Some may think that the ad
dresses given are by those who
have book learning and who have
had no experience. Such is not
the case. Mr. Hull of Alma ,
Nebraska is a farmer of many
years. He has also devoted con
siderable time during the. , winters
for the past ten years to Farmer's
Institute work in Nebraska and :
other states. He is primarily ,
however , a Nebraska farmer and
interested in Nebraska people.
He will be present at the Farmer's
Institute in Valentine Saturday ,
October 21st , and should receive a
large hearing Saturday morning
at 11 o'clock when he will lead in
the discussion on alfalfa. Mr.
Cowan of the Experiment Station
at Valentine will also be present.
Both of these men are capable of
telling our people many things
about this wonderful plant , but it
is earnestly hoped that the far
mers in this immediate vicinity
will tell of their experience.

Capacity of Rocks as Reservoirs.
The capacity of rocks to imbibe
moisture varies with their physi
cal structure. Most of the water
in rocks occurs in pores and inter
stices , the larger part of the
world's well-water supply being
derived from saturated porous
beds , only a small part of it being
obtained from caverns or large
cavities. Practically all rocks ,
however compact they may appear
to the eye , have interstices and
small cavities in which water may
be stored. The degree of porosity
of rocks , however , differs greatly
in different rocks , being highest
in open-textured loose sands , sand
stones , gravels , and chalks , all of
which have great capacity for im
bibing water , and lowest in close
textured clays , slates , marbles ,
and granites , which hava very
small capacity for absorbing
and transmitting water. Some
rocks , however , such as granite ,
which in their original condition
are almost impervious , become
water bearing through the develop
ment of fractures and crevices.
The capacity of rocks for trans
mitting water is different from
their capacity for imbibition. In
certain fine-grained rocks the pore
spaces are so small that they will
not readily transmit water. Hence
rocks like chalk or brick , which
absorb water freely , transmit it
slowly , whereas others with no
greater total pore space transmit
it readily. Sandstones , for in
stance , vary greatly in texture and
consequently in their capacity for
carrying water. ( From report of
United jptate's .Geological Survey. )
