Sufferings Of War.
President Taft’s appeal for
peace in Woman’s Home Journal:
“The evil of war, and what fol
lows in its train, I need not
dwell upon. In our civil war the
death roll in the Union army
alone reached the appalling ag
gregate of 359,000. But the
sufferings and the perils of the
men in the field, distressing as
they are to contemplate, are1
slight in comparison with thei
woes and anguish of the women i
who are left behind. The hope
that Husband, brother, father,
son, may be spared the tragic;
end which all soldiers risk, when!
they respond to their country’s;
calls, buoys them up in their \
privations and heartbreaking >
loneliness. But theirs is the1
deepest pain, for the most poig-j
nant suffering is mental rather!
than physical. No pension com-)
pensates for the loss of the bus- j
band, son or father. The glory J
of death in battle does not feedj
the mouths of orphaned chil-j
dren, nor does the pomp and cir- i
cumstance of war clothe them.
The voice of the women of i
America should speak for
peace.” -

The fertility of a soil is meas
ured toy the capacity of the soil
to produce crops, but the poten
tial fertility of a soil is based
upon and determined by the to
tal amount of plant food con
tained therein. As a result of
processes taking place in the
soil by the operation of natural
agencies, insoluble and unavail
able forms of plant foods may
gradually assume soluble and
available forms, and by the ap
plication of improved methods
of tillage, drainage, etc. not on
ly may a physical improvement
of the condition of the soil be
effected, but also the increased
porosity, permeability to air and
moisture, and generally improv
ed soil texture resulting from
these methods of soil treatment
/nay promote or hasten these
changes that are bringing about
the conversion of unavailable in
to available forms of plant food.
In this way, the potential fer
tility of the soil may, more or
less gradually, as conditions va
ry, become actual or productive
fertility, but even the most fer
tile soils, sooner or later show
evidences of exhaustion as a re
sult of the withdrawal year af
ter year, in the harvested crops,
of large supplies of the essential
elements of plant food. Scien
tific experimentation and study
have demonstrated that plants
take up from the soil at least
ten elements which are required
for their growth and develop
ment under normal conditions.
Most of our soils that have
been in cultivation are lacking in
a greater or less degree, in all
three of the fertilizing consti
tuents, nitrogen, phosphoric
acid and potash, and hence the
very general demand for com
plete fertilizers, supplying all
the above forms of plant food.
Experience has shown that it is
often very advantageous to ap
ply all three of the fertilizing in
gredients, even where analyses
of the soils show quite apprecia
ble proportions of these sub
stances to be present, since soil
analyses only show the total
amount of the several constitu
ents, and do not indicate what
proportion of these constituents
is available to the plant.
