present day. It is now generally con-
—In the cultivation of the land, an
important feature that should be con-
sidered is the ash or mineral part of
the plants. The residue of some crops
which remain in the ground after the
removal of the crop supplies a sub-
stantial amount of plant food constit-
uents for succeeding crops. This res-
idue helps to stimulate other crops of
an entirely different formation and
habit of growth. Too much reliance
is placed upon mineral fertilizers for
replacing the ash and other constitu-
ents of plants in which it is assumed
the ground is deficient. In contradic-
tion to this assumption, the cultiva-
tion of certain crops constitutes a
better preparation of the soil for suc-
ceeding crops than can be secured by
the use of fertilizers. Beans may be
cited as one of these certain crops.
—A serious mistake is often made
by young and inexperienced farmers
in the too free use of artificial fertil-
izers. When properly used—in the
right quantity and at the right time
—wonderful results may be obtained
by artificial fertilizers, but due regard
must be paid to the mechanical con-
dition of the soil. Where no attention
is paid to this considerable of the
plant food is wasted, while that pro-
portion which does become available
for plants, is only slowly so, and sel-
dom at the time when the plants need
Our forefathers relied on summer
fallowing, and a generous application
of stable manure. While they achiev-
ed strikingly good results under this
method, it is not continued at the;
sidered that such methods are incom-
patible with modern conditions of
farming. Fallowing is now looked up-
on as a wasteful and unprofitable
practice, and barnyard manure is be-
coming more scarce every year.
An examination of the ash of
plants will determine the mineral sub-
stances the plants take up from the
soil. It is authoritatively stated that
the relative importance of these sub-
stances may be determined by grow-
ing plants with their roots in jars of
water or sand, to which have been
added the component parts of the ash
plus a compound of nitrogen. Then,
by omitting in successive jars, each
of the ash constituents in turn, the ef-
fect of each on plant growth may be
In that way it has been discovered
that there are two groups of ash con-
stituents, known as the essentials and
the non-essentials. In the former will
be found such mineral substances as
phosphates, salt of potash, calcium, |
magnesium, sulphur and iron, all of
which are secured from the soil; and
carbon, hydrogen and oxygen, obtain-
ed from the atmosphere and from wa-
ter; and nitrogen, which is secured
from both the atmosphere and the
soil. The non-essentials comprise
salts of sodium, silicon, chlorine and
manganese. The latter, however, is
not of much importance in plant nu-
trition, and may be dispensed with.
There is no doubt that they fulfill
some useful purposes, but it seems
the precise nature has not as yet been
—In the majority of farm crops, |
while still in a green state, there is a !
greater percentage of water than of |
any other constituent. An analysis
of the ash of these plants, which is ob-
tained by first drying and then burn- |
ing the plant, shows that there is con- |
siderable variation existing in the pro- |
portions of mineral substances found |
in different plants and in different or- |
gans of the same plants. In the case |
of timber it is assessed as low as two |
parts to 1000, while in the case of cer- |
tain leaves it will go as high as even |
one part in 10. However, whatever |
its proportion, the ash of the plant is |
always absorbed from the soil by the
action of the roots.
To illustrate: Wheat contains 1.8
per cent. of ash; wheat straw, 5.3 per ;
cent.; mangels, 1 per cent.; beans, 3.2
per cent. These ash constituents,
after being absorbed into the sap, ap-
pear to concentrate in different or-
gans in the plant. Potash and phos-
phates are invariably predominant,
and this shows the importance of se-
curing sufficient supply of these two
constituents in the soil for the bene-
fit of plant growth.
In the case of the cereals, potash is
by far the most important ingredient.
—All leguminous plants are apt to
produce more or less so-called “hard
seed.” By this term is meant seed
that water cannot enter owing to the
waterproof coating that surrounds it.
One cannot distinguish the hard seeds
by any kind of examination. The only
way is to make a germination test.

Bellefonte women know how the
aches and pains that often come when
the kidneys fail make life a burden.
Backache, hip pains, headaches, dizzy
spells, distressing urinary troubles,
are frequent indications of weak kid-
neys and should be checked in time.

neys only. They attack kidney dis-
eases by striking at the cause. Here’s

Seed threshed by hand only germin-
ates on an average 10 per cent. When
the same seed is scarified it may ger-
minate 90 per cent. Scarified seed
has had the seed coat scratched so
as to allow the moisture to enter and
bring about germination. This is ac-
complished by a machine known as
the “scarifier.” The scarifier does its
work by blowing the seed with great
force around a drum which is lined
with sand-paper. It is always advis-
able to purchase scarified seed.

usually shows a decline when she is
