tout Crops for Green Manur-
Green manuring is one of the oldest
methods to increase the productiv-
ity of the soil. It varies according to
the origrin of the soil. The important
object of green manuring is adding
humus to the soil. Deep rooted plants
ate preferred rather than shallow
rooted because they penetrate into
the subsoil and then allows water to
hud its way, especially after the
Leguminous plants are much more
valuable for green manuring because
they not only provide humus but
have the ability to use* the nitrogen
of the air which after their decay,
they add to the soil.
Green manuring can only be recom-
mended under certain conditions. It
is a success in upbuilding poor soils
and improving adobe soils. It cannot
be recommended on good soils unless
is to add humus or nitrogen. An ob-
jection to green manure crops lies in
the fact that it sometimes takes the
place of regular crops and is a loss
to the crop of that season. Sooner or
later however, the humus in the soil
becomes depleted and should be re-
In the United States there are not
less than fifteen leguminous crops
tlia are grown extensively. A few of
these are the cowpeas, alfalfa, soy
beans and several kinds of clover. Le-
guminous plants may be classed in
three groups, (1) summer annual, in-
cluding cowpeas, and soy beans, (2)
winter annual, as clover; (3) bien-
nials or perennials, embracing alfal
fa and some clovers. In some places
tiic culture of red clover is no longer
profitable owing to certain diseases.
It was known even in ancient times
that larger crops of various kinds
could be produced on land that had
produced clover the previous season ;
an examination of the leguminous
root will reveal on many of them a
tubercule sometimes in large num-
bers, varying in size and shape ac-
cording to the plant. Many people
have proven that when legunimous
plants have these tubercules on the
root they make use of the nitrogen
of the air, when they are minus these
tubercules they are powerless to do
so. These tubercules are cuased by
a certain kind of bacteria.
For the first time the legmuinous
plant is sown it has none of these
tubercules until the, field has been
thoroughly inoculated; after this you
have a full supply of tubercules on
the roots. In some cases these tuber-
cules occur in sufficient abundance
to inoculate the seed.
Under certain indications the ni-
trogen in the soil escapes in the form
of gas. This resuit is brought about
by certain organisms, Called denitri-
fying bacteria, that break up nitro-
gen compounds and let the nitrogen
escape usually in the form of am-
monia. These are different kinds of
bacteria that cause such results. For
these reasons it is not good to obtain
too much nitrogen beyond the need
of the crops.
Barnyard manure contains from 75
to 90 per cent of the fertilizing sub-
stance in the feed used. That this in-
creases the soil's fertility is unques-
tionable. It is well known that caus-
es other than the removal of plant
food may reduce the productiveness
of the soil. The feeding of crops is
necessarily limited by the total de-
mand for live stock. Where stock

raising is but little developed re-
courses must be had to fertilizers,
other than barnyard manure.
The raising of leguminous crops in
orchards is generally considered ex-
cellent practice, except in dry seas-
ons when irrigation is impracticable.
In the citrus orchards of Southern
California a number of different leg-
uminous plants are used in winter
for covering plants, such as Canada
peas, common vetch and fungreek.
Besides these others have been tried
in an experimental way. It is proba-
ble that the best results will be ob-
tained by different methods in differ-

better results; In any case it is bet-
ter to let the green manure after be-
ing plowed under stand a month or so
before planting the succeeding crop.
The full result of green manuring is
obtained after it has completely de-
cayed and changed into a soluble
Where there is a choice of legumes
it is a question of which is preferred.
Among the important facts to deter-
mine the value of legunfiinous plants
are (l its value as forage, both in
quantity and quality, as hay and pas-
ture ; (2) its ability to add nitrogen.
The value of different manures have
been determined by its influence on
the crop following.
Red Clover is one of the most le-
gume crops in the northern states
and is grown usually with other
small grains. Some interesting re-
sults have been secured on red clover
as a green manure from the Experi-
ment farm of Ottawa Canada. .
In one of these experiments four
plants were planted to spring grain
with red clover. After the grain crops
were harvested the clover was allow-
ed to grow on the four plots and hav-
ing attained a good growth was plow-
ed under in October. The remaining
four plots were plowed under at the
same time and the following spring
all eight plats were seeded to oats.
Other experiments just as important
have been tried the same way and
we're successful. In the case of corn
it increased the yield 40 per cent
more and potatoes 28 per cent.
The cowpea is used more than any
other crop as a soil renovator in the
south. The cowpea is characterized
by remarkable ability to grow in poor
soil and to cover the soil so densely
as to choke out most weeds. It usual-
ly has an abundance of tubercules
on its roots, whether the soil has
been inoculated or not. More manure
experiments in this country have
been conducted to determine the ef-
fect of cowpea's than all our other
leguminous crops combined. On poor-
est soils careful experiments show
that it is best to use the cowpea as
hay or pasture and then plow under
the stubble, than t o plow under tnc
whole crop. Cowpeas are one of the
finest crops for feeding.
The Soy bean is adpated to a much
wider range of climate than the cow-
pea, as it is raised in Massachusetts
and Ontario. As a forage crop it
ranks above the pea. The seed is
much cheaper than the cowpea ; the
cost usually is two-thirds as much.
The Velvet Bean has been tested
in many places in comparison with
the cowpea and is objectional on ac-
count of a vinv habit, which renders
a difficulty to plow’ under. Compari-
sons of all results obtained showed
that there is no difference in regard
to fertilizing value between Velvet
Beans and Cowpeas.
Crimson clover is much grown as a
green manure and forage plant, i • is
kind of clover gives the best results
in late summer about July and Sep-
tember. Crimson clover is also val-
uable as a cover crop in addition to
green manure. In a region in the
Middle Atlantic states, one man suc-
ceeded in raising thirty-five bushels
of wheat where never before had
been raised but sixteen bushels.
Sweet clover is a biennial plant,
somewhat weedy in nature, but can,bc
raised on almost any kind of soil.
Owing to the bitterness of the herb-
age it is not much liked by stock.
Canada peas arc grown mainly in
the northern part of the United Stat-
es and Canada. At present time Can-
ada peas are being used more than
any other legume in the citrus or-
chards of California.
Two vetches arc cultivated in the
United States, the common vetch, or
tares, and the hairy, ov Russian
vetch. In the northern states the
common vetch is very likely to win-
ter kill. Hairy vetch in a way is very
much like the common vetch, but is
decidedly more cold resistant. In fact
it is more resistant to cold than any
other leguminous plant.
The Tangier pea is a native of
North Africa and has been tested
quite extensively in California. I lie
hay is eaten readily by horses and it
is believed that it will become an im-

