SOILS OF NEBRASKA
CHANGES EFFECTED BY CULTI
VATION OF THE SAME.
Results of the Analyses of Many
Samples of Nebraska Soil Taken
at Different Depths.
Tho Nebraska Experiment Station
has Just Issued Hullotln No. ill, en
titled, "Changes In the Composition of
tho Loess Soils of Nebraska Caused
Tho bulletin Is Issued as a prelimi
nary answer to the often aBked ques
tion: "To whnt extent has tho fer
tility of the soil of Nebraska been de
pleted and what will bo the result of
the continuance of tho present
methods of farming?" Tho analyses
reported In the bulletin Indicate
wherein tho chief changes In compo
sition have taken place during tho
past thirty to fifty years of cultivation
and also wherein the most rapid
changes of the future nre to be ex
pected. Tho term "loess," while still moro
or less unfamiliar to the farmers, will
gradually become well known to them,
as it Ib the name of the deep, uni
form, stoue-rree, heavy loam soil
which covers nearly all the southeast
ern half of the state.
Tho bulletin gives the results of
tho analyses of many samples of soil
taken at different depths ' from tho
surface Inch to the sixth foot. It also
shows tho composition of the surface
soil of prairie Holds compared with
that of adjacent long cultivated Holds
the history of which Is known.
It would appear from the analyses
that tho only form of plant food that
has as yet shown a diminution suf
ficient to he detected by chemical ana
lysis Is nitrogen. The only Import
ant soil constituents, whether used
as plant food or not, that have de
clined appreciably after thirty to fifty
years of cultivation, aro the nitrogen
and the organic matter. These two
constituents fall and rise together.
They decrease rapidly In amount from
tho surface downward. Accordingly
tho washing away or blowing away of
the surface soil will niako the soil
poorer in these constituents. The
greatest losses In tho past have been
caused by washing or blowing. The
content of the other forms of plant
food Is rather higher in the subsoil
than in the surface soil and, accord
ingly, Is not injuriously affected by
the removal of surface soli.
To maintain the supply of nitrogen
and organic matter, it will be neces
sary to prevent tho removal of sur
face soil by wind or water in so far
as possible. Further, the burning of
straw nnd statks should be avoided
and all barnyard nianuro should bo
returned to the land. Even it' these
precautions be observed there will be
a steady decline In the cultivated
fileds unless legumes (clover or
alfalfa) be grown or tho produce of
other fields be fed and the manure ap
plied. Uy growing clover or alfalfa
tho nitrogen and organic matter may
be increased at the same time that a
profitable crop is obtained.
Residents of Nebraska whose names
are not on the Station mailing list

Prof. Wilson Strikes a Warning Note.
In a talk before the freshman law
class of tho state university Prof. II.
II. Wilson of the University of Ne
braska law college faculty declared
that largo cities in which universities
aro located are a menace to the edu
cation of the young Americans who
attend those institutions; that they
offer too many sources of amusement
nnd entertainment which enenato nnd
enfeeble the young blood. The large
city offers too many pleasures for con
sistent study by the college students
who live In It; tho small town gives
tho best college atmosphere, and as
a result produces tho best college

or tho stato within ton yearn at loast.
Tho govornor has adopted tho policy
of Insisting upon tho county attornoy

arising which would Justify clemency.
FEES DURING MONTH.

Secretary ot Stato Junkln received
a total of $30,0G1.SG In fees during tho
month of December. Tho amount
usually received Is $3,o00. Of tho
amount received during December,
$25-000 w.ib fees paid under protest
by corporations who thought they

poration license fee provided for by
the last legislature in tne King bill.
Nearly $70,000 was collected in fees
under that bill since the act went into
effect, Including $2o,000 paid under

their charters. About 4,000 different
corporation on the books of tho secre
tary or state aro shut out and a list
or their names will be forwarded by
the secretary of stato to county,
clerks. A fow corporations appear not
to have heard of the law, though tho
dally newspapers have frequent ac
counts of it from time to tlmo slnco
last April. This Is taken as proof
that newspapers have little or no In
fluence and that they are seldom read.
The following fees wero collected by
the secretary of stato during Decem
ber. For llllng articles of Incorporation,
$2,127.4G; notnry commissions, $89;

greatly cast down by the death of
General Diaz, who was drowned while
on his way to Managua to discuss a

General Diaz was u warm friend or

Chamorro and his army are advancing
