,'Tly CAIII. VnoOMAN, AFi!ntiint Secre
tary of Agriculture )
Tho best and shortest cut to profit
ablo yields on n rundown farm In tho
corn belt generally Is to bo found
through legumes and live stock, says
Farmers' Hulletln 701 of tho United
States department of agriculture. This
bulletin la tho work of Carl Vrooman,
tho assistant secretary of tho depart
ment. Its purpose is to suggest to tho
corn-belt farmer of tho mlddlo West
somo ways of applying scientific agri
culture to tho practical business of
farming. It is Intended especially for
tho farmer whoso soil has been run
down by continuous grain farming.
Tho early portion of tho bulletin, there
fore, contains a numbor ot fundamen
tal rules for handling tho soil. Thcso
are In part as follows:
(1) Put humus Into tho soil. That
Is tho first move toward building up a
run-down farm. Humus Is tho stuff
with which naturo fertilizes unculti
vated soils tho rotted remains of
dead leaves and grass, ot weed stalks,
fallen logs, plant roots and the liko.
Without humus tho soil would bo
merely mineral matter, Just rock moro
or less finely ground and decomposed.
Organic matter Increases tho water
holding capacity of tho soil, and na It
rots down to form humus It furnishes
organic plant food for bacteria and
plants, and by chemical action In
creases tho available supply ot min
eral plant food that comes from tho
Quo rock particles in tho soil.
To got humus, plow under all tho
wnsto vegetablo matter you can obtain
all stablo manure, straw, cornstalks,
stubble, leaves, weeds and green ma
nuro crops, such as clover. Anything
vegctnblo that will rot In tho ground
makes humus when It has decayed.
Legumes should bo used for green ma
nure crops when possible becauso
(hey add moro nitrogenous plant food
to tho soil, whereas other green ma
nure crops merely mako tho plant food
on hand moro available. Nover burn
straw or cornstalks unless absolutely
necessary It's llko burning money.
Spread your straw upon tho field next
to bo plowed, or, better still, ubo It
first for feed or bedding or ns a mulch
for somo crop llko potatoes, and plow
It undor Inter as stablo manuro or with
tho rcfuso of tho crop.
(2) Establish a sound and regular
rotation of crops. It ia difficult to
mako a general rule as to crop rota
tions, because rotations vary with
local conditions, but thoro aro somo
rules In this regard that hold any
where A two-year rotation, such as
corn and oats, Is entlroly Inadequate
Every rotation should include at least
one legumo crop. Tho rotation should
bo planned with tho aid of your county
agent or your stato agricultural col
lego to fit tho Individual farm and
(3) Select your crops to suit your
soil. Somo farms havo grown crops
tint havo depleted tho humus and di
minished tho productivity of tho soil
until It Is no longer posslblo to grow
pioiltablo crops of corn, oats and tim
othy. Yet such Boll will often produco
gootf crops of somo annual legumo,
such as eoy beans or cowpeas. Whoro
nntmo grows sweet clover you can
grow sweet clover, too, and nfter you
havo plowed undor a crop of that
rank prowth you havo a good start on
tho road to fertility. Remember,
there's a legumo crop for almost every
soil, and (hat no rotation Is complete
without a legumo. Try to find tho le
gumo best suited to your soil and con
ditions, and then make It tho baslB
of your I'otatlon.
(4) Uso drain tllo freoly. Artificial
dralnago Is a factor of greatest Impor
tance In soil Improvement; often the
factor of greatest Importance. In en
ables us to grow potatoes or onions
whoro naturo can grow only cattails,
becauso it Insures tho ovon distribu
tion of both the water and tho nlr that
our cultivated crops demand. Where
tho land lacks natural dralnago, every
thing elso depends on how thoroughly
tho soil Is ditched or tiled,
(5) Suit your plowing to your soil.
As a rulo, tho harder tho soil Is to
break tho dcepor and tho moro thor
oughly it must bo broken up to let air
In to do Its work.
(G) Manuro as regularly as you har
vest. Stable manuro Is tho host form
SOIL IN CORN BELT
of fertilizer, becauso It not only adds
available plant food but also Improve!)
