More New Things E. J. McKnight has repainted bis happy home. Remember, when we speak of granitoid side walks in feet, we mean running, not square feet. Tbe walks vary in width in differents parts of tbe city, be ing from 4 to 8 feet wide and with us life is too short to compute the number of dozen eggs in a carload, when number ot cases are known to be 400 and 30 dozen to the case and il is tbe same way with square feet in a side walk. James Redd Is putting in 50 feet of granitoid side walk in front ot his pretty home. George Green has put in 62 feet of granitoid walk in front of bis home on Davis Street. Tbe L. M. Redman handsome residence at the corner of Davis and Second Streets has been repainted. Tae pretty home of B. O. Wood at the corner of N. Main and Second Streets is now in the hands and brushes of the painters. Mrs. George W. Paris has sold ber business property on Summer between Main and Davis Streets to Frank Theise of Hannibal.

Below is a table showing: (1) the composition of a normally fertile soil; (2) the composition of our soil: (3)deficiencies in our soil. Tbe amounts represent the plant food per acre in the top 7 inches of soil. In the table Nitrogen, Phos phorus and Potash are given in pounds to acre. Fertile Soil Our Soil Deficiencies 1 Excess Nitre Phosphors Pot gen ous ash 6000 4600 6400 3020 1440 6720 -2980 -3160 1320 This table shows that our soil is very deficient in nitrogen and phosphorus, but has a sligb excess ot potash. It is there fore a waste of money to buy fertilizers for the potash they contain. True an application of available potash may help the yield some, but we have enough potash in tbe soil, and it would be more economical to keep our soil in some physical condition, so that nature could librate it for us. Phosphorus is the only element we have to buy and it is not very expen sive, especially tbe rock phos phate recommended in a former article Buying commercial nitrogen is out of tbe question as it costs about 15 cents per pound, and being very soluble, it may be largely lost by a big rain. Four fifths of tbe atmosphere is ni trogen and there are certain bacteria that grow on tbe roots of legumes that have the pow er of gathering this nitrogen from tbe air and leaving it in the soil. There bacteria will "work for nothing and board themselves," if you will only give tbem a chance. The grow ing of clover, cowpeas and oth er legumes, is tbe cheapest and most satisfactory means ot sup plying nitrogen to the soil. If the crops cannot be grown suc cessfully on this soil on account of Its sour condition, it will pay well to lime the soil, and thus sweeten it, as the legume bac teria can thrive. Another means of supplying nitrogen is in tbe form ot stable manure. This coutains a large amount ot nitrogen and it should be remembered tbat a very large per cent of the nitrogen of ma nure is in the liquid portion. It would be well, therefore. to arrange stables and feeding places so as to save tbe liquid manure. It should be mentioned in this connection tbat the manure of animals fed on clover, cowpeas or alfalfa hay Is richer in nitro gen than tbat of animals fed on corn, fodder or timothy. In this way tbe legumes supply nitro gen very rapidly supply it in tbe act of growing, and supply more than other ordinary feeds in tbe manure produces. SUMMARY OP ARTICLES. Tbe soil needs phosphorus, which should be supplied with either steamed bone meal or -rock phosphate. (Continued on Page 9.) "
