FERTILIZER SHOULD BE USED EVEN LATE "Weather and wartime conditions have so delayed transportation that it now seems certain that many caxs of fertilizer will reach their destination after the time of planting the crop on which it were to have been used. It will not ibe wise to fail to use the fertilizer. The farmer cannot afford to tie up his money until another year, and the country neelds the increased food which fertilizer will produce. For corn, oats, and (potatoes late aplicationa are entirely practical, and may ibe used as late as three weeks or a month after planting with excel lent results. The fertilizer is simply broadcast over the field. Cultivation of corn and potatoes works it down to the feeding roots of the plants. WUth oats 'it acts in much the same way as a top-dressing on wheat. STRATFORD i (Special to The Times) Stratford.

Probably he lived alone, against all animal kind as they were against him. There are well au thenticated instances of dogs thus re turning to savage nature.
