We hear a great deal about the value

some good will result from their intro

lu the attempt to produce the best

ultures in existence, the culture of
leanliness. We believe it wus Wes
ley who said cleanliness was next to
godliness, a motto believed by many
gisxl people to be found ill the liible,
says tile Creamery uazette. It con
tains, In fact, a very strong element
of Itible doctrine. There Is no place,
however, where cleanllni'sa is so es
sential as In tile dairy. From the brush

of the utmost importance. Itirt on the

1'rof. W. D. CiHrtw, at the farmers'
convention, In Ohio, made the state
ment that It requires 1,200 tons of
water to make an acre of corn. He
urged the eynteiuatlc saving of the
natural moisture of the soil by eradica
tion of the weeds. They act as so
many pumps to bring the moisture to
the surface and evaporate It. He
showed that the natural moisture of
the earth is easily, exhausted by Im
proper methods of cultivation; that fre

while lootie foil will hold In solution
twice as much moisture as compact
soli, yet if the entire soli surface be
loose It will soon exhaust the subsoil
of Its moisture, because, being loose,
It parts with moisture rapidly under

that the nitrogenous materials are lost
by decomposition. The materials of a

is a difference in favor of the 300-pound
