The recfent . rains have greatly improved tne course, and although much is to ba desired in: direction, credit is due to the manage ment for the businesslike way in which improvements have been spesdily taok led.

If she grows poor by. feeding a so-called balance ration, then this ration is not a balance for her," and more of the carbohydrates or fat making element should be fed. ; It is not good business to pay high prices-for materials which the soil may itself yield, but Tt is good economy to .supply the lacking ones in the cheapest way.. The rule in the purchase of ex pensive) commercial fertilisers should be ta select those that supply in the. best forms and at the lowest cost tli3 plant food whioh the crop needs and the soils fail to furnish.
