E ONE ACRE KEEPS 40 PEOPLE LESSON FROM JAPAN AND CHINA VALUE OF CONSERVATIVE FARMING. Professor F. H. King of Madison, Wisconsin in writing on soil cultiva tion In the far East in Farm and Fire .le makes these interesting com ments: It could not fail to be a matter of the highest industrial, educational and social importance to all nations, were lit possible to bring to them a full and accurate, account of all those conditions and practices which have made it possible for such dense popu lations to be maintained so largely upon the products of Chinese, Korean and Japanese soils. Many of the steps, phases and practices through which this evolution has passed; are Irrevocably buried In the past, but such remarkable maintenance effic iency atta'ned' centuries ago and pro jected into the past with little ap parent decadence, merits the most profound sttMy and the time Is fully ripe whan It should be made. With our population increasing at the rate of nearly a million a year during the last half century It la clear that we can hardly learn too son or too thoroughly our probable l:inlt if roil and crop product'on, anul f.h best methods of insuring and maintaining It. Probably nothing can give a safer measure) of the mainten ance capacity of the farm and farm- era of a nation than the number of people they feed per unit area of cul tivated field and it Is doubtful Uf there is a better place to study this problem than in China and Japan at the present time. -.'
