Two ; ^ matter of' keeping doors ami-wiu- lilots of peas wore used, the o-.w being plovighed under ^early in Ju!y and the otlip;- wlien 'in bloom. The tares were ploughed under in late July. Two other plots were suinmerfallow-ed and used as checks. The i-esults showed five' bushels per acre increase In yield in favor of barnyard manure fpllowed by a difference ot one bushel between tares and summerfallow in tftvor of the former. AVhere oats , followed wheal there is shown a difference of eleven bushels per acre in favor of the barnyard manure. Times to Apply Barnyard Manure - Tlic most' practical and ' efficient Biethod. proviifed a packer is used, as shown in.these experinlents \x\ the case of,wheat. Wr to apply the manure oh first yes-r stubble and plough under either In the fall or spring. Plouglilug In the fall givesxa larger yield by three bushels for the first crop after application and a little over one bushel for the .second. Top dressing'with ths. spreader on dows open as muchas is necessary :o keep the walls dry. .l''ew poultry keepers have Uny difficulty in' this until the temperatures goes low enough 10 freeze water in the house. Then the tendency is to close doors and windows to keep the house warm. , (This is-the riglit idea, subject to the practical liniUation ,that the house must nob be closed so tight that the supply of fresh air is insufficient and the circulation of air is retarded to such an extent tliat moisture collects on the .walls.' The proper regulation of ventilation infeures pure air and drj-ness ana keeps the house as warm as is practicable witliput the use of artificial heat or speiial provision to absorb an excess of moisture. The adjustment of doors and windows to provide the conditions required must be learned by observation. ' The genei-al rule is to open doors and windows as much ^s is necessary to keep the house dry in cold weather, and to keep them wide open when water in the house will not freeze. Ventilating Through Cloth Cheap cotton cloth and common bur- meat. Be it further resolved, that whilo we believe that greater results would be obtained if some khid of assurance could be given of permanence of prices, especially of live hogs, and some kind of protecilpn against violent fluctuations in prices; i,bolli of which we deem to be reasonable ajid feas- ing its produce carefully. Distrib^iting its produce reasonably. These are the poiiils I would like to emphasize^ because they go to the very root of the prohlom, in other words it is simply a case of production, conservntion^and distribution.

An organizatlun is at work wliose aim has been to guide public thought along this line, and conserve ottr natural resources which are about tho greatest in the world. Unt what good havo they been to us. Prom 1912 to Ifllo the average fire loss in the Do-niluloif was 211,4 millions. .In lOlG it was ?23,400,000 and tho figures of 19.10 will be exceeded by 1017. It takes �1,200 men to watdi and fight tlite fires when-they break out. Seventy percent ot those fires could .have been prevented. Yet we are not doing mucli to conserve tliis pSrl ot our wealth. Look at the timber that has been lost, see what a noble part that would have played In the great drama ot victory. Think again of our fisheries whlcii arc almost unlimited; hut to what extent is fish being used in tho couit-try. The fishing business on tlie Great Lakes is almost controlled by U.S. firms and. 90 per cent, ot the total catch finds its way across the lifte. . Stock Distribution 1 b^ove this to be the 'I'liy and the function of the government. This H a vital part ot economy, I think tlio time has come when the government should exercise its great power to' see that nil get fair play and justice. Ooublless you wilt think I have wandered from my t,ext. that lu rSality it was quite superfluous. Hut 1 think not you will recall that Jesus had performed one of those great' miracles. He had 5,000 iieople with two loaves and three small fishes and with His iia^ial ^houghlfulness said: Gather up the broken pieces that remain over that nolliiuK be lost." If Jesusliad not spol;en, i have no doubt the people would neve^" liave bothered tliem- sclveti about the ,frAgmonts, Waste is always crlmliial; wholhor it be In public or private; but at the/present It is sinful. .It |h yoprivlng those bi-avc mon^ot the necessities they so miicli need to cnrj^y> our cause to a triumphant Issue.
