E%K Shells May Have Some Value For Soil Egg shells have a lime value for soil but require special handling, In «h» opinion of ;;. ,/' firkins, proof soil «t Iowa State (Jol- ger. Here is an interesting item in connection with the judge's news paper experience, written by Oen- elete g. Savage, who says: "When Judge Talt sold the Humboldt Kosmoa In 1883, it was my brother, J. B, Swinburne, who purchased the newspaper business, the Kosinos, which he owned until 1S9& My firotlier now ta nearly 93, Urea *l tioog Beach/ but makes & (rip took to Iowa each summer for i fetMtttt at Wanetiegter, la.

Firkins advises farmers who can secure egg shells for the hauling to get them on corn gronnd at once. Witb the constant cultivation of the corn, the eggs shells will be ground fine enough to become soltftile wlien the 1943 plant- Ing of oats and legumes is made. The egg shells contain about 84.5 percent of calcium carbonate or lime, and A small percentage of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium.