LETTER FROM BATTLE FRONT
Following is a letter from a soldier
in the armies of Europe, out on the
battle line, and he tells a simple
story to his loved ones, all uncons-
cious of Ins ii uc ucvoiion to country,
love of liberty, and peerless heroism.
The writer of the letter is a brother-
in-law of Mr. William Bender of this
city, and will doubtless prove of in-
terest both to those personally inter-
ested and to others who admire
bravery and devotion to a cause.
The letter follows:
. Arkonna, France, Dec. 25.
Christmas in the enemy’s land.
Dear wife, mother and children:
T \am 11 urrit^ ynu oaoin n lirwu
from the enemy’s land. For three
nights I have not closed my eyes. To-
night is the fourth and the Holy
night. We must be on the lookout
all the more tonight, as the French
do not celebrate Christmas as we
do; they have their biggest day on
New Year. Dear wife, Christmas eve
we were all remembered. Every sol-
dier in our regiment received a little
box, which was made up by the lit-
tle children in Germany. Everybody
was of course anxious to see what his
box contained. In my box was choco-
lates, sweet cakes, apples, nuts, and
a nice handkerchief. We were all as
proud as little children. We lighted
our candles on a Christmas tree and
sang songs as we did at home, of
course in a verw low voice as we are
near the enemy’s lines. But about 6
o’clock it seemed like my heart would
break and I had a good cry. I thought
of the dear ones at home, w’ife, child-
ren and mother. As yon ail have to
celebrate Christmas and I couldn’t
be in your company. But it wont do
to break down as a good Christian
and German soldier. We must all
stand as men and do our duty, no
matter how hard and sad the part-
ing from our dear ones. I am thank-
ful that we arc alive to celebrate
Christmas even in the enemy’s land
not the enemy in our fatherland;
that would be much worse. For din-
ner we had sour kraut, boiled pota-
toes, bacon and dry fruit. Our cap-
tain made a speech to us and also
gave up a happy Christmas greeting
from our Crown Prince, leader of our
army, and every soldier from his ar-

Well dear wife, I have told you
now how I have spent Christmas.
Write me a long letter and tell me
all about your Christmas. Will close,
with many regards and kisses from
your loving husband, the father and
son, Con rat Grau.
P. S. I got a package from Fritz
Grau and one from Albert Lemer.
Tell them for me many thanks and
write me lots from my native land.

Millions of $$
Did you know?
The lighting company is in a continual struggle for the
benefit of its customers.
Millions of dollars are expended each year by local light-
ing companies in the United States for the direct benefit of the
public. In most cases the improvements are for the public and
cause the Company to actually lose money.
Dont’ think even for a moment that the Company is un-
selfish in making these sacrifices.
The shrewd, experienced, highly trained men who direct
the policy of the modern Electric Company have long since
discarded the idea that a light company is anything other than
an investment proposition. They have adopted the policy,
“the greatest good for the largest number; special privileges
They strive to supply the public with the most efficient
service at as small cost as possible. Again don’t say unsel-
fish. They want to put electric light, power, and heat within
the reach of every citizen living in the community in which
the Company operates.
Are not you, the consumer, just as selfish as the lighting
Why not join the Company in their effort to improve their
service and your lighting efficiency by bringing your lighting
problems to the company and getting the benefit of the co-op-
eration of their experts. They may be able to help you, if not
they will frankly tell you so. You can be sure they will do all
within their power.
Service and courtesv. is the motto of this comnanv—THE
COMPANY THAT IS YOUR COMPANY. * '
You are invited to make u$e of the service that is em-
ployed for your benefit.
With your aid we can and will make this Company second
to none in the United States.
Again that unselfishness.
