At this meeting tho following resol- utfim wua presented: "Tliat in tiie ojilnloh of this Hoard It IB absolutely necessary that the 'position of man- aging director should-be doctored va- cant." While the majority of the directors expressed' themselves as displeased with the'manner In which the affairs of the company had been conducted, the above; resolution-, received only four of'the'five votes necessary to secure Us- passage.

TREATMENT OF THE SOIL by E Houit, Colorado Experiment Station, fort Collins, Colorado. It IB a well known fict that ground which is kept evapor- ate much less water than n-soil which s packed on top. which escapes into the air IB absolutely so far aa the plants growing; m that particular field are concerned, And if anvthing can, be done to hold thin moia turo m the ground that It may reach the roots of the growing crop, It s of course the thing to and will prove a benefit to ths plant growing iii the fleld Some years ago one ot the repre- sentatives from the Agricultural Col ege was i lElting an up-to date farmer n the country, and the.farmer.showed him a field of wheat iwhich illiiitritad ;hls harrowing in a remarkable man- ner. x A storm had pased that BftctJon if and about due and a half nches of rain It.had been dashing shower and.had packed the surface of the ground considerably. The gram was from four to aix inches ligh, and the farmer had beea advised o harrow the ground to prevent evap- oration. Pie sent man to-do he -nho hitched on to tbe har cw and dragged it diagonally across he field.of wheat, around he outside of the or Ix times. He then became rdis'euited with the work because ;it appanrad hat be was dragging out much of he grain and reported the r who ordered the work discon- tinued. By the time the grain bad headed the marks of the harrowed Mctloni could be plainly Been The place where It had been dragged diagonally across the field produced grain at least eight or ten Inches higher than that on either side which had not been bar. rowed and along the edges of the field the grain was In a like condition t grain of the field that; had not been touched b> the harrow nas not to be compared the harrowed grain, either In appearance, size of or heads of grain The yield from the harrowed portion was practically double that from the tion. It simply shows that the htrrowinf and loosening of the surface soil, even though it did destroy some ot the plants, conserved the moisture and benefited those plants that were left in such a marked degree tbft it ma- terially Increased the yield from that field and shows that this practice could be employed to advantage by all Farming GUILTY OF- MANSLAUGHTER, Mooie June disagreement tonight the jury- brought in a verdict of mane laughter t the end of a five hour The verdict was received at.10.40 'p.m.; and Vitror Erickson, farmer, of kins, was remanded for ence for the manslaughter of Erickson aged years nine monthv Good Meals at Camp Comfort The at Camp Comfort are using the tame itove that they had lut year.
