter lo add direct to the soil. Fertilizers are used to help out and to help get 'i Mtand of Homo cover crop as grass, clover, peas, etc. For Positions Recently Filled. Mr. .lohn Howard. I'ledmnnt Pre- f pared. $"<a stotio.
