SOME VERY VALUABLE HINTS
ABOUT CONSERVING THE
Save ttie moisture and increase

tie principles of soil moisture con
servation that each one can be in
possession of the secret. Then again
there is nothing difficult or myster
ious about it. II is common know
ledge that anything wet dries on being
exposed to th eair. The housewife
makes use of this principle in hang
ing out the clothes to dry. It is a
well known fact that oil moves up
through a wick, and that if the wick
is cut the oil cannot pass over
the gap. Water wil 1
Another reason for the deep plowing
is to furnish a large reservoir to take
up the rainfall readily. Shallow plow
ing can not take in rain as fast or as
much of it as deep plowing, so the re
sult is more run off.
How are these conditons to be met?
The deep plowing has been mention
ed. The proof of its value is brought
out by the fact that it produces larg
The soil mulch can be produced
by the common harrow. Crops can be
harrowed till five or six inches high,
and some are trying to harrow till it
heads out and with good results. The
harrowing of grain or corn should on
ly be done on bright, sunny days and
not before the BUB has been up three
or four hours. The plant when wet
and In the morning and on cloudy
days is- more crisp and breaks up
easier. The mulch should be made
as soon as the land is 'plowed. If it
is not, considerable evaporation will
take place at once. In plowing, do
not leave the field before harrowing
what was plowed that half day.
A plow attachment is now on the
market that loosens up the surface
at the same time the plowing is done
Another way is to hitch an extra horse
to a section of harrow when plowing
this does it all at one operation, too.
In the case of spring plowing it may
be necessary to pack it so as to get
the bottom of furrow slice compact.
The Campbell's subsurface packer is
good for this purpose, though going
over with the harrow two or three
times packs pretty good and is coming
more into favor.
Fall plowing should be harrowed
as soon as possible in the spring as
moisture will escape fast from the
surface that has been compacted
as the oil and it moves through the
soil in the same way that it does thru
Keep in mind that a wet soil ex
posed to the air will give up its mois

soil if the soil to compacted, which
condition compares to the lamp wick
that is cut and so the moisture can
not move thru it.
The plant needs the moisture in the
furrow slice as thiait is where it does

growing in the dead furrow. It (has
its roots in the subsoil. The moist

than In the surface soil yet the plant
does not do well, and due to the lack
of available (plant food. This means
that a deep furrow slice will offer
more feeding room for the roots than
a shallow one The furrow allce
should be packed firm against the bot

the moisture to pass from the subsoil
to tihe surface soil, as tne plant needs

the surface soil should be kept loose,

Humus adds greatly to moisture

would plow nicely at harvest, will fee

two and all due to the weeds. And
the weeds growing in the grain also
rob th#&rain of moisture and the re
sult is that much less grain. One
way is to disc as soon as the crop is
harvested. It is necessary to have
the land free from weeds and this
can be done if a crop of corn and a
crop of clover is grown every fonr
or five yeas. Manuring will also help
