‘ greatly robbed of it.
There is another reason for rot-
ation that is nearly as valuable as
the one just mentoined. Insect
life destorys on an average of one
fourth of all crops in this country.
With a few exceptions, insects
• have-choice plants on which to feed
and the bug that eats one crop will
seldom bother a different kind of
crop. Now the habit of insects
is generally that they either go in-
to winter quarters or lay their
eggs where they fed that year and
if the cron has been changed the
bug coming out of winter quarters
or just hachted has nothing to sub-
sist upon while finding its food in
a different part of the field, so
Most of the farmers understand
the value of rotation and practice
it to some extent, but the reason
why it is not practiced by them
more is the usual inconvepience of
it. Sometimes it is figured that
| while tri'e yield wiil be less the
extra expense of cultivating land
in C9ttun that has become foul in
other croDs would be more than the
amobnt made by properly rotating.
This conclusion may be correct if
the ordinary methods of farnfing
are to be continued but where
other progressive lines are also
adopted the preceding crop need
not get the land foul. This refers
to more intensive cultivation,
planting less and cultivating more
and instead of weeds and grass
grow peas or rye or oats in the
The News believes that the best
rotation for Jack county would
be cotton, corn and peas, oats fol-
lowed by peas or sorghum, or peas
and sorghum mixed to be powed
under in the fall. Our lands need
more nitrogen and badly'needs hu-
mus and this process would give
both and lots of them. By this
means the land would never get
foul and the growing crops would
not be damaged by the violent cul-
tivation necessary to rid the crop
of grass and weeds. Instead of
sorghum and peas on oat stubble available
Laguna or June corn and peas could
be used and by this means pay for
the work and seed would be had

to wait for another crop.

Rotation of Crops.
i The crop of 1909 convinced a
great many people the value of ro-
tation of crops as the difference in
the yields where crops were ro-
tated was very clear.. This dif-
ference occurs every year, ,.but
when there is a fair average crop
the difference can not be seen so
For instance the differenec be-
tween five 'and eight bushels of
corn to the acre is very marked,
while the difference between 25 and
40 bushe? is- not so readily noticed,
yet they are in the same propor-
The reasons for rotation are very
simple. Plants feed like animals
and a good portion of the food is
drawn from the soil. While differ-
ent plants : all feed " upon the same j
elements, each one has a choice of
food which it feeds upon more than
it does the others. Stirring and
cultivationg, heat, air and mois-
. ture prepares the food so the plants
can use it. So while there is one
.plant growing and using more of
its certain choice food, the culti-
vating of this plant with the air,
light, heat and moisture, is busily
preparing Ahe food for another
plant for the next years crop,
while if the same crop was planted