(ho physical texture ot tho soil. It
tends to lighten henvy soil and to
mako sandy soil hold moro water.
Stnblo manuro contains easily avail
ablo plant food, both organic nnd min
eral, and aB it decayu in tho soil
hastens tho libciation of other plant
food. Green manuro Is nn excellent
substttuto for stablo manure, and Is
essential to good farming whero llttlo
or no livo stock is kept. Whero stable
manuro Is not nvnllablc, green manuro
must bo used to got results. Not
merely stubblo, but tho cntlro green
crop must bo plowed undor to mako a
green manuro crop a good subBtituto
for stablo manure. In tho enso of n
legumo manuro crop tho seed should
bo saved, but all tho rest of tho crop
should bo rctumod to tho land. (For
fuller details on soils, sco Farmers'
Bulletins 245 and 400.)
(7) Correct boII acidity with lime.
lilmo is tho one thing most needed by
tho avcrago run-down soil. It Is por-
Imps safo to say that moro poor crops
aro due to sour soil than to lack of
plant food. Certainly most of tho fail
ures of clover nnd other legumes nro
duo to soil acidity. On our soils llmo
is needed to neutralize tho acid. It
your sod flolda show patches of rod
sorrol, moss, povorty grass, nnd tho
llko, scanty or sour-taBtlng vegetation,
and If your legumo crops fail to ro
spond readily to application of stublo
manuro, try llmo.
(8) Uso phosphntcs when needed.
Phosphorus, next to lime, Is tho mln
oi al plant food piobably most needed
by tho averngo unproductive soil.
Thero nro thrco forms of phosphorus
In common use flnoly ground rock
phosphate (floats), acid phosphato and
steamed bono meal.
When soil contains nn nmplo supply
of organic matter and tho object In
buying phosphoius is to Incrcnso tho
supply of this element In tho soil ut
tho lowest posslblo cost, this can bo
dono by purchasing finely ground rock
phosphato. On tho other hand, If tho
supply of organic matter In tho soil
Is limited or you aro anxious to get
quick returns from tho phosphorus, It
Is ndvlsablo to purchaso olthor acid
phosphato or Btcamcd bono menl. As
a ton of rock phosphato contains gen
erally about 250 pounds of phosphorus,
when sold nt tho avorago market prlco
tho phosphorus in It will cost tho
farmer nbout thrco cents a pound.
Acid phosphato generally contnlus
nbout 125 pounds of phosphorus to tho
ton and steamed bono meal about 250
pounds to tho tonand when sold at
tho average prlco tho phosphorus In
cither of thcso forms goncrnlly costs
from ton to twolvo cents a pound.
FEED FOWLS SPROUTED OATS
One of the Cheapest and Best Feeds
for Chickens Feed When Sprouts
Are Two Inches Long.
Somo pooplo complain that sprouted
onts will mold, and tho pans of tho
sprouters nro so hard to keep clean
and disinfected, that thoy aro moro
troublo than thoy nro help. If tho
pans nro properly handled, thero will
bo no troublo, and sprouted oats nro
oiio of tho cheapest and best of foods
for tho chickens.
Sunshlno In summer and heat In
winter nro tho best posslblo disinfec
tants. Whoro metal trays aro used In
tho sproutorB, thoy should bo put In
tho oven and heated until tho corners

ho again, and uso.
Do not soak tho oats too long do not
uso moldy or musty oats soak bright,
heavy oats for a day, drain thorn well,

Thl't lesson closely follows that of
last Sunday. Thoro arc somo battles
ot life that nro not fought with llsta
or weapons. Tho boy who holds his
temper la moro manly than the one
who goes into u light simply to win.
