are nil so directly dependent uion the

tonce that the best methmla of farming
bo understood nnd practiced by our
farmei's. It Is only as our (farming
methods ore Improved that ithe stut
can hope to Increase In proAliotieness
and eonseiiuently In wenltb, and It Is
due largely to the jnlvei-stty nnd experi

vise such Improvements and to dissem
inate a knowledge of the same.
