It pays to prepare the seed bed
well before planting to row
crop. Thorough and ; careful
seed bed preparation not only
saves a great deal iof time in
cultivation after the crop isup,
but also insures a larger yield.
Larger yields ., will reduce the
.cost per bushel, unless this in
creased yield is produced at too
great an expense, and it is large
ly by keeping cost of production
down that profits can be increas

:, After the land has been plow
ed, regardless of whether the
plowing has been done in the fall
or the spring, the land should be
worked down to a fine and firm
seed bed with a disc or harrow
before planting, says' Professor
Quesenberry of the New Mexico
Agricultural College. Discing
has a decided advantage over
other implements in packing the
soil, breaking many clods, and
in case of fall plowing, eiiminat
the young weeds that have be-
, gun to sprout. In the irrigated
sections it pays ;to replow fall
plowed land in the spring when
the soil is of an sdobe nature.
, The depth of plowing the land
will depend to a considerable ex
tent on. the time it is done, the
' amount of rainfall and other
climatic factors, as well as upon
. the type of soil. Under irriga-
; tion, plowing should be deep, es
pecially done in the fall.. Heavy
. adobe soil responds more readily
to the deeper plowing than the
lio-ht soil. Where fall or win
der breaking is practical in sec
tions where the blow is bad, the
lister is usually, used. Under
these conditions working down
the ridges with the harrow pre
vious to rebreaking in the spring
is adviable. , It is always desire
able to prepare the land in such
a way that one has thoroly pul
verized, mellow moist soil in
which to plant the seed, as the
.direct contact of the seed .with
such soil stimulates quick ger
mination and rapid growth of
the young plants. .

The American Legion earnestly
rpmiests all citizens of the com
munity to make every effort to
co-operate with them in making
the day a success.
Please remember that because
of the fact that the American

jthat their ceremony is in honor
:of deceased ex-service men, that
it by no means signifies that all
others are forgotten. Let us in
!our hearts, do equal homage to
all who have gone bet ore.

Hon. B. F. Brown, corres
pondent for the S. A. from the
county seat, was nominated for
mayor of Mosquero- at a mass
meeting at that place last week.
When we called him Mayor in
a write up about the county seat
a few weeks ago some of our
county seat friends gave us the
laugh, but we'll bet Ben is elect
ed mayor with scarcely an op
position voté, and why not, as he
has done far more for Mosquero
than all the rest of the people
of the town combined . Ben's
a booster from the word go and
he'll see that Mosquero is placed
on the map. Here's to B. F.
Brown for Mayor of Mosquero.