Paul tells h how nnd what to fight
(Kph (! 11, 12). Wo must show tho
scholars clearly tho two groat bat
tles Stephen fought nnd tho victory
ho won ns described In today's les
son. Tho charges mailo against
Stephen wero nuido by "false wit
nesses " This does not mean men
who Invented fnlso woids, but men
who took isolnted statements, distort
ed them nnd by Innuendo used them
for their own ends. Stephen was
changed with three things: (a) Ulna
pheiny against God (G: 11-13), (b)
That he had said Jesus would return
nnd destroy the temple (0:11), (e)
That ho claimed that .Jesus would de
stroy or nbrogato tho law (0:14). TIiIb
great passago of Scripture Is so pro
found nnd so clobely conaectcd that
wo hcsltnto In trying to separate It
Into divisions or sections. Wo much
prefer to nolo tho logical argument
and presentation Stephen the Spirit'
anointed deacon mado to tho Sanho
drln. I. Stephen's Defense. Stephen was
a Groclanlzed Jow, whoso namo
means "a crown." Ho answered tho
charges of thoso foroign nccusors,
mado hoforo tho Sanhcdrln, seriatim.
His point of contact was to respect
fully remind tho council that ho
was an orthodox Jewish bellover nnd
worshlpor (v. 2). Ho called tho coun
cU""Men, brethren nnd fnthors." They
were common believers nnd all were
standing beforo tho God-appointed
leaders of Israol. Stephen In his re
ply showed that ho rovorenced God
nnd God's prophet Moses, thereby nn
Bworing tho first chargo (v. 11), nnd
whllo ho rovcrenced tho tomplo ho
showed that it was not essential to
worship (7:47:19). This Inst was In
ryiswer to their second chnrgo (G-14).
In answer to their third chnrgo Ste
phen then turned upon his enemies
nnd.by direct nnd Indirect charges ho
convicted them of certain facts. In
directly, by skillful repetition of Jew
ish history, nnd n rovlow of tho
prophets, ho discloses tho vacillation
and sinfulness of God'B chosen pcoplo
(23, 2D). Directly ho nccuscs thcso
lendorB of having been subservient to
certain customs ns being superior to
tho law thoy professed to obey. Ste
phen's accusers were, as wo havo
seon, from without Jerusalem (G:9,
10), and his first battlo wbb concern
ing tho truth nbout Jesus. Hln second
great battlo, and ono of his ultlmnto
victory, was with thcso avowed ono
mles of Jesus (G:ll-8:3).
II. Stephen's Death. Tho rcnl con
test of this occnslon was Satan vs.
tho Holy Spirit. Stephen put to rout
theBO men from tho foreign synagoguo,
henco tho Jewish authorities deter
mined to tako hold ot tho problom
themselves and put a stop to this
Christian teaching. Stephen's sud
den application of tho Scripture to his
Judges caused Intense nngor. Ho
preached tho word of God in tho dem
onstration of tho Holy Spirit, nnd such
preaching always either produces con
viction of sin, on, oiso arouses anger
at tho preacher. Thcso men could not
deny tho truth ot his accusation; thoy
thoroforo turned upon him in nngcr.
Holng "full of thp Holy Spirit" Is nn
abiding condition and Inevitably In
volves a conflict with Satan. It led
Stopnen to look up and not nbout
him, and in his hour of testing ho snw
a wonderful vision of heaven "Tho
glory ot God nnd ot Jesus standing."
Lot us accept tho testimony of this
dying mnn ns a literal fact. This
sight strengthened him for his suf
fering nnd for IiIb witnessing. Death
had no moro torror for Stephen nnd
ho was faithful and steadfast to tho
III. Stephen's Burial. Thcso men
overreached thomsolves, for persecu
tion simply scattered thoso who gavo
tho Christian testimony a wider nnd
n moro offcctlvo hearing (11:19-21).
This forco of circumstances thriiBttho
early church forth from Jorusalcm.
Now, nfter a period of perhaps flvo
or sovon yoars, wo boo tho beginning
of tho literal fulfillment of tho Pente
costal program (Acts 1:8). During
this storm ot persecution the apostles
remained at their posts In Jerusa
lem. Saul's rago know no bounds, and
not content with disputations In tho
synagogues, ho persecuted tho church,
sparing neither sex nor nge (8:1-3),
Stophen's success was In his per
sonal llfo and his unswerving testi
mony. Stephen's victory has been a first
fruit ot tho triumph of the church
throughout its history. Tn heaven ho
