Dallas Texas Feb. 12. The Tex-
as Industrial Congress desires to call
particular attention to Class A of its
1912 contest in which prizes aggre
gating $o000 are offered for the best
yields of certain crops grown on a
ten-acre model demonstration farm.
The crops specified In the contest
represent important products of a
properly conducted farm and it is
hoped that the results will afford a
convincing object lesson of the ad-
vantages of intensive farming and il- j
lustrate the three cardinal princi-
ples of scientific 'culture conserva
tion rotation and diversification.

groat state of Texas with fertile soil
that we have grown heedless of the
fact that even a large store of any

quence of !our reckless waste and
continuous cultivation of the same
