Man. with all his skill and machinery, has never been able to make any products half so wonderful as are being made every day In every field on your farm. If plants are to grow rapidly and produce large yields, they must be well fed. About half the dry weight of n mature plant Is made up of carbon. Practically all of this comes from the carbon dioxide of the air. Every acre of wheat will use a ton of this gas or all that Is in a layer of air three miles deep over the acre. The constant mix ing of the nlr by the wind is always bringing fresh supplies within reach of the plant. The farmer does not need to concern himself with the supply of carbon di oxide, for every time he builds a fin; or even breathes be Is adding to tb store of thi3 material in the air. The smooth upper surface of a leaf Is both air nnd water tight. On the underside, however, are manv small openings, which are really the mouths of the plant. It is through Jbese tiny holes that carbon dioxiile la ikon llitrt the leaf to be used bv the chlonmlirll In making starch and other products out of carbon dioxide and water some oxygen Is given off. This passes out through the openings in the leaves. Thus yon see that plants breathe In much the same way as animals do. only they give off oxygen, the product which Is used by animals, and take up carbon dioxide, the gas which is breathed out by animals. In this way plants make animal life possible. Ani mals give off carbon dioxide and manure as waste products. Plants tear these waste products to pieces and by rebuilding them make them once more into food for the animals. Next to carboa hydrogen and oxy gen are the foods that the plant uses In largest quantities. Slnee water Is composed of these elements, the sup ply will be plentiful as long as there Is plenty of water In the soli. There Is one element, nitrogen, which forms a considerable part of the plant, that It harder to get While three-fourths of the alf Is nitrogen, the plant does not seem to be al'.o to nse it in this form.

Certain bacteria that live on the roots of these legumes have the power of changing the at mospheric nitrogen Into forms in which the plant can use It. We shall study more about this process later.

If the plant can not get a sufficient supply of nitrogen !t will be Btuuted. will stop prowlir early, and the yle'd will be very much reduced.- Since nil -tho crops, with the exception of the leiumcs. must get ?helr nitrogen from the Fell, the farm er nu:rt see to It ttat tlier Is n plcn Mful suvily thon "If "be wishes to ob tain n lxrtr? rlc'.d.

One of the fcet ways to keep n field In tills condition Is to np ply liberal quantities of barnyard ma nure. Another way Is to plow under green crops, especlal'y clover.

Two of these minerals, however, po tasslum nnd phosphorus, are not sc plentiful. When the plant cannot ge enougn potassium the grain will no' be Clled out well. If there to t.:o lirtl. phosphorus, esiiecially la the case of iruit trees, the development of fruit is cnecked. Adding barnyard inauun to tiie sou Helps to keep up the suppl; of these two materials. On farm; where little stock to kent or nliPir grain has been- raised continually for years and little attention paid, to the sou it is sometimes necessary to apply phosphorus and potassium in the form or commercial fertilizers. In the eastern part of this country mere are many farms that have 1 come so badly run down that crops will not grow nt all unless thev are red with commercial fertilisers.

Leaving plowed ground, especially on hillsides, exposed for several months during the fall and winter allows much plant food to wash awny. Growing the same crop year after year wears out the lar.d rapidly. Different crops require different kinds of food. By changing crops from year to year no one food material is used to excess and the others wasted. I5y keeping as much stock on the farm as possible, saving the manure carefully and spreading It on the fields before it rots or leaches away nnd by using leguminous plants to gather nitrogen the soil can be kept well supplied with plant food. It to much more profitable to feed the crops in this way than to buy plant focd on the market at excessive prices. T'suallv. however, the nlnnt In hungry for the mineral elements not ! uecnuse tney are not in tne sou. but because they are in a form in which it cannot get at them. The roots of the plant spread all through the soil in search of food. If you will look at a little root through a magnifying glass you will see that It is covered with root hairs. It Is through these root hairs that the plant takes up food from the soil. There are no openings directly Into them, but the walls are so thin that the water can soak through to the Inside. Solid sub stances, of course, cannot get in. so that the plant focd must be dissolved In water before It can pet Intn tho roots nnd so up to the chlorophyll which is waiting to build it Into which is waiting to build It Into seeds or leaves.
