DAVISON "\ -City Publicity ComraiBsloner Board of Trade Building Variety Known as Irish Really Was Found fn Peru. The gold of the'indie's was the attraction that led Colummis to sail westward, that carried Cortez to Mexico and Pizarro to Peru. The In-cas had large stores, of thq precious metal, representing, no.doubttthe ac-. cumulations of - many; centuries. � .The. capture of such a booty resounded through Europe. Spain -became for a time the wealthiest; as well, -as -the most powerful, nation of Europe, and this was ascribed to; the'gold of Peru.' But Peru held another treasure much more valuable for the nations of Europe\ than the golden booty of Pizarro. , Carrying ,., the potato . to; Eurtyie was an event of much m'ore profound significance in relation to the subsequent history of the world than sending the Inca gold to the cof-j fers of Spain. But nobody understood the value of the potato, and Us Peruvian origin'was generally  forgotten before the plant becaine well Icnown. Instead of Peruvian potatoes we call I hem Irish potatoes'.".

PACKING SOIL TO , PREVENT DRIFTING m m II a Yancoaver nw^, T/ieepoJ' spend t/our (From Farmers' Advocate). Last spring my summerfallow drifted so baOly as to completely ruin my crop. Because of weeds 1 had lo keep it well cultivated during the summer and It was what I considered an exceptionally good -summerfallow. This year, Ihave found it necessary to keep my summerfallow cultivated frequently to keep down stinkweed and if high winds occur next spring it will IlkWy drift again unless something is done. Would packing the land with a combination surface and subsurface i ' packer prevent drifting? Is there anything elje I can do to prevent it? -J. H., Sask, . Ans.-Packing the land.ias you suggest will-certainly in a measure,, prevent drifting.' The firmer the soil the less liable it will be to drift. Piacking this fall will probably be-better than packing early next/ spring. However, if the land has. been worked up until it is very loose; we would suggest packing this fall and again-aext spring just after seeding,, if you have the., power and labor to accomplish, this work during the spring rush. You do not state the size of your' summerfallow. If It is not too large, the scattering of manure lightly over it will do much tc stop drifting. Evtft.
