WHY SOME TREES
DON'T GROW
BY J. r. Heltzel
If you do not have a sandy soil
but one that would classify as
medium good or one containing
some gumbo and hard pan you
need not be alarmed, but to keep
them growing as fast as the man
with the sandy soil will require
mure effort In general the sec
ret of success is an open secret.
Get out after each rain with your
disc or harrow and cultivate. If
you follow this rule consistently
your neighbor will soon be won
dering how you raise such trees
and why his don't grow. Neither
will you have to fear a dry year.

The selection of trees for
planting in this part of the I)a
kotas requires care. It is a
great surprise however, the great
variety which have proven ab
solutely hardy. Still there are
many varieties, especially trees
of dwarf habits that are known
to be hardy but as yet have nev
er been planted or tried out. A
few of the best vareties are the
ash, elm, poplar, willow, and b'-x
elder. There is also a big list of
ornamental trees and shrubbery
which should be planted gener
ally. Yet you scarcely ever find
a shrub around any of our homes.
Right her is a great chance for
the amateur. Where he may fail
to raise a tree, he undoubtedly
would succeed in raising shrub
bery or some of the dwarf or or
namental trees and his success
would go a long ways in break
ing the bleakness of our prairies.
That fine groves of trees can
be raised in the west part of
the Dakotas and particularly
right here at home has been
proven beyond doubt. I need on
ly to refer you to the Potter and
Bobb farms on the north and the
McGinty and Mitchell farms on
the south a^ well as many other
places. By all means let us plant
trees and then take care of them
and *e will be repaid many fold.

carry low ^rade t?rain to market when your
land will produce the best?" In many cases
the difference in grade is caused by the way the seed
it planted.
Experts say, and many farmers know, that the quality of the
grain at harvest, other things being equal, is determined by the
method used in planting.
The best planted grain finishes the best. The better the
planting, the butter the start, the heavier the grain, the more
uniform^the grade.
Of all planting methods the drill method is best. The grain
is planted evenly and without waste It is all planted at the
correct depth. It is covered uniformly.
When a drill is used'the best possible start is insured. That
means less harm from either extremely wet or dry seasons, the
htads filled out solidly with plump kernels, the grain all ripen
ing at the same time. That, in turn, means money saved at
harvest, in threshing, and top prices for the grain you sell.
No matter what grain crop you plant this'year, the Kentucky
drill will give you a better chance to make a profit this fall.
From our extensive line you can easily choose just the type of
drill you need. A word from you and all our facilities are at
vour service
