Soil infection in Crop Rotation:
After procuring the best sort of seeds,
it is very essential that every effort
should be made to prevent) soil in
fection by t.he various disease produc
ing organisms which injure the roots
of our cropping plants as for exam
ple. flax wilt fungus, smut of corn, po
tjato scab, loose smut of wheat, root
rot or blisht of wheat, etc. To keep
tho soil free from such troubles it is
necessary to practice intelligent crop
rotation. Do not think of sowing
wheat after wheat or flax after flax
or oats after oats, in immediate fol
lowing years. Place some other sorts
of crops in between and a cultivated
grass crop whenever possible, includ
ing pasture. This proper crop rota
tion will give the diseases which at
tack wheat a chance to die out ot
the soil before a new wheat crop is
put on the land. This Is especially
necessary with reference to flax.

"I talked with several who were
trying to raise vegetables for the
northern markers, but it Is a very
uncertain business. Hay was selling
