What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

COUNTY AGENT'S NOTES (CONTINUED FROM LAST WEEK) It appears that soil below the surface is capable of detaining as much moistnre as it can hold when there is a surplus, that surplus is likely to move down- ward and not upward.

Still believing in some kind of mulch, there are those who advocate a \clod mulch\ in the hope of accomplishing the orig- inal purpose of the dust mulch and at the same time prevent soil blowing. That a cloddy surface will reduce soil blowing has been common knowledge for many years. A cloddy sur- face will also reduce the amount of runoff itt times of heavy rain. OBJECTIONS TO FALLOW Summer fallow has serious objections or weaknesses and we must plan to offset those weaknessestif - we axe to con- tinue that system of farming. By the system of mummer fallow and continuous cropping of grain, data collected by the Government goes to show that there is a loss of two important elements that the soil contains. Namely, organic matter and nitrogen, Orgaalc matter or humus, is decajed vegetable matter which keeps the soils from blowing and has the power to hold moisture in the soil and many other good qualities when present. Nitrogea is the most valuadle commercial element the soil contains from the point of view of the crop grower. Data collected by the Govern - CARD OF THANKS ment shows that twenty-two years, where fourteen crops were grown and nine summer - !allows, one•third of the humus and one-third of the nitrogen content per foot disappeared. The second impotant objec- tion to snmmer fallow is that the fanner Os confronted with the serious probtem of soil blowing. Soil blowing on worn soil is the most serious problem the farmer has to deal with in the semi -arid regions. The causes of soil blowing are two in number, the lack of cohesion to hold the partidles together and high winds. Soil blowing is intesified by summer fallow and gallow is as responsible tor soil drifting as is anything else. It is intdrisegied by too much surface tillage, discing, harrow- ing, etc., Another objection to fallow is is that during fallow the land is idla and brings in no return. Whether the land is adtually idle or not is a question that tical importance to capillary has been widely discussed, movement ni soils.

HANDLING CHARGES REDUCED Grain handling charges of Montana elevators are ordered reduced in a decision by Ches- ter C. Davin, state commission - of agriculture. The order be- came effective last Mcm ray- and reduces the tariff \for receiv- ing, elevating, insuring, 15 days storing, and delivering of grain,\ from 4 cents to 24 cents a bushel on wheat, barley and rye; from 1 cents to 2 cents a bushel on oats, and from 6 cents to 4 cents a bushel on flax. The ruling follows the recent hearing held on the matter at Helena. The new rates are sub- ject' to review .July I, 1922. Storage charges remain un- changed. \The chief determining factor in fixing the rate,' as stated \is the fact that grain from the states selling on the same ter- minal as Montana has paid and is paying a . 2 cent handling charge, whereas Montana for the year just passed has allowed a handling charge of 4 cents.\ Taking grain for storage is merely incidental to the main business of buying and selling grain, the decision points out. That it is to the advantage of elevators to a 'cent grain On storage at a nominal rate is shown by the fact that from 95 to 99 percent of the grain has in Montana in the past has eventnally been sold to the storing company.—Geraldine Review. • An aeroplane, enroute from Coberg to Spokane via Wallace, Idaho, passed over Big Sandy Monday and as a result a good- ly number of our citizens spent a Considerable portion of Tuesday massaging the \crick\ out of the back of their necks.
